Model Answer

Introduction and When did it happen? and Who was with you?

I am going to talk about an incident that happened to me, which I never forget. It occurred in 2015 about five years ago. In summer vacations my uncle planned a trip for children because we got bored at home. We decided to go to Jaipur.

We all (me, my brother, uncle and two cousins) were thrilled and excited. We packed some necessary things like food, water money and cloths. We started our journey the next day early in the morning because the destination place was far away, so if we began in the morning, then we reached in the evening.

While driving our car was stopped near a jungle, and there was no shop available.

What did you do?

My cousin and I told that we tried to find out someone in the jungle who helped us. When we entered the jungle, we lost our path after walking a few kilometres, and we got tensed how we went back to the car. We tried the phone, but unfortunately, the network was not available.

How you felt about it

We also heard some horrible sounds in the jungle, and we got afraid. Suddenly we saw two people walking toward us. We requested them. They helped us, and we reached back to our car. So that was the time when I lost in a place.
