Model Answer: This allows bats to detect, localize and even classify their prey in complete darkness. COM We often had birthday parties together there, so it was the perfect place for us to, you know, say goodbye to our high school and start a new life. Model Answer 1: Sample Answer: Yes, there are a few public swimming pools. Same thing with our characteristics.
Yes, I quite like them. If you are on a train you can relax and look out the window, read, use your lap top - it's all quite comfortable. On the bus it's more difficult to do those things because there is less space and the movement can make you travel sick too. The only problem with trains in my country is that they are often delayed or late. That can ruin your journey. It's usually on long trips across the country if I want to visit friends or I have an appointment somewhere.
For short journeys around where I live or to work it's much easier to drive or take the bus. As I said before, you can do things such as read on the train so it's good for long journeys. I'm not quite sure, let me think. It was a while ago now. I think the last time was last year when I went up to see some friends I had not seen for a while in the north of the country.
Yes, that was it. It was a journey of about 3 hours and I had to change trains once during the journey. The first train was a bit crowded and noisy as I think there were people on there going to a football match, but it was an ok trip most of the way.. Actually I'd say I'm not too good!
I don't really have a system in place to organize things. I know some people have an electronic organizer or use some device to plan what they are doing but I don't do that. But I always make sure I am on time for appointments and things like that, and I meet deadlines and get things done. As I said, I don't have any specific system in place to manage my time.
For example, if I am at work and I have a lot of cases, I just go through them each day and decide which I need to tackle first. At work we do have an online diary which I guess I use, so in that sense I do manage my time to an extent. I think it is probably when you are at work.
When out of work, it's not really going to affect things too much, or at least only yourself, if you are late to meet friends or for an appointment, or if you are getting things done in your house. But at work, it will cause problems if you don't manage your time effectively because you could miss deadlines or miss appointments.
You could lose your job. So at work is when it is most important to manage your time. I mostly like to read biographies. I'm not sure why but it is interesting to read about people's real lives, especially when they have had interesting lives and have had to deal with many problems. I do read fiction as well, but I often find it difficult to get hold of a book that I really like. I also like reading about books to do with current affairs.
Not really, no. Actually I didn't read that much when I was a child, but if I did it was mainly fiction books, such as fairy tales. Fantasy things. I think any time is ok, but when I read I like to concentrate, so I can't read for a short time like on a bus ride like some people do.
I like to put time aside to enjoy it. So if I have some free time at the weekend I might read for a few hours. And I nearly always read before I go to bed - this really helps me to sleep.
No, not that I know of. I live in a small town so I don't think there are any, though we do have a few museums and other cultural institutions. In our capital city there are quite a few art galleries, however. I've never been that interested in art to be honest, so not really. We were taken to one as part of a trip when I was at school. It has a lot of paintings from famous artists from our country. It was quite interesting to see I guess but I've not been to any since.
I think it depends really. If possible they should be free because if people do have to pay they are less likely to go and see it. But on the other hand these things cost money so a small fee may be necessary if it can keep the art gallery going and keep it open. Ideally though the government should pay for this as I believe this kind of thing is paid for by our taxes. Yes I can. I think the most common type of reading is scanning because we have scanned through different reading materials all our lives.
To be able to arrange events from the story into chronological order, one must have done an intensive reading. A perfect example of a good twist can be found in the movie The Sixth Sense, a film starring Bruce Willis.

Dave has recently completed his postgraduate degree at Melbourne University in Australia and he's currently looking for a job in Vietnam, well, he told me that he would like to become an IELTS teacher, despite the fact that he holds an MBA, I guess teaching English has always been one of his passions.
I have to say that I don't know him really well, because we only had a few brief conversations at the local English club, but he seems like a fascinating person that I would like to get to know better in the future.
Anyway, when it comes to his personality Honestly, as I've said earlier, we've only had a few brief conversations, so I don't know him really well However, I would guess that he's a very friendly and approachable individual, in fact, he actually made an effort to break the ice because I was just too shy to strike up a conversation. Well, in terms of the core reasons why I think we could get along quite well Firstly, we are both passionate about English, actually, he had just scored a band 8 in his IELTS test and it would be great if he could give me all the advice that I need to be at the same level.

This passion grew in me just few years ago when I watched a very inspiring movie about Chinese history and culture. Then I decided that I had to learn Chinese in order to explore more about this incredible nation. Besides, knowing more than one language is very beneficial to not only my study but also my future career path. Therefore, in order to achieve my target, I will register for a Chinese course for beginners, which is held 3 times a week.
I also intend to download many apps on my phone with the aim to study at home by myself. I have drawn my own schedule so that I can make time for self - study, at least 1 hour per day.
As currently, I have a full — time job, I am so busy that there are days when I have to work overtime or travel faraway to meet clients. Moreover, after a tiring day, I often feel deadly tired and find it hard to concentrate on studying at home.

The New Year is a very special traditional holiday in my country. It was probably my most favorite holiday when I was a small girl as my family had a lot of activities to celebrate this occasion. Among them, making the X cake made me excited the most. The X cake is made of glutinous rice, green beans and fat pork, wrapped in banana leaves in the shape of a square. I often played with my older brother when my parents prepared the ingredients for the cake.
And then, my father lit a small fire to boil the cake overnight. COM It was perhaps the only time of the year when I was allowed to stay up late. While my family was sitting around the warm fire, my grandmother would tell the old legendary story about the X cake to commemorate the filial affection of one prince to his father and remind us of the long — lasting tradition of our country. In recent years, my family has not had enough time for making the Xcake on our own.

The structure of Green City is not dissimilar to that of most buildings in Canada nowadays, with the bottom half used as a shopping center and the top half occupied by apartments. COM One feature that makes the building unique is that its trade center offers Canadian products only, with a view to promoting domestic products to Hanoi people and also to supporting national manufacturers.
At the entrance of the building, if you look to the right, you can easily find a store named Masterchef bread, which serves traditional bread to people who just do not have enough time to go inside, so they line up waiting to pay. In spite of its prime location, however, Paradise Green City offers a reasonable price for its apartments, which are affordable for many middle-income families. From the building, we can enjoy the breathtaking scenery.
So, if you are planning to find a place with a beautiful and peaceful view, or simply want to buy something traditional, Paradise Green City may be a good choice. In fact, I personally find that it resembles ABC, a modern building nearby.

On arriving at the countryside, which is quite secluded from the hustle and bustle of the city life, we were greatly impressed by the picturesque landscapes there.

My friend acted as a tour guide as he was well accustomed to the local lifestyles and tourist attractions there. We took the motorbikes to tour the city land stopped at some street vendors to taste the local cuisine, which I personally found tasty and delicate.

Also, it went well with two kinds of dipping sauces and was served with baguettes. There was also a salad, which gave it a mild taste to contrast with the spicy flavours. The idea of a barbecue originated in America, and for us it was a novel and sophisticated meal. What I really enjoyed was that we could watch as it was cooked in front of us.

I was shocked, because it was dark outside but they knew exactly where to go without mistakes.
Moreover, they went out only at night. I thought bats are interesting not because they can fly in the dark since I know they are nocturnal animals. COM capture is their unusual eye-sight, like another nocturnal animal, owls. But the truth is because of their echolocation. Bat echolocation is a perceptual system where ultrasonic sounds are emitted specifically to produce echoes.
By comparing the outgoing pulse with the returning echoes the brain and auditory nervous system can produce detailed images of the bat's surroundings.
This allows bats to detect, localize and even classify their prey in complete darkness.
