Here’s the model answer to last week’s IELTS Speaking Part 2 question.
I would like to talk about the Sri Lankan town of Galle. It was a town built by the Dutch several hundred years ago and retains the Dutch style of architecture. The streets are quaint and narrow with shops on either side selling a variety of tokens for tourists. The Galle fort is, now, on my list of magnificent historic sites.
However, the most impressive historic place I have visited is the Palace of Versailles in Paris. Having been the erstwhile seat of the French royals, it is a splendid sight showcasing beauty and opulence together.
It was during my holiday to Paris that I managed to visit the Palace and many other famous sights such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Museum. It was a lovely holiday and Paris is indeed as beautiful as everyone says.
