There are so many places where I like to go. For example, it's Kalemegdan. Kalemegdan is the most popular park among Belgradians, there is the river Danube nearby and I like to hang out with my friends there. We usually have long walks and it's our tradition.
When I lived in Turkey, my favourite place to relax was Bosphorus. It's so relaxing, and I think that it hugs people. I miss Bosphourus a lot.

I want to go to library because I really love reading books.
Especially mystery and detective storys.
And it's really good for memorizing new words.
Isn't it?

I like going to the library because I love reading. In the evening I often go to the pizzeria with my friends. Sometimes I take the bus to go to another town that is bigger than mine.

Hi Shayta,

The name of the place where where taxis wait to pick up customers is called a 'taxi rank'. :)

Hi emitis,
I'm not sure what you mean. Where have you seen 'City Caps'?

Hi JoEditor. Thanks for your attention. I see that in Tactics for Listening book. A person call a "City Cabs" for the passengers.

Hi emitis,
Ah! The word was 'cabs' with a 'b' not 'caps' with a 'p'. A 'cab' is the American word for a 'taxi' so I guess that in the listening exercise, 'City Cabs' is the name of the taxi company. Could that be right?
Good luck with your studies, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

Another good question, Shayta!

Before I answer - does anybody else know the answer? What's the name of the place where we wait to get a taxi?

Hi Blue sea, we can't use 'wear and tear' for people - only for objects or things which get scratched or chipped or damaged in some way. 

For people you could say 'he got sick because of old age' or 'he got sick because of his lifestyle' (for example he ate bad food and didn't sleep enough).  Unfortunately we don't have a fixed phrase for people.  Does this help a little? Let us know if you have any more questions and we'll try to help.
