Describe an interesting part of your country. v. 1

Describe an interesting part of your country. You should say: where it is what people can see and do there what it is famous for and explain why you think it is an interesting place.   [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 a site to one of the 7th wonders of the world, it is not really necessary to introduce China anew. But, then again, a country as huge, unique and diverse as China, with more than 4000 years of recorded history, certainly deserves to be re-discovered again and again. For now, we will just talk about an interesting part of my country (instead of the whole country) just to see what it has in store for us and the rest of the world. The name of this place is “Chengdu” (the capital city of the Sichuan province) which is located in the southwest part of China. Chengdu is a very interesting place because of its many cultural, natural and historical sites in and around the city. In fact, west Chengdu offers some of the most beautiful and breathtaking natural sceneries in China. If someone wants to see some crystal-clear lakes, waterfalls, colourful ponds, small canyons and mountains covered with snow, Chengdu is the place to go. Chengdu is also home to many “Tibetan” people. In fact, as soon as you step into this great city, consider that you have started your journey into the “mysterious world of Tibet”. However, apart from being an interesting place, Chengdu is one of the most, if not the most, famous place in the world for a very special and unique reason. Can you guess why? Well, the place is so famous because it is home to one of the most beautiful and cute creatures under the sky called “Pandas”. In fact, this is the number one reason for which tourists from all over the world visit “Chengdu”. The lovely giant pandas and panda cubs there are just so adorable that you will actually want to work there as a “panda keeper”. And guess what, you can actually become one! This place is also very famous for its delicious “Sichuan dishes” like “Kung Pao Chicken” and Hotpot which can be really, really spicy and hot! Finally, this place is also a famous place because if you remember “Po” in movie “Kung Fu Panda 2”, then you should also remember how the big, chubby, squishy and cuddly panda “Po” visited Chengdu (his home town) to learn more about his ancestors and family history! Pretty neat, isn’t it!

Model Answer 1: Being a site to one of the 7th wonders of the
world
, it is not
really
necessary to introduce China anew.
But
, then again, a
country
as huge, unique and diverse as China, with more than 4000 years of recorded history,
certainly
deserves to be re-discovered again and again. For
now
, we will
just
talk about an
interesting
part of my
country
(
instead
of the whole
country)
just
to
see
what it has in store for us and the rest of the
world
. The name of this
place
is “Chengdu” (the capital city of the Sichuan province) which
is located
in the southwest part of China. Chengdu is a
very
interesting
place
because
of its
many
cultural, natural and historical sites in and around the city. In fact, west Chengdu offers
some
of the most
beautiful
and breathtaking natural sceneries in China. If someone wants to
see
some
crystal-
clear

soon
as you step into this great city, consider that you have
started
your journey into the “mysterious

of Tibet”.
However
, apart from being an
interesting
place
, Chengdu is one of the most, if not the most,
famous
place
in the
world
for a
very
special and unique reason. Can you guess why? Well, the
place
is
so
famous
because
it is home to one of the most
beautiful
and cute creatures under the sky called “Pandas”. In fact, this is the number one reason for which tourists from all over the
world
visit “Chengdu”. The lovely giant pandas and panda cubs there are

place
is

a
famous
place
because
if you remember “Po” in movie “
Kung
