The object of the exercise is to think of something
that you would like an ideal version of, and to
describe this ideal object in detail.
Here are some examples of topics that you could
create an ideal of.
My ideal: bedroom, house, car, friend, holiday, youth
club, school, sports star, night out …
Choose the thing you want to create an ideal of and
then brainstorm the idea by writing down a list of
twenty to thirty things you could say about this ideal
Whatever topic you choose, you must write three clear
sections about it – each section should be 150 – 200
words long. Before you start writing you must decide
what these sections are going to be. Then you must think
of at least five things to focus on in each section. For
instance: My Ideal Bedroom
     Section One      Section Two       Section Three
    Colour scheme /    Decoration        Technology
                      Posters – who?       Television
