Answers & Tips

  1. What is your favorite fruits?

Answer: I like eating different kinds of fruits such as grapes, watermelon and oranges but I like avocado the most. The first reason I like avocado is because I can make a tasty milkshake out of it as part of my dessert. And another reason I would like to mention is that, we can gain a lot of nutrients from the avocado fruit such as protein and vitamins. Therefore, avocado stands out among all fruits in the world.

 

Answer Overview:

We started with long response, as you can see it is clear that the introduction subjects to the topic about fruits which follows the main answer – avocado. Next to that are the two following reasons with corresponding linking phrases (The first reason I like avocado is because, And another reason I would like to mention is that,) which made the sentence more communicative. Examples are also necessary to support your main ideas. Finally, we included a paraphrased summary to close the sentence appropriately.
