Describing Places – Describing a City

Are you able to describe your city?


Where in the world are you? We will describe places on this page. You can write about your hometown or the city where you live. You can also talk about it to a real person in any language. Do you need a language exchange partner? You can find one at the Live Language Page. You can talk about your city or any city in any language.


Are you able to describe your city? Look at this example:

Bris Angeles – Brisbane

I live in Bris Angeles. Have you ever heard of Bris Angeles? Have you heard of Brisbane? Brisbane is the capital of Queensland, which is one of the states of Australia. It is the northeastern state.

Brisbane is a big city and it has expanded to swallow other surrounding cities like Logan, Beenleigh and Redcliffe.

Thirty years ago Brisbane was a sleepy place. People called it a big country town rather than a city because it was so quiet. The buildings were old classical colonial buildings. The houses were made of wood. The roads were not too crowded and the hi-rise was limited to the inner city.

In the last three decades, Brisbane has grown and grown and grown and grown. Queensland is in the north and the weather is warm so many people move up to the Brisbane area (also called: “south-east Queensland”) to enjoy the warmer weather. Now Brisbane stretches almost to the Sunshine Coast (Caloundra) in the north and the Gold Coast in the south. To the west it has almost reached Toowoomba. The city is getting bigger and bigger and bigger. It is for that reason that I call it Bris Angeles.

Look at these place names from the text:

Gold Coast
Sunshine Coast
Los Angeles

Note that place names are called “proper nouns” and they are written with capital letters. (“Brisbane” not “brisbane”) Can you find the place names on the map? You can read about the place and look at it on the map:

Los Angelisation

Los Angeles is a huge city. It used to be smaller but it grew and grew and swallowed the surrounding communities. When a big city swallows other cities around it and the private automobile and its highways become the dominate citizens, we call it “Los Angelization”.

Has your city been Los Angelised?

Has it grown and grown and grown and swallowed other cities?

Has it been swallowed by another city?

Write about your city. Describe it. Tell us all about it. You can describe it in the comments section.


Talking about the Ocean

Most cities are built on water. Is your city on the coast or on a river? Write your answer in the comments s ection at the bottom of this page. Use this example to help you:

Brisbane and the Pacific Ocean

To the east of Bris Angeles is the Pacific Ocean. The city cannot grow to the east. The eastern boundary is the sea. There are islands off the east coast. They protect the coast from the waves. That means there is no surf in Brisbane. There is surf in Perth so you can go surfing in the city at lunchtime and then go back to work. There is surf in Sydney so you can go surfing at lunch time and then go back to work. People in Brisbane drive to the Gold Coast or the Sunshine Coast on the week-end to go surfing. Do you surf? Have you ever surfed? Queenslanders love the sea.

Talking about the Foundation of a City

Is your city a new one or an old one? When was it founded? Do you know about the history of the place where you live? Tell us about the history of your city. Write your answer in the “comments” section at the bottom of this page. Use the example below to help

The Founding of Brisbane

Brisbane is situated on the Brisbane River about halfway up the east coast of Brisbane. Originally Aboriginal people lived in the area but the English came and landed there in 1824 and built a convict settlement about ten miles up the river from the coast, where they found fresh water. The city grew and became the capital of the colony of Queensland then in 1901 it became a State of the Commonwealth of Australia when Australia seceded from Britain and became an independent country with its own elected government, court system and head of state.

    I live in Cubatao, for now, that is also my hometown. Cubatão is the city of industrial center of the lowland-Santos, located in the state of São Paulo. It is the city in the region that provides employment for its residents and for residents of neighboring towns. Overall Cubatao has many attractive places for fun or family getaway, unless tourist sites of the time of discovery. It is also the only city in the region that has no beach. But it’s a good place to live.

  10. José Cláudio says:

    Hi, i live in Santos, in São Paulo state, Brazil. Santos is not so big, but is not small. Here there is the biggest South America’s seaport, and one of the most famous seaport of the world. In Santos, we have shopping malls, restaurants, supermarkets and beaches. Santos is a coast city, with several beaches to enjoy. In my city, i like to walk on the beach’s boardwalk,mainly in the afternoon,when the sunset is disappearing. Santos is a good and quiet city to live.

