My favourite film

Kamilka, the Czech Republic

I like many films but one of my favourite ones  is Romeo and Juliet from the 1996. This movie is from Baz Luhrmann and it‘s the adaptation to Romeo and Juliet from  Sheakespeare but in the modern world of America in 20th century. In the role of Romeo is Leonardo DiCaprio! He is my favourite actor and I like him so much (but more when he was younger).

In the role of Juliet is Claire Danes. I love this couple! I like this film because it has done a very good cinematography job, it has good actors and because it‘s a story about Romeo and Juliet and I think that this story isn‘t only about love. It‘s about us. About people. Shakespeare wanted to tell us something like: Look at what we can become.

Tom, the Czech Republic

Firstly, my favourite film is Interstellar from director Christopher Nolan with Mathew Mc Conaughey and Anne Hathaway in the main roles. And one of the things I liked the most was the music by a famous composer Hans Zimmer (he also did soundtracks for famous films like Last Samurai or The Batman Trilogy). Because of this music (and many other things) the film is very unique and it has incredible spirit.

And on the second position there are these four films all from director Quentin Tarantino – Django Unchained, Inglorious Bastards, Kill Bill vol.1 and vol.2. In all those films very famous actors like Jamie Foxx, Christopher Waltz, Brad Pitt or Uma Thurman played the parts of the main characters. 

My town

Vojtech, the Czech Republic

I was born in Olomouc where I lived for ten years but three years ago we moved to Samotisky where I currently live. Samotisky is a small village near Olomouc. It has population about 2000 people. The weather in Samotisky is typical for our region. Winters are sometimes cold and summers are hot and dry. Samotisky is not a very exciting village but it is safe and clean. Samotisky is near the zoo in Svaty Kopecek and that is why everybody knows it. What I like best about Samotisky is that you can go for a walk to the forest and it is very relaxing for me.

My favourite book

David, the Czech Republic

Well, this topic is not exactly right… I don’t have a favourite book. But I have a favourite genre of books. And my favourite genre of books is… Fantasy.
I didn’t always liked fantasy the most, it had a war with Sci-fi (and still has), but, now it is my favourite genre of books. “And why fantasy?” you might have ask. Well, I don’t know. I think it’s because of the magic and creatures and so on. Yeah that might be it.

I don’t have a favourite author, but 2 favourite authors. First of them is Christopher Paolini, he did a really good four books old serie about a boy named Eragon (Ruda was talking about it); and the second one is Erin Hunterová. Now this is not a typical author, because it’s 9 authors in one. She (they) are writing a very good serie. In fact, it has 3 series and every serie has 6 books. But in czech there are only first five books of first serie, and in English there are a total of 10 books now. This summer will (hopefully) be released the sixth book.
So yeah, that’s it.

Ema, the Czech Republic

My favorite book – Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children is the first part of the trilogy, but still the best. The story is about Jake, his granfather and grandfathers old friends on remote island. Grandpa’s friends aren’t normal, quite the opposite. It started with stories and pictures and ended with ….. OK, no spoilers here :). It’s an adventurous, exciting and a breathtaking story. I’d like to write more about the plot here, but the amazing storyline doesn’t fit into a hundred words and ….. I can’t describe it as amazingly as it is when you feel the book in your hands and smell the new book. So maybe it will be best if you read yourself.

Karolina, the Czech Republic

My name is Karolína and I love Harry Potter movies and books. My favourite book is Harry Potter and Order of Phoenix, because I love how they practise spells. I do not really like Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows, it is boring for me. My favourite movie is Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban, because I do not really like Voldemort and this is the only film without Voldemort. I do not like Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire, I think the book is better. My favourite characters are Ginny Weasly, Ron Weasly and Seamus Finigan.

My life experience

Zuzanna Woźniak, Class 6a, Poland

In my life, I haven’t really done anything interesting.

Once, when I was eight years old, me and my cousin went to an aqua park in Warsaw. I remember that I almost got lost because I had come back to use the waterslide once again, so she had to search for me. That was probably the most “exciting” thing that ever happened to me.

I have visited a few different cities in Poland, which are – Warsaw, Gdańsk and Sopot. Maybe I have visited more, but I don’t remember. I have also been to a place called Wysoka Wieś (I just recently found out the name of this village, I did not even know that it was one). Outside of Poland, I have been to Japan, where I spent a week in Fukuoka, UAE, where I spent a few days more in Dubai and Singapore. This summer holiday I’m going to fly to South Korea.

I have tried to learn many languages – unfortunately, apart from Polish and English, I still can’t speak any. I can only call my basic German decent.

I have taken part in a lot of English contests, and in one I even got the first place.

I have never lived outside of Cracow, but the time I have spent in Warsaw where my cousin lives is probably a few months – I go there every holiday for even a few weeks.

I have also been trying to draw, but when I learnt some basics, I got a long break and forgot everything.

I have watched a lot of bad TV shows. When I’m with my cousin, we always watch a few of those every day because we like to make fun of them. I have also watched some good things, of course, but they aren’t even half as funny as those ones!

