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 for its swimmers. It is a great opportunity indeed to share the experience.

This is an outdoor and public pool and provides 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.

Being a public swimming pool, it is always crowded. If you want to use the pool perfectly, you will need to move in some specific time of the day. Early morning is the best time to move into the swimming pool. Earlier, I used to go in the evening and experienced some unusual situations. I have found a large group of people in the pool and they are passionate about swimming. The accommodation was really difficult despite the pool being a spacious one. After that, I go swimming early in the morning. It is convenient for me. I swim for around one hour. But when I have to attend my class at the university, I swim in the late evening hours – though it is difficult for me to occupy a swimming space at the pool at that time.

Usually, I go alone for swimming. But sometimes my younger accompanies me. He is also a great swimmer and swims well than me. I, in fact, has taken swimming as a way to keep myself fit. I have to remain busy round the day with my academic studies and projects. So, I cannot manage time for other physical activities. We all know that health is wealth. It is wise to do some physical movements for a better health. Besides, physical exercises also help to keep the mind fresh. Hence, I decided to swim. Sometimes, during the evening hours, I ask some of my friends to accompany me to the pool. They also come with me but cannot continue swimming for long as they have not practised like me. I took my dad one morning to swim, and he was happy after the event. But he also is unable to manage time for his occupational engagements. As a result, I move for swimming by my own and I welcome if someone accompanies me.

This is a favourite location for me for some reasons. First of all, this is a very spacious swimming pool. I also do not need to pay any charges for using the pool which is another advantage for me (certainly I would have paid if they asked for). Besides, this is the nearest swimming pool from my residence. Hence, I do not need to use my car to reach the location. Parking is a bit troublesome here, and I am not to bother for that. Another advantage of this location is that I can be here at any time of the day. Based on all such reasons, I prefer this location too much though there are many other options left for me.

Model Answer 1: People around the world wear different sorts of dresses and due to geographical location and seasonal changes, the attires vary. I always prefer wearing jeans clothes, especially jeans pant and shirt.

Jeans are common clothing items and are available around the world and mostly popular among the youths who are of my age. I wear jeans pant and shirt always even when I attend in any formal occasion. The most important benefit of wearing jeans clothing is that they do not become dirty as easily as the other types of clothes do. Moreover, you can have the pant and shirt of all size and shape and are sold at a reasonable…
