15-year-olds in China do more homework than any other students in the world ďż˝ approximately 14 hours per week. In the world, 9 percent of children between 6 and 11 do not go to school.

Sticks and carrots “So how did you do in maths?” Emma asked Simon as they sat down in the bus one the way to their new school. “Terrible! I only just managed to get an E. We kept getting new teachers, I didn’t get enough help and in the end I just gave up. Anyway, I don’t really care. I got in anyway, didn’t I? But this year I’m going to try a bit harder. I’m gonna make sure I always do my homework and hand assignments in on time. I mean, it’s not that much of an effort, really. What about you?” Emma shrugged her shoulders with a look of indifference. “I got a B. Bit of a shame – my parents give me a hundred for every A I get and a bit of extra cash always comes in handy. I got A’s in English, History, Biology and Chemistry though, so at least I got some.” “They give you money? Really??” ”Yeah. And if I don’t drink or smoke by the time I turn 18 I’m getting a

car. And they pay me to keep playing the violin.” “That’s mad! Would you stop playing if they didn’t pay you?” “No, but they don’t know that,” Emma laughed. “That’s so unfair! I get told off if I get bad grades,” Simon said. “My parents would never pay me for doing things they think I should do anyway.” “Well, maybe that’s why you just got an E in maths,” giggled Emma.

BACK TO SCHOOL:

Transatlantic penpals Samuel Edwards 98 Oaktree Lane London WC1 59Q England

12 September

Hi Bonnie, Bet you were surprised to find a letter in your letterbox this morning. A good oldfashioned letter, envelope and stamp and all. I thought it was a bit sweet. And also, my mum thinks I need to practise my handwriting. Says good handwriting shows that you’re ambitious and conscientious and even more so in the digital age. Anyway, I want to start off by saying how happy I am to have met you. We had a great time in Malta, didn’t we? Was it just a lucky fluke that your parents started talking to my parents and your little brother started playing with my little sister? Or was it fate?

So are you back at school yet? I don’t know when the autumn term starts in the US, but over here we usually start at the beginning of September. I guess it’s called fall semester over at your place. We have autumn term, spring term and summer term, all of them divided into two halves and I’m already looking forward to the half-term break in October. So I started yesterday – new school, new teachers, new subjects, new classmates – and I’m feeling pretty positive. Over here you start what we call sixth form when you’re 16 and it’s usually completed in two years. Well most people do, but it’s not compulsory. First I wanted to do a vocational course, like healthcare or agriculture, but my mum persuaded me to do A-levels instead (my mum is very influential, as I’m sure you have realised by now :-)). A-levels are more academic, so I guess the plan is I go to university and get a degree afterwards. I’m doing three A-levels: History (because I’m into war games), Psychology (because humans are so weird and interesting) and Criminology (because I want to be a superhero and prevent crime).

The other students seem alright so far, although everyone wants to make a good impression in the beginning, don’t they? One of my old mates is in my history class, but apart from him everyone else I know has gone vocational or to technical college. Is education expensive in the US? Here, further education like A-levels are free (unless you go to a private school), but I think there is a tuition fee if you take them as an adult. University costs quite a lot, I think. What about rules and stuff? Are you allowed phones in class? They tried to stop it here, but now most people have a watch anyway. Everything is a lot more chill in college. No more fines for truancy. No more being treated as a kid (although taking responsibility can be quite scary). No more school uniforms (yes, I used to wear one – that’s me in the middle, last year ...)

Well well, Sam, I sure was surprised when I got your letter and although my first instinct was to text you, I decided to stay cool and embrace the letter-writing-thing.

So here I am. Back in school and missing the summer holiday (and you). Like you, we start at the beginning of September, but we only have two semesters (“terms”) per year. Unlike you, I’m back in my old school with the same old teachers and the same old friends. We start high school at the age of 14 so I’ve been here a couple of years now. We choose from different courses in English, math, science and social science, so at the moment I’m doing English literature, algebra, biology, chemistry and US history. None of which I’m very interested in. My grades are good, but not great. Oh, and PE, of course. PE is my favorite subject. And you remember I told you in Malta that I was up for a tryout for the high school basketball team? Well, I made it and I’m absolutely thrilled! So I have training most days after school and I’m also on the Student Council, which means I’m involved in planning various activities such as fundraising events and the yearly talent show. So it’s a busy life. And plan B after I graduate from high school – if I don’t get into WNBA – is probably to become a nurse or a police officer. Or maybe just stay forever at the Walmart checkout, which is where I work on the weekends.

Now let me answer some of your questions about rules in school, because we have loads of them (considering we’re meant to be the land of freedom). I think it varies between different schools (everything does over here), but we’re meant to turn our cell phones off or they will be confiscated, but people use them anyways. We’re not allowed to eat or drink in class and we’re only allowed to leave the classroom in emergencies. We don’t have uniforms, but we have dress codes. So you’re not allowed strapless tops, tanktops, mini skirts, ripped jeans, hats or anything that is too revealing. No gang-style clothing like oversized pants, hoodies, bandannas and gang-related symbols. Oh, and we have to carry our ID-badge at all times. As for the cost of high school, it depends. State-run public high school are basically free, but if you want a private high school it can cost anything from not very much to very, very much. I’m at a not-very-expensive private high school. It’s pretty average, I think. Well, that’s all from me for now. I’m off to do one of my daily chores – taking the dog for a walk – and after that I’ll be torn between my chemistry homework and YouTube. With a massive banana-and-peanut-butter-smoothie.

