ESERCIZIO NUM: 2248 - CATEGORIA: comprensione > invalsi - DIFFICOLTA': ***

SINGING IN THE SHOWER. Mr. Ben is a 30 year-old English man who lives in Manchester because he works there. He was born in London, he's very tall and he's got red hair and green eyes. Ben works as a manager in a big company but he doesn't really like his job. Since(da quando) he was a little child he loved listening to rock music and singing famous rock songs, but he was too shy to sing in front of a crowd(alla folla). Ben has got a wonderful voice but he stops singing when people are around him. He prefers to sing quietly in the shower and he also makes important decisions about his life. Ben plans(programmare) his business meetings and travels, the daily run in the park, the walks with his big dog Marshmallow and the menu of the day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Ben's family lives in London and they are worried because he is so shy. The family hopes he becomes more confident(sicuro di sé) so that he can sing in public one day, maybe in a big city like London. Who knows?
