    Default A confusing topic

    I'm sorry if this is off topic. But I couldn't make out what the teacher meant when giving me a such a task. So please help!
    Here goes the question for my next presentation: " How is your family origin? Define through your parents"
    Does it mean I gotta present about my hometown, my grandparents ..etc after asking my Dad and mom?
    Sorry if i'm being too dull

    Oooh this is tricky. It almost sounds like they are asking about your ethnic origin but somehow I doubt that. Maybe they are asking about your descendents and what they did or where they lived? I'm really not sure.

    "How is your family origin" makes no sense - "What is your family's origins" would make sense; "How did your family originate" would also make sense. I would go back and ask for clarification of the question.


    I think what Bounty Hunter means is your ancestors.
