Describe an important decision made with the help of other people
You should say:
When it happened
Who helped you to make the decision
And how you felt about it
When young people are to make a decision, should they listen to some advice?
Who will be helpful when making decision in your country?
Should we trust the advice given by strangers for making decisions?
Do you think it is advisable listening to others’ advice when making decisions?
Who is more likely to make bad decisions, men or women?
I was then 14 years old and was very fond of quiz shows. Both of us were enjoying the programme and a few minutes later my father asked me about my school. That was a bit embarrassing to talk about since my recent exam result was disappointing. He then told me some fascinating stories from his childhood and how he felt about school, study and other stuff. My father has a natural talent for telling compelling stories or maybe I love his stories because I like him very much. At one point I was so amazed to learn that he was very much like me and had more passion for playing, hanging out with friends than studying. He then explained me the importance of studying very attentively and how my academic performance will determine my future. If the advice had not been received from my father, I might have taken it very lightly. But when he told me how he had changed himself and achieved excellence in his academic results and how that has helped him to achieve a career he always dreamt about, I took it very seriously. The best point about this conversation was that I did not feel like I was being lectured or intentionally delivered some good advice. I thought about what my father advised me and I was really captivated about the idea that my academic excellence can someday make me a person I want to be. I was really enthralled about what I want to be in the future and my father’s advice made it clear to me that I will have to study hard to achieve this in my life.
I won’t say I have achieved an excellent academic record, but this advice helped me to become interested in learning and studying. Things could have been quite different for me if I did not receive the advice in proper time. This is the reason I consider it as the best advice I have ever received from anyone. This advice grew the interest of reading and learning in me and that’s the best part in my life so far.
How parents’ decisions affect their children’s life?
Parents decision do shape the child’s life to a certain extent and I believe that in some cases it is the parent’s decision that explain why the child chooses to live life like that. Even more it is not possible for a child to take his or her decision and it is the decisions of parents that the child follows. If the parent take decisions that make a child dull or boring, there is no fault of the child. However, there are parents who teach children to take decisions and I believe it is a great thing to do.
What important things do you consider while taking a big decision?
When taking a big decision, I try to figure out every right and wrong about it. It is lot of brainstorming, the people around me and myself. I like to talk to people who have been in the same position as me, the ones who have done that. Then, I go on and talk to my parents about it. But, finally it is more of what I feel is right because I think it is good to listen to head because it tells the most rational things to do but finally I am a believer of heart and do things that my heart thinks are right.当我做出一个重大决定时，我试着找出它的每一个正确和错误。这是一堆头脑风暴，我和我周围的人。我喜欢和那些和我一样的人交谈，那些做过同样事情的人。然后，我继续和我的父母谈论这件事。但是，最后，更多的是我认为正确的事情，因为我认为倾听头脑是件好事，因为它告诉了最理性的事情，但最终我是一个心的信徒，做一些我认为是正确的事情。
Do you usually listen to someone’s advice?
It depends on the situation a lot. I mean, if it’s a serious situation and I have to make a big decision then usually I’ll ask people I think can help me for advice. If the advice seems to be good then I would certainly consider it.这取决于情况，我的意思是，如果这是一个严重的情况，我必须做出一个重大的决定，那么我通常会问一些我认为可以帮助我寻求建议的人。如果这个建议看起来很好，那么我肯定会考虑的。
Do you prefer to listen to your relatives’ or friends’ advice? Why?
Again, it depends. There are some things my friends might have more experience of and therefore give better advice than my relatives. Sometimes they both have good advice… so I can’t say I always prefer to listen to one rather than the other. I usually try and talk to whoever I think can give me the best advice based on the situation.再一次,这取决于。有一些事情我的朋友可能比我的亲戚更有经验，因此给我的建议比我的亲戚要好。有时他们都有很好的建议。所以我不能说我总是喜欢听一个而不是另一个。我通常试着和任何我认为能给我最好的建议的人交谈。
Who should give young people advice about their future career? Why?
It’s a good idea for young people to listen to a variety of advice from different sources and then make up their own minds about what they want to do. Teachers and career counselors have more knowledge about careers and the employment opportunities, but parents, relatives and friends also have a different insight which they can offer you… a more personal viewpoint sometimes. But at the end of the day, everyone should make their own decision because it’s their career - they need to be happy doing what they choose.对于年轻人来说，倾听来自不同来源的各种建议，然后对他们想做的事情做出自己的决定是一个好主意。教师和职业顾问对职业和就业机会有更多的了解，但父母、亲戚和朋友也有不同的见解，他们可以给你提供更多的个人观点。但在一天结束的时候，每个人都应该做出自己的决定，因为这是他们的职业——他们需要快乐地做自己选择的事情。
How can people get information about careers? Why?
I believe that it’s easier than ever now thanks to the internet. There are many sites and sources of information which explain about many different careers, which careers are most popular and which pay the best money. You can research the career you’re thinking about just like any other subject. You can find out about all the options, the employment prospects and typical conditions as well as the long term professional development opportunities which exist.
