No person in this world can every be too busy to miss a physical exercise. With more and more people getting busier these days, the importance of body in some ways get over looked. However, there have been many initiatives being made to ensure that people do a certain kind of exercise to maintain a healthy life. This time let us have a look at some of the questions related to walking that can be asked in IELTS speaking section.
Do you like to walk?
Yes, I do prefer having long walks with my friends and even sometimes alone, when I need to clear my thoughts. I think walking in so many sense help you to bond with the other person. Because, it is that time when we are slow and really talking to the other person. There is no rush, no deadline to meet, nothing on mind apart from what is coming out from heart. And, then times when I walk alone, it does help me get clarity on life.
Would you say your city is a good place for walking?
I live in an eastern state of India, in Bhubaneswar and surely it is a good place to walk. With not much hustle and bustle of big city, you can actually just go out without any thoughts on getting hit by a car and have the street food.
Do people in your country walk a lot?
Most of the people in my country do go out for an evening walk. With IT becoming such a major market and the youth shifting towards it, not much of youth goes out for walk, but I think they tend to do some other form of exercise for that matter. But, apart from them, you can find women and children, going out for walk to catch up with their friends.
Do you think walking is important?
Definitely yes. Walking is surely an important part of our lives because it helps us in so many ways. You not only get positive results in terms of physical health but it helps improve your mental health, hence giving you the entire advantage. Also, with walking people become much more aware of the surroundings they live in, which is surely an important thing.
Do you think walking in the countryside is better than walking in the city?
Surely yes. On the countryside, you are more likely to find greenery, free roads, more parks, but with cities, there are certain issues. Like, most of them have got big building so while walking there is not much that you can capture about nature. Also, with cities, there are issues like pollution, which do affect us in many ways.
What could be done to improve the experience of walking in cities?
I think having bigger and better parks can be one thing. So, a park where you can find lot of trees and garden and may be a lake could give the feel of the country side. It is not necessary that these parks are built in every locality but may be more frequently. So, that people can come here and relax and feel good about life
Do you like walking on your own or with others?
It depends. So, if I am really messed up with my life and want some clarity, I prefer walking alone. But, in times when I am tired and feel emaciated, I prefer going out on a walk with my friends. It helps me to relax a bit and then carry on with life. So, for me both go fine, my mental state is what makes the difference.
