Read the following dialogue and then use the information to fill in the following table.

Dan: I have to say, I love living in a village. It’s so much friendlier – in the city I never knew my neighbours.

Pete: Not me! Before you know it, everybody knows your business. No, I’m glad I moved.

Dan: But in our village we’re a real community and we help each other out. And there’s no crime.

Pete: That’s not a problem in the city as long as you’re sensible. I’ve got to admit though, one thing I did miss about the country at first was the peace and quiet. When I first moved to town, I couldn’t sleep for a week.

Dan: Exactly. All I ever hear is the birds singing.

Pete: Yeah, but I’ve got used to the noise now. And I couldn’t give up the theatres, cinemas and clubs here. And the underground runs all night, so there’s no problem getting home. Where you live, the buses stop at seven in the evening.

Dan: But I’m so happy here. I’ve got my vegetable garden and the scenery is fantastic.

Pete: But nothing happens! And another thing, in the city people accept you as you are, whereas in the country they’re less open-minded.

Dan: Perhaps. But I’m so much happier knowing that my children don’t have to breathe traffic fumes all the time. It’ much healthier and our whole lifestyle is safer.

Pete: Maybe I’ll feel the same one day, but for the moment I’m happy where I am.
