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.

Yours
Themis Chavakis

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.
                   
Kisses,
Argyro

A letter of recommendation



Dear Editor, 

  I am writing in reply to your announcement , which I read about in your magazine . I would like to nomite myself because i would love to take part in the International Summer Camp.
  I am a 15-year-old hight school student . I speak English fluently and very well ,also I know some basics to communicate with someone who speaks French . I like being with others so i am in a basketball club and i am responsible of the younger groups when the coach is absent . 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 .
  I believe this summer camp experience could be greately beneficial for me. In the past i have taken part in an exhange program to Germany so , I will not be panicked or anything else . 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 . 
  All in all , I think it would really benefit me such an experience  and  I hope you will take my words in consideration when deciding  who the chosen people will be . I look forward to hearing from yu soon .

                                                          Yours sincerely ,
                                                          Andreas Plevrakis

MY FAVOURITE SPORTS!!!!!


I love sports especially basketball, football, volleyball and parkour. It is Summer now in Greece and i have all the free time to go out and play with my friends all these awesome sports. My favourite sport is parkour and one Summer i would like to go to Santorini where every year "Red bull art of motion" takes place. This is the official global competition of parkour. Every year the best athletes or freerunners go there and compete for the first place. It is my dream to go there, watch the event and talk to my favourite freerunners like; Yoann lerroux and Dimitris kyrsanidis or even parkour with them. I really want to go there one day and make my dream come true.

A warm hi from Andrew

Hello my online friends,

  I am writing in this fascinating forum to present my incredible family to all you hungry for information people.
Well, I am really excited to talk about this subject.First of all, I have been living in Heraklion for my whole life along with my parents and brother in a a house with two floors near the center . My mother is a teacher in a primary school and my father is retired air force officer and unfortunately I do not get to see George , my brother a lot because he just turned eighteen and he is almost to the army camps to serve his duty towards our proud but exhausted country which means that, he is rarely home .However , I feel delighted to have him with me whenever he is free. I also have a cute white dog Plouto , you see how I got influenced ;) Mickey mouse ... anyway that 's all for today.

See you  on the next upload pals , kissess :)) !!!!

Family Presentation

I live with my mum and my little sibling who is called Paul.We stay in a cozy house in Heraklion centre. My father has been in Poland since 2013, so there are the three of us in my family.

My house is spacious. It has three bedrooms two bathrooms and a big living room. The one thing that I don't like in my home is the view. I would prefer to wake up and see the sea as a view. I like the area where I live but when I grow up, I would like to live in Thessaloniki because it has better colleges than Heraklion.

In conlusion, I like all my every day life with all the advantages and disadvantages!

My Family!

I really get along with my family.I live with my parents and my little sibling who is 10 years old.There are four of us in my family.We spend quality time together playing many games like basketball,board games and video games.I sometimes feel homesick when I am away from home and I can't stay one week away from my home.

Summer English Course

This summer I'm having English lesson.I'm really excited about that because I love the English language.I am having English lessons three times a week.However, the bad thing about the lessons is that they take place early in the morning.In conclusion, I like the English course in summer and I think that our English teachers are going to prepare some really interresting projects for us to do during the summer.
