Young teachers

A. Peter 

Peter works at a school in a village. He lives with two other teachers in a guest-house for free. The house is only a five-minute walk to school. The school is very small; only sixty pupils go there. The school has a small library and a small hall which can be used for indoor sports and meetings.

He rents a house which is far away from school, so he goes there by bus. The school has pupils as well as teachers who have different nationalities. The school has everything the students need.
