IELTS Speaking Part 2 Topic:
Describe your favourite park in your city.
You should say:
- where it is
- how can you go there
- how frequently you go there
and explain why this is your favourite park.
Though the city is crowded with a lot of people, there are some places I would like to go to whenever I want to escape for a while. Among those places, I like visiting the Hanoi Botanic Garden, my favorite park in city, which is located near West Lake.
I have to say that there are a number of parks in Hanoi, which are mostly near residential areas. In the evenings or weekends, people often gather there for exercising or chatting. I would prefer a large and peaceful place for a short hibernation. Thus, Hanoi Botanical Garden is always among my short listed ones when it comes to park. It is about 3 kilometers from my house so I often drive there, mostly by bicycle, about 2 times a week. As there are many trees in this park, I can enjoy fresh air and peaceful environment there. It’s like a short escape from a noisy, narrow and busy city outside. I often bring a book to this park, hiding under a tree and getting into the story. This kind of activity helps nurture my soul as well as relax a little bit before coming back into real life.
Honestly, as I am an introvert, I do not prefer the bustle of crowded places like club or bar. Instead, I would prefer a peaceful places, thus, to some extent,I might be considered as boring people, regardless the fact that I’m still on my 20s now. However, it doesn’t matter much to me as I think that everyone has their own lifestyle, which contribute to the variety of personalities in our society.
