My love of nature

A. Sarah

When I was a child at school, I collected books about nature. My classmates and friends all spent their free time playing computer games, so to them I suppose I was a bit strange. I loved learning about animals from other countries, but as I got older I found out that my own country has interesting nature too, and that's what I like studying now. I do lots of drawings of nature, and I put them on my blog.

B. Pilar

I love birds and animals because of all the visits to forests and lakes we made when I was at school. It's a shame that things have changed so much now. In my opinion, children these days don't learn enough about nature, so lots of them are afraid of insects, for example. I have a great job because of my love of nature. I'm a nature photographer. It's brilliant, except for the early mornings!

C. Lia

A few years ago I read a blog with beautiful photos of animals, birds and plants, which made me start really looking at what lives around us. It was just a hobby at first, but now it’s my job as I visit schools and give talks about nature. I love it. The only problem is if I am asked to draw a picture. I enjoy it, but I'm terrible at drawing! I'm going to take some lessons to try to get better

13-year-old Alessandra talks about her favorite chatroom, Teen-Age

I joined a chatroom called Teen-Age last month. A classmate read about it in a magazine and told me all about it. She said it's a really great way to make friends with people in other countries. And she was right!

Everyone on the chatroom is a teenager. We share information about home life, music and films. Friends that I chat to often ask me about school life in Britain. One friend in Spain sometimes asks me to write the words of English songs for her. My favorite thing is finding out how to prepare food people eat in different countries.

Some of my friends on Teen-Age live on the other side of the world, so when I chat to them at lunchtime, it's nearly midnight where they are. My parents like it that I have international friends, but they get upset if I'm chatting to people all evening. They always want me to finish my homework first.

Chatting to people online is different from chatting to people at school. Some people at school aren't very friendly and don't want to talk much, but everyone I've met on Teen-Age is really nice. It's easy to talk about problems with them and they usually give good advice.

Many of my school friends have joined several chatrooms, but I won't ever do that. I like the online friends I have now, so I'll keep using Teen-Age. If I have friends in different chatrooms, it'll be too hard to chat to them all. 

How did Alessandra find out about the chatroom?
  • from a magazine
  • from someone at school
  • from a friend in another country
What does Alessandra like doing best on the chatroom?
  • learning new dishes
  • talking about music and films
  • finding out about schools around the world
What does Alessandra say about her parents?
  • They worry that she is chatting online while she is at school.
  • They think schoolwork is more important than chatting online.
  • They don’t understand why she goes on the chatroom every day.
What does Alessandra say about chatting to people online?
  • She never tells them about problems.
  • She gives them advice when they need it.
  • She thinks they are very kind.
Alessandra thinks that in the future she will
  • try other chatrooms.
  • stop using all chatrooms.
  • continue to use Teen-Age.

Tennis

The English name "tennis" comes from the French word "tenez", which means "to hold". When the first game of tennis was played hundreds of years ago, people their hands to hit the ball. Now, of course, we have rackets .

In the game of tennis, a player to get four points to win a game, and six games to win a set. In women's tennis, a player wins the match by winning two sets. This is the same in men’s tennis but, in some competitions, men need to win three sets to win a match.

If two people play against each other, it is called a singles match. If there are two players on each side, it is a doubles match.
