Lesson 15: IELTS Town and City
a) Examples of IELTS Speaking Part 1 questions:
Examiner: What is it like where you live?
Candidate: 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 center … it’s nice …
Examiner: Do you like living in the city?
Candidate: 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 …
Examiner: Do you get many tourists visiting your area?
Candidate: 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 …

b) Examples of IELTS Speaking Part 2 questions:
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 pretty 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 great 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 center… you’ll find lots of chain stores you’ll recognize 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 center 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 an excellent destination for tourists …

c) Examples of IELTS Speaking Part 3 questions:
Examiner: What are the advantages of living in a city or big town?
Candidate: I think it’s having access to local facilities really … local shops as well as access to larger shopping malls in the city center… and if you’re well-off you can afford to live in the suburbs away from the busy traffic …
Examiner: In your experience are city centers usually attractive places?
Candidate: 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?
Examiner: What are some of the challenges facing towns and cities?
