I overslept and missed my train,

Slipped on the sidewalk in the pouring rain,

Sprained my ankle, skinned my knee,

Broke my glasses, lost my keys,

Got stuck in the elevator, it wouldn’t go,

Kicked it twice and stubbed my toe,

Bought a pen that did not write,

Took it back and had a fight,

Went home angry, locked the door,

Crawled into bed, couldn’t take any more.

25. Dear Angela,

I have just found a few minutes to write to you about my rest in the summer camp. I have been here for five days already. Our group arrived at the camp last Friday and we have had busy days since then.

I have met a lot of new friends here. On Sunday we went boating on the lake. It was fun! I haven’t gone boating for two years and my friend never did it before. So our boat turned upside down and we got completely wet. It’s luck we can swim! But our small adventure didn’t make us upset. I have already learned some new songs. A boy from our group taught me to sing them a few days ago. And yesterday we went on an excursion to an ancient castle. It was a very exciting trip! I have already prepared a souvenir for you. But sorry, I have not much time. We are going to have a football match.

See you soon,

15. England and France are separated by the English Channel. In the past people and goods were transported from one country to another by ferries only. This way of transporting wasn’t convenient enough so the idea to build a channel under the sea was offered in 1802 by a French engineer.

It was named The Channel Tunnel and at that time it was recognized as the longest tunnel and one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Today the travel from France to England takes about three hours and 35 minutes of this time is spent in the underwater tunnel. But the engineers of both countries develop different ideas so that the work of the tunnel will be improved in the nearest future.
