  1. What can be an ideal answer for following 3 questions:
    — Is being well organised important for a big city?
    – Don’t you think that extremely well organised cities are somehow boring?
    – How is that related to city planning?

  2. Assuming these questions appear in Part 3 (Discussion) of the speaking test, where the candidate has to speak at length about issues, a good answer would be something along these lines:

    – Is being well organised important for a big city?

    Answer:

    A well organised city has many different aspects that have been thought through and planned well. These would include great infrastructure, the amount of parks and gardens, and their locations, the public transport system, leisure options for residents, neighbourhoods with a smart layout and enjoyable public spaces. All of these areas affect life in the city and the level of satisfaction of residents, and of course the better they are organised, the more livable the city is, so yes, it is important for a city to be well organised.

    How would you respond to Q2, Amit?

    – Don’t you think that extremely well organised cities are somehow boring?
