T: Modern life is impossible without travelling. Travelling has completely changed our life, our knowledge about other people, their life-style and culture. Do you like travelling? Where do you like to travel: in our country or abroad? Why do people travel to the UK? Make up the mind-map.
Possible answers using the method “Microphone”. I think (In my opinion)…
To meet people; to take part in celebrations; to learn English better; to know more about the Royal family; to make friends, to visit London ( other cities); to study; to see the countryside; to work…
