What is your favourite film?

My favorite film is "Avatar". This film starts with an unusual man, because he had broken legs and his name was Jake. And then he started to work with some other people on another planet, because he had a brother and when his brother died, Jake had to work instead of him. His brother was a scientist and when he was working on another planet he created Avatar. Jake was working for 1 year. And he was able to learn how to survive with the help of one of the girls who lived in the village. After that he wanted to leave this planet. And then he reincarnated in the body of his Avatar.

So, we are interested in the question, "Are children able to avoid conflicts at school?"

Conflicts can occur for different reasons. In general, it doesn't have a lot of meaning. Especially, if we are talking about children. In fact, during school years people survive a difficult part of their life, part of growing up. Sometimes, this source of problems is disturbing teenage behavior, and this can cause some terrible consequences. To some extent, in conflicts children are looking for a way of expression. In their age it's very important because they need to show themselves and try to impress everyone. So, let's return to our question.

I think, that everyone has an opportunity to avoid conflicts. Often, it just depends on a the person and on his or her desire to be in it. Thus, l wish the students to be calm and restrained. And then, their school life will improve.

Why football is so popular?

Many people like football because this sport is very developed. There is an expression, “If you are not good at sports, you may go to football”. German team plays well. Football ligue has tv programs. Every foreign player likes his job, what a pity, Russian players don’t. Most popular player is Cristiano Ronaldo, he plays for Real Madrid, national team of Portugal, he is the most expensive player in 2013. - 80 million pounds was paid by Manchester United to Real Madrid. Some football players have a big salary. I think they have very big salaries because football is popular. Americans call football soccer. And they have their game football, too. American football is a bit different from european football. There are eleven players in a team. Today this game is played in more than 140 countries. It is especially popular in some European and Latin American countries. Football is also played in the Olympics. Every year Europe houses FIFA Cup, and every four years – the World Cup. My favourite footballers are Ronaldo and Messy. We always watch important football matches on TV. At weekends sometimes we go to our stadium to watch the games of local teams.
