I saw an advertising banner of a newly released movie on the street before my college. It was an effective advertisement from the movie maker and a good number of students were attracted to the banner and went to watch the movie at a theatre hall. That was a blockbuster movie of the year. I think this is a pretty nice cue card for me and I am happy to have it in my share. Now I will describe the entire event in brief.

Model Answer 1:
I was riding a bicycle on a small street inside my apartment block and some other boys were also playing on that street too. They suddenly stopped playing when a car was entering the apartment block compound but I did not notice the car. There was a head-on collision with the car and my bicycle. I had fallen on the ground. Luckily it was a minor accident and I did not get seriously wounded in this event. But there were some minor injuries that I could not avoid at all.

Model Answer 1:
Thank you very much for this great cue card topic and I would be very happy to share my favourite pastime activity with you.

I love to collect stamps. Some people find it very difficult to believe that I have this hobby as an adult as they consider it a childhood hobby.
