10. Your foreign colleague has taken you on a sightseeing tour of London. Read the following dialogue in parts and act them it using modifications.

A: There are a lot more beautiful places to be seen in London, you know. After lunch we can go to the Tower of London, one of the most famous buildings in Britain. About a thousand years old.

B: When was it founded?

A: The White Tower, its oldest part, was founded in 1078 by William the Conqueror.

B: Is it a museum now?

A: Now it is. But there is no single answer to the question what the Tower is. It was used as a royal palace and a fortress. And do you know that the Crown jewels and the national collections of arms are kept in the Tower?

B: That sounds extraordinary interesting. I’m eager to go there. What shall we see after that?

A: I think that will do for one day. Next time we’ll take you to St. Paul’s Cathedral.

B: What is it famous for?

A: It is the finest Renaissance church in Europe. It was built by the famous English architect Christopher Wren at the end of the XVII century.

B: Oh, I’m afraid I won’t have time to see all these places.