I have tried cooking. While I’m not horrible at it, I still have to train a lot. I find cooking really relaxing, I don’t know why.

My favourite animal

Ziemowit Hanasiewicz, Class 6a, Poland

My favourite animal is a snake. I really like snakes, they are very interesting! For example there is a snake that can kill a million mice with the maximum amount of venom (used at one time)! Snakes are also very nice to people if they take good care of them. It’s a little bit weird but actually snakes have cool skin. It is very nice to the touch!
Taking care of snakes is really hard! If you have a big snake you need to feed it with mice that are alive! What about small snakes? They eat small mice that don’t even have hair! You need to keep them in a freezer (they are dead of course).
My favourite snake is Boa, because it looks great. I have always wanted to have a snake in my house but my mum says that she hates snakes, and having one in home would be a nightmare for her. I’m a little bit sad about this…

My holidays

Gabriela Gradzi, Class 5a, Poland

My best holidays were last year, that is 2018. That trip was to Portugal to the island of Madeira. I was there with my mother, cousin, aunt and uncle. We were there 10 days. We flew by plane from the airport in Katowice. The departure was at 6:41. We flew six hours without any turbulence. I love to fly by plane.

We were in a botanical garden where turtles were large. We were at the Cristiano Ronaldo museum. The last two days of our stay the staff served ice cream for 2 euros. It was the best in the whole world.

Stanisław Kałuża, Class 6a, Poland

My best holidays that I remember was in 2016. We went with my family to Bosnia I Herzegovina in July. We were supposed to go to Croatia, but we decided to stay in Medziugorie, a small town in Bosnia and Herzegovina and commute to the Croatian sea.

We traveled to Medziugorie for over thirteen hours because we had to drive 1343 kilometres. On holidays we were fourteen days. During this time we visited Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We visited the old bridge there. We drove a lot to the beaches of Gradac and Split. We also wanted to sail to the island of Korcula, but we were late and the ship sailed away. When we arrived, we returned to the car and drove to see Dubrovnik.

I liked those holidays. We visited a lot of new places worth seeing.

Szymon Golonka, Class 3a, Poland

I like to spend my holidays at the seaside because I like swimming in the sea, playing on the sand and spending time with my family. I also like diving using a diving mask and flippers. I love to watch the underwater world and the fishes and any other water creatures. I like to sleep in the tent on the campsite. On the campsite you can make friends with kids from all over the world and you can improve your English. That is why I like to learn English at school. This year I‘m going with my family to Tenerife and I’m going to spend a lot of time in the water. I also want to discover the island – it’s nature and animals. I cannot wait to go there.

My diet

Gustaw Majcher, Class 4a, Poland

I like tasty food. My favourite food are pizza, spaghetti and ice-cream, but they aren’t healthy. I need to eat more fruit and vegetables.

For breakfast I like eggs and sandwiches with cheese and lettuce or bacon and tomato. I like some milk with cereal, too.

For lunch, I eat a roll with ham and ketchup, and some biscuits.

I eat soup and the main course for dinner. My favourite soup is cucumber soup. I like chicken soup, too. For the main course I like turkey with salad and rice or fish with potatoes and carrots. I drink some water and juice.

For dessert I like ice-cream or apple pie.

I also eat a lot of apples, oranges, bananas, kiwi fruits, raspberries, grapefruits and lemons. I like strawberries with cream and sugar.

Zuzanna Woźniak, Class 6a, Poland

One of my biggest idol’s name’s Kim Yerim. She was born on March 5th of 1999 in Seoul, South Korea.

Her stage name is Yeri, and she’s the fifth member of a girl group called Red Velvet. They debuted in 2014 with a song called „Happiness” under SM Entertainment, but Yeri was added into the group a year later because she was too young to debut at that time. Not so long ago, on March 14th, she also came out with her first solo project, „Dear Diary”. She sometimes takes part in writing RV’s lyrics, but she has also written songs for other artists since 2018. In the group, she’s a vocalist and a rapper, and obviously, she’s the maknae (youngest member). While with the other girls she may not look as interesting, her solo really shows how talented Yeri is, but not many people seem to see this.

In Red Velvet, every member has her own representative animal and color, and in her case, the animal is a turtle (because she resembles one) and the color’s purple. Her representative fruit is a violet grape!

Yeri was a student of Hanlim Multi Art School, and she had very good grades. She became a trainee in the fifth grade, and even though she didn’t debut in 2014, she appeared in the „Happiness” music video along with a few other girl trainees.

She’s really good friends with Im Nayeon, who’s a part of another girl group, TWICE, which is under JYP Entertainment. They even had friendship jewellery, which they wore very often for music shows. Yeri also has three younger sisters (one was born a year after her, and the other two are both more than ten years younger) that she’s close with. 

Yeri’s English name is Katy.

I think that she’s really talented and beautiful. Maybe she’s not the strongest vocalist or the best dancer, but since she joined the band, I haven’t been able to imagine what Red Velvet would be like without her.
