Sample answer 1
I’m going to talk about the perfect accommodation that I would like to live in.
Talking about the location, I have my preference for living in a big city over a rural area so that’s where my ideal home should be. A spacious apartment, not a townhouse, in a residential area will suit me best. I also would like it to be comfy and tranquil so my apartment should be in the top floors of the apartment building where I can enjoy a quiet and peaceful atmosphere, as well as fresh air.
Turning to the interior design, I will design my apartment in a modern and warm style and paint it with undertone colors, such as beige or tan. There should be an effective window system to receive natural lighting and ventilation throughout the day. The accommodation would be equipped with modern appliances and air-conditioning for comfort and convenience. It will also have a big balcony where I can plant some flowers or vegetables for decoration. I have come up with the idea of putting a couple of chairs and a coffee table in my balcony garden so that I can enjoy tea outdoors. Additionally, aromatherapy is a significant factor of my life, especially when I am in need of relaxation, and a quick escape from the stressful world of work. Therefore, I definitely will set up scented oil diffusers around my apartment to make my living space wrapped in pleasant and relaxing fragrance.
To be honest, having the chance to live in such an accommodation would be a dream come true for me, feeling like I’m in my own world.
Sample answer 2
It is my dream home as a single bedroom apartment that I would like to talk about.
My ideal home would be far different from the others because instead of living in a spacious apartment or luxury house, I just want to have a small apartment in the centre of the city, it would be quite expensive but I think it's well worth my money.
Talking about the surroundings, it would be nice to have internal facilities, such as swimming pool and convenience store in the apartment building. By visiting there, I could have chances to make friend with other residents.
Turning to the interior, I am quite lazy in doing house chores, so having a small flat with a little furniture to minimize the clean-up would be suitable for me. My apartment must have some multi-functional furniture to save space. There will be a convertible sofa bed, a fold-out desk and a wall-mounted TV. Also, I’d like to have light blue as the theme colour of my apartment to bring the feeling of peace and relaxation. There will be a small particular area for my puppies with some many facilities and toys for pets. Girls always have awareness of their appearance so my apartment definitely has a makeup table and a huge closet. This must be the place where I could let my hair down and escape from the real world to have my alone time.
That's all I wanna say about my dream home.

What are the differences between living in the city and living in the countryside?
What are the disadvantages of living in the city?
It is a fact that people living in big towns and cities are facing numerous problems. First, the more urban citizen number increases, the higher the demands in transportation. Consequently, this brings about serious traffic congestion all over the cities as civil infrastructure cannot develop at the same pace with the growing number of vehicles. Second, the rapid growth of citizens would definitely weigh more burdens on health care and education sectors, causing heavy shortages in medical services for sick people and schools for children. Finally, densely-populated cities would have to deal with environmental issues related to an increasingly high amount of garbage disposed of every day.
