Topic: Crowded Places
1. (What kind of places are often crowded?)
(Answer) Most often, crowded places are public venues that attract a great number of people. Megacities like New York, Beijing, and Tokyo are known for being exceptionally crowded. Photos of massive crowds of people depict these cities’ residents doing everything from walking down the street to marching in parades and even sitting in traffic.
2. (Do you like going to crowded places?)
(Answer) Yes, sometimes. (Give a reason for your answer) I’m an extrovert in nature, so I like to go out and socialize with others. I like big crowds at sporting events and concerts, for example, but I can be intimidated when entering a big social gathering and facing the prospect of mingling. I think it depends on whether the event is me spectating or something where I’m expected to interact with the crowd.
3. (Why do people like to go to crowded places?)
(Answer) Well, there are many reasons for this tendency. (Give a reason for your answer) After all, it boils down to the way humans conduct their lives. While some prefer to live the life of a community, others are individualistic. Cheerful people prefer sharing their activities with the crowd and take it as collective enjoyment. As a matter of fact, while young people like adventure and loudness, older people value their privacy and time with themselves.
