Part1

Do you live in a house or an apartment?

I live in an apartment because an apartment is cheaper than a house. At present I cannot afford a house, which would cost me millions of US dollars. But I feel that it is convenient to live in a flat, which is close to the schools, office blocks, hospitals and shopping malls.

What do you like most about your home?

Well, probably what I like most about my home is that we have a really great river view, because we live quite high up, on the 20th floor, and our flat is right next to the river. So I feel really lucky to have such a nice view, and I never get tired of it.

(Similar to above) What do you think could be improved about your home?

Well, I kind of like my home the way it is, but I guess if I had to change anything, then one thing I might do would be to get rid of the wall between my living room and kitchen, as it would then make things a lot more spacious.

How is that room decorated?

Well, regarding the walls, we’ve got a few family pictures hanging up, which gives the room a nice personal feel. And as for the flooring, we basically just decided to use ceramic tiles, because they’re very practical in terms of keeping clean, but we’ve also put a small carpet down by the sofa to make that area a little bit cozier. So all in all I’d say it’s a really nice room for chilling out in.

Part 2

Describe a historical place you went to

You should say

What the historical place was

Where the historical place was

When and with whom you went there

And explain what you like about the historical place

The historical place that I want to describe is the Bund of Shanghai, which had the history of more than 200 years. The Bund, with a length of 1.5 kilometers, is located in the Huangpu District which is downtown Shanghai. On the east of this area, you won't miss the mother river of Shanghai - Huangpu River; and on the west of it, you will see the 1930s resplendence of Shanghai proved by a row of buildings of variegated western architectures titled as 'the museum of international architecture’. During the colonization period of Shanghai about 200 years ago, many European colonists came to Shanghai to make fortunes. Meanwhile, they built a lot of buildings in the Bund. Those buildings had different styles of those European countries, including gothic, romanesaue and baroque. I went there so many times because I am a local Shanghainese. The most recent time was 3 months ago. I went to the Bund with my parents and my wife to experience the culture of the 1930s Shanghai. I like many aspects of the Bund. The first aspect is that the Bund combines the western and Chinese elements, in which you could see Chinese history and western influence. The second aspect I like about the Bund is that it is the most popular tourist attraction in China so I would meet many people from home and abroad, and talk with them about the things happened in Shanghai and overseas. The third aspect I like the Bund is that it is the cultural symbol of Shanghai. Whenever I wander in the Bund, I’m proud of the city I am living in.

Part 3

Why do some people like to go to historical places?

One reason is that visiting some historical places enables people to learn something about history and enrich their knowledge. The tour guides normally tell some interesting historical stories and we can know more about the culture. Another reason is that some historical places help people to ease stress.

What are some popular historical places in China?

I think the most popular historical place among Chinese people is palace, coz people can see a lot of delicate handcrafts and palaces always reflect the popular style of the buildings at ancient time. By visiting palaces, people can also get an understanding of the prosperity at that time, and this may give the visitors a sense of pride.

What do most people like to do when they visit a historical site?

I guess what the majority of people do is just, like, taking photos of the place. That’s really the main thing. But as well as that, most people will also look at the things on display and uh, what else?  Um…Oh yeah, and maybe buy one or two souvenirs to take back home as mementos. So that’s pretty much it really!

Would you say movies help people develop more interest in history?

Yeah, I’d say they can, because after all, movies are quite vivid and so they make history come alive. And another thing is that a lot of people can’t be bothered to read a book about history, but they’d gladly go and watch a film about it, simply because movies are a bit more entertaining. So yeah, I’d say they generally do help people become more interested in history.
