An Unusual Find

Last Saturday I went for a walk along the coastline. The weather was beautiful. The light wind blew into my face. The sea was calm.

As I was walking, I suddenly saw a strange object in the sand. I came closer to see what it was . To my big surprise, it was a green sealed bottle with something inside. I decided to open it. I pulled the cork and took a rolled paper out of the bottle. Perhaps, it was a message from the past.

I looked at the paper. I couldn't could not read what was written there. The letters were strange. I did not didn't know what to do. I knew I found something valuable. Fortunately, there was an anthropology museum in the town where I arrived for a holiday, so I headed up there. Was it a secret code to find a treasure?

Life in the Past

Many years ago, people had a different way of life. They did not have didn't have computers or the internet. They visited each other more often and talked a lot. They used phones and traditional ways of letter writing.

Do you remember how your parents went to the post office and sent letters to your relatives? Now it is difficult to imagine.

Besides, people didn't have smartphones. It was unusual to see a man walking along the street talking to a small box in his hands. People preferred to use street telephone booths. Now you can't find any of them in the streets.

Anyway, our life has completely changed since that time. Old things have been replaced by new ones.

Задания — огонь! Жаль только, что навык устной речи никак не проверишь здесь. Если хотите потренировать именно речь, то мне лично понравились Skyeng Talks: недорого и времени много не отнимает.

Отличный способ быстро проверить, помнишь ли ты какую-то тему по английскому или ее нужно повторить. Надеюсь, раздел будет пополняться новыми заданиями.
