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 with others for personal and professional reasons. 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 technologies which he likes.

Initially, he opened up an internet café at a different location, far from my residence, but when he moved it close to where I live, I started to visit that place often, mostly because I like to hang out with my friend and need to use the internet from time to time. I use one of his computers to surf the internet and update myself about an array of news that 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.  

My friend invites me to visit his cybercafé at least once every other day, but 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 while also surfing a fast internet connection. Thus it has become an important place for me. 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, it is an important place for me as it allows me to meet different kinds 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 located in our area and offers a good environment for the customers and the internet surfers. The name of this cyber café is "Express Café and Cyber Zone" and it is only a few minutes away from my house.

It is on the 3rd floor of the "Shopper's Heaven Market" and it is conveniently located on the north side of the floor. I often go there to use the internet and take printouts. Though I have an internet connection at my home, I often visit this internet cafe if my internet connection is not available or I need to take printouts of some documents. I usually go there, 2-3 times a week and enjoy the environment they offer. Sometimes purchase some computer accessories like a USB connector, DVD, keyboard, mouse etc from this cyber cafe.

With the expansion of the internet, computer technology and online communication, the need for cyber cafés or internet cafés has also magnified. People often need to use 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 being automated. 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 in our homes, and that’s why we need to go to cybercafes. 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 arrangements for 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.
