Read the text and say whether the following sentences are true or false.

Visiting Wales is going to be a lovely experience. I have been to the UK several times but never to Wales. I am quite excited about it, I must say. Apparently it is the land of castles. There are more castles in Wales than in any other region in the world. Amazing! I hope the weather is going to be fine as we are going to spend most of our time touring around castles. To get myself ready for the trip, I have been reading the Arthurian legends. Well, I read some of the tales at school and I have seen films about the mythical King Arthur and his magician, Merlin. There has also been a programme on TV. I think the Arthurian romances are amusing and thrilling at the same time. I really enjoy them.
My cousins have already been to Wales and we have been talking to them about what we might need. They have been telling us to take raincoats and umbrellas because it rained a lot when they were there. They said it was wonderful but wet – I hope we are luckier with the weather.
A: 1. Wales is a region where there are many ancient castles.
B: 2. Touring around Wales is going to be exciting, according to the writer.
C: 3. The writer has recently read the Arthurian romances for the first time.
D: 4. The writer has been talking to a travel agent about visiting Wales.
E: 5. The writer hopes it won't rain while they are on holiday in Wales.
