Model Answer 1:

Calligraphy may be the first skill I learned when I was a child. I moved to the Central Primary School in grade 3. One teacher Mr. Wang who was a calligraphy lover opened an interest-oriented class. Actually, I was his first student, and he poured all his passion on me. First of all, I was asked to copy the hard-pen calligraphy of Zhonghua Pang, a famous calligrapher, educator, and poet. After nearly one year’s practice with piles of written books, I was required to write independently. I was amazed by the beautiful letters wrote by myself. Thanks to my teacher Mr. Wang and calligrapher Zhonghua Pang. My calligraphy experience really benefited my future learning.

From middle school to college, I was the one who always asked to be responsible for the blackboard and hand-copied newspapers. I am confident that it will also useful in my future career.
