ELIVING IN THE CITY OR IN THE COUNTRYSIDE?Reading Activity

 

Mark who lives in London is chatting on the Internet with his friend Steve, who lives on a farm about 50 miles from the city and with Kostas, who lives in Athens. Mark is worried about all the problems of living in a big city. Read the chat conversation.

Mark: Steve, do you enjoy living in the countryside?

Steve: Not so much. I don't go out much because my dad is always busy with the farm. I don't go out with friends, I never go to the cinema. All I do is spend time watching TV.

Mark: Maybe you are better off. It is not always safe to go out in London. It's a lot safer where you live.

Steve: Yes, but life is more boring here.

Mark: You breathe fresh air all the time. There is a lot of traffic where I live in London and so the air is more polluted. Also your schools have fewer problems than our schools. We have a lot of children who need to be helped by special teachers. Kostas, do you enjoy living in Athens?

Kostas: Yes, even if it is a big city, Athens is a safe city which has a lot to offer for children and teenagers. I think living in Athens is a lot better than living in the countryside. In the countryside you are cut off.

True or False. Circle the correct answer and discuss your answers with your partner. Do you agree with Mark?
