Talking About Your Hometown – Spoken English Lesson

Talking About Your Hometown – Spoken English Lesson

Hi, I’m Gina. Welcome to Oxford Online English! Where do you live?
Do you live in a small town, a big city, or a remote village? What’s it like? In this lesson, you can learn how to describe
your hometown in English. Let’s start with some basic English vocabulary
You can use to talk about your hometown. Part one: introducing your hometown. Let’s start with a simple sentence. “I live in a ________.” What could you say? You could say something like: “I live in a city”; “I live in a town”; “I live in a village.” That’s a good start, but it’s very basic.
Let’s add a bit more detail. What’s it called? How big is it? “I live in Paris. It’s the capital city”;
“I live in Shanghai. It’s a huge city”; “I live in a small town. It’s called Banbury”;
“I live in Manarola, which is a tiny village by the sea.” Better! You should always try to add more details
when you speak. What about you? Where do you live?
Can you make one or two sentences like this? Pause the video and practice! Okay, let’s move on.
We need to make ouranswers more detailed and interesting. Part two: adding background and details. Think about these questions: What’s your hometown famous for?
Can you think of some words you could use to describe your hometown? How long have you lived there? Add these ideas to your answer to make it
longer and more detailed. For example: “I live in Paris, the capital city.
It’s famous for its landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral or the Louvre.
It’s also well-known for its food, of course!” “I live in Shanghai. It’s a huge, bustling, international city. People from all over the world live and work there.” “I live in a small town called Banbury.
I’ve been living there for about five years, since I finished university. It’s a pretty sleepy place, to be honest.” Let’s look at some useful vocabulary from these examples: Which you can use when you speak. We said: Paris is famous for its landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower. Landmarks are famous places or buildings,
like the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Sydney Opera House or Christ the Redeemer in Rio. Does your hometown have any famous landmarks?
What are they called in English? Next, we said: “Shanghai is a bustling city.” Do you know what this means? It means there’s a lot of activity. There are lots of people, lots of traffic, lots of life and energy. Is your city bustling or sleepy?
If a town is sleepy there’s not much activity and things are quiet. What about your hometown.
Look at our questions again: What’s your hometown famous for?
Can you think of some words you could use to describe your hometown? How long have you lived there? What could you say about your hometown?
Pause the video and try to make 2-3 sentences. Okay? Let’s look at our next point. Part three: Saying what you like about your hometown. What’s good about your hometown?
What do you like most about it? Different people like different things in a city or town. Let’s look at some example sentences which express positive feelings: “I love living in Paris. It’s got such a rich culture and there’s always something interesting going on.” “Shanghai’s a great place to live.
It’s a real 24-hour city and you can meet people from all over the world.” “Living in Banbury suits me.
It’s a quiet place and it’s small enough that you can get to know your neighbours and have a sense of community.” What’s important for you? Do you want to live somewhere with a rich culture and a sense of history, or do you prefer more modern, international cities? Would you rather live somewhere larger and more energetic, or somewhere smaller and more peaceful? Think about these ideas. You’ll need them in a minute! Let’s look at some useful language from our examples: “I love living in _______”; “_______’s a great place to live”; “Living in _______ suits me.” Of course, you can change these to say what you want to: “I quite like living in _______”; “I really like living in ________”; “I suppose I don’t mind living in ________.” We also saw some useful phrases in our examples: “It’s got such a rich culture”;
“There’s always something interesting going on”; “It’s a real 24-hour city”;
“You can meet people from all over the world”; “It’s small enough that you can get to know your neighbours” and have a sense of community What does that last phrase mean? If you have a sense of community, it means people know their neighbours
and feel like they belong to a wider community. Smaller towns and villages often have a better sense of community, perhaps because people have more time to talk to each other and do things together. What about your hometown?
Could you use any of these phrases to describe where you live? Next, what if you don’t like something about your hometown? Part four: saying what you dislike. Let’s look at some examples which express
negative feelings: “Paris is great, but the cost of living is really high.
That can be quite stressful because you’re always thinking about money
and how to make ends meet.” “Shanghai’s an exciting place,
