UK: The Picturesque Villages of Goring & Streatley

The video (slideshow) below is a description of the villages of Goring and Streatley in the British countryside. You can listen to the video for listening practice, and/or you can download the transcript for reading practice. Make sure that you study the words and grammar that you are not familiar with.

I also hope that you will use the transcript as a model for your own writing about a place that you know well and would like to recommend to visitors from overseas. Try to use some of the words, phrases and sentence patterns that you have never used before. For practice, follow the transcript quite closely, so that you can learn how to write in this style.
