An email to Sarah from Australia

Hi Sarah,
I read your email and I am happy to hear from you!I am going to tell you where I prefer to go on for holidays here in Greece.
Firstly,there are many places that Greece can offer for holidays but I'll tell you my favorite ones. The first place I like going to is my uncle's house in Chania.I like this location because my uncle's house is huge and his kids are in my age, (comma) so I can spend my time playing and chatting with them.Moreover,there is a fascinating beach near my uncle's house so we can go there whenever we want to.

(Change paragraph-the email is too long!)

Now that I told you what is my favorite place for holidays in the summer is, I'll tell you about my favorite place to go on holidays in the winter!Well, my family and I usually go to my granny's village because there is so much snow that we can play with it.But,because sometimes it gets boring, I have started taking my friends with me there, so we can all have a great time playing card games,snow games,watching TV and chatting of course.Furthermore,when winter's over,spring is next.My favorite location to spend my free days in spring is my cottage in Malia.I like going there in spring because in winters it's too cold and in summer it is too warm,so spring is the perfect time.When I spend my free time there, I always go to meet my friends and play football,basketball,volleyball,tell our news and play some video games,too.I enjoy staying in my cottage because I can visit my friends and play,go to the beach nearby and spend time with my little sister playing different kind of games and watching some nice series on television in the evening.Last but not least,my favorite destination to go in September,October or November is my friend's house outside of Heraklion.I like going there because when it rains for the first time, we can see the rain through my friend's window and drink hot chocolate or play monopoly and that is really cozy!
To sum up,I have written to you about my favorite holiday destinations,one for each season of the year.I hope it will help you. (Full stop) I am waiting to hear from you again.

Your friend from Greece,Manolis

Watching, discussing and reflecting on "Freedom Writers" with my teenage students: The ideal way to celebrate the International Day of Tolerance (16th November), especially in the light of the recent inhumane terrorist attacks.
An outstanding film on the value of tolerance and the difficulty, but also glory, of learning how to co-exist. Proof of the brilliance of proper educators and the extent of difference they can make, one person at a time, one class at a time, in an ever-changing multifarious world.

School's slides on tolerance:

Quotes as a discussion springboard:

Erin Gruwell: Maybe we should talk about art. Tito's got real talent, don't you think? You know something? I saw a picture just like this once, in a museum. Only it wasn't a black man, it was a jewish man. And instead of the big lips he had a really big nose, like a rat's nose. But he wasn't just one particular jewish man. This was a drawing of all jews. And these drawings were put in the newspapers by the most famous gang in history. You think you know all about gangs? You're amateurs. This gang will put you all to shame. And they started out poor and angry and everybody looked down on them. Until one man decided to give them some pride, an identity... and somebody to blame. You take over neighborhoods? That's nothing compared to them. They took over countries. You want to know how? They just wiped out everybody else. Yeah, they wiped out everybody they didn't like and everybody they blamed for their life being hard. And one of the ways they did it was by doing this: see, they print pictures like this in the newspapers, jewish people with big, long noses... blacks with big, fat lips. They'd also published scientific evidence that proved that jews and blacks were the lowest form of human species. Jews and blacks were more like animals. And because they were just like animals it didn't matter if they lived or died. In fact, life would be a whole lot better if they were all dead. That's how a holocaust happens. And that's what you all think of each other.


Eva: White people wanting respect like they deserve it for free.
Erin Gruwell: I'm a teacher, it doesn't matter what color I am.
Eva: It's all about color, it's about people deciding what you deserve, about people wanting what they don't deserve. About whites thinking they own this world no matter what, you see, I hate white people.
Erin Gruwell: You hate me? You don't even know me.
Eva: I know what you can do. I saw white cops shoot my friend in the back for reaching into his pocket, his pocket! I saw white cops come into my house and take my father away for no REASON except they feel like it! Except because they can! And they can, because they're white. So I HATE white people on sight


Marcus: I've never had a hero before. But you are my hero.
Miep Gies: Oh, no. No, no, no, young man, no. I am not a hero. No. I did what I had to do, because it was the right thing to do. That is all.


