Describe your idea of a perfect home

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 356 with Model Answer:

Describe your idea of a perfect home.

You should say:
  • where it would be
  • how big it would be
  • what it will look like
and explain why it would be the perfect home for you.

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]

Sample Answer 1: 
At first, I would like to thank you for providing me with this topic. This is quite an interesting one and I will describe the inner feeling of mine regarding a house.

I personally believe that a house is a place where happiness lives. I can picture a house filled with inner and outer happiness. It would be at a wonderful location but I would prefer an area with plants and foliage. It would be best for me if I can manage space adjacent to any country location as those places usually provide sensational natural views. I want to enjoy the fresh breeze around me and only the countrysides can render that.

Leading a solo life is my passion and so, I do not need a large house to live in. There should be a bedroom and a living space. Of course, it should come with a small library and a music station. Reading books by playing soft music is my hobby. I would also like to have a large screen with some gaming devices to spend my leisure hours effectively. In fact, I love to play video games very much.

The outlook of the house needs to be wonderful. Though many of the people may oppose my views, I would not step down from my stance to have a tally-built roof. It also should a single-storied house that must have a garden in front of it. As a matter of fact, enjoying solitude amid the greeneries will render a pleasant feeling to me. Besides, there should a small swimming pool inside the house boundary where I will swim every morning.

If all the things could be arranged, it would be a perfect home for me. As it is said earlier, a home is the abode of happiness; I want that happiness should surround all the time I stay at the house.



Model Answer 2:
Thanks a lot for the opportunity to let me talk about a house that I deem perfect for me. Well, I love nature and want my home close to nature. It should be out of the city crowd and nature should embrace the entire home. A lonely place is desired for the home – far away from the city life. The home should be near to any lake or river. The mountainous region is also preferred for my home.

The home should be moderate in size and shape. There should be two bedrooms with ample space. It should also come with a kitchen and two spacious bathrooms. I would like to utilize the natural light. So, the ventilation system needs to be quite good. The door and windows will be made of wide enough to allow the sunlight.

Honestly, I am not a fashionable man and this is reflected in my daily life. I do not want my home to look like something extraordinary. The outlook will be simple but the inner decoration needs to be gorgeous. I will have minimum furniture. And obviously, it should be a single storied house with a garden in front of it. It would be a plus if the house faces south.

If I can manage everything together, it would be a perfect home for me. I love to live with nature. It helps to get a pleasant feeling. The spacious home will allow me to move freely inside the home and the garden before the house will help to get fresh fruits and vegetables. I will spend time under the tree shades and read books. Life would be enjoyable. Based on the reasons, it would be a complete home for me.

Model Answer 1: People around the world wear different sorts of dresses and due to geographical location and seasonal changes, the attires vary. I always prefer wearing jeans clothes, especially jeans pant and shirt.

Model Answer: Thank you very much for the time you have given me to talk about something I have purchased but hardly used. I will tell you about the mobile phone that I bought six months ago which I have barely touched so far.

The mobile phone that I purchased was from the Samsung brand and I purchased it from a 'Samsung Smartphone Cafe'. The store is located a few blocks away from my home and I purchased a Samsung smartphone (model Samsung Galaxy A 30) which cost me nearly $340.

I already have a smartphone that comes with better features and configuration than the one I recently purcha…
