  5. Kate likes doesn't like spending holidays in the country.

Kate: Why do we always go to the countryside for our holidays? It's so boring here.

Nick: Well, Kate, you know Grandma needs our help. There's always a lot of work to do in the countryside, especially in summer.

Kate: I think grandma must sell her house in the village and come to live with us in the city.

Nick: But she can't. She loves it here. She needs the peace and quiet of the countryside to feel happy.

Kate: It's too peaceful and quiet here if you ask me. No cinemas, no cafés, no shopping centres, no parks...

Nick: Of course there are no parks, Kate. There are forests and fields around the village, and a lovely river near it. The landscape is beautiful.

Kate: The river and the fields are OK for a day or two, but then you start getting bored.

Nick: You can ride your bike in the fields, you can go swimming in the river. You can ride a horse, Kate.

Kate: A horse? No, I'm afraid of horses. Riding horses, playing with chickens in the farmyard, and milking cows is not my idea of fun. Grandma's cow is huge, it's a real monster.

Nick: Don't you get tired of the hustle and bustle of the city?

Kate: No, I don't. I love the noise, and the traffic, and the crowded streets. And here in the country, I feel isolated.

Nick: You can chat with your friends on the internet.

Kate: The internet? You must be kidding. It's so difficult to connect to the internet here...

Weekend with my grandmother in the village

I'm a city mouse. But sometimes my parents take me to my grandmother. She lives in the village. It takes about 2 hours to go to the village. When I arrive, I immediately inhale fresh air. There is a forest near my grandmother's house. My grandmother has many animals: a goat, a cow, chickens and a dog. In the morning, my grandmother and I feed everyone, milk the cow and goat, and collect eggs. Then I help my grandmother water the garden. Grandma treats me to fruit and pancakes. Her house is very cozy. I also love the village for its beautiful landscapes. After the weekend, I am happy to return to the city. Sometimes it's worth going to the village to relax, but I'm starting to feel isolated and I rather want to go to the city to visit friends. The village is too quiet and peaceful.

    Делаем вместе с сыном бесплатные задания по английскому в Skysmart, это оказалось полезно не только для него, но и для меня. Например, вспомнила, как использовать артикли, — эта тема для меня всегда была сложноватой. Хотелось бы побольше заданий на аудирование, пока у сына этот навык хромает.

    Я занимаюсь в Skysmart с 3‑го класса, и немного удивился, когда нашел раздел с бесплатными заданиями здесь. Они отличаются от тех, которые мы проходим на уроках, но тоже интерактивные. По-моему, на компьютере делать упражнения получается быстрее и интереснее, чем в тетрадке.

    Наткнулась на этот сайт, когда готовилась к ВПР по английскому. Пассивный залог — моя больная тема, но бесплатные задания помогли вспомнить правила, а потом еще статью почитала, и работу написала в итоге хорошо.
