Sample Answers
Why do some people prefer to travel abroad rather than travel in their own country?

Sample Answer 1
I think some people prefer to travel abroad instead of in their home country because they want to experience as many new things as possible in a short time, or because they are curious about another culture. Take me for example. Since I’ve already traveled around my home country extensively, I only want to go abroad on vacation and see places, foods, and landmarks that are new to me. Another example of why people travel is that people become fascinated by learning about other languages and and cultures, like speaking Spanish in Spain, and want to experience them for real. So, those are some reasons why people go abroad.


Do you think traveling to another country can change the way that people think?

Sample Answer 1
Yes, I think that for open minded people like me and my friends, traveling abroad can really change our way of thinking. If you visit a country that has a culture very different from your own, you will experience a new way of life, which will alter your perspective. For example, if you’re from Asia, visiting a European country will give you a whole new look at a different history and culture that you’ve only seen in pictures before. Traveling also gives you the chance to meet new friends, who can further influence your thinking. Going abroad can change your perspective and open up new doors.


Do you think it’s safer to travel today than in the past?

Sample Answer 1
Yes, it has become safer to travel in almost every way, including travel by land, sea, and air. In the past, technology was not as well-developed, which led to more potential accidents and problems while traveling. Take traveling by boat for example. Today, most people enjoy going on cruises and ships without worrying about running out of food or water, or having some disaster happen, like Titanic. But in the past, all of those things were real dangers while on a ship going overseas. So, that’s why traveling is safer today than it used to be.


Let’s move on to tourism. What are some famous tourist spots in your country?

Sample Answer 1
Well, India is large, diverse place, so in each of its regions you’ll find a few different famous tourist destinations. In the north, there are some Mughal Empire landmarks, such as Delhi’s Red Fort, which is a famous historical site, as well as the huge Jama Masjid mosque. I would say that the most famous tourist destination in the whole country is probably the Taj Mahal, which is located in Agra. Everyone has at least seen a picture of the large, white structure and its surrounding pools. It’s quite iconic.


What are the positive impacts of tourism in your country?

Sample Answer 1
There are a few benefits of tourism for us. Namely, it brings in money for local people and it also allows foreign visitors to learn more about our culture and history. And these days, Indian food is popular all around the world, so I can find some of my favorite foods even when I leave the country. Many visitors to India come to learn about practices such as yoga and meditation, so I think it’s definitely a positive thing when people can spread these ideas around the world once they return home.


What are the negative impacts of tourism in your country?

Sample Answer 1
I’m not sure about the details of this, but there are a few drawbacks of tourism that I have personally witnessed. Recently, the biggest one is probably damage to the natural environment. Tourists are often careless about where they toss their rubbish and do not pay enough attention to where they step or what they are doing while they’re abroad. For example, they may accidentally cause a forest fire in a dry region by throwing their cigarette butts out into the grass. Another way that tourists can harm the country is by causing people to mass produce souvenir items instead of local goods. When this happens, the quality and prices of local things tend to become worse.


What can you say about the future of the tourism industry in your country?

Sample Answer 1
I think that the future of tourism is bright, as transportation methods are improving to keep up with increasing demands of tourists to travel around the country. Another positive aspect about tourism in the future is that more people in my country can speak English these days, which allows them to communicate more effectively with tourists. Finally, tourists can continue to learn about and appreciate our food, culture, and history, and by doing so our reputation will rise throughout the world.
