    I like the parks in Britain, especially Hyde Park in London. The parks are always clean and some are really big, and it’s great to go for a walk and see all the trees in the centre of a city. There’s always something interesting to see or to do. Sometimes there are festivals where you can listen to music or watch a show. But you can also relax in the parks and just read a newspaper on a Sunday morning for example. The one thing I don’t like here is the food. It’s expensive, not very good and I can’t find any good cheap Italian restaurants.

      1. Hi Sara. Once again, your reading is pretty good and quite expressive. You still need to give more weight to your long vowels (trees, parks) and also be careful with the first syllable of “London” and also the sound of “some” (it’s the same sound). Also don’t pronounce the ‘l’ in “walk” and put the stress on the first syllable in “interesting”.
