Sample Answer for IELTS Speaking Part 2 Topic: Describe a family that you like, but it’s not your own
(Where does this family live?) We come across a few people whom we consider an extended part of our families. Because of immense and unconditional love, they come closer to our hearts. One such family is Mr. John’s, who are our next-door neighbours. (Who are the family members?) There are four members in the family, Mr. John, his wife Mrs. Rose, their daughter Emma, and their dog, Phoebe. They moved into the house about 2 years back and invited everyone to the housewarming party, through which we came to know about Mr. John’s family. (What does each person in the family do?) Mr. John was HR manager in an MNC, Mrs. Rose was a teacher, and Emma was of the same age as me, and we both studied in the same school, and their dog Phoebe stayed in the house playing with other dogs. As the days passed, we became best friends, and we often spent our time together by taking Phoebe to the park, shopping, going to movies, and so many other things. (And Explain how you feel about it?) I am very comfortable with Emma’s family, as they are generous, amicable, and don’t differentiate between Emma and me when I am in their house. Emma has a very dynamic relationship with her parents. Even if she does something wrong, they tell her why it is wrong and motivate her to make right decisions. Despite being very influential, they don’t show off, which is an exceptional quality I admire. I am very fortunate to know Emma and her family.
