What would you want to eat for breakfast if you were on a farm?
- If I were on a farm I would eat fresh food, for instance: eggs, milk and why not some homemade jams.

What kind of work would you expect to do there?
- I would expect to manage straw, to milk cows, feed pigs, collect fruits.

- What would you want to eat for breakfast if you were on a farm?
I'd like to eat my usual breakfast (tea with a croissant and some biscuits) perhaps adding some fruits freshly picked.
What kind of work would you expect to do there?
I'd expect to milk the cows, feed the pigs, collect the eggs, cook, grow vegetables, look after farm animals.

I would like to do something outdoor activities like help to farmers work.

I born and grew up in a farm, so I've worked hard milking the cows, feeding pigs, colecting eggs. Also I worked looking after the livestocks with my fahter and, o course, I did a lots of farm duties. I lived in the cities, is well. I thing the people in the country side work hard and often they are fisically exhausted. People in the cities work hard too, under presure, with stress, they drive miles to get their job... In my opinion, the work in the farm is fhysical in the cities is mental, but both of them are too hard.

I want to eat fresh eggs, milk and fresh fruit and vegetables and I can make nearly every work on the farm. I know you should work there but I think you would do everything with relish on a place like a farm. I can collect chicken eggs, look after animals (especially horses and dogs) and cook.

nice exercise

If I were in a farm, I'd like to eat fresh vegetables with eggs (I like mirror eggs but I prefer omelet or scramble eggs). Next, I'd take fresh fruits just picked up from the orchard. And then, I'd end up by a glass of milk.
Would you mind proofread my comment please.

Hello Stephane Roth,

I'm afraid we don't offer a checking or proofreading service on LearnEnglish. If we tried to offer such help then we would have no time for anything else!
