Buildings and Architecture: IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample Answer
Speaking Part 3
1 Do you think it is good to preserve old buildings?
It depends on whether the building is worth preserving. Historical monuments, for example, need to be saved because of their cultural significance. On the other hand, if a building is old, ugly and has no importance then I don’t see why we should preserve it.
2 Are buildings now better than those in the past? Why?
Yes and no. The facilities are better, rooms are often fully equipped with whatever you may need. And there are lifts and convenient stores so you don’t have travel much to get what you want. But these buildings are also bad for the environment; their construction and operation release a lot of waste and heat, which pollute the environment and contribute to global warming.
3 Do you think the government should invest money in preserving old buildings?
If the buildings are really important to the country, yes. If they are well preserved, it will help bring in income that would be spent on the maintenance.
