Describe a school that you went to when you were a child.
You should say:
Where the school was
What the school and the teachers were like
What you learned there
And explain whether you enjoyed your time there.
I’d like to talk about my primary school. I used to study at Ningbo Experimental Primary School559. It’s within walking distance of my home. It usually took me a 5-or-6-minute walk to get there. So my parents rarely gave me a ride to school but let me walk there. They said it was for boosting my sense of independence360.
Anyway, as I remember, my primary school was always the best in our neighbourhood. The teaching quality and hardware facilities were top-level in my hometown. The headmaster and teachers there were really nice. And I liked the music teacher the most out of all the teachers361. She really opened my eyes362 when it came to music. She was a lovable lady, and she treated us like friends. Of course there is another reason why I like her best; we never had to do any homework, which was really the cherry on top363.
My elementary school provided a wide selection of subjects. Besides basic classes including Chinese, math, and English, we also had many practical courses364 For example, I learned needlework and paper cutting365 during my primary school year.
Now, it’s been almost twenty years since I graduated. But I still miss my childhood there whenever I recall that school. Compared to the life I live now, the several years in primary school were the happiest and most relaxed period of life I’ve ever enjoyed. To be honest, if I could, I wish I could go back to my childhood and never grow up.
