Listen to the text and do the tasks.
Bristol is not a very large port. It is smaller than Plymouth, Liverpool, Portsmouth and Dover, but it is very beautiful.
The port of Bristol became rich in the nineteenth century by importing sugar, rum and tobacco and also by exporting slaves. It is still a rich city and is now the centre of the aviation industry. Rolls Royce makes airplane engines just outside Bristol.
Bristol is divided into two parts. One of them is the port on the Avon with narrow streets, old churches and half wooden houses. It has a wooden eighteenth century theatre untouched since those days.
This was the port from which many ships sailed in Elizabeth’s reign. The 18th century stone houses climb up the hills to the second part of Bristol. This part is more modern and it has many fine houses built of pink stone and many wonderful monuments and churches. Bristol has a collage named Collage Green, the University, the art gallery and some museums. The University building has a very high tower from the top of which you can see Collage Green, many churches and Park Street.
