Read the text. Then do Exercise 1.
Hi! I’m John and I’m 15 years old. I go to school on weekdays, so I don't have a lot of free time for activities. I spend six hours at school, and then I have English and French lessons. After that I go home and study. If I have some free time in the evening I watch TV or play a game on my computer. Apart from games, I also like to chat online with my friends. We only have one computer, so I have to share it with my sister. She likes to surf the Internet and watch music videos.
On weekends I like to spend my time outside. I play football with my friends at a pitch near my house. We have a team and we are training for the championship this year! It is hard work but it is very fun. In the evenings I usually go to the cinema with my friends or sister. If the movies are boring I go out in the evening with my friends and we play and talk. Sometimes we go to a fast food restaurant and eat. Usually, the food isn’t very good though.
I have a lot of free time during the summer when school is closed. I go to my parents’ village in Crete. I like to go to the beach and swim every day. I also water ski. I think it is fun and very exciting when the boat goes fast. Next year, I want to try other extreme sports too. Like bungee jumping! I think it is very frightening but I want to do it anyway. I don’t think my parents will let me, though.
This Christmas holiday I want to go snowboarding. I think it is very exciting and I want to try something new. Usually we stay in Athens. Hopefully, my parents will take me somewhere where there is snow like Parnassus.
