IELTS Speaking Test | Part 2
IELTS Cue Card Speaking Answer | A place where you stayed away from home
She has a very old house near the coast and it has an amazing view of the sea. It was completely different from living in Rome, where I grew up as a child. The air is cleaner and the town is much smaller and quieter so it was a very nice change of pace to live there for the summer.
I had visited several times before when I was a child but had never stayed more than a day or so and I had always gone with my parents before – this time I went by myself – so it was quite different.
It was a really nice time and it’s also a really good place to live. It was very relaxing and refreshing to see something different and to meet some of the local people who are quite different from the people I usually hang out with in Rome.
If I wasn’t working in the bank and living in Rome I would maybe like to live in a place like that where life is slower and more relaxed, somewhere out of the city, but at the moment I’m concentrating on my career so the city has the best opportunities.
IELTS Speaking Test | Part 3
Have you stayed at a hotel before?
Do you think people like to stay at hotels? Why?
My father used to travel a lot and lived half of the week in hotels, he always had some interesting stories about other people he met and I think he quite enjoyed the variety rather than staying in only one place all the time.
What are the most important things that a good hotel should have?
But if you’re on vacation then you probably think more about it being in a nice location, maybe with a nice view, a balcony and comfortable rooms. In all cases, it’s important that the staff are warm and friendly and the service is good – that’s important if you’re travelling on business or on vacation.
Do you think hospitality jobs are desirable?
Really, hospitality is no different from any other commercial sector – there are many different aspects to it and many different kinds of jobs available. You can be a waiter or maid or develop a professional career as a manager in a large multinational hotel chain – so there are plenty of opportunities for everyone, just like in any other industry.
Do you think the hotel industry should be regulated? Why?
But I don’t know what else needs to be regulated … ah yes, health and safety, for example, a hotel has to make sure that guests can escape in the event of a fire or emergency, it needs to have emergency lighting and medical services, I think.
That sort of regulation is necessary and good for the industry in order to maintain minimum standards for the public.
