Is this a question for primary or secondary school?

Early suggestions would be using words like eerie and so on. The textbook approach to a ghost scene is to have it an abandoned house, with creaking floorboards etc.

I think setting the scene is important. There are classic settings of course, as mjhansford mentioned - the abandoned house etc - but really any setting, described in the right way, could be suitable. I think there would need to be unexpected creepy things about the setting - maybe a broken window, some strange sounds, a curtain moving though there is no breeze..... I think for how the person is feeling, then again the unexpected could be useful. For instance was the person suddenly shivering as if it was mid winter, even though it is a hot summer's day? Good luck, and please let me know if I can help further.
