TRAVEL/ HOLIDAYS

Intermediate B1
MY LAST HOLIDAYS

To start with, I'd like to travel to foreign countries, but I've never had the chance.
If I were a wealthy woman, I'd travel around the world and help people whose economic situations were difficult. Although, I've never been abroad, I arranged a trip to Edinburgh, last year.

On the 29th April, in the morning, the students and I went by bus to Alicante Airport.
We arrived there two and half hours before the flight departed because we had to checked in our luggage and passed through security. A couple of students had to pay a little more because their baggage was overweight.
Despite the fact that the flight was bumpy for me, it  was good for the rest of the people. The plane landed at none at the Edinburgh Airport. The weather was cold and it was raining.

While my classmates collected their luggage in the baggage reclaim I was looking at the train timetable to go to the city. In addition, as the train to the city was one hour later, we had enough time to buy some souvenirs.
Furthermore, there were several means of transport to go to other parts of the city and outskirsts, at any time. We bought a Day Ticket to visit it on a bus. At about £3.20 were paid by each of us. 

When we arrived at the hotel, we  dropped off our baggage in our rooms.


On the one hand, the ones were spacious and plenty of light came through the windows. 
On the other hand, the bathrooms and the wardrobes were small and narrow.

At midday, we had lunch in one of the most famous Starbucks called Standing Order, which was an old bank before becoming in a restaurant. We tasted the typical Scottish hamburgers and fish and chips. 

In the afternoon, we had to take an umbrella and put a warm coat and raincoat on if  we wanted to go sightseeing. We went to the Royal Mile where there was a woman with a red cape who led us to The Mary King's Close.

The second day, we got up early because after breakfast, we were visiting The Edinburgh Castle. At night, after eating in the Witchery, we went clubbing in Leith where there was a jazz bar called The Shore. It was awesome.
On the last day, we visited The Sterling Castle and The Williams Wallace Fort.

To conclude, we had an amazing experiencie. I highly recommed travelling there.

BILINGUAL

READING INTERMEDIATE

Residents of the European Union (EU) are becoming better and better at languages. Almost 50 percent of the EU population say they can speak at least one foreign language very well. That figure rises to nearly 80 percent for students. To celebrate its linguistic diversity, September 26 has become the official European Day of Languages. The day’s website shows a Slovak proverb that says: “The number of languages you speak is the number of times you are human”. This is to encourage all Europeans to brush up on their language skills.
The results of the “Eurobarometer” survey put Luxembourgers at the top of the language ability list. An amazing 99 percent of Luxembourg’s population is at least bilingual. Those with the poorest language skills are the Hungarians (29 percent) and British (30 percent). English is the most widely spoken foreign language, used by more than a third of the population. German (12 percent) is in second place followed by French (11 percent). European enlargement means Russian has risen to fourth place – tied with Spanish. The EU spends $36 million a year on language programs.
