What kind of place is your hometown?
When it comes to my hometown, I would say that the place where I live is located in the southwest of Hai Duong province. It’s a small town with a population of around 150 000 inhabitants. There are large paddy fields and rich pastures, so life there is so laid back, pared down and serene.
2. What are the most interesting things to do there?
Let me see… well, there are loads of interesting activities to do there, such as flying a kite in vast meadows. This is a favourite activity of the children in my hometown. I would strongly recommend going fishing. I think it is hard to do this in cities. Fishing will help help you know the sense of feeling when you catch a fish. It’s really exciting.
3. What kind of job do people do there?
Most people in my hometown work in agriculture and industry, such as farmer, workers. Some people are teachers or grocers.
4. Would you say it is a good or bad place to live?
Personally, I think it is a great place for those who love nature and peace. Although there are some disadvantages, such as the rate of unemployment, the poor facilities or things like that, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. Because I have a lot of unforgettable memories of this place.
5. How do you travel around your hometown?
Well, a bicycle is my best choice. I choose a bike to travel around my hometown instead of a motorcycle because I think cycling is a fantastic way to stay in shape. In addition, it also helps me to blow off some steam after a hard working day.
6. Would you prefer to live in a bigger or smaller place?
It depends on my age. When I’m in my adolescence, I would like to live in a city because I will have a chance to access to modern equipment and develop my career. But when I get older, I’d like to live in a rural area. I think it is an appropriate period to rest and enjoy peace.
