Model Answer 1:
One of the great advantages of having a family with active family members is that they never really run out of ideas to spend and enjoy quality time by getting involved with different kinds of leisurely activities. I am lucky that I have one of those active families who never hesitate to enjoy different recreational activities whenever an opportunity arrives.

One such leisure activity, which my family really enjoys, is fishing, and I have seen my family doing fishing since the days I barely began to understand the world around me. Sometimes, I feel that fishing is in the blood of all of my family members, including me and my elder brothers, since we all happen to like it so much.

In fact, we are so passionate about fishing that we have more than 50 years' old fishing rods in our house which were used by my father to do fishing when he himself was a child. My mother doesn’t lag too far behind either in the race of being passionate about her fishing hobby because she doesn’t only do fishing by herself but also she takes pictures of herself and the entire family when we are fishing. We love fishing so much that we actually carry all kinds of foods with us, when going fishing, in case we have to spend the whole day to catch our prey.

Anyway, as I have already mentioned earlier that we all like fishing whenever there is an opportunity, but we prefer to do it over the long weekend when we don’t have any urgent matters to take care of.

Well, this particular type of leisure activity is really helpful for me and my family since nothing else brings us together as close as when going fishing.  Besides, the fun and joy of catching live fish and then eating them over dinner time just can’t be described in words. Finally, the loving memories, we create, by taking pictures of our entire family when enjoying this activity together, are simply priceless.


Model Answer 2:

What activity it is:
Thank you for allowing me to talk about a leisure activity that I enjoy with my family. One of the activities that we regularly engage in is cooking together, and for this topic, I would like to talk about it.

When you do it with your family:
Cooking has become a cherished tradition in my family, and we usually reserve Sundays for this delightful activity. The whole process, from planning the menu to savouring the final dish, is a collective effort that brings us closer. We have such a delightful Sunday at least twice a month.

How much you enjoy it:
The enjoyment derived from this activity is immeasurable. We rotate the responsibility of selecting recipes, ensuring that everyone's favourite dish gets its day. The kitchen transforms into a lively space filled with laughter, discussions, and the aromatic fragrance of various ingredients coming together.

And explain how this is helpful for you and your family:
This activity is not just about the joy of cooking; it's a shared responsibility that has multiple benefits. Firstly, it strengthens our bond as a family. Each member feels a sense of contribution, fostering a collaborative spirit. Secondly, it teaches us valuable life skills, from culinary techniques to time management. Lastly, the delicious outcome serves as a reward, and we often end up with a homemade feast that we enjoy together.
