Hi!I like very much countrysides with forests,mountains,lakes, rivers and meadows. Do you know French Jura Mountains? It's a mountain's range spanning two countries: France and Switzerland. The highest point is about1700m. His name is : the "Crêt de la Neige".From this point we have a large view on the Alpes's range and the "Mont Blanc".
But "Jura " is also the name of a french department at the east of France, between the Burgondy area and Switzerland. It's an area with various landscapes as I said above.
"Jura" has also given his name at the géological term: jurassique.Millions years ago, before these mountains rised, there were a sea not very deep; tropical vegetation and dinosaurs. Today, in Jura, near a small village of Loulle, we can see a limestone place with many dinosaur's tracks. It's for me an extraordinary site because we can see 18 sauropod tracks ways and 4 theropod tracks ways. These tracksways had been discovered in 2004 and some scientifics had examined and protected them; It's now a touristic site .The Windermere Lake had intresting me because as I exlain i like landscapes very green with lakes, forests.I could not live in city , far from nature. Thanks

Hello Hesham Anwar,

I'm afraid we don't provide answers to tests and questions from other sources. If we started to do this then we would end up doing everyone's homework for them!

What kind of countryside do you like best? Which of the places that Richard visits most interest you? Do you prefer to live in the city or in the countryside?
I like different kinds of countryside. Southern countryside with the sea and the beach is great, especially if surrounded by mountains, like in the Caucasus for example. I like mountain scenery because it is spectacular. In general I like visiting different regions or countries and admiring landscapes which are very different from that of my home region. In central Russia where I live the relief is flat, there are only small hills here and there, but there are large rivers, big forests and vast fields, I like that too, especially fields because I prefere open spaces . But sometimes it is interesting to see something different for a change, like tropical islands or high mountains. That's why in this video I like the Welsh scenery best of all because that's different from my place, but the Windermere lake is very beautiful too. As for the place where I'd prefer to live, I'd say in the city because of work and all the facilities and shopping, entertainment and so on, but I absolutely want to have a summer house in the countryside where I could spend my holidays in the nature enjoying fresh air, walking in the filelds and in the forest, swimming in a river or in a lake.

Hi friends! I like the country side with mountains, threes and beaches. the lake that I saw in the video is beatiful buy I like most the beach with warm water. The places that Richard visited looked worderful, I liked most the mountain beacause the scenary is special and we can feel the magic of the nature. I really prefer to live in the country side because the life is quite, calm and healthier that the cities.

I prefer the countryside in this video. The countryside is amazing beautiful in Great Britain, and I like the landscape the most among the places which Richard introduced. However, I would like live in the city rather than in the countryside. Because I always have curiosity for news things, I guess news may not get as first hand information if I live in countryside.

I like countryside like hills, mountains full with the snow, and then fields with full of green weeds. I think it'll make me so peaceful. I like the places that Richard showed. But I do love Lake Windermere. It's such a peaceful place. So relaxing I think. I'd be very happy and excited if I could go there. Actually, I'd like to stay in the countryside. But, our real life is so different. I could go there if I wanted. But I can't live there forever.

Mostly I prefer English countryside, but I also love mountains and hills here in my country!
I believe every place Richard visited are amazing, and must to be visited if you are there.
I prefer living in quite, sweeping, green countryside than in the town.
I wish I could live in British countryside in the future... :)

That makes two of us :)

Actually I prefer countryside than city life. Especially I take into account being of lake or sea and forests etc in countryside life.
