Sample Answer:
I want to play the guitar. In fact, this is a hobby that I have been nurturing since my childhood. Unluckily, I was unable to learn to play this musical instrument completely. I had tried for several times to learn guitar playing in full fledge but could not manage everything together. But I know how to play it. This is a great candidate task card topic and it reminds me of my unfulfilled aspiration.   

I would like to play guitar in my leisure hours. Besides, I also crave to play this instrument before going to bed. It will help me to get relaxed with the tunes. Moreover, I want to play the guitar when I am alone. I want to listen to the tones of nature and make them real through the guitar strings. I also desire to amaze my friends and relatives by playing the guitar, particularly those who have discouraged me from learning it.    

Initially, I have a plan to start playing the guitar for myself and then I will start playing for the others. But I also need to learn the guitar playing techniques perfectly. While playing in a function if I forget to play or strike on the wrong string, it would be defaming for me. So, I want to know about guitar playing more before taking the decision to play it either in public or in private.  

I did not have the chance to practice playing a guitar so far. I had to be busy with my academic activities and now I am a bit relaxed for next three months. So, I want to utilize the moments in learning to play the guitar.
