We all want to live in a kind of house that motivates us to be something and do something,. The kind of house that we enter and feel like home and where we can relax. Now, everyone has their own idea of a dream house. Let us today have a look at some of the possible answers related to a cue card about dream house.

Describe a house or apartment you want to live in.

You should say:

  • What it would look like?
  • Where it would be located?
  • What facilities this would have?

and explain why you want to live there.

Sample Answer One

Home is where the heart is. We all have dreams and things we want from our lives. It’s ok to be materialistic in life and there is no harm in having some luxuries. I was born and raised up in a valley surrounded by hills so I’d like my dream house to be ideally located somewhere in between the hills. The location of the house will be a semi urban area as there are certain places in the hills that are secluded and there are no facilities available for miles. I’d like my dream home to be located in Mussorie, a small hill station resting on the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India.
The house will be a medium sized bungalow with two floors, a front and a back garden and have all the modern day amenities. The building will be designed as such that all the windows of the bungalow will overlook the Doon valley. The architecture will be of Victorian era as it will give a very colonial look to the place. The ground floor will have a big common room adjoining a modular kitchen and a bar which will have spirits from different parts of the earth. The climate is cold so all the windows of the bungalow will be double glazed to provide insulation and protect us in the harsh cold weather. The upper floor will have a big master bedroom along with two other guest bedrooms.
As I live in the city so I’ll use this house as a holiday home and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located in nature’s lap it will be a perfect relaxation spot and a perfect holiday. Once in my latter years of life I’d like to retire there and live a calm and peaceful life in a serene environment.

Sample Answer Two

We all as humans dream fancy about our houses. So, there are some who want all the luxuries in their house while some prefer living close to nature. I want my house to be a mimic of nature. So, I want a small waterfall in my house wherein I can take bath and then I want my house to have lot of flowers and be surrounded by trees. So, that in the evening when I wish to sit down, I should feel calm and serene from inside.

Then I want my house to have a library as well. Library of the books that I have already read, so it will be more like a collection of books that I love and could offer others to read and in the library there will be my study table and in one corner will be the place where I could look out of window and see the entire nature at its best and have some thing to drink or relax. There will be part of my house, where I will allow anyone to come in and sleep over and have food just for free. Because, I want people to travel and travel with entire safety. With nothing to worry I want them to explore this beautiful world.
Also, in my house I wish to have a beautiful field wherein I could go for jogging or play some games. I don’t wish for the most expensive house in the world but I wish for the house that is the most special for me.

Sample Answer Three

Everyone has lot of dreams about their house. I too have. I wish my house to be a duplex building with spacious rooms and corridors. It is very important for me to be able to move freely and I wish to have ample space even after placing the furniture. The house should be well ventilated and the view from outside the window should be of something close to nature. I would love to have a balcony in my house with my bedroom facing the south side from where I could smell the fragrance from the garden. At the night times, I will place a chair on the balcony to enjoy the night views, especially the moonlit nights.

Although I like natural places, but for my house I would like it to be in the middle. So, somewhere where it is not very far from the city neither too close to the town. It should have the feel of a city life with no troubles that it brings along with it, like lot of traffic and noise pollution. Even more, the house should have all the modern amenities. It should have a telephone connection with which I can connect with the entire world and then there should be Internet.

Also, I need a garage wherein I can keep my car and the roof of the house should also be large as I intend to plant some small plants on the rooftop garden. Even more, it is very important to have good quality fittings,tiles and necessary elements in the kitchen and bathrooms.

Ultimately, I want to live in a big house wherein I can have a feeling of a house and can roam about freely because that is very important.

IELTS Essay #laws are needed to make people recycle more of their waste

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.
Write at least 250 words. Write on the following topic:

Some people claim that not enough of the waste from home is recycled. They say that the only way to increase recycling is for government to make it a legal requirement.
To what extent do you think laws are needed to make people recycle more of their waste?


Sample Answer

In this drastically changing world, our resources are depleting at an alarming rate. The need of the hour is to recycle, so all the individuals and the government should take responsibility and come up with an initiative to recycle more of the waste. Studies have shown that most of the waste from homes is not recycled, either due to the unawareness of the homeowner or lack of services from the government or local council. I strongly believe that strict laws should be in place for recycling and in this essay, I would like to discuss my views about the same.
Firstly, the ever growing need of humans has already left a huge void in our natural resources and official data from the governments across the world have shown that on a global average less than 20 percent of all the household waste generated worldwide is recycled. Countries where strict laws are in place for recycling are able to manage their resources better. A clear example of this is Japan, where the local councils give out recyclable bags that are segregated according to their colours. Any waste that cannot be recycled is charged separately and this encourages all the residents to recycle effectively and produce as less waste as possible. Another example is Sweden, where various schemes have been launched by the Swedish government, in these schemes the more you recycle, the more you get subsidy towards your council and electricity bills.
In conclusion, I would like to conclude by saying that, countries across the globe need to form an international governing body that mainly focuses on recycling. Strict rules and regulations should be made and countries that do not recycle their household waste should be dealt with stern actions and imposed heavy fines. (293 Words)
