    Hello

    Thank you very much for this great lesson.

    My favorite pastime is the book reading. I love to read books because the book will remain my constant companion as long as I want. Besides, I could also discuss it’s events with my friends.

    My family decided to go on vacation.
    We talked about the budget to know how much money we need to spend during the vacation, then we discussed about the places we will visit during the vacation. We have to choose a destination that will be convenient for everyone.
    Our conversation includes also where we will stay, at a hotel or at a home rental. At last, we make sure that all the passports are up to date.

    I’m talking about marriage with my frinds. We found out that many people have fears about getting married to avoid the marriage fail. My friends told me that for most people the marriage is the pillar of how we do life and raise families.

    I’m getting married and the wedding consultant asked me for what kind of wedding I would like to have.
    – I want my wedding to be big and memorable.
    – Don’t worry. It can be small and memorable too. He said
    – you’re absolutely right.

    I and my friends are around a table drinking coffee and talking about effort. Our conversation leads us to find out that each one was determined to put a lot of effort to achieve his goals. Only the effort makes the difference

    Warm regards
