My favourite room

Му favourite room is our kitchen. Perhaps the kitchen is the most important room in many houses, but it is particularly so in our house because it’s not only where we cook and eat but it’s also the main meeting place for family and friends. I have so many happy A____ of times spent there: special occasions such as homecomings or cooking Christmas dinner; troubled times, which B____ to comforting cups of tea in the middle of the night; ordinary daily events such as making breakfast on dark, cold winter mornings for sleepy children before sending them off to school, then sitting C____ to read the newspaper with a steaming hot mug of coffee. Whenever we have a party, people gravitate with their drinks to the kitchen. It always ends up the fullest and noisiest room in the house.

So what does this special room D____ like? It’s quite big, but not really huge. It’s big enough to have a good-sized oval table in the centre, E____ is the focal point of the room.

There is a large window above the sink, which looks out onto two apple trees in the garden. The cooker is at one end. At the other end is a wall with a large notice-board, which tells the story of our lives, past, present, and future, in words and pictures. All our world is there for everyone to read! Without doubt some of the happiest times of my life have been spent in our kitchen.

Living in a city

Living in a city has both advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side, it is often easier to find job, and there is usually a choice of public transport, so you don’t need to own a car. Also, there are a lot of interesting things to A____ and places to see. For example, you can eat in good restaurants, visit museums, and go to the theatre and to concerts. What is more, when you want to relax, you can usually find a park where you can B____ the ducks or just sit on a park bench and read a book. All in all, city life is full of bustle and variety and you need never feel really bored.

However, for every plus there is a minus. For one thing, you might have a job, but unless it is very well-paid, you will not be able to C____ many of the things that there are to do, because living in a city is often quite expensive. It is particularly difficult to find good, cheap accommodation. What is more, public transport is sometimes crowded and dirty, particularly in the rush D____ , and even the parks can become very crowded, especially on Sundays when it seems that every city dweller is looking E____ some open space and green grass.

In conclusion, I think city life can be particularly appealing to young people, who like the excitement of the city and don’t mind the noise and pollution. However, many people, when they get older, and particularly when they have young children, often prefer the peace and fresh air of the countryside.

The inuit people

They lived in igloos in the winter but today many of them live in houses in small towns. They hunted seals — they ate the meat and B____ clothes from the fur. Many of the people still wear seal-skin clothes today because they are very warm. Remember, the weather is extremely cold for many months of the year. 80-year-old Inuit, Mariano Tagalik, C____ us a little about her early life. “Our winter igloos were very warm. We cooked inside so sometimes it got too hot. When I was a child I took D____ most of my clothes when I was in our igloo. In the short summers we lived in seal-skin tents, but I spent as much time as possible playing outside.” To move over the snow, they wore special snowshoes on their feet, but today many Inuits E____ snowmobiles. These machines can travel long distances in a short time. In the past it took them days or weeks to travel the same distance.

There are a few difficulties, of course. Their biggest worry at the moment is money — one of the cars E____ replacing, and the roof needs some expensive repairs.

Three hundred years after the death of Jesus Christ, the Roman emperors still demanded that everyone believe in the Roman gods.
