Sample Answers
Do you prefer public transportation or private transportation?

Sample Answer 1
I prefer private transportation, as it give me more control over when I come and go. When I used to take the bus, I spent quite a bit of time waiting, and it was crowded with other people.

What’s the most popular means of transportation in your hometown?

Sample Answer 1
Most people drive a car or ride a scooter. Some people also take the bus, or take the local train to other cities. I took the bus when I was a high school student, but now I ride my scooter.

Is it easy to catch a bus in your country?

Sample Answer 1
It’s not too difficult, but it could be for someone not from around here. I did it every day when I was growing up, so I understand how to catch the bus quite well.

Is driving to work popular in your country?

Sample Answer 1
There are many people who drive cars and ride scooters to work, but most commuters use the train or bus instead. The road can get crowded in rush-hour traffic.

Yes, I love listening to music and browsing the internet at home. It’s so relaxing, I always lose track of time.
