Reasons for daily travel
· Why do people need to travel every day?
People need to travel for lots of different reasons. Almost everybody has to travel to work, so they can earn money and provide for their families. If a person is lucky, then they will live very close to the place where they work, so they can travel on foot or by bicycle. Sometimes, however, people live very far away, so they must travel by bus, train, car, or even sometimes by plane or boat! Lots of people also travel to see friends and family members, who might live in a different city, or even a different country. But often people just like to travel for fun, to go to somewhere new, or to see a famous tourist site or place of natural beauty.

· What problems can people have when they are on their daily journey, for example to work or school? Why is this?
When people are on their daily travels, there's always the possibility of meeting traffic jams. This will cause people to be late for school or work. This phenomenon has been down to the increasing cars. It is a real challenge in a city with so many people and cars. To solve this problem, governments are encouraging people to use public transport or walk. All these are to raise environmental awareness and reduce congestion.

· Some people say that daily journeys like these will not be so common in the future. Do you agree or disagree? Why?
I agree that in the future, people's daily journeys will be reduced. In recent years, accompanied by the wide spread of network, people are spending more time working and playing at home. More and more people are telecommuting one or more days a week as opposed to going to office every day. In addition, shopping online also saves people the trips to the stores.

Benefits of international travel Example questions:
· What do you think people can !earn from travelling to other countries? Why?
I have travelled to many countries all over the world, such as Europe, Africa, North America and Asia. I think travelling has helped me to become a more humorous, knowledgeable and well-rounded individual with a greater understanding and acceptance for world cultures. Moreover, I also learnt to know much about other cultures' languages, beliefs, history, food and drink. Many of my friends have never left their hometowns, and this shows in their ways of thinking, which is often limited and very conservative.

· Can travel make a positive difference to the economy of a country? How?
I have been to over 25 countries worldwide. Often, this has been a quick trip or tour of a country, where I can see and do as much as I can in the time period that I have. But I have also lived in two foreign countries: Uganda, where I lived for 4 months, and England, where I have been for over a year. In both situations, 1 feel I have contributed to the economy of the respective countries. When I was travelling, I spent much money on gifts, food and accommodation, and when I was living abroad I also paid taxes and offered my skills to the country in the form of work.

· Do you think a society can benefit if its members have experience of travelling to other countries? In what ways?
Yes. I think travelling to other countries will help broaden the horizon of an individual by learning about different cultures of the world. Travelling can also enrich one's experiences and increase one's knowledge. If more citizens have these progressive qualities, then naturally this will benefit society.
