Model Answer 1:

Introduction:
I remember moving to a new home with my family when I was a child. It was the summer of 2014, and we moved from a small town to a big city, where my dad had got a new job. For this topic, I will share this experience with you.

When it was:
If I remember correctly, it was the year 2014. We moved to this new house at the beginning of summer.

Where you moved:
We moved to a newly-built apartment in the city centre, and I was excited to see our new home. This new house was far bigger than our previous home, and I really liked the fact that it was in a place where a lot was happening and I had a lot to see and do.

Why you moved:
My dad got a new job in this city and that is the reason we had to move. His office was just a 25-minute drive from our house.

And explain how you felt about it:
I felt both excited and anxious about the move but excitement was dominant I believe. On one hand, I was excited to explore the new city, meet new people, and experience new things. On the other hand, I was anxious about leaving behind my old friends and school, and starting all over again in a new place. The thought of making new friends and adjusting to a new school made me nervous. But I was also very happy because my father told me that he would allow me to have a dog once we move to a large house. I also liked the new house as soon as we moved there.


Model Answer 2:

Introduction:
Moving to a new school can be a daunting experience, especially when you have to leave your old friends behind and start afresh. I have experienced moving to a new school, and it was an experience that I will never forget. For this topic, I will share this experience with you.

When it was:
It happened when I was in the seventh grade. I was about 14 years old back then. My family moved to a new city, and I had to leave my old school and start in a new one.

Where you moved:
We moved to a new town called Bakersville in Linkshire. The new school was located in the suburbs of the city, and it was quite different from my old school, which was in the city centre.

Why you moved:
The reason for the move was that my dad got a new job in the suburbs, and it was closer to our new house.

And explain how you felt about it:
We were excited about the move, but at the same time, I was nervous about starting in a new school. At first, I felt a bit lost and overwhelmed. The new school was much larger than my old one, and it had many more students. It was a bit intimidating, but I tried my best to stay positive and open-minded. Eventually, I made some new friends, and I began to enjoy going to school again.
