“Last month (15/11), my friends in Ikatan Mahasiswa Muhammadiyah (IMM) and I went to Baron Beach. It was my first trip while I moved to Solo. We went to Baron Beach for refreshing after mid semester test, and for discussed about our organization. We went from campus at 08.00 and arrived at about 10.30. We used motorcycle, because we were 21, so we need 11 motorcycles.
When we arrived, the first activity we did was ran to the water and played with the wave. It was made my trousers wet, but it was no problem, because I enjoyed it and I am so happy. We took the pictures of us and the sceneries of the beach. After we were satisfied, we back to land and start discussed about IMM. We shared our opinion to making IMM better than now.
At the same time, we enjoyed the snack that we had prepared before. It was finish until Adzan for noon prayer heard. We praying together, and after that we decided to go to next destination. It was Krakal Beach. Krakal beach near from Baron Beach, so we just need about 10 minutes to reached it. I thought Krakal is better than Baron. Because in Baron I saw many rubbish anywhere, but no in Krakal.
In there, we did the same activity like in Baron, jumped to the water, played with the wave, and took the pictures. But I did other activity beside that, it was searched and catch the shells and others little animal water and saved it in a cup of mineral water. In the middle of our activity, we took eat together. When 16.00 o’clock came, we stopped our activity and prepared for go home. We arrived in campus about 19.00. It was a wonderful day and my great experience, and I can’t wait to go back again.”
Untuk orang yang sangat mahir berBahasa Inggris dan untuk orang yang sama sekali tidak ‘mudeng’ Bahasa Inggris, pasti sama-sama kurang ‘mudeng’ dengan ceritaku di atas. Hal itu bisa dikarenakan structure dan grammar yang aku pakai ‘error’ dan menyebabkan artinya kabur, atau bahkan karena memang ’nggak ngerti’ dengan bahasa bule ini. Jadi inti cerita di atas itu adalah: pokok’e jalan-jalan ke Pantai Baron dan Krakal itu MENYENANGKAN!
Tulisan 3 paragraf di atas itu sebenarnya bukan dikerjakan khusus semata-mata untuk memamerkan kemampuan Bahasa Inggrisku yang di bawah rata-rata, tapi sebenarnya ada unsur keterpaksaan untuk mengerjakannya karena itu merupakan salah satu tugas akhir writing yang harus dikumpulkan sebagai salah satu syarat untuk mengikuti UAS. (Semoga nilaiku memuaskan!)
