1. How do you like Geography?

Sample 1: I don’t like geography. The geographical terms are quite abstract and hard to understand. It is a real pain in the neck.

Sample 2: To me, this subject is like an eye-opener.
It just explains a lot of mysterious phenomenons in this world like how the icebergs are formed, where the water comes from, and how the latitude and landform affect the local climate.

2. Do you think Geography is useful?

Sample 1: I don’t know what people think about it, but geography is not my thing. It’s kind of boring, all about geographical nouns, and names of rail routes. I rarely use geographical knowledge in my everyday life.

While, people around me believed that learning geography helps them know much more about the world.

Sample 2: Absolutely! Geography is incredibly useful in many ways. It is indispensable in daily life.

For instance, we all need some basic concepts of direction to navigate through different places. It also plays a vital role in urban planning.

Moreover, learning geography opens one’s mind and helps us see a more diversified planet.

3. Have you ever studied geography at school?

Sample 1: I had a class called Geography back in high school, which involved many different areas, and memorizing names of places. But I was completely uninterested in it.

Sample 2: Well, geography was a compulsory subject at my primary school, so I think I started to learn it in Grade 2. I have learned both national geography and world geography. I just remember that at that time there were a great deal of names to memorise, the mountains, the rivers,… etc, not a pleasant experience for me.

Sample 3: Of course. it was a compulsory course back in high school. We had to rack our brains to memorize the names of the capitals. But the cultural part was really engaging for me, and it offers an avenue to broaden my horizon.

4. Do you want to be a Geography teacher?

Sample 1: Being a geographical teacher means that I need to have excellent knowledge of the subject, help students learn about the Earth and its features and develop lesson plans so I can present lessons to my students in an engaging manner.
This job is just too hard for me, so of course, I don’t want to be a geography teacher.

5. Did you study Geography at school?

Sample 1: Yes, I did study geography at school, and it used to be one of my favorite subjects.
We can never underestimate the value of Geography as it gives us insights into our world’s landscapes, climates, and cultures and helps us understand our planet better.

5. Do you like geography?

Sample 1: Yeah, I love geography because it gives me the chance to have a look at the places I’ve never been to. It’s amazing. And this subject also explains how different islands and volcanoes form and things like that. It has solved tons of mysteries, which is really like an eye-opener.

Sample 2: Nope, geography is just not my thing. I find it boring because it is an isolated subject. But when I travel to a new place, I sometimes feel the importance of knowing a bit geography.

Sample 3: Well, definitely. I was really interested in maps as a child And when I started to have geography classes, they acted as a magnet for me. I like geography because it takes such an interdisciplinary approach to look at space and place.

Sample 4: That’s a tricky one to answer, I’d have to say yes and no.

As much as I find the world captivating and exciting, I can’t say that studying rocks and landforms gets me going. Don’t get me wrong, I love travelling and I’m often awestruck by the sheer scale of the imposing mountain ranges where I go hiking.

But these days, there are so many potential interests and hobbies vying for your attention, one has to be quite discerning with their time.

Otherwise, you’ll fall down the rabbit hole of novelties and starting new pursuits, without ever mastering any of them.

So, while I do appreciate the landscape around me at face value, I don’t spend my time learning about how the landscape came to be, or how the geography of the area might change in the future.

7. Are you good at reading a map?

Sample 1: I’m skillful in reading the paper map. It’s because I’m awful at directions and reading the map is really doing my head in. But I should say, the navigation app in the smartphone is my savior. You know, it shows my starting point, the route and even the arrival time, so it helps me to find the places everywhere I go.

Sample 2: You bet. When I was a kid, I would read a map and see the buildings and streets in my mind’s eye. But now this skill would not come in handy coz you can rely on the navigation apps.

8. Would you visit a country because of its geographical location?

Sample 1: Yeah, I’m always curious about the places I’m not very familiar with and the special geographical location makes it more mysterious. And Egypt must be the one. The desert there is so impressive. And apart from that, if I go to the country near the sea like Thailand, then I just have the chance to taste the local delicacy.

Sample 2: Well, it’s always on my bucket list to visit Norway. I like reading the magazine of national geography. And I once came across some photos of the fjord. It is a long, narrow inlet created by a glacier. I was blown away by its uniqueness and beauty.

Sample 3: Actually, the other day while I was doing the IELTS reading practice, I happened to read an article about geoglyphs in England, and it did arouse my interest in these places. These geoglyphs have been there for more than 3000 years, very amazing, I would like to have a look at them myself.
