IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card
Talk about a new public building or place, which you would like to visit.
You should say:
Which building/place is it?
Where is it?
When would you like to visit it?
With whom would you like to visit?
Why do you want to visit it?
Note: 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.
Which building/place is it and Where?
I’m going to tell you about a new skyscraper located at the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, which is called Landmark 81, and it’s currently the highest building in Southeast Asia, with 81 floors. I actually got to know this building when I moved to Ho Chi Minh City for my university life.
How you get there?
It is very accessible to get to the building since public transport is always available. I usually take a bus, which drops me off directly at the building.
What it looks like?
The bottom half of the tower is filled with shopping malls and advanced types of entertainment, and the top half is offices for lease. The offices are really high-priced due to the location and views, which make them very desirable. Not only is it one of the highest skyscrapers in the city, but it also possesses an eye-catching architectural design, which is likely to absorb any one’s attention. The original design of this tower is inspired by bamboo trees, which symbolizes the solidarity and strength of the Vietnamese people.
and explain why you like this place? and Why do you want to visit it? and With whom would you like to visit?
I have definitely fallen for the design of this tower since it absolutely stands out. Recently, it has become a famous landmark in the city. Moreover, meeting friends is just a piece of cake thanks to its exotic appearance. Especially, there are lively bars, restaurants on the 77th floor, which will give you a magnificent view as there are no walls, so you can enjoy the city in any direction. I would highly recommend anyone who visits this tower to go there and give it a try.
