Shibaura Institute of Technology Paragraph Writing 2 students write about their favourite architectural structures

The students in the Paragraph Writing 2 class have been doing some very good work. Below are some examples. Enjoy!

Seto bridge is a famous bridge in Kagawa and Okayama. It connects Kagawa and Okayama. It is a very large and long bridge, 9,368 meters long. It consists of three structures: two different styles of suspension bridge and a truss bridge. It has a four-lane expressway and a two-lane railroad. The Shikoku district has not Shinkansen, but it has plan for building a Shinkansen road. So Seto bridge was designed that it can add more two railroads. Its color is light gray. This color suits this place. You can see a beautiful view of the Seto Inland Sea when you drive or get into a train.