Marcus: Lady, stop acting like you tryin' to understand our situation, and just do your little babysitting up there.
Erin Gruwell: That's what you think this is?
Marcus: It ain't nothing else. When I look out in the world I don't see nobody that looks like me with their pockets full unless they're rapping a lyrics or dribbling a ball, so what else you got in here for me?
Erin Gruwell: And what if you can't rap a lyric or dribble a ball?
Andre: It ain't this.
Marcus: I know that's right.
Erin Gruwell: And you all think you're gonna make it to graduation like this?
Andre: I made it to HIGH school ain't nobody stop me.
Marcus: Lady I'm lucky if I make it to 18, we in a war! We graduating every day we live because we ain't afraid to die, protecting our own. At least when you die for your own, you die with respect, you die a warrior.


Erin Gruwell: So when you're dead, you'll get respect, that what you think?
[murmurs of 'yeah' from the class]
Erin Gruwell: You know what's gonna happen when you die? You're gonna rot in the ground, and people are going to go on living, and they're going to forget all about you. And when you ROT, do you think it's gonna matter whether you were an original gangsta? You're dead, and nobody, NOBODY, is gonna want to remember you, because all you left in the world is this.
[holds up Tito's drawing]


Miep Gies: You are the heroes. You are heroes every day.


Margaret Campbell: You can't make someone want education.

A letter

Hi Tom,
I just received your letter.This seems like a difficult choice so I'm happy I can help you!

In my opinion you should choose science for your main course.I believe that, because you can use science in ways that can help many people or even the whole humanity.Also since you were little you were very into science experiments and movies. Furthermore you have to enjoy doing your job in order to be successful in it,so I would definitely  advise you to choose science.I don't believe you should choose languages because in my opinion you would easily get bored with it and you would be unhappy with your job.Moreover I remember you being less interested in class when we had literature lessons than when we had lessons connected with science.

To sum up, I personally think that you should better choose sience because I believe that you will be more interested in it and you are not going to get bored with it.However It's up to you now!I hope that my letter was helpful.
Best wishes,

Writing: Entering talent shows

School children many times tend to enter TV talent shows,but is that good beneficial to them or should they avoid it?In my opinion, there are both advantages and disadvantages to it.

The first advantage is that if school children take part in a talent contest and perform in front of so many people, it can increase their confidence.Moreover, if they have a hidden talent, (comma here) they might be seen by a producer or a director and that can be a very good chance for them to start a promising career.Furthermore, (comma here) true friends will be happy for them and supportive.

On the other hand, (comma)there are also some disadvantages.Firstly, they won't be able to control the fake rumours about them at school.Also, many people that they thought were their friends might be jealous of them and start calling them names and spread rumours behind their back.Finaly, all that might interfere with their studies and lessen their time to do their homework.

To sum up,there are both advantages and disadvantages regarding this issue.However, in my opinion the advantages outweigh the disadvantages because I believe that if a school child doesn't care much about the rumours and has a talent ,it's better to use and evolve it while they are still young.

The best way to spend my free time

There could be many preferred ways for someone to spend his free time and they differ from person to person depending on the person's character,plans for the future,age and his mood.I usualy spend my spare time in many different ways depending on the situation, but which one of them is my best?

My best way to spend my free time is to be with friends or alone and play computer games or try to understand and use computer programmes.I usually have just a little free time after 9 o' clock, so I can't do something extreme or a sport.Also, computer games and programmes have helped me enrich my English vocabulary because sometimes I have to look up words I don't already know when they are important in order to understand the meaning of something.Moreover, I am very interested in using and making programmes and games, so this helps me understand how these things work.

In conclusion,the best way for me to spend my spare time is using computer programmes (new software) and playing computer games because it is the most suitable thing to do considering my character,preferences and my available free time.

My favourite sport .....

