    i. cash

    ii. a computer

    iii. some suitable clothing

    Task A: Suggest that they give him cash. Say why.

    Good morning to the examiners and my fellow friends. !m very ha""y that my

    brother has #ust received a scholarshi" to study in $ngland. %y relatives and would like

    to give him a s"ecial gift. &e all think that the best gift is money because it will be very

    useful for him.

    The first reason is with cash he can buy the things that he needs when he gets

    there. There will me a lot of things that he will need like new books' stationery' clothes

    and food. (e will also need to "ay for trans"ortation like taking the bus or train to go to

    the university cam"us. As we know' it is very ex"ensive in $ngland so any money we

    give him will be very useful.

    Secondly' my brother can use the money to buy a mobile "hone when he gets

    to$ngland. think this is very im"ortant in case of emergencies so we can contact him

    easily. )urthermore' he can sms us and kee" us u"dated with his "rogress in his

    studies there. (ence' if we really miss him we can #ust give him a call.

    )inally' also think giving him money is the best choice because it is light and

    doesn!t take u" a lot of s"ace. f we were to give him a com"uter' books or winter

    clothes it will be very heavy and bulky for him to bring to $ngland. Therefore' think that

    it is much easier to bring money and buy those things when he gets there.

    n conclusion' these are some of the reasons why think giving him cash is the

    best choice. To me' it is the most useful gift we can give him. Thank you.

    ,an%i%ate

    Task A: You suggest that they give him a computer. Say why.

    A very good morning bid to one and all. %y relatives and are very "roud of my

    brother. (e has #ust received a scholarshi" to study in $ngland and so we would like to

    give him a s"ecial gift. &e believe that the best "resent for him is a la"to" com"uter.

    )irstly' as a university student' my brother will have to do many assignments. f he has a

    la"to" com"uter he can bring it everywhere and conse*uently' do his work anytime and

    anywhere. Thus' he will not have to share the com"uters at the com"uter room with

    other students and he will be able to do his work more *uickly and efficiently.

    Another "oint is that when he boards the "lane from +, A to ,ondon' he will be able to

    bring the la"to" with him easily because it is com"act and light com"ared to a deskto"

    com"uter. (ence' it will not be too much trouble to trans"ort it to $ngland.

    ,ast but not least' if he has a la"to" he will be able to connect to the internet. This has

    two main advantages as firstly' he can do a lot of research online. The world wide web

    is a fountain of information so it will be very useful for him to make full use of this

    technology. )urthermore' he can kee" in touch with friends and family here

    in %alaysia by e-mail.

    n short' a la"to" com"uter will "rove to be very useful to my brother. (e can do his

    assignments' research for information and kee" in touch with us using it therefore it will

    make the best gift. Thank you for listening.

    ,an%i%ate ,

    Task A: You suggest that they give him some suitable clothing. Say why.

    To the examiners and my fellow candidates' a wonderful morning bid you. %y brother

    was lucky enough to receive a scholarshi" to study overseas. &e want to send him off

    with a nice gift so we have decided to buy him some suitable clothing.

    The main "ur"ose for buying him some suitable clothing is because the weather

    in $ngland is very different from the weather in our country. There are four seasons

    there so he will need to have different clothes for different situations. )or exam"le' we

    can buy him some sweaters' cardigans' scarves' snowca"s' thick socks and gloves and

    many more. These will definitely kee" him warm in winter.

    The second reason is we think that he should have clothes that reflect our %alaysian

    identity. This is because he will be a young ambassador for our country so if he has a

    few sets of traditional clothing like the Baju Melayu or formal Batik shirts' am sure he

    will not only look good but "romote our culture overseas.

    ,astly' neat clothes make a good im"ression. )or instance' if we buy him some

    everyday clothes like #eans and trousers with nice shirts and matching ties' this will give

    him a good feeling about himself so he will walk a bit straighter and talk a bit wiser.

    %oreover' "eo"le will look at him and have a good im"ression about %alaysian

    students.

    To conclude' think that the best "resent to give him is some suitable clothing because

    it will be very useful and will reflect "ositively on him. Thank you very much.

