7.      Imagine that you are visiting Torquay for one day only. What would you
do there?
If I visited Torquay for one day only, I would choose one of the hundred houses displaying B & B signs. I would not choose luxury hotels because I am not rich enough to afford them. I would pass the day on the beach. I would have refreshments sitting in a hired deck chair. In spite of my great interest, I would not walk along the miles of winding cliff paths and enjoy the scenery and the healthiest air because I have to go to my office tomorrow.  I am not a sportsman, so I would not enjoy the opportunities for different sports. After a day in the open air, I would go to one of the summer variety shows because I like jokes and music very much. If I had some more time, I would watch the model railway because I like realistic things very much.
Writing:
Write part of a magazine article describing your town and what visitors can do there. Situated in the valley, surrounded by beautiful green hills, Kathmandu is one of the most popular cities in Nepal. It provides different kinds of entertainment and cultural shows. Visitors can choose between luxurious five- star hotels and comfortable but less expensive guesthouses. There are hundreds of lodges to pass the nights cheaply.
There are a lot of cheap as well as expensive hotels at Nagarkot for those who want to pass time amid nature. The sunrise as well as the sunset can be enjoyed from here. The valley with many winding streams looks like a bowl. The windig paths over hills around reminds you of the earlier stages of human civilization. In the valley there are three famous cities filled with temples. Once you visit one city you don’t like to leave it. During major festivals every street attracts you equally. There is a golf club near the airport and a swimming pool at Balaju.
After a day in the open air, there’s a lot to do in the evenings, too. There are plenty of discos, bars, casinos, a theater and cinemas.
