Describe a place where you are able to relax.
You should say:
Where it is
What it is like
How often you go there
And explain how you feel about this place
The place where I go where I can really relax is the local park. I am lucky enough to live really close to a nice park – in fact, it’s a great park – and it’s free to get in! It’s got a huge lake and a number of wonderful gardens with trees, plants, flowers, and areas for old and young people to do recreational activities. There is also a café and a restaurant in the park, as well as boats on the lake, tennis courts, and a children’s play area. I go there almost every weekend, and although it is a really popular park, there are always quiet areas where you can sit alone on a stone bench or at a little table. During the summer months I go there regularly to read and study and just walk around and clear my head. I feel great when I’m there and I enjoy the fact that there is peace and quiet there, as well as activities that people can do. It’s a fantastic environment to be in – and the park is really well-tended and looked after. It’s an ideal place for individuals like me who want to go alone and get some fresh air and enjoy a natural space, as well as families who want to take their kids out to enjoy the activities available there.
1. What activities do employers organize to help employees relax?
Employers, depending on the company, arrange all sorts of activities for employees. Some are regular activities, and most are at key times of the year, like Spring Festival and other holidays. Excursions, company dinners, gala performances and nights out to KTV are popular company activities in China. On a more weekly or daily basis many companies offer their employees a gym membership or a slot once a week at a local gym near the office. All of these things help to keep employees happy and foster a spirit of teamwork and leisure amongst the employees too.
2. How can students relax?
Students have all sorts of different ways to relax. Campuses often have sports areas for basketball, tennis, ping pong or football. Aside from this some campuses have great cafes and restaurants and bars where students can hang out after their studies, chat with their classmates and generally kick back and relax or let their hair down. Other students might choose to go off campus into the city to clubs, or go shopping in the local malls, or go to the cinema. There are plenty of ways students can relax and enjoy their free time when they are not studying.
3. Do people nowadays have more ways to relax than they did in the past?
Most definitely yes – there are lots of opportunities for young people today than in the past, and as cities have developed in more interesting ways, there are hosts of things that people can do – international restaurants to try, clubs to go to, classes to attend. When I was a child there weren’t so many of these things to do, but now there loads of opportunities, at least in the major cities.
