Subject: Mykonos

Greetings from Mykonos, Greece. We are staying at a hotel near the sea called Mykonos Village. We are
having a fantastic time! The weather is just perfect. The sky is always blue. The sun is always shining. I
love the hotel. I've got a huge room with a TV and a big bathroom. The hotel has got 2 enormous
swimming pools- one just for kids. I sunbathe every morning for half and hour. Right now Mom and bad
are reading books. Tomorrow we are going to visit the special island of Delos that is opposite Mykonos.
We are going to take a little boat there. I can't wait to see the lions and the other ancient things. We
are all having lots of fun. I hope you are having fun too. See you in a week.

Love, Carolina

Writing Task: What I have done and what I haven't done

My favorite sport is downhill skiing. You're outdoors


n a beautiful setting- surrounded by snow-capped
mountains. It's just you- the mountains- and the sky. 4

But best of all is the thrill of speeding down the


mountain- going as fast as you dare. You feel as if
you are one with nature, while at the same time you
are like a speeding train- with the wind whooshing
through your hair and the sun beating down on your
face. Nothing like it!
Writing Task: write an article The Rio-Andirio Bridge

The Rio-Andirio Bridge is absolutely spectacular. It was designed by Berdj Mikaelian and built

by French and Greek companies and is almost 3 kilometers long. It is the world's longest multi-

span cable-stayed bridge_and crosses the Gulf of Corinth near Patras. It links the towns of Rio

on the Peloponnese to Andirio on mainland Greece.

The real name of the bridge is Charilaos Trikoupis. When Charilaos Trikoupis was Prime

Minister- over 120 years ago- he was the first person to think up the idea for the bridge.

However it was too expensive to construct then.

Before the bridge was erected you had to take a ferry to make the journey. The bridge has got

two lanes in both directions and there is a pedestrian walkway. Experts consider the bridge an

engineering masterpiece. It was an extremely difficult site to span. The water is very deep and

there is always a danger of earthquakes.

The bridge was opened in 2004 and the first people to cross the bridge were Olympic torch

bearers, because the Olympics were held in Athens in 2004. It cost 630 million euros!

Calvin & HobbeS
Describe and analyze this document following the questions given.

a) Who are the characters?


b) Where does the scene take place? (give a clue)
c) What is going on?
d) Focus on Calvin's face: how does he look in each picture?
e) Why is this comic strip funny?

(--Calvin and Hobbes is a syndicated daily comic strip that was written and illustrated by American cartoonist Bi-1-1
Watterson, and syndicated from November 18, 1985, to December 31, 1995. It follows the humorous antics of Calvin,
a precocious and adventurous six-year-old boy, and Hobbes, his sardonic stuffed tiger. The pair are named after John
Calvin, a 16th-century French Reformation theologian, and Thomas Hobbes, a 17th-century English political
philosopher. Nearly 45 million copies of the 18 Calvin and Hobbes books have been sold.

Calvin and Hobbes is set in the contemporary United States in an unspecified suburban area. The strip depicts Calvin's
flights of fantasy and his friendship with Hobbes, and also examines Calvin's relationships with family and classmates.
Though the series does not mention specific political figures or current events, it does explore broad issues like
environmentalism, public education, and the flaws of opinion polls.

Writing task: film review Rio: 3D cartoon

• 3-0

Plot: Rio is a 3b cartoon movie that takes place in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro. The

movie tells the story of a blue macaw that was smuggled out of Brazil. When his crate fell off a

truck in America, he was rescued by Linda who named him Blu. Blu never learned to fly because

he was raised by a human and so the other birds make fun of him. Years later an ornithologist

invites Linda and Blu to visit Rio de Janeiro with him in the hopes of finding Blu a mate and

helping him to learn to fly. There he meets Jewel another macaw and falls in love. There are

many adventures including being captured by a group of smugglers.

Characters
Blu -a boy macaw who can't fly. He is shy and clumsy but very clever too.

Jewel- a girl macaw who wants to escape the rainforest.

Nigel - a cockatoo that is very mean and hates exotic birds like macaws

Linda - a human and Blu's owner

Rodrigo- a Brazilian ornithologist FROM THE CREATORS 0 ler ilker

Opinion

This movie was very entertaining. We learn about bird smuggling and how cruel it is. I liked the

fact that this movie mixes cartoon characters and cartoon people. The bird cartoon characters

are colorful and very amusing. The human characters are both good and bad. It is fun to see a

movie that takes place in such a beautiful city as Rio de Janeiro. And the music is absolutely

fabulous- it's mostly Brazilian and very cool.
