Hi teacher,
It seems there are some wrong pictures in this lesson(Streets and Roads).I mean those aren't matched with their names.

Hello mdaivid,

I've just completed the task myself and the words and pictures match correctly. Which one did you think was wrong?

I’m living in Paris where we can find the most beautiful avenue of the world.
Today, cars are not welcome in the city and the Mayor hope , they will disappear one day totally.
Then, there will be no more traffic lights or crossings. Pedestrians and cyclists will be safe.

Live on Mexico is difficult cause the traffic on motorway is common, the drivers don’t respect the traffic lights and de pavement is used for informar commerce.

This is advice if you want visit my country. I recommend you be alert alway on the way!

there are many kinds of road like junctions and roundabout, motorway and all these things signpost, traffic light, pavement, kerb etc.

The streets, where I live, are good, however in much sites is necesary do mantenunce because, in the city, the county is building the first line of metro (subway train) and the contractor is doing any reforms to the streets.

Where I live, the streets and roads are ok but it could be re-pavemented so we can use to walk and not fall haha and the cars won't be damaged by the holes in the streets.

where i live, there are a motorway and some streets are damaged.
