1 số câu hỏi về Describe a historical building
1. How do people in your country feel about protecting historic buildings?
History is heavily protected as a part of our culture in my country. Even as cities have grown and modernized, there are still remnants that remind us of what came before. We have a lot of temples, pagodas and landmarks which are protected by law, so I would say that we have a profound appreciation for historic buildings as they are tangible reminders of what came before. You know what they say, those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.
|modernize||/ˈmɒd(ə)nʌɪz/||hiện đại hoá|
2. Do you think an area can benefit from having an interesting historic place locally? In what way?
I believe it does. A historic place can be a boon to the local economy by serving as a tourist attraction and generating new job opportunities for the area. It can also help raise the real estate prices to the neighborhood and furthermore, they can also have other benefits like improving the quality of life in an area through investment and give inhabitants a sense of pride and belonging. I live near a temple and I can see how much people appreciate it and visit it constantly.
|boon||/buːn/||thứ thúc đẩy hoặc mang lại lợi ích|
|real estate||/reɪˈɑːl ɛˈsteɪt/||bất động sản|
3. What do you think will happen to historic places or buildings in the future? Why?
I’ve never really thought about this, but I think that marketable places will always be protected, as long as the tourism of these places generates a revenue, they will be protected and advertised. There are however many buildings and places that do not boast enough fame and so do not draw as much attention. With the growth of cities, those kinds of places are in peril of being torn down for new developments.
|Marketable||/ˈmɑːkɪtəb(ə)l/||có giá trị thương mại|
4. How were you taught history when you were at school?
In a word, it was boring. It was a lot of studying out of books to try and learn of the significance of events in the past of my country and of the world in general. I feel like teachers tried to make the best of what resources they had. They would plan school trips to landmarks to try and make the class more interactive and engaging, which I’ll admit worked a lot better on me than books. It was more inspiring to be able to see the places where events had happened and feel the magnitude of it all.
|make the best of||/meɪk ðə bɛst ɒv/||tận dụng tối đa|
|magnitude||/ˈmaɡnɪtjuːd/||tầm quan trọng|
5. Are there other ways people can learn about history, apart from at school? How?
As I mentioned before I think books are not the best way to make people connect to history. Off the top of my head, I would say travel is the best way to learn about the history of our world. Of course not everyone has the funds to just get out there and jump on a plane, so I would think television is also a good way to learn about history. We have so many options nowadays from where to learn, like Discovery Channel or National Geographic for example. They offer well produced documentaries that can entertain and inform people at the same time.
|Documentary||/dɒkjʊˈmɛnt(ə)ri/||phim tài liệu|
6. Do you think history will still be a school subject in the future? Why?
I think it is an essential part of the curriculum in school. History is being generated every moment and so we will never really run out of things to teach. To stop learning about history would mean the collapse of our society. It is fundamental to our development as a collective and I sincerely believe that we cannot build a great future without understanding how the past shapes and molds it. That is why I believe that history will remain a central subject at school no matter how much time passes
|Collapse||/kəˈlaps/||sự sụp đổ|

Bài mẫu Describe a historical building
Describe an interesting historic place.
You should say:
- what it iswhere it is located
- what you can see there now
- and explain why this place is interesting.
I would like to talk about The Lost City of the Incas, Machu Picchu, which is one of new seven wonders of the world. It is located in the Cusco region of Peru in South America. It is composed of the remaining ruins of a city that lies at the top of a mountain, which is only accessible by trekking through the mountains for four days or by taking a train. It used to be an important cultural center for the Inca civilization that had to be abandoned when the Spanish invaded the region. It’s an astonishing piece of architecture built on a 400 feet cliff.
The rocks used to construct the walls of the city were extremely heavy and they were pushed up the mountain or chiseled from the side of the mountain itself by the Incas. Another interesting fact about the construction is the technique used involved making perfectly shaped stones so that no mortar would be needed to fit them together. The city is made up of over 150 buildings which include temples, sanctuaries and housing.
There are also over 100 flights of stairs, most of which are carved from a single slab of stone. It’s very hard to describe the majesty of the place, there is just something so inspiring about the mystery that surrounds it and how it was abandoned. Unfortunately, there are concerns over the growing number of tourists which have led to limitations on how many people can enter the site so that it can be better preserved for future generations.

I’d like to talk about an old church here in this city that was constructed in the second half of the 19th century. It’s Notre-Dame Cathedral, a very famous building as a tourist attraction apart from being a religious site for Catholics.
As far as I know, the cathedral was built by the French during the period of colonialism , so it’s been in existence for nearly a century and a half now. Today you can still see its bright-red bricks on the outside, and the architecture is French, of course, sort of Gothic architecture , I think. The main cathedral has 2 very tall bell towers on its left and right, probably reaching 60 metres or so.
Inside the cathedral is a solemn hall for religious ceremonies.
I pass by the cathedral on my way to work every day, but, being a non-Catholic, I’ve actually visited it only a couple of times. I often see tourists and local people get together there at the garden right in front of the cathedral where there’s a Virgin Mary statue , and sometimes couples who are gonna get married get there to have their photographs taken cuz the view is so beautiful and reflects sort of Western style. So I must say that I’m proud my city has such a well-known church
- Notre-Dame Cathedral : nhà thờ Đức Bà
- Tourist attraction : điểm nổi bật du khách
- Colonialism : (thời kỳ) thuộc địa
- To be in existence : còn đó
- Gothic architecture : kiến trúc Gô-tích
- Bell tower : tháp chuông
- Solemn (adj.): nghiêm trang
- Virgin Mary statue : tượng Đức Mẹ đồng trinh
