        Read the following text. You can also listen to it. Then choose from the list below what Peter likes and what he doesn't like. Use the colour yellow for the things he likes and the colour orange for the things he doesn't like.
        Peter has a new penpal. He introduces himself in his first e-mail. He writes:
         
        "Hi Daniel. How are you? I'm fine. My name is Peter and I'm 16 years old. I come from London. In my free time, I do a lot of things. For example, I like playing the guitar and listening to music. I don't like reading though. I rather like playing games with my little brother and going outside. When I'm outside, I prefer riding my bike or playing football. Even though I like sports, I don't like playing volleyball or tennis. And I hate running! However, sometimes I like to go swimming. I also enjoy going to the city and meeting my friends. When I'm in the city, I can't stand sightseeing. What are your hobbies, Daniel? Do you like sports? Hope to hear from you soon! Take care, Peter."