but it’s really crowded and it can be exhausting to live there. Air quality can be an issue, particularly in the summer.” “Banbury’s nice, but sometimes I find it a bit boring. There’s not much nightlife and sometimes it feels a bit cut off from the wider world.” When talking about things you don’t like
about your hometown. You can use adjectives like, ‘stressful’, ‘crowded’, ‘boring’. You can make your answer more interesting by using phrases. We saw some useful ones in our examples: “The cost of living is really high”; ” You’re always thinking about how to make ends meet.” Meaning: you’re always thinking about how to pay for your basic living costs. “It can be exhausting to live there”; “Air quality can be an issue”; ” There’s not much nightlife”; ” It feels a bit cut off from the wider world.” Meaning: you feel like you’re far away from people, culture and activity. Could you use any of these phrases to describe
your hometown? Remember that you can also change the phrases
to fit your ideas. For example: “Traffic can be an issue”; “There’s not much for young people to do”; “It can be very stressful to live here.” Okay, what about you? Try to make 3-4 sentences.
Say what you like and dislike about your hometown. Use the key words and phrases from parts 3 and 4. Go on, pause the video and practice! Okay? We have one more thing to do: Part five: describing how it’s changed over time. What was your hometown like ten, twenty or fifty years ago? How has it changed? How has it changed over time? Some places change very fast; other places never seem to change at all! Talking about changes can add interesting and useful information to your description. Let’s look: “Paris has changed a lot in the last twenty years. It’s much more international and much more expensive than it used to be. However, the soul of the city is still there. Paris will always be Paris!” “Shanghai is almost unrecognisable compared to twenty or thirty years ago. The city has expanded so much, both physically and economically. It’s amazing when you see old photos of the city; things are so different now!” “Banbury hasn’t changed much as a place in the last twenty years, but the mix of people is a bit different nowadays. The population used to be older and mostly English, whereas now there are more young people living here,
including many people from other parts of Europe.” Again, these examples contain a lot of useful
language you can use to talk about your hometown. For example: “________ has changed a lot in the last twenty years”; “________ is almost unrecognisable compared to twenty years ago” ; ________ hasn’t changed much as a place in the last twenty years.” Which of these sentences is true for your hometown? Can you add details to explain why? For example: “It’s much more ________ than it used to
be”; “The city has ________ so much”; ” The________ is a bit different nowadays.” Now, you’ve seen a lot of useful language
you can use to talk about your hometown. Let’s put everything together and practice making a longer answer. Part six: review. Do you remember all the points we talked about?
We covered: Introducing your hometown, adding background and details, talking about what you like or dislike about it, talking about how it’s changed over time. Follow these points and you can make a long,
detailed answer to describe your hometown. For example: “I live in St Petersburg. It’s the second largest city in Russia, and it’s a beautiful place to live. I’ve lived here all my life
and I can’t imagine living anywhere else! It has such a rich culture, I think partly because the city’s history is a mix of European and Russian influences. I think that’s why I like it here—it’s a unique place. Traffic can be an issue in the city centre, but public transport is very good. The city hasn’t changed much in the last twenty years, although there are certainly more and more tourists these days!” Could you make an answer like this? Let’s do one more example first. I’ll tell you about my hometown: “I’m from Denver, the capital of Colorado. It’s near the Rocky Mountains, so the surrounding area is quite beautiful. I’ve been living here for about three years. I really like Denver because it’s a young city with lots of energy, but if you need a break it’s easy to drive to the mountains and find a quiet place to relax. The only real disadvantage is that winter can be seriously cold! Denver’s changed quite a lot in the last twenty years Many people are moving here to work. Unfortunately, the cost of living has also gone up quite a lot.” Okay, now it’s definitely your turn! Talk
about your hometown. Make a longer answer like these ones. If you want, you can post your answer in the
video comments. We’ll give you feedback on your English. That’s the end of the lesson. I hope you
learned something useful! If you want to see more of our free English

  2. I live in Oak Bay, one of the municipalities here in Vancouver Island. I would say it is a quiet town, and the residents are composed mostly of nice elderly people. I feel safe living in such area, however I find it a sleepy environment for a young adult like me. Luckily, it is about 20 minutes drive to Victoria City, the capital city of British Columbia.

