Sample writing
There are four people in my family: my parents, my older brother and I. We are all very busy
people, so we divide/ split the household chores equally. My Mom does cooks, cleans the
room and shops for grocery. My Dad does the hard stuff like lifting heavy things
and repairs work like fixing plumbing and electricity. My older brother takes out the rubbish,
cleans the house and feeds the dogs. And me, I do the washing-up, do the laundry and water
the flowers. In my family, every member contributes to making the home a beautiful and
happy place to live in.
