Girl and boy

Once upon a time, there was a girl who had a dog. Her parents had gone on an excursion and told her when she was afraid to put her hand under the bed where her dog was. One night she listened to the sound of the bath and put his hand under the bed. 

The dog was sorry and he was not afraid of the other. The other evening the same night was heard and the girl was tired of listening to all of them. so they went to the bathroom and when they came back her parents ... the girl together with the dog were hanging in the toilet and in the mirror she said that only the dog

Helen’s nightmare

Helen had just turned twelve. That evening on Tuesday October 19th, she had laid down early when her mother's voice awakened her. The voice came from the lower floor. "Helen, come down quickly to the kitchen. I want to speak to you" Helen, clearly annoyed and sleepy, came out barefoot and before her bare foot touched the first step, a hand pulled her violently back. It belonged to her mother, who was scared to whisper "I heard it too".

Letter of expressing a preference

Dear Editor,
     I read the article in your newspaper about the refreshment bar and the vending machines. As far as I know, it would be better to provide a refreshment bar.
     First of all, the refreshment bar will contain lots of healthy food for young people to eat. Moreover, eating healthy food and watching its benefits on them will probably make them want to buy and consume more and more. If that doesn't work and teenagers aren't buying this kind of food because they might prefer unhealthy snacks, classes should be set up about healthy eating and explain to them what is best for their diet.
     The vending machines would be a bad idea. The reason for this is that they sell junk food, such as fizzy drinks, potato chips, candy bars to name but a few. Furthermore, this food won't be nutritional and won't give them the energy that is needed to keep them focused, clear minded, energetic and healthy.
     To sum up, I believe that the best idea would be the refreshment bar. I hope my thoughts will be considered.
              Yours sincerely,
                     George Georgandelis

My favourite photograph

This photograph was taken when I went on holidays to Poland. This summer my brother and I visited our father who lives in a big town in Poland called Gdynia. We went for a walk and we saw those padlocks. They symbolize the love between two persons who want to lock their relationship with this purpose. This phenomenon started many years ago when a king loved a woman. The woman was poor but she was beautiful as the myth said. The king wanted to marry her and he gave her a present. The present was a padlock with a key in the shape of a heart. That is an old but interesting story about this bridge with love-locks!!

My favourite photograph

This is one of my favourite photos. I took it while I was on a four-day trip to Thessaloniki with the 3rd grade of my junior high school. At the time, we were in a small village in Edessa near Thesalloniki. I love this photo because we had a beautiful view from up there.

Letter of recommendation

Dear editor,

I am writing in response to an article about the international summer camp that I read about in your magazine.I would like to nominate my best friend John.
He is a 17-year-old high school student.He can speak English in a high standard and he can also speak French and Portuguese.He is a very sociable and reliable person.He is a member of a basketball team.However,he likes to be a little adventurous,so every summer he ties something dangerous.For example,two years ago he went skydiving and then he tried bungee jumping.
Well this experience would be a really good asset for him.At first,this program would help him gain new experiences and that would be really important for John as he didn't use to travel a lot when he was younger.In addition,this program will help him be more mature,as he is going to learn how to live alone without his parents' help.Last but not least,this chance is something rare and it doesn't always happen. It is also a chance to brush up on his Portuguese and his English.
I hope John will be chosen for this international program.I look forward to hearing from you.

One-day-diary about my holidays

Hi everyone,

I am writing to tell you about one of the best places I had visited in Poland where I went for some days. My parents are from Poland, so I usually go there. This country is very interesting because it has many forests, rivers, traditional cities but the worst thing about the place is that the weather is awful.

When I went there, my dad wanted to saw show me and my brother one of the oldest castles in Poland. However, this country is huge so he chose to go to Gdansk. This old city is a castle with huge tall walls. The inhabitants used this city like a port too. Nowadays it is told said that it is one of the six biggest cities in Poland. 

In 1939 Gdansk was free and it didn't belong to Poland but after the Second World War with Germany it united with the country. After the war people renovated all the houses and the castle and some years later, people started staying there. This city has traditional houses with stones and wood and the castle is the same as it was in the Middle Ages!

I like this town so much and I hope you will visit it in the future.

I am really into adrenaline since i have tried parkour , karate and canoeing . However through many group activities i have become sociable and a teamworker . Furthermore , I am hardworking and always optimistic because we  can face everything as long as our mind is clean and not frustrated .

However , I loved traveling abroad and I would like to dothis as many times my limits allow me . I feel like this due to believing that communicating  with new people and exchanging ideas , beliefs and experiencing others culturs is a priceless chance that someone must grab at once .
