Give a talk on the life in the city.
Remember to discuss:
-why people prefer to live in the city
-why some people choose to live in the countryside
-whether it is possible to solve all the problems of big cities, why
-where would you prefer to live, why
Lots of people prefer living in cities rather than in the countryside because it is often easier to get good education and find a well-paid job. Besides, there is usually a wide choice of public transport, so you donft need to own a car, which is necessary when you live in the countryside. What is more, there are a lot of interesting things to do and places to see. If you live in the village, you have almost nowhere to go, but if you live in the city, you can eat in good restaurants, visit museums, and go to the theatre and to concerts. All in all, city life is full of bustle and variety, and you will never feel bored.
However, some people choose to live in the countryside because living in a city is often very expensive. It is particularly difficult to find good cheap accommodation. What is more, public transport is sometimes crowded and dirty, particularly in the rush hour, and even the parks can become very crowded, especially on Sundays when it seems that every city-dweller is looking for some open space or green grass. On the contrary, the air in the countryside is very clean and there are no noisy crowds, so living in the country can be useful for your health. Last of all, despite all the crowds, it is still possible to feel very lonely in a city because people often don't know their neighbours whereas in the countryside people know each other and you have lots of friends.
In my opinion it's possible to solve most of the problems of big cities, for example, the problem of pollution. Cutting down on emissions from large combustion
plants and exhaust fumes from vehicles would help solve the problem. I think we should try and use alternative energy such as solar energy and wind energy and design plants and cars that run on electricity, a much cleaner fuel than petrol. In addition, I think the government should ban cars from city centres. We can also improve the situation with traffic if the government encourages people to use the underground more. I would argue that if the underground was made cheaper, many people would decide to leave their cars at home.
As for me, I would prefer city life because I am keen on visiting theatres, cinemas, museums and galleries and don't mind noise and pollution. Besides, my city offers me good opportunities to continue my education and I hope to find a prestigious job in the future. However, I enjoy the peace and fresh air of the countryside and in summer I usually go to my country house where I have a good time with my friends.
Is the city life stressful? Why?
How would you improve the living conditions in the place where you live?
Why do young people tend to live in cities?
Where do you think people will live in the future, in cities or in the countryside? Why?
Would you like to change the place where you live? Why?
You and your friend are discussing where both of you would like to live in the future. There are several options but you may choose only one of them:
in a city
in the countryside
in the mountains
at the seaside
'If you had an opportunity to choose, where would you live?' 'If I could choose, I would prefer to live in a big city like London. It's a wonderful city with lots of museums to visit and sights to enjoy. I'll be able to walk in beautiful parks and spend my free time in a pub.1
'I don't think it's a good idea to live in a big city. Well, it's great to come to London as a tourist but if you live there all the time, I'm sure you will be fed up with all these sights and museums. Just think about noise, pollution and traffic jams during rush hours. Besides, accommodation in big cities is rather expensive because there aren't enough houses for everybody.'
'As for me, I don't mind noise and pollution. But if I live in a city, I'll be able to find an interesting job and earn a lot of money.'
'I can't agree with you. It's difficult to find a job in a big city. You might not be able to find a job in the area that you enjoy and you'll have problems with getting to work. As for me, I would prefer to work for myself and live somewhere in the countryside.'
'First of all, the air in the countryside is fresh and there is no pollution. I'll be able to grow fruit and vegetables for my family and we will enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Besides, I'll live in my own house with lots of rooms. I think it's better than living in a small stuffy flat in the city.'
'I would agree with you but, in my opinion, there is nothing to do in the countryside. You'll soon get bored with such a lifestyle. In addition. I think it's very
hard to grow fruit and vegetables. You'll have to work hard all day long. And in case of bad weather, you can lose all your crops. Farming is definitely not my cup of tea.'
'OK. What about living in the mountains? The air and water in the mountains are exceptionally clean and we would be able to enjoy magnificent mountain views.'
'But what shall we do for a living? 1 think it's impossible to find any work in the mountains.'
'Not exactly. We could work as tourist guides in summer and in winter we could teach tourists downhill skiing. Our life will be easy and exciting!'
