Six sentences have been removed from the article. Complete the article with the correct sentences (A–F). So where in the UK are you from? The UK has so many regional accents and dialects that it is often very difficult for visitors to identify them. (1) ……………………… They usually know from a person’s accent if he or she is from the South, the Midlands, the North or London. But you need to know an area quite well to be more accurate. In fact, language experts can sometimes guess the area a person was born and brought up in to within five kilometres! The English language is very rich in its variations, and most people are naturally proud of their local identity. Many people who live outside the UK think that there are basically two accents in English: posh and working class! (2) ……………………… If you watch a night’s TV in the UK, you can hear many of our regional accents in the popular soap operas! There is the famous East End of London accent in EastEnders, the Yorkshire accent in Emmerdale and the Lancashire accent in Coronation Street. There’s a Scottish detective series called Taggart where you can hear the accent from Glasgow – which is very different from the accent spoken by the people of the capital, Edinburgh. Many of the more famous accents have special names too – Cockney for the East End of London, Geordie for Newcastle and Scouse for Liverpool. Regional accents have developed over the centuries for a lot of different reasons and many of them are very difficult for people from outside the region to understand. (3) ……………………… Changes in language happen because people communicate with each other. If a community doesn’t have much contact with another community, then those changes don’t happen. (4) ……………………… For example, the accents and dialects of north and south Wales are different because of the mountains that divide them. (5) ……………………… People are fighting to keep these alive. The Welsh language is still very strong. It is spoken throughout Wales and is taught in schools. There are TV programmes completely in Welsh and the road signs are in both languages. Gaelic is still alive and well in Scotland, and there is even a campaign to protect Cornish, a language that people in the West of England spoke until about 150 years ago. So, what will happen to the languages and dialects of the UK over the next 100 years? (6) ……………………… Or will everyone sound the same? It will be interesting to see.  A  However, it is much more complicated than that. B  Will we still keep a local identity? C  We must also not forget that, as well as English, there are other completely different languages that still exist in the UK. D  The English of today is the result of different languages that invaders and settlers brought to England in the past. E  This is how different dialects and accents develop. F  Even British people themselves have problems!           / 6    3 of 5 8  Read the article again.

Sample answer
The photo on the left looks like a large city. It could be a capital
city because it looks very big and important. I can see lots of
big buildings and offices in the background. I can’t see any
houses because this must be the city centre. Perhaps people
live on the outskirts of the city.
The weather looks hot because people are wearing summer
clothes like shorts and T-shirts, not coats. It might be July or
August.
I can see shops and cafes and the people may be shopping or
perhaps it is their lunch break from work. There’s no traffic but
it’s still very busy. It looks like a fun place to live. Perhaps it is
expensive because it is a big city.
The other photo looks like a small village, perhaps in the
mountains. It looks very cold and very quiet – there are roads
but they’re covered in snow. The houses are made of stone
and they look very sweet and quite old. I can’t see any shops,
but perhaps there are small local shops like a bakery or a
grocery store. There aren’t any cars but I can see someone
walking down the hill to the river. They’re wearing very warm
clothes, and it looks difficult to walk through the snow.
It looks like a calm place to live and I think that the people
there have a healthy lifestyle.

Sample answer
Lorreto is a small city in the north of the country on the coast.
It’s quite small, but the population increases in the summer
when people come to stay here for their holidays because it
has a long sandy beach. Because it is in the north of the
country it gets quite cold in the winter and sometimes it snows.
It gets very hot in the summer and people go to the beach.
The city is beautiful and there is a historic part which has
ancient monuments. There is also a modern part which has a
shopping centre.
The interesting things to see in the city include a museum and
an art gallery and the old part of the city with the historic
monuments. There is also a sports centre and an open air
swimming pool for the summer. There are also several large
parks.
There are some nice restaurants which are very busy at the
weekends. The best restaurants and cafйs are in the port area
and there is a lively restaurant which is popular with young
people in the main square in the centre of the city.

Sample answer
The photo on the left looks like a large city. It could be a capital
city because it looks very big and important. I can see lots of
big buildings and offices in the background. I can’t see any
houses because this must be the city centre. Perhaps people
live on the outskirts of the city.
The weather looks hot because people are wearing summer
clothes like shorts and T-shirts, not coats. It might be July or
August.
I can see shops and cafes and the people may be shopping or
perhaps it is their lunch break from work. There’s no traffic but
it’s still very busy. It looks like a fun place to live. Perhaps it is
expensive because it is a big city.
The other photo looks like a small village, perhaps in the
mountains. It looks very cold and very quiet – there are roads
but they’re covered in snow. The houses are made of stone
and they look very sweet and quite old. I can’t see any shops,
but perhaps there are small local shops like a bakery or a
grocery store. There aren’t any cars but I can see someone
walking down the hill to the river. They’re wearing very warm
clothes, and it looks difficult to walk through the snow.
It looks like a calm place to live and I think that the people
there have a healthy lifestyle.
