Hello. I’m Danijela.
In my free time I like to walk with friends and go to a restaurant, theatre, swimming pool, shopping or visit a church or basilica. If it’s hot I like to go to the sea or lake.
It’s very important that you spend your free time relaxing. We need to relax.
Thank you very much Maestro Sersea.
One of my favorite pastime has consisted in apply all knowledge adquired as university professor, during more than thirty years of academic work.
It has been very exciting to apply principles and law of physics in all aspects of daily life, from technology derived from them.
Another very important pastimes is sharing with our family and friends. Always, for dinner, a picnic, or a vacation is essencial; it is a good opportunity to grow and enjoy our existences
I have spent my entire life as a teacher. After my retirement, I joined an NGO ( Behbud Association Saidpur village ) This is a charitable organization. currently, my Pastime is to look after the schools. So I like and love to help the teachers as well as the students. I make worksheets, lesson plans and collect the recourses for them. That’s why I am improving my English language too. I believe in the learning process till the end of my life.
Spend time with the things and people that we love to share is the best.
You’re at a park and are talking about your favorite sports with your date. What would you say? What would your date say to you?
