Model Answer 1:
One of the best things about our life is that we can keep learning as long as we breathe, and the more we learn, the better it is for us, both personally and professionally. So, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share here what I want to learn more.

I like to learn about computer networking and internet technology more because it is changing at a very rapid pace. For example, in the beginning, we used a DSL internet connection. Then, we started using a broadband connection because DSL connection proved out to be too slow. But that too was not enough because it was not possible to provide a “wired” network in the rural and undeveloped areas. So, eventually, the expert came up with the idea of wireless, satellite and microwave internet connection. And, all these changes took place only over the last couple of decades mostly. Similarly, I wouldn’t be surprised if we suddenly see that broadband routers and other home gateways are disappearing because devices are able to communicate with each other and the internet directly without the help of any routers or gateways.

However, I feel that it would be really difficult to understand about these technological trends and changes without professional help. So, I have decided to get enrolled for a diploma course on networking and internet technology. Besides, I am also planning to buy some good books on internet technology while also watching some educational videos online at the same time. Besides, I believe that I can learn many things on this subject by surfing the internet also.

Anyway, I want to learn more about it because I find the internet and the world wide web to be very fascinating. After all, it only makes sense that we should learn about this technology which has already revolutionized the way we communicate with each other today. Besides, I want to learn it more because I want to be able to fix any kind of networking problems, not only at my home but also at my workplace so that I am valued more by my company.


Model Answer 2:
I started learning how to play the piano when I was in high school and I know very little about playing this musical instrument. Now I would like to enhance my knowledge and learn it more.

I was around 15 years old when I started learning it from the Music and Melody society that was run by some music teachers. I was involved in this society only for 4-5 months. I could not finish my lessons on piano playing and have forgotten many things that I was taught. Later on, I have learned how to play the guitar but I never had the opportunity to learn to play the piano.

Since I already have the basic knowledge on how to play the piano, I would like to practise for a month before I get admitted to a music academy that teaches interested individuals how to play the piano. Besides, the internet would be helpful as I would be able to find many lessons and tutorials from it. Video tutorials that are found on YouTube would be helpful as well.

Though I always thought to enhance my piano skill, I could not actually find a suitable place or time to do so. Now, I have finished my graduation and would be able to devote some time to learn it more. Furthermore, one of my cousins has recommended a music academy where I would get admitted in a couple of weeks.

The piano is one of the most widely used musical instruments in our country and I always had a passion for music. I do not have the plan to start a career in the music industry but music is in my blood. My grandfather was a renowned songwriter and one of my uncles is a vocal in a large music band in our area. I love the melodious and harmonic aura of a piano and being able to play it would be a great accomplishment for me. It’s a passion and I would be happy to learn it more.


Sample Answer 3: 
During my childhood days, I used to learn a papercraft at my elementary school and the craft was named as origami. This is a type of art where papers are folded to create different shapes and miniature creatures. Gladly, I will discuss the topic here and thank you for allowing me to talk. 

Origami is the combination of two words – Ori and Kami while ‘Kami’ later turned into 'gami'. This is the art where a good number of designs and sculptors are formed by folding the paper only. The culture originated in Japan but now it is practised worldwide for its popularity. No cuts or glues are used in this art of paper folding. Kids are trained with the origami in their schools but when they grow mature, they forget the practices as I did. So, I want to learn it now and master the skills so that I could practice art every now and then. 

Learning origami is not difficult. It needs a sheet of paper to create the sculptors and designs. Besides, the basics are easier to learn which I had learnt in my elementary school. Some of the people try to create origami with cutting and pasting glue on the papers. This is similar to the practice that is done is China. The authentic origami does not need to apply the external resources to complete the sculptor or design. The basic comes with the combination of folds and a good number of tricky folding is available to give the perfect shape. Basically, the designs are done on sheet square in shape. Using sheets of different shades brings a special look at the designs and creatures. 

I do not know if there are any professional agencies who train on this art of origami. There are plenty of schools available to train on kirigami which actually I do not want to learn at all. In kirigami, everything is similar to origami but it uses different cuts and attaches glues which appear artificial to me. However, I have been looking for a suitable organisation where I can learn real origami. I can remember the basics but with the change of time, I think the area has improved and lots of changes have appeared. So, I need to learn the latest origami updates. There are some organisations which train origami for the kids and adults are not allowed. I am planning to meet with them and ask them for opening an adult course in origami. I want to learn it as this is a passion for me.   

I have an event management agency in Japan. And often I am responsible for organising a good number of national and international events in and out of Japan. If I am skilled in decoration with origami, I could be able to beautify the venues perfectly. The designs and shapes will be around the event venue. As a result, the event will get a special value to the invited guests and everyone present there. It will help me to get linked with the origin of Japan. The traditional Japanese design will appear in line with the modern art and culture which will uphold my nation as well. So, I want to keep it learning as long as I can and enhance my skills of origami.
