 I would like you to know that I won't be able to come to the lessons on neither Monday nor Tuesday because my family had organised our holidays on these dates. Unfortunately, they couldn't reschedule it. However, I assure you that I will try to keep up with the lessons and that I will have studied for Wednesday.Please tell Mrs Markaki that I will bring my Phrasebook on Wednesday, too. :)

See you on Wednesday! :)

Mark's surprise present

  As Mark sat down,he felt something moving moving next to his leg. What was it ? At thatmoment Mark felt icredibly scared!
Mark was on holida with his family at a campingnsite in Crete. They were staying in tents at midnight, Mark had decided to call his best friend Ali.
 He had already called  Ali, but she didn't answer him.In this way Mark supposed that Ali should have been on holiday with her parents in LA . A few minutes later ,he started to be absolutely worred and scared , because he undersood  what he felt near his leg . it was a large COMBRA . He started scratching when he showed it to his parents.
 Of course , he had forgotten that he had his birthday and that he asked his parents for a large and poisonous snake .
 After a few minutes he seemed so cross with his best friend that he never talk to her again. The question was "What he going to do now with the giant snake?"

My predictions for the future! :)

The future is usually unpredictable, but people have always been searching for ways to learn more about it. In this post, I’m going to introduce my ideas- or “predictions” if you prefer- about what the future will be like. So, in my view:

v By the year 2040, the Earth’s temperature will have risen by about  5 degrees
v Education will have developed and instead of books, students will use laptops or tablets.
v By the year 2080, most of the ice on the Earth will have melted.
v People will live longer, because medicine will have improved.
v  Domestic robots will help with the housework :P
v People will have resided on the moon.
v By the year 3000, we will have discovered life on Mars, Venus or another planet.
v In the very distant future, we will have traveled to the whole universe.
v If we don’t do something for the environment, life will have vanished from our planet by the year 4000.

Michigan Writing: Letter

Dear Editor,

I am writing in connection with the advertisement that appeared in your newspaper about job satisfaction. I am a high school student and I would like to express my opinion on this issue.

First of all, as far as I am concerned, I believe that one aspect which makes a job more satisfying is the people who you work with. If you have a good relationship with your colleagues, then you will be able to cooperate more easily. Furthermore, a spacious and convenient working environment will definitely help you, especially if you have access to the Internet, too. What is more, it plays an important role if your profession is interesting and creative and not only profitable, since you will be willing to work overtime without complaining.

On the other hand, problems may arise when people are dissatisfied with their job. These are, in particular, psychological and financial ones. For instance, some people may not be as productive as they used to, because they are not able to keep their eagerness and willingness to continue their profession effectively. Moreover, they might feel depressed. The reason for this is that the job they are offered may not have any advantages and, as a result, they are not efficient. In addition, it is likely that they will not earn enough money and they cannot make a living.

I hope that my letter will be published and that my views will be taken into account.

Yours sincerely,
Christina Mavradonaki

An unpleasant experience

As Mark sat down, he felt something moving next to his leg. Ha had go on an expedition with his friends to Rwanda and one day they decided to camp to another area. They had already walked a long distance, but they hadn’t found the right place yet. So they stopped somewhere to relax as they were very tired.

All of the sudden, Mark jumped up and started running quickly. A little time later, he noticed that he had moved away from his friends and he realized that he had to get back. However, the jungle was thick and he was thousands of miles from their campsite. He didn’t know where he was going or what to do. He was terrified and completely miserable.

Shortly after, out of the blue, a middle-aged man appeared from the leaves. He was an explorer, as well. Mark asked him for help and he eagerly accepted to give him a hand. Fortunately, he did have a compass with him and managed to make their way to the campsite very easily.

They found Mark’s friends there, who were preparing dinner. Mark was totally overwhelmed and fantastically happy that he was back again.
