CELPIP Speaking Personal Experience – Talk About Your Biggest Accomplishment
Probably the biggest accomplishment I’ve had in life is graduating from university. It was a great achievement for me because my I was the first person in my family to get a university degree. My family was so proud of me. My grandfather even cried at the graduation ceremony. I worked so hard during the four years of university, and it felt so good to be done. Actually, I worked hard even before starting the degree because I had to pass a number of entrance exams. Those were brutal! So, even getting into university was a big accomplishment for me. Another reason why it was a great accomplishment was because I maintained an excellent GPA throughout my studies. Because of that, I received two incredible scholarships — one for $7000 and the other for $4000. Those really helped me out a lot! Anyway, getting a university degree was my biggest accomplishment so far in life.
