Popffero used to be a small quiet town on the south coast of England. But it has become a crowded and busy tourist resort now. They're completely destroyed its old atmosphere. The small old houses have been pulled down, and tall buildings have been put there instead. They're also built a big hotel in the middle of town. The narrow streets have been widened and resurfaced, so the big trees on the two sides of the streets have been cut down.

The large area of grass land in the suburbs of the town has been turned into an ugly car park. Even the old comer shop isn't there any more. It has been replaced by a big department store. And there is an expensive restaurant where there used to be an old tea shop. Many people in Popffero are happy with the changes as there are more jobs for them. But some people don't like the changes they miss the quiet and peaceful life of the old town.

(Làm việc từng đôi. Thảo luận những thay đổi ở thành phố hay làng quê của em.)

Trả lời:

In my hometown, There have been a lot of changes and improvements in recent years.

In the past, the school was very small and low. In rainy days, schoolchildren had to study in the dark and get wet because of the leaks in the roofs, but now ThE school is a big three-floor building with lots of modern equipment and a large library.

In the past, a great number of streets were narrow or with potholes (ổ gà). They were flooded when there were heavy rains. Now they are raised and widened with light posts on the both sides.

In the past, the hospital comprised old houses, but now it is replaced by tall and modern air-conditioned buildings.

In the past, there was only an old market with a low and dark house. Now there are some tall and modern supermarkets and big department stores offering a large choice of various goods to shoppers.

And a remarkable change in my hometown is the big park in the centre, where people can go for fresh air or pleasure after a day’s hard work.
