Once upon a time in a small but pictureque village lived a man who fall in love with a beautiful and kind woman and they decided to get engaged. So everything were ready and the happy new of a pregnancy was keep the couple company,but suddenly the man felt a bad turn.

Then his wife thought that it was a good idea to visit a doctor and they did it.bWhen they visit the doctor they surprised by hearing the doctor say that he needed immediate surgery. But it was something that it was necessary to be,so they encouraged each other and the surgery have done.

And as all storybook the best end could be "live happily ever after",but unfortunately the faith
had different plans.

The young man stayed to the hospital for a long time.His wife gave birth to a beautiful girl.
And that beautiful girl baptized latest with 30 godfathers who organised to offer the money of
the baptism in the man's health restoration.

The wish of his daughter who named Agapi and the wish of all his relatives was all the people
to make a wish and ask to return the health to her father.

So I wish with all the power of my heart the dream of that family and little Agapis to come true
and to live happily ever after!!Have good strenght and positive energy.

George Orwell 1984

George Orwell in his book 1984 describes a society in which people's lives were controlled
every second of the day by cameras and microphones.

His protagonist is Winston Smith who lives in Oceania and dreams a better life in which governments, Big Brother and the Thought Police could not rob people of their natural feelings, so family and romantic love could exist,and people of Oceania shouldn't change their feelings into a love of Big Brother and hate for imagined enemies.

Winston and his love Julia commit a thought and a love crime,but they've been caught by the Police and tortured. Winston finally betrayed his love to Julia and at the same time himself in his try to survive in that awful society which obligated his inhabitants to live into the hate and the control of Big Brother.

In my opinion, George Orwell is a timeless writer because many goverments are slowly taking control over people and there are cameras almost everywhere and computers have information about almost all the people.

But I believe that the most difficult thing for the protagonist was to accept to live and be part of that society, helpless to resist to the power of the authorities. At the same time, I wonder if people are becoming more and more similar in their dreams and desires.....

This is what the government said to the people.

Informal letter

Dear Kylie,

Thanks for your letter. It was great to hear from you. I can’t believe that you want to go on a similar trip to mine, because I thought that you don’t like ecological trips to study sharks and dolphins. Where do you live? What do you do in your free time? Do you deal with ecology?

I had a fantastic time when I went on this ecological trip last month. However, I didn’t go alone, but with teenage groups, who get together to improve the local environment. Firstly, we travelled by boat and then by mini bus. When we visited the sharks and dolphins, it was a beautiful experience. Although we didn’t get too near the sharks, I really enjoyed the experience. The dolphins were friendly with us and were really very beautiful from up close. I should warn you that the hours are many and you have to get up early. However, if you’re lucky like me, you will have a fantastic experience.

If I were you, I would take a video camera with me to take photos and video of the amazing places and the marvellous endangered species. I suggest taking waterproof clothes because the weather changes are frequent, and you will get wet when you visit the dolphins. It might be a good idea to take sun protection cream, too as the weather is hot and you will be under the sun for many hours. You will also need seasickness tablets.

Well, I think that’s all. I’m really forward to seeing you soon. I hope you have a good time. Bye for now.

Essay on mobile phones by Catherine

Marvellous mobiles

      The huge rise in living standards is due to the development of technology. This development led to the facilitation of communication among people, which became easier.

      Mobile phones are useful for keeping in touch with other people when you are away from home. Moreover, most people use the mobile phone in order to connect to the internet and find information from websites or online encyclopedias. Also, it is possible for sending text messages or calling for help in an emergency. Another possible use is taking photos or watching videos or listening to music. Furthermore, it can download films. It can be used for educational purposes, for example to write on a class blog. On the other hand, the development of technology has some negative points. It might be dangerous if people use mobile phones too much or when the people use them for hours. The mobile phone can become a bad habit.

      In the future, mobile phones will be smarter because of the technological developmentPeople will use mobile phones in cars, in homes and perhaps they will use them under the water as a waterproof camera. Also, it will be a very important part of our lives and it might be smarter with more functions.

      The future will be better with the development of technology and if people use the mobile phone wisely, thewill reap the benefits.

Talking about jobs

V: In my opinion it is very important to work in  a safe and pleasant workplace.Do you agree, my sister?

S:Yes you have got a point, but if you want  my opinion, a high salary is the most important  thing because if people earn a lot of money from their jobs, they possess a better lifestyle.

V:That is true .I believe people who work  with good colleagues feel better.They work more easily and they have got good  ideas about the business plans.

S:Yes you have a point,but a good boss is more important than good colleagues.

Review of a film

    One of my favorite TV series is "Breaking Bad".This film was directed by Cilligan and it is very interesting.The story is set in North Europe.
     In this film the protagonist whose name is Mr White has got a good family. He is a good and peaceful man  and he is a professor of Chemistry.Suddenly ,the doctor announces to him  that he has got cancer  and, after that ,he decides to make drugs using his knowledge   of  chemistry ,and after that  he makes  drugs ,so he takes the risk to sell them to earn money.The thought is terrifying ,but finally he does that...And all things change.
    Although the beginning is quite slow,the film becomes more and more exciting. The film has got action and the actors are believable .There are special effects, too.
    Although the end of the series is unfortunately  unhappy   and sad ,I recommend  it to you  because it isn t  boring and also it is thought provoking. In my opinion, it is my favorite series of all the series I have seen...