'On the contrary, it will be rather boring: only work and absolutely no entertainment. There are no cinemas and theatres .in the mountains. Besides, it's always cold there and life can be really dangerous because of severe weather conditions. Let's live in a small town at the seaside. The climate is warm and nice there. We could open a small hotel near the sea and have lots of tourists. It's not hard to run a private hotel. Besides, we'll have an opportunity to communicate with people from all over the world. It's exciting!'
'Great idea! There is no pollution at the seaside and we can enjoy a healthy lifestyle. We could go to the beach early in the morning or late in the evening and swim in the sea. And we could eat lots of fruit and vegetables.'
'And if we get bored with the sea and the sun we could go to the cinema or to a disco with our friends. So, what place do you think we should choose?'
'If you agree, we'll choose to live at the seaside.'
'1 completely agree with you.'
I. Прочитайте текст и выполните предложенные задания. Обведите кружком правильные ответы.
How would you like to live in a castle, a tree house or even underground? This might not be as unusual as you might think. It seems that these days more and more people want to live somewhere special out of the ordinary, and if they can't buy what they want they are quite prepared to build it from scratch.
For John Mew and his wife Josephine their home really is a castle. They have built their own English castle in the Sussex countryside. The building is brand new with all the luxuries you would expect from a house that cost more than 350,000 pounds to build. However, when you first see it from the outside it would be easy to think that you are looking at an ancient monument. The building has a lot of the features of a traditional castle, including a tower, a moat and a drawbridge. "My choice of house is somewhat eccentric and building it was very hard work, but we've got the perfect place to live," Mew says. Although some would say that the building is impractical and
may be cold in harsh British winters, he certainly has got a unique and spacious home.
If you don't look carefully, you might not even see the home that Jonathan Ridley-Jones and Shannon Ridd built at all! That's because the house is a converted water tank. The only thing that could be seen from the surface is a door leading into the hillside. "We've never wanted to live in an ordinary house," Shanon says. "Living below ground means that our home is quiet and very cosy - none of the usual draughts. It doesn't damage the local surroundings and has very low fuel bills. Some of our friends find it dark and feel shut
in when they first visit, they soon get used to it!"
If an underground home doesn't appeal to you, how about living in the treetops? Dan Garner, a tree surgeon from Gloucestershire, certainly thinks that this is the way to go up the world.
"When our family became short of space at home our solution was to build a luxury tree house in the garden. The tree house is built into a spruce tree six metres above the ground. It has one main room, a bedroom and a balcony running around two sides." Gamer is so happy with this practical extension to his home that he thinks he can convince more people of the benefits of living in the trees. He wants to set up his own enterprise making more of the deluxe tree dwellings, saying,, "The trees are airy, secure and comfortable and the only disadvantage is that they might not be suitable for people who suffer from hay fever or a fear of heights!"
Even people who live in more ordinary settings sometimes can't resist doing something to make them stand out from the crowd. One extreme example of this is Bill Heines' house in Headington, Oxfordshire. Until one morning in 1986, his house looked much like all the others in his street, when suddenly overnight a 7.5 m long fiberglass shark appeared to have crashed through the roof. The shark was a sculpture by local artist John Buckley. At first some people complained that it might be dangerous or that it spoiled the look of the neibourhood, but engineers checked that the sculpture was safe and the !Headington shark1 has become well-known and popular landmark. It seems that no matter where you live, you can always do something to make sure your house says something about who you are.

Comment on the following statement.
Some people enjoy living in big cities whereas others find such a lifestyle really
What is your opinion? Which way of life do you find more satisfying?
Write 200—250 words.
Use the following plan:
make an introduction (state the problem)
express your personal opinion and give reasons for it
give arguments for the other point of view and explain why you don't agree with it
draw a conclusion Сочинение:
Nowadays many adults consider city life quite dangerous. On the contrary, lots of young people tend to move to big cities in search of better life and I can understand their point of view.
In my opinion, life in a big city has lots of advantages. For example, it is often easier to get prestigious education and to find a well-paid job. Besides, there is a wider choice of shops, sports facilities and health centers. What is more, if you live in the city, you can eat in good restaurants, visit museums or go to the theatre. All in all, city lifestyle is full of variety so you will never feel bored.
