Describe a time when you studied at a friend’s home.

You should say :-

  • When did you study?
  • why did you study?
  • How was the experience?
  • How did you feel about it?

Once, while I was in school, I went to study at a friend’s house. We had a big project due in a couple of days and we wanted to work on it together. My friend’s house was the perfect place to study because it was quiet and had a lot of space.

We set up our laptops on the dining room table and got to work. We took turns researching and writing, and we also made sure to take breaks to stretch our legs and grab snacks. We were making good progress and were on track to finish the project on time.

However, halfway through the afternoon, the power went out. We were in the middle of a big storm and the wind had knocked down a power line. We were a little bit worried about how we were going to finish the project without electricity, but we decided to make the best of it.

We lit some candles and continued working by the dim light. We were able to use our laptops for a little while longer thanks to the battery power. We were laughing and joking about the situation. It was a fun, unexpected experience that made the project feel a bit more interesting.

Finally, after about an hour, the power came back on, and we were able to finish the project. We were both relieved and proud of what we had accomplished. We had managed to overcome a difficult obstacle and still get our work done. It was a great reminder that with a bit of creativity and determination, anything is possible

Sample with idioms

Describe a time when you studied at a friend’s home.

Once, while I was in school, I went to study at a friend’s house. We had a big project due in a couple of days and we wanted to “work as a team” and “kill two birds with one stone” by studying together. My friend’s house was the “perfect place” to study because it was quiet and had a lot of space.

We set up our laptops on the dining room table and got to work. We took turns “bouncing ideas” off each other and “divvying up” the tasks. We also made sure to “take a break” to “stretch our legs” and grab snacks. We were making “good headway” and were “on track” to finish the project on time.

However, halfway through the afternoon, the power went out. We were in the middle of a big storm and the wind had “knocked out the lights.” We were a little bit worried about how we were going to “get our ducks in a row” without electricity, but we decided to “make the best of a bad situation.”

We lit some candles and continued working by the “dim light.” We were able to use our laptops for a little while longer thanks to the battery power. We were “laughing in the face of adversity” and joking about the situation. It was a fun, unexpected experience that made the project feel a bit more interesting.

Finally, after about an hour, the power came back on, and we were able to “tie up loose ends” and finish the project. We were both relieved and proud of what we had accomplished. We had managed to “overcome a hurdle” and still “get the job done.” It was a great reminder that with a bit of creativity and determination, “where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