Tv-studio debate

speaking reading

Appoint a presenter, an expert panel and an audience. The expert panel should consist of a headmaster of an upper secondary school, a professor of education, a teacher and a father of seven children. Divide the audience into “for” and “against” and start the debate. The topic is “Should attendance at lessons in upper secondary school be optional?”. Examples of questions and statements for the presenter:

Can teenagers take responsibility for their own learning?

What would be the advantages of optional attendance?

What would be the disadvantages of optional attendance?

Who would attend lessons if they were optional? 18

Presentation – our school Work in groups of four or five. Imagine that you have been given the task to start a new upper secondary school from scratch. This includes the actual school building as well as the education itself, for example: subjects

grading system

school lunch

schedules

homework and tests

rules

teaching methods

digital devices

holidays

Prepare a slideshow presentation with text and images that describes your school in a creative way. You should also be prepared to answer questions. Present your school to the rest of the class and let the audience ask questions. Finish off by voting for the best school.

Tips: How to make a presentation Research: Make sure you know what you are talking about! Notes: Write key words or main ideas on small notecards. You can glance at these during the presentation, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting anything important. Don’t write too much on the cards – you shouldn’t read from them word for word when speaking. Practice: If you know what you are going to say and how you are going to say it, the presentation will be successful. Practice is also a way of finding out if your presentation will take the correct amount of time. Practise in front of friends/family members or a mirror. Confidence: If you have prepared properly, you will be confident in what you are saying. Then you just have to be confident in HOW you say it. It’s always good to smile at your audience from time to time. Use your hands when you talk to emphasize points. Try not to speak in the same tone of voice all the time. Remember to make eye contact with your audience – look at everyone at least once to make them feel part of the presentation. Finishing off: End your presentation in such a way that the audience knows that it is over! A summary can end with a creative thought or a provocative question. When you sit down, do so with a smile – even if you don’t get any applause!

Translate the following text from Swedish to English. Anna vaknade klockan 08.35, en timme senare än hon hade planerat. Hon måste ha glömt att sätta alarmet. Utan att tänka klädde hon på sig och sprang in i badrummet där hon tvättade ansiktet med kallt vatten och borstade tänderna. Med blixtens hastighet sprang hon nerför trappan. Hon tog en banan från fruktskålen och stoppade den i ryggsäcken tillsammans med sin dator. Varför hade ingen väckt henne? Var var alla? Hon hade inte tid att ta reda på det. Med fem snabba steg var hon ute genom ytterdörren och på väg till bussen.

When you have finished, read your text and take 15 minutes to rewrite/improve it. Double-check your vocabulary and pay special attention to grammar.

Tips: How to beat writer’s block Have you ever experienced writer’s block? You stare at the blank piece of paper or the empty screen and you try really hard to think of what to write, but you can’t think of anything. It happens to everyone sometimes, even professional writers. So if you get stuck, here are some tips on how to get back into the flow: 1. Stop thinking that you’re writing for someone else. Pretend you’re the only one who will read and let it all out. 2. Start in the middle instead of the beginning of the text. It is easy to get stuck on the first sentence, but you can always get back to that later. 3. Take a break and do something practical, like washing up. Keep your thoughts on the topic of your text and wait for sentences to fill your head. 4. Change your writing tool – from keyboard to pen and paper or vice versa. Change programme, change font or change the size and colour of you text. 5. Write a load of nothing – anything that enters your mind! Just keep writing until you gradually move into the topic you are meant to write about.

The possessive form

The possessive form The possessive form is used to describe ownership (the dog’s bone), belonging (Maria’s husband) or measurement of time or distance (one hour’s walk). There are two ways to describe ownership of a noun: Possessive ’s and possessive of.

Possessive ’s

grammar reading

Possessive ’s is mainly used when the owner is a person or an animal or to describe measurement of time or distance. There are a few basic rules to remember:

When the owner is singular, add -’s: Jane’s cat, the boy’s map, mum’s boat, the man’s house, next week’s meeting. Note that the pronunciation is changed when -’s is added to a noun that ends with an -s sound or similar: James’s (Jameses) car, the fox’s (foxes)tail, the horse’s (horses) head.

When the owner is plural and the noun has a plural -s, just add ’ after the s: The girls’ room, the dogs’ bones, three miles’ distance, four years’ suffering. Note that you only use -’s on the last owner if you mention many: Jack and Jill’s bucket, Liz and Charles’s tennis court.

When the owner is plural, but the noun does not have a plural -s, add -’s: The children’s toys, the sheep’s wool, the women’s books.

For some things, such as countries, places and organizations, it is possible to use either -’s or of: Australia’s prime minister or The prime minister of Australia. The world’s population or The population of the world. The government’s new policy or The new policy of the government.

Possessive “of” + pronoun/possessive ’s Sometimes we use both possessive “of ” and a possessive pronoun to describe ownership or belonging:
