Uncle Brown showed them the field of wheat and vegetables where some tractors were running up and down, ploughing and breaking soil, distributing manure and planting potatoes.

After lunch, they all went for a walk. In the large yard of the farm, they saw some farm machines. Among them is the biggest machine which is called a combine harvester. They were told that this machine can cut and thresh corn at the same time.

In the afternoon, they went to the place where cattle such as horses, sheep and cows were raised. They were very excited to see how cows were milked by the workers there.

Living in the country is something that people from the city often dream about.

However, in reality, it has both advantages and disadvantages.

There are certainly many advantages to living in the country. First, you can enjoy peace and quietness. Moreover, people tend to be friendlier. A further advantage is that there is less traffic, so it is safer for young children.

However, there are certain disadvantages or drawbacks to life outside the city. First, because there are fewer people, you are likely to have few friends. In addition, entertainment is difficult to find, particularly in the evening. Furthermore, the fact that there are fewer shops and services means that it is hard to find jobs.

In short, it can be seen that the country is more suitable for some people than others. On the whole, it is often the best for those who are retired or who have young children. In contrast, young people who have a career are better provided in the city.

A. only good points

IV. Read the following passage and answer the questions.

Hi! My name is Marek. I’ve been staying in England on an exchange visit and I’ve found it a very interesting experience. I’ve been staying with a boy called Peter and his family for two weeks. The first thing I learnt was how to great English people. When I met Peter and his parents at the airport, I tried to kiss them on the cheeks. His parents looked a bit shocked but let me kiss them. Peter just smiled and said “Hi!”.

The city where they live is very interesting, and is much bigger than my small village. I’ve never seen so many motorways, and there’s a recycling bin on every corner. It’s really noisy, tough, and there are so many cars that they need to have traffic lights everywhere.

I like it here but I think I still prefer the countryside. There are more trees and animals, and not so many factories.

In all, I’ve learnt a lot from my exchange but I’ll be glad to get back to Poland. I wonder what Peter will think when he comes to stay here!

1. How long has Marek been in England?

2. How did he greet Peter’s parents at the airport?

3. What hasn’t Marek seen before?

4. Does Marek prefer cities or the countryside?

5. Where does Marek come from?
