Traveling to a different country can be both exciting and frustrating

Traveling to a different country can be both exciting and frustrating at the same time. What are the most important pieces of advicethat you would give visitors coming to your country? Give reasons and details to support your response.

A foreign country is always an unpredictable place for visitors. There can be some difficulties with the language, understanding another nation or just some force major situations. I would give a few pieces of advice for tourist to avoid these possible problems.

First of all, it will be better to book a hotel before you arrive to Russia. There are a lot of events in many cities and all hotels can be filled in by other tourists.

Secondly, I would recommend to have a russian speaking guide to communicate better with native citizens. For instance, I saw several days ago a tourist who wanted to get a boat trip. The owner of the boat increased a price for him just because the tourist spoke English.

The last but not the least advice is to take care about your own things. There is a lot of public transport in our country. Once I saw that one tourist observed that his wallet was stolen in a metro during rush hour. It would be more safety to get a taxi instead of using public transport.

In conclusion I would say that foreign visitors could face some difficulties in our country. The most important pieces of advice are to have a russian speaking guide, take care about their things and book a hotel beforehand.

TOEFL listening lectures: A lecture by a professor of Art

Good morning Viktor. Your work lacks organisation and your sentence structure is very poor.You simply cannot afford to just write random thoughts that spring into your head.
In my opinion you need about two to three months concerted learning before taking a TOEFL test. You need to develop the ability to think in English.
