Hi Pam,
Greetings from Vancouver. How are you? I hope you're well.
We are enjoying the good weather. Here, the sun is shining. At the moment, we are having a drink at a
cafe. I usually ask for a cup of coffee, but today I'm drinking ginger ale. Janet doesn't like coffee. She
never drinks coffee. She's having apple juice. Mark is at home preparing lunch. It's his turn to cook.
He's preparing some salad and hamburgers for our barbecue.
I can't wait to see Vancouver's Convention Center. It has six acres of grass growing on the roof, and
from its windows you can see Stanley Park and the North Shore Mountains in one direction and
downtown Vancouver in the other. How fantastic!
Well, it's time to go. I'm looking forward to seeing you next week.
Bye for now,
Julia

Reading
I always take the train to work. At the station, I go to the
ticket machine to buy my train ticket. It's easy. I select my
destination, insert the money and then I take my ticket.
On the ticket, you can see the seat number.
There are also ticket offices where you can buy your ticket.
I avoid them at rush hour because there is always a line up.
After that, I look at the departure screen for the track
number. I can also see if my train is delayed or on time.
While I'm waiting for the train, I sometimes buy a crossword
at the kiosk.
At the moment, I'm reading the newspaper on the train. This
helps me pass the time.

k
New York in one day … What can you see? What can you do?
I recommend Grand Central. When you walk into this old station, it's like a black and white photograph coming
to life. is terminal is busier than the other terminals – so watch out for people in a hurry. You can also go jogging
or bike-riding in Central Park.
If you like art, then I suggest the MET (Metropolitan Museum of Art), the Whitney or the Guggenheim.
e Whitney is closer to Central Park and has more works by younger and less-well-known American artists.
en have dinner at a restaurant around the livelier Times Square.
If you want the "tourist option", then go to the top of the Empire State Building. It's higher than the Bank of America
Tower. en take the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
If you like shopping, you can choose the cheaper option and go to Soho, or the more expensive option to Fi h Avenue.
en, why not use the subway to see New York's multicultural neighborhoods, Chinatown and Little Italy?
I'm a practical person and, when I don't have a lot of time, I choose a bus tour that stops at every famous monument.
It's a cooler and more pleasant option because there's air-conditioning inside.

19.1 Language Summary

Describing experiences and feelings

At an amusement park , you can go on many rides , such as the rollercoaster and the ferris wheel.

On the rollercoaster ride, there were many people screaming. It was fun and at the same time frightening . The ferris wheel was quite boring and slow . I put on some scuba-diving gear , such as my wetsuit, my scuba tank and my mask. I watched the sharks go around me. It wasn't dangerous because I was in a cage. Seals are funny . They make the public laugh a lot. The playground was fun for the kids. They had a great time! The scary dive coaster takes you up 250 feet. When I got off, my legs were like jelly. I couldn't stand up.

It was tough because we had to climb so many stairs, but in the end we had a wonderful time. Yesterday evening, we all went to the spa for a relaxing hot stone massage.

19.2 Language Summary

Making comparisons

Picasso, van Gogh and Monet are some examples of well-known artists . They're all famous. New York has some multicultural neighborhoods, such as Chinatown and Little Italy.

How about doing something more exciting , like seeing the island by bike?

Well, it's hotter today than yesterday, so I think the beach option is better .

The indoor playground for the twins had 24-hour supervision, so it was safe .

Modern cars are safer than old cars.

We always go to work by car, it's more convenient than with the bus.

It's worse on the ferry than on the hovercraft. The ferry is always crowded and slow.

This terminal is busier than the other terminals.

The hovercraft is faster than the ferry.

Stingray City is farther than Seven Mile Beach.

It's worse than I thought.

Stingrays are less dangerous than sharks.

Talking about extremes

Wing-suit flying is a sport where you jump in the air with a special jumpsuit.

Base-jumping is a sport in which a person parachutes from fixed objects, such as high buildings, cliffs, etc. Whitewater rafting is a sport of rafting down fast-flowing rivers, especially over rapids. Heliskiing is an extreme sport . A helicopter takes you to remote mountains and you ski there. Dangerous sports are linked to the most serious injuries to your body.

A car racer needs the best sports car.

A racing yacht needs the most competent crew.

An amateur mountaineer needs to be trained by the most experienced guide. Going to the spa is relaxing. Fishing and listening to music are the cheapest and easiest things to do. Today was my worst day ever. It was terrible from the moment I got up. Some people think fishing is the least fun . They think it's a boring activity.

My stay in Liverpool
Attachment: –
Hello Soraya,
I'm so excited. As you know, I'm traveling to Liverpool on Friday. Your sister invited me to spend
Saturday with her and the children. I'm staying at the Hilton for two nights. I'm meeting them
Saturday morning at the Glenrose Mall. We're having lunch at her house. She promised to cook
chicken and mushroom pie for me. Her closest friends are joining us for coffee, I'm happy to meet
them. After that, I'm taking the subway downtown to see the wax museum.
I don't know what I'm doing on Sunday, so I'm sending you some pictures of the local tourist
attractions I downloaded from the Internet. Can you help me decide? I'm catching my �light at 8:00
p.m., so I have the whole day to sightsee.
Well, that's all for now. See you when I return from Liverpool.
James
