Sample Answer band 7.0+

The maps describe the changes occurring to a center between 2010 and 2025.

It is apparent that the center will experience relatively comprehensive modernization with the modification of some old places and the construction of multiple new rooms. However, there are a number of areas that are going to remain unchanged.

In 2010, the center had a simple design with seven areas, including two rooms, a reception area, a hall, a car park and two gardens. The rooms, located in the top left-hand corner of the center, were immediately next to the hall and the reception. The reception was directly connected to one of the gardens, while the other garden was to the east of the L-shaped car park.

In 2025, the rooms in the northwestern corner will undergo no change, but the hall and the reception will be enlarged due to the relocation of the car park and the demolition of the eastern garden. As a result, a new residence hall with a capacity of 20 rooms will also be erected, standing next to the old hall. The car park will be moved south-eastwards and shrink, while the old garden right beside it will grow in width. To the front of this garden, a variety of new facilities will be built, namely an IT center, a canteen and kitchen, two meeting rooms, a game room and a music room.
