1. Read about Ann’s birthday party. Answer the questions after the text.
ANN’S BIRTHDAY PARTY
This year Ann is fifteen. She invited all her classmates to her birthday party. Everything was unusual that day. Ann decorated her room with balloons and flowers. Everyone wore special paper hats.
We sang songs, told jokes, played games and danced. Mike recited Ann a birthday greeting:
Count your nights by stars,
Count your days by smiles,
And on any birthday morning
Count your age by friends –
We all sang Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday, dear Ann
Happy birthday to you.
Nick took photos. Of course, we had tea and a birthday cake. I think everyone enjoyed the party very much. Ann had fun because she had many friends ever and she received a lot of presents. We had fun because we felt safe and relaxed. Besides we all had a good time.
