Hi! My name is Tom.


I'm twelve years old.
I live in Madrid.
I like doing karate after school.It's fun.
I learn how to fight and defend myself.

In the summer vacation, I go with the kids from my karate club to a carate camp.
We learn karate and have fun together.

Every year there is a karate competition in Madrid.


Last year I went to the competition and won a gold medal.
The only problem with karate is that you work hard and
you are tired! I don't want to be tired!

Hi! My name is Maria.


I'm eleven years old.
I come from Rome. I draw pictures.
I draw all the time.
I draw thing for my friends: greeting cards and posters.

Sometimes I draw in class, but my teacher doesn't want me to draw.She wants me


to listen to her. So I have a problem. But I love art lessons!

Last week I went to the art museum and saw some famous pictures. It was great!

Drawing is fun.
It's easy: you need paper and pencils.

Hi! I'm Roberto.


I'm eleven years old. I come from Brazil.
I don't like sport very much, and I'm not very good at it.

I like music. My hobby is playing the guitar.


Sometimes I play at concerts with other kids.
The only problem that my big brother plays the guitar too,
and there is only one guitar in the house.
He doesn't want me to give the guitar.
He wants it all the time! It's a problem!

Last month a famous rock singer came to Brazil, and I went to the concert with my
brother.
It was cool!

Hi! My name is Rita.


I'm twelve years old and I live in Israel.
I love dancing. It's my favorite hobby.

I don't like ballet, but I like salsa. I go to salsa lessons after school. The teacher is
really good!

At the end of the year, we had a salsa show. We had a lot of fun,and everyone said
we were very good.We made a lot of money from the tickets.
The money is to help sick children.
Dancing takes lots of time.
Sometimes I don't have time for my homework.
And I want to watch television,but I don't have time.
That's is my biggest problem.

sharp in our indoor hall. There will be a direct disciplinary
action from me to those who do not attend it without a good
reason.
Fitri : Then, is it going to be a must, Sir?
Mr Siregar : Absolutely, yes. Most of our employees seldom have their self-
exercise. I intend to reduce the health insurance cost. And
Friday Fresh is the starting point. All of us have to obey this
policy.
Fitri : Including you, Sir?
Mr Siregar : Yes, of course. The leader must be a model.
Fitri : That’s kind of you, Sir! When will it start, Sir?
Mr Siregar : Next Friday, at 7 sharp.

Fitri : Fine, Sir. I’ve got that. Anything else, Sir?


Mr Siregar : That’s all for now, I think.
Fitri : All right, Sir. I’ll do my work right now.
Mr Siregar : Thank you, Fitri.
Fitri : You’re welcome, Sir.
