Tell about your street

Elementary School Level A1

Hi, I am Nastia. I live in Kaniv, a well known Ukrainian town. Everyone in Ukraine knows my town because it is linked with the name of Taras Shevchenko. I live in Shevchenko Street. There are many blocks of flats and family houses in my street, and I live in one of them. Our block of flats has five floors. At the weekends I like riding a bike and rollerblading in my street. The school, where my sister and I study, is near our house. There is also a kindergarten. Opposite my house there is a sportsground where I often play. Lots of my friends live in my street and I like playing with them.

My street is very long. It starts downtown Kaniv, in the very heart of my home town, in Shevchenko Square and stretches to Tarasova Hill on the outskirts of Kaniv.

There is a cinema in Shevchenko Square but it is not modern. I go there to watch perfomances, plays, concerts and fairs. My elder sister Liza performed in concerts, she danced beautifully. There are also many shops and two cafes in this square. I like buying tasty ice cream there.

If you go down the street, you will see Shevchenko library. I sometimes borrow books there. I am fond of reading books about animals. There is a school on the left side of the street. It’s school #6.

There is a beautiful hotel and a restaurant “Kniazha Hora” and a park of statues on the right side of the street.

When you go along Shevchenko Street on the outskirts of our town, you can see the Dnipro River on the left. Many people like relaxing and fishing there.

My family likes going for a walk to Tarasova Hill. At the foot of the hill there is a small Cossack Church and a lovely park. It’s not easy to get to the top of the Hill because there are almost 400 steps in the staircase. Many people from Ukraine and other countries visit Tarasova Hill and Shevchenko Museum. The view from the Hill is fantastic!

There are many trees and flowers in my street. It is especially beautiful in spring when the fruit trees are in blossom.

I like my street very much!
