ESL English Lesson: Where to retire?
D.J. Robinson

Today, let’s talk about where we might like to retire to. There are many thoughts on this subject, which this lesson will hopefully explore.

Most of us look forward to the day when we can sit back and retire. However, where should you retire to? Will it be a place by the sea? Perhaps you might like to live in a country cottage or in a house up a mountain.

Years ago many Brits living in cities favoured retiring to places like Bognor Regis, Margate or Blackpool because a place by the sea is what many dreamed of. Over the last 30 years or so many Brits retired to Spain. The weather is good - with 300 days of sunshine.
