Describe something you borrowed from your friend or family.
You should say:
what you borrowed
when you borrowed it
whom you borrowed it from
I would like to thank you for the opportunity to let me talk about something I once borrowed. To be honest, I can recall many such events when I had to turn to a friend or family member for something I required. However, for this cue card topic, I will talk about an event when I had to borrow two thousand dollars from my father.
Just after finishing my college, I, along with two other friends, planned to start a small business. It would be 2015, I guess, and I was convinced to be a partner and that's why borrowed the money from my father. Besides my university, I got serious about our new venture and I had been able to return the money within a year that I took from my father as a loan. When I returned the money to my father, he seemed surprised and I explained to him how our interior design house is flourishing day by day. He told me that he was quite astonished that our little venture eventually saw the light of success.
I thanked him for the money and explained how we worked together to make it a success. I also showed my gratitude and mentioned that without his money, I could not have been a part of this business.
In numerous times, I borrowed books, laptops, music player, money, CDs and so on from my friends and relatives but the two thousand dollars I took from my father was something quite different and I am lucky that I decided to borrow it from my father for a good reason.
I once had to borrow a history textbook from one of my friends and I would like to talk about this event. I am an undergraduate student and I took the History of Ancient Civilizations course in my fourth semester. This is a popular course at our university, Can Tho University in Vietnam. I needed the book as I lost mine and needed to get some information to complete an assignment.
I borrowed the book “History and Its Past” from Hien Long. He is a good friend of mine and lived near my residence. He is a helpful person and lent me the book though he needed it for the same purpose. I was happy to have the book and Long also was delighted that he could have helped me in my needs.
I needed the book urgently to get some information to prepare an assignment that I was due to submit next week. Unluckily, I lost my book and I did not know how it was lost. If I failed to submit the assignment, it might be difficult for me to pass the course. It was an easy assignment and took only an hour for me to complete.
It was really necessary for me to have the book. And I could not buy it again. So, I sought help from Long as he lived nearby. I asked him to lend me the book and I promised to return it the next day. He was supportive enough and came to my home with the book and then I completed the assignment. I thanked him heartily.
