Four hours of free time

How do young people really spend their free time? Watching TV? Riding a bike? Doing extra homework? In a recent survey, we asked 1,000 young people to tell us exactly what they do when they have four hours of free time

Taking it easy

Most of the people we interviewed - over 90% - used the word 'relaxing' in their answers. Around a quarter of the interviewees play computer games, and over half relax by reading books, magazines or comics. Watching TV and using the Internet were very popular choices. Nearly three quarters of interviewees chose TV, and over 80% chose the Internet, as their favourite ways to spend free time

Other ways of spending free time

Over 95% of the interviewees chose more than one activity, and some of their other choices are very interesting. Nearly 10% selected gardening as one of their top activities, and 19% - nearly a fifth - chose sewing! Baking is also a very popular activity. Around a third of the young people we interviewed chose making cakes as a great way to spend free time. We're not sure how much time they spend eating them, but we don't think that will take too long

 

One night, a peasant went to the palace in the middle of the night so that he would be the first to collect money from the king. 'If I am first, then the king might give me even more gold so that I won't be poor and hungry,' the peasant said to himself

But when the guards saw the peasant at the palace gates in the middle of the night, they thought he was a thief. So they put the peasant in the palace prison.
The next morning, the king heard what had happened, and decided to go and talk to the peasant

He went down to the dark prison, and said to the peasant, 'Why do you want to steal from me? All you had to do was ask for gold so that you can buy food and clothes. Don't you know that I will always give it to you

The man explained that he wasn't a thief, but simply a peasant who was poor and needed help. I was a good farmer and a good businessman,' he said, 'until the droughts came and thieves stole my animals. The peasant looked at the king and said, 'I did not come to steal from you. I came in the night so that I could be the first to receive some gold in the morning, That is all, I promise

When he heard the peasant's story, the king felt sad. He told the guards to let the man out of the prison, and he gave the peasant ten gold pieces. The peasant thanked the generous king and left the palace with his gold

 

Hi Aisha

 Great news! We're going on holiday to Cairo in Egypt next month. Have you ever been there? I haven't, but I'm really excited about going. My cousin is living there at the moment and she told me all about it. She said that Cairo was one of the biggest cities in Africa, and that it was the perfect place to go on holiday because it was great for sightseeing tours

 She said that she often visited the Pyramids of Giza and the Mosque of Amr Ibn Al-Aas. She has also been to the Cairo Tower and the Khan El-Khalili market. She told me that the tower was very tall. She told me that the Khan El-Khalili market was exciting and colourful. She said she was really enjoying her time in Cairo. I can't wait to go

 See you soon, Hanan

My name is Sarah Kennedy and this is my report on Storm Kelly, which happened in Nebraska, USA on 14th June 2015

08:00 hours. Travelling towards Nebraska for a meteorology conference, we know that a storm is forecast for this area. Everyone is leaving and we are told the storm is going to be dangerous  08:17 hours. The first lightning is seen. Wow! The sky is dark like it is night and the lightning is so bright! The sky shines with a very bright light that makes it difficult to see. Crash! The thunder is heard 30 seconds later. The storm is getting close! Time to move.  08:20 hours. The storm is over our heads. The rain is becoming very heavy. Crash! A farmer's field is hit by lightning and is set on fire. The smell is terrible and all the crops are burning. The smoke is so thick it is difficult to see. The farmer's field is totally destroyed. 08:25 hours. The storm is slowly passing. The rain is still heavy but easing slightly. We are lucky to escape

Use of English: Present simple active and passive 

Active: The lightning starts the fire

Passive: The fire is started by the lightning

 

A lot of the energy we use comes from the earth. We make electricity from the earth's resources, like coal, oil or natural gas. These are called 'fossil fuels' and they are found deep in the earth - they are as old as dinosaurs 

But there won't be fossil fuels forever. If we use too much, they'll run out. Another problem is that fossil fuels cause pollution; for example, we burn coal to get electricity, and this pollutes the atmosphere. The good news is that there are some resources in nature which never run out, in other words they become new all the time. We call these resources 'renewable' and we call the energy we get from them 'renewable energy Renewable energy is also called 'clean energy' or 'green power' because it doesn't pollute the air or the water. Why don't we use renewable energy all the time? . Unfortunately, we can't keep wind and sunshine to use whenever we need to make more electricity. When the wind doesn't blow or the Sun hides behind clouds, we can't get enough power for
everyone

 Another reason we use fossil fuels is because they're cheaper. It costs more money to make electricity from renewable resources and people don't want higher electricity bills! Hopefully, renewable energy will be cheaper to make in the future, because the more renewable energy we use, the
