Today you’ll get amazing speaking vocabulary to describe your hometown or city for your next IELTS Exam.

We had a question from a 3 Keys student in our Facebook group:

Could you suggest a fancy way of saying ‘there is a lot of interesting things to do’ in someplace?

The vocabulary today is super useful for Speaking Part 1 and Part 2.