  16. Ibtihaj says:

    Hello there
    I am Ibtihaj, I am from Saudi Arabia. I would like to tell you about my city which is Riyadh. Riyadh is the capital city of Saudi Arabia; it is located in the central area and has a desert climate. Generally, it is a sophisticated city where you can find many things to do. In case of education, it has several universities,colleges and educational institutes. Additionally, people spend their free time in shopping malls and parks. One thing that I do not like about Riyadh is the traffic jam. Although streets roads and bridges are built big and wide, they are not enough. The reason behind this crowded is that there is no public transportation system in Riyadh. Otherwise, it is a lovely city and I would like to spend my rest of life in it with my family and friends.

    I am Renaud from BENIN (west Africa). I live in BOHICON, a town in central Benin. Given that it is located in the center of the country, it is a strategic town, since everything goes through there. from north to south, from east to west, everything goes through there. thus, it attracts a lot of shopping and you imagine already that it sells a lot. it is also a city full of foreign, who are sellers. this is a pretty nice city building and growing rapidly.

    Hi, everyone
    I’m from Bulgaria, a small county in Eastern Europe. I live in the capital city, named Sofia. It is not so big city like other mega polices in Europe. Around the city has two mountains, the closer is named Vitosha and the week-ends there are very peaceful. You can run out of the city very quickly, to brief fresh air, relax and return back refreshed. Have a lot of museums, churches, zoo and other places that you can visit like a tourist. At this moment in one of the bigger Church are the relics of the St John the Baptist. The relics were found this summer on the coast of Black see. You are welcome in Sofia.

  42. Maria Evans says:

    I am from Brazil Sao Paulo. I have been here for 5 years and I love Pleasanton. It’s a city in Alameda County in the North of California, USA. Incorporated in 1894. It’s a major suburb in the San Francisco Bay Area. The population is around 70,000. The transport is very easy, it’s situated at the crossroad of two major interstate Hiahways, I-580, I-680, every road is dividing by numbers.
    The center of Pleasanton is very cute. There are many shops, good restaurants and you can walk to everything.
    Living in Pleasanton you have a chance to visit beautiful beaches in the south of California, parks, mountains and practice all esports. We can’t forget to mention the wonderful city of San Francisco by driving just 45 minutes.

My family live near Hieu river, and I had have a font childhood by this mild river. My siblings was born and growth by this river. Now I live and work in HCMC, the bigest city of Viet Nam and also habor city. In general, HCMC is a beatifuf and dynamic city and it is suitable to young people because there are a lot of chances for them to study and find a good career. And the life here is very crowded and noisy, the life here is not as peaceful as my hometown, it is not fit for the old people.

    I live in Barranquilla city, Colombia. Have you ever heard about this city? Have you heard of arepa e´huevo? Barranquillla is the capital of Atlantico, which is one of the states of Colombia. It is a north state.

    Barranquila is a small city but it has expanded the last thirty years to swallow other surrounding cities like Soledad, Puerto Colombia, and Galapa.
    Thirty years ago Barranquilla was a quiet place. People called it the Colombia’s Gold Gate because it was the port through which entered everything to the rest of country. It has few high buildings.The houses are made of resistant materials. The roads are not too crowded.

    In the last three decades so far, Barranquilla has grown a lot; the weather is hot so the people live watering constantly, nevertheless they enjoy their weather. Now Barranquilla stretches to the Caribbean coast in the north. The city is getting bigger along the time because there is a permanent immigration from other states that see Barranquilla as prosperous city.

    Hi! everybody. I’m from Brazil,Salvador-Bahia. Principal tourist gateway to Northest Brazil, Salvador walks with giant steps to become Brazil’s tourism Capital, with its diversity of tourist attractions.A must for every foreign tourist. Salvador is Brazil’s most modern capital city with its merry and hospitable people. Salvador was Brazil’s first Capital. Known to the world as the ‘Land of Happiness’ , Salvador stands out among the other cities of the Country because in it everything is a reason dor festivities.The city breathes magic, mysticism, a lot of enchantment and beauty.Considered the largest colonial architectural Complex in Latin American, Pelourinho (a touristic point of Salvador) is Historical Patrimony of Humanity. If Brazil was the land blessed by God, Bahia was certainly the most privileged by the gift of the Creator. It was given one of the most beautiful sea costs of the Country.
    (beutiful beaches)The nearly 50 Islands, more than 365 churches scattered to the four corners of the city, Forts, Museums, great night life etc. Well, the festivities calendar is immense, still have the large street carnival in the world. Spicy, colorful, aromatic and even aphrodiasiac are all the terms that could be used to describe Bahian Cuisine The only way to appreciate all that’s been described here is to come to Salvador.
