Model Answer 1:
People generally like to enjoy their life no matter what stage they go through. Some enjoy more when they are child while the others do so when they are adult. But, as far as I am concerned, I enjoyed my life the most when I was a young university student.

Now, when I say that I enjoyed my life the most when I was a university student, I didn’t necessarily mean that life was not any more challenging or boring than when I was younger. In fact, as a university student, my life was probably more challenging, but at the same time, it was more exciting as well.

Of course, before enrolling at my university as an undergraduate student, I was told a lot of things about university life, but I wasn’t too sure that I was able to follow it all because I very much was a small-town boy who seldom got the chance to get out of his little town. But, luckily, when I entered university, I became way more confident and optimistic about my life. And it was because of that extra confidence and optimism, I became more interested in learning new things about life and culture which I had missed up and till my junior college years.

Besides, suddenly, after becoming a university student, I felt like I actually became more responsible with my newly-found freedom. Anyway, during my university years, I did and also enjoyed a number of memorable things which included leading a team of students for an educational visit, organizing an annual picnic and winning an intra-university table tennis tournament.

Well, this was my most enjoyable stage of life, primarily because it allowed me to deal with the challenges and prospects of my life rather independently. I consider it to be the most enjoyable part of my life also because I learned many new and interesting things while also meeting some great people and friends along the way, who taught me how to have a successful and productive life.


Sample Answer 2:
Thank you very much for this nice cue  card topic. The best part of my life is undoubtedly the childhood I have had. In fact, childhood is favourite to everyone and my childhood was extraordinary, magical and full of excitements.

I spent my childhood in a suburban area which is (...say the name of the place where you spent your childhood...). This was a very beautiful place and I was lucky that I was born in this wonderful town. My parents always loved me and they had been my best companion in my childhood. Once a year, they took me out of the country to enjoy our summer holidays. I was the centre of their universe and my childhood became so gorgeous due to them.

My first visit to Greece with my parents was quite exciting and enthralling. This was the first time when I realised that people in other countries do not speak our language, they have a different eating habit and they dress differently! Apart from that, my first day at school, first ride on a bicycle, first train journey and my first pet- a dog actually- are all so vivid in my memory. I specifically remember the times I played different games and sports with my classmates and those days were heavenly. Finally, I loved reading books and my visit to our community library, that had a great collection of books, is also a memorable experience from my childhood.

Why my childhood is the most enjoyable stage in my life? - Well, I guess this was the time my inquisitive mind enjoyed everything new I saw or heard about. Reading, going to the school, playing, going out with my parents, learning new things, travelling and so man activities I had in my childhood make it extraordinary. There was no tension, responsibility and I had been surrounded by my parents love. I could ask for anything and my parents were ready to fulfil my wishes. I was in a dream world where no pain or sorrow was usually allowed to enter. My parents were my protector and I was their prince! The family bonding was strong, people cared more about others, they had more time to socialise and life was not that much mechanical that we see these days. The love, surprises, innocence, inquisitive minds, unquenchable thrusts to learning, beautiful surroundings, and worry less life made my childhood even more enjoyable. It was magical and full of wonder. 


Sample Answer 3:
University life is the most enjoyable time. In fact, everyone wishes to go back in those days. This is the part that anyone makes a lot of mistakes and then enjoys the mistakes in later phage of life. I am really glad to discuss the issue here.

Student life is the most important part of one’s life. But not all the phases are interesting as it is during the university stage. This is the time when a student may do whatever s/ he wants to do. Besides, there are none to impose any restriction. Actually, almost all the university students are adults and they have the liberty to do and participate in all the legal and logical things and facts. So, they can enjoy everything. Further, being adults, they can enjoy the tastes of life which are not possible in other parts of student life. Hence, I enjoyed this part of my life to the fullest extent.

I was an undergraduate student of the University of Queensland in Australia. Admission to the university was really a hard issue for me. I had to take numerous preparations and also appeared in different tests to get the chance for admission here. Being a reputed university, I had to follow some of the rules and regulations. But I enjoyed them as well as I basked in the liberty that I never had before. I got admitted in the Humanities and Social Science department. Hence, there were fewer chances for bunking classes or exams. But I did lots of fun with my classmates and friends. Moreover, the university campus was adorable and the classrooms were well decorated. So, whenever, I went to the university for attending classes or any other purposes, I felt a sense of joy inside.

Memories never die. I have a huge number of memories at the university. First of all, I used to do fun in the class. So, all the teachers loved me for my fun-loving nature. Sometimes, I made questions that I know is impossible to answer. They actually were meant to puzzle the teacher and make some fun with everyone. Accordingly, I asked them to the teachers while they were unable to answer the questions in the right manner. However, I cannot remember all the events exactly as long days have been passed after I left the university. But I can remember the event clearly when a teacher of mine cited me as an example of a smart boy. He pointed the class that this is the boy who is wicked enough to cause irritation but on the other hand he is smart and never misses his studies. I was overwhelmed by this recognition.

This is really an enjoyable part of life and I am explaining here. When people enter their profession, they cannot manage time enough time to enjoy themselves. Socializing becomes a rare issue. Besides, life turns mechanized. In fact, people cannot do even if they want to do as they lack times for other activities. They may have some routine activities but those are not enough to develop a healthy mental faculty. But during the university stage, there are no such restrictions. A student can do any legal thing after his/ her will. They can undertake trips to different places, read extracurricular books, enjoy music, participate in sports, meet their hobbies and any other things. The chances get narrower in a later phase. And before the university stage, they are disallowed from many interesting things with different excuses. Considering all the aspects, I believe this is the most enjoyable part of my life.
