My holiday (a letter)

Dear Mum and Dad,

I’ve been here for 3 days and I’ve fallen in love with this place. In Australia everything is like in a dream. The flight was good and without any problems.

The weather is lovely and the sun is shining the whole day. We are staying in a 5-star-hotel. The services are great and the best thing’s that we are near the sea, so we spend almost the whole day on the beach. The water is great, but a bit cold.

There’s an aqua park beside the hotel. I was impressed by the dolphins’ show the other day. There’s a popular festival here now which gathers singers, artists and entertainers from the whole world.

The food is really delicious, especially seafood.

The nightlife doesn’t know for boredom. We are in a different club every night.
I’ll buy you some souvenirs in some of antique shops. I’ll be home in a week.

Big kiss,

Your Aleksa

The Internet (article)

The World Wide Web, more commonly known as the Internet, binds almost all computers in the world.

It makes it possible for people to upload and download files from other computers, to send e-mails to their friends or chat online. People can find almost every information they need and they can use it even for personal education.

But, that's only a half of it. The Internet can also be dangerous, because there are many sites which are full of viruses and troyans, and some can be dangerous for children. People should be careful and pay attention to what they download or with who they talk and give names and other information.

Many people can't imagine their lives without the Internet and Facebook, and that's one of the saddest things that has happened to the mankind.

All teens use the Internet. It is very useful but sometimes it can ruin your health.
The Internet is very useful because it can give us lots of information. It is also fun for some games to play but you must not let it ruin your study.
However, the Internet is used wrongly by some people. They can hack in your computer and get you some viruses. It can also ruin your health so be careful.
I love the Internet and I will use it the right way.

The Internet is a great shortcut to connect people from all around the world. Every Internet address starts with www, which means ’world wide web’ and most end with com.
People use the Internet for almost everything. They use it to find information. The Internet also offers a lot of games that children can enjoy. It is used to find friends, too. The most visited site is ’Facebook.’
The bad side is that some people use it to hack some sites, like banks’ or of some corporations. It also has a lot of computer viruses so our computers often get sick.
I love using the Internet because I can connect with my friends from other places as well.

The most terrifying day of my life (a story)

Think of a scary experience you've had. Write your story:
P1: who, when, where
P2: what happened, how it happened
P3: what happened in the end
P4: how you felt
Use time connectors, such as: while, after, suddenly, later, then, immediately, etc.  

It all began on a cold day in autumn, on the night of Halloween.

Milan and I decided to go to Wanja’s place, so that together we could visit a creepy, and for me the most terrifying place in Kikinda. It was somewhere around old motel, close to Wanja’s. It was about 6 p.m. when Milan and I got to his house. Then we went straight to the old motel and instead of following the road we decided to take a shortcut through the trees, and then we finally got to the bridge, and the motel was right ahead of us. On the left side of the motel was a row of abandoned houses, without doors and with broken windows, in front of which were bushes, high grass, some small trees and glass all over the ground. On the right side of the motel were some kitchens for the homeless, the windows were also broken, and at the back was another row of homes, also abandoned and destroyed.

First, we looked around and then we went in one of the back houses. I was first to go in. When I stepped in I felt the rotten smell of death and it was very cold inside. I walked into the first room. There was a bed, a broken mirror and one window. The walls were all torn, ripped up and on some places even burnt. The bed was covered with a white blanket and there was also a torn pillow. Then we heard a noise. A woman’s screams somewhere in the kitchens. Then we heard voices and whispers at the window. We ran out and got back to the bridge. It was already seven o’clock. The night had already fallen. Then we decided to see what was on the left side of the motel. Wanja had a flashlight so he went first. We wen through the bushes and high grass and we got to the first doors. The door was lying on the ground and when we got to the entrance of that room it suddenly got warm. It was so dark so we couldn’t see a thing, but we knew something was moving in that room. Wanja pointed the torch at the room and we saw the same torn walls, the same broken mirror, and the worst of all, that same bed. Our hearts went beating like crazy, we wished that it was a dream, but it wasn’t. The bed was covered with blood and it was dripping on the floor. There was an open door on the right wall and we saw a bloody arm going through that door. Wanja dropped his flashlight, the room went dark again and everything got hot. At that moment it was almost as if our hearts stopped beating. We only heard the noise and screams in our ears. Then everything got cold again and we started running as if the devil was chasing us.

We safely got back to our homes. At that moment we were all relieved it was all over.

Filip always wanted to go to that old, scary house and now we were finally there. I was the leader, so I went in first. When we were in, we started looking around. I saw some old furnace and Filip found some coloured pieces of glass that we thought were precious stones. We were still looking for something, when, suddenly, the roof began to crumble and we were afraid. Filip started running towards the exit but I couldn’t because I was unconscious. When I came to, I felt being dragged by Filip. When we were safe we felt relieved.

It was about 11 o’clock in the evening. My family and I had just finished our dinner and wanted to go to bed. We were in our family house, as usual.

In the middle of the night, we all heard a loud noise and woke up. We looked at each other and wondered what had happened. At the same time the ground started shaking. It was a strong earthquake. It was much stronger than it looks on TV. We couldn’t move. We crawled to our basement as quickly as possible. The second we all went in, something huge fell onto our house. A cloud of dust and smoke was around.

When everything finally stopped, we went outside. We couldn’t believe what we saw. There was a plane crash, as well. The whole city was destroyed. We felt lucky to survive this natural disaster.
