Band 9.0 Sample.
Today, I am going to share with you a family member who I spend most of my time with. That is my /father/mother/older sister/brother/cousin…
My father/mother/older sister / brother /cousin… is a very considerate and thoughtful person.
When I was small, he/she usually took good care of me; taught me good lessons and never let me out of his/her sight.
Even now, whenever I have a bad day, he/she has always been there for me, and helps me get through it.
As I have got older, my father/mother/older sister/brother/cousin… has become my best friend.
I can share my interests, my career plans or even things about my love life with them – in fact, anything at all.
Especially when I am down, he/she gives me the encouragement that I need to move on. To me, he/she is a role model whom I always look up to/admire/and follow in his/her footsteps.
He/she constantly reminds me that I have to try my best in everything I choose to pursue so that I can achieve my goal in this life.
Thanks to his/her advice, I have made significant progress in my personal life in general.
Although, of course, I love all my family, because he/she is so special to me, I think that we will always keep in touch, just as we do now almost every day.
