Sample 1


Being a city dweller, I have visited numerous crowded places, one of which is unique and worth mentioning.

Where is it?

It is a street market in the middle of the city, beautiful Chandigarh.

When you went there? And With whom you went there?

Last month my friend shifted from Delhi to Chandigarh and wanted to buy some household items like crockery and curtains. Someone suggested we visit the street market in Sector 22, Chandigarh, to buy the products we were looking for.

During that time, I went there, and it was crowded that day with people from all walks of life. Due to immense footfall passing through the aisle was a daunting task

And explain how you felt about being there.

Initially, I was apprehensive about the availability of products in that market; however, to my surprise, we got everything we were looking for.

The best part was that though there were thousands of customers and the market was jampacked, the shopkeepers were in no hurry, and they attended to the customers patiently.

Whatever my friend needed he got there and when we compared the prices we realized that we got a good deal on most of the products.

I further deciphered the real reasons behind so much crowd at that place: the availability of most goods and services in one market.

Finally, when we finished shopping, we ate mouth-watering delicacies from the street vendors in that market. The delicious food they served pampered my appetite.

Whenever I need something for my home, I visit the Sector 22 market rather than going to some showroom or mall.


Here are some examples of follow-up questions that the examiner might ask during your speaking part 3 related to the cue card “Describe a Crowded Place You Have Visited”.

1. Is there a tranquil place?

There are not many quiet places in the urban area though if one visits the countryside, particularly the hilly areas, one can discover many places with tranquility. As far as cities are concerned, the only site which offers a quiet environment is a library, where those who know very well that creating noise is prohibited.

2. Do you like to go to places with many people?

Although I am a social butterfly, I don’t particularly appreciate visiting places with many people. It is because I feel irritated in the presence of a crowd, so if there are 15-20 people, I am comfortable; however, if the number exceeds, I like to leave that place.

3. Do you like places with large spaces?

Yes, going to places with large spaces appears to me because, at such sites, you have the freedom to walk your business. On the other hand, at a conjured place, you need to remain vigilant while moving here and there. Moreover, in large areas, there is enough air at our disposal to breathe.

4. What are the places which attract many people in your country?

People in my country visit two places most often. Firstly they visit religious sites to get positive vibes and to remain humble. They also visit shopping malls to spend leisure time with pomp and show.

5. What do you think is the most essential thing of a public event?

In the modern era, the most significant thing in a public event is the safety of the people because, in a vast crowd, things can quickly go awry and lead to casualties. Organizers should have sufficient arrangements to handle unforeseen contingencies like short circuits and fires. Another engagement that organizers should pay heed to would-be public conveniences like clean drinking water, urinals, etcetera.

6. What types of problems can be better solved by group work?

Group work is the best way to handle all conflicts adroitly. When diverse minds work in unison on solving an issue, it leads to numerous ideas at our disposal, which aid in deciphering the concern much quicker and creatively.

7. What kind of places do people want to go to when they want to be alone?

When people wish to be alone, they love places with profound solitude. You can find such areas at faraway beaches and gardens where only a few people come. Moreover, people visit specific sites at odd hours, like early mornings and late evenings, to spend time with themselves. Apart from this, some people go on solo trips to places of interest. Lastly, a few individuals love to spend time in the comfort of their homes when they love to be alone.

8. Why is it sometimes necessary for people to be alone?

In today;’s era, fierce competition ja become an integral part of our lives, and stress has grown exponentially. In such a scenario, spending time alone is a charm because it allows you to understand yourself well. Moreover, it empowers you to think beyond the conventional domain to lead your life toward an impressive growth trajectory.
