Sample Answer of Describe a Story Someone Told You and You Remember
Well, I heard so many stories in my childhood, and I enjoyed listening to stories from my grandmother. Here I would like to talk about my favourite childhood story of a farmer who teaches his sons the lesson of Unity. One day I fought with my brother, and at that time, my grandmother told us this story. There was a farmer who had four sons and always quarrelled with each other. The farmer was worried about it. So to give them the lesson he brought some sticks and gave to everyone and asked them to break them. All sons did it in no time. After that, the farmer gave every son a bunch of sticks and told them to break them. Now this time, no one could do. Then the farmer said, dear sons, if you will remain together, no one can harm you; otherwise, you will be like these broken sticks. Listening to this story, we realized our mistake, just like the sons of a farmer and felt sorry, and we promised our grandmother that we would never fight again. I admitted listening to his sorry brought a huge change in our behaviour and developed our relationship better. I still remember this story and the moral it gave to us because I can relate it to myself at that time. Overall this is my favourite story that I heard and still remember.

Question 3:- Do you think that generally, most people are good at storytelling?
Answer:- It’s a very tricky question as it is difficult to generalize whether people are good at storytelling or not.

So I think yes, people are good at storytelling.
