Roleplay the dialogue and answer the questions below.

(I = Interviewer; P = Paulo)

I: Do you like your city?

P: Oh yes, I feel lucky to be living in a city that’s so big and exciting. I love looking out of my apartment window over the high-rise buildings.

I: What’s the city centre like?

P: Some people say it’s too noisy and crowded, but I love that. There’s always something to see and do. We also have the most famous beach in the world – Copacabana Beach. Then, on the other side of the city, there are beautiful mountains. The highest one is called Corcovado, and it has the famous statue of Christ. If you look down at the city from there, the view is spectacular.

I: What’s the weather like?

P: It’s great most of the time. The only time I don’t like Rio much is in the summer: it’s too hot and humid.


(I = Interviewer; G = Gisela)

I: Do you like your city?

G: Yes, it’s wonderful. I think my city has everything.

I: What’s the architecture like?

G: It’s a mixture of old and new with plenty of shops for everybody. The castle is the most famous monument, and at night it looks amazing.

I: What’s the nightlife like?

G: It’s a young city because of the university, so there are plenty of cheap restaurants and interesting cafйs and bars. It’s got a great nightlife.

I: And what are the people like?

G: Well, some people are a bit reserved, but in general they’re really friendly.


(I = Interviewer; A = Armelle)

I: Where do you live?

A: Well, I live in a small village with my parents. My grandparents live here too, and my aunts and uncles. In fact, I think I’m related to about fifty per cent of the people in my village.

I: What’s your village like?

A: It’s very pretty. The countryside is beautiful, and the air is lovely and clean. But it’s too quiet. I find it so dull and boring here – there aren’t any discos or cinemas.

I: What are the people like?

A: Oh, they’re lovely, but there aren’t many young people. I want to go and live in the city. Soon.


(I = Interviewer; L = Luigi)

I: What do you think of your city?

L: It is a very special place. There is nowhere else in the world like my city – it’s so romantic.

I: What’s the city centre like?

L: The buildings are beautiful, and we have San Marco, one of the most famous churches in the world. San Marco Square is wonderful, and during carnival in February Venice is the best place in the world to be.

I: Do you like living here?

L: No, I really hate living here. It’s horrible. There are too many tourists everywhere.

I: Oh dear. What are the shops like?

L: Well, because of the tourists the shops are too expensive and the canals are dirty and polluted. My city is not big enough for all these people. Why don’t they leave us in peace?
