Esercizio 3 pag. 151
Robert was a school boy in the local comprehensive school. His teacher was Mrs Brown.
Everyday Robert went to school by bus. He took the bus just outside his house, showed the
driver his card and sat near the window. He sometimes talked to his neighbour, other times he
preferred to read his school book or he just watched out of the window.
When he was at school, he listened to the lessons or did his class-work. He was a good student.
Yesterday at 9 o’clock Robert was still on the bus. He was watching out of the window. There
were some people around a motorcycle. The boy who was driving the motorcycle was fine, but
the motorcycle was seriously damaged because a car had hit it.
Robert was worried because he was late for the first lesson.
When he arrived at school, Mrs Brown asked him why he was late and he told her the reason.
Mrs Brown was nice and told him to sit down.
