Sample Answers

1. Do you like walking?

Walking is unavoidable, especially when you live on campus. You go to school on foot, you go to buy food on foot, you walk here and there everyday. There are days that my legs actually killed me. Therefore, I have to say that walking is not my cup of tea, although I have to walk on a daily basis.

2. Do you like to walk on your own or with others?

Say if I’m in a hurry, I just walk or run as fast as I can, no time for chit-chat right? But even when there’s a plenty of time, walking is ideal to calm down, breath in some fresh air and enjoy the world outside in silence. Every once in a while I take a long walk after school. So I think I’m more into walking on my own.

Chit-chat (noun) informal conversation about unimportant matters

To calm down (n) to feel more relaxed

Once in a while (idiom) sometimes

To be into something (idiom) to be interested in something

3. Would you say that your city is a good place for walking?

Walking is not as popular as it used to be in my city, as more and more people prefer riding a motorbike. So currently there are fewer parks and walking areas for residents. Moreover, walking under such hot weather and heavily polluted air is definitely not a good idea. So I would not recommend my city as a good place for walking.

Vocabulary

Resident (noun) a person who lives in a place permanently

4. Do people in your country walk a lot?

Nowadays they don’t walk as much as they used to in the past. Private transportation is becoming more affordable and diverse in terms of price, design and quality. You may easily catch sign of the middle-aged and the elderly walking in the park or on the street, and they all look like they are enjoying themselves.

Vocabulary

Diverse (adj) of various kinds or forms

Middle-aged (adj) being in the time in a person’s life between youth and old age

5. Do you think walking is important?

Absolutely. Walking is the most convenient and simple exercise. Not only do people of all age & all walks of life can do it, but it also encourages us to get outdoor to change a bit of our surroundings, thereby helping us relax and stay balanced.

Vocabulary:

Walk of life (phrase) An occupation, profession, or social class

6. Do you walk more than in the past?

I definitely do. When I stayed at home, I took the bus to school, and all my chores were done for me. Now I live on campus. I have to walk from my dorm room to class and back. I have to walk around campus to buy stuff, and get things done. So I definitely walk a lot more than before. 

7. Do you think walking in the countryside is better than walking in the city?

I obviously think it is much better to go for a stroll in the countryside than in the city because the air in the countryside is fresher and healthy to breathe, unlike that in big cities which contains toxic chemicals. Also there is less traffic in the country so it is less likely for one to get hit by a car while walking, which happens pretty often in cities, unfortunately.

Vocabulary

Go for a stroll (phrase) walk slowly in a relaxed way

Toxic chemical (collocation) any chemical can cause death, temporary incapacitation, or permanent harm to humans or animals

8. What could be done to improve the experience of walking in cities?

Well, this is an interesting question to think about. I certainly think people in big cities should be encouraged to walk more. In order for this to be done, they need to be ensured that walking in the city is healthy and safe. Bigger and better sidewalks with walking times and directions to various destinations should be considered by the relevant authorities.
