Vanness – Tell me about the different groups of students at your school. Which group are you in? What do you all do that is different?
Vanness: In my school there are many kinds of groups. Each group have a settled  time to have a meeting. The members in the groups will do some interesting activities. I am in the math group, in this group the members will do some exams  and talk about different ways to do them. Also, the teacher will ask us some questions and if you answer it right you will be award and get some extra mark. Instead of always do math we also have more time to chat with each other if you can go to the classroom earlier and it is not time let for the lesson. At the last of the lesson the teacher will leave you some homework which he will explain next time.
