Describe a time that you arrived at a place early.
You should say:
When it happened;
Where it happened;
What you did ;
and explain why you arrived there early.
It is a detailed recall of my memory. As for a time that I arrived at a place early, I would like to say the experience that I took part in the IELTS speaking test at first time. It was in May of 2015. My speaking test venue was Beijing Language and Culture University at that time. I got up one and an half hour earlier than usual for the speaking test. When I got there, I had to wait for one hour before I could enter the test classroom. So I opened my book to review the speaking topics. Suddenly a girl who was also sitting the waiting room dropped her personal water bottle. All water splashed and flowed out but it seemed that she didn’t take any facial tissues or napkins to clean it up. She looked like embarrassed. Then I gave her mine. She was very grateful. After the test, she asked me to go with her. And now we have become friends.
I went to the test venue early because I didn’t have enough preparation for my speaking test. You know, at that moment, getting up earlier and arrive there earlier could be a kind of psychological compensation and comfort since you have no other choice or efforts to do for the test. Besides that, I wasn’t familiar with the route to get there although I was sure it was not so complicated to find the university. I didn’t have a good score of my IELTS speaking test at that time, but unexpectedly, I got a friend. The story told me that “better late than never; better earlier than later”.
