Hello everybody, how are you today? I'm fine because when you are listening to this CD our new English class has started. This means I will meet new interesting people from Saxony or other parts of Germany. Where exactly are you from? What do you do? Why do you want to practise and improve your English? There are so many questions I'd like to ask, but let me tell you something about myself first:
I'm Sue Darville and I live in a suburb of Bristol in the south west of England. Bristol is a very large city and it's famous for both its university and its connection with the world of hot air ballooning. Have you ever flown in a hot air balloon? It's an amazing experience. Every summer people from all over the world come to Bristol to take part in the international hot air balloon fiesta. If you like I can tell you more about this wonderful event. In the meantime you can tell me something about your situation. Are you from a small town or a large city? What is your area famous for? I have heard a lot about Leipzig and its international trade fair. There is a lot of information on Leipzig on the Internet and much of it is in English. What do you do? What is your job? I have two jobs: I work for a financial company as a financial advisor but I'm also the co-founder of English-Online, a British-German company. Both my jobs are very interesting as every day something new happens.
What about your job? Is it interesting? How much time do you spend at work and what do you do in your freetime to relax?
I wish you a lot of fun in your English class and say goodbye until our next session.
