An adventure holiday

There are not many mountains to climb and caves to explore in Ukraine. But there are a lot of small forests almost around every city or town. So we can go to the country and have some extreme adventure like treasure hunt or "lost in the forest" game there. We don’t need to use any special equipment like skis, skateboards or roller-skates there. We just need our hands and brains. It will be very exciting to look for something hidden in the forest or find your way back home. You will need to cook your dinner and read the map. And you will spend time with your friends. Isn’t it exciting?

p. 55, ex. 2.

6. In winter, little Hans c) suffered from cold and hunger.

7. The Miller said: a) "There is no good in my visit to see Hans".

8. The Miller’s wife was b) pleased with her husband’s words.

p. 56, ex. 3.

I disagree with the Miller’s words that «when people are in trouble no visitors should bother them». When people are in trouble their friends should visit them and help them. Only true friends are reliable and helpful while selfish people think only about themselves. They never help their friends. They only take but give nothing in return. Such friends are worse than enemies.

p. 56, ex. 4.  

1. Hans was a hard-working and kind-hearted man because he worked in his garden all days long in spring, summer and autumn and he shared everything he had with his friend Miller and asked him for nothing. 2. I don’t agree that the most devoted friend was big Hugh, the Miller, because he never helped his friend Hans but just said that he appreciated their friendship. 3. I agree with these words because real friends should share everything when their friends are in trouble. 4. You can speak about something but do quite the opposite thing. So it proves that actions are everything while words are just words. Hans was a man of action because he shared everything with the Miller while the Miller was only a man of words who just said something but never helped Hans. 5. Hans proved to be a devoted friend because he always shared with the Miller everything he had in his garden and asked him for nothing in return. 6. A true friend does not speak much but does everything to help his friend if he is in trouble.

p. 57, ex. 5.  

1. If you want to have a friend — be one means that you should be a true friend by yourself and be ready to do everything to help your friend when he is in trouble.

2. When your friend is in trouble you should help him but not look for arguments why you can’t do it.

3. Only true friend will help you when you are in trouble. Other people will let you down and forget about you when you need them.

p. 57, ex. 6.

a) "The Devoted Friend" from the point of view of Hans is a person with noble ideas,

b) "The Devoted Friend" from the point of view of one of the neighbours is somebody who gives you something in return,

c) "The Devoted Friend" from the point of view of Hugh, the Miller is somebody who doesn’t want you to bother him when he is trouble.

p. 57, ex. 7.

1 think that Hans is more sympathetic to me because he is friendly and open-hearted. He has a lot of friends. He is also generous and unselfish because he always shares everything he has with his friend.

I don’t think that Miller is sympathetic to me because he is selfish and unfriendly. He is mean and greedy because he only takes but gives nothing in return.

p. 57, ex. 8.

Selfish people can’t be devoted friends because they are selfish, think only about themselves. They are greedy so they do not share anything

with their friends but only take and give nothing in return. Selfish people are not helpful because they never help other people when they are in trouble.

p. 62, ex. 1.

My first day at school this year was great. I was curious and excited because this year we are having new and interesting subjects. So we met new teachers and I hoped they would be friendly and kind.

I wanted to be good at new subjects and now I see that they are interesting and I do not have problems with them.

Specialized 8choolslyceumsgymnasiums are different from ordinary schools in the way of having additional classes like second foreign language and they usually pay more attention to Maths or languages because they have special Maths or Language classes. Their advantages are: additional classes and deeper studying of some subjects. Their disadvantages are: you have less free time and you have to study more so you get tired more. I would like to study in an ordinary secondary school because I like my school and my teachers very much.

The classroom should be big, light and comfortable, with a big blackboard and comfortable desks and chairs. The lab and the workshop shouldn’t be very big but there should be equipment for work. It should be equipped to make it a good place to work because we can’t work or study without special things.

There are a lot of advantages in a well-equipped classroom. First of all, lessons are more interesting and you can set some experiments in such a classroom. And I think the use of modern facilities is important not only at our Science lessons but at every lesson, Maths and Literature, Geography and History and so on.

Most of all I like interesting subjects like History and Literature because our teachers usually tell us a lot of interesting things about different people and events. I think it is really exciting. But some school subjects are really boring so I am not very good at them. I don’t like Maths at all because I do not understand it very well. I like Chemistry and Physics because they are very useful in our life. And I like Geography because it is always exciting to find out something new about different countries.

p. 77, ex. 2.                   

Angry Column!

It would be nice to listen to our boys performing on stage. And there is no dancing club at school. A lot of people at school like dancing but have no place to practise.

He gave me some information but it looked strange. The material was totally new for me so I asked my mother to help me with it. My mother had done well at school so she explained me everything. I did my homework easily and went to school the following day. But when the teacher asked me about my homework and I showed it to him he said that the class hadn’t discussed that topic yet.
