Model Answer 1:
It is no secret today that we just can’t do without the internet. Whether we are using a laptop at home or carrying a smartphone outside, we have to have the internet to remain informed and communicate. Understanding the importance and necessity of this internet technology, today, we can find many cyber cafes around us.

While I like all of those cybercafés because of their supports, I would like to talk about just one of them that I visit often. The internet café, I am talking about, isn’t exactly very far from where I live. In fact, the cybercafé is owned by one of my entrepreneurial friends who like to play with different kinds of technologies, and the internet just happens to be one of those latest technologies which he likes.

Initially, when he opened up the café at a different location, far from my residence, but when he moved the place close to where I live, I started to visit that place often, mostly because I like to hang out with my friend. But, while I hang out with my friend, I don’t mind using one of his computers to surf the internet and update myself about an array of news which affects our world. Sometimes, I also like to watch some movies and interesting videos from different corners of the world while also chatting and enjoying some fresh coffee with my good friend.  

Anyway, even though, my friend invites me to visit his cybercafé at least once every other day, I can do it only a couple of times a week because of my other priorities, even though I truly enjoy my time at his cybercafé.

I try to visit this place often because it helps me relax and have some fun time with my friend. I like to visit it also because it allows me to exchange views and opinions on different issues with other people when chatting with them on an internet forum. Finally, I like to visit this place often also because it allows me to meet a different kind of interesting people. And, yes, I do enjoy meeting new people- both online and offline.


Sample Answer 2: 
I often visit a cyber café which is in our locality and offers a good environment for the customers and net surfers. The name of this cyber café is ‘Express Café and Cyber Zone’ and it is only a few minutes away from our house.

It is on the 3rd floor of the ‘Shoppers Heaven Market’ and at the backside of the floor. I often go there to use the internet and take a print out. Though I have an internet connection at my home, I often go there if my internet connection is not available or if I need to take printing of important documents. I usually go there, 2-3 times in a week and enjoy the environment they offer. Sometimes I go there to purchase some computer accessories like USB cable, DVD and CD disks etc.

With the expansion of the internet, computer technology and online communications, the need for cyber café or the internet cafe has also enhanced. People often need to surf the internet for many different reasons; simply from chatting with friends to applying for jobs or talking with an overseas relative. Things are getting online nowadays and the old way of communications, mailing, talking, applying for jobs or even maintaining the banking transactions are rapidly getting online. One needs to use the internet from checking and sending emails to booking flights and that’s why we need to use the internet every now and then. But all of us do not have easy access to the internet at our home and that’s why we need to go to the cyber cafes. We never know when we will need to send or check our emails and sometimes the urgency requires us to use the internet immediately. That’s where cyber cafés play an important role. They have all the arrangement of using the internet and we can use it by paying the hourly bill which is not expensive at all. We need to take printouts of important documents, scan those or even attach them to the emails and we can easily go to a nearby cyber café and do those types of works.
