old. I’ve learnt it because it is a compulsory subject at my school and I find it very
interesting. Unlike other subjects, which can be easily make me asleep….English
lessons are full of fun and the teachers are often open-minded and friendly. Besides,
learning English helps me to widen my knowledge of foreign cultures. Personally I

for almost everything on the Internet in English.
