REVISION LESSONS LESSON 51

1. Listen to the dialogue and complete the table below. Then speak about the advantages and disadvantage of living in a city or in a village.

The City and the Country

David: How do you like living in this big city?

Maria: There are many things that are better than living in the country!

David: Can you give me some examples?

Maria: Well, it is certainly more interesting than the country. There is so much more to do and see!

David: Yes, but the city is more dangerous than the country.

Maria: That’s true. People in the city aren’t as open and friendly as those in the countryside.

David: I’m sure that the country is more relaxed, too!

Maria: Yes, the city is busier than the country. However, the country is much slower than the city.

David: I think that’s a good thing!

Maria : Oh, I don’t. The country is so slow and boring! It’s much more boring than the city.

David: How about the cost of living? Is the country cheaper than the city?

Maria: Oh, yes. The city is more expensive than the country.

David: Life in the country is also much healthier than in the city.

Maria: Yes, it’s cleaner and less dangerous in the country. But the city is so much more exciting. It’s faster, crazier and more fun than the country.

David: I think YOU are crazy about moving to the city.

Maria: Well, I’m young now. Maybe when I’m married and have children I’ll move back to the country.