  3. I live in Baqubah , it is the capital city of Diyala province which is a governorate in the eastern Iraq . It is huge city divided via Diyala river to east and west Baqubah . It is well known as the city of citrus fruit or the orange city . As I am proud to live in it because of the sense of community , it’s people very social and if you come as new to a neighborhood they reception you very friendly and make the dinner as a welcome for you . Baqubah has changed the past twenty years many orchard were scraping and they build building instead of the beautiful tree . nowadays there is always an expected attack from armed troupe and explosion but the Iraqi army and police are trying their best to keep people in confident and peace by doing check point to examine the cars making traffic can be an issue .

  4. I live in India it's really rich in culture nd the people r vry religious nd cultural they love their family a lot although we need to be developed nd we need to eradicate corruption nd narrow minded thinking nd old custom we r growing up vry sharply nd soon we'll get through all these problems nd living cost is quite low it's one of good part of it……. Nd to watch this lesson was worthwhile nd ur voice is melodious too.

It is a bustling city which has many international people live and work here. I think that why i love here, it is a great place. Traffic can be an issue in the city center especially peak hour.

That can be quite stressful because always thinking about money and how to make ends meet. It's really crowded and it can be exhausting to live there. Air quality can be an issue, particularly in the summer.It has become more international and more exciting and much more expensive than it used to be. In the last few years, many international restaurants have opened just around the corner from where I live and I usually dine out them with my friends. I have a lot of international friends who have come to work in HN and we usually meet in the evenings. There are certainly more and more tourists these days. However, the soul of the city is still there. HN will always be HN.

  7. I am Living in a small community called Solrod Beach. It is situated 30 kilometers south of Copenhagen, which is the capital of Denmark. The population is about 23.000 people.

It's so convenient to buy whatever I want without going far. In addition I have a chance to communicate with many people from many different areas. But it's one thing I don't like. Because it's so crowded, pollution and traffic can be issues worth worrying. I have lived here for 19 years and my hometown changed much over time. More and more people come to live and open many stores to buy. The road is much wider than it used to be. In brief, it is more and more modern. I really like my hometown.

    Dalian has changed a lot in the last 20 years. It’s much more convenient than it used be. There are more and more tourists come here.
    Although Dalian is great, the cost of living is a little high. That can be stressful because you are always think about money and how to make ends meet.

  15. I live in a small city called Bien Hoa. I have lived here since I was born. My city is famous for the variety of tropical fruits, you can find durians, grapefruits, mangoes, dragonfruits and so on in every Bien Hoa street or market. What i love about this city the most is the hospitality of local people here. Anyway, traffic congestion seems to be a serious problem in the city every rush hour, i hope the authority could handle this soon in the future.

    for about 20 years, since I went to elementary school. It's famous

    for its landmarks such as University of Indonesia. It's also

    well-known for its train station. Although it is a small city, but

    it has 4 train station on it.

    I quite like living in Depok. It's a strategic place to live ,

    because it has many different kind of transportation to reach my

    office. I can get to my work by bus, train, motorbike or car.

    Living in Depok suits me.

    Depok is nice, but sometimes I find it a bit boring. Traffic can

    be an issue in the city center. That can be quite stressful

    because there are always traffic jam on the weekend.

  18. I live in Dhaka, Dhaka is a capital city in Bangladesh. It's famous for its densely population and traffic jam. It's also famous for its old architectural structure which was built by Mughal Emperor. Old city was the main part of the Dhaka but gradually, the City is constantly expanding. So, Dhaka is big city now. Here is so many planned places, Hatir Zil is one of them. I like to travel by using this place when i need to move Rampura to Kawran bazar or Gulshan. Dhaka is a bustling city but when Eid fastival has come, the city will become a sleepy city. Living in dhaka is so much problematic, Here is traffic jam problem, after raining road become a flooted by rain water, here Dranez system is not so good. SO, sometimes , i feel , living in dhaka suits for me and sometimes, does not suit for me. People come to Dhaka from village for living. If government do not take any steps about this many population , dhaka will become an unfit city for the living.

