Describe a popular place in your country.

You should say:

  • where it is
  • why people go to this place
  • what people can do there

and explain why this place is so popular.

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]


Model Answer 1:

Being the capital city of German for more than 800 years, Berlin in Germany is long recognized as a gigantic world city of culture, politics, media and science where people flock in from all over the world in order to enjoy its very diverse mix of sights.

There are just so many things to see and do in Berlin and it is not easy to decide where to start. But, I would say that people go to this place probably because it is a city full of flamboyant and interesting people, buzzing with the bohemian culture, and it is without a doubt, the coolest place in Europe. But, if it’s not for the exuberant atmosphere of Berlin, people go for, it’s probably the extensive history of over two thousand years, and if not for that, it’s probably for the mouth-watering foods and beer. Whether one wants to take a boat tour, hang out at the beach or enjoy the amazing nightlife, Berlin has it all.

Whatever the reasons may be, Berlin is a very popular place among the visitors because of its plethora of green spaces, swimming lakes and more than 2,500 public parks and gardens that offer locals and visitors a sight of mesmerizing natural beauty to enjoy. But if someone is into learning a bit of history,  he or she can certainly see Berlin Wall at East Side Gallery (left standing as a sign of German reunification in 1990), chilling Holocaust Memorial, the Stasi Museum, the German Historical Museum and the Book Burning Square. The city is also known for its art scene and modern landmarks like the gold-coloured, swoop-roofed Berliner Philharmonie, which was built in 1963.

Attracting about 5 million tourists every year, Berlin is popular not just because it reminds the turbulent 20th-century history of Germany up to the Cold War time, but it also remains as one of the most popular and safe tourist destinations in the world.
