there is only space in the newspaper for
a short article.

Reading task
1.Read the text on the previous page and underline the information you think is most important. 2 Look at the parts of the text you underlined and in note form write a list of the 7-8 most important facts. 3 Work with your partner to write the opening 1 or 2 sentences of your article. They should say something about who Zhang Yuncheng is, how old he is, what his disability is, and what he has achieved. 4 When you are satisfied with your introduction, write the rest of the article.

Reading task
Swap your article with another pair. Read their article
checking the following points. 1 What information did you include in your article that their article does not contain? 2 What information did they include in their article that you didn't include in yours? 3 Correct any spelling, grammar or punctuation mistakes they made.

Take your own article back and recheck. Now write a new draft of your article.

We can begin like this:
Although Zhang Yuncheng is unable to walk or even get out of bed without help, hw has achieved his ambition to write a book. … …..

Write a letter to the architect of a new building (e.g. a

supermarket or a railway station) that is going to be
constructed in your area. Suggest ways to make your community more accessible for people with disabilities. Remember to include the polite forms that you underlined in the letter.

Complimentary close: begins with a capital letter and ends with a comma. Signature: your name

Sample writing
Dear Mr. Smith, I read in the newspaper that you are the architect who is to design the new supermarket in our suburb. I am writing to ask you to consider the matter of easy use of the supermarket by people in wheelchairs. In particular, I would like you to consider the following things: 1 Width of aisles. Can you please make sure that the aisles are wide enough to allow wheelchairs to pass through. In some supermarkets the aisles are so narrow that a person in a wheelchair can not move along them easily.

2 Height of shelves. Can you please design shelves that can be reached by people in wheelchairs. In some supermarkets people in wheelchairs have to ask other shoppers to help them. This takes away their independence. 3 Lifts to other floors. Lifts should be in places that people in wheelchairs can get to easily. It is very difficult if lifts are right at the back of the shop and people have to go up and down the shelves before they get to it. 4 Car parks. I hope you will leave some car spaces close to the front of the shop for people in wheelchairs. It is very difficult if they have to park a long way away from the shop and wheel themselves over rough ground to the entrance.

Thank you for reading my letter. I hope you will consider my suggestions. Disabled people should have the same opportunities as able-bodied people to shop independently and they should be able to do so with dignity. I am sure many people will admire your supermarket if you design it with good access for disabled people. The supermarket owners will also be happy as more people will be able to shop there. Yours sincerely, Julia
