When you read a text, you can often identify how the writer feels about the subject. 


This is called their viewpoint. You might hear it called a point of view. 


A key skill in English is to be able to identify what this viewpoint is and find evidence to support it. 


In this activity, you will read a text and select supporting statements for your understanding. 


Have a read of the text and get ready to answer the questions.

In today's fast-growing and connected world, we face a big problem: too many cars on the road. To solve this, we can make public transport better. In this article, we'll talk about why we should have more public transport and how it can help us build better and more sustainable cities.


You know those annoying traffic jams? Public transport can help reduce them. When more people take buses and trains, there are fewer cars on the road. This makes your daily commute smoother and faster.


Public transport is good for the planet. Buses and trains use less fuel and produce fewer bad gases compared to lots of cars. This helps fight climate change and keeps our air cleaner.


Making public transport better creates jobs and helps local businesses. When a city invests in buses and trains, it boosts the local economy. Plus, people save money because they don't need to spend as much on their own cars.


Public transport is fair for everyone. It's affordable and easy to use, so people of all incomes and abilities can get around. This makes sure everyone has the same chances for school, work, healthcare, and fun.


Public transport makes cities better. It encourages smart city planning where homes, jobs, and fun places are close to buses and trains. This means less need for more roads and highways and keeps green spaces for everyone.


Public transport can save you money. It costs less than owning and running a car. Plus, you can save even more with bus passes and discounts.


Public transport is a great idea for many reasons. It cuts traffic jams, helps our planet, creates jobs, and is fair for everyone. We should make public transport better to build cities that are better for all of us, now and in the future.
