Model Answer 1:
Childhood is the best part of life. Everyone wants to get back in the early days of life for many reasons, and I also own the similar opinion with the statement. I can remember, when I was a kid of 10 or 11 years old, I used to play regularly with my school mates after the school hours. We played a wide number of outdoor sports. I am glad to recall the days.

I used to take part in some outdoor sporting activities after the school. Most of the times, I used to play cricket in the local school playground. The number of players was more than the spectators. So, it was a bit troublesome for me to handle everything as I was the captain of the class. I also used to take part in some other usual activities of children in Pakistan. Therefore, I had a very enjoyable childhood in that time.

Model Answer 1:
Swimming is really a very good exercise and essential for keeping a good health. So, I regularly swim at the local swimming club here in France. The club comes up with some special facilities to its swimmers. It is a great opportunity indeed to share the experience.

This is an outdoor and public pool and provides with the required facilities for the local swimmers. But to practice swimming at this pool, one needs to follow some strict rules and regulations. The pool ‘Piscine Municipale’ is located at the Avenue Jules Grec in Antibes in France. This is a spacious swimming pool. It is a few minutes’ walk from my place. So, I usually visit this pool at different times of the day. A notable number of people use the swimming pool regularly, and this remains crowded round the day. The changing rooms and showers also appear admiring to me.
