A SPEECH ABOUT MY HOMETOWN
My lovely hometown is located on the south shore of an island. It's a small town with only about
9,000 people and an area of about 3.8 square miles.
First, I want to talk about the people in the neighborhood. Generally speaking, people are very nice here, especially in summer. I feel that in summer everyone is in a great mood, and very generous. For example, one summer afternoon, I was at the gas station filling up my car and was short of money. Generously an old gentleman gave me the money to pay the gas attendant. That's the type of people you can expect from my hometown.
The greatest part about the town, in my opinion, is the location. The Great Bay is five minutes away from my house and it's fantastic. Another great thing is how close everybody lives to each other. With it being such a small town, all my friends live five minutes away, which is a great advantage to me and everyone else. Lastly, the nightlife is great. On any Saturday night every bar is packed with people, so there's always something going on.
So far I've explained the good side of my hometown, but there are also some boring things about it. It is great in summer, but it is a different story in winter. When winter comes around, the town turns into a ghost town. This is because there is nowhere to go. The only thing we have is a shopping center. It would be nice if we had a few more options to choose from.
1. My lovely hometown is located on the north shore of an island. （）
2. Once I was at the gas station filling up my car and didn't have enough money with me.（）
3. I don't think it a great advantage that all my friends live five minutes away.（）
4. On any Saturday night every bar is full of people.（）
5. When winter comes around, we still have many options to choose from. （）
Lilian Hanson, a college students, expects to graduate in about two years. What makes Mrs. Hanson different from her classmates is her age—73 years. She has been studying at college, a few courses at a time, for 27 years.
When Lilian Hanson graduated from high school, she went to the bank to borrow money for the further education. The banker gave her no encouragement.
