Travelling Experience

Ann: Look here, Helen, there are pictures of Big Ben and Westminster Palace on your T-shirt and I can see the Union Jack on your schoolbag. Does it mean that you have accomplished your dream and visited London this summer or just had a shopping trip for a new school year?

Helen: I adore shopping, of course, and I did do some shopping but in London.

Ann: Great! Was it a sightseeing tour or a study visit?

Helen: Both. We had English lessons four days a week at a private school and the rest of the week was given to sightseeing. I was very impressed by visiting the British Museum, especially by its Egyptian collection.

Ann: No wonder, travelling is always exciting. The more you travel, the more you learn.

Helen: I knew you would say this as you are the most experienced traveller in our class. Where have you been this time?

Ann: I’ve been on the move all my summer holidays. At the beginning of the summer I visited Lviv. My cousin Denis invited me. He was having his international friends over from Canada and I participated in the welcoming party.

Helen: Let me guess your contribution. You cooked Ukrainian national dishes - varenyks, pancakes, pies and you sang your favourite Ukrainian folk songs.

Ann: Poor guess. I did nothing of the sort. The Canadian girls liked my vyshyvanka and I taught them how to embroider in Ukrainian national style.

Helen: Great! You had a chance to practise your hobby, I believe.

Ann: In a way, but it was a good experience. Then I went to Odessa and spent three weeks there swimming in the sea and lying in the sun. And finally, I went to my granny’s place to Belarus and stayed there up to the end of my holidays. I saw and learned a lot there.

Helen: So, we prove the truth of the old saying again, ‘Travelling is worth trouble taking’.

2. Answer the questions.

1. What was Helen’s dream?

2. Did Helen accomplish it?

3. Which girl is an experienced traveller?

4. How did Ann practise her hobby?

5. What did you learn about the Ann other hobbies?

6. Where did Ann spend the last days of her summer holidays?
