Sample 1 Describe a museum that you have visited Speaking Cue Card
On this occasion, I would like to tell you about museums. At first, I thought visiting museums was a waste of time and boring. But, nowadays, I have to change my opinion about it. Well, I have visited a few museums in different cities. I enjoyed visiting “Lawang sewu” or thousand doors in Semarang the most. I went to the museum almost two years ago while we were in Semarang. Visiting the museum was not a part of our original tour plan, yeah, just in leisure time. Actually, We visited this area for a different reason, because we went to Semarang as representatives, part of a scholarship program in my City. I went there with six of my friends and a guide who accompanied me during the tour. To be honest, two of my friends were not interested in visiting that museum as they had gone there before. But I insisted on going there and convinced them by saying that if you did not enjoy it, I would pay for breakfast! They agreed, and I was really happy about it. After I had bought entrance tickets, I entered the museum, and there was a wide garden in front of it that mesmerized me. At that very time, I realized that the inside would be more astonishing. This place was far larger than I initially thought it would be. There were three floors in the museum, and the interior of the building reminded me of the colonial era. I could see a lot of doors of the building from the ground floor. There were a lot of tourists, both domestic and international, visiting this museum and I had a feeling that most of them were enjoying it. Taking photos was allowed as well, so sometimes I took some snaps with my friends almost hundreds of times!
