Sample Answer of Talk About Something Important that Has Been Kept in Your Family for A Long Time
I am going to talk about something that has been kept in my family for a long time. It was our family television which my dad always referred to as “my twin” because he said it was bought the same day I was born on the 10th of April 1986. The television was old fashion, but everyone loved it such that no one wanted it to be disposed of. As said by my dad, he bought it because of the joy he had soon after my death. My dad said it was important because it reminds him of the circumstances that happened during my birth so that automatically made everyone value it. It was being treated like my other part, and I also developed some attachment to it. It was indeed an important thing for my whole family.
