The Fantasy That Came Into Truth

Once upon a time when the weather was cold and the period was called Christmas, two poor families who were living side by side in the streets helping each other with food, money that they somehow got. The elders of those two families were not eating much and giving it to their beloved children. Although the families helped each other but one of the families lost their hope and they were saying so to their kids, that one they soon enough they will die from hunger and cold. The children started crying, because they did not believe what their parent trying to consume them. The other family always advising to never lose hope and maybe one day that the fantasy and the dream will come true. They lived like one family.

One day a good looking man who was also rich was walking trough that street. When he reached to the families he wanted to speak with them and know there story. After he knew about the horrible thing that the families went trough said “I wished I could help you, but I’m sure your wish will come true. People say that Christmas is when the magic happens.” The man turned around and with the corner of his eye he saw that the kids were holding pillows and he wanted to ask one more question. “Are those pillows yours?” The children at once answered “This pillows are the only things left from our burned houses, so we don’t want them to be gone and we are holding them tight so we don’t lose them, even and night we put our heads on them and sleep, so no intruder can take them away.” The man smiled and whispered “It will”.  Turned around and left.

Finally the day of the Old Year to pass and the New Year come every one was happy even the kids of those two families, but the parents from one of the families where preying for a miracle and a fantasy to become reality, but the other parents where acting that they where happy, but from the inside they where hopeless. The night finally came and the two families went to sleep and as the kids said they were sleeping on their pillows.

And suddenly from between two buildings a man appeared and he was wearing a hat so it was hard to realize the identity of the person. The man slowly and carefully walked to the two families and took keys and a note out of his pocket. Slowly the man put the keys and the note under on of the kids pillows and left.

The next morning the families woke up and the kid immediately realized strange objects under the pillow. She took the note and the keys, started to read the note “You may not remember me, but we met once and that once was enough to make me help you. Those are keys for a house and the address is written below. This is my Christmas gift to you.” And an address was given bellow. The kid showed it to her parents. After her parents read the note, the young girl whispered something to her older brother and they both at once said “We lived together and helped each other for ten years and this time we will help you and we will still live together like one family in our new house. The hopeless family teared up and tried to say “But”. And the other family said “Shhh. I’ts okay, don’t worry about. The day will come and you will help us.” The two families started walking to their new house and they finally arrived. They opened the door and saw a supply of ten years: clothing, food, water and heating source and of course technology that will help them: fridge, TV, oven and so on. The two families that where now “a family” started tearing up, and the hopeless but happy parents whispered “so this is the power of hope”.

And so the fantasy and the dream became true.

Moral: It does not matter how the person looks from the outside, it’s important how the person looks from the inside. Hope will always be by your side, you just need to believe and feel it’s presents and when you do every thing is possible.

I am waiting for Christmas…

I think that all of us are waiting for Christmas with excitement: a lot of presents, puddings, carols and dressing the house and the Christmas Three with seasonal decorations. But me` I’m waiting for Christmas for unbelievable excitement, because usually at the time of Christmas I travel to Iran and to meet my relatives, such as grandmother, granddad, aunt, uncles and my dear cuisines. But my Mom and Dad stay at Armenia and celebrate Christmas here. Two of my best friends are born the same day that the old year passes. I personally think there lucky, because they get two presents from a person that day: one for their Birthday and one for Christmas. But in Armenia Christmas is fun as well, because I get to hang out with my friends, but you know it’s not that you always see and hang around with your relatives who live in other countries, but your friends, you see and hang around the whole year. At Christmas here in Armenia is hard, because every one is trying to get to buy Christmas sale products and pork meat, because it’s traditional to put fried pork on the Christmas table. And at Christmas Armenians drink wine, that’s also traditional. OK, that’s enough of traditional stuff now excitement. I am mostly excited for Christmas, that I’m going to travel and celebrate Christmas with my relatives. It’s not just me that travel at the time of Christmas, there are thousands of people that travel over the world at the time of Christmas. This is why I’m waiting for Christmas with excitement.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Listen and complete the weather forecast.

And now for today’s forecast. In the London area, the weather will be warm with temperatures of around 18C. Although the sun will shine for a while, we can expect some strong rain this afternoon. An that will make it feel quite cool.

Further north in the Birmingham area, things won’t be to good, I’m afraid. After last night’s thunderstorm, Birmingham is going to be very windy with an expected high of about 14C. But no more wind and rain today, at least. And finally, in Scotland, it will be sunny for part of the morning then windy later on. But not snowing like it was yesterday, fortunately, so the roads should be safer once the fog clears.

Ex. a Read this students predictions about life in the future. Complete the text with words from the box.

will be be like won’t be will happen They’ll do will learn we’ll recycle will find

What will life be like one hundred years later from now? I don’t know, of course. But this is what I think will happen.

First, I think that computers will be much important in our lives. There won’t be any televisions or DVD players or things like that. I think all those things will be part of a computer. And everything in our house will be controlled by computers. I believe scientists will find a way to make computers talk and think, just like people. That’s scary!

Also there won’t be any more pollution. Governments will find ways to stop pollution and we’ll recycle everything.

Finally, I think that there won’t be any schools. Some people say teachers will be robots in the future but I don’t think that’s true. I think kids will learn at home, using their computers. They’ll do everything online. (Great, because when they’re bored, they can have a bit of fun and play a few online games!).

That’s what I think about life in future, I think it’ll be very different, but very exciting!

Predictions about the world that the future will offer

I think that hundred and fifty years later there would be a partnership in human kind and aliens. They would help each other to survive in the amazing world that the future will offer. They would trade technology, food, education and culture. There world be schools opening in our mother land that would teach children the language of the aliens and of course schools that will teach aliens different kinds of human languages.

I think that hundred and fifty years later there would be habitats in different places in our mother land and outside it. What I’m saying is that, there would be houses under the water, under the ground, on the sky and on different planets. I also think that every single habitat would have it’s special harvest and investment is the future world. Like people who live under the sea or water would have an endless supply of fish and water, people who live under the ground would have and endless supply of materials and which are usually found under ground, people who live in the sky would have an endless supply of birds, people who live in different planets would have and endless supply of foreign materials, animals and objects.

I think that hundred and fifty years later the technology with be so developed that there would be machines which would understand what the animals say and how they feel. There would be electronic cars, planes, factories, trains that would not leave smoke after some effort and the oxygen would be clean and not harmful. There would be mobile phones that would easily turn into TV or notebooks. There would be computers that would easily turn into small and light weighted  boxes, which would be easy to take or put in your bag. There would be fast traveling devices that could get you anywhere you want much faster than a car, a plane or a train. There would be windows that can get bigger and smaller than their usual size and can show a picture that you want it to show.

This is how I see things hundred and fifty years later.
