Describe a time you had good experience in the countryside
You should say:
Where you went
What you did
When you did it
Who you went with
And explain why it was enjoyable?
Well, this topic actually reminds me of last week when I went to visit my grandparents in the countryside. You know, my parents and I would go visit my grandparents every weekend possible, it’s kind of our tradition. That’s when I meet up with my family and see my cousins because we live in different cities. As I’m much older than my other cousins, sometimes it’s quite awkward to spend time with them. We don’t have much to talk about. Last week, everyone was going out, but my 5-year-old cousin and I didn’t wanna tag along, so my aunt asked me to babysit him. At first it was weird because I’ve never babysat anyone, plus, I’m not really good with kids. However, my cousin started talking to me about what happens in his kindergarden and how he likes this girl in his class. He was like, “I like her a lot, but she prefer toplay with some other boy in my class, what do I do?”. To be honest, I didn’t think a 5-year-old would even think about this kinda stuff. He was totally talking to me like a grown-up and actually asking for my advice. Then we went out for a walk. You can’t imagine how spectacular the view is in my grandparents’ village during spring time! There was a large field ofblooming flowers, gently swayed back and forth as the wind breezed, all of which really brightened up myday! My little cousin wouldn’t stop singing as we were walking along the field.This experience completely changed my view of children. I used to think they are all noisy and loud, but after spending time with my cousin, I realised not every child is like that and I really enjoyed this experience as I got to know about my cousin more. That’s all, thank you.
