BAND 9.0 SAMPLE ANSWER:
I would like to talk about a family that I am very close to, it‟s my uncle’s family. His family has 2 daughters who are around the same age as me; therefore, I usually drop in to his house to chat with them. At times, we bake some cakes and take them to our grandparents‟ house; then we have an overnight sleep there. Besides, we often hang out together, especially at the weekends just to take it easy and enjoy ourselves so as to get ready for a new week.
Their parents, I mean my uncle and aunt, are very warm-hearted, and they both work as college teachers. So, whenever I run into difficulties with my homework, I usually turn to them for help. I remember when I was small, I used to live in my uncle’s house and they looked after me as if I had been their daughter. Hence, our relationships are out-of-this-world, although we don‟t have much time together like before. But on special occasions such as the Tet holiday, we will gather at my grandparents‟ house to make Chung cake, enjoy a firework performance as well as wish New year‟s greetings to each other. As a final point, I hope that we can maintain this close relationship for ever.
