Describe a quiet place you visited.
You should say:
- where It was:
- when you went where:
- what you did there:
- and explain why you think it was quiet.
I’m an introvert and not really keen on socializing with other, so I often find a noiseless spot to frequent to every time I’m stressed out from work or study. It’s thermal and cozy café within a walking distance from my house.
Unlike other coffee shops in the vicinity of my neighborhood the atmosphere here is extremely tranquil and serene, which greatly lives up to my expectation. As a person with heavy amounts of daily workload, the cafe gives me a feeling of peacefulness and calmness, especially during nerve-racking periods like final exams when I am up to ears in revision and reviewing.
What leaves the most profound impression on me is the complete silence in the café as the shop owner fortunately is not interested in music of any kind, so 10 background music is expected when you come here. I can increase my concentration span while reading a book or other materials and finish work with great productivity compared to when I’m at home, surrounded by many disturbances like babies crying and neighbors arguing. One bonus point is that the coffee there is second to none, which caters to my unique tastes. The foods are really delicately made and sumptuous, giving me great refreshing energy when suffering from fatigue and stress, I have to admit.
