Describe your journey to your school or office.

You should say:

  • what type of transport you use
  • how long it takes
  • whether you use the same type of vehicle always

and explain if you enjoy it or not.

[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:

Travelling at least one hour, back and forth, from home to office and vice versa every day may seem to be an easy task on the surface, but when you are travelling at least five days per week, it suddenly doesn’t seem to be so easy unless your journey is reasonably comfortable.

Anyway, talking about my journey from my hometown (“Sintra” which is one of the major tourist destinations of Portugal and a suburb of capital Lisbon) to my office in Lisbon, which fortunately never gave me any trouble for my last few years of journey mainly because I use the train to travel back and forth even though it costs me little extra because I always try to travel by “urban” trains which only run between large cities like Lisbon to Porto and Lisbon to Sintra. By the way, there are four different kinds of trains in Portugal, depending on the distance they travel. Anyway, it takes a good 30 minutes to reach my office from my home but it doesn’t feel that long due to the fact that the trains in my country are very comfortable with spacious seats and comfortable temperatures no matter what time of the year you are travelling. And that’s exactly why, I always try to travel by train unless, of course, there is a valid reason to choose other means of transportation.

I enjoy my train journey from my home to office and vice versa because most of the area between Lisbon and Sintra is really scenic and beautiful as Sintra itself is a beautiful tourist spot. In fact, Portugal is a very beautiful country with beautiful mountainsides, vineyards, olive trees and sparkling sea coast.  Besides, the environment inside the train is remarkably peaceful with no unnecessary noise unlike the sound of AC on a bus. Finally, I absolutely enjoy the train journey because it is never really dependent on weather and as such very reliable. By the way, I rather enjoy the “rhythmic” sound of a moving train as it helps me take a little nap during my journey.
