[British Council] Great films that aren’t really about Canada

Factually correct: Đúng với thực tế

Preconditions to achieving: Điều kiện tiên quyết để đạt được…

ex: There are some basic preconditions to achieving happiness.

Enormous (i nố z mous) waterfall: Canada for me is a place that starts somewhere on the other side of that enormous waterfall.

A tunnel (tơ nồ) in the rock behind the water. The place is also popular with lovers.

The spot also attracts crazy people who want to throw themselves over the edge. These days it’s not bad if you like casinos. The latest one to open is called Fallsview casino, which, they say, is more luxurious (lấc zơ ri ơts) and sophisticated (səˈfistiˌkātid) than the Casino Niagara.

10. A lot of people are killed by guns in America.
