Things Not Seen

This is my lending library book. It´s called “Things Not Seen” from Andrew Clements. It is about a boy of fifteen years old that discovers something one ordinary morning after he takes a bath. The “ordinary morning” becomes more interesting when he discovers he is invisible. He is not there. That is what it is. He. Is. Not. There.

A Person I Will Never Forget

Maggie was my neighbor four years ago. I still don´t remember her surname. I first met her the day I lost my hockey ball.

Her physical appearance wasn´t something to blame her for, she was in her mid-fifties. She had an oval face with two almond-shaped eyes. She was short and plump.

Maggie´s personality was amazing. She was a generous person and very honest. A nice, good-natured lady. She was very interesting, every time I visited her, she used to tell my sister and me nature facts and useful facts of life. Maggie was very cheerful and helpful.

This old lady loved her garden at the back yard. She was always in there. She also had a turtle called Pipo.  The turtle always had a flag pasted on his shell so he wouldn´t get lost.

However, I haven´t seen her anymore since 2009. I would like to see her again.

Describing Places

Would you like to stay in a resort and play tennis with different people? Pinamar Tennis has it, and more! It is located near Buenos Aires, in Pinamar.

It has a wide pool and plenty of tennis courts. It also has a big spacious garden. Pinamar Tennis is a resort of many cottages inside. There are streets in the resourt in which the comfortable cottages are located.  The peaceful streets have trees and green grass.

Inside the cottages there is a big living room full of pillows. Near by it stands the kitchen, the kitchen doesn´t have a wall to separate it from the living room. Up stairs there are two cozy and relaxing bedrooms. One bedroom has a warm matrimonial bed and the other bedroom has two beds one below the other.

I think this resort is very effective if you want to come with a friend familiy. I spent a restful and enjoyable holiday swimming in the pool and playing tennis. A very exciting place to stay.

 

Task -Pilar Pando

Task.

Correction:

This is a winter park. A snow-covered grass is what calls your attention.

There are a lot of leafless, naked and twining trees. A snow-covered bench and table near. It is a cloudy day and it is very cold. It is peacefull and quite because there isn´t a clear soul. It seems like everybody has gone. The sky is very cloudy, it is a scary sky. There is chocolate smell because near it stands a chocolate post. The snow is soft, delicate and slippey. But not rough. There are things on sale by a big tree standing near.

It is a nice park but it seems more like a desert. I like the silent and calm atmosphere and the idea of drinking hot chocolate in winter.
