The description of another friend

     This time I'm going to tell you about another good friend,George. George doesn't have a brother of a sister ,just like me.The reason I met George is that we went to the same kindergarten when we were only 3 years old.
      George is very very thin and if I'm not mistaken his eyes are black and his hair is dark brown.
      He's a very clever and mature child for his age.He's got a very good sense of humour ,too.He's always kind and really polite to the other children's parents.
      Last year, something terrible, but funny happened at my guitar lesson with George.We played the song well and people applauded. But unfortunately, we accidentally dropped  our book stand down and everyone laughed! I'm never going to forget that.

The description of a friend

I've got a lot of friends ,but today I'm gonna tell you about one of them, Lefteris.Lefteris is one of my best friends and I have known him for almost seven years.The reason I met Lefteris was his twin brother Manolis.I had met Manolis in my uncle's marriage when I first saw Lefteris

Well ,Lefteris isn't very tall, but he's taller than me.He 's almost 1.60m. tall!! If I am not mistaken, his hair is black and his eyes are brown to black.


He's very mature for his age, but he's really funny, too.He's always kind and gentle to other people's parents and when someone needs help he's helpful ,too.


Last year ,Lefteris, Manolis, Chris,who is another friend and me had arranged to come to my house after the Halloween school party to play all day.We played lots of different types of games;sports ,computer games and table games. Then, at night their parents came to take them and I told them 'Catch you later!'. This beautiful day is one of the reasons why I love my good friend Lefteris so much!

Aliens ate my homework

Today, as I was walking home from school, a spaceship landed in front of me! An alien with eyes like a cat and long spidery legs came out. "I am hungry he said" he said. "I have come to your planet in search of books to eat ". "Books aren't food" I said. "That's the craziest thing I have ever heard," said the alien." I love a good book! Right now I am craving a big fat math book."

He started to walk towards me , he took my bag and he ate my homework. Then I ran to my house. I told my mum about it and she advised me to do another project, but at the same time the alien came to our house and he ate my mum's work project. After that, my mum became very angry and she broke a pan on his head. Finally, he fell down and we chilled out.

From now on, the alien won't eat our homework again.

A crazy class

Today, all the pictures we drew in art class came to life.I drew an airplane and it started flying around the room.Then I drew a giant ox and it started messing up everything.Manolis thought that we could send the ox to another classroom, so he opened the door and the ox went out to the other art class."Our class has kicked the ox out of our room", said Manolis."Who agrees with me?" "We all agree!!"we shouted.

After that ,we started cleaning up the mess and drawing new beautiful pictures, without knowing that unexpected adventure was waiting for us.Someone drew a scary and spooky ghost and brought it to life!This ghost wanted to put down our teacher ,in public, so it drew a mirror that had the same opinions with it.

We wanted to stick up for our teacher and we threw water to the ghost and killed it.Then we made a spell that said"the painting can't exist if the creator doesn't exist ".It finally worked and we drew happily ever after!!All's well that ends well!

A formal letter

                                                                                                      13 Blogger street
                                                                                          September 29 2013
 Dear Sir/Madam,

   I am writing this letter to complain about a computer game that I bought from your company last weekend. I am sorry to say that your product does not work properly. I have got three problems to mention about my computer game.

  First of all, it is supposed to have three CDs with different games. I received three CDs that are all the same. Secondly, one of the CDs has got a deep scratch. Finally, as I was putting one of the CDs in my computer, I noticed that it did not have image and sound.

  I would like to ask you if you could help me with my problems. Could you please send me a new game with three different CDs that are working properly or could I have a refund? I am going to send you my receipt with this letter.

  I appreciate your help. I look forward to your reply.

      Yours faithfully,
      George Foreignakis


It was a stormy night in London with lots of thunders. Little Jack was sitting near the fireplace with his grandpa, watching the storm outside the window. Then grandpa remembered a story that happened a long-long time ago, when he was a young man.

Then he said to Jack:"Jack,boy, I want to tell you a story that happened a long time ago". "What's this story about?" Jack asked. "It's about me, my crew, my ship and an unexpected adventure" grandpa replied. "Were you a captain on a ship?" Jack asked. "Yes, I was. It was a really big ship, named"Saint James". It carried a special cargo, too" grandpa said. "What was it?" the little boy asked. "Gold" the old man answered. "So  what happened next?" Jack was curious to know about the rest of the story. "OK, everything started a cold  November morning. We were ready to leave Liverpool harbour. The cargo was on board. We wanted to transfer the gold to China. So, we left and our journey began. 

The weather was calm, during the most of our journey. At the 40th night exactly in the middle of our journey a storm full of thunders began. One of the thunders hit the antenna and all the electronic systems failed. The sonar stopped, too. We didn't know if we were going to hit on a reef. Unfortunately, we hit on it and our ship sank with the gold in it. I survived, but I was in the middle if the ocean , hanging on a piece of wood, alone. When I woke up the next day, I realised that I was on a strange land. I was hungry so I explored the island and I ate some fruits. I needed to build a shelter, too. I cut some branches and I made the roof out of banana tree leaves. I was thirsty so I climbed on the top of the highest mountain of the island to find the water source. I found enough water and I watched the view. 

Suddenly, I saw two trees in a strange cross shape in the heart of the island. I climbed down the whole mountain and I reached that spot. I started digging and I found treasure. I was rich, but helpless. That night I dived in the ocean to find food. A shark attacked me, but I hit him at the nose. I ate well and I slept well, too. During the night I heard the noise of a boat. Luckily, they saw me and I returned home". 

"Wow! Fantastic story" Jack said. "But there's something more" grandpa said. "What?" Jack asked. " These are the coordinates if the spot that the ship is sunk. I want you to find the gold when you grow up. Are you ready for an adventure?" grandpa asked. " YES, CAPTAIN!" said Jack.

Me in a interview!!!!!

Interviewer: How would you describe yourself?

Me:Well ,I 'm not always very happy ,but I'm responsible for my jobs, honest and polite with older people .I'm also very reliable because I easily keep all secrets.

Interviewer:What characteristics are important in a friend?

Me:A friend must always be honest and mature ,so he doesn't do silly things and he tells the truth.He must also be a polite person towards his parents.Finally, he has to be reliable for things that you don't want the other people to learn about them.I think these are the important things that a friends should do for a friendship.
