Reading

  1. Listen and read. Transport in London.

If it has two floors it’s called a double-decker and you can get a good view from the top. If it has only one floor it’s called a single-decker.

Buses have a two person crew it’s a driver who drives, of course, and the conductor (or the conductress if it’s a woman) who takes your money. Keep your ticket as the inspector might want to check it. You catch a bus at bus stop.

For longer distances take a long –distance bus called a coach which is slower but cheaper.

A double decker bus has an upstairs (top) and a downstairs (inside).

The use of the word “inside” for the lower deck dates from the early days when the top was open, so that only passengers on the lower deck was open, so that only passengers on the lower deck were inside. People queue for buses in Britain.

But you shouldn’t jump the queue: people don’t like it. Only a limited number is allowed to stand inside. And no one may stand on top. Smoking in allowed on top but you cannot smoke inside.

  1. Conductor and conductress,
  2. Inspector and bus driver,

Roadways

By John Masefield

One road leads to London

One road runs to Wales

My road leads me seawards

To the white dipping sails

One road leads to the river

As it goes linging slow

My road leads to shipping

Where the bronzed sailors go

My road calls me, lures me

West, east, south and north

Most roads men homewards

My road leads me forth

  1. Read. Kuralai’s “Dream vacation”

When I go on my dream vacation I am going to fly all over the world. I will mainly see large cities. Maybe I will begin my trip in New York. There I hope to see the Statue of Liberty.

Then I’m going to fly to Paris. Probably I will to see the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral. I’m also going to eat croissants.

Next I will fly to Rio-de-Janeiro and Cairo. In Rio I will definitely learn to dance samba. When I get to Cairo I will see the Nile River. Maybe I will see the Pyramids at Giza.

Then I am going to fly –to Melbourne, but probably I will stay only a few days in the city. I want to travel in the country and see the special animals like kangaroos and koala bears. Then I am going to fly to Tokio. I hope to see the traditional city of Kyoto. Maybe I will try on a kimono there.

My last country will be Kazakhstan because this is where I live. I will be happy to be home again because “East or West Home is best!”
