For easier understanding, I have divided this IELTS Speaking Cue Card into three parts ➡️ Introduction, Questions, and Conclusion.


I am an avid traveller and since all these years I’ve been travelling to numerous places around the world.

Where is it?

But today I’d take this opportunity to talk about the city of Toronto in Canada, which is my dream place to live.

How you know about this place?

I know Toronto because my brother is living there and he always talk to me about how happy the life is in The Great White North (i.e Canada). I always wondered whether there would be any peaceful place on earth that exist today? But thanks to him, now I know one such place where I want to be.

What it is famous for?

Toronto is a marvellous place. It is the capital city of Canada’s largest populated province i.e Ontario. It has soaring skyscrapers, all dwarfed by the iconic, free-standing CN Tower. Toronto also has number of popular green spaces, from the orderly oval of Queen’s Park to 400-acre High Park and its trails, sports facilities and national parks. For an art freak like me, Toronto has world famous Art Galleries and moreover there is no better joy in this world than a day’s trip to Niagara falls.

Why you would like to live there?

Well, there are number of reasons that prompt me to start a new chapter of my life in the city of Toronto. Firstly, Toronto is one of the world’s most multicultural cities, famous for arts, festivals and weather patterns. Like I said, it’s a pleasure to be there. Secondly, I am a foodie and Toronto is heaven for foodies. More than 6,000 restaurants across the city are serving up delicious food from all over the world. So, I find no place else that serves my greater interest as good as Toronto.


Life is a one-time affair and I want to make the best use of it by migrating to Toronto and spending my future days ahead. ALSO READ: Describe a city that you think is very interesting IELTS Cue Card

Follow ups

Following are the probable set of IELTS Speaking Part-3 follow up questions that could be asked in Describe a city/town where you would like to live in the future cue card:

➡️ Why do more & more people live in the city?

I think the cities are more attractive due to the better infrastructure they offer. They have densely populated neighbourhoods, high-paying jobs, good education and strong health services. That’s why there is large mobility of people towards living in the city.

➡️ What is the difference between young and old generation when choosing a place to live?

Well, the older people have affection for strong family bonds which they usually found in their native places whereas the younger generation prioritise jobs, education, source of entertainment above others which are largely be present in the cities. So, their attitude is the deciding factor when choosing a place to live.

➡️ What are some of the factors that attract people to settle down in certain regions?

As I said, different people have different attitudes about how they see a place. For some, life in a metropolitan city with malls, cinemas, clubs etc. is the most important factor to get settled while for others, closeness to nature, peace and tranquility of the area decides where they want to settle.
