Topic sentences

2. When I have my own children, I want to move to a small town.

3. The town I live in is very small.

4. There are two main advantages of living in a small town.

Paragraph A: Topic sentence ____

First, you know everyone and everyone knows you. This helps you to feel safe, and it is friendlier.

Secondly, it is quiet and there are fewer cars. This means there is less pollution than in a big town

or city.

Paragraph C: Topic sentence ____

I don’t want my children to live in a big city because a big city is not as friendly or as safe as a

village. I want to move to the village where my grandparents live. The children can play in the

street there and everyone knows each other.

Paragraph B: Topic sentence ____

It was a very nice place to live then. Now it is much bigger than before. More people live there and

some big businesses opened offices there. My parents still live there but they say it was better in

the past.
Paragraph D: Topic sentence ____

There are only a few food shops and one school here. Most people go to the big city to go shopping

for clothes and gifts. There is a doctor’s but there isn’t a hospital. Again, you need to go to the city

if you need the hospital. However, our town is very nice and it has a beautiful park.
