My town

My Town – Newquay

by Alex Howarth, 14

I live in Newquay. It’s a small town on the Atlantic coast in the south of England. It has got great beaches and is the best place to surf in the UK. There are lots of surf schools where you can learn how to surf. I go surfing with my friends every weekend. My favourite place is Fistral Beach.

I love Newquay because there are lots of other things to do as well as surfing. If you like water sports, you can go kayaking, water-skiing or coasteering. Coasteering is different because it is rock climbing, jumping into the sea and swimming in the same activity, but you should always go with a special instructor.

If you like animals you can also visit the Blue Reef Aquarium and see lots of different fish and even sharks. You can also go horse riding on the beach or visit Newquay Zoo. There are lots of other attractions too like mini golf and bowling. Come and see for yourself!

Hi guys, I'm from Vietnam. I live in Ninh Hoa town - a small town in Khanh Hoa province. The center of town is 33 km from Nha Trang city to the North. It's very beautiful and peaceful. Specially, there have many types of food which are very delicious and famous, such as: fish noodles, spring rolls, coconut ...,. I am sure that you will love them. Moreover,you can visit one of the most beautiful beaches in Khanh Hoa when you go here - Doc Let beach. It is called Doc Let because it has pure white sand dunes running tens of meters high above the ocean line, separating the mainland from the sea. From the mainland, to reach the sea, people only have to overcome the sand dunes, so tired that they have to "drag" on the sand. Besides, you can also visit fishing villages, salt fields, Hon Khoi and Hon Heo areas... There also have many interesteing things that you can feel all ony when you come here. I believe that you will love Ninh Hoa like me.

I love the way how Alex introduces his hometown, he understands where he was born and be willing to administer to everyone around him. For me, i was born and raised near by the beautiful coastal city but i am still not really aware of this place, after read through Alex's introductory article i know that i need to know my hometown clearly and to introduce for everyone around me

I come from Cam Lam, a district of Khanh Hoa province, Viet Nam. Actually, there are just fields for the kids to fly their kites, play soccer,... in the afternoon, and nowhere else special to spend your time relaxing. However, if u like swimming, u have to ride 7km to Bai Dai beach, the most famous beach in Cam Lam.

Hi! I'm sorry but we don't have a picture of this sport. But if you do an internet search for 'coasteering' you can find pictures. I'm sure it will make sense when you see it! :)
Best wishes, Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

I currently live in Reading in the UK. Reading is a big city near London. I relly like the place where I currently live, I can go outside and meet up with my friends in town then go shopping or go to the park and play basketball with them. I relly like walk around in the park or around my town. I live in Reading only one year and I'd like to find some really interesting place in my new town. I've found a really beautiful place when I walked with my best friend near the Thames River and when I walked with my mother through the forest near my town. I really love nature. If you never been to Reading you should visit my town as soon as possible.

I live in Dar es salaam. It's takes place in East Africa. My town is near the Hint ocean. I like to swim due to keep me strong so i go to beach in order to swim on weekend with my friends.If you want to do another water sport you can do it absolutely.
There is a big zoo in my town. When you visit to there you will find a chance to see wild animals by naked eyes.Also, yo can try to new traditional foods, fruits etc. May favorite beverage is sugar candy. It is beneficial for my health. I think that you should try it.
Finally, there are a lots of places that natural in my town. When you feel stress or when you want to be alone you can go to these place to get rid of stress or to rest. My favorite place is Hawaii beach. I like to watch to rise sun in there.
