Model Answer 1:
I have a younger sister and I love to spend time with her. She is also fond of me and loves to be with me always.

I am 20 and Georgina, my younger sister, is a teen now and I prefer to spend most of my time with her when I am at home. She is in her secondary grades and loves drawing images of nature, and landscapes. Sometimes, I instruct her on drawing images, solving her math problems, complete her homework and many more. She prefers to be with me as I do not behave impolite with her and try to make everything simple to her. She believes that I am the smartest brother in the world as I solve almost all of her problems. On the other side, I also miss her when I am out home for my academic activities in college. She waits eagerly for me round the day and when I get back at home, she jumps on me. She never leaves me alone at home and I also prefer to be with her always.

She is an amicable person and owns a very smart and intelligent brain. She is tall with her dark brown eyes. She is highly kind in nature and loves to make friends in her real life. But she has one negative aspect. She is a bit hot tempered as well. Nobody knows when she will be angry and mostly she turns angry with the petty issues. Once I made late to pick her from her school and she did not talk with me for the remaining part of the day. At first, it was difficult for me and later I discovered my mistake and apologised to her, bought some chocolates to resume the relation. But she is generous in nature and loves to share everything with people. Often she shares her foods with her friends and classmates in the school which I am proud of indeed.

Both of us love to watch movies. Whenever we have enough time, we start watching movies and she prefers to watch the action movies of Hollywood and I also prefer such movies. Besides, I like to read and I read out loud the stories that I prefer most. She appears to be a bored with my attempt of reading as my pronunciation of English is not in the right tone (after her opinion). In that case, I ask her to complete the story and she dumps my proposal. Sometimes both of us go for fishing at the adjacent lake. My fishing luck is not as good as her- she gets fishes often and I do not. Moreover, we also participate in chess. She is a great chess player and it becomes tougher for me to beat her. Before going to school every day, she comes to me for remembering all the activities to be done in the evening together.

In my family, I am the elder son of my parents while she is the second and smallest. The age difference is not so much between us. I like to spend most of the times with her for many reasons. The first thing is that she is like my best friend. I share all of my events with her as like she does with me. I like to share my foods, my attires, my money … everything. On the other side, she also feels for me. She misses me always and as her brother, I am like her world. My parents always adore the cordial relationship between us and I think they are happy too. My dad is a businessman and passes most of the time out of home and mom being a homemaker remains busy with the domestic chores always. So, we two do not have anyone to accompany us and thus I like to spend most of the times of the day with my younger sister.

Model Answer 2:
My grandma is a charming lady even in her 70. She is the woman I am fond of and spend most of the time at my home with her. This is a great question for and I am delighted to have the chance of telling about my grandma. Thank you so much for the question.

My grandma was a school teacher in her early days and now passing her retirement with my family. She lost my grandpa a couple of years ago. So, now most of the time she is alone and I accompany her. She loves to tell stories and share her real-life experiences. I love to listen to the events of her youths. And I also share my emotions and daily events with her.

Being an extrovert, she loves to socialise with people. As a result, she is quite familiar in our locality and respected by everyone. Many of her students are now well established and some of them often come to visit her and take necessary advice over various issues. My grandma never rejects any request from them when she is asked to advise. Moreover, I also love to take suggestions from her about multifarious issues related with me. She is a perfect woman I have ever seen. She also loves to smile always and never becomes rude with anyone. Consequently, often it becomes tough for me to be with her when she moves to visit her neighbours.

When she is at home, in the evening, and I return from my college, we sit together to discuss the issues happened with us. She describes what she did and whom she met. Sometimes, we watch television serials or cricket matches too if we have nothing else to do. But most of the time, we are engaged into conversations about many issues. The conversations are interesting. When I ask her something, she replies in a passive tone that she is not aware of the issue. But once she starts talking about the fact, it is actually hard to stop her.

I spend more time with my grandma for some reasons. She is a wise lady and has travelled in different countries for her teaching purposes. So, she is enriched with experiences and knowledge. She also loves to teach even in this mature age. Besides, she is extremely skilled in mathematics and whenever I am in trouble with the math, she comes to my help me. As a direct result, I have the highest score in the class in this subject. But I am in love with this charming old lady for her affection. I am the only daughter of the family and she loves me most. Therefore, I spend much time with this adoring lady.

1. I love to spend most of the time with my dad. He is an adorable person and has a nice personality. He was a policeman and now has retired from the job here in Japan. We have lots of fun together. He is my mentor and a great guide to my life. I am fond of him because he loves me so much and as the only daughter, he never displeases me. He does all the best he can. And the most important thing is, I can know about the life from his experience. He loves sharing those with me.

2. My elder brother is my mentor and I spend most of the time with him when we are at home. He is a nice guy and loves to socialize with other people. But he also has some negative experiences while socializing with others. When Jim (my brother) and I are together, we spend time in planning for a wide number of things. Moreover, we love to play chess together though I could not beat him anytime in the past six months during the matches. He is two years senior to me and loves me very much. So, I spend time with him.

3. No one or nothing is more special in the world than a mom. So, I love to spend most of my time with my mom. She is a kind-hearted woman of 40. She loves to take care of the family members and loves to cook special meals almost in every weekend. Thereby, whenever I am with her, she asks me to help her in the cooking process. She wants me to read out the recipes from books when she experiments with a new cuisine. Sometimes, both of us enjoy some YouTube videos on cooking and travelling. We have many similarities and so, I love to spend time with her.

4. My grandpa is a great storyteller and I love him most for his special stories. In fact, I spend most of my time with him for several reasons. He is a very gentle person and loves his grandchildren. Usually, we spend time in talking about diversified issues. Sometimes, we watch movies together or walk together in the evening. I enjoy every single second that I spend with him. All of his stories are about human life and nature. He was a great traveller in his early age and shares his experiences with me. I like the stories much.

5. I love my elder sister Juliana most for her cordial attitude. She is a lovely lady and pursuing her post-graduation from a local university in London. When we stay at home together, we perform different weird things. We plan for unusual gifts to present at wedding or birthday event. We also do paintings together and in truth, they are our joint venture. I love to spend time with her as she loves me a lot and is the only person in the family who allows doing the unusual things.

Model Answer: Thank you very much for the time you have given me to talk about something I have purchased but hardly used. I will tell you about the mobile phone that I bought six months ago which I have barely touched so far.

The mobile phone that I purchased was from the Samsung brand and I purchased it from a 'Samsung Smartphone Cafe'. The store is located a few blocks away from my home and I purchased a Samsung smartphone (model Samsung Galaxy A 30) which cost me nearly $340.

I already have a smartphone that comes with better features and configuration than the one I recently purcha…
