Model Answer 2: Band 9.0

Well, speaking of the course I’d like to do, I would say that it’s an English course. Today, English is considered to be the most important language in the world. That’s why it became one of the compulsory subjects and we now have to study English from elementary onwards.

I’d like to get admitted to the Foreign Trade University which offers a professional course in Business English. They have a good reputation for teaching this course effectively to a high standard. As I have other classes in the morning, I would like to enroll in the afternoon course. Also, the course fee is both cheap and convenient for me to pay using my bank account.
There are so many reasons why I’d like to enroll in an English course. First of all, English is an international language, hence, having a knowledge of English can help people around the world to communicate better. Second, it also gives us countless opportunities to become more acquainted with other cultures. We depend on English to keep up to date with the latest news from all over the world, since almost all the books and magazines are written in this language. Finally, learning English can really help us in our careers and enhance our CVs, as these days, many firms need good office employees to conduct international business.

Model Answer 3: Band 8.0

If I get time I would like to learn the computer graphics designing course. It is a combination of learning some theoretical aspect of graphics designing and then hands on Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. These two are widely used image editing and graphics designing tools that emphasising on computer design and website designing.

I would like to get admitted in (…say an institution name…) who offers a professional course on graphics designing. They have a good reputation of teaching the course participants accurately and effectively. Since I have offices/ classes till the evening, I would like to enrol in the evening course that starts after 7.00 pm. The course fee is reasonable and I would have the option to pay the fees in 3-4 installments and that would be very convenient for me.
This should not be a very difficult course for me as I already have some background on computing and graphics designing. But I will have to concentrate on the course and maintain the regularity. This course would be a 6 months course and that’s why I will have to adjust my time during this 6 months period. Another thing that required a course participant is to practice a lot. Since this is a creative task and the course teacher would show us how to do something, the course takers have to work hard to improve their skills and creativity.
This course would be helpful for me to do better in my career. Graphics design is required for many jobs and knowing it would be a great advantage for me. Besides, If I can become a prominent graphics designer, I would be able to work for clients from different countries as a freelancer beside my day job.

Model Answer 4:

I would like to do a course in garment designing. I have been wanting to do this for a long time. I don’t want to be a professional designer. I just want to be able to design my own outfits.

I enjoy wearing trendy outfits. I like to design them too. Actually, I have already designed a couple of dresses for my sister and me. My friends like my designs. They feel that I have what it takes to be a dress designer. Actually, that is the reason I want to learn garment designing from experts. Right now, my designs are somewhat amateurish. I think a short term course in garment designing will help me learn the techniques and improve my designs.

As for my ability to complete it, well, I have a flair for designing. I can knit, sew and embroider. As I already know the basics, I think I will be able to complete the course without much difficulty. Right now I am busy with my studies and I don’t have any time to pursue an extracurricular course, but I am planning to do it once I complete it.
