#EngGame: Describe your holiday with an adjective!

Hello, fellas. What’s up? ‘Mudik’ is an annual event here in Indonesia, especially near big holiday such as Lebaran. Those who left their hometown to work and look for a better and more prosperous life would go home for the holiday. Usually around a week after the holiday, they would race back to town to return to their work. On the peak of ‘arus balik’ Lebaran, tolls and provincial accesses are always jam-packed.

Anyway, who knows what’s the English for ‘arus balik Lebaran‘? :)

“Eid backflow” – @Robertoberto21

“Yes, ‘arus balik’ is backflow. Arus balik Lebaran = backflow of Lebaran. Thank you. :”)” – @EnglishTips4U

In this occassion, let’s play a little bit… with adjective. I’m sure you know what adjective is. And the topic is related to your holiday. :)

Do you know an adjective can have either positive or negative connotation. E.g. happy = positive; sad = negative. Can you give other examples? :)

  • “what about this ? Good= Positive, Bad = Negative” – @Ffa_Nifa
  • “Lazy = negative >< clever = positive” – @_heniie
  • “Beautiful = positive” – @SaarahFzh
  • “How about Positive = positive and negative = negative” – @dwisusilawati

Now this is what you should do for the #EngGame: Fill in the gap with an adjective with appropriate connotation based on sentence’s context.

I’m only gonna give 2 sentences and you have to be as creative as possible if you want to be featured in this article. Let’s look at these examples first. Example:

  • I feel happy because I had a/an ….. holiday.” (fill in the gap with an adjective. Don’t forget to choose between a/an)
  • “I feel happy beause I had a good holiday” – @alfayzadivaa

Remember: Please type in full sentence and use appropriate punctuation.

More example:

  • I feel sad because I had a/an ……… holiday.
  • You have to use adjectives other than ‘good’ or ‘bad’ if you want to be featured. They’re too generic. :)

All right. Time for some show some responses we got. Behold… the adjectives! :D

  28. ‏@masyoza: “I feel sad because I had a lonely holiday.”
  29. @dnovac: “I feel sad because I had an unbelievably tedious holiday.”

Also, still remember ‘participial adjective’? Read here: #EngClass: participial adjective. For ‘holiday’ is it ‘boring’ or ‘bored’? Because the holiday ’causes the feeling’ so we use the V-ing form: boring = membosankan = liburannya membosankan.

Well, that’s the end of this article. I hope you enjoyed it and found it useful. Practice your English by experimenting with it. :)
