Last week we looked at the first half of a question:
Describe a long walk that you enjoyed.
You should say
- when you went on this walk
- where it took place
I explained that it would be easy to give a very short answer to these two points:
"Last summer I walked along a beach during my holiday in..."
But we need to expand this answer to include more information about "when" and "where". For example:
I’m going to describe a walk that I enjoyed last summer while I was on holiday on the south coast of England. It was the first week of August, and we set off on the walk on the first morning of the holiday just after breakfast, at around 9 o’clock. The walk took us the whole morning and finished at lunchtime.
As I mentioned, the walk took place on the south coast of England. I was on holiday with my family in a place called Dorset, and we were staying in a rented house. Our aim was to walk from the house to a place called Durdle Door beach. First we had to find the coast path, and then we followed this path for several miles until we reached Durdle Door and finally descended the steep steps that led to the beach.
