I attend a secondary school in Italy. I don’t wear a school uniform.
My school is quite big, but it’s a very old building; there is: the art room, the music room, the sports hall, the information technology room, the science lab and a small library. There are nine classrooms.
In my class there are 26 desks with 26 chairs, white and black boards, three windows and a door. There isn’t a cupboard because our class is very small.
My favourite subjects are maths, music and PE.
I hate history and geography, but I’m quite good at them.
There are 17 teachers. In my class there are 8 teachers.
Wednesday is a very hard day because we have three Italian classes and two of maths .
The school starts at 8.00 o’clock and finishes at 13.10. In the afternoon there are a lot of free activities: for example you can attend a latin course or mother tongue course.
FREE TIME ACTIVITIES
During my free time I practise a lot of sports: football, tennis and basket. My favourite sport is football. I play football twice a week with my football team, on Tuesdays and on Thursdays.
I really like football… that improves my health. When my football team and I play, we always have fun and our coaches are always happy with us.
I like also tennis. I play once a month with my friend. He’ s really good at it.
One year ago we broke a window of the bar near where we were playing.
The barman was very angry with us and we ran away.
My favourite hobbies are playing console games, reading adventure books/comics and riding a horse.
In my free time I like playing console games because it is very interesting.
My favourite console game is WolfTeam. It is a fantastic war game on the Internet.
I play with my friend, Lamine.
Flute (flauto) Saxophone (sassofono) Electric guitar (chitarra elettrica)
Keyboards (tastiera) Singer (cantante) Guitar (chitarra) Clarinet (clarinetto)
Piano (pianoforte) Bass drum (grancassa)
My favorite instruments are the guitar and the electric guitar. I love playing them with my friend Emanuel. My brother Andrew plays the drums every Saturday in the pub. My sister Lucy hates the drums but she likes the violin. My cousin Samuel goes to THE ConservatoIRE IN MILAN and he plays THE piano, THE saxophone, THE flute and THE clarinet. He is very good! My mum Laura is a singer but…..she is terribile!!!!
