  1. In fact, I tinker all the time. I repair everything, electricity and plumbing in the house. I grease the door and window gongs. I check all the time for locks and cuffs that don’t work normally. I’m fixing my bike. I sew my torn socks and mend my shoes. I am provided with a set of tools such as hammer, pliers, screwdrivers. This takes me sometimes a lot of time, I enjoy in the middle of all these tasks.

    1. when you have a goal to achieve motivation remains the sure thing to get what you want because there is a saying that starting from scratch is not madness, madness is doing pretending to be happy while suffering martyrdom.

  2. I like hiking which is the hobby that I learned from my father. My favorite way to spend time with your parents would be talking each other in our spare time.

    Really, with my parents I learned to love sports. Baseball and soccer were my first practiced sports, although I finally dedicated myself to soccer.

    I think is very important to learn to keep motivated if you want to be suscessfull. pacience and perseverance are the keys; it both keep you going.

    Discussion Questions.
    1) I have a hobby and special interest in cooking. My mother used to cook and her cooking would have been
    very tasty. She taught me cooking. I can’t cook like her but do try to follow her instructions about cooking. In my spare time, I read books on cooking and try to make them as my husband is very fond of eating.
    2) the new skill I am trying to develop and improve my English language. Sometime I lose hope and I
    get disheartened but the next moment I keep myself going on. The stuff you provide us about English Learning Language is amazing.

  6. Greeting Maestro Sersea
    My main interest and hobby that I have learned from my mother is to sew she taught me since I was a child. Sometime I have feel as if I have failed wheb I have been doing something because there’s differets stuff to do, mostly when I have to does or undo something, It’s interesting because I am not only recieving her advice also spend time with her and also I can make my own cloth.
    Thank you so much
