It is in the province of Alberta in Canada.
Millions of visitors from all over the world go to visit it.

It also has 26 cinemas.

as well as a swimming pool with real sand and a machine that makes waves.
It also has the world's largest indoor man-made lake.
the ship that Christopher Columbus sailed to America.

is a hotel inside the centre and lots of fun things to do at night,such as dancing
And you can go any time.It's open 365 days a year.
exercise 3.In the library,the librarian is telling people about the Internet.
Listen and answer the questions
Do you know what it is?
The Internet is hundreds of computers all over the world that talk to each other
To use it,all you need is a computer and a telephone line.
The Internet is good for many things.
You can shop on the Internet,look for information and send mail.
When you send mail on the Internet,it's called e-mail.
To use e-mail,you need to get an e-mail address.This is easy and cheap.
E-mail is quick.It can take days or weeks for a paper letter to arrive somewhere
but an e-mail will arrive in a few hours.
With e-mail,you can also send copies of your letter
to as many people as you want.
Now,you can even send pictures,sounds and short films in your e-mail.
But there are still some things that you can't do with e-mail.
For example,you can't send real things,like a stamp or a pretty leaf.
Of course,you can't send an e-mail to someone who doesn't have a computer
but as e-mail is almost freemore and more people are using it.
Maybe,one day,people will live and die without ever receiving a paper letter
