SAMPLE ANSWER

I have enrolled in many English courses over the years and only a few of which was actually high-quality and helpful. One of the lessons I remembered most was the one during my senior year in high school which was delivered by Ms. Alex – our substitute teacher who was incredibly inspiring and humorous.

Since our main teacher was on holiday leave, Ms. Alex attended our class for only one day but it was enough for her to leave a profound impression on us. She was quite younger than other teachers but wasn’t less experienced at all. Though she hadn’t been teaching for more than a few years, her confidence and wide breadth of knowledge blew out mind. We didn’t have a new lesson on that day but a revision instead; therefore, Ms. Alex had prepared lots of interesting activities for us, which created a cheerful and energetic atmosphere within a classroom. We were able to participate in many games such as charades and bingos, revising old vocab and grammar as well as learning new things through her stories. She didn’t do all the speaking but encouraged us to voice our ideas and thinking, which made most of us feel uncomfortable at first since that was not how we were used to. However, in the end, everyone actively engaged in the games. Thanks to Ms. Alex, we had an opportunity to experience a very unconventional teaching method that didn’t make us bored out of our mind but actually was enticing, which I was so thankful for.
