Model Answer:

Introduction:
Spending quality leisure time with family is a cherished opportunity to create lasting memories and strengthen the bond between loved ones. Recently, I had the pleasure of engaging in a delightful leisure activity with my family that brought us immense joy and togetherness. For this topic, I am going to share this experience with you.

When it was:
Just last month, during a weekend, we decided to have a family picnic at a nearby park. It was a much-needed break from our busy schedules and provided us with an opportunity to unwind and reconnect with each other.

What type of leisure activity it was:
The leisure activity we enjoyed together was a picnic. We packed a delicious assortment of homemade sandwiches, snacks, and refreshing drinks, along with some outdoor games and a cosy picnic blanket. The park we chose had beautiful green spaces, shaded trees, and scenic views, providing an ideal setting for our picnic.

How frequently you do this with your family:
Although we cherish family time, due to our individual commitments and busy professional life, we are not able to engage in such leisure activities as frequently as we would like. However, we make a conscious effort to plan family outings, such as picnics, at least once every few months.

And explain how much you enjoyed it:
I cannot express enough how much I enjoyed our family picnic. It was a truly memorable experience filled with laughter, conversation, and shared experiences. We spent the entire day in the park, indulging in delicious food, playing games like Frisbee and badminton, and simply basking in the joy of being together.

What made this leisure activity so enjoyable was the collective participation and involvement of each family member. We laughed, shared stories, and bonded over shared memories. It felt like a much-needed escape from the routine, allowing us to unwind and appreciate the simple pleasures of life.
