Sample Answer

Here is the sample for “Describe a picture or photograph in your home” topic

Like many other families in my country, I have a big photograph of my family hung on a wall in my living room. It’s the first thing that you notice when you walk into the room.

This photo was taken a year ago on the occasion of my cousin’s wedding. It was the first time in ages that my whole family had gathered together. Even my relatives who live further away came home to attend the wedding. It was possibly the first picture of my extended family with my grandmother, all of my grandmother’s children and the in-laws, and I have lost count of how many grandchildren are in it. It’s a brilliant photo, with everyone smiling and laughing, taken by a professional photographer who put everyone at ease.
