What's it like to live in your country?

Good afternoon, learners!


Here in Berlin, it's a very interesting place to live. There's tonnes of history, great places to party, and a rich and diverse range of cultures. Public transport is very efficient, food is affordable, and rent is not outlandish.

What is it like to live in your country?

"There's tonnes of history, great places to party, and a rich and diverse range of cultures. Public transport is very efficient, food is affordable, and rent is not outlandish. "

"The opposite"

@Adel, Algeria lacks history and cultural diversity, there are not places to party, transportation is inefficient, food is expensive and rent is outlandish???:/ I know, many Algrians and non-Algerians don't like life in Algeria. But I suspect, your problem is not what Micheál described, but somehting else.

@Micheál, I dont' know:)

It is raining, there is a lot of hedgehogs this year and due to the global warming (most likely) I see some new bird species which i don't recognize instead of waht I used to see in Moscow in summer.

Here is Vietnam, Vietnam is an incredibly diverse country, especially about food. this place have 3 regions: Northern, Central and Southern regions,  and each place is quite different with the other regions  but very delicious. People can easy to enjoy food at street corners and pavements like Phở (noodles), Nem Rán ( spring rolls), and Bánh cuốn ( rice noodle rolls), Vietnam street food is very safe and good taste

My writing skills is very bad, so please edit my post to show me my errors.

Vietnam sounds amazing, Ngan! Your writing skills are not very bad, but here are some suggestions:


The noun ""skills"" is plural, so should we say "My writing skills is very bad" or "My writing skills are very bad"?



Also, food from Vietnam is Vietnamese food. When you describe things from your country, you use the adjective of your country. For example:

The Vietnamese landscape is beautiful

The Vietnamese language is very interesting.

Vietnamese people have a fascinating culture.

It's the same thing with other countries too. We can talk about British food, German culture, American music, the Chinese economy, etc.


And with the verb "different" we use the prepositions "than", "from" or "to" in most cases.


Hope this helps!
