Questions and Answers

1. Which do you think makes louder noise, in cities or in the countryside?

Sample 1: Noise in the cities is probably louder coz there are more people living and working in the regions. That causes the hustle and bustle of those places. And it also explains why young people today long for the idyllic and peaceful life in the countryside after retirement.

2. What noise do we have in cities?

Sample 1: The first kind of noise I can think of is the sound from construction sites, you know, like from the diggers and bulldozers. What’s even worse, some outdoor commercial performances can drive people nuts because of the deafening music.

3. What kind of noise do cars make?

Sample 1: When drivers start the engine, there’s gonna be the noise. And things get worse when they honk their horns on the street, which can be really annoying. In some cases, like if a driver hits the brake, the screech just freaks people out.
