Sample Answer 1
Here is the sample for “Describe a party you attended before” topic:
I have always been inclined towards attending parties as it fills me up with a sense of excitement and ecstasy. Thus, I rarely miss a chance to attend a party.
Having said that, I would like to talk about a specific party that I recently attended. It was organized by one of my friends on the occasion of his birthday. He had invited all of the school friends as well. Since we were meeting after a long time, it was nothing less than a reunion.
I was excited to meet the lost faces after a gap. For me, it isn’t easy to express that elated feeling in words. I had a great time that day. My friend’s mother had prepared lip-smacking food, and some of the snacks were ordered from outside.
After eating, we clicked a lot of pictures and danced our hearts out. Sure, none of us were good dancers but the videos we took of ourselves on the stage were lifelong memories.
Later, we sat in the garden of my friend’s house and just spoke at lengths, reminiscing the good old times. Right from the classroom moments, to pranks executed on teachers, moments spent in the canteen, our silly fights, we recollected our good old days.

I’m going to talk about my friend’s birthday party. He is my best friend, we grew up together and have always been very close.
It was last month when the weather was still a bit cold. I arrived at his house quite early to help prepare for the party. I think the house can accommodate about 50 people; there’s plenty of space to move around and in the center of the living room there’s even enough space for a dance floor.
At 8 people started to arrive. The guests include our childhood friends, his classmates and colleagues. It doesn’t matter that I only knew some of them, because the point of a party is to mingle and make new friends. So we just walked around, had small talks and asked for each other’s contacts.
When the clock hit 12, everyone was gathered around a big birthday cake and started singing “Happy birthday” to him, then he started unwrapping his gifts, ohh-ing and ahh-ing over the unexpected ones.
The party was great fun not just to him but also to everyone else who attended.