However, many people argue that city life is rather unsafe as there is a lot of crime and violence. In addition, they claim that city dwellers have more problems with their health owing to pollution. I don't consider these arguments really crucial because much is done by the government to eliminate crime in cities. I think that we must all do our best to make our city a safer place. As for pollution, there are lots of parks in cities and the restrictions on harmful emissions are tougher nowadays.
In conclusion, I believe that if we try and solve the problems of crime and pollution, city life will be really enjoyable. As for me, I would prefer to live in the city because I am keen on visiting theatres and don't mind noise and pollution.
Home, sweet home. It does not matter what your home is like — a country mansion, a more modest detached or semi-detached house, a flat in a block of flats or even a room in a communal flat. Anyway, it is the place where you once move in and start to furnish and decorate it to your own taste. It becomes your second "ego".
Your second "ego" is very big and disquieting if you have a house. There is enough space for everything: a hall, a kitchen with an adjacent dining-room, a living-room or a lounge, a couple of bedrooms and closets (storerooms), a toilet and a bathroom. You can walk slowly around the house thinking what else you can do to renovate it. In the hall you cast a glance at the coatrack and a chest of drawers for shoes. Probably, nothing needs to be changed here.
You come to the kitchen: kitchen furniture, kitchen utensils, a refridgerator (fridge) with a freezer, a dishdrainer, an electric or gas cooker with an oven. Maybe, it needs a cookerhood?
The dining-room is lovely? A big dining table with chairs in the centre, a cupboard with tea sets and dinner sets. There is enough place to keep all cutlery and crockery in. You know pretty well where things go.
The spacious living-room is the heart of the house. It is the place where you can have a chance to see the rest of your family. They come in the evening to sit around the coffee table in soft armchairs and on the sofa. You look at the wall units, stuffed with china, crystal and books. Some place is left for a stereo system and a TV set. A fireplace and houseplants make the living-room really cosy.
Your bedroom is your private area though most bedrooms are alike: a single or a double bed, a wardrobe, one or two bedside tables and a-dressing-table.
You look inside the bathroom: a sink, hot and cold taps and a bath. There is nothing to see in the toilet except a flush-toilet.
You are quite satisfied with what you have seen, buf still doubt
disturbs you: fIs there anything to change?' Yes! The walls of the rooms should be papered, and in the bathroom and toilet — tiled! Instead of linoleum there should be parquet floors. Instead of patterned curtains it is better to put darker plain ones, so that they might not show the dirt. You do it all, but doubt does not leave you. Then you start moving the furniture around in the bedroom, because the dressing-table blocks out the light. You are ready to give a sigh of relief, but... suddenly find out that the lounge is too crammed up with furniture.
Those who live in one-room or two-room flats may feel pity for those who live in houses. They do not have such problems. At the same time they have a lot of privileges: central heating, running water, a refuse-chute and... nice neighbours who like to play music at midnight. Owners of small flats are happy to have small problems and they love their homes no less than those who live in three- storeyed palaces. Home, sweet home.

My dear Mavis,
Our new house has its roof on now, so Jack and I are getting very excited about it. We're busy choosing furniture. Luckily we have wardrobes built in, and even к sideboard, so we haven't to spend a fortune. We haven't a fortune to spend.
I'd very much like your advice about curtains and rugs. I'm sure you know much better than I do what colour schemes would look well.

Mavis To Ann
32 Parkway, Hampstead, N.W.S 5 September 1992
My dear Ann,
Of course I'd be delighted to help you, if you think my advice useful, in choosing curtains and rugs. It'll be almost as exciting as choosing them for my own house. You are lucky having a house built for you: David and I will probably have to wait five years before we can many, unless we can get a building society to help us.
I'm Very fond of reds - they make a room look warm. Blues and greens are rather cold colours, don't you think? Yellows and creams are good for walls, but not very suitable for rugs.
I'm very much looking forward to seeing the house. Do let me know when the inside decoration is finished, and we'll fix a date. I hope David can join us, though he's not really an expert gardener.
