We had a very easy table (not even a line graph) describing money donations for the reconstruction of old buildings.

Writing Task 2 (an essay)

Some people think that private medicine is better for your health. Others say that healthcare should be free of charge and government-funded. Discuss, what is your opinion?



General questions about my name, etc.

Cue Card

A card about the place/town I recently visited. Would I like to come back there? When? Why?
I was speaking to some other people about their cards, the topics were: a national costume, shopping habits, learning a foreign language(not English).


– Do you think it’s better to live in the county or in a town?
– What difference is there between people from cities and those who live in the country?
– How are their characters different?
– What makes a small town become a megalopolis?
