Describe something that you have always wanted to buy.
You should say:
- what it is
- for how long you have been wanting to buy it
- why you want to buy it
and explain what you would do after you buy it.
Model Answer 1:
I have wanted to buy many things since the time I started to understand the world around me little by little. Of course, with the passage of time, I have given up the idea of buying many of those things too. But, one particular idea, which has never evaded the radar of my mind, is the idea of buying a new car.
Even though I am not sure what exactly drove me to the idea of buying a car in the first place, but when I saw it for the first time as a kid, I was absolutely impressed with its look and presence. And, then when I rode in it for the first time (as a kid also), I knew that this thing called “car” must have meant something very special for the people who owned them. But, now that I am no longer a kid, I understand very well that it is a special household item in these modern days and times.
So, why do I want to buy a car? Well, when I was a kid, I wanted to buy it solely because I thought that it was just so “cool” to ride in it. But, as time passed, I felt that I wanted to buy it because this four-wheel drive would offer me the freedom, convenience and peace of mind to travel as I wish. I want to buy a car also because it would allow me to save a lot of time. But, I think that the most important reason, for which, I have always wanted to buy a car is that it would give me the confidence and drive to be a more successful person both personally and professionally.
Anyway, once I purchase my car, I would take it to visit my friends and families and then take them to some beautiful places so that we can spend some quality time together. Then, of course, I would also drive on the road to go as far as it can take just to have the “cool” feeling and speed which I felt as a kid.
Sample Answer 2:
I have always wanted to buy an independent house near a lake and open space that would be cosy enough to live in and offers a great view. My father has his own home in our hometown where I used to live until I had to move to a new city for my job. Currently, I am living in a rented studio apartment in the metropolitan city, and yet, I have a great desire to own a house of my own that would be a large house with many rooms, have a large garden in front of it and is located near a lake or river.
I have always wanted to buy such a house after I moved to the new city where I am currently residing, and that would be more than 4 years by now, I guess. I want a house of my own where I would live with my family members. The house would be near an open space, and close to nature. It is almost impossible to have such a house in the metropolitan city where I am currently living. So, I have the plan to return to my hometown, buy such a house and then start a business of my own.
I will have the house decorated and arranged in the way I have always wanted. I will have my family members move to this house and live with me. I will keep an open space in front of this house and I will grow many plants and flowers in this open space. These are all my dreams and hopefully, I will be able to make them come true someday.
