Ielts Speaking Model: A Crowded Place - Part 2

Updated on June 14, 2013


Ielts Speaking Model: A Crowded Place - Part 2

IELTS(International English Language Testing System) is the world's leading test of English for higher education, immigration and employment. Below is a sample question and model answer for the topic ‘A Crowded City’

Describe a time you went to a crowded place.
You should say:
when you went there
what the place was
what you did there
and explain why you went there/ how you felt about the crowded place.

As you may know China has the most population in the world, so there is obviously a multitude of crowded places. The place I would like to describe is a place I often go to, a shopping centre called Tianyi Square. I remember a few months ago, just before the spring festival I received a text message from them saying that there will be a discount sale on Valentines Day, so of course I went.

When I got there I could hardly believe my eyes, there was literally a sea of people. My personal space was often invaded and I even had to push and shove to get past people. It was like a war zone, I even saw 2 middle aged women fighting over the last dress and in the end they ripped the dress in half. I thought that only happened on TV.

It took me about 20 minutes to find a dress I liked and after that I decided to just buy it and quickly get out of there. However the wait time for the queue to pay for clothes took around 1 hour. The cashiers were working as fast as they could yet there were just too many people and it was just too chaotic.

After this experience I have decided to never go to a sale like that again. I would seriously rather pay a little more so that I don't have to be in a crowd like that.
