Topic Visit Relatives
1. (Do you often visit your relatives?)
(Answer) Yes, I do.
(Give a reason for your answer) I like many of my relatives who are very compassionate, lovely and friendly to me and among them I would pick my younger uncle as the best relative in terms of our mutual understanding, closeness and communications.
2. (What do you do when visiting relatives?)
(Answer) There are a lot of activities.
(Give a reason for your answer) We often discuss our family issues, our thoughts on politics, religion, books writers, movies, music and on many other issues. In our big family, we share our books and recommend books to each other. Generally, adults also share heartfelt words to youngsters and advise them on how to behave decently.
3. (When was the last time you visited a relative?)
(Answer) Well, it was just last week when I visited my uncle’s family and my grandparents, who reside with him in the countryside. We went for a short walk near the field after breakfast to relax in nature and soak up some much-needed Vitamin D, which is necessary for elderly people.
4. (Why do people visit relatives?)
(Answer) For many reasons, I believe.
(Give a reason for your answer) Simply hanging out with family that you don’t see all the time is great. You get a chance to catch up with everyone and figure out what they’re doing with their lives. You also get to laugh and just be weird because they don’t judge you for your weirdness. Above all, the memories are the best when you’re with your family sitting around and reminiscing about things that you’ve done together.
