Sample Answer:

I believe learning new skills adds value to our personality and makes us versatile. It is extremely important to enrich oneself with new skills. Therefore I recently learned cooking, which is one the basic life skills that an individual must possess.
One Sunday afternoon, my mother was cooking Honey chilli potato and I asked her to teach me how to cook, that was the first time I cooked along with her. Cooking that day was so fun that I grew interest in it. I also started watching a lot of YouTube tutorials on cooking. Initially, I understood the basics of cooking and gradually started from simple recipes. As practice makes a man perfect. Now, I can say that I’m a wonderful chef and I can make several mouth watering delicacies.

In today’s era it is very easy to teach cooking. I believe cooking is one such skill that everyone must know. In fact I’m planning to start a YouTube channel where I can teach others how to cook. Apart from that my mother has also suggested me to give cooking lessons at home and I would like to give it a second thought. I will prepare a kitchen studio where I can teach online as well as offline.

On the whole, I feel learning to cook has made my life easier. I don’t have to depend on anyone for my meals, now I can cook my own food. It has also made me health conscious as now I’ve a good knowledge about nutrition.
I’m extremely happy to learn this new skill. Whenever I’m bored at home, I try to create some new dishes every time. It’s a fun activity for me which helps me relieve the stress. Specially on weekends I make food for the whole family and we enjoy our meals together and make memories.

 ANSWER

My dream house for a very long time has been my grandfather’s place in Almora. It is a detached house with a large patio from where we can see the Himalayas. On winters, when it is all snowy, looking at the Himalayas is much more peace than anything in the world. For a long time no one has been living in that house, but it has two rooms, a big hall, kitchen and other necessities.

I’d like to renovate the house and make it as per my imaginaton. It’d be amazing to have my study room there. The room has a window, outside of which is a big tree. In the room, I’d prefer the walls to be painted purple and on the adjacent side of the window would be my study table. Near to it will be my laptop table. On that table will be my gadgets.

The other room, the bedroom will have a window along with a small table beside my bed. On that table, I’d prefer having novels that I will read before going to bed. On a larger scale, my ideal house is the one with books, media and bike. The reason I call it my ideal house is because of the memories attached with this house and the perfect location that it is in. Living in the house gives me a perfect balance of being a traveller and a homely person.
