IELTS Cue Card # Describe an expensive activity that you enjoy doing occasionally

Describe an expensive activity that you enjoy doing occasionally
You should say:
– What it is
– Who do you do it with
– Why is it expensive
And explain how you feel about it

Sample Answer:

It would not be wrong to say that it’s the adventure, which attracts us towards the activity and not the price. Our financial condition may or may not allow us to savor it, but deep down we all want to cherish it.
I would like to mention about one such activity which I love doing erractically and that activity is shooting. Actually, we have an Olympic size shooting range in our city wherein all types of shooting facilities are available like 50m, 25m, 10m rifle and pistol shooting, trap and skeet for shotgun.
I developed love for this sport from my dad. Seeing my dad shooting during my childhood days made me want to do it. Now that I’m a grown up and eligible to play this sport old, it’s a perfect weekend activity for me. I go for shooting with my dad, both of us love to spend time together at the shooting academy. We both love the bullwhip like crack sound made by the bullet piercing the air and the competitive spirit shown by others in the range .
I would say that it is quite an expensive sport to play because of it’s high priced tools and equipments. One gets limited rounds to fire in the range and once exhaunsted the refill is quite hefty. In fact, it is one of the most expensive sports here in my town.
Shooting is the perfect activity to learn to stay calm and steady. It helps to keep your mind focused.
