The Younger  Generation 


It is true that today's young people grow up and live very differently from what our parents and grandparents used to live. From what I know, our lives are easier nowadays because our parents offer everything to us- we don't struggle to get anything!


 First of all,   most young people of my age still  grow up in villages- we're the lucky ones!- in  very quiet and clean places; and we should thank for that the town council that collects all the rubbish from the streets and all the proprietors who look after their houses and keep their fields clean, so we don't have much  pollution and we can play games freely onto the streets.
Secondly,  we still can get plenty of exercise because the area is flat, so we can walk freely from one place to another and run races on our bikes with all of our friends! Still, our parents drive us to school, when we're lazy enough to walk or when the weather's bad.
  Our diet is healthy, too.  We eat home-made foo…

Urban Jungle

Urbanism -Summary Writing (Cambridge Proficiency)

Urban Jungle:






Seagulls are leaving their traditional habitats and moving into towns to , both coastal and inland, where they are thriving on the ready supply of food left on rubbish dumps and dropped in the streets by visitors and fast-food customers. 

      Dramatic increases in urban numbers of these aggressive , sometimes oversized, birds have been parallelled by growing attacks on humans, domestic animals and other birds. Seagulls are particularly aggressive during their breeding season, but, their culling is environmentally prohibited.

Eating carrots helps you see in the dark - Level B1 Class

Image
Carrots contain beta carotene,  zinc,  and vitamins.




 Medical experts think carrots can prevent your


eyesight  from getting worse as you get older.. Unfortunately, however, carrots won't give you excellent night vision.



 It's possible that this myth started during World War II.




  They used radar, radio waves to see "enemy" planes at night.



 They wanted to keep their invention secret , so they claimed it was due to the fact their



 plane spotters ate carrots and as a result, they saw in the dark.



 Verdict: mostly false

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away" - the saying that passes down from generation to generation.





 Common sense tells us that apples can't guarantee perfect health. There's little truth in it.










 Eating crusts can give you






 curly hair- a common belief to take seriously, though.








   Probably,  there doesn't seem to be any scientific evidence to back this up.






 In this issue ,we'll try to separate fact from fiction.

Advice to Helen- Senior C`

Image
Don' t worry Helen. Maybe Jill feels that she can't do her homework by herself. Here's an idea. Sign Jill up for after -school course for 2 hours every day. Make sure that she does her homework with teachers and when she finishes at 16:00 p.m., she can get the school bus home.   When she arrives at home ,Jill and Helen can do the chores together and prepare dinner for all ,with the TV and the  phone locked by Dad.  So,all the family can have dinner in the evening, watch TV, phone friends  and their house is clean!



CPE /ECPE Essay : The merits of listening to music"

It is an undeniable fact that music features in all our lives. Simultaneously, it is widely believed that many members of our society undervalue professional musicians and, by extension, the teaching of it. In this essay, i will attempt to cover both aspects, as well as outlining some of the merits of playing and listening to music.

   What is the role of music nowadays? The reality is that music is more available to us than ever before. It is likely for us to listen to music on an MP4 ,a mobile, even to download music from the internet.
