Berikut adalah contoh recount text dalam bahasa Inggris:
1. My Ashamed Experience
I had an experience which I still remember. It makes me feel sinful if I memorize it. I would like to tell you about that. It happened in 2006 when I was still studying English at LIA course.
It was about the conflict between my mother and I. The conflict began when my mother forgot to ask me to pray Asar. I was angry because my mother do not pay attention to me. Ouch, I felt so childish. I was 17 years old, anyway. I was angry to her by wanted nothing to eat. For two days, I did not want to eat even when my mother asked me. It was Saturday and Sunday. When Monday was coming, I went to LIA course as usual. I went there without had a breakfast even my mother asked me. When I arrived to LIA, I took a sit.
It was watching time. When the movie began, I and the other students watched. In the middle of the story, suddenly I felt something unpleasant with my body. I had got headache. Then, I decided to get permission from teacher to the toilet (that actually I wanted to go to canteen to buy a slice of bread). I stand up from my chair. I walked to the teacher who sat in the chair which was near to the out–door class. When I reached there, I fell down. They helped me. They took me to the teachers’ room. Then, after I woke up from being down, some teachers took me home. I was ashamed at that time. When we arrived in my home, a teacher told my mother that I fell down in LIA.
Then after they leaved us, I apologized to my mother that I had great wrong did to her. I was so sorry. I did not want to do such a childish thing anymore.
2. My First Time in Yogyakarta
My family and I went to my grandmother’s house in Yogyakarta last month. It was my first trip to this city. We went there two days after my sister’s graduation ceremony. Then, wearrived at Yogyakarta at night. After that, spent a week staying in my grandmother’s house which is 5 minutes away by foot to Malioboro street.
In the first morning, we were still too tired after a long trip from Semarang to Yogyakarta. So, we decided to stay at home to recharge our energy. I walk around the neighborhood with my sister just to experience how it is like to be in Yogyakarta. There were too many house, I think, which made the space between a house and the other was so small, even the road was also small that only bicycle and motorcycle can go through.
In the second day, all of us went to Malioboro street. We saw so many merchant with various of product which they claim to be a traditional product of Yogyakarta. I bought some wooden figurine and T-shirt with the word “Yogyakarta” printed on it, while my sister bought some leather handbag. My mom and dad were busy choosing some merchandise to be brought home when we go back.
On the third day, we went to Taman Sari and Keraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat to see some historical building in Yogyakarta. We took a lot of picture there and took some picture of the building so we can check it again at home. Then, we found some place providing Yogya traditional food around the building and we jumped in right away.
3. My Holiday with My Family at Pangandaran Beach
Last month was New Year holiday. I and my family went to Pangandaran beach for a vacation. We took a tourism bus to go there. We left at 07.00 o’clock in the morning. The trip took about four hours and we arrived at around 11.00 am.
As we arrived there, I walked down to the beach. It was a nice sunny day with a blue sky and a gentle breeze. I saw some seagulls flew around hunting for fish. The waves there were suitable for swimming, but I didn’t swim because I couldn’t swim and only play with the water on shallow part. We also didn’t miss our opportunity here taking some pictures with the background of scenic Pangandaran beach.
Before we went home, I looked for some beautiful souvenir at the nearby shop there. Eventually, we went home at about 05.00 pm. It was a memorable experience for me with my family.
We spent the rest of our week in Yogyakarta by visiting some Shopping Malls such as Jogja City Mall, Malioboro Mall, Hartono Mall and Ambarrukmo Plaza. We realized that Yogyakarta turned out to be very warm during the day, that was the reason why we decided to spend more time in air conditioned building like this.
4. Watching Movie
My sister and I went to see a film last night. It was an American movie called The Lost Flight. The movie showed how people can quickly change when they have to look after themselves in the jungle. That was an interesting film about a plane which crashed on a small empty island in the Pacific Ocean.
Although the passengers were safe, nobody knew where the plane had crashed. So the passengers had to learn how to hunt for food in the jungle and how to catch fish from the sea to eat. After a few weeks, the passengers were eating raw fish and meat.
After they had been on the island for two months, three of the men made a boat and sailed away to find help. But their boat sank and they were drowned.
The film ended without saying whether the passengers were rescued or not. But my sister and I enjoyed the film.
5. My Great Day of Proposing Girl
I woke up at about five o’clock yesterday. It was not a regular day, because I was about to propose a girl.
After praying and taking a bath, I had my early breakfast. At about nine o’clock I was in my office but my soul was not there. I was thinking about the lines that I had to say to her.
At one o’clock, I had my lunch but I was not enjoying it either. So, I practiced the lines to almost all girls I met at my lunch. Yes, I was a little bit crazy. Finally, it was three o’clock. I remember all my lines and wrap my works and get ready to pick her up and of course proposed her.
I met her at four o’clock, took a little walk and went to a movie. At seven, we had a romantic dinner. I thought it was the perfect time to ask her to be my wife. Then I said the lines that I practiced the whole afternoon.
