    Ann: Hi, Susie, haven't seen you for a long time! What have you been doing? Where have you been

    hiding?

    Susie: I've been working on my talk about Wales for the last week and spent many hours in the

    library.

    Ann: Wales? What can be interesting about that part of Britain? No big cities, no picturesque

    scenery, no interesting facts on the history of the country.

    Susie: Aren't there? You can't imagine, Ann, how wrong you are here. The book I'm reading says:

    "Though visitors don't need passports to cross the border from England into Wales, they soon realize

    that they are entering a country with its own geography, culture, traditions and language."

    Ann: What do you mean? Don't the Welsh speak English?

    Susie: They do. But the Welsh language is spoken widely, especially in the north of the country and

    it is still the first language for many people. By the way English is taught side by side with Welsh in

    schools.

    Ann: Is Welsh different from English?

    Susie: Very much so. Welsh is one of the Celtic1 languages, like Scottish and Irish Gaelic.2 Even if

    your English is fluent you won't be able to understand Welsh.

    Ann: Interesting. And what about the cities? I hear that Wales is agricultural; there are few cities

    there, rather small and unimportant.

    Susie: Let's not argue, but look up in the book I'm reading. I know at least one big city in Wales. It's

    Cardiff," its capital and the main port.

    Ann: (looking through the book) You are right. It says: "Cardiff is an industrial city, which also has

    a castle, a cathedral, a university. There are other big towns in Wales too, Swansea and Newport

    among them." OK. But what about the scenery, the history, the culture?

    Susie: The west coast, mid Wales and North Wales are wild and beautiful. Wales has high

    mountains, including Mount Snowdon, the second highest mountain in Britain.

    Ann: I have always thought that Wales is a land of green fields, forests and farms.

    Susie: And you have been right. But it is also a land of mountains and valleys, streams and

    waterfalls. In North Wales you can follow mountain paths for miles and miles.

    Ann: Tell me a few words about Mount Snowdon.

    Susie: Got interested? OK. In summer, when the sun is shining, Snowdon looks very peaceful and

    beautiful. A little train runs to the top and the walk is not at all hard. But in winter the mountains can

    become very dangerous.

    Ann: But do climbers go there?

    Susie: They do, but every year climbers get lost in bad weather or fall and injure themselves. When

    this happens, the Mountain Rescue Service1 has to go out to look for the climbers.

    Ann: I see. And what about Welsh traditions and the history of the country?

    Susie: Sorry, Ann. I've got to run. Here are my notes. I made them during the lecture by Mr Roger

    Davis, a visiting professor from Wales. If you're really interested you can look through my notes.

    They are all on Welsh traditions and culture. Though they are very brief you can find them

    useful.
