  2. Hi Ilya
    I would like to visit Moscow one day. Remember that Russia has only one capital city so we should say that it is THE capital city of Russia. Also think about your use of comparatives and superlatives – biggest, bad etc. I would like to see the underground in Moscow as I understand it is very beautiful.

  3. Hi Anthony!

    I would like to tell you about my city. Moscow is a capital of Russia, although it is the biggest city in Europe. Actually population of Moscow is 15 m. people or so. It is in the east of Russia about 700 km from St. Petersburg. It is on the river Moscow. The city is famous for historical places, squares, museums and theaters. Although Moscow is well known like a business center of Russia. There are a lot of biggish Russian and international companies in Moscow. Moscow is locateded on about 7 hills. One of the biggish hill is a Vorobeve Gori. You could go to Vorobyeve Gori otherwise you have not seen spectacular views of Moscow. There are a huge number of shopping malls and street markets in Moscow. However it is one of the reason why my city have baddish traffic congestion. Another problem is huge number of cars. As a result there is a lot of air pollutions in Moscow. Moscow is overcrowded and bad for traffic despite an underground system and public transport.

  4. Here is a medical joke.

    A patient suffering from a strange bug goes to see his doctor. The doctor says, “The test results have come back and I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news and some really bad news. The bad news is, it’s terminal – you have just one day left to live”.
    “oh, my goodness!”, said the patient. “What coul;d possibley worse that that?”
    “Well, we tried to call you yesterday, but we couldn’t get hold of you.”

    Can you tell me a medical joke? If you don’t know any, you could try and find one on the internet

    1. An old woman stuck in bed with a high fever calls her doctor.
      “Doctor I’m sick, I have a high fever.”
      The doctor asks her: “Are your teeth chattering?”
      The old lady: “Please, wait a second … No, they are still on the bedside table!”

    1. Hi Anthony,
      I had a very important meeting last june and I worked for this meeting for 2 weeks. 3 weeks before the meeting I called the secretary and made a reservation for big meeting room. Reservations are very important in my company, bacause all meeting rooms are always busy so you must make a reservation for meeting. In the meeting day I went to the meeting room to make preparation but the meeting room was full. I called the secretary back and I noticed that she absolutely forgot it. I was very angry but I wouldn’t be able to cancel the meeting because I had invited a lot of people from different cities. So, I asked the people in the meeting room to end their conversation and leave the meeting room. I was so lucky because they accepted it so, I could do my meeting in that room.

    2. My wrost ever journey happened three years ago when I went to Rome with 3 of my friends to go to a big music festival.
      There are a lot of young people that go to Rome for this festival every year from every part of Italy, so when we took the train to return home it was totally full and we had to stay in front of the door of the toilette for all the time of the journey.
      Beyond this, in normal situation it takes about 4 hours to go from Rome to Parma, but that time there were delays so it took about 8 hours.
      When I got home I put my clothes in the wash machine and my mother said that it was better if I put in myself too.

      1. Hi Marialaura
        I remember journeys like this from when I lived in Italy. We would normally say that the train was completely full. We would also say that we had to stand or sit infront of the toilet or next to the toilet for the whole journey.
        In your last sentence you could say, “when I got home, I put my clothes in the washing machine and my mother said that it would be better if I put myself in as well.
        All mothers have the same sense of humour, don’t they?
