Sample Answer of Talk About a Time You Made a Promise to Someone
I remember when my son was ten months old, I was so eager to see him make an attempt to walk by his first birthday. This desire prompted me to make a promise to him. The promise was that, if he’s able to walk on or by his first birthday, I would get him a toy mobile phone. I noticed that he’s always fascinated when he sees mobile phones or when he hears his favourite rhymes on the phone. I made the promise to him because I wanted to motivate him to walk. I wanted him to earn the gift I would present to him. The promise was quite easy to achieve because I had already bought the toy, so I always used it to tease him, which made him eager in trying to chase me around for it.
