? What are the pros and cons of living in the town and in the village? ?
Town the public transport is reasonable good services choice of schools, variety of schools and places of work, better chances of good education and employment more cultural facilities (a good selection of cinemas, restaurants to choose from) a better chance to find a job you can meet many new people very lively better supplies in shops (wide choice, within easy reach) more personal and intimate atmosphere Village quiet place less pollution beautiful nature, fresh and clean air people know each other, like a big family simple life, gentle pace of living the time passes slowly, nobody is rushing anywhere no heavy traffic many people have farms (have animals like cows, horses, chicken,..) many trees, flowers, gardens more relaxation (gardening, walking in the forest and in the fields) Advantages
Town huge problems with crime and vandalism lack of security much pollution, exhaust fumes from cars, smoke from factories few trees, flowers little space for playgrounds for children more stress, hurrying, higher cost of living small flats, monotonous, dirty blocks of flats overcrowded buses commuting difficulties (rush hours, traffic jams) relations and attitudes among people are rather cold and impersonal, next-door neighbors barely know one another Village people have to commute to work there is always much work to do around the house and garden few cultural facilities, shops, schools,.. less chance of a successful career it is boring life is sometimes a bit slow nowhere to go, long silent winter nights gossips everybody knows everything about all people living in the village less efficient services (one doctor or no doctor at all, no post office, no bank, etc.) Disadvantages

I live in quite a big detached house. Downstairs there are 4 rooms altogether. As you come in through the front door, the first thing you see is a very big hall. At the end of the hall is a staircase leading upstairs. The first room on the right is the dining room. Opposite this, on the left, is quite a large living-room. A door from the living-room leads to a small study. opposite the study, next to the dining room, is the kitchen. This is very big and very modern. it’s one of our favourite rooms. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms. As you walk along the landing towards the front of the house, there are two bedrooms on your right and one on your left. Bedroom 1 is very large and has a balcony which overlooks the garden. we often have breakfast here in the summer. Bedroom 2 is in the front of the house and the third bedroom, which we use as a spare room, is opposite the bathroom. At the end of the landing, on the left, is a separate toilet.

Outside a house Read the following text and study the drawing. then write the words in bold type in the text next to the correct numbers 1 – 20. I think the front of my house is very attractive. The frontgarden is full of flowers and bushes, and around the house is a high hedge. There’s NO PARKING sign on the gate and quite a wide drive leading up to the garage. From the gate to the garage is a low, brick wall. The back garden is very large. At the bottom are several fruit trees and a lawn with a small pond in the middle of it. There is another lawn which comes up to the patio. There is also a flower bed near the back door and a path that leads to the garden shed and the greenhouse, where we grow our own tomatoes. Between our house and our neighbour’s is a wooden fence. The only thing I don’t like about the house is the roof. The chimney is very ugly, especially with the aerial attached to it. I wish someone would design an attractive television aerial! Write the words here. 1 11 2 12 3 13 4 14 5 15 6 16 7 17 8 18 9 19 10 20
