Describe an expensive hobby you can’t pursue daily

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 359 with Model Answer:

Describe an expensive hobby you can’t pursue daily.

You should say:
  • what it is
  • why it is expensive
  • why you wish to pursue it
and explain when you are planning on doing it in near future.

[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.]

Model Answer:
Hobbies define who we become and how we choose to live our life. It nurtures creativity and a man without a hobby is like a garden without a flower. I would like to thank you for letting me talk about a hobby I cherish but cannot follow on a regular basis.

I like travelling and it revives my spirit to a great extent. This is a hobby I wish I could pursue daily! But the reality is that I have to work and get back to my regular life once a tour is complete.

This hobby is expensive in terms of money and time it requires. I love to explore different parts of the world and the prerequisites for a tour is overwhelming. I follow a few travel blogs and they are flooded with vivid travel stories and fabulous travel destinations. A travel enthusiast like me often finds contentment with reading about a place rather than being able to visit all these places. Travelling is not a pastime activity like drawing, collecting stamps or blogging that I can always manage, especially on a tight budget. Travelling involves a lot of preparation, expenditure on accommodation, food, transport and so on. However, I will take it more regularly when I get older and wiser!

Travelling is my way to refresh my mind and get away from the routined-life for a while. It helps me adapt to different cultures and understand the people and places. It always opens a new horizon to me and fills me with unparalleled joys. It has enhanced my confidence and self-reliance and I am happy to have grown a passion for travelling.

Umm, I am planning to visit Malaysia, a country located in Southeast Asia. I will probably go there in this coming December and stay for around a week. I wish to explore the life of Asian people and their culture and I believe visiting Malaysia would add some excellent memories.
