Student’s Worksheet 2 Back to school – Lesson 2 1. Read the article and number the places 1–5 in the order you would like to visit them.

Five places to see before you die Our reporters have travelled the globe and compiled a list of the most amazing places to visit, from natural landmarks, ancient structures, to modern man-made wonders.

Maldives

Maldives is the smallest Asian country and the Earth’s lowest country, with an average ground level of 1.5 metres above sea level. It consists of 1,192 coral islands spread over 90,000 square kilometres in the Indian Ocean, near the equator. The place is a true paradise with its blue seas, white sandy beaches and palm trees. The coral reef around the islands is home to sea turtles, whales, dolphins and over 1,000 species of fish.

The Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications built at different periods of time, with the first sections constructed over 2,000 years ago. It meanders from east to west of the country, across deserts, mountains and grasslands. The wall is nearly 9,000 kilometres long. You can go hiking on some sections of the wall or you can take a chairlift. If you are lucky, you can see wild animals that live in the habitats along the wall: bears, giant pandas or even a tiger.

The Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is a canyon carved by the Colorado River in the state of Arizona, in the USA. You can study the Earth’s geological history in the colourful layers of rock exposed by the river. The Grand Canyon is massive; it is 446 kilometres long, 29 kilometres wide at its widest place and 1.6 kilometres deep. Travellers seeking adventure can hike, ride a mule or take a river trip through the canyon.

Dubai

Dubai is one of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates. It is famous for its amazing architectural projects, such as Burj Al Arab – a 7 star hotel shaped like a sailboat, Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world, measuring over 828 metres and the World Islands – artificial islands constructed in the shape of a world map. In Dubai you can also explore the desert by taking a jeep or a camel tour, and you can try some unusual sports such as sand skiing or sand boarding.

Angel Falls

Angel Falls is a waterfall in Venezuela, South America. It is the world’s highest waterfall, with a height of 979 metres. Although Angel Falls is the country’s top tourist attraction, it is not easy to reach. The waterfall is located in the jungle with no roads. Visitors must take an aeroplane, then go on a river trip and finally hike in the jungle to the lookout point for Angel Falls.