The landmark 85 Sky Tower and the Love River is also well-known. Besides, the annual Lantern Festival hold alongside the Love River bank which is so amazing event that you have to join it once in your life. I love Kaohsiung for the slow-paced life, kind people and the rich cultures. Although the air quality can be an issue, the local government and scholars are dealing with it constantly. Kaohsiung has changed a lot in the last 10 years. The MRT system was built so that the communication in the city is more convenient and also the bus system has improved which really means a lot for students or people who don’t have their own vehicles.

  30. I can't thinking fast to speaking,describing my country and writing well…because I am thinking at the ward or(sentences) in my language and translate it in english in my mind (sorry about my mistake )please help me and could you answer me.please

  31. I live in Kuravilangadu, a small hilly region which is only 50km far from Kottayam town. My village is so natural and the scenery is overwhelming. It is famous because of our Martha Mariam cathedral. Many pilgrims are passing through our village every day. My home situated nearby the church and we used to visit routinely. Our neighborhood is religiously varied but unity prevails. Nowadays, it's going to be a township. Many infrastructure came around and it begins to accumulate..

  32. I live in São Paulo. It is one of the biggest city in the world. It is known as the city which never sleeps and in my opinion this statement is completely right. Rush hour is really estressful and the public transport has to improve a lot however it is possible to get in lots of places by using Subway. The weather is quite crazy because one day can be really hot and the another one can be quite cold. There are lots of interesting places to visit like Ibirapuera Park. It's a good place to live because people from all Brazil's states come here in order to get job opportunities. In a nutshell, São Paulo is a complicated city to live but has lots of interesting attractions.

  33. I'm from Faisalabad, the biggest industrialist city of Pakistan. I've lived here all my life.I love the city because of its simplest way of lifestyle. It has changed a lot since 1990s. Living here quite thrilling but if you want to take a break you can drive to the northern areas to get some peace. The only real disadvantage is that summer can be seriously scorching and burning. Unfortunately,cost of living has also gone up quite a lot but still we can easily make ends meet

  34. I live in Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand. It is a sleepy city from Monday to Thursday; however, it is a bustling city at Friday night. There are many tourist attractions such as Emerald temple and Wat Pho. Also, it is well known for street food and as you may known, it's listed as the most visited places in 2018.

  35. I live in a small town called Gyál near from the city centre. I been live here since 16 years. I very like living here because quite, peacefully and not crowded. Unfortunately there's not much thing to do, so I need to go to the city centre if I want to do something interesting. The public transport it's good so I can be there about 40 minutes. Gyál not really changed the past 16 years since I live here, but I really enjoy living here and I can't imagine to live somewhere else.

  36. I'm from Lima, the capital city of Peru of around 12 million inhabitants, almost the third part of the country's population. I really love to live here because every day we have many things to do. Some of our landmarks are museums if you like art, where some antique pieces can be seen for anyone. Another landmark is the cathedral of the city and the San Francisco church, where the Catacombs are located. For purchasing attires or things, people can visit different malls around the city. Also, in Lima, we offer delicious food in a variety of restaurants. Peruvian cuisine is well recognized all over the world. The pier of the city is also a romantic place for a walkthrough. In outdoor sports, soccer is the most important game in the country and people follow different teams from Lima and another part of the country, as well.
    But about Lima, I really dislike the way that governments don't pay attention to good conditions on roads. Actually, overpopulation and the rising rate of vehicles become this in a crowded city where drivers try to avoid the road rules all the time and authorities act like blind. it doesn't have sense but it really happens. Some native people behave badly in throwing rubbish on the streets, but others try to change people's point of view in environmental conservation.
    I've been living almost all my life here and of course, I love this city, but as I wrote at the beginning there's is a lot of things to change for better.

