IELTS CUE CARD A new public facility in your hometown

Sample Answer

Cities are very versatile, both, by the nature of their residents and the nature of the establishments they hold. They are also very volatile, what stands today might be crushed tomorrow. I have a rather melancholic approach to new business. Because, sure it’s a new beginning, but it is also the end of another.

Three days ago, I called my mum to ask how everything is going. We talked a bit and caught up with each other. It was then that she told me that a new public library had been opened in what used to be an old abandoned shopping mall. That had me intrigued. That shopping mall had been the first of many in my hometown to be built and abandoned, the fact that the municipality had taken note of this issue and taken steps to rectify it spoke volumes.

I can still clearly remember that mall when it first opened, with streamers and balloons everywhere, it had been a hub of life. For that to have been converted into a modern library, it kind of blew my mind. I mean don’t get me wrong, I like public libraries as much as the next bookworm, but for something so vibrant and loud to have changed into something so modern and quiet; it gave me a real pause. I did feel conflicted at this news, on one hand I wanted the past of the neon lights back, even though I knew that would never be possible. And on the other hand, I couldn’t wait to explore that brand new 3 story monument bestowed with knowledge.

In the end, the excitement for the future won out over my longing for the past and I promised my mother I would come by next month to have a look. She tells me the library is done up in glass, it has lots of terraces with green plants. There are cushion chairs just how I like them. Certainly, I cannot wait to visit now.
