Sample Answer:

I have a long desire to learn Chinese as a second foreign language, but even with my
passion, I still have not achieved it yet.
This passion grew in me just a few years ago when I watched a very inspiring movie about
Chinese history and culture. Then I decided that I had to learn Chinese in order to explore
more about this incredible nation. Besides, knowing more than one language is very
beneficial to not only my study but also my future career path.
Therefore, in order to achieve my target, I will register for a Chinese course for beginners,
which is held 3 times a week. I also intend to download many apps on my phone with the
aim to study at home by myself. I have drawn my own schedule so that I can make
time for self – study, at least 1 hour per day.
As currently, I have a full – time job, I am so busy that there are days when I have to work
overtime or travel far away to meet clients. Moreover, after a tiring day, I often feel dead
tired and find it hard to concentrate on studying at home. However, just thinking about
the moments when I can speak Chinese gives me a sense of satisfaction, which
encourages me to study harder and better. Thus, I always remind myself that I have to
keep up with my schedule at any cost if I want to make my dream come true
