  13. My name is Thomas. I
    live in Toronto, the
    largest city in Canada.
    Toronto is not the
    capital city of Canada.
    Ottawa is the capital
    city of Canada.
    Toronto is on the shore
    of Lake Ontario. Lake
    Ontario is one of the
    five Great Lakes. The
    Great Lakes are some of
    the biggest lakes in the
    world. Canada is a very
    big country; it is the
    second largest country
    in the world!
    I am a student. I study
    science at the
    University of Toronto. I
    hope to become a doctor
    when I finish
    university.
    The University of
    Toronto is the biggest
    university in Canada.
    The University of
    Toronto is located in
    the center of the city.
    We call the center of
    our city, the downtown.

  14. For lunch I like to go
    to Chinatown. Chinatown
    has many Asian
    restaurants and shops.
    In Chinatown, I like to
    order duck and rice. In
    Toronto we have many
    other interesting
    neighborhoods,
    including Little Italy,
    Little Portugal and
    Koreatown.

  15. to be
    continued…
    When I finish school I
    like to ride my bike.
    There are many bike lanes
    in this city. Toronto has
    many beautiful parks and
    ravines.
    Ravines are forest areas
    in the city. Each ravine
    has a river or creek that
    runs through it. Ravines
    are great places to ride
    your bike or to go for a
    run, because it is quiet
    and peaceful, right in
    the middle of the city.
    Canada has long winters.
    At the end of winter, we
    make maple syrup.
    Maple syrup is very
    sweet. It is made from
    sap, which comes out of
    maple trees at the end
    of winter and is
    collected. I love
    putting maple syrup on
    pancakes, waffles and
    French toast. It is
    delicious!
