Students A and B
A: I think a garage is useful and important. They are good for security and they protect the car from bad weather.
B: Yes, a garage is very useful and not only for keeping cars in. in a lot of countries, many people who have a garage use it for storage or as a workshop.

Subject: Places of interest for the students to visit
Date: 12th March 20…

The purpose of this report is to make suggestions for places which students may be interested in visiting during their say next week.

Durris Castle
This is an eighteenth-century castle, built on top of a hill and surrounded by forests. There are lots of interesting things to see there such as the dungeons and the gardens. Entrance fee for castle and gardens: 2 pounds (with student card).

Trelawney Cove
This is a beautiful beach with white sand. It is very safe for swimming. It is usually not crowded, except at weekends. A wide range of water sports are available such as windsurfing and waterskiing.

Roscommon Leisure Centre
This indoor leisure centre is climate controlled and has a number of different swimming pools and eating places. There are water slides, wave machines and a games arcade. A perfect place to visit when the weather is bad.

Overall, I believe that the places of interest suggested in this report offer a wide variety of activities and experiences that visiting students will enjoy during their stay.