  37. I love living in Guangzhou. Because In there, the cost of living is not really high although the big city. And sometimes the traffic can be an issue in all of the city, but public transport such as subway is very good. So, It doesn’t matter. I have just lived here for two years. Now, I still think of there’s a great place to live.

    Thank you for checking my sentence.

  38. Well, I come from Hanoi. It's a capital city of Vietnam. It's absolutely peaceful, maybe even one of the most peaceful cities in Southeast Asian, I guess. It's famous for many place of interest such as Hanoi Old Quarter, French Quarter, Hoan Kiem lake, West lake and so on. It's also well known for its food, of course. I've been living here for about 7 years. I really love Hanoi because the locals are kind of friendly, hospitable and helpful. The only real disadvantage is that the traffic here is totally chaotic, particularly during the rush hour. Hanoi has changed a lot in the last twenty years. It's much more international and much more expensive than it used to be. However, the soul of the city is still there.

    Thanks for making videos! I love you!!!!

  40. I live in a tiny village, called Phong Nha. It is famous for the beautiful mountains scenery and amazing caves, especially Son Doong cave is the largest cave in the world. It is a quiet and peaceful place. I like living there when I retire. Because it has not much activities to do for young people as me. It has a bit changed in the last 20 years. Population has increased so it has more houses, and tourism has developed with more hotels and restaurants, more tourists come. But the soul of the village is still there.

  41. I live in Quang Tri province. It's located in northen Central of Vietnam. You know, Quang Tri was suffered heavy losses from the War World I and II about material and spiritual.Therefore, it has still been poor. I've been living there since I was born, so everything is close to me. I really love living there because it's peaceful place , it's small enough that you can get to know your neighbours and have a sense of community. Moreover, my hometown is famous for plenty of historical monuments such as the ancient citadel of Quang Tri, Hien Luong bridge, Truong Son National cemetery, etc… Besides, there are also pretty beaches where you can enjoy the diversity of outdoor activities for instance swimming, sunbathing. The locals are so kind and friendly. However, sometimes I find it a bit boring because it's not much a nightlife, and I feel cut off from wider world. Beside that, the weather isn't always nice. It rains cats and dogs in the autumn and so hot in the summer. To sum up, i always feel proud of my hometown and i hope you'll have to trip my hometown.

  42. I live in Karachi, it's the capital city. It is a cosmopolitan city, have people from all around the world so it's very interesting to have different cultures of people in our city. It also has a seaport, which is famous for the trade. Although the city is so much old so it also has many historical trademarks like Quad-e-Azam tomb, museum and art galleries. Being an old and crowded city it is also facing many problems regarding air quality and traffic jams. I am living here since my childhood that I born over here. Overall having many problems in Karachi, I like living here because of the mental attachment with the city.

  45. I live in a small town called Canlaon. It is known as the summer capital of Central Visayas and it's home to one of the most active volcanoes in the Philippines, the Mt. Canlaon Volcano. It's a sleepy town to be honest but living there suits me. It is surrounded with picturesque views of rolling hills and mountains and we get fresh supplies of fruits and vegetables daily. What I don't like about my hometown is the lack of job opportunities. Youngsters really need to take-off after high school graduation to study and work in big cities. I did after finishing high school but I came back eventually after college. My parents told me that there's no place like home and they're right!

  46. I live in Abuja. It is the capital of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It is one of the North Central states in the country. It is a relatively big city and the home to famous land marks like the Zuma Rock which is located outskirts the city, the Central Mosque and the Ecumenical Centre. It is also quite known for its favourite Northern snack called the Kilishi. It holds conservative norms and cultures stemming the Northern and Islamic Influence on which the city is founded. I have lived here for more than 12 years and i absolutely love it here because it is not as fast paced as other cities i have visited. Abuja has not changed significantly over the last twenty years although it is becoming more international and more populated. It can be quite a sleepy city on weekends and public holidays.
