Describe one of your family events.
Last summer, I went to my cousin’s home. One day we watched TV together, seeing that they are having a picnic on the TV show. The weather was very good those days, so we decided to go out for picnic with my family. The next day, father drove us to the grassland in a countryside to have a picnic. We brought a lot of tools, including a pan, spoons, plates, vegetables and so on. The weather was so nice that day. We had clear division of work. Parents were in charge of making campfire and cooking food. My cousin prepared the materials for cooking. I laid the table and helped my cousin. We then had a very good dinner together in the open air. We had great fun there, singing songs and playing cards after dinner. This picnic is very important to me. I have learned how to cooperate with others in cooking. It strengthened our family love.
Describe an important skill learned from parents.
The skill I learned from parents is cooking. When I was young, my parents were very busy. They did not have a lot of time to take care of me. When I was 5 years old, mother taught me to cook. She just taught me some simple dishes, such as noodles and hamburger. When I was 12 years old, mother taught me to cook some dishes. She told me that cooking was an important skill. I could live independently if I managed to cook. I could make meat and pepper. Firstly, I add oil in the pan. When the oil gets hot, I put the meat to make it cooked. Then add the pepper, sauce and salt in the pan. After around 15 minutes, the dish is ready. I like cooking and I feel grateful for my mother. Cooking is a kind of art. I can make delicious and good-looking dishes now.
Describe a hard decision you made
The decision I want to talk about is to go to abroad. My cousin is reading book in Britain, several months ago. I received a letter from her. She told me about her campus life and some interesting experiences abroad. I felt interested and envious about her new school life in another country. At that time, I hoped I would go abroad. By the way, the landscape in Britain is so beautiful, I like traveling and I like beautiful sights. Even I see myself walking in the campus. However, this is not easy. I have to overcome a lot of difficulties. Firstly, mother is taking care of my daily life at home. I don’t think I can live independently far away. And I am sure to suffer homesick. Secondly, I have to learn language. Finally, it is difficult to abandon my social network and make friends in an unfamiliar environment. This decision took me several months to concern. At last, I still decide to go abroad. I like challenges. It’s not so hard in front of my enthusiasm to the new university.
