E: Thank you very much. Let’s move on cue card topic. Here’s the question:
Describe an environmental problem
You should say:
What it is
How long it has existed
How it affects people’s lives
And explain how you think the problem will develop in the future
I’d like you to speak on this topic in 2 minutes. Before that, you have 1 minute to prepare. And here’s some paper and pen for you to make some notes if you wish.
Well, could you please begin.
Well, I’m going to talk about the pollution, one of the most need-to-be-solved problems of the environment in the 20th century.
In my opinion, I suppose that the main reason for the pollution is the overpopulation and a rapid, sprawling industrialization of this city within recent 30 years. It is crystal clear that a large number of populations, especially in cities always cause environmental pollution such as water pollution, air pollution, and sound pollution. The more cars they use, the more energy and natural resources they consume, the more wastages, exhaust fumes and noises they create.
First and foremost, the water pollution is caused by the bloom of industries and factories that have been stand beside the rivers. These factories and industries produce a large number of industrial waste which directly affects the water. As a result, the effect of water pollution is severe, which affect dramatically to human lives. In detail, we can’t live without water, especially for a large number of people rely on the water of the rivers. Using the polluted water, it leads to diseases can become epidemics without the proper control.
The next, air pollution usually happens in the cities with chemical smoke and carbon dioxide. As a consequence, people have to suffer various dangerous diseases including lung cancer, asthma, heart disease etc, which make people dying out.
Last but not least, sound pollution is called as a silent killer that causes lots of serious health problems including hearing and brain cancer. Notably, the sound pollution directly threats the surrounded wildlife as well.
Therefore, if we don’t have right actions in the nick of time, the pollution will be worse with the natural disaster and man-made disaster as well. Moreover, these pollutions will cause the overall environmental contamination – the reason of becoming extinct.
E: Thank you very much.
Let’s move on to discussion topic related to the Weather&Environment
E: Which environmental problems are people most concerned about in your country?
C: Well, my country is a developing country which focuses on export rural products. Therefore, it is a serious problem of slash-and-burn in my country because of the lack of awareness about the environment. Because of this action, there are many severe results happened such as over cultivation, the break of the ecological balance and natural disaster. Seriously, both human and nature are under threat.
E: Do you think large companies and business organizations should be more environmentally friendly? Why? How?
C: In my opinion, the duty doesn’t just depend on the large companies because protecting the environment is an all-rounded process related to all of us. However, it’s easier for the large business organization to spend more money to establish green technology which is environmentally friendly. Besides, they need to reduce the release of the industrial waste.
E: How can we teach children about the importance of protecting the environment?
C: Well, this is a rush time for us to act, to improve the children’s awareness about protecting the environment, but it’s never easy. In my opinion, I think that the children need to learn about the environment and join the practical activities for this purpose such as collecting the rubbish on the beach, taking part in the pressure groups to raise their voices about the environment.
