Speaking Model Answers
1. Do you like reading, and how often do you do it?
To be honest, reading was completely not my cup of tea when I was a small kid. Apart from comics, I found no other types of books, articles, magazines, or newspapers interesting to read at all. However, things changed as I grew older. Reading is now an indispensable activity in my daily routine, and I usually spend a minimum of two hours on it.
2. Do you read for pleasure or to get information, and what do you like to read?
My primary purpose of reading is to fulfill my eternal passion for lifelong learning. As I continue to read as much as I’m capable of every day, I keep encountering and acquiring abundant new pieces of knowledge and experience that all turn out to be an enormous contribution to my continual progress of self-development as well as to my career advancement. Now, any sort of reading I do has to benefit me one way or another.
3. Where do you usually read?
It doesn’t matter where I choose to do a reading as long as my mind feels absolutely free. Wherever Internet access exists, I always find a place to spend time reading because I am reading a lot more online materials than printed or handwritten ones in this day and age.
