Task 1. You are going to read the text aloud. You have 1.5 minutes to read the text silently, and then be ready to read it aloud. Remember that you will not have more than 2 minutes for reading aloud.

Imagine a city of the future. Do you expect to see clean streets, flying cars, and robots doing all the work? Or, perhaps, your vision is full of nuclear bombs, chemical weapons, and people forced to live in hermetically sealed pods. No one really knows what the future holds, but the reality now is that our cities are overcrowded and polluted. No wonder, architects have started to design smarter urban environments to support a growing population. Some of these designs revolve around the idea that smarter equals greener. Visions of a green city often include electric vehicles and bike-sharing schemes, as well as skyscrapers with green roofs.

Without doubt, advanced technology will be an integral part of future cities. Sensors, placed across the city, will provide data on how the city is performing. They will be able to monitor energy and water usage, as well as provide self- driven transportation systems.
