Sample Answer 1
One should always have a goal in life, as its paucity makes life drab and directionless. Although I have a plethora of goals in life, one that I am going to talk about has been in the back of my mind for quite some time now and that is to learn to code. Owing to the ballooning trend of the IT industry, it has become quite imperative to learn the basics of programming languages and that is what my short-term goal is as of now.
I don’t think it would be herculean for me to learn it. I have a bit of knowledge about the basics and foundational level of coding. Hence I think I will learn it sooner than an absolute beginner.
I am pretty sanguine that I will acquire the necessary skills quite soon. Initially, I plan to start with Python language as it is considered relatively lucid and comprehensible. For this, I believe that I most likely shall get enrolled on an online program or perhaps would take the help of online sources to learn it on my own. Fortunately, many of my pals are from the IT background and hence can be of major help in case I have doubts.

One of my goals in the near future is to improve my proficiency in Japanese. I have been studying Japanese for two months; therefore, I can just hold some simple conversations about daily life. There are various reasons why I want to study this language.
Firstly, I am keen on Japanese culture, which is so incredibly unique and diverse. By learning Japanese, I can know more about traditions there. Secondly, I have always longed to work for a Japanese company. Since people in Japan are organized and hard-working, collaborating with them gives me a good chance to improve myself. That’s why mastering this language is important to me. To achieve this goal, I am taking a Japanese course with a native teacher who gives me the best methods to study Japanese effectively. Besides, I am trying to practice speaking Japanese with my friends and watch as many Japanese films as possible, so that my level of Japanese can be improved considerably. I hope that soon I will have a good command of Japanese and I am sure that I will remain motivated to achieve my goal.
