Description Phrases – Cities

Staying at a hotel source: www.morguefile.com

My students recently asked me which phrases are the best ones to use to ask what something looks like and what  are the simplest possible answers:

***Book a 50 min Skype lesson to practise ONLY what you need to improve your English and feel more confident when speaking.***

what + to be + something + like?

  • Where do you live ?
  • What are the streets like in… ?
  • What are the buildings like ?
  • What is the public transport like ?
  • What are the people like ?

 

Then we used description phrases about cities in our answers:

  • I live in New York.
  • The streets are crowded / noisy / dirty / clean / wide / narrow…
  • The buildings are tall / small / impressive / magnificient / old / derilict…
  • The public transport in NY is convenient / efficient / cheap / expensive…
  • The people in NY are agressive / unfriendly / rude / impatient …
