Bài nói mẫu, câu trả lời mẫu Ielts Speaking part 2 và 3 topic A change that would improve your local area (band 8.0 – 9.0)
Well, I can see so many areas that still have rooms for improvement in my neighborhood. However, children come first, so I’d prefer a spacious playground for them above all else.
To begin with, I’m currently living in one of the busiest commercial districts of Hanoi, which is mainly made up of concrete houses and office buildings. Public facilities are litmited to a hospital, a little lake and tiny pavements curving around its shore. There is quite a great number of kids in our neighborhood and they used to gather and play in the front yard of a nearby pagoda. Unfortunately, recent regulations have banned noisy team activities such as football or badminton in religious sites. They are left with no choice other than playing on the lanes in front of their houses.
Obviously, children need to play and to have fun outdoors right? But seriously, how can we let them play in the streets that motocycles frequently pass? Even with parents paying close attention, they are still at risk of becoming victims of a severe accident or unconsciously causing one. Also, when playing in such places, kids will definitely not be able to enjoy the game as much as they should due to constant worry about coming traffic.
For these reasons, I think local authority should put a playground at the top of their agenda. I’m not sure how it can become a reality but I can imagine they must sacrifice some other public space. This is not going to be a walk in the park but I believe children’s well-being and satefy should be given priority.
