Materi Bab Review: Holiday ExperienceLearn about it! Writing our holiday experience is fun to do and telling others about it would be a nice sharing. Visiting interesting places would give us the unforgettable experience. We could keep the joy, the fun, and the positive energy of our holiday experience by documenting its memories. Moreover it might inspire others to go to those places because they become interested after knowing our story.
In documenting our holiday experience we can use the guideline of the generic structure of Recount Text. They are:
- Orientation : telling about the participants and the settings of the story
- Events : telling the events of the story in sequence (using chronological order)
- Re-orientation : giving the closure of the events that we told
The main purpose (the social function) of writing recount text is to give information and entertainment to the readers. Since the events happened in the past we have to write it using Simple Past Tense. It means we have to use Verb 2 (past participle). The examples are given in the following table.
Example of generic structure in story text
My Trip to SingarajaOrientation
Last holiday I had a chance to visit Singaraja, one of the beautiful cities in Bali. It was my first trip to this paradise island. I took a bus to go to there. It was really fun to go there by bus because I could enjoy the scenery clearly from the bus’ window. The window’s view along the coast line was awesome.
Singaraja was a nice city. I was lucky when I got there because there was an art festival. It was very interesting to see. The art was creatively displayed. There was one work stole my interest most. I never thought that a tree can be transformed into a unique art show.
Being in the bus for about 20 hours was nothing because my holiday was great. I really enjoyed my trip.
