Describe something you received for free.
You should say:

[Instruction: You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]
I am not sure about the others, but I don’t really mind if someone offers me something for free, even if it means that something is the smallest of the thing. But, today, I am not going to talk about any small thing, but something significant or something valuable, which I received about 10 years ago for free.
Anyway, back then, I mean about 10 years ago, I was still a young boy and attending high school. But, as a high school student, I wasn’t exactly like the other boys who were growing up with me. In fact, I was more of a “loner” since I didn’t really have any friends to hang out with. Of course, I used to talk to my classmates or do things with them during school hours, but after school hours, I was more comfortable being alone. My parents and close relatives knew these things about me, and they all were perfectly okay with it except just one person. And that one person was my youngest aunt.
That aunt came to my place one day and asked me why I didn’t have any friends with who I could hang out. In response, all I could say was that I just didn’t like being around any kind of crowd, and I didn’t like having unnecessary talks with anybody. Then, suddenly, she asked me if I liked to hear music. I answered “yes” as I did like to listen to music when I was alone. She got really excited after learning that I loved music, but what I didn’t know was that she was going to give me a nice looking mini, cassette player for free!
And as soon as I received that cassette player from my loving aunt, I felt like my prayer to God was finally answered as someone really took the time to understand me and feel for my need. I also felt that I could always count on my loved ones, no matter how distant they look at times.
