READING COMPREHENSION exercise for ESL students (pre-intermediate)



A
I went to the new shopping center in Barnes Road last Friday and I must say it’s the biggest shopping center I’ve ever seen! It’s enormous, and it takes hours to go around all the shops. There are some excellent stores, and I particularly like the sports shops because they’re big and have lots of new equipment and clothes. But you have to do a lot of walking! There’s a floor plan, but it isn’t very easy to understand. If you go past your shop, you can spend a long time walking in circles! It was nice to go to once, but I don’t think I’d like to shop there regularly.

B
In my opinion, they’ve built a really good center and they’ve designed it very well. There are cafés on every level and lots of places where you can sit down. To go to different levels, there are lots of lifts and stairs. I really like the trees that they have right in the middle with a small lake! It’s good to sit and watch the little waterfall and the different colored flowers. You can spend a day here, easily.

C
At last! We have some good designer shops in our area! Thank you, Barnes Road! Now I don’t have to go to the city when I want to buy clothes! OK, they’re a bit expensive, but that’s normal. I save money because I don’t have to buy a train ticket. The clothes stores are really, really good and they have all the latest designs. I also like the cool vegetarian restaurant on the second level. The food is delicious. I think I’m going to spend a lot of time and money here!
