Green Plan in Wonder City

Make new out of the old!

Since 1996, Wonder City has started a green plan and has been greatly successful in many ways. Places that were not used anymore, like railways, factories, and open lands, have been changed and brought to new life. They have now become parks, restaurants, museums, or shopping centers. They look fresh and clean with trees, flowers, and pieces of art. Olde River, for example, is now a pink belt in the spring with born-to-smiles on both of its sides. They are beautiful and smell great. Many people take a walk or go bicycling along the banks of the river. Because of this plan, the city has become cleaner and younger. Every year in May, a big green festival is celebrated in Wonder City. People from other cities go to the festival to learn how to make their own cities more beautiful.

36.
What is the reading about?
The history of a river.
A vacation plan.

Using closed factories.

Dear Julia,

It's been two months since I came to England. I have settled down and started to like the life here. I have made several new friends. They are from different countries: Japan, Germany, and Russia. English is the only language we can use for communication. These friends are my classmates, and we also live in the same house. So we are 39 all daystudying, playing basketball and going shopping. It's very interesting to go to the supermarket. People from different countries enjoy different foods. Some of the foods are very 40 to me.

Could you come to England for a vacation this summer? You would love to meet my new friends.
