Grade 9 Unit 5 Topic 3 Section A

(Kangkang has come to Susanna’s house and seen some beautiful pictures hanging on the wall.)
Kangkang: What beautiful pictures! What is it?
Susanna: Oh, that is Big Ben. Long ago, the queen of England knew that many clocks had different time. People were either early or late. She had it built so that everyone would have the same time. Now it is a symbol of England.
Kangkang: Oh! What about the building that looks like a huge sailing boat?
Susanna: That is a good description. It’s the Opera House in Sydney, Australia.
It’s the pride of Australians. Do you know the picture below it?
Kangkang: That’s the Statue of Liberty! It was designed by Gustave Eiffel as a gift from France to the USA. It stands in New York Harbor.
Susanna: That’s right, but do you know that Eiffel designed not only the Statue of Liberty but also the Eiffel Tower? He was a great leader in the arts.
Kangkang: Is this the Eiffel Tower?
Susanna: Yes, it was built for the International Exhibition of Paris in 1889.
Kangkang: I really hope I can visit some of these places some day.


A: It is a tower that/which is famous for its leaning. It is over 800years old. Do you know what it is?
B: Got it! It’s the Tower of Pisa in Italy.
