Talk about a hobby one of your friends has.

You should say:

  • What is it
  • Who has it
  • What s/he does for it

and explain why this is a good or bad hobby.

Sample Answer:
Many of my friends have hobbies that they particularly enjoy and some of those hobbies are very common while some of them are very interesting. One of my friends, whose name is (...say a name...), collects autographs of famous people and this is in my opinion, is an interesting hobby. This friend is nurturing this hobby for more than 15 years and he has a good collection of autographs of many famous personalities of our country as well as some internationally renowned persons.

In the early childhood, we were surprised to notice that he has a great courage and patience to go near a famous person even in tight security and finally taking this person's autograph. We sometimes enjoyed it and sometimes we found ourself surprised by the amount of effort and passion he could put on it. Later on, we thought that it is an adolescence passion would go away with time. But surprisingly he still has this same hobby and a few months back when he showed me his collection of autographs, I was simply speechless. He has a collection of more than 2000 autographs in his diary, books and in other places including many world-renowned writers, politicians, actors, players and other famous people.

I value his passion and inspiration of collecting the autograph and that's why I possess a positive thinking about this hobby of my friend. Having some kind of activity and passion is always positive and this helps us learning many new things and experiencing many new things which otherwise would not have been possible. So I would opine that this is a good hobby and I am proud of my friend for his hobby and great collection.
