Model Answer 1:

Introduction:
I am going to talk about a crowded place that I have visited. The place was bustling with people, and it was a unique experience for me. I will describe this place in detail and share my thoughts and feelings about it.

Where it was:
The place I visited was a popular shopping mall in the downtown area of my city. The shopping mall was situated in the heart of the city and was easily accessible through public transport. It was one of the biggest malls in the city, with a vast range of shops and entertainment options.

When you went there:
I visited the mall on a weekend, and it was extremely crowded. There were people of all ages, families with children, groups of friends, and couples shopping or hanging out in the mall. The atmosphere was lively and exciting.

Why you went there:
I went to the mall to buy some new clothes and accessories for myself. I had heard about the various high-end brands and stores in the mall, so I decided to check them out. Additionally, I wanted to enjoy some leisure time with my friends, and the mall provided a perfect opportunity to do that.

And explain how you felt about being in this crowded place:
Being in a crowded place like a mall was a unique experience for me. On the one hand, I was fascinated by the lively atmosphere and the variety of people and activities around me. On the other hand, I felt a bit overwhelmed and uncomfortable in the crowd. It was challenging to navigate through the mall and find my way to the stores I wanted to visit. The long queues at the billing counters and the busy food courts were also a bit frustrating. However, overall, it was an enjoyable experience, and I would love to visit the mall again, but maybe on a less crowded day!



Model Answer 2:
I am one of those persons who hate to be in a crowded place. But it does not mean that I can completely avoid such cramped places especially when our country is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Before giving further details of my experience of being in a very crowded place, I would like to thank you for this topic and the opportunity to let me talk about it.

I had been to many places that were congested with people and where I could not freely move without bumping into other people. But perhaps none of them was as packed as the train station where I went with two of my friends a couple of months ago. The name of this train station was "Sing Long Train Station", and it is located on the east side of our capital city. Ironically, we picked this station to avoid the crowd!

I went there in mid-October this year, which was a couple of months ago from now. I was set to visit one of my friends' hometowns just after our semester final. But little did we know at that time that we would face such a large crowd!

As part of our tour to this friend's hometown, we booked our ticket online and went to the train station on a sunny Sunday morning. The roads were not much crowded, and we reached the train station well ahead of time. But as soon as we entered the train station with two of my friends, we noticed that something was not right and there was a sea of people! We could not fathom the gravity of it until we tried to move through this mass. It was quite impossible, and I felt like I was having a nightmare!

I am never a crowd-friendly person. However, there is a limit to the extent of the crowd that I can tolerate. But that day, it was insane. Most trains, on that day, missed their schedules due to an accident, and it created such a deadlock of people. It was at least five to seven times more crowded in an otherwise moderately crowded station! My initial thought was to leave the station and return to my home as soon as possible, but considering my commitment to my friend to visit his hometown, I could not do so. We had to be in this ocean of people for another two hours before trains started to take passengers and we could take our seats on our trains!

And that’s exactly how I succeeded in achieving a goal recently, which I otherwise thought was not possible. Now, calling “riding a car always” - no matter wherever I go and how short the distance is - is a “bad habit” that might actually offend some people, but it certainly felt like one to me. I found out that I was gaining extra pounds in my body, and my fitness was deterioratin

When I was browsing the CNN.com (in fact I visit the website at least twice a day), a news story titled - ‘How to lose a job in 30 seconds’ attracted me.
