Note to recorder:

Please read in a slow but natural speed. It is for non-native children. Make a long full stop after each stop.

This is my city. I live in Castelldefels. It’s a small city near Barcelona.

Castelldefels is between Gavà and El Garraf. There are a lot of interesting places to visit.

Do you know that there is a castle? It’s on the top of the city.

The beach is also very important. Children like to play in the sand in summer.

There is a ”seafront” at the beach. People practice sports, go for a walk or have lunch at restaurants.

There is an “Olympic channel”. It was built in 1992 for the Olympic Games of Barcelona.

You can practice a lot of sports there. Do you like any of these sports?

In the centre of the city, there is a square. You can see the city council and the church.

Shops are very important for our city. You can shop anything you need. We are a very touristic city.

Our school, Lluís Vives school, is near the city centre. The school is next to the police station and the train station.

Festivities are another touristic attraction. The most different festivity is the “Sea Party”, where pirates come by the beach.

You can visit our city by train, bus or car. We have a good communication.

I love my city. I love Castelldefels.

Could you list specifically what's wrong with the previous recording?

The recording slightly changes some text. The speaker should speak slower and make longer pauses. Thanks in advance!

Some of the original text is incorrect English. For example, "you can shop anything you need" is not grammatical. It should be "buy" or maybe "shop for".

Do you want a recording with these mistakes left in?

There are other parts that the author of the previous recording changed that make it sound more idiomatic as well. "Touristic" for example, while a word, is not commonly used.
