Did you notice the following sentence in Wednesday's essay? This is a nice way to introduce a personal example in the writing or speaking test.
Having worked with children myself, I have learnt that clear expectations and boundaries are necessary.
Try creating your own personal examples with "having + past participle". You can also add the word "never" to make a negative. For example:
- Having lived abroad myself, I understand how important it is to learn about local customs.
- Having never tracked my fitness goals before, I found the new app really useful.
