MY FAVOURITE APP

My favourite app is Jetpack Joyride.It is a phone or tablet app and not a computer app.I like it because you can  improve your vehicles, buy jetpacks gadgets and even more.

Online homework assignments

     In today’s society a knowledge of computers is necessary and students should know how to use one. But should all homework assignments be done on a computer and sent by email to the teacher? In my opinion, sending your homework assignments by email is much easier, but might not be practical if you don’t have Internet access. Also, you may lose everything you’ve done so far if there’s a current blackout.

     Sending all your homework assignments by email has a lot of advantages and disadvantages, too. Students can make their assignments look good and it’s much easier for teachers to receive work. Also, students can improve their knowledge of computer technology. One more benefit of doing your homework online, is that it doesn’t take loads of time to write. On the other hand, not everyone has a computer at home and it is pretty difficult to stop children from copying from the Internet. Also, students need to practise writing by hand to prepare for written examinations. Last but not least, doing all your work on the computer may hinder your eyesight, too.

     In conclusion, I believe that giving your homework assignments straight to your teacher is better than doing it online. As I see it, schools should avoid giving a lot of homework online. A possible solution would be to do many exercises in class either with a computer or not, so that all students can improve their computer skills. Also, it would be better to give homework in class and not online, as students might lose their work.


"…and you have to send me this exercise until next Friday!!"

"Where can I find that exercise?? Uh oh!!"

"My exercise is ready!! Yes!! …oh, no!! I forgot to save it!! Tomorrow is Friday, I have no time to write it all over again!!"

    It is a well-known fact that playing sports is one of the best ways to exercise and improve your health. Of course, there are different types of sports that people can choose from. Some sports, such as basketball and volleyball are played while being in a team. Others, such as tennis, are played by one person only; that's why they're called individual sports. Both team and individual sports have advantages.

     Individual sports are certainly more convenient, mainly because you can do the sport whenever you like. Also, they are more likely to be done regularly, as you don’t need to tell anyone to come and play or practice with you. On the other hand, team sports are more enjoyable, mostly because you have fun while practicing with your friends and not alone.

     In conclusion, it is better to play a team sport in my opinion. You may have to practice rarely if a member of the team can’t join the training session, but you will never get bored while playing a game or exercising with your friends, as you have fun. Also, if your team beats the opposing team in a match, you can celebrate the win with all your playmates and enjoy the moment with people who played with you.

2 PLACES FOR CHRISTMAS

 

I'm lucky enough to live in Greece, one of the most beautiful countries in the world! There are many popular Christmas destinations all over the country that are worth visiting.

1st place for Christmas!

One of the biggest festivals taking place in our country, Dreamland in Drama will take you by the hand and lead you on a Christmas trip which will make you feel like children all over again . That's because the Public Garden and the city's Freedom Square transform into a real Santa Claus' village with consecutive events from December 4 until January 6. Plus the rest of Drama is worht visiting, too! Its gorgeous old buildings, the Byzantine walls , 
springs and winter landscape , promises to enchant you.

 

2nd place for christmas

 

In Thessaloniki , the shop windows are decorated from the beginning of November , the angels and the reindeer fly high , garlands and lights adorn the trees which occupy a special place and Santa does his best to convince passersby that this year his bag will be full of gifts again . The atmosphere is festive , the shelves of department stores are filled with games. Αlso you can go to star-world. There you can have fun with the games and the chocolate-factory.

Christmas Tourist Destinations

    I’m lucky enough to live in Buakhaga, Shueo. The area I live has lots of exciting Christmas attractions. With more than one million visitors every year, Shueo is the most worth visiting country in the world with loads of places to discover!

     One place that is a must for tourists is Gefu, also known as “Christmas-land”. In this part of the city there are  so many Christmas shops, that it’s like being in a Christmas Paradise! You can easily find the most fashionable Christmas clothes and shoes in great bargains! With more than a million shops, you will never get disappointed that you didn’t find the perfect Christmas present you needed. The strangest fact about this place is that it is even open in summer, selling Christmas stuff!

     The second place that shouldn’t be missed while visiting Buakhaga, Shueo is Maheti-Suriano. The thing that makes this part of the city special is its unique “Santa’s Factory”, where you can see Santa’s elves preparing your Christmas presents right before your eyes! Here, you can also talk to Santa Claus, learn Mrs Claus’s special recipe for Christmas chocolate cookies and even ride one of Santa’s reindeer! Some people call it “All Children’s Favorite Christmas Place” because more than ten million children visit it every year! Admission is very low, so every year more and more tourists are coming to this enchanted place!

     Both places give you a taste of Christmas time in Buakhaga and shouldn’t be missed. There are no tourists who got disappointed because they didn’t have fun while visiting these places.

         It was another bitterly cold and frosty December night in the North Pole. A frozen blanket of snow lay deep and crisp on the ground. Jack Frost had visited every home and had etched magnificent spiral patterns into every glass window. It really was the harshest weather that anyone could ever remember and it was two days until Christmas!

       Santa Claus was extremely busy adding the finishing touches to his Christmas preparations. He was shortly about to deliver thousands of wonderful Christmas presents to many excited children from all over the world. His elves were beginning to load masses of shiny gifts onto his sleigh and his brave reindeer were practicing their final manoeuvres before the big day. Everything was coming together nicely; Santa was very pleased with his team.

