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!
