There isn't any amusement arcade in my village but there is a big one in the city where my parents live. actually I don't like these places because the teenager who go to play are crazy and they want to make problems also I don't want to wrest my many on games and the silly staffs.

Actually i am really like computer games,but sometimes they are too boring. That looks so strange,but i think,that when you go to the beach you mustn`t play computer games here. But that`s just my opinion. Maybe you don`t think so.

In the amusement arcade in Toyohashi, Japan there is a UFO catcher. You can catch snack or goods by using a crane. You push the button and you can move the crane tot he position. Then the crane-catch the item. My aunt is good at this. I like a computer game called Find Escape Man. You have to find 10 Escape man on the stage. Sometimes it is easy to find. But some Escape Men are hidden and it is difficult to find. There are different occasions. My favorite is one at the Japanese house.

well, to be very honest , I live in a small town where there's nothing entertaining.we don't have any activities like that , I wish we had .concerning computer games, they are not my favourite at all, I prefer using the computer for the activities that may enrich my cultur... such as brosowing britishcouncil.org :D
And next year I'm gonna pass my bac exam so I'm trying to have a look on the program this summer.
Wish me luck guys XD
I wisn you all enjoyable holidays! have fun c:
