    It’s a long way from shanghai to London. It is the better and faster way to get there by air than by ship.

          Situation2: by bus

    Chongqing is not far from Chengdu. It takes us only several hours to get there by bus. it is faster by bus than by train.

    Beijing is far from Guangzhou. We can get there By train or by plane. It’s faster by plane, but it’s much more expensive. I think it’s better to get there by train.On the

train we can be comfortable and enjoy the beautiful scenes on the way there.

         Situation4: by boat/ship

    It is shorter by ship than by bus or train. At the same time, we can enjoy the beautiful scene on the sea.

Normal travel is simply for pleasure and is often bad for the environment while eco-travel is a way of traveling responsibly to protect the environment and of finding out what

can be done to help animals and plants as well as people.

       Work in groups of four. Imagine that the four of you are going on an eco-trip. Prepare role cards for the discussion and decide where you are going.
Each group member has to prepare reasons for visiting one of the places above.
       I think we should go to the Red River Village, because we can swim in the river; go boating on it; look at the bridge; go for walks along it; plant trees near it and we can

learn about water and the fish in the river; the birds by it; how to keep the water clean. If we visit the Red River Village we can help the villagers make money so that they can

take care of the river and the birds.

       I think we should go to the Snow Mountain, because we can go hiking in the mountain; go skiing in the winter; look at birds and other animals; plant trees on the

mountain and we can learn about nature; the birds and other animals;             the old trees in the mountain.

        If we visit the Snow Mountain we can help the people there to keep the mountain clean and to take good care of the birds and other animals.

  What should you do before writing?

  Look at the schedule for Sue’s trip. Imagine that you are Sue. Write two letters in which you describe what you are doing, what you will do and what you
have done. The first letter should be written on Friday and the second letter should be written on Sunday.
