Describe an occasion when you got up very early. You should say :

- When it happened

- Why you got up early

- Who you were with

- And explain how you felt about getting up early.

I’m a night owl who usually gets out of the bed quite late, ranging from 9 am to 10 am every morning. However, there were some occasions when I was forced to get up early, and I still remember the last time that I had to get up soon.

In September of last year, I was offered the first job in my life. At that time, I was a fresh graduate. Thus I had to move to X city to join training sessions at the Head Office of the company. My supervisor booked the flight ticket. Unfortunately, she had no choice but to book an early flight for me at 6 a.m. As I received the ticket information, I was quite anxious about whether I would miss the flight or not. I set off the alarm on my phone, asked my mother to wake me up in time. Finally, I made it, though I felt so sleepy. I fell asleep as soon as I was on the plane. It was such a nerve-racking experience as it was the first time I went on a plane, dealing with all kinds of stuff at the airport in the early morning on my own. Luckily, some kind people were willing to help me with my suitcase, which made that experience less harrowing to me.

As a youngster, I was on the habit of staying late at nights and getting up late, too. However, I feel I should change this custom to improve my health.

Describe your favourite part of the day. You should say:

- when it is

- what you do then

- how long this part of a day lasts

- and explain why this is your favourite part of the day.

This is an exciting topic for me to talk about. I want to share with you my favourite part of the day.

I am not an early riser because I often stay up late at nights, that’s why I can’t enjoy the morning much. In contrast, the evening is part of the day that I love the most.

To me, the evening starts at the time my working day ends, at 5 pm every day. After that, it’s my choice to do anything I want. There is no fixed things for my evenings. I keep an open mind and do what I want.

For example, in some evenings, I would ask my friends out for a meal, a movie or a coffee. We get time to share with others anything we want or to keep us updated about others. In some other evenings, when there are some interesting seminars, I would join and listen carefully to the speaker’s sharing. When I am moody or tired, I would prefer a private time in my room, turning on soft music, and reading books or just let my mind free. To some people, the way I enjoy my evenings is wasteful as they believe that I can do more useful things. However, to me, those kinds of evenings help me to refresh myself & recharge my energy, thereby making my life more enjoyable.

I firmly believe that we should take a certain amount of time off, doing nothing, do what we like and take a look back. It can help us to discover more things about life and ourselves. This kind of exploration is critical for us to know about ourselves; thus, it can set up an excellent way to develop our strength as well as minimize our weakness. It also boosts our performance in study or work. For this kind of activity, the evening is the best option.
