Cars Speaking Part 1- Set 1

  1. Do you think the color of a car matters?
    Not really, although I have a preference for silver or black cars. I think colors go through fashions, everyone likes white at the moment. I heard that some car colors are safer than others as you are more visible and other colors are more likely to be in a collision.
  2. What kind of car would you like to own?
    If money was no object I would have a Tesla with all the mod cons. It has a computer system that practically drives the car itself and lots of technology to assist you. They are really expensive though so I don’t think I’ll be getting one soon.
  3. Do you enjoy traveling by car?
    I find it a little tedious to be honest because you have to focus on the road and it can be quite exhausting. I prefer to travel by train as you can get some studying done, read a book or just zone out until you arrive.
  4. Do you prefer being a driver or a passenger?
    I prefer to be the driver as you can be in control of the car and the time passes more quickly. Ideally, if you can share the driving on a long journey with somebody else. You can both have a nap and refresh before arriving.
