Towns and places

There are many places to live all around the world. The place where we are born is called a place of birth. That place is written on our birth certificate, our ID card or passport. The place where we grow up, strongly influences our character and behaviour. Many important relationships are created there. The place of our studies is often not identicl with our place of birth. Nowadays, many young people choose to study in a different town or country.

There are man places all around the world where people would like to live or at least spent their holiday. There are lafre cities like Tokyo, London, Mexico but there are also out of way places like Siberia or Amazon jungle. Wherever people live they have oppinions about places, even though they have probably only seen them on pictures or TV.

We can divide places into: 1.Town 2.Village 3.Suburb

1) Suburbs – are residential areas around a city but often have different name from city.It is the place with houses and othr buildings(church,school,bank) but usually it is smaller than town. We can say it is situated on the outskirts of the city.

2)Villageis normally found in rural areas of town or a city where people live. There aren´t flats and many cultural or shopping opportunities.
