- Who he/she is;
- How you knew him/her;
- Why he/she impressed you most
- And explain how you feel about him/her
Well, when I was in primary school, art class was always my favorite. So the art teacher, Mrs. Li, really left a mark/impression on me.
In my eyes she was like a superhero. She could(
can past） do anything! I still remember clear as day that she taught[tɔːt] us to make paper cuttings. I have to say she’s pretty skilled in paper-cutting. I remember that during one class, she took just a few minutes to cut two butterflies. It seemed like she had magic hands. But I couldn’t keep up with her at all.
My fingers were
clumsy [ˈklʌmzi] and I could never cut the papers well. But Mrs. Li didn’t look down on me. She personally came to my side and helped me fold[fəʊld] a piece of paper in half several times. Then she asked me to draw an image on it and cut it along the lines. When I unfolded the paper, it really looked like a butterfly. I remember I was over the moon and thanked her a lot.
over the moon: 我记得我欣喜若狂
Actually I learned many art skills from Mrs. Li. She was patient and kind to every student and was always smiling, so I was very fond[fɒnd] of her. After so many years, my memory of primary school is fading [ˈfeɪdɪŋ] , but I still remember tons of moments from art class and with Mrs. Li clearly. I really miss those days in primary school. It was the happiest and most carefree period of my life.
Describe A Long Walk You Ever Had.
- When 2. Where 3. Who With 4. How You Felt
I’d like to talk about the one particular walk I had with my best friend a year ago. It had been a very tough day for me, working on weekends and to top it, the work was a bit bizarre [bɪˈzɑː(r)] . I was about to crash when Molly called me up for a walk.
I remember running from my work desk and out to the office gate as if I had found my freedom. We initially thought of going for a 15-minute walk, but I came back after around one hour.
We were ambling talking about the unnecessary things, discussing each other and having a beautiful time. It was late in the evening and the winds were blowing beautifully.
We had burger first then tea followed by corn and then ice cream. There was not much distance that we covered, we were around 500 meters from the office area, but we took many rounds of the same place, and it was amazing.
4.4 How You Felt
We chatted about his dreams and mine and then about the things going right and wrong in our lives. Then, we discussed our families, broken hearts and almost everything.
It was a lovely walk, after a terrible day at work, when you are stuck[stʌk] to a computer screen for more than 10 hours, nothing can be better than having a walk with your best friend.

I planned to bake a special cake for my mother So that I worked on it. Firstly, I helped my mother with cleaning and dusting. While doing cleaning accidentally “Microwave oven” fell down and the main plate of the oven which is made of glass broken.
I felt very sad at that moment because without glass plate it is not possible to do baking in the oven. On that time, my all planning which I made for my mother’s happiness also suffered. My heart was beating fast, and I do not understand what to do now. Then I tried another oven’s glass plate, but it makes my day bad to worse.

I learned a lesson electronically thing needs extra care and safety also.

Being a big-time food fanatic, I love tasting mouth-watering delicacies. As far as desserts are concerned, I am into cake.
Although I have tasted cake many times, the one I had a deep memory during my last birthday was special, and I enjoyed that the most.
1.2. Where it happened
During my last birthday, the world was going through the second wave of the covid-19. Due to that, my city was in a state of lockdown. There is no doubt that a birthday party is incomplete without cake. So on my birthday, my friends baked a cake for me at our home. As going out was not an option for us. So, my mother made the cake by using the ingredients [ɪnˈgriːdiənts] available at home.
1.3. Who you got the cake from
First, she baked the bread, and for that, she used whole wheat flour. For the icing on the cake, she made whipped cream from milk. And she further garnished the cake with Choco chips and fruits. I liked the cake because my friends baked it out of love and affection for me. Despite being newbies at cooking, they did tremendous hard work, and after watching umpteen videos on YouTube, they baked a mouth-watering cake for me.
