Something you liked which you bought for home

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 385 with Model Answer:

Describe something you liked very much which you bought for your home.

You should say:
  • what you bought
  • when and where you bought it
  • why you chose this particular thing
and explain why you liked it so much.

[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:

I have never really been one of those “family” persons who understand the household need of a family, especially, when it comes to buying anything. But, still, I take my chances and buy things from time to time, just like I did about a few months ago, which I not only liked but also, I think, made my “fussy” mother proud.

This thing, which I really liked and still like very much now, is a sandwich maker machine. Now, I don’t really think that the idea of buying a sandwich maker would ever come to me if I hadn’t visited a very popular tourist spot of my country about a few months ago and saw a very busy street food store using a very nice looking sandwich making machine to prepare her sandwiches. After trying a sandwich, and a very tasty one too in that, from that street food corner, I told to myself that I had to have one of those sandwich toasters. So, the same day, I headed to a big electronics appliance store and bought the same type of sandwich maker.

By the way, the price of this machine was a bit on the more expensive side since it was made by one of the most prestigious electronics appliance companies of the world. It looked really nice with its shiny black colour and it had a very attractive looking handle. But, the main reason, of course, for buying this particular thing was that it would help my mother and sisters-in-law to make some fresh snacks and serve them to our guests instead of offering them some old and “junk” snacks.

Anyway, I liked it so much, mainly because it could prepare some tasty sandwiches with all kinds of fills in them in a few minutes, and thus saving a lot of hassle and time in the process. I liked it also because it didn’t only look very fancy, but also very durable for rough use.

One cannot live without a family, and even if we notice deeply, we could see that familial bonding is also found among animals.
