SUBIECTUL I, READING COMPREHENSION (30p)
Read the text below:
Hi Ellie,
Im so pleased you can come surfing in August! Paul, Rose and Kevin are coming too, so there
will be five of us. Weve decided to return to New Sands, because the surf board hire is so cheap
there.
Im starting to think about accommodation. We wont camp again after last year! I hated staying
in a tent in all that rain!
Kevin wants to hire a caravan. There are some nice ones with 3 bedrooms, showers and cooking
facilities. The problem is, none of the caravan parks take short bookings in the summer. The
minimum stay is a week. Its a shame because there are several nice parks near the beach.
Theres a youth hostel in New Sands. Its the cheapest option after camping, and theres a big
kitchen and dining room where we can cook. The problem is, accommodation is in dormitories
and I dont really want to sleep with strangers.
There are a few guest houses in New Sands. Some have triple rooms, so wed only need to book
two rooms. Theyre not expensive, but we wouldnt be able to cook there. Wed have to eat out at
restaurants, or eat sandwiches for every meal! Well have to book soon if we choose that option,
because many guest houses are already full. The hotels in New Sands are far too expensive, even
though Id love to stay at the Sunrise Pavilion with its rooftop pool!
Let me know which option you prefer.
Cheers,
Natalie
