A FEW WORLDS ABOUT OUR TEAM

Zero writing skills, also the worst journalist that world has ever seen. But it’s not the whole announcement, I’m just getting started. You may ask – How can it be so dump? Guess right, I’m the only person here that deserves no stars.

I guarantee you nightmares every night, after reading this the first and only time. So dear reader, is it enough? 
If not, just just give me one more chance, and I will make you cry.

Hello!

My name is Mateusz Kowalkowski and I’m the freshman in Highschool number 9 in Gdynia. I chose writing in English in my articles, bcs it sounds really great in speaking as well as in writing! My main hobbies are typical for every geek, by this I mean computer games, comic books, movies and some TV-series. I’m also interested in airsoft (a kind of paintball, but more realistic, in which you shoot with plastie BB’s). I’m so excited about our school internet newspaper.

Hello Beloved!

Name – it’s not valid. Surname – by my dad. Age – different every year. Character – unique. Appearance – average. 
The one who listened to all songs. The one you will not understand.The one who counted 5 times to infinity. 
Who I am? - I’m a crazy person, but I see the world in bright colors. I stuff in the wind. I love everyone, I talk to myself. 
I do much more different. I don’t agree with the failure – make room, but I’m coming! :)

II. FIRSTLY SOME INFORMATION

 WHY WE CHOSE ENGLISH?

  • English is the most commonly spoken language in the world, but besides that It’s also the language of the Internet.
  • Many websites are written in English so you will be able to understand them 
    and take a part in forums and discussions with anyone.
  • Because of the fact that English is everywhere your dailiness will be easier.
  • Knowing this language also increases your chances off getting job in any multinational company or finding work abroad.
  • Regarding how easy learning English this days is, and how much it gives,   it’s a sin to not seize the opportunity.

 

ANGLO-SAXON COUNTRIES

Anglo-Saxon countries are countries in which the legal and political system are based on the British parliamentary system, culture and customs, in which are largely rooted in British, the population is largely derived from the British Isles, and the official, national language is English. By contrast, the English term Anglo-sphere is often extended to all countries where English and English cultural values dominate as a remnant of British rule.

English is the native language for approximately 375 million people and is used as a second language by approximately 375 people in the world. Around 750 million use English as a foreign language.

III. TIME TO FUN!

TONGUE-TWISTER

Tongue twisters is a fun and interesting way to practice pronunciation. Read the following sentences at a slow pace, and then faster and faster. It's a good idea to record yourself while you are in action and then listen to the recording in order

to check the correctness of the pronunciation and correct any errors. Good luck!

1. Betty Botter bought a bit of butter. The butter Betty Botter bought was a bit bitter and made her batter bitter. But a bit of better butter makes batter better. So Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter, making Betty 
Botter's bitter batter better.

2. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

 A woodchuck would chuck all the wood that he could if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

3. Sister Sue sells sea shells. She sells sea shells on shore. The shells she sells.

Are sea shells she sees. Sure she sees shells she sells.

5. There was one smart feller and he felt smart There were two smart fellers

and they felt smart There were three smart fellers and they all felt smart.



SMT TO KILL TIME - RIDDLES

Below we present two short but difficult puzzles. Let's try to look for a password! The answers we’ll publicate in next newspaper 

1. Never resting, never still. Moving silently from hill to hill. It does not walk,

run or trot, all is cool where it is not. What is it?

2. What can bring back the dead; make us cry, make us laugh, make us young;

born in an instant yet lasts a life time?

FIRST POETRY EVENING

 On February 28th in our wonderful High School for the first time we could participate in the poetry evening. We gathered in the school auditorium decorated in the style of a cosy cafeteria. We took seats at small tables where we could help ourselves to some delicious cookies and candies and have a small talk with friends. 

Some of our schoolmates and friends of all school grades prepared poetic pieces which they eagerly presented to us. We could listen to poems in English, German and French. We believe there was at least one pieces of poetry for everyone present in the auditorium to enjoy. There was also excellent musical interludes - songs in all three languages performed by our really talented mates. It was a truly enjoyable event. We hope that we’ll also be able to participate in the poetry evening next school year. 

So see you there!
