ЗАДАНИЕ 1. Прочитайте текст и выполните задания после текста, выберите правильный вариант ответа.
The company Hong Kong Housing is building a new suburb in Shanghai, a city with a population of more than 15 million people. But this suburb is not like other parts of Shanghai. It is a little piece of England. The name of the new area is English Town. The manager of Hong Kong Housing says many people in this part of China want to buy an English house and live like the English do.
This town is like any other English town, for example Bristol or Chester, there is a square in the centre. In this square there are pigeons that you can feed. Some years ago you could do that in Trafalgar Square in London. English Town is also very proud of its long and busy shopping street. There are several shops in this street where you can buy traditional English food like fish and chips or Christmas pudding. Not far from it there are four English-style pubs and you can buy different English drinks there.
There are no cricket fields in this new English Town. Nobody in Shanghai can play this game. But there is a football stadium like those in England because people love football. English Town even has its own football team. Also, there is a canal in the town where you can go boating like in Cambridge. However, not many people do that.
