Speaking


I living here for almost four years in October, when October ends. This experience had bring me happier. To know new friends and come to do somethings that before I can’t do I can’t get done. For example go to university, because I never been there, here was my first time. Come to learn Chinese and English too because before when I was living in Spain I never made that question I need to learn English Chinese.  I learned about which is the better things that other people have. To see the best things in other people. Because when you know some people you have too many friends but you, sometimes when you talk with some specific times they say something and you think he is wrong or critical but you never think about why the person say that. You don’t know what problem have or they life. you only think is the appearance.

Children worldwide are going on strike. They are unhappy. Their countries are not fighting climate change. Students are not going to class. They are protesting in the streets and outside governments. The strikes began in August 2018. A Swedish student protested and photos of her went viral on social media. Students are now copying her. In 2019, there have been strikes in Europe, America and Australia. Students held banners reading, “Why learn without a future?” There is a worldwide strike on March 15. Not everyone supports the students. Australia’s leader called for “more learning in schools and less activism”. A journalist told students to strike at the weekend.
