Sample Answers:

1. What’s (the name of) your hometown?

Victoria is my hometown which’s a province located in the west of my country.

2. Is that a big city or a small place?

Actually, it is a small province with slightly more than 1 million people. It has breathtaking view of picturesque landscapes with mountains and lakes. However, due to the increasing economy, a number of business, especially in sugarcane, are invested in my hometown that turns it into a promising area.

3. Please describe your hometown a little?

My hometown is both traditional and modern. On the one hand, tradition is preserved by a number of festivals celebrated by local people. On the other hand, we preserve the historical sites for tourism and education.

Vocabulary

Historical sites (n) a building that was built in the past

4. How long have you been living there?

I had lived there around 15 years before my family left for Santa City. It’s more than ten years since the day I left my hometown, but it is indeed a good memory of my childhood.

5. What do you like (most) about your hometown?

I like the hospitality and the love of people there which I hardly find them in my current place. Everyone is living close together and willing to give others a hand when they need help.

Vocabulary

Hospitality (n) The friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers

Give someone a hand (idiom) to help someone do something

6. Is there anything you dislike about it?

Personally, it’s a bit boring for me because as a small town, there is not much shopping mall or any other means of entertainment. The streets are not very crowded as well. However, I believe that it has been improving day by day and becoming a potential hotspot due to the increasing number of annual visitors.

7. Do you think you will continue living there for a long time?

To be honest, I hope I could come back there one day to visit my relatives and friends, but to settle down my life there is not my plan. I am getting familiar with city life and there are more job opportunities for my future career.

Vocabulary

To settle down (v) adopt a more steady or secure style of life, especially in a permanent job and home

8. Has your hometown changed much since you were a child?

Actually yes. It has changed enormously. 20 years ago I could barely find tall building around my area, but now I can easily catch sight of skyscrapers and tower blocks there.

9. Are there any changes you would like to make in your hometown?

I would like to ameliorate the infrastructure conditions there so that I can avoid being stuck in the traffic jam during the rush hours.
