Sample Answer: 

Success is always desired, everywhere. Everyone is after it but not all of them can achieve it. At times, the enjoyment doubles when someone close to us turns successful. My close college buddy Leonardo was successful in attaining a German scholarship. It was a tough task for him to deal with.

During the last week of September, Leo told me that he was going to apply for a German scholarship. I was wondering why he preferred Germany for the scholarship. In fact, there were many other states and we do have some great universities here in Spain. Thereby, it was a matter of surprise to me.

The entire process was tough. Leo had to apply for the German scholarship is separate universities. Owing to a moderate academic background, it was tough for him to accommodate himself at any reputed German universities for the higher studies. Leonardo – a boy of 18- loved to spend time with friends. But I saw some major changes in him during this period. However, everything turned into normalcy after he got the scholarship.

Truly, it was a success for Leo. He had to study the German language for at least six months. Besides, he also prepared for the interviews and prepared the lessons accordingly. And often he practised the language with me. Besides, he cut his virtual social network for this time. He had to fight against many odds and finally, he won the battle. He is an international student to one of the most reputed German universities now. And he promises to get a better academic career this time.  Considering all the aspects, I think it was a big success for him.

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.
