My last weekend was pretty good. I spent it in my hometown with my family. My mother and I walked our dog twice a day. I've watched some movies with my family in the evenings, we cooked some delicious dishes together and we've talked a lot about everything. So I think I spent my weekend very well.

Hello guys, I'm Nicolas from Brazil. I live in the city of Blumenau. I'm 13 years old. My weekend was very nice! I watched Friends, Dark (for the second time). I played with my dog. Her name is Lola. The lockdown is not so strict anymore, so I could go to the mall with my parents to buy clothes and have a snack. September 7 is the independence day holiday here in Brazil. So, we took the opportunity to go the beach, It's 1 hour away from Blumenau. At 6 I was back home and I called my friends for us to play Call of duty, GTA and Minecralf.

My last weekend wasn't very cool. I was always bored! But on Saturday I did my school homework and I met a new friend. I talk to them on my phone because I can't go to Sri Lanka to talk to them because I am too far from them. After I went out with my mum to buy a present for my father's birthday. On Sunday I packed the present and I stayed at home to do my school homework and English school homework. After my mom, her friend and I went out to go to the park, we ate ice cream and we went to a restaurant because it was night and after we went home with my father.

Something is wrong with Jack's voice. when it was time for my practise, it sounded like jack's voice was being fast forwarded. But this.video was helpful.

Submitted by editor_rachael on Sat, 04/13/2019 - 17:42

Hi Nishat!

 

We're happy this video was helpful! If you find it a bit too fast, you could try pausing it when it's your turn to speak, to give you a bit more time. 

 

Hope that helps!
