The ubiquity of freeways has made it quite convenient to drive to the working place. At the same time, an increasingly number of people prefer life in the suburb and countryside for more trees and grass, but less noise and population.

  49. Additional Listening A: Is your city a historical place? B: Not really. 200 years ago, it was just a small insignificant village. A: How did it grow into such a large place? B: Large deposits of coal were found nearby and so many industries located themselves here. The village quickly grew into a key industrial centre. A: As the city grew, it must have absorbed many villages nearby. B: Yes, it did. The names of those villages survive as the names of parts of the city. A: I see. Are there any buildings more than 200 years old in your city?

  50. Additional Listening B: Oh, yes. Several of the buildings from the villages still survive. Many of them were inns for travelers and today they survive as pubs. There was a castle near one village, so our city has a castle too. A: Really? So your city does have some old history after all.
