Here are five famous sites from around the world.
What do you know about them ?
|Which site do you want to visit most|
|What is the weather like there (use adverbs)|
|What can you do there ?|
|What could be a problem ?|
I would like to visit all the sites. However, if I have to choose one, I will visit St Petersburg in Russia.
St Petersburg is a very beautiful city, with many amazing buildings. The city is very famous, and I have read about it in many books.
I think the weather is quite hot in summer, and also it stays very light, even at night. However, it can be extremely cold in winter.
St Petersburg has so many museums and galleries. I want to see all of them. Also it would be fun to walk around and take many photos.
I don’t speak Russian so that could be a problem if people can’t speak English. Also, it may be extremely cold, so I will need a lot of thick clothes. Finally, I will need to buy some Russian money.

Regular verbs add -ed or -d in the past tense.
