HUNGARIAN NATIONAL FOOD Meals in Hungary In Hungary breakfast is not a big meal. For example we just eat bread with butter or we eat cereals, rolls. Sometimes we eat eggs, too, but we don’t have much time in the morning so we don’t eat it a lot of times. School starts early so we don’t eat for a long time. Our usual drink is coffee, milk or cocoa. Nearly all adults drink coffee for breakfast. We drink tea too, but it’s not like the English tea. Lunch is the main meal. A lot of people go to a restaurant. Children go to the school canteen. Lunch has 2 or sometimes 3 parts in Hungary. The first one is the starter. We usually eat soup. For example fish soup, egg soup, goulash soup, broth and so on. Goulash soup is a Hungarian speciality. It’s made from stew, noodles, onion, potato and from Hungarian red pepper. Then comes the main course. The main course in Hungary is usually nutritious. We usually eat meat with smashed potato, chips or rice. We eat our Hungarian food, too, like stew with noodles. In our foods we put a lot of paprika. Hungarian dishes are always hot. We eat international dishes too. For example hamburger, pizza, hot dog and other junk food and there are fast food restaurants, too, like McDonald’s, KFC and so on. Unfortunately people in Hungary are starting to become addicted to them, but it’s really unhealthy. For lunch we drink (mineral) water, juice or sometimes adults drink wine or champagne at the restaurants. Sometimes we eat desserts, too. It is the third part of the lunch. We eat cakes, chocolate, candies or pancake. There are Hungarian desserts too, like zserbó. Zserbó is made from chocolate cream, jam, walnut and other things which are needed for other cakes, too. At Christmas time we eat szaloncukor, too. It’s a small stuffed chocolate in beautiful wrapping paper. In Hungary instead of tea we eat “uzsonna”. We eat it at about 4 o’ clock. At this time we eat cereals, fruit and bread with jam. Nowadays a lot of people don’t have uzsonna. We have our dinner at 6 o’ clock, but in Hungary dinner is a quick meal. We just eat cereals, eggs, sausages and so on. We eat with our family like in Britain. We always eat our dinner at home. Don’t forget you are what you eat! by André

WHAT TO DO AFTER SCHOOL IN CZECH REPUBLIC? Do you want to know what Czech students do after school? Student´s Life has a lot of different pages. Some students need to learn after school, or help their parents at home, but nowadays these things very few students do. I think I can speak for 90% of the students that learning is the least fun activity to spend your free time after school, far after shopping,doing sports, not learning ..etc. Many of us come home, throw the bag with textbooks somewhere in the corner of our room and goes to sit at the computer and play games, or write to friends who they saw a few minutes ago at school, through social networks. But there are among us some who come home and sit with an open book somewhere where there isn´t so busy. A lot of gitsl like watching series (Teen wolf, American horror stories, Skins, Vampire diaries, The walking dead, Once upon a time..etc), anime (Death note, Mirai Nikki etc.) or movies (Fifty shades of grey, Deadpool, The conjuring, Suicide squad, Alice in wonderland etc.) Boys favorite activities are for example football, hockey or basketball and other sports. There are so many activities that we students do when we leave the school building, but I think it would be too boring to write them all here. I hope that many of you have found yourselves in these few activities that I introduced. And remember-learning always takes precedence but sometimes we need to shut down.

WHAT TO DO AFTER SCHOOL IN UKRAINE? ARCHERY Let’s talk about our favourite after school activity. When I’m not at school I love to do sport, I like running, I like to play Basketball, Handball, but more than that, I love Archery. I practice Archery since 2007, I begin with a bare bow (with a grip, two limbs and a string). Two years later, my coach authorized me to mount a stabilizer with two little stabilizer to stabilize laterally and a bow sight. Now I use a compound bow which is more precise and has more power. The compound bow is more precise because he has a peep sight and a bow sight with a magnifying glass, and it has a lot of power because of the wheel cam who are holding the power back.

I want to tell you about my favourite movie. This film is very intresting and incredible! Actors were playing perfectly and it is one of the reasons why this film is great. There weren’t any second that I was bored when I was watching it. So, it is a drama movie about first love. As all standart films, good girl falls in love with bad boy. I don’t deny, the story is magnificent. All these races on motorcycles, quarrels with parents, escaping from school. All this is romantic and wonderful. But the ending of the movie disappointed me. They broke up . Soon she will marry with another guy and this is all. I recommend you to watch this film because it is so impressive and splendid! I believe, you’ll enjoy it at all.
