My best friend is going to be expelled from school. He’s an extremely lazy person. He didn’t write even one composition during the last term and he hardly ever did his homework. I offered to revise with him before tests but he never had time. He has already repeated a year so now according to the school regulations he has to change school. I had no problems with promotion to the third grade of secondary school. My certificate is almost perfect so I got a prize for one of the best results at school.

I wish I had brothers and sisters. I’m an only child so I’m always the centre of attention for my family. They are trying to plan my future without asking my opinion. My Dad wants me to go to a technical college although he knows I hate Physics, Chemistry and Maths. Mum would like me to attend a good grammar school. My grandparents oppose to co-educational schools so they’d rather send me to a private girls’ school. And I dream about going to a boarding school and staying far away from my family.
