New York

2. Write the summary of the book.

After 1800, more and more immigrants came to the United States from other countries. Many of them arrived in New York. Immigrants came from different countries at different time. New York is still an international city. In the last few years, many immigrants have moved to New York from Asia and South and Central America. A lot of Americans have never been to New York because they are afraid. Of course, tourist must be careful in a big city. In New York, there are still thieves in subway station and busy streets.

3. Write your feelings about the book in details.

For some years, it was quite expensive to film in New York. Some movie-makers even filmed New York stories in other big cities, like Toronto (See p 35)

How much does it cost to make one film in New York on average?

4. Write the words, phrases or sentences that impressed you most in the book and explain why they impressed you. Or you could write your questions about the book.

If you get in a taxi in New York, always look for driver's papers and number. A few taxi drivers do not have these and do not the city's rules. A ride in one of these taxis can be expensive or dangerous (See p 20)

New York's yellow taxi is famous, but we shouldn't take in a wrong taxi! ( )
