Unit 11: TRAVELLING IN THE FUTUTRE
Lesson 5: SKILLS 1

1. What is the connection between them?


I. READING:
2. Read the text below and find the names of the transport inventions.
There have been many interesting transport inventions. Some become popular, but
others flop!
The personal hover scooter floats above the ground. It travels at around 30 kph. But it
isn't popular. Maybe that because it's expensive. Personally, I think it's too hard to park!
The monowheel is a single-wheel bike. The driver sits inside the wheel and pedals to go
forward. It has one major problem - it can fall over very easily. I think it looks rather
weird.
The Segway is a success. It's a two - wheeled vehicle. The driver pulls the handle to go
back or pushes it to go forward. It's not as popular as the inventors hoped, but you might
see one in an airport, or park. I guess it is a convenient, green way to travel.
Which new inventions will we use in the future? Which ones won't we use ? It's hard to
know!
