Speaking Model Answers
1. Tell me about your hometown.
I just cannot express how lucky I am to have been born and grown up in Ho Chi Minh City, which is Vietnam’s largest and most well-developed municipality. For nearly half a century, it has shared the majority contribution to driving the national economy and is home to a wide range of diverse cultural and traditional values across the country.
2. What do you like about your residence?
The fact that my home sweet home lies right in the heart of my hometown is the ultimate thing I am happy to tell you about my accommodation. Do you know why? Because it facilitates my access to almost every public service I have a demand for. Even the closest cinema is only a few steps away from the gate.
3. Tell me the good things about your house.
Since my grandparents’ generation, our family has lived in a 3500-square-foot townhouse that features unique architectural designs from the French colonial era. It possesses a sufficient amount of space to actually accommodate two separate households and effectively reduce roadway noise to some degree. We can do any kind of fitness exercise everywhere around the house.
4. Is there anything you don’t like about it?
Absolutely not. None of us ever feel discontented with our house at all. Not only does it serve as a roof over our heads literally, but its location has also provided us with a great deal of convenience for decades so far.
5. Would you like to move to another place to live?
To me personally, it does not matter whether I happen to reside in a residential area or a rural province as long as my fundamental human needs are always fulfilled. Still, I would prefer not to change my accommodation for now because it takes me only minutes to ride my motorbike to my workplace.
6. What would you change about your city?
My answer to this question has never changed. The traffic conditions, of course. In my suggestion, the local government should build and provide more bus routes for the constantly growing number of daily commuters in Ho Chi Minh City. At the same time, a metropolitan rapid transit network had better be developed and put into service as soon as possible.
7. Would you recommend your neighborhood as a good place to live?
Definitely yes. Various public services and a safe social environment remain the two factors that render my community among the most delightful urban areas in the city to spend the rest of one’s life.
