A letter of application

Dear Mrs. Benson,

With reference to your advertisement in the latest edition of “The Times”, I am writing to apply for the position of shop assistant in your international bookshop.

I would be very interested in this job as I am keen on books. I have been reading different types of books, such as adventure, mystery, crime and science fiction ones. In addition, I have written my own book which was published and it was a big success. I speak English fluently since I have been studying the English language for nine years. Furthermore, I am a holder of the ECCE certificate and I have visited England twice.

I believe I am the ideal candidate for the job. I have worked foe many years in my family bookshop and I have a great deal of knowledge on books. I am a good communicator and I can promote them to the public by convincing people to buy one. I can even cope with demanding customers, as well.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require further information.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,
Christina Mavradonaki

Cambridge Writing Part 1: Letter

Dear Robin,

Thanks for your letter. It was great to hear that you got through your final exams. I’m writing to give you all the information you need about the summer camp.

Well, I think that it would be an excellent idea to attend a sports camp in the mountains because I have always wanted to. I’m keen on basketball and I’m very good at tennis, as well, so it looks really interesting. As for our accommodation, I’d prefer to stay in rooms because I believe that they would be more spacious and more comfortable for us.

Concerning the food, here, in Greece we cook a delicious dish called Briami. It’s my favourite and it isn’t too difficult to prepare one evening. If you agree, we can try it. I have never been to Canada before so I would really like to explore the city and go sightseeing. Moreover, I’d love to go shopping for souvenirs.

I’m looking forward to your next letter, so write soon.

Best wishes,

Responding to this activity: 


Both pictures show animals relaxing.One similarity between the two pictures is that "Giant"& lions are prisoners ,which means that they belong to someone else.They  might feel badly about their prison .Another similarity between the two pictures is that they both belong to the same species , as they are mammals and felids.

In the first photo I can see a lion and a lioness that are in Barcelona. However, in the second one I can see a home-cat "THE GIANT "who lives in Mrs. Christina's house. In one photo I can see a pair of lions which might excite the visitors, but in the other I can see Giant relaxing with a catnap.

I suppose that the animals in both pictures hang out with animals of the same species , so perhaps they spend their time pleasantly !

Wild and home animals are valuable to humans in lots of ways! For example, blind people have a dog with them because they can't see. As for the elderly women, they have cats, dogs and other animals to keep them company.

This is why we MUST treat all animals in a nice way.As owners we have to feed and water them. We should treat them with a bath or a walk . In this way, humans could have had a good relationship with their pets and all the other animals .I think that this is an amazing way to communicate and treat all animal species!!!!

Some more funny videos! xD

This is a video about funny animals.I'm sure it will crack you up! :D

Aaand, now a video about babies. Beware of the cuteness! :)

Funny videos!

This adorable dog in the video above is obviously very attached to its owner. That means that he has treated his cute dog with a lot of love and caring. However, as you will realize, this gorgeous dog is very anxious when it is in a car and that’s why it needs to hold somebody’s hand all the time, but this can be annoying when you have to drive and hold your dog’s hand.

In this video, a cat is sitting on the toilet and it wants some privacy to relax on its own. That’s why it closes the door.

Enjoy it!

Funny videos of cats! :D

In this funny video there are two cats which may be in the attic. One of them tries to climb down the ladder and in order to succeed it its friend gives it a “helping” hand in fact.

This fatty cat is very scared of something and it tries to escape in a really unexpected way.

Article regarding teachers!

A teacher who makes the difference

Have toy ever had a teacher who has been important in your life? Well, I have met lots of teachers. However, only one has made the difference and has influenced me the most. It’s my German teacher, Mrs. Perdikaki.

 One of the main reasons she’s been important is her character. She’s very funny and that quality makes her very likeable to all her students. That’s why she doesn’t only tell jokes during the lesson but she also encourages us to talk and give our opinions.

Additionally, her lessons are enjoyable and very interesting. This is partly because we do projects, watch videos and sometimes play games. That’s how she makes us understand the German language more easily. Furthermore, she tries to motivate us to participate in the lessons and she listens carefully to what we say.

Mrs. Perdikaki is one of the best teachers that I have ever had. I wish she taught us all the school subjects in order to enjoy ourselves in every lesson.
