    Marks:25
    Answer:

    Yesterday I went to the city hospital to visit my friend who was admitted there on account of high fever. My friend’s father called me on Monday evening and asked if I could visit him in the hospital. My friend was very sad and his father wanted me to encourage him.

    I took a bus to the hospital and reached the town bus station. From there I took a taxi to the hospital. It was a big hospital with a magnificent ten storied building. My friend’s Dad was waiting for me at the entrance and he took me to the room where my friend was admitted. He was on dextrose injection when I met him. He was looking tired and gloomy. I sat near him and encouraged him. My presence really cheered him up. We talked on various topics. Meanwhile doctors came to inspect him. They too encouraged him saying that he would be fine within a couple of days.

    I remained with him till 4 pm in the evening. My friend was very sad when I told him that I had to go. I promised to visit him again. Even after reaching home I was sad. I phoned his dad and he assured me that my friend’s health has improved a lot.

    Narrate a visit to your grandparents.

    Marks:25
    Answer:

    I was waiting for the Christmas holidays to visit my bellowed grandfather and grandmother. They lived in the countryside. We lived with them when I was a child. Later we shifted our residence to the city when my Dad got a job in the city.

    We reached our ancestral house on the eve of Christmas. Grandfather and grandmother were very happy. Soon after reaching the house we went for a stroll in the farm. I always loved the spacious ancestral house in the middle of the farm land. John, my brother and Joanna, my little sister also accompanied me.

    Mom prepared special dishes for Christmas. Grandmother helped her in the kitchen and Dad spent time with Grandfather talking to him. At 11 pm in the night we went to the Church for the Christmas services. The church was at a distance of half an hour ride from our ancestral home.

    We stayed with them for three days. I enjoyed time playing with my brother and sister. We took bath in the small river flowing nearby and spent some time fishing. We returned on Saturday evening and reached home on Sunday morning. Even after reaching our home my mind was filled with memories of the time we spent in our ancestral home with my dear Grandfather and Grandmother.

    Narrate a visit to the pyramids in Egypt.

    Marks:25
    Answer:

    I have read a lot of descriptions about the Great Pyramid of Giza, the oldest and the largest pyramid in Egypt. It is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. I was thrilled when Dad said that we were visiting Egypt in November. We reached Cairo by flight on 11 November. We hired a cab to the pyramids. The taxis were typically black and white. The driver was a friendly man and did not overcharge us. At the site of the pyramids we took help from a local tourist guide who took us inside the Great Pyramid of Giza. The Great Pyramid of Giza was built by Pharaoh Khufu. According to historians over 100,000 men worked on its construction. We ventured inside the pyramid through its dank, narrow corridors. We entered the pyramid by a passage which was cut by tomb robbers about 15 meters below the original entrance. The narrow tunnel led us into the Grand Gallery. The Tomb Chamber contained the open empty sarcophagus.

    On the eastern side of the pyramid of Giza we saw three smaller pyramids. Our guide said that they were made as the tombs for queens and a daughter of the Pharaoh.

    We also visited other smaller pyramids and the monument called Sphinx. It is a granite structure shaped like a lion. We also went for a camel ride and some shopping. It was indeed a long cherished dream came true.

    Answer:

    Our school arranged a study trip to English Oven, a biscuit factory in the city. All of us were very much excited because the brand was very famous in South Africa. They marketed different types of cookies. I liked their butter cookies. We reached the factory in the morning. It was a big factory with more than a hundred employees working there.

    The process of making cookies was mechanised. There were huge mixers where dough was mixed. The mixed dough passed through a conveyor belt to another section where the dough was pressed into different moulds to give particular shapes to the cookies. The cookies were taken to huge electric ovens where they were baked. The baked cookies were packed and sealed in another section. The packing was done by a big machine.

    We spent almost four hours inside the factory. The manager gifted us some freshly packed cookies. It was an amazing experience.

    Answer:

    Yesterday I visited a branch of FNB (the First National Bank) located in the city. Dad got a cheque from one of his clients and he didn't have time to en-cash it. He asked me to go to the bank but I was bit scared as I had not idea about the transactions done in a bank. However, I went in the morning. There were many people in the bank. I asked a gentleman to help me deposit the cheque with the cashier. There was a long queue and I waited for an hour for my turn. The cashier asked me to fill up a form and to submit along with the cheque. He gave me R 2000. I also got my Dad's bank passbook updated. It was not as difficult as I thought. People and officers were very co-operative. It was a good learning experience for me. Now I am not frightened to transact at a bank.
