Learning activity 2

Evidence: The perfect city / town

Fuente: SENA

Imagine that in 10 years your city / town will be perfect. What will it be like? Think
about the problems your city has now and how they can be solved for it to be
perfect in 10 years.

Write a description of your city in 10 years. Use will and the vocabulary learned in
this learning activity. Highlight will-sentences with green and vocabulary words with
blue. Remember to use connectors and punctuation.

Take a look at the example below to help you get started.


"I think my city will be better in 10 years. Probably there will not be traffic jams
anymore. Also public transportation will be clean, efficient and organized. For
this to happen, the roads will have to be in perfect conditions.

After solving social problems and creating better job opportunities, it will be the
safest city in the world. In addition, we will have the best museums and art
galleries. Besides, there will be a lot of green areas and parks to enjoy. We will
have the best football team, not like the one we have now which performs
poorly. I believe people will be friendly. And finally, the most important aspect
will be to have more public universities, so everybody will have the chance to
study.

It will be as nice as a European city, but a lot more enjoyable and vibrant
though.

Description:
When considering our "perfect city" the first thing we thought about was physicial appearance. Our city
would be clean and environmentally friendly, everyone would have adequate space for living (space
between houses, yards etc) There would be designated space for parks, child-friendly spaces, and a city
square.

We also talked about the more administrative side of our perfect city. We decided that elected officials
should make up the government. We believe that taxes should be used to fund public projects, schools,
transportation system, and libraries. Gradual income tax should be applied, the more you make the
more you are taxed. There will be a certain amount of tax money, say 5%, that could be worked off
through service to the community. This is a very interesting idea - good thinking.

Education will be a top priority in our community. If we expect our citizens to be able to vote and take
care of our city it is our responsibility to educate them. Students would have to take a Voter/Civic
Education class that would teach them the basics of government official roles, how taxes work/what
they pay for, the social security system, and structure of government/what goes into it. We also want to
make it a priority to distinguish ourselves through our unique culture and history. We also want to have
a police force but place the main responsibility on a community crime watch system, and use the police
as a last resort.