She smiled. I reached my pocket to get a ring and put it around her finger. Then she said “Yes.” After driven her home I went back to my house.
6. My Rush Time as a Journalist
I usually woke up at eight o’clock a.m. and went to the Press Center to check the daily schedule of briefings and press conferences. It was usually held by the United Nation officials or disaster mitigation team.
It was challenging to visit different refugee camps to find soft stories, human interest stories. After that I went back to the Press Center to cover the press conferences of the day.
It was heart breaking when I saw these survivors fight for food and secondhand clothing. Unfortunately as they said, the food and clothing were limited and inadequate. Emerging to glaring, fool noon, it was time to go back to Press Center to write stories and race against time. I was always fearing that the internet would come crushing down.
After everything was done, only then I remembered to eat. Most times, I only ate once a day because I always had to rush and again it was difficult to find food. I had to travel quite far. I needed to spend a 30 to 45 minutes by car just to find fresh food.
7. My Rain Forest Adventure
Today I woke up at 5 am in the morning. I put on my loose-fitting shirt, trousers, sturdy black boots with little holes in them, wide brimmed hat and a plastic bag with spare dry clothes in case it rained so I didn’t get a cold. When I got out of the four-wheel drive I could feel the refreshing cool air, it smelt like it had been raining for ages before I came to the rain forest. I decided to explore the forest floor.
The first animal I saw was a magnificent, giant eastern brown snake. I was so scared I felt like I wanted to run but that would be really dangerous!
The second animal I spotted was a beetle eating a rotten berry. I bent down to have a closer look but it stank like rotten eggs and onion mixed together.
Then I turned to the right and saw a bower bird collecting lots of blue stuff like wrappers and blue flowers. It had beautiful, magnificent, midnight-blue eyes and it looked very graceful.
By now I had seen enough on the forest floor so I decided to go to the under storey. So I went to the bridge in the under storey 20 m high off the forest floor.
The first animal I saw in the under storey was a massive, graceful, blue butterfly sucking pollen off a beautiful orchid. That was my favorite animal so far of all the animals I saw.
The second animal I spotted was a black bat hanging upside down on the branch near me. Before I arrived at the rain forest I thought we would not see a bat because I was going in the day and bats are nocturnal.
The third animal I spotted was a gray Boyd’s dragon it was eating lots of bugs and beetles. I looked down to the forest floor and saw a little stream, it had a cute, little platypus looking after her five tiny, mini babies.
By now I had had enough of the under story so I decided to go up the ladder to the canopy. I already knew that we would see lots of brightly colored birds in the canopy.
I went up the ladder and on the way up I already saw lots of birds and lots of berries and colorful, beautiful, rainbow flowers. When I got to the canopy I was 30 m high.
The first animal I saw in the canopy was a Crimson Rosella it was eating seeds off some beautiful flowers. The Crimson Rosella was dark red and midnight-blue on its tail and wings.
I can see the emergent trees 50 m tall.There is a wedge-tail eagle looking for food and other little animals.
I had a great time, because I liked the rain forest. The most terrifying animal was the eastern brown snake. I liked the blue butterfly the best of all the animals.

9. Traveling Around The World
Deri saved his money and spent two months traveling around the world. He wrote his journey in his diary.
I spent a week in New York and then flew to London and enjoyed several weeks in Europe. When I had seen the sights in Europe, I took a train to Istanbul and visited many places in Asia.
First, I flew from his home in Mexico City to New York City. After through Asia, I went to south America and finally back home to Indonesia. Deri felt tired but he was very excited and wanted to travel again.
10. Fishing at The River
When I was in Junior High School, my father once took me to go fishing with him at the river on Sunday morning. The river lies across our oil palm plantation. We had breakfast first at home and then left early in the morning by motorcycle.
When we arrived in our plantation, my father parked the motorcycle under the hut. He asked me to collect some dry wood and dry grass or leaves. When I already collected enough wood and dry leaves, my father set a fire in the center of the fireplace. He said that the smoke from the fire would scare some dangerous animal like bear and boar to come closer to the hut and so it would make us safer.
After cleaning some wild grass around the hut, my father gave me a hoe and asked me to dig some soil to find worms. When I already had enough worm, I brought it to my father and we went straight to the river. We put the worm on the fishing hook as a bait to catch the fish. As a beginner fisher, I cannot apply the worm on the fishing hook well, and it look like it was about to fall of the hook, but my father said that it was okay. I threw the fishing hook into the river and wait for the fish to eat the bait, but nothing happened after a while. When I was about to get bored I saw a big prawn was slowly walking in the water.
I placed the fishing hook slowly into the face of the prawn. I move it up and down. The worm seemed alive. I never expected it to happen. But, suddenly the prawn moves its hand and grabbed the worm on my fishing hook.
I lift it very slowly and the prawn was still there hanging tight on the worm until I placed it on the ground and I caught it right away with my hands. My father was so surprise to see it. Before we went home, we cooked it at the hut and enjoyed it together.
