ENGLISH SPEAKING PRACTICE
Task 1: Read the Text Out Loud
On Cairo streets, there is little concept of cycling as a means of getting across the city. Needless to say, there are no cycle lanes. For some professionals, bikes are associated with the working class, and so is a social stigma—while some female cyclists report harassment from passersby. But the city's few energetic bike advocates say that cyclists are slowly on the rise. The idea we want to get across is that it's not just a sporting activity; it can also be a means of transport in some areas of Cairo.