Give advice to some foreign friends coming to visit your family.

 Dear Philippe,

I am very happy to see you. I would like to give you some advice about the culture of my country.

First of all, you shouldn’t wear a suit and tie, when you meet my family. You should feel comfortable in my house and you don’t need to take a present. You should only shake hands with my father and kiss my mother. Αlso, you shouldn’t take your shoes off, when you enter my house. The food that we will have will be from Greek traditional cuisine. I hope you like it. 

I will wait at the airport. I believe you will arrive on time. I look forward to seeing you again!

Best wishes,

A review of a film by Catherine

       “The intouchables” is a drama film. The film is set in France the movie and speaks about friendship and social racism.
       The film was an enormous box-office hit in France. Philippe is a millionaire who was paralyzed from neck down, from an accident. Driss is a man who was a robber, from the Paris ghettos. Philippe hired Driss to take care of him. Philippe had finally found someone who was not only taking care of him, but also Driss made him happy. Philippe showed Driss how it is to live in an expensive house and how it is to have a comfortable life, while Driss showed Philippe how it is to live in the ghettos.
       The actors are very believable and have an excellent acting performance. The scenery is spectacular and interesting. The music is also quite good.
       Finally, in my opinion, the film is very interesting and suspenseful. I believe that the film isn’t boring and I would definitely recommend the film.

Oliver Twist

OliverTwist was a boy who was born in a house for poor people which was named workhouse,his mother died when she gave birth to him.From the age of nine Oliver had to work to earn a living.One day some of the boys who lived in the workhouse decided that Oliver should ask more food from the master of the workhouse.Oliver did that and the master got angry so he punished Oliver, he shut him up in a dark room for a whole week and he put on the gate of workhouse a notice which offered five pounds to anyone who would take Oliver.

Mr Bumble gave Oliver to Mr Sowerberry who prepared the coffins for the dead people.
Noah Claypole who lived with Mr Sowerberry made Oliver's life very unpleasant. After a fight that Oliver had with Noah and Mrs Sowerberry, he ran away.

Oliver was walking for seven days to reach into the little town of Barnet,a few miles from London.
In that town he met a boy named Jack Dawkins,near his age,he offered his help to Oliver and he told him that his friend Fagin will help him to go to London.Fagin was an old man who had some children and taught them how to steal so Oliver was among the thieves but he couldn't realize it yet.One day two children and Oliver went for a walk. To Oliver's surprise one of the boys took a handkerchief from a man and ran quickly with the other boy then Oliver understood what happened and full of fear began to run too, but the old gentleman named Brownlow (who had stolen) thought that Oliver did it and start running after Oliver and then someone hit the boy and Oliver fell on the ground.

A constable began to pull Oliver along the street when suddenly the book shopper appeared and told to the constable that the boy didn't do anything and then the old gentleman took Oliver at his house and put him in bed.

While Fagin was wondering where Oliver was Mr Sikes Fagin's friend got into the house,the two boys told Fagin that Oliver had been caught and Fagin was frightened that Oliver may tell the constable all about them,so he asked help from Nancy who was Mr Sikes friend.Nancy agreed to go to look for Oliver, she was pretenting to be Oliver's sister.When Nancy returned she told them that a gentleman has got Oliver but she couldn't find where he lived.

Oliver has found a better home,his new friends were very kind and they took care of him.
Oliver noticed a picture of a lady on the wall that her eyes looked so sad but the other day the picture was gone.One day a visitor named Mr Grimwig went to Mr Brownlow house he didn't really like Oliver he thought that child might deceived Mr Brownlow so he sent Oliver to the bookshop he also gave Oliver money.Mr Grimwig believed that Oliver won't come back.Oliver went to the bookshop but Nancy was there  and took him to Fagin's house.Fagin hit him and he kept Oliver shut up in the house for nearly a week,he told Oliver terrible stories and Oliver filled with fear as he listened to Fagin's words.Fagin gave Oliver to Sikes because he was planning to burgle a house,but when they went to that house Oliver tried to wake up the people of the house and unfortunately they injured him to his left arm and he fell down.When he woke up he saw a house and he asked for help,that house belonged to Mr Giles.Oliver was safe again to Giles house,he talked to Mr Giles and Mrs Maylie and Rose who lived in that house too,and told them everything about his life.

Spring passed and summer came but that summer Rose was sick and Mrs Maylie sent Oliver to the inn.In the inn Oliver saw a man who was very scared and when he returned he was doing his lessons ,suddenly he saw Fagin and that man in the inn outside of his window,and he started shouting.Everybody was searching for the strangers without success.

