  • What is it like where you live?

I live in a residential area of a busy town in the south of Spain … we have all the facilities you need … good public transport … a good shopping centre … it’s nice …

  • Do you like living in the city?

Yes I do … I like going out with my friends and there are lots of lively bars and restaurants within walking distance of my apartment … I’m a bit of a culture vulture as well so it’s great to have access to art exhibitions and that kind of thing …

  • Do you get many tourists visiting your area?

Not really no … I live in the inner-city and the area is a little run down … it’s basically a lot of high-rise flats and many of the shops are boarded up … so nothing to interest tourists really …

Bài mẫu IELTS Speaking: Part 2-Style task

Describe an interesting town or city in your country that visitors might enjoy. You should say

· what the place is called

· where the place is

· what the facilities are like

and say why visitors might enjoy going there.

Anyone who comes to my country really should spend some time in Barcelona … it’s a beautiful place … it’s not what you would call a sprawling city … it’s quite compact really and you could walk across the city in a couple of hours … but there’s no need to do that as we have a fantastic public transport system so it’s easy to get around … there are various districts all with their own character … you have the upmarket shops in the centre … you’ll find lots of chain stores you’ll recognise from your own country but also local brands as well … we have the narrow streets in the Gothic district with lots of fashionable boutiques and tourist attractions … There’s the Olympic area and the beaches along the coast … and dotted around the city are some lovely public spaces … parks and squares in the city centre and on the outskirts of Barcelona where people relax with their friends and family … and of course pavement cafes everywhere … all that and some great historical places of interest … so a great destination for tourists …

Bài mẫu IELTS Speaking: Part 3-Style questions

  • What are the advantages of living in a city or big town?

I think it’s having access to local facilities really … local shops as well as access to larger shopping malls in the city centre … and if you’re well-off you can afford to live in the suburbs away from the busy traffic …

  • In your experience are city centres usually attractive places?

Some can be yes … especially those with a historical interest … but sometimes they’re full of ugly office blocks multi-story car parks … and residents living in poor housing… it depends on the city doesn’t it?

  • What are some of the challenges facing towns and cities?

I suppose traffic congestion is a major problem … and the growth in out-of-town supermarkets and retail parks mean lots of town centre shops are closing down … plus a shortage of good quality housing … I think these are the major challenges …
