My dear students, I want to apologize for my long absence. I guess that I had had the flu. For one month I did not feel well, and I frequented the hospital.
The last week, when I felt worse, I decided to meet one of my students who is a medical doctor now. She examined me thoroughly, and she gave me a strange piece of advice. She said that I had to have a walk every day; I had to make pauses every half an hour when I use my laptop. I could not believe. However, I tried.
What I would like to advise you is to have a walk at least once a day, for 20 minutes minimum. Just give it a try. You can have a walk after or before your English homework. I hope that my easy homework won’t take more than half an hour, and you could see something else, but not your computers.
Finally, let’s start with your exercises!
