Describe a monument (e.g., a statue or sculpture) that you like.

You should say:

  • what this monument is

  • where this monument is

  • what it looks like

and explain why you like this monument

Example Response

A monument that I love is the Statue of Liberty. This iconic monument stands proudly in New York City, specifically on Liberty Island in the harbor. The statue is a colossal copper sculpture portraying a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom. It holds a torch above its head with one hand and a tablet inscribed with the date of the American Declaration of Independence in the other.


I admire the Statue of Liberty for its rich symbolism and what it represents. It stands as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy, welcoming immigrants and embodying hope and opportunity. Its history and the values it embodies make it a powerful and inspiring monument, resonating with people worldwide.