 My favourite sport is Badminton. Badminton is played by two opposing players and both of them  have to pass the suttlecock (suttlecock is the badminton ball) before It fall on the net. This sport include aerobics, agility, strength and speed. Since 1992 badminton has been an Olympic sport.
 I like it because you play alone, I mean that some times If you play on a team some of your team call you names for the fact that you have done something wrong . Last but not least I always play it with my best friends and this is one of the reason I like so much ....

More Safe Space for Schools

Dear editor,
I was interested in the article about more safe space for schools.
I have experience of this as once my friend fell and broke his arm because of a broken down spot in our schoolyard.

First of all, I absolutely agree that students need a place where they can exercise and be sociable.Also that safe outdoor space is important for keeping students in good health mentally and physically.It would be good to create a safer outdoor space because many accidents like that my friend had could be prevented.Furthermore, if a safer outdoor space helps students become more healthy, mentally and physically it should also help them to improve their performance at school.

On the other hand we could spend money on other things rather than making a safe outdoor space in order to make the students more careful and responsible.

Finally, I believe that students need a safer outdoor space in order to help them be healthier, perform better at school and prevent more accidents from happening.

Yours faithfully,

Essay about television

     Nowadays, most of people have at least one television at their houses. But is it always beneficial to watch it? In my pinion, we have two aspects to consider.
     There are some advantages of watching television. First of all, viewers have been given the opportunity to watch a variety of programmes on their screens. Consequently, all people can watch and learn from documentaries and they can also be entertained by watching their favourites films or cereals. Moreover, people can hear the news or watch sports matches. The second advantage is that if young children watch educational programmes the will surely reap the benefits.
     However, watching television has also some important diasdvantages. Firstly, people can be hooked on that screen. As a result, children and teenagers or adults may forget to do their homework or housework and fulfil their obligations. In this way all people may get in trouble. Another disadvantage is that all viewers are exposed to watch all those advertisements and their favourites programmes are interrupted. That may be very annoying.
     In conclusion, television has some advantages, but it has also some important disadvantages. If adolescents and teenagers use it in the right way, they will be entertained and informed. Furthermore, they will enrich their own knowledge.

~What's your favourite TV programme ?~

 Nowadays, television has conducted many different kinds of programmes: documentaries thrillers, dramas and many other series with a view to provide the viewers with a great number of satisfation. With regard to my favourite one, I would definitely choose a documentary, called "The Ancient Present", which is about 45 minutes per week.

 In this programme, there are two main characters: Evans and Leo. Both of them are experienced and high-qualified archeologists with an identified certificate in scientific researches based on archeology. As far as the plot of the documentary is concerned, the two men travel back to the ancient Hellas and try to show us the civilization of this period. Moreover, they show you the remains of many attractions and try to analyse what is hidding behind them. They talk to you about the music that used to be played, the food that the regions used to eat, the constitution they had and eminent personalities, like Plato, Socrates, Homer e.t.c.

 The reason I really like watcing this programme, is due to the fact that it is very informative and gives you information about your ancestors, the people who "built" the worldwide distinguished civilization you are in awe of today. It makes me eager for the next episode every time the previous one finishes. It is thrilling!

 From my point of view, we should all watch such good documentaries. I strongly recommend you watch it, because it is a great watch, from which you can learn plenty of things and feel like you are, or you have been to the ancient Hellas.

Should parents try to control their teenage children's behaviour? Why/why not?

From my point of view, the stage of the adolescence is one of the most difficult stages of life.When somebody is a teenager, because of his thoughts/ belief/ conviction that he has to prove to someone his maturity, he may express himself in a weird and mysterious way hiding his real feelings. Some people succeed in passing this period of their life quite easily, but others face difficulties and here lies the importance of the intervention of parents.

Teenagers, due to the fact that they grow up, they start to show some usual signs. For example, the annoying spots on the face, the steep raise of height etc and their behaviour at times changes.Parents are in desperation, they don't know what to do and some of them make the mistake of taking their child to a psychologist to examine what's wrong with him.I believe that this is really wrong and sometimes it can cause psychological problems to their child ,because he believes that his symptoms are not ordinary and there is a disruption in the family.

