واژگان بخش اول اسپیکینگ آیلتس:Hometown
What is it like where you live?
Well, I live in Toronto, which is a quite cosmopolitan city in Canada. You can see people from different ethic backgrounds, from all over the world. It is also a very vibrant city. There are a lot of artists, art galleries, and museums.
Where I live is a very lively place. People are always excited on the street, and bars are always packed. But sometimes, I feel it is a bit too hectic on holidays.
I live in the suburbs. It is kind of a rural area. There are a lot of farms, and some of the buildings are run-down. But it is a close-knit community.
I live in a residential area, in a town, in India. It is kind of an old city, really. A lot of buildings are run-down, but we have got some quaint shops.
Could you tell me a bit more about your hometown?
My hometown is located in Italy. It is a sprawling city, so it takes a while to get around in it. But it has developed better public transport recently.
My hometown, Tokyo, is a huge metropolitan city. People there are very urban, and there are a lot of contemporary stores. It is also a very touristic city. You can see tourists all the time.
