When you’ve got through the theory, you probably have begun to understand how your essay should look like. But what should it contain? Hardly anybody can give the answer so far. Strange as it is, but usually the most difficult essay topics are those of informative essays. Such topics usually suggest that we tell about ourselves, our jobs or childhood, hobbies, dreams and those who have played a significant role in our lives. Do we remember our childhood? Some people do and others don’t. Do we know our own hobbies? Yes. However, when we are to write about something personal, we find ourselves lost.
The same thing happens when students are suggested to write about their family essay in english. They just can’t believe it can be interesting to anyone, except themselves. Do you share this point of view? Then, let’s try envisioning your family in a different light or from a new angle.
Do you have any siblings? If you do, then do you stand for each other? Or, maybe, you have always had and that has made you what you are? Would you like to spend a day with your siblings and what would you do? Do you have any common interests?
Did your parents have long and romantic relationships or they fell in love rapidly and have never separated since then? Could your Mum elope? Or, maybe, your grandparents were happy runaway lovers? Did you get enough attention and care while being a child? Do your parents still live together? Would you like to change anything in your relationships with them?
Do you remember your grandparents? What stories did your Grannies tell you? What did you do with your Grandpas? They could have taught you some skills you still use. Do you still see them often?
Who did you take after? Are there any traditions in your family? Any heirlooms?
