Model Answer 1:
I love to play with children and most of the cases they also become fond of me. My neighbour, Mr Samuel Richard, has a baby boy and I love to play with him.

Samuel Junior is the child whom I adore most. The baby also loves me too much and when we are together, it becomes difficult to split us. I like to play with the child and when he laughs at me, it becomes the most enjoyable scene. Usually, the child sits on my lap and plays with me. Sometimes both of us make fun with water. I have a common swimming pool before my apartment complex and I take a bath with this kid, in fact, the baby waits for every day to bath in the pool with me. We make lots of fun together. Moreover, when it is about watching television, the kids and I watch together and mostly we watch the episodes from the Tom & Jerry cartoon series. Besides, when I am at home, the child moves with me like my shadow.

The child lives with its parents just opposite to my apartment. I live in an apartment complex in Singapore city with my parents. My father bought the apartment around five years ago and my neighbour has bought his apartment in 2013. Since then, I am familiar with the child. Besides, both of the families share a great internal relation. Interestingly, in most of the times of the day, Samuel Junior- the child lives in our apartment. I think he finds it interesting to be with me always as I am a fun-loving boy. The intimacy between me and the boy is exceptional. When I return home from college, I knock at its apartment to bring it to my home and sometimes it comes in search of me and waits for me until my return. Sometimes I see that the child is sleeping in my bed and realise that the little fellow has fallen asleep after waiting for hours for my return. Then I wake him up and start making the fun.

Samuel Junior is only five years old but he appears to be more intelligent that age. He owns a sharp sense of right and wrong but sometimes forgets those which appear more interesting to me. Sometimes the baby comes to me to learn and I teach him the alphabets, rhymes etc. Samuel is more attentive in studies than the other kids of his age. He is able to remember several rhymes together and likes to recite before everyone he meets. But few of his activities are a bit irritating to me like he does not want to get out of the swimming pool. Though he got cold several times for longer stay in the pool, he likes to be there. Finally, his parents have to take him out of the pool forcibly. I think the problem will be okay when he will grow up.

When the child sees me, it becomes filled with joy. I am the only outsider who loves him unconditionally. I allow him to do all the menaces he wants and covers them up when he is in real trouble. I am like a friend to him and both of us plan to perform unusual things. When he meets me in the morning, usually he wakes me up by pulling my hairs. Sometimes he throws water on me with the water gun that I bought him. He loves to play video games on a computer and I need to be with him there. When he dies or fails to do something on the video game, I am to make the things correct. I have never seen his dull face after meeting me. It appears that he is highly delighted with my company.



Sample Answer 2:
Mr Robertson is one of my neighbours who has a daughter of three years old. She is very fond of me for some reasons. And this is the only child that I admire most in the entire apartment block here in Austria. Thank you for the cue card topic and I am happy to have it in my share. Here are the details about the child.

She is Julee by name and loves to play round the day. She is the centre of attraction for me when I am at home. In fact, Julee is the child that has become very intimate to me and I know her since her birth. But the relationship with this little child grew more intensive when I started to talk with her on different occasions.

As I said before, I know the child since after her birth. Actually, I was one of the members who took her mother to the hospital during the birth of this child. So, I had a different attraction to this girl. But I was unable to spend time with this little girl as she was too small even to take in lap. Gradually she grew up, and I started to spend time with this child. Gradually, I started spending more time with this child and now we are very good friends. She comes to make some fun time with me when I am at home. Sometimes, I bring chocolate and other foodstuff and toys for this child.

Julee is only three years old. She looks very nice and cute. She got a few teeth and tries to have a bite of food. Sometimes, I ask her to have a bite on my cheek and she places the bite that makes me feel thrilled. Though she is only two, she is matured than the other kids of her age. She loves to listen to stories and understands all the requests. She knows how to respond to situations and also helps in small types of activities. Moreover, she also loves to watch television commercials and cartoons. She remains silent all the moments of cartoons though she is unable to understand what she sees and listens on the television.

This becomes really interesting when the child sees me. It becomes very happy and jumps on my lap. Sometimes, the baby holds my finger and asks me to take her for a walk. So, I take her to the nearby streets for a short walk. This time, I buy some small items like biscuits, cookies, or chips and chocolates for this little baby. Moreover, it eagerly waits for me to return home. Often she visits my apartment and my family members realise that Julee is there in search of me. In fact, it is really interesting to get into a company of such an adorable baby.

Idea Generation for This Cue Card topic: 

1.  Jessica is a little angel and she lives in the opposite door of mine here in Canberra. Meeting with this little angel was an interesting event. In fact, I was invited to her birthday as a neighbour last year and since then we two have very good bondage. She is only three and a half years now. Whenever she meets me, she smiles and it makes her look outstanding indeed. She loves to jump on my lap. Moreover, often I bring some chocolates for her that she adores as well.

2.  Johan is the little kid of my elder sister. I know this baby since after its birth. In fact, I had an active role when my elder sister was admitted to the hospital with labour pain. So, I have different bondage with this baby. He is now two years old. He loves to play with me. Whenever I visit their home, the baby comes to meet me with a large smile on the face and starts playing with me. He tries to play a wide number of games that he learns by himself.

3.  Angelina is a little baby who is my brother-in-law’s baby. She is a really cute baby with curly hair. In fact, I am in love with the curly hair of her. I was introduced to her on a formal occasion while I was invited to their home for the first time. She is only three and a half years old but she has a smart intuitive power. She loves to socialize and takes care of the people around her in her best possible manner. And now, when she meets me, she greets me in her own ways that she has learnt from a television show.

4.  George is my nephew and he is five years old. I know him from an early age and I have a very good relationship with him. Though he is only five, he has a smart intelligence and intuition. He loves to take part in outdoor sports and unluckily, he was injured several times while playing in the playground of his school. When I meet him, he tries to convince me in the outdoor sports but as I do not prefer them, he finally induces me in playing chess.

5.  Rabaka is my niece and she lives with her parents in Iran. Meeting with this four-year-old young lady is fun. I did not meet her after her births as I was abroad and my meeting with her was interesting. I met her ordinarily and she was glad to see me. In fact, she had heard about me and the same do I but never met in person. Since then, whenever we meet, we make fun and she really becomes glad. It is a blessing for me to have a niece like her.
