IV. Word Smart
1. Read what guides tell tourists during their excursions in the capital cities and match them to the photos (p. 204-205). Say which of them you want to see and why.
Let’s stop at this picturesque place. It’s Griffin lake – a favourite place of those who live in Canberra. It’s good for canoeing and boating. You can also cruise round Lake Griffin on any weekday. The lake is extremely popular with kids. They have the time of their lives, swimming and sunbathing. Can such a rest leave anybody indifferent?
You are lucky to come to Canada in winter. I guess you adore sports and I’m dead sure skiing is your favourite one. So we won’t lose a chance and visit the Canadian ski museum. It’s a unique museum and it is worth seeing. I’m sure you’ll learn much interesting there. Let’s go then!
Ladies and gentlemen! Do you see that high, pencil-like obelisk of white marble over there? It is the Washington Monument, one of the tallest structures in the world, 555-feet tall, to be exact. You can get to the observation platform on its top by an elevator in 70 seconds, or by a stairway of 898 steps. Visitors can see the entire District of Columbia from its windows. If you happen to come there in spring you’ll see a picturesque cherry-tree festival. It’s really fantastic.
This ancient building is the genious unique creation of sir Christopher Wren. It is St. Paul’s Cathedral. You can climb up inside St. Paul’s dome and look down or visit the famous gallery that goes all the way round the inside of the dome. Don’t be surprised if people close the wall on the other side of the gallery – 32 meters away – can hear you talk. No wonder, it is called the Whispering Gallery, as even the quietest whisper can be heard dearly by everyone – no secrets here.
The Washington St. Paul’s Cathedral monument
Example: As for me, I’d like to see the Canadian ski museum, because I’m fond of skiing.
2. Think of the words that can go with the words unique and picturesque. Make up your own sentences will them.

Paul: I say, Lucy, have you heard the news about “London Quiz”?
Lucy: No. What about “London Quiz”?
Paul: Haven’t you heard? Everyone knows about it!

Lucy: So have I. He is the one who never grows up, isn’t he?
Paul: That’s right, that’s him. When I’m in London, I’ll certainly visit Kensington Gardens which is on the left bank of the river Thames, and then I’ll go to the right bank to have the view of a lifetime over London and the surrounding countryside. Guess where from.
Lucy: No idea. What do you mean?
Paul: It’s the London Eye, the largest observation wheel in the world.
From the top, you can see 36 Thames bridges!
