Help around the house (a survey)

We spent a few lessons in November talking about different chores and activities around the house. I asked my pupils to do a survey among their classmates to find out how much they help around the house. It was an interesting way for everyone to say something about him/herself, let alone practise the present simple tense and adverbs of frequency. 

We've also compared the lives of Serbian teenagers with those of British teens. Here is how a pupil of mine, Filip Ivetić from class VI3, sees the former:

Teenage Life in Serbia

Families in Serbia are usually big, but sometimes small. The parents are very busy, but most teenagers do not help around the house, so the parents have to do the chores. In the evenings, they often watch some films on TV.

Here in Serbia we go to school in shifts. In the morning, school starts at 8.00 and finishes at 13.10, and in the afternoon, it begins at 13.00 and ends at 18.10. The teenagers in Serbia do not really like going to school, and find it quite boring.

Like all teenagers, Serbian teens love watching TV, playing computer games and surfing the Net in their free time. Most teens have their Facebook accounts. In Serbia, it is the most popular messager programme on the Internet. On Saturdays, a lot of teens invite their friends to come over and they have lots of fun!
