IELTS Band 8 Sample: Describe a free day off study or work

Describe a free day off study or work

You should say:

  • When did you have this relaxing day?
  • Where did you spend this day?
  • What did you do on that free day?
  • And explain why was it relaxing?

Model Answer 

I’m pretty busy now so a day off is quite rare to me. But when I do get free time, I would wake up early in the morning for a run. Although I don’t like sweating but it is necessary to stay fit and stay healthy. Afterwards I normally have a full breakfast, getting enough energy for a new day.

I’m a reader so I always have a few books sitting around waiting for me to pick up. I would grab some, put them in my bag then head to a nice cafe in the city centre. My favourite is a rooftop cafe, which allows me to take in the whole city. It is also very quiet so I can concentrate on reading.

At noon I would have lunch with some friends to catch up on each other’s lives. It is also a good chance to try out new cuisine in the city. In the afternoon, I would find some cultural activities nearby, and mind you, there’s always some in the central area. I love going to these events to make new friends and appreciate art.
