Model Answer 1:
Thank you very much for this nice cue card topic. Zara Home is my favourite shop. This is an international brand and has its branches in different parts of the world. It is specialized in home decoration stuff. The shop is located in a shopping mall named Mall of Arabia in Juhayna Square, Cairo. I like the shop for some specific reasons and a wide variation of the products are really adorable. This is the shop which sells a good number of products to decorate a home with a modern look. This is a nice cue card for me and I will answer the remaining questions here.

This is a special shop for home decoration. It sells a wide range of products to beautify a home. The range of products include - duvets, pillows, cushion pads, duvet covers, top sheets, bottom sheets, pillowcases, quilts, bedspreads, blankets, cushions, rugs, curtains; bath accessories like towels, bathmats, bathrobes, baskets, shower curtains; table accessories like tablecloths and napkins, table runners, placemats, kitchen textiles, dinnerware, plate charger, bowls, mugs, serving dishes, glassware, cutlery, trays, napkin ring; loungewear, home fragrances and more.

Most of the customers of this shop are females like me. In fact, it is only the females who have the right sense to decorate the home. They know what to get and where to place inside the home which is not possible for the males to decide. So, a notable number of women flock to the shop every day to get their essentials.

I like the shop too much as it serves with the best quality products. Besides, the after sales services are also adorable and they have a nice return policy. The prices are reasonable as well and they often come with some discounts too which made the shop popular. I frequently visit the shop to know about their latest products.


Model Answer 2:
Thank you very much for this great topic. A large number of brand shops are available in Madrid but when it is about footwear, I prefer Coimbra. This is a very special store for the local people. The brand outlet is located in the centre of the city and often remains crowded. Since the outlet is in a convenient location, it is accessible from any part of the city and remains open even after the working hours.

The shop is renowned for selling various types of footwear. In fact, it has an enriched collection of various types of shoes both for male and female. They come in different styles and shapes. Moreover, the shop sells quality products and never compromises with the product class and the products last longer than the other ordinary shoes. The shop has become specialised in footwear in the surrounding areas.

Well, shoes are required for every stage of people in a society. And since the shop has varieties of shoes, anyone can have their access here. This shop sells shoes for all types of people. Based on the price range, people can get their right shoes for them. But in most of the cases, middle-class people visit the shop to have their footgear at a reasonable price. They have the option of having a nice pair of shoes within their reach. 

I like the shop as it sells the types of shoes I prefer. I love to wear pencil hills and the shop has several varieties of the shoes. Those are fashionable and demonstrate some special craftsmanship. Furthermore, they have a standard return policy. They settle the issues immediately which is one of the best-appraised features of the shop.

Model Answer 1: Transportation is the most important mode of communication and if the roads are not well constructed, the entire transportation process gets spoiled and development process is hampered.

The main highway of our locality was built around 15 to 20 years ago and it has connected the locality with the main city which is about 20 kilometres away from the countryside we are living in. But now it is almost ruined and there are ditches across the road that has made the road bumpy. When it rains, the rain waters clog on the centre of the road and make it muddy.
