 Date:Tuesday 13th November 2012

 Dear Thomas,

 Hello, thanks for your e-mail ! Congratulations on your teacher's initiave to organise a work experience programme ! I hope you will do well, if you follow my advice.

 I also worked in a similar programme last spring.Our then teacher,Mr smith got me to work as a waiter in a local restaurant for 3 hours every weekday. I took orders and served food to costomers.

 Since you like fashion, why don't you tell your teacher to get you to work in a clothes shop ? As for cooking ,if i were you, i would work as a chef in the local restaurant. Finally, regarding helping people , what about doing some volunteer work in the elderly home, dressing and cooking for them ?

I'm afraid ,I'm not free next Saturday , but we can meet this Friday afternoon to talk about it, in lunch-time ,write back soon and let me know .

 Best Wishes

When Katier woke up that morning she had no idea what it was going,to be such a strange day.
She got to school as usual ,but when she arrived , all the kids looked at her strangely, she was at a loss for words ....! Once she sat down, her head spinned around and everything else seemed like not to fall into place!
   She ran out of the class ,  went to the playground: unfortunately nobody was there.
While she was sitting at the playground, a small girl came up to her and asked  her "have you had a bad day ?"

Esperienze di un Lavoro Estivo

Cara Maria

Ciao!!! Come vanno gli studi in Italia???? E` gia` da tanto che non ci vediamo. Io ho una notizia piacevole!!!! Finalmente, ho potuto trovare un nuovo lavoro!!!!

     Poiche`  viviamo in un villaggio dei pescatori , tuttti sono familiari ed abbiamo il corraggio di chiedere ai proprietari  dell' azienda, se hanno bisogno degli impiegati  durante il periodo estivo , e come cosi` ,sono riuscito a trovare un lavoro in un negozio dei regali come commessa . Lavoravamo 4 ore al  base di giorno e, in turno, con un' altra ragazza. Sfortunatamente, lo stipendio e` stato 300 euro al mese!!!

La padrone mi sgridava spesso per motivi diversi: invece, e' stato un ambiente molto comodo e pulito  La mia padrone  mi incoraggiava di  essere gentile ai clienti,  ma, lui, e` stato  scortese agli   altri impiegati incluso me.

     Un vantaggio di questo lavoro  e' stato che l'orario  part-time  che mi dava  l'o…

Studi a Milano in Italia- (una lettera informale ad un' amico intimo) - (come preparazione per gli esami di maturita`)

Cara Giorgia

Ciao!!! Come vanno gli studi in Italia??? E' gia` da tanto che non ci vediamo. Io ho una notizia piacevole  per entrambi ....ho deciso di andarci a Mialno per i miei studi , lo sai, che amo in Italia!!!! E` l' opportunita` di mia vita . Fortunatamente, la facolta che voglio seguire dura solo per 2 anni ..voglio tanto andarci!!!! (via

        Il motivo e` che l' universita` di Mialno ha un' alto livello di Lettere di Filologia itallaina ..E' un ragione per praticare la mia pronuncia. Inoltre, mi aiuterebbe nell' approfondimento di storia e di cultura italiana ed anche di ottenere informazioni linguistici e culturali a trasmetterli agli studenti del mio paese.Non solo e` minimo il costo della vita in Italia minore di questo in Grecia, ma anche Milano e` la piu` bella citta` dell' Europa!!!! - senz'altro!!!! - coi negozi di abbigliamento classico, moderno ,elegant…

Come si fa` a superare un' accidente - caso fortuito??? (per prepararsi all'esame)

Cara Maria

 Ciao!!! C'e` da qualche tempo che non parliamo tra di noi. Ti scrivo per raccontarti delle mie notizie.  Sai che il Sabbato scorso Anna Vissi ha fatto un concerto qua' a Paros ed io ci sono andata a vederla..Sai, come appasionata sono di lei......

    Ma non puoi immaginare che cosa e' successo!!! Quando siamo arrivati con Gianni allo stadio di AOP  ,abbiamo realizzato che avevamo dimenticato i nostri biglietti a casa mia...Ma, per caso, mia madre se ne e' accorta e ce li ha portati immediatamente e cosi ` siamo potuti entrare nello stadio per attenderla!!!!!!- 5 minuti prima dell' inizio del suo concerto magnifico!!!!    (via

Dopo mezz'ora che il concerto aveva cominciato e quando Anna cantava con questa belissima voce che ha, probabilmente a causa delle luci ,le quali le folgoravano , non li aveva osservati, ha messo il piede in fallo sul gradino che le ha f…

Cambiare il modo di vita- assumere qualcosa di piu' igienico???? Risposte assunte da una nostra studentessa -candididata per gli esami d` amissione all' universita`

Cara Maria

Ciao! Come stai? C'e` da tanto che non ci vediamo , ma, sai, quanto stressata e pressata mi sento con gli esami d' amissione . Lo conosco che tu hai affrontato questo tipo di problemi e percio' ti capisco tanto.

    Qunati si avvicina il tempo , ho troppo stress per poter essere in grado  di superarli ; e in piu`, ho anche i miei genitori che mi sgridano!!! Inoltre, l' angoscia esagerita non mi permette di dormire almeno 8 ore di notte ed il mattino prossimo mi sento stanca morta!!! Un' altro problema , in questo periodo , e' la mancanza di tempo libero per impegnarmi di qualcosa altro oltre a gli studi costanti , intensi e ben-organizzati. Per esempio, vorrei fare delle spese , guardare la TV, navigare sull'internet per fare delle chiacchiere coi miei amici sul Facebook! In piu', c'e' troppo da studiare che non mi dia l'opportunita' di non fare niente altro!!!

     Per questi motivi, ho deciso di cambiare modo di vita! - per…

Composizione ( per la preparazione dell'esame CELI 3) -certificato per la conoscenza dellla lingua italiana


E' noto a tutti che lo sport e' ormai un fenomeno commerciasle e mondiale lo cui scopo e' l'esercizio del corpo umano e della sanita` del mente.
    Negli ultimi anni , pero`, con la sponsorizzazione del settore privato agli atleti ed al loro sport provoca dei problemi, i quali, pero`, creano tanta angoscia allo sistema atletico professionale che non gli permettino agire come vere professioniste . Qualche soluzioni faciliterebbero la vita propria??
      Per cominciare, la dipendenza di questi atleti sui loro sponsor gli obbliga di superare il se` stesso per migliorare la loro performanza. Loro, in turno, dopo una serie di allenamenti faticosi, giungono a ferite e lesioni che a volte gli escludono  dalle gare , cosi' gli atleti si distruggono fisicamente e la nozione della rivalita` nobile si perde. In piu`, la mancanza dell' infrastruttura , cioe` degli impianti sportivi riduce il ritmo ed i…

PET for Schools -Story Part 2 (CEF- Level B1 class)


A Strange Day:

When Katie woke up that morning, she had no idea that it was going to be such a strange day. She got to school  as usual, but, when she arrived, the playground, which was normally crowded with excited, noisy children, was deserted.At first, Katie thought that she was late and that lessons had started , but her watch said it was ten to nine. School started at nine o' clock. She wondered if her watch had stopped.

        The impressive gate was open, so she walked into the peaceful playground and up the steps into the school building. The  cheerful classrooms were all empty ,and there weren't any exhausted teachers anywhere. Where was everyone?

As soon asshe went back out into the playground, she saw the relieved school caretaker. He looked at her and smiled. "What's going on?", asked  terrified Katie. "It's not Saturday, ,is it?"- "No. The clocks went back an hour las…