I think that being nervous, worried and stressed at an age like this is absolutely normal.In my opinion, people shouldn't be judged at this stage of the adolescence.Parents should let their children express their feelings however they want, but they should also be aware of them, because if they are uncontrolled they can do many strange things...

~The computer games judgement~

 This is a writing topic issue that was given by the FCE practice book:
"Playing computer games is a complete waste of time" 
I believe that this is a very interesting issue to discuss! Here is my view about it:

 Nowadays, the number of computer games users is increasing rapidly daily. 75% of adolesants play computer games every day and they are obsessed with them. However, are computer games a waste of spare time or a useful hobby that helps you increase your thinking ability?
 First and foremost, I could not agree more that playing computer games is an easy and helpful way to learn strategy tips, balance control, house keeping and sometimes they help your mind go wild. The thing you will learn depends on the game you will play. Opposites of this view believe that, instead of sitting on a chair, watching a monitor and waiting for the game to teach you all these things, you can learn them on your own by trying to fulfil them and see the realistic side of the world. For example, you can go out, hang out with your friends and have more fun than what you would have if you played games. I'm sure you will be more pleasant with your classmates.
 Furthermore, a basic and vital thing about computer games, is how they affect our lives. To begin with, I believe that it's not very good for your health just sitting on a chair and type some letters on a keyboard. Via this harmful habit, you lack in physical fitness and you start getting fatter because you do not excersise in a proper way. What's more, is that by playing computer games your social skills are highly reduced. You do not go out and chill  out with your colleagues and this results in no friendships at all.
 All things concerned, I believe that the disadvantages of not playing computer games outweigh the advantages of playing. In my point of view, I think that there are many more enjoyable things to do that spending your time playing computer games. Life is a journey not a computer game!

Questions from chatrooms

Chatroom Page: 65

  • If you could turn the clock back, what would you change and why?
   If I could turn the clock back I wouldn't change anything because I'm very happy with my choices.

  • Would you ever agree to go on a blind date?
   I wouldn't agree to go on a blind date. I believe that is really silly the whole thing and probably dangerous for the people who go on them because the don't even know who they are going to meet.

Chatroom P. 67

What's your favourite gadget and why?

What's your favourite gadget and why?

From my point of view, the best gadget of all is the tablet.I really love it, because I can do many things with it and it is very useful.The most important advantage of the tablet is that you can take it with you wherever you are and if you have 3G, it is really convenient, due to the fact that when you are outside, you can easily surf on the internet.Another advantage, is that it is touch-sensitive.Maybe at the beginning it is a little bit difficult but I am used to occupating with touch-sensitive gadgets and they are of course more convenient.Additionally, with the tablet you can do all the usual things like playing games, taking photos, saving files, writing down notes etc.
I believe that the only downside with the tablet is that they need charging, and the battery runs down quickly if you use many apps at the same time, in contrast with other gadgets such as the computer or the laptop that are ''plugged in''. Generally, I think that the tablet is an extra-ordinary gadget and I'm vert pleased with the improvement of our technology.

Advantages and disadvantages of being famous

 Nowadays, being famous is something that most people wish. When I was younger, I dreamed to be a pearson who everybody recognise and the want to be like him such us an actor or a singer. But fame has as many advantages as disadvantages.
 One the one hand, if you are a famous person you can do everything you want. You can travel to magnificent places, visit world famous attractions. You can also meet interesting and important people and buy expensive clothes for good appearance. Furthermore, you have got a lot of fans, that means you are well-known and you can achieve all of your ambitions.
 On the other hand, there are several disadvantages. You can not go anywhere because you are always in the spot light.Hundreds of paparazzies are waiting to take photos of you, and you have to be protected by bodyguards. Another obvious disadvantage is that you don't have enough time for your private life because people are judging you for everything you do. Usually magazines, newspapers spread gossip about you. Moreover, famous people sometimes have strange behaviour. For example, they use drugs and this is really bad fact. 
 In my point of view, being famous might be awesome and wonderful even though it is difficult to live with. So I disagree with Lisa and I think that there are famous people who take it all in their stride and have a great time although there are disadvantages.
