  1. Hello English learners,
    The big problem that I live with and, also many people around the world, is poverty. This immense scourge that threatens and affects a large part of the population on the globe. I want to find a solution to this problem.

  2. Hello everyone
    Jacob thinks ants are very, very interesting. What animal do you think is interesting? Why?
    I think like Jacob, ants are very interesting. But not just ants; all life on our planet is very interesting and important, too. All animals have a role in an ecosystem to which they belong.

    Jacob has a serious health problem that doctors can’t cure. He “lives with it.” What is a problem that you or one of your friends lives with? What do you do to help you live with the problem? This could be any kind of problem, for example, an economic problem, a medical problem, a
    family problem, a community problem.

    Well, our life is a gift from God, but life also means many problems. That is part of life and we must live with it. The most important, is the example of life that Jacob gives us. Assuming our problems and learning to live with them is a way to overcome them. This is the key to a good and enriching life.

    Thank you Maestro

  3. One of my friends has a serious health problem that doctors can’t cure. He has to“live with it.”His disease is vitiligo. The difference from normal people is that the color of his skin is uneven, covered with spots of different shades and shapes, some spots are only a single point, while some spots will exceed one square centimeter, Even a few square centimeters in size. His skin disease does not affect his normal life, but only affects other people’s impression of him. He is actively trying to reduce symptoms, exercise, and develop a good attitude to adapt to life.

    I think that Jacob is right, ants are a very very interesting creature. They have some unique capabilities, they don’t have years. Ants can lift 10 to 5o times their body weight. A recent study of ant’s sleepy circle found that the average worker ant takes approximately 250 naps each day.
    I like Parrots as they are highly social, smart, and can establish strong bonds with their owners.

    The answer to question 2
    Problems are part of life. Any individual has to face problems. Families have family issues, communities have community issues, health, job, and financial issues. The nature of problems is different for everyone. I am facing financial problems, causing a lack of funds to run my charitable school. I am trying my best and have put a request to all my friends and relatives to fund my school as much as they can. I am pretty much hopeful to get the donation, In Sha Allah.

  7. Greetings Maestro Sersea
    Personally, I think that the bees are very interesting insects, and really they have complex and diverse societies. They have leaders that guide them to perform the process to produce honey and work together in order to store food for the winter and the most interesting stuff they count with their own government, with queen and labors, that guide them, so that in this case they also are closest to human societies.
    Thank you so much
