Describing Places

As you know the writing task in this unit is about how to describe a place using those adjectives you have learnt and paragraphs to divide the information from general to specific. From geografical features, climate or information of the place, city, country, then about special info about what we can see on the photo, and finally our personal info: how long we stayed there, what we can do, enjoy or visit in the place, or even our sensations there...

You can have a look on the writing guide at the end of the book and these photos to talk about.

Enjoy your description!

Telling a Story. Using Past Tenses

When you have to describe an event or tell something curious which happened in the past, you should use past tenses. The most common of these is the past simple. Two other tenses, past continuous and the past perfect can help us to say what we want more efficiently. However, it should be remembered that almost any story can be told using the past simple.
Bond opened the door very slowly, looked carefully around the room and walked in. The window was open and the curtains were blowing in the wind. Clearly someone had left in a hurry.
A: I saw a UFO once. Well, I think it was one.
B: Oh yeah?A: Yeah, really. I was in the country - in Yorkshire - on the moors...B: What were you doing up there?A: Oh, I was visiting some friends. They'd rented a cottage and we'd gone up to stay with them.

Typical Brits Abroad

How long could you survive on a desert island after a plane crash?

Flags of the World and their Stories

Many people could tell you what the stars and stripes represent on the flag of the USA, or why the Canadian flag is emblazoned with a maple leaf. But most of these people could not be as confident in clarifying the reasons for the unusual shape of the Nepalese flag and would struggle to explain the reasons behind the curious presence of an AK-47 on the flag of Mozambique.
There is huge variety in the colours and designs of national flags, but there is much more to consider than first meets the eye. A flag is not simply designed to look good flying in the wind, but often symbolises the culture, history and ideals of a nation. Just The Flight has explored the stories behind some of the world’s most interesting and recognisable national flags in this fascinating infographic.

A Good Idea...

Javier Gomez Noya (ESP) became the most successful man in ITU World Championship history when he completed a drive for five world titles as the overall winner of the World Triathlon Series with a second-place finish at the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Chicago.
“I think it is great. I can’t understand it yet, I sometimes can’t comprehend doing something like that in the last few years. It is just amazing,” Gomez said on collecting his fifth title. “Today I felt good, I had a great race. I felt really good on the race, I just couldn’t beat Mario—he was just too strong. But I am really pleased on getting the title and on the podium.”

27,372 Witness Imperial Spain Reclaim Throne

Spain Claim Gold In Front Of Record Audience

Spain delivered on Sunday their best defensive display of EuroBasket 2015 in front of an all-time record crowd of 27,372 spectators at Lille's Pierre Mauroy stadium to roll past Lithuania 80-63 and lift their third European trophy in the last four championships.
They Said: "We have done it again and we have to be proud because this is the tournament where we suffered the most, this time we did not arrive as favourites. It has a special taste because in the quarter-finals we beat a great team like Greece that was undefeated, in the semis we beat France which was also unbeaten, in their home, and in the final we beat a basketball nation like Lithuania" - Sergio Llull.
