Describe a party that you joined
You should say:
When it took place
Where it was
Whose party it was
What you did there
And how you felt about the party
The party I’d like to describe is the New Year eve party that I attended 2 years back. Our University friends invited me to join the party and I had to contribute some amount for that. The party held on a 3 star hotel where the teachers, students and their relatives attended.
On the New Year eve one of my friends gave me a call and then I picked up a taxi to reach the hotel. The name of the hotel was (..say a name you prefer…) and it was a beautiful hotel in our city. After I reach the hotel I found that it has been gorgeously decorated with lights. Our party was in the 2nd floor and I found most of my friends and some of the teachers already enjoying the party.
A local music band was singing and people were wearing mostly party dresses. We enjoyed the party a lot and ate several local and foreign dishes. We started counting down the time at 11:59 pm and when the clock ticked at 12:00, we started shouting with the New Year wishes. We stayed at the party till 2.00 am and all those time we enjoyed our time every way possible.
Q. What are the main reasons why people organise family parties in your country?
A. Family parties are the events where the members of a family living in distant places come to meet together and have fun. In my country family parties are arranged for different reasons and the party range varies based on the familial status. If the families are rich and wealthy, the parties last longer than usual. The family parties are mostly organised marking the marriage of any family members and on some other petty issues like observing birthday or marriage anniversary etc. The family members are invited to attend the party with the other members of their family and the moments are pleasant for them during the party. But sometimes the parties do not remain the happier one as it is at the beginning owing to many unwanted and serious incidents that even leads to quarrelling among the members forming two or three groups.
Q. In some places people spend a lot of money on parties that celebrate special family events. Is this ever true in your country? Do you think this is a good trend or a bad trend?在一些地方，人们花很多钱在庆祝特殊家庭活动的聚会上。这在你们国家是真的吗?你认为这是一个好趋势还是一个坏趋势?
A. Like the other countries, the rich and wealthy families in my country organise family parties and they spend a huge sum of money for the parties. Mostly they prefer arranging party during the marriage ceremony or marriage anniversary, but the parties marking marriage ceremony last longer than the marriage anniversary party. When the parties are arranged, special decorative materials are used to decorate the house and almost all the rooms are newly decorated. Besides, catering services are engaged to supply quality foods for the invited guests. The amount of money spend in marriage is less than it is spent to arrange the family party only. Sometimes I think it is the wastage of money and wealth. They could have saved the money for the future use of the newly-wed.
Q. Are there many differences between family parties and parties given by friends? Why do you think this is?家庭聚会和朋友的聚会有很多不同吗?你为什么认为这是?
A. The parties arranged by family members and those arranged by the friends are quite different for different reasons. The first and important issue about a family party is that you are to abide some rules and regulations in a family party. You cannot do whatever you want to drink alcoholic beverages without the permission of the organiser. But the scenario is the opposite in the parties arranged by friends. One can drink as much as s/ he wants or smoke cigarettes in plenty. There is none to forbid over any issue. You can listen to songs at a louder volume, dance together with the friends and could use slangs to your friends and many other things which are considered as indecent in the family parties. The differences happen for the generation gap. Family parties invite guests of all ages while the friends never invite any adult or seniors in their parties.
Q. What kinds of national celebrations do you have in your country?谁更喜欢庆祝国家的庆祝活动：年轻人还是老年人?为什么?
A. We have different national celebration days and it begins at the beginning of the year with the celebration of the New Year’s Day. Besides, the USA citizens observe some other days like Washington's Birthday, the Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day etc. All the days remain holiday across the USA and the citizens observe the days according to their will. But it is important to offer gifts or small presents to the other people on the Thanks Giving Day and on Christmas Day. Some of the people also observe the last day of the year - December 31 in every year and exchange greetings to each other marking the beginning of a new year.
Q. Who tends to enjoy national celebrations more: young people or old people? Why?谁更喜欢庆祝国家的庆祝活动：年轻人还是老年人?为什么?
A. The days are celebrated nationally and people of all strata participate in the observance. But the majority of the days are observed by young people and the seniors are fond of the days like Independence Day or the Birth Days of national heroes or presidents. It is done in this way due to the nature of the celebration. Christmas Day, New Year’s Day or Thanksgiving Day has a special charm, and thus the young people make a huge fun on the days. So, they prefer the days more than the older people. On the other side, the older people cannot make such fun due to their age and mental advancements with the age.
Q. Why do you think some people think that national celebrations are a waste of government money? Would you agree or disagree with this view? Why?为什么有些人认为全国性的庆祝活动是在浪费政府的钱?你同意还是不同意这个观点?为什么?
A. Observing the national days is a must for every country. It helps to let people, particularly the young people about the history of the country and people who made the history. The days tell them about the contributions of the national heroes to make the country into a free and progressive one. But the observance requires lots of preparations and investment. Some people think that this is wastage of money but is it actually wastage? I do not think so. By spending the money, the knowledge is being shared among the people and the government is paying the required charge for the knowledge. It is a simple issue. There is nothing to be worried about the sense that the money is being wasted.
