What is Your Idea of a Perfect Home?- IELTS Cue Card
What is your idea of a perfect home?
- Where would it be?
- How it would look?
- When do you think you would have such a home?
Having a home that matches the imagination one has is bliss. Talking about the idea of an ideal house that I envision, I want my house on a hill station. I am an orophile and hence, catching a glimpse of snow-clad mountains during the winter and the greenish hue during the summers is what I want. I can’t stand scorching temperatures and the hot and humid climate doesn’t suit me. Therefore, having a house in a hilly terrain where the temperature doesn’t exceed the maximum threshold I could bear is my foremost condition.
Talking about how it should look, I don’t have many snazzy ambitions. It should have a sloping terrace as is required in a hill station owing to the great precipitation in such regions. Apart from that, it should be commodious enough to accommodate a good number of people that could lie anywhere between 10-20 people. Moreover, the hall should be capacious and grand as that is a priority for me given the fact I like organizing massive gatherings at my place.
I would like to have such a house as soon as possible as the sooner the good things come, the better. However, it would take me a couple of years to own one. I would pray and hope to get it sooner rather than later though.

Part 3 Questions
Do young people in your country like to live with their parents or by themselves?
People have nowadays started leading a life that involves minimal people and so does the people in my country. Although many still prefer living with their parents, a significant number of young people prefer living alone.
Do Indian people like to rent a place to live?
I believe they don’t like to rent a place. After all, who doesn’t like to reside in one’s own house? However, at times, it becomes a necessity more than a preference. To save money for the future or having no home to call their own may cause people to rent a place. That said, I don’t think Indian people like to rent.

Well, life is everything but a planned journey. In case a chance arises, I would love to live in a place that suits my comfort and provides a ritzy lifestyle along with ample opportunities to grow.
