Many years ago, a special gift came to me in an interesting way. When I was a small boy, I enjoyed playing in my garden. One day, I found a hole in the wall of my garden. It was near the ground, so I could not see through the hole, but I knew that behind the hole was my neighbour’s garden. Who made that hole? I felt really interested, so I used rocks to make the hole wider. One day, when I was trying to break through the wall, I noticed a small hand appear from the hole. The hand was holding a rubber sheep. It was pink and it had wide eyes. I caught the rubber sheep.
Then I pushed my favourite wooden truck through the hole to give that child on the other side. Sometimes I bought toys with my lucky New Year money. A long time later, when I was old enough to go out, I went around the corner to find the child who gave me that special gift, but nobody was in that house. My neighbour said that a girl used to live there, and she was the same age as me. I never found her, but her gift has a special meaning for me.

First of all, flight attendants receive a large amount of training for their job. Careful training is necessary for this career. They learn about interpersonal skills, customer service, and safety.

Paragraph 4 AN One of the people that I most admire is my great-grandmother, Carla. She came to the U. S. from Italy in 1911 as a young woman on a large ship.
Soon after landing at Ellis Island in New York, she began working as a seamstress in Brooklyn. She met and married my great-grandfather not long after that. They immediately began their large family. Great-grandmother Carla had eight children – five boys and three girls. In addition to taking care of such a large family in a new country, my great-grandmother survived discrimination as an immigrant, two world wars, the Great Depression, and a long list of illnesses. However, she rarely complained, and she was very happy with her new life in America. America has surely brought her with happiness.

First of all, I must get used to a new kind of food. I am learning to eat a lot of hamburgers because they are not expensive and they are easy to buy. The people are different and I am learning to meet new foreign friends. For example, two of my friends are from Pakistan. Pakistan is also an interesting country to visit. The weather requires another kind of adjustment.
Some days, it is hot just as in my country, but on other days it is very cold and this is very strange for me. I came to the U. S. to study and I enjoy my classes and my teachers. I am adjusting to the U. S. in many ways, but it is not a problem for me because I like to know about different places and people.

We can drive, or if the evening is pleasant, we can walk. It has a nice atmosphere and friendly service.

The walls are soft yellow, and candles and fresh flowers are on the tables inside and outside. Finally, the food is excellent. The cook is the owner and he makes delicious dishes with fresh ingredients. We always enjoy our meals. Paragraph 8 My favourite restaurant is an old house. My husband and I enjoy eating there on summer evenings. We usually walk from our house so we can enjoy our neighbours’ gardens and get a little bit of exercise. The afternoon sun shines through the trees but it is not too bright. We arrive at dusk, and if we are lucky, we can sit outside. The waiter brings a basket of warm bread and a cold drink. We have an appetizer or a salad while the sun goes down. Then the waiter lights the candles while we enjoy the main course. By the time we finish dessert, it is night time. We walk home slowly, feeling full but happy in the moonlight.
