English Evaluation Test 6th form

A. Read about Antnios life.

Growing up on a farm
Antnio is now 22 years old. He was born in Bragana and he works on his fathers farm in Trs-os-Montes.
Nowadays, working on a farm is very different from what it was when his father was 22.
When my father John was young, there werent any tractors on the farm. There were horses and donkeys to do the
work. Now donkeys are in danger of extinction and we just have one horse.
In Trs-os-Montes its very hot in summer and very cold in winter. When my father was 22, there wasnt any
electricity. There was only a fireplace, so it was a bit difficult to keep the houses warm.
It was a long and difficult journey to go to town, because there werent any motorways. Now it only takes two hours
to drive to Oporto.
I like being a farmer. I love the animals, but Im really happy I live nowadays and not 20 years ago!
