Formal letter to a politician

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to tell you about a demonstration in favour of a new community centre in our town, which starts on Sunday November 4.

 Community development must be the most important thing to deal with. First of all, community centres provide a meeting place and  base for activities for local people. According to the sources, a lot of people of the town would like to be involved in the city’s life. Secondly, community centre associations will be made up of local volunteers. We have already had enough people, who help to run the centre and everything that is organised there, for this job.

Finally, most of developed countries build community centre to provide basic services to poor residents and work to protect the environment. But what is very important for our town is to built a community centre where people could socialize, as members meet new people, build community awareness and team spirit, and participate in group activities.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfullly,


Mets
Mari Mets.

Report

 Purpose
The aim of this report is to analyse the results of a survey which was carried out among students of The Aru Secondary School. The survey indicates what kind of books are mostly liked and should be bought to the library.
Boys
Firstly, the research shows that the half of students questioned prefer thrillers and the smallest number of boys prefer poetry. A minority of those questioned prefer romantic novels. Thrillers have always been the most popular genre among boys.
Girls
However, the survey indicates that reading interests among girls are slightly different from boys.Romantic novels and historical novels are almost equally popular among the students questioned and cover about a quarter each from the results of the questionnaire. About 21 per cent of those questioned prefer thrillers and again, poetry is the least popular genre, covering only 17 per sent of the results.
Recommendations
In conclusion, I would recommend buying various reading genres to the library, althoug, historical novels seem to be most popular among all students. I would not recommend poetry books to be bought because both boys and girls do not prefer reading poetry.

Love story

It was a beautiful spring day and we were walking in a very beautiful place. I do not remember how we came to this place, but I have never seen such an amazing landscape. I was with my boyfriend Joe. I am dating with him about two years and love him very much. Sometimes I feel that he wants to tell me something but he cannot and I do not know why.
We were walking along the narrow path and there were millions of bright stars
in the sky.It was so romantic.On the right hand, the small river silently murmured.Birdies chirped.There was very silent and quiet.Suddenly,we appeared on a magic glade.It was fantastic. Butterflies flitted over our heads. Suddenly, music started somewhere: singing of birds, a grass rustle, murmuring of water. The nature tried to tell something,but I did not understand what.But it seemed to me that my boyfriend had guessed.He took my hand and looked me in the eyes.He pulled out from his pocket something like a small box.It was a ring.His voice was trembling and he began to breathe faster.And suddenly he asked: "Will you marry me?".My head swam,legs trembled and tears welled up in my eyes. And I whispered:"Yes..." He kissed me.
Now I am lying in my warm bed, I am thinking about the best day of my life. We were very tired and felt very happy to be back home.

Goals

What are the goals of my life? That is the most important question in my life at the moment. Every human has different kind of goals. Usually, for men the main goal is to become successful and have a well-paid job. For women - be a good mother. But of course there always are exceptions to all rules.
Firstly, being a woman I want to have a big and strong family, to have two kids and a husband with who we would live in love and peace.
Secodly, I cannot forget about my education. Right now the most important thing for me is finishing the school and get high marks in exams. After that, I am planning to study in the university in Finland. After having bachelor degree I will go to Sweden to get master's degree.
The last but not least is to do everything I could to make my dreams come true.
In conclusion, I would like to say that everything depends on us. We are writing the history of our lifes, not someone else. If you want something, do everything you can to achieve your goal. Just do it!

Dating

Arranged marriages are not common for Estonia, but nowadays they are largely practiced in places like India, Nepal, Pakistan, etc. Their benefits are numerous yet much can be said against them.

The main disadvantage of arranged marriages is that love takes second priority. Secondly, When marriages are arranged by parents, this does not encourage their children to make up their own mind about who to love and marry. Finally, шnterference from extended family.

However, the advantages of arranged marriages are numerous, such as risk of incompatability is diminished, because these two people come from families, who have the same culture, share the same religious upbringing, speak the same language. Moreover, a man and a woman share the same views of marriage and family and the chance of divorcing due to irreconcilable differences is not as strong as in western cultures. In addition, the big family has its own benefits. For example, if newlyweds have hard times, they can count on the help of their parents and in-laws.

To sum up, there are strong arguments both for and against  arranged marriages. I personally prefer love-match instead of arrange marriage, because I want to live the way that I want.

Review


Oliver Twist is a novel written by English author Charles Dickens. It was published in 1838. The first edition was titled: Oliver Twist; or, The Parish Boy's Progress. The main characters are Oliver Twist, Fagin, Mr. Brownlow and Mrs. Maylie.
This story takes place in the streets of a small town and it is about a small boy with a big heart, who escapes from a workhouse and who is an ordinary person caught up in events. After escaping from a workhouse he decided to travel to London. During his journey Oliver meets the Artful Dodger, a nice boy who offers his help. Oliver is taken to a run-down house occupied by Fagin and his boys. Then Oliver understands that he gets into the rites of pickpocketing. His first theft is not a success and he is caught by the police. Mr. Brownlow, the victim of the pickpocketing, takes pity on him and takes him into his own home. The end of the novel is sort of a "happily ever after"-ending, but I like that sort of thing.
In my opinion, it is very exciting book. It is really worth reading, especially if you like to read about children and their adventures. Unfortunately, nowadays this book is not very popular, but Charles Dickens is a great person and I do not regret that I have read this book.

How to reduce stress


Dear Mr. Teplov,

I am writhing to tell you about a stress which most of our students are sufferred from.

First of all, homework. Too much homework. When we come home we need to have some rest, some lunch time, but we have so much homework so we have to do it immidiately. And now it is almost impossible to do our homework without a computer. Trust me, I tried.

Secondly, problems with some teachers. It is very stressful to have an argue with an adult. We do not want to argue, we just want that they understand us. Of course, we are not angels but neither they are.

Finally, breaks. We need a separate room for spending our breaks in silence. Because we are tired from that screaming and noise.

Of course, it is impossible to solve the problem with teachers and students. There always will be arguments between the young generation and the old generation. With regard to homework, we will never have it less, but, at least,we can have none of it on weekends.

I am looking forwar to hearing from you.


Yours sincerely,
Elina
Elina Serõševa.

The younger generation knows best

A lot of people think that knowledge depends on age. In their opinion, when we are getting older, we get more and more experience; however, sometimes old people have too little knowledge about the world to know much.

I personally do not have the exact opinion. It depends on every person. Of course, nowadays it is very hard to study for teenagers. Some of them think only about a mark when the main thing is knowledge. But what did you want with exams starting from Year 9, when we are just fourteen, the pressure starts to build up and it seems that life is all about doing well in exams.

On the other hand, we can suppose that the younger generation knows best, because it has a better connection with actual problems. Old people usually are not interested in problems which do not concern them.

We (I mean the younger generation) usually do not know best when we listen to our hearts’ voice. Aged individuals listen to their mind what makes their decisions more responsible and smart.

To sum up, there is no people who are perfect and know everything. Both young and aged generation have some lacks in their knowledge. But I personally think that the only way to make our decisions good is to communicate with different people and learn on yours and others mistakes.
