Sample Answer 1
I’d like to talk about “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”, which is a book I finished reading recently.

This book is part of a popular fantasy series for children, but in fact I decided to start reading it to study English. I’m already familiar with the story from the films, which makes it easier for me to focus on the language while I read. I’m not usually interested in fantasy books, but the characters and the story are interesting and fun to read about.

As for how I got this book, I got this book from the local library after I finished reading the last book in the series a few weeks ago.

The book is fairly long, so it took me a little less than a month to finish reading it. A few weeks is longer than it usually takes me to read books in my own language, but I think it’s a little more difficult for me to read books in English.

In the future, I plan to read every book in the “Harry Potter” series, because I’d like to know what happens next. I’ve noticed that my English vocabulary has already improved somewhat, so I feel motivated to keep on reading.

“Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” is a great book to practice English, and has an entertaining story too. I’ll start reading the next book in the series as soon as I can.
