TOEFL Essay - The best room

The most important room in the house is where we eat, our dining room. Here, we thrive on great food and a strong feeling of togetherness.

The dining room is the most important room in the house particularly because we eat there. Satisfaction and nourishment are essential to good familial hygiene, and it's in this room where we receive good infusions of both. After all, no other room in the house is so closely associated with our five senses as the dining room is. Consequently, without one no house is complete. For example, most of my fondest childhood memories involve our dining room and my mother's wonderful cooking. Here, in this room, the meals were showcased and heartily enjoyed.

In addition to satisfying our stomachs, the dining room is a place where we fulfill our social needs: U-N-I-T-Y. Talking with our family face to face isn't happening during the day when we work, so it's refreshing to be able to use the dining room as a centerpiece for coming together. At no place in the house does conversation flow the way it does in the dining room while we slowly devour the loving meal. The room itself is a social catalyst, and this fact propels it to the #1 slot in the room category of houses. An illustration of the social bonding that takes place in the dining room is the lengthy conversation topics we discuss as a family, and how my family in particular has had numerous arrays of social justice issues discussed. Granted, we never solve the issues, but these discussions establish ideologies for future arguments.
