Model Answer 1:

I read all kinds of magazines because they can be some great source of information and entertainment. However, while they all can be interesting one way or another because of their contents, I prefer to read men’s magazines. Today, I would like to talk about one such men’s magazine that I think is interesting.

The name of this men’s magazine is “Men’s Journal”. I came to know about this great magazine for the first time when I was trying to search for some innovative but easy exercises for men on the internet about 5 or 6 years ago. By the way, I like to remain healthy whether it is by eating healthy or getting some exercises. But, unfortunately, it is not always possible to cook some healthy dinners or hitting a gym as often as I would like because I remain busy with my work, and I just don’t have enough time to do either of those activities.

So, on that day, when I saw “Men’s Journal” on the internet, I naturally felt interested to learn more about it by accessing its website, and the wealth of information, I found in it, was simply mind-boggling.  It literally contains all kinds of health-related information, including holistic approaches to physical and mental fitness, adventure guides, recipes on healthy foods,  information on men’s fashion and style (both traditional and contemporary), and travel guide. The magazine also includes expert advice from some of the world’s best men’s health experts and fitness trainers. And the great thing about this magazine is that it can be easily read on the internet as it has an online version. However, one can buy it also from newspaper and magazine selling kiosk or newsstand.

Anyway, I think that this magazine is interesting because it pretty much covers all kinds of information in order to help men act like a man while also living a very complete and happy life. Besides, the magazine also goes to a great length to offer new insight and perspective on men’s overall well-being by adding new features and information to it almost every month.


Sample Answer 2:

In my opinion, ‘Reader’s Digest’ is an interesting magazine that I like to read. I am not pretty sure where I first heard about this magazine but I think I found my father bought this magazine sometimes and from there I came to know about this magazine. Later on, I have bought this magazine from the nearby paper stand and after reading several copies of this magazine, I learned the contents and stuff of this magazine.

This is a common magazine in our country and can be found very easily. Almost every paper stand has this magazine. I can buy it from the hawkers as well. Some of the libraries in my hometown also have this magazine for their readers. Reader’s Digest is an American general-interest family magazine which is published monthly. Apart from the United States, this magazine reaches to an additional 40 million people of the world in more than 21 languages in well over 70 countries. This magazine focuses on health, food, advice, Home and housing, true stories, jokes, inspiring and funny incidents and many more topics.

The writing and presentation of the topics are very interesting and the readers enjoy the contents of the magazine a lot. This is an interesting magazine because the way it presents its content is interesting. The humour, the true stories, the jokes, the feature articles are very interesting to read. One can enjoy and learn from this magazine at the same time. In fact, it is the most popular paid magazine circulation in the world with a huge number of readers worldwide.
