BAND 9 MODEL ANSWER FOR IELTS SPEAKING PART 2
I would like to talk about a family that I am very close to (knowing someone very well and liking them a lot), 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 (visit) 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 (spend a lot of time in a place) together, especially at the weekends just to take it easy (relax) and enjoy ourselves so as to get ready for a new week.
Their parents, I mean my uncle and aunt, are very warm-hearted (kind & loving), and they both work as college teachers. So, whenever I run into (to experience something unexpectedly) difficulties with my homework, I usually turn to (to ask a person for help or support) them for help. I remember when I was small, I used to live in my uncle’s house and they looked after (take care of) me as if I had been their daughter. Hence, our relationships are out-of-this-
world (extremely good), although we don’t have much time together like before. But on special occasions such as New Year Eve, we will gather at my grandparents’ house to 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 good (forever).
