Different languages


I live in a city called Jaipur in India. Hindi is my first language but I've always spoken English too. People speak a lot of different languages in India. A lot of people speak English, but as a second language. Some of our languages are very old and not many people understand them now. I really like English - I think it's quite easy! I would love to learn another language, but at the moment I'm too busy studying!


I live in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil with my parents. Rio is one of the biggest cities in South America. Everyone in Brazil speaks Portuguese of course. I've been studying English at school for seven years, and I can also speak a bit of Spanish. I'd like to visit Spain one day and learn more of the language! The hardest thing for me about English is the grammar; I can understand what people say but I'm not very good at writing!


I'm from a small Village In China. I speak Mandarin and a little English. My mother and father speak Cantonese. I can usually understand what they say, but I can't talk to them in Cantonese! Luckily they have both learned English for many years and are really good at It. I've only been having English lessons for three years, but I love It! I'd like to study it at university when I'm older.

Joining a ballroom dancing club

By Pippa Cartwright

When I started college, I wanted to find a club to join. One of the first ones I looked at was ballroom dancing — a type of dance you do with a partner. The people there seemed to be having a great time, and it didn't cost much, so I decided to join.

The first week I went, I was really worried because the teacher told us that there were nineteen different dances we had to learn. But it's been fine. When there's a new thing to learn, he shows it to us lots of times and makes sure we're all good at it before we do the next thing.

When I joined, I didn't know any of the other people in the club because we all study different subjects. But it's been a great way to meet people, and I've made some of my best friends in the club.

One of the reasons we learn the dances is to enter competitions. I couldn't wait to do my first one. Before we started, I was a bit worried. But during the competition, my partner and I remembered everything about our dances. We were great. We didn't win any prizes, but it didn't matter - we loved it!

Joining the ballroom dancing club has been fantastic. In the past, I always did the same sports and activities, year after year, but ballroom dancing has taught me there's nothing scary about doing something you've never tried before. I still do lots of sports, but now I can add ballroom dancing to my list of hobbies.

Why did Pippa join the dance club?

  • She thought it looked fun.
  • She didn't have to pay for it.
  • She didn't like any of the other clubs.

What does Pippa say about the dance teacher?

  • He teaches them a new dance every week.
  • He often tells new members how good they are.
  • He repeats new things until everyone can do them.

What does Pippa say about the other club members?

  • She has become close to some of them.
  • She is on the same course as some of them.
  • She was friends with some of them before joining.

How did Pippa feel about her first dance competition?

  • happy to win first prize
  • upset that she forgot the dances
  • excited to take part

In the final paragraph, Pippa says

  • ballroom dancing is her favourite hobby.
  • she's learned not to be afraid to do new things.
  • she isn't sure which activity to try next.

Dear Joey,

I'm on holiday India and I'm having a great time. Yesterday, we had a guided tour of the forest and saw some amazing things. Our guide, is a really nice guy, told us to look out for sloth bears. While we were walking through one part of the forest, we suddenly saw one. was big with a long nose and thick black hair. The guide told us all sloth bears. They live in different countries in Asia and eat insects and fruit they look for at night. They are very noisy animals. They make noisy grunts and snorts as they walk around the forest. We saw lots other birds and animals.

See you soon!
