SAM’S ENGLISH LESSONS
Hi! My name is Sam. I live in Poland in a beautiful cottage in a small village. My village is surrounded by lovely countryside with fields, woods, streams and a small lake. Opposite my house there is a big shopping centre with a multi-storey car park. My mother works there.
I go to school. I am a pupil of the eighth form. I love my English lessons very much. They are interesting and we have a lot of fun. We discuss different questions in English. We also do a lot of exercises, ask and answer questions, describe pictures, make up and role-play dialogues, play games, sing songs, learn poems and rhymes, read and create stories and jokes, prepare reports, learn to predict,
Compare and contrast, learn to explain quotations in our own words, make word charts, do project and research work. I do enjoy my English lessons.
How about you? Do you love your English lessons? Are they as exciting as mine?
I am looking forward to your answer.
