B1 Essays by students – The first car

And we finally present an essay about Karl Benz, and how he invented the car.

This essay was written by Guille, and I hope you like it.

Could you imagine a world where you have to travel walking everywhere? I wouldn´t be able. 

For that reason, Karl Benz, an important german inventor, invented the first car in 1885.
130 years ago, everybody thought that it was the life, to travel walking or riding horses. Now nowbody 
can imagine their lives without a car. 
Nowadays; there are more than 1000 different cars and millions in our roads. Karl Benz 
founded the Benz´s house and patented his invention. 

He started to work selling construction materials and he got marry with Bertha Ringer. 

They had five children. 


The Benz Patent-Motorwagen, his first car, is exhibed in the Deutsches Museum in Germany now. 
He died in 1929 when he was 84 years old. 

Benz got the first driving license the 1st Agoust of 1888.
