Model Answer:

Thank you for this interesting cue card topic. I have indeed had the opportunity to attend many great parties before, and today, I would be more than happy to talk about one of those parties that I probably enjoyed a bit more than the others.

This party was held about 6 years ago when one of my close friends threw a party after he graduated from an engineering college. Prior to that, I celebrated my own graduation but this close friend of mine couldn’t attend my graduation party because of an important job interview that he needed to attend in another city. So, when he asked me to join his graduation party, I naturally became very excited and started to wait to have a blast at the party.

By the way, even though, he was a very close friend of mine, we actually attended different universities. In fact, I studied Business Administration at a regular university while my friend studied at a specialized engineering college. So, when I arrived at his home, where he was having his graduation party, and saw a few dozens of unknown faces (from his engineering college), I felt a little awkward initially. My friend, of course, was smart enough to understand this, so he immediately introduced me to all of his college friends.

Anyway, as I got introduced to everybody there, the party became really lively with people drinking and eating while cracking jokes at each other. We were taking each other’s pictures, apart from being videoed. My friend even shared some of his rare but funny pictures from his childhood. We sang some songs in the way we like without caring much about the tone and our vocal and a few young chaps were even dancing.

Anyway, what I really enjoyed about this graduation party was that we all laughed to our hearts’ content without any holding back. Besides, we also shared many of our life stories with each other which taught us a lot of things about life and realities. Finally, as long as we were there, we all forgot about the worries of our life.
