[00:02.19]Extract 1
[00:04.61]Listen to the descriptions of London and New York.
[00:08.64]people often compare the cities of London and New York.
[00:13.65]How do they really compare?Let's find out.
[00:17.59]First of all,a piece of history.
[00:20.44]People often assume1 that New York is a very young city.
[00:24.67]In fact,though,the first people lived there more than 11,000 years ago.
[00:30.21]London became a place to live just 2000 years ago.
[00:34.49]Another surprising fact relates to the weather.
[00:38.64]In London people always believe that it rains a lot.
[00:42.87]However,London has only 611 millimetres of rain each year,
[00:48.90]compared to 1129 millimetres in New York.
[00:53.67]New York has more extreme2 temperatures,though.
[00:57.41]The average temperature in January is Zero degrees centigrade3,
[01:02.47]compared to 4 degrees in London.And in summer the opposite is true.
[01:08.55]London has an average July temperature of 17 degrees,
[01:13.28]whilst New York has an average of 25.
[01:16.80]What about the population?
[01:20.25]London is almost double the size with more than 12 million people.
[01:25.58]There are 7 and a half million in New York.
[01:29.02]London is also twice as big with an area of 1620 square kilometres,
[01:36.26]compared to 800 square kilometres in New York.
[01:39.52]So,if you have a short summer holiday and you like warm wether,
[01:44.77]New York is the place for you.
[01:47.03]It's warmer and smaller,so you'll see more and enjoy the weather more,too!
[01:53.77]Extract 2
[01:56.41]Contradict the statements4 you hear.
[01:59.75]Example:The population of London is more than 15 million.
[02:05.83]No.The population of London is less than 15 million.
[02:10.76]1.The population of New York is less than 6 million.
[02:21.92]No.The population of New York is more than 6 million.
[02:32.18]2.The average temperature in New York is more than 30 degrees in July.
[02:45.99]No.The temperature in New York is less than 30 degrees in July.
[02:58.19]3.The area of London is more than 3000 square kilometres.
