Talk about a person you know who travels a lot by plane.
You should say:
- How you know this person
- Why he/she travels by plane
- If this person likes/dislikes travelling by plane
and explain where he/she was travelling to the last time you saw this person.
You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you’re going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.
My uncle is a sales manager for a large multinational company so he does a lot of travelling both nationally and internationally.
He flies most weeks at least once maybe even twice to different destinations throughout the country to meet with sales executives and support staff and he also flies to the USA often to attend management meetings at the head office of the company.
Normally, he flies because it’s the most efficient way of getting from one place to another quickly. Driving would take him too long and the trains aren’t much better either.
And he usually only spends one day or maybe two in a certain location and then he’s back home, although sometimes if he has to visit several places on the other side of the country he’s gone for a week or more.
I get the impression he like his job and being in different places, although he has said that the constant traveling can be boring sometimes.
But on the whole, he seems to enjoy it – and he’s certainly seen more of the country than anyone else in the family has.
The last time I saw him he was getting ready for a trip to Colorado, in the USA, to attend an important meeting with the management team there – something to do with formulating the sales strategy for the coming year.
He was there for four days in total, which was last month. This week he’s away again but not abroad – he’s visiting several sales areas here at home.

I know many people who usually opt for travelling by air either for work purposes or for holidays. One such person who comes to mind is my maternal uncle. His name is Amit Kumar and he is in his mid 40’s.
He is a tall and a handsome person with good physique as he likes to hit the gym every day and he has been doing it for the last 10 years. He is also very strict about his diet. Apart from being a very intelligent person he likes to do many leisure activities such as solo travelling and hiking.
He was brilliant in his studies starting from the primary school itself. He cleared his UPSC exams at a very young age. At present, he is serving for the government as Administrative Service officer. He has been in this job for the last 8 years. He carries an image of a very strict officer who is very disciplined He is always happy to help the needy. Being involved in different kinds of meeting every now and then he has to travel a lot. So to save a handful amount of time he chooses to travel by air.
I remember recently he had to go to Mumbai for some work purpose and it was very.spontaneous so he didn’t had time to book a flight, so he asked me to book a flight ticket for him. He is dedicated to his work and does not like to delay hence this is one reason he likes to travel by air.
Before attaining this position he used to teach at a secondary school for specially abled children. He taught children in many areas of the country; again where he used to travel by air . As he is apart of my family and I have known him for a very long time, I get a lot of motivation from him and I see him as my role model. Not just professional life but he is always concerned towards family issues too.
I believe because of his hard work and dedication he has achieved a good life. Looking up to his success story gives me the motivation to become a person like him in life.
