Let’s start knowing some more details about the city that we are going to visit in this project. Our first stop in Toronto is going to be CN Tower. Toronto's most famous landmark, the 553-meter CN Tower, is one of the city's must see attractions and it is also impossible to be missed because the structure can be seen from almost everywhere in the city.
Tourists can either appreciate the building from the ground or take a trip up to one of the observation areas or restaurants for wonderful views of the city and Lake Ontario. The CN Tower, which was built between the years 1972 and 1976, was once the tallest structure in the whole world.
At the end of the session, you will have:
- been introduced to Toronto, the largest city in Canada.
- known all the outcomes you have to produce in this project.
- started thinking about which things you are going to include in your recommendations to travel to a Canadian city.
Watch the Toronto Vacation Travel Guide and visit some of the most interesting places Toronto offers to the tourist. If you need extra help, you can turn on subtitles. Which place would you like to visit first? Which one has impressed you the most? Did you know anything about the CN Tower before?
After having watched the video, try to answer the following questions orally:
- Do you know any other famous places in Toronto?
- Have you ever been to Toronto? And to any other Canadian cities? Do you know of anybody who has visited this city or any other Canadian cities?
- Would you like to visit this city in the future? Why? Why not?
If you want to know more details about the largest Canadian city and top 10 things to do there, watch the video "10 things to do in Toronto".
As you could see, Will shows us some of the very interesting places to visit and things to do in those places and it is a good way to get acquainted with the city we are going to work on along this project. What aspect has been more surprising to you? Is there anything that you already knew? Have you chosen your favourite place in Toronto yet? or the place you want to know more about?
You can answer and summarize these three questions in a short monologue and you can share it with your classmate or with the rest of the class.
As you are going to see in a few moments, The CN Tower will be the first place you should include on a Google Sites map route. Don't forget about it!
Meanwhile, visit its official website and explore all the things you can visit in one of the tallest towers in the world.
