I did not meet anybody when I started to work so I felt alone. I worked there for 5 months.I learnt a lot of things.

I still remember the first time I went to the cinema.I was seven years old.

The day of my birhtday, my mother surprised me.She took me and my sister to the cinema.

I was happy.I loved watching the film on  cinema.I do not remember the name of film that we saw but I remember the film was about a dinosaur who search a new place for living.He don't have land because the icebergs was melting as a result the seal level rose.

Submitted by paula y pedro on Пт, 03/27/2015 - 17:04



I visited another country for the first time three years ago.I went to Paris.I visited to my cousin who was working there.I stayed in Paris for four days.

Before I took a flight, I was very nervous due to I cannot speak French.I liked Paris very much.I felt amazed when I saw the  Eiffel tower.

One thing that  I did not like was the cloudy weather because I love the sunny weather.