       The big day was already here. It was the 24th of December! Now, everyone could hear children singing the carols in every neighborhood. They were all so excited! "Santa will bring us gifts!" said a kid to his friend. "I don't think so…I had a fight with my mother yesterday, I'm not sure if I'll get a present this year" said the other one.

       Things weren't that nice in Santa's house. The elves had panicked! "Oh, no!", "Please, someone help us!", "What are we going to do now?"… They couldn't believe their eyes! Rudolph had just broken his leg, while playing hide-and-seek with Machi and Danica, two other reindeer!! He couldn't ride the sleigh, now! "Ho ho ho… what has happened here?" Santa cried. "Santa! Santa! Come here, quickly!!" an elf shouted. Santa started running towards Rudolph. "Oh, no! Now, how are we going to give children their Christmas presents we've been preparing for so long? Dorina! Take Rudolph to the nearest hospital! Take Aspasia with you, too! Make sure he will be okay." Santa said, totally shocked.

       While Dorina and Aspasia were on their way to the "North Pole's Frozen Hospital", Efi, Santa's best elf, realized that there were 1O presents missing!! "You must be kidding me!" Santa Claus whispered. He couldn't believe what was happening!! Nothing was okay! Rudolph had broken his leg and there were also many presents missing… At night they had to deliver the presents to children all over the world. Everyone would get disappointed if their Christmas Tree was empty on Christmas Day!

       Santa decided to find the thief. He wore his dark, detective-suit and his lucky hat and went out of his house. "Bill and George, come with me. I need you in this mission…" he said. Bill and George felt so proud of themselves! "We are important! Yay!!!" they shouted. "Shh… Miss Claus is sleeping! We should do this silently. Come here now, without singing this time". They were ready to catch the thief!

       Before they started their search, Bill saw something near an iceberg. “Can you see thoes footprints over there?” he said, “I think they will bring us closer to the thief!”. “You’re right! Let’s do this!!” George cried and they all followed the footprints.

     At the same time, Rudolph was at the hospital. The “North Pole’s Frozen Hospital”. Dorina and Aspasia were sitting at the… “reception room” waiting for Rudolph to bandage his injury. “He is okay for now, but we’re not sure at all if he can fly tonight.” a nurse said, in a sad voice.

     The cold wind was howling and almost everything was frozen. Santa, George and Bill were on their way to the thief, when, all of a sudden, it started to rain! The footprints were slowly disappearing from the ground and it was extremely difficult to see them now. Luckily, the footprints stopped in front of an enormous, wooden door. Bill said that they should knock the door to ask the housekeeper if he/she saw someone running in Santa’s lucky costume, holding loads of presents. Unfortunately, George was afraid to knock on the door, because he was afraid of haunted houses and ghosts. So, they had no choice. Santa knocked nervously on the door. A woman, who looked like a witch, opened the enormous, wooden door grinning widely. “Hello! What are you looking for?” she muttered. “Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas!! You see, someone has stolen about ten gifts from my sack! Now, ten children will get very disappointed finding nothing under their wonderful Christmas trees! Have you seen anyone in my lucky costume running this way, holding brightly wrapped gifts?” Santa asked the woman. She kept smiling for a while, but in just a few seconds she apologized for her terrible mistake. “Ohh.. I’m so sorry! I did it.. I saw your elves preparing some fantastic ballet shoes for Aspasia and a new, awesome tennis racket for Efi that I couldn’t believe my eyes! I thought it would be alright, as your elves can make new presents easily, but  I didn’t know it takes so much time! Now I wasn’t able to bring them back, but it’s okay you can take your gifts back now. As for your lucky costume, here it is. I’m sorry I did it! I will never do this again, I promise!” said the witch close to tears. Santa took his stuff back, smiled at her and asked her her name. “Maria! My name is Maria and I’d love to take my Christmas present this year… Please!” she replied while she was wiping her tears.

     They agreed for Maria’s Christmas present in no time and started running back home to check everything else they needed was ready. That is if the sleigh was freshly painted, if the gifts were all covered with colorful paper and most importantly if Rudolph would be able to fly!

     At home, Mrs Claus was still sleeping and all the elves were watching their favorite Christmas movie, “Rudolph Get Well Soon!”. “Hey! We have no time for movies now! Efi! Count the presents for one last time. Evaggelia! Check if the sleigh is still wet or able to fly and Lena! Oh.. where is Lena?” Santa cried. “Here I am! Sorry!!” she replied, with her mouth full of Mrs Claus's chocolate cookies. “I want you to call Dorina and Aspasia and ask them about Rudolph. Will he fly tonight, or we will use the flying carpet instead of reindeer?” said Santa.

     Santa felt his heart pounding fast. Aspasia and Dorina had forgotten their mobile phones at home! Oh, no! Fortunately, in a couple of minutes his elves came back with Rudolph. He was better now and the nurse said that he could fly tonight but not any other time during those days- at leat not until his leg was fine. Santa felt so proud of his team! The sleigh was dry, there were no presents missing and Rudolph would fly all over the world for one more time. In other words, they were ready for the best presents delivery ever!

     This year, everyone took their Christmas gifts on time. Every house was full of smiley faces and laughters. It was the best Christmas in history!
