  1. Good morning.

    In my city, in the neighborhoods, the children play sports in the streets; they don’t stop if the covid-19 is in the place. They play basketball, softball, and soccer; all of them in different ages. The little children play in a team and the older play in other one. They have no problem with the sun, or the heat land; they play like the weather it is cool. We can see them playing every day of the week. They are happy doing that.

    Once of my hobbies is going for a walk in nature. I do it two or three times a week. Sometimes I go along and walk around my neighborhood; for one hour. But when I walk with friends I go to the park next to the lake, and walk for around two hours. I enjoy that moments early in the morning, greeting friends, drinking juices, knowing that the exercises are healthful.

    In my country people don’t go to the restaurants as frequency as American people do. My family enjoys eating at home with family members and friends that come over our home. But we go to restaurants once or twice a month. We enjoy different types of food; Chinese food, fried fish next to the lake, pizzas, ribs soup outside, and so on. Last weekend I prepared a barbecue at home; chicken and sausages, lettuce salad, and yucca and lots of soda. It was very delicious and there were 4 family members with us. Of course I drank some beers.

    Thanks a lot.

  2. Part 1: Sport
    In our country, Myanmar, one of the most popular sports is boat rowing competition. It is famous for rowing boats by legs in a small water village, Innlay (Nyaung Shwe). I would tell my guest from America about this sport because it is a rare sport on the world. This sport is not only our traditional but also a national sport. It is very famous throughout the country. As it is our national festival, it also shows our solidarity.

    Part 2 : Walk
    I would ask my partner to have a walk during the lunch time in the park at the back of our office. I would explain her the benefits of doing some kind of physical exercise. Sitting at one seat and giving concentration for a long time is not a good living style. Therefore, I would advise her to do walking exercise during her free time.

    Part 3 : Dinner
    In our country, eating out is very unusual. Families like to have dinner with all the family members at the home dining table. Likewise, if adults were at the hostel for their studying or job, they would prepare their meal and have the meal together. Eating out is very occasional in our tradition.

  3. Hello. I’m Danijela.
    Part 1. -Oh, great game.It was uncertain until the very end,but my team won. I’m very happy. Coungratulations.
    -What sports are popular in your country? The most popular sports in my country are football, tennis, basketball, and volleyball.You must have heard of Novak Djokovic. Yes, hi is tennis player number 1.
    -Oh, it was a great game. They played very well. It was very exciting. Yes, but very important that our team was won. Yes, I’m happy about that.

    -Mom, dad would you like to take a walk in the park after lunch? Yes great idea, the weather is sunny, we’ll enjoy in walk.

    – Even if I’m on a diet this time I have to try this delicious food.
    -I would like to order gnocchi with four types of cheese and prosciutto. And you? I would like a steak with gorgonzola sauce and lettuce.Let’s go in restoranut. We’ll be injoying in our favorite food.
    Good lesson olways makes me so happy.
    Thank you very much Maestro Sersea.

  4. Spending all of our free time sitting on the couch is not a good idea. This could be pernicious to our health. If we don’t use to workout, at least we should take a walk, even better if it’s a nature walk.
    In my case, some days during the week I take out my dog for a walk. It’s name is Kiko .

    Thanks for reading.

  7. Lesson 1.14.2
    ” Going for a walk” After the game” Having dinner”… topics of this lesson are very much interesting and related to our daily routine life . Word ” avid ” is totally a new word for me. I never heard it before. I have always been an avid of walk. I walk everyday for 40 to 45 minutes. Its a very good exercise to keep us in shape. Sometimes I walk with my husband and sometimes my friend accompany me. During walk we talk , discuss and share ours experiences. We exchange recopies for our dinners and lunches because both of our husbands are avid of good and delicious food. we talk about new restaurants.

  8. I live in a borough where there aren’t many children or old people to meet around and so it’s a quiet place. No one playing any sports in the streets or meeting for a small talks.
    As friendship is difficult to find. Every time I’m annoyied at home I go for a walk by myself. There is a beautiful open space together the City Hall where we can take a hike and can’t be disturbed. There’s a pond in the center and the retired people and old fishermen are allowed to pick up some fish. Once I’m walking, generally I spent about an hour and a half and then get back home for a delicious bath.
    In one side of the lake we can see several bars and restaurants which serve almost all kinds of food, from fried chicken to roasted schrimp. Invariably before getting back home usualy I sit at one table and eat some snacks sipping a can or two of a cold beer. That’s it.

  9. Greeting,

    After the Game

    Though, I am not an avid fun of sport. Usually I like to watch the final tournament or championship, and one of my favorite moment is when it take a penalty shootout to dicide the winner, it´s well known that in latin america the soccer ball is our favorite sport.
    I really enjoy watch a good match. It´s funny.

    Going for a walk
    Today, it has been a beautiful day, though I haven´t go out to walk, it´s healthier to walk at least for 30 minutes a day.

    Talking about food
    One of my favorite food is seafood, I talk about food all the time, sometimes we´have to look for a recipe to make an special food or to bake, grill, or simply when go to the grocery store to buy the ingridients to cook etc. I think that is essential to have full dominion of this topics.