    ,an%i%ate +

    Task A: You suggest that they give him some Malaysian foodstuff. Say why.

    would like to wish everyone here a very good morning. As we all know' my brother has

    won a scholarshi" to study in $ngland. Therefore' some relatives and have decided to

    give him some %alaysian foodstuff as a going away "resent.

    )irst and foremost' one of the main "roblems %alaysians face when studying overseas

    is that it is hard to find (alal food. &e feel it is a good idea to give him some %alaysian

    foodstuff because it will take time for him to get used to the "lace and find out where to

    buy (alal food. Thus' in the meantime he can en#oy the %alaysian foodstuff that we

    have given to him.

    The next reason is because some of the foodstuff we are used to having here

    in %alaysia is *uite hard to find in +. %ost students studying overseas really en#oy

    eating %aggi %ee and sambal belacan . )or instance' it is also hard to find the right

    s"ices for curry and rendang and so on so if we su""ly him with enough %alaysian

    foodstuff' he can eat it whenever he misses home.

    The final "oint have is that he can use the %alaysian foodstuff we give him and cook it

    for the &esterners there. Sometimes' universities organise events like %alaysian /ight

    and so he and his friends can cook some %alaysian s"ecialities for them to taste a bit of

    our way of life. (ence' the %alaysian foodstuff will be very useful to "romote our culture.

    4/10

    n a nutshell' giving my brother %alaysian foodstuff to take with him to $ngland is a

    good idea. This is because he will have some familiar food to eat when he misses home

    and he can also share it with his new friends. Thank you for listening to my o"inion.

    Task B: iscuss which of the following would be most useful.

    i. Cash

    ii. A computer

    iii. Some suitable clothing

    iv. Some Malaysian foodstuff

    1: !m afraid don!t see eye to eye with both of you. Buying that as a "resent for him

    is not the most useful gift because 0000000000000000000000000000000000

    0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

    convinced that this growing trend is the way of the future' and it brings countless

    benefits to mankind. n this essay' will discuss three "ositive effects of electronic

    communication' namely its efficiency' enhances communication and creates a

    borderless world community.

    )irst and foremost' more and more "eo"le are relying on e-mail' )acebook' Short

    %essage System 9S%S and other ty"es of electronic communication tools because of

    its high efficiency. This is because in today;s age of globalisation' we need information

    at the ti" of our fingers. %oreover' with the use of these tools' we can increase the

    s"eed of getting the necessary and relevant information within seconds and this will

    increase our "roductivity. )or exam"le' gone are the days of using ;snail mail; or regular

    letters using stam"s and envelo"es and many more exam"les of ;old; technology

    because it is sim"ly too slow and inefficient. Therefore' these e-communication tools

    increases the access to im"ortant information which is why the new generation is fully

    acce"ting this growing trend.

    Secondly' this form of technology enhances communication among "eo"le today. This

    means that when we use S%S' e-mails and websites like )acebook' we are able to

    communicate clearly and directly to our target audience. )urthermore' "eo"le today find

    that the message is more im"ortant than the form it comes in as an e-mail in short but

    clear sentences is #ust as good or even better than a long and formal letter. )or

    instance' an S%S can give clear instructions in #ust a few words and this communicates

    what needs to be done *uickly and directly. Thus' when the intended message can be

    s"read clearly using short and clear information like in S%Ses and emails'

    communication can be enhanced and there will be less "roblems of miscommunication.

    ,ast but not least' e-communication creates a borderless community in the world we live

    in today. This is due to the fact that the boundaries that se"arate each country becomes

    less relevant when information is transferred without limitations. n addition' the world

    would be a better "lace because there is a sense of

  • 8/13/2019 Muet Speaking and Writing Tips

    10/10

    enhance global unity and create a more "eaceful world.

    n a nutshell' this growing trend has many "ositive effects not #ust to individuals but the

    global society in terms of efficiency' enhancing communicative skills and sha"ing a

    borderless community. n my o"inion' still firmly believe that this latest trend is the best

    way forward and if we do not catch u"' we will be left behind by the tide of develo"ment.

    =ur government can encourage the "ro"er usage of electronic communications by

    increasing communication amenities and broadband accessibility es"ecially in rural

    areas so that they can en#oy the same facilities as city-folks therefore balancing the

    develo"ment of our country towards achieving >ision ?@?@.