That stranger man named Monks went to Mr Bumble in the workhouse because he want to know everything about the old woman who looked after Oliver's mother but that woman was dead,then Mr Bumble told him that another old woman could give him the answers,so they met that woman and she told to Monks that Oliver's mother gave to the old woman Sally a little gold ornament,in which there weretwo pieces of hair and a plain gold wedding ring which has the word Agnes inside it and she wanted Sally to give it to the child but Sally never gave it,then Monks took the bag and threw it to the river,after he told them to keep quiet about all that.

In the other side Fagin was talking with Sikes and he was planning his another attempt to get Oliver back by Nancy's help,but Sikes had been ill for several weeks and ask some money to Fagin,so he went to his house followed by Nancy to give her the money but that time Monks got into the Fagin's house,he want to speak private with Fagin but Nancy heard them,so the next day while Sikes was sleeping Nancy went to Mrs Maylie and told her that Monks intends to pay Fagin to get Oliver back and turn him into a thief again,she also said that Monks called Oliver his young brother.

Oliver had the idea to meet his old friend Mr Brownlow so Mrs Maylie visited him and told him all about Oliver and Nancy's visit,together they decided to learn more about Monks by Nancy's help.
They met Nancy and she started to describe Monks but Charley Bates followed her and heard it all so he ran to Fagin's house to tell him.Fagin told it to Sikes and he murdered her then Sikes left the house.

Mr Brownlow caught Monks and took him to his house,he knew everything about Monks because Mr Brownlow was the oldest friend of Monks' father.He told him that Oliver is his half brother and he knew it but he tried every evil plan to destroy Oliver also Mr Brownlow told Monks that he couldn't tell anything to the police if he gave Oliver's share of the money.Monks agreed.

Then Mr Brownlow called Mr Bunble and told him that he is not a trustworthy person because he had helped Monks so he lost the position to be master of the workhouse.Fagin caught and sat in prison.Monks went to America he wasted all his money and died in prison.

Mr Browlow took Oliver to live with him and they moved to a house about a mile away from Mrs Maylie and Rose's house.It was a great joy for young Oliver to have his good friends so near him.

Write about my experiences in present perfect

I have visited a lot of beautiful places, but I have never been abroad.

I have seen a famous singer, but I have never played a musical instrument.

I have never played football, but I have seen a football match.

I don't have a motorbike licence, but I have had a (car) driving licence.*

I have had a lot of experiences, but the most wonderful experience that I have had in my life was the birth of my children.That experience was unbelievable, full of emotions.Every labour was different and exciting.The most difficult labour that I have had was the birth of my younger son.Unfortunately, I had my first surgery then,but things went well and even if I had a surgery then and I was feeling the pain, I have felt blessed because I have experienced that.**

Informal letter

Dear Julia,

How are you? I hope you are ok. I am writing to tell you my news. 

My family is very well! The children study every day all day because they have a lot of private lessons and this is very difficult. Now I will tell you about my beautiful and interesting trip to BERLIN!

I went there three  weeks ago with my friend. We went for the tourism fair, but there was also time to see interesting places. There were some museums, but there weren't any beautiful churches.

The people were friendly. Also, in Berlin there were very nice department stores where you can buy everything! There were some good restaurants with local cuisine, too. There was a huge grass area. It was very beautiful!

That's all for now. Please write to me soon and tell me your news. Say hello to all our friends there.

With love,

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

There was a boy called Tom. He had an aunt , her name was Polly. Polly looked for Tom because she lost him. She found him but he tried to escape because he took some jam from the cupboard and he knew that it was bad. Polly gave to Tom a punishment. He had to paint the fence into the garden but he wanted to play with his friends. Finally Tom's friends came into the garden to help Tom and all together did the work very quickly.


Tom went to find his friends. Then he saw some people. He asked someone for this. There was a new family in the town. He looked at their house and saw a girl sitting at the window. Tom fell in love with the girl. He learned her name and after he walked along the street, then he found his friend called Huck. Huck had a dead cat in his hands.


On the same night , they went to the cemetery and buried the cat. They heard something and then hid in the tall grass. They saw a man to kill someone. They were scared and they didn't speak to anyone about this. A few days later , they went on a raft to an island. When they arrived there, they were very happy but five days later they were bored with their games.Tom returned to his house and hid. He understood that everybody in the town thought the boys were dead. He went back to his friend and he told him.


The boys went back to the town and hid into the church. Soon people started to come into the church. They were going to have a funeral for the boys. Suddenly , the people saw the boys. They weren't dead. A week later Potter's trial started. All people and the judge thought that Potter was guilty but Potter wasn't. Fortunately the boys knew the truth and they said into the trial the real history. Finally Potter was innocent , the boys rescued his life. (You did not explain here who Potter was.)


After that the boys decided to look for a treasure. On the first day , they didn't find anything. On the second day the two friends went to the haunted house. The boys found the thieves' hiding place. Then the thieves dig a hole and found an another treasure. It was gold. The thieves took the treasure and left away.


A few days later, Becky and Tom went to Dougla's Island. They went into the cave with candles. After that , they were lost in the cave. Then they found the thief who took the treasure. They found the hiding place. A search party looked for the children because they lost them. Finally Tom found a way out .
