Let’s change some other ways to present the question:

    A: Which, do you think, is a better choice for commute, by bike or by car?

    B: In my opinion, car is a better choice for commute because it is much faster

    and more comfortable than by bike.

    A: Which would you rather take to go to school, car or bike? B: In good days, Id rather go to school by bike because it takes less time in rush hours than by

    car. It is easier to find parking places for bikes than for cars. Besides, bikes dont cause

    pollution and are environmentally friendly. Also, riding bike is good for health.

    So, now. We believe that you are able to give us your answers to the following question.

     A: Which one would you rather commute by, car or bike?

    B: Id rather commute by……………………………………………………………………………..……

    Lets make a conversation

    A: Hey, Vivian, morning. Why did you ride bike here today? Youve always

     come to school by car.

    B: Oh, I know, but its really a nice day today and Id rather enjoy the fresh air on my way here.

    Besides, riding bike is really good for health.

    A: So youve decided to commute by bike from now on.

    B: Actually, I havent quite decided yet. Certainly, in good days like this, I prefer by bike. You see,

    its much easier to find a parking place for bikes and it takes less time in rush hours than by

    car. Besides, bikes are very environmentally friendly. But in bad days such as raining, car is

    certainly a better choice because nobody wants to come to school all wet and cold, right?

    A: Sure, you’ve certainly made a good point there. So it all depends, right?

    B: Yes, thats right. Its time for class. Lets go.

    READING AND WRITING

    Some people prefer to commute by car because it is generally faster

    and much more comfortable than by bike. But Id rather choose by

    bike because it takes less time in rush hour and is good for health.

    Also, it is easier to find parking places for bike, and unlike cars, bikes

    are environmentally friendly. However, car is certainly a better

    choice for long-distance travel as well as for bad days than bike.

    Now, it’s your turn to design your own speech:

    Some people _________________________because_____________________

    ____________________________but_____________________________ because _______________________________________________________

    ______________ Also, ___________________________________________

    __________________________ and unlike ___________________________

    __________However, ____________________________________________
