You can make some notes to help you if you wish.] Model Answer: Thank God that this cue card didn’t ask me to talk about someone in my family who I like more than the others because then that would be a disaster! After all, I like to give them the impression that I like them all equally, even though, in reality, that is not quite always possible. But, anyway, thank you for this interesting, and yet quite challenging, topic. The person in my family, I'd like and want to talk about, is none other than my youngest uncle. But, even though, he is an uncle to me, to whom I should show due “respect” as per th

So, I will go ahead and talk about just one as this topic suggests. Anyway, the friend, I want to talk about, is known to us as “Rabbi” (this is his nickname). I met this good friend of mine at a local coffee shop about 5 years ago. It was a rather busy coffee shop, so it was only natural for me to think that I would have to wait for some time before I could actually get my cup of fresh coffee. But th

I have known this fellow worker of mine for more than a few years who joined our steel sheet manufacturing company as a junior quality assurance manager. From the way he was conducting his job affairs and taking care of the things, which he was responsible for,

But, Fernandez, my close university friend, is an exception, and today I would like to talk about him here.

Mr Albert is a businessman but he seems equally interested and engaged in philanthropic works.
