      They’re synonyms and interchangeable.
      Supper is mostly used by the British. Long ago, they used the word DINNER which serves at noons and considered as a heavy meal; supper is more likely to be a snack. Nowadays, they’re used as the same.

    Five years (ago), my parents, my older sister and I went to a place with many mountains. We decided to climb one of the largest of these mountains. My dad said “that we (able) to climb this mountain”. I told my dad, “would you (allow) me to try climbing”, but he did not (agree), he told me that I was vulnerable to danger if I climbed the mountain because I was still young, I got angry but that didn’t (appeared) my (anger) for them. My mom noticed that I was not feeling well, so she said to my dad, “Let her try.” My dad was (allowed) me climbing, I was (afraid) because I was the first time I climbed a mountain, but I told myself “you are (able) to do it”, I (always) liked to do anything new, we were climbing like a game, we were two teams, my dad and I were one team (against) my sister and mom, we started climbing, The climb was very tired, when we got to the top of the mountain, we were feeling tired and hungry, and (also) I was feeling proud that I did it, we had some food in the bag, we ate and rested, there was cold air, I (asked) my dad “why when we were on the ground there was no (air) and now There is (air)”, he (answered) me, “now there is air because we have risen from the ground”. I was not convinced of the (answer), but I did not (ask) another question. Then we decided to go down from the mountain. We went down to earth and I thanked my dad and mom for this fun adventure.

          Hey, Ghida
          No, it isn’t, because the plural of person is people.

          We use person in the singular to refer to any human being:

          Joel is such a nice person.

          She’s a person I have a lot of respect for.

          Persons (plural) is a very formal word. We only use it in rather legalistic contexts.
          Any person or persons found in possession of illegal substances will be prosecuted.

          To refer to groups of human beings or humans in general, we use people:

          I saw three people standing on the corner.

          Not: I saw three persons …

          Jim and Wendy are such nice people.

          People are generally very selfish.

          Three people were interviewed for the job, but only one person had the right qualifications and experience.

          I hope it’s clear to you now.

    One winter day, my brothers and I were sitting in the living room talking( about) our childhood days.
    Suddenly the electricity was cut off and it was raining, I lit the lantern and placed it on (above), so that it did not fall or break, and the atmosphere was wonderful in the room.
    They told me: Are you (afraid)? I said no, I am (able) to control my fears.
    Then it was time to sleep, they( all) fell asleep deeply, but I stayed awake because I was scared, The morning bell rang and it was eight in the morning, I looked at the window and the ground was covered with snow, I woke up all my brothers to see the beauty of the snow, I went to my mother (allow) go out to play with snow, but the (answer) was not going to (agree), because the weather is cold and there is( air), It (appeared) that we and my brothers were (angry) at her response.
    She said, “I am your (age), I was not allowed to play with snow, and she said there were many laws in our house, but I am (against)( any) of them. But I told her (again) please allow us, and she said OK, but if you feel cold, you go home immediately, I told her well, we can’t really miss playing with snow, because we haven’t played with it( ago) last winter.
    My brothers and I went out and had a lot of fun playing with it, we and the neighbor’s children. After that, we got a lot cold, and I remembered what my mother told me, so I went home immediately, I changed my clothes, sat beside the fire, and drank a hot soup that made my chest warm.

    Shopping has become a joy for many people, especially since malls now offer restaurants and cafes inside them. All this made shopping fun, as all family members can go to the mall to buy their needs and eat, and there are games for children inside the mall, and large shopping centers provide all the needs family, in my perspective traditional shopping is better and more fun, but one of the negatives of traditional shopping it’s a overcrowding in malls, especially at weekends and events.
    But now, because the Corona virus pandemic, shopping has become online, and there are positives and negatives of shopping online. Firstly the positives: saving the shopper time and effort and providing comfort so that you can shop without feeling tired, and secondly, the negatives: you must pay a delivery fee, not all sites are honest and sometimes delivery is late.

    Winter is the coldest of the four seasons, it starting in December to March, so winter after spring, it’s one of the best seasons for me. I like rain, snow, thunder, lightning and everything in winter, the night is long and the day is short. We sleep for long hours at night.
    I like to play with snow in the winter. It is very cold but it also fun, every winter I make a nice snowman, we must wear warm clothes and gloves when we going outside, and I like family gathering around the fireplace. In winter I like to drink coffee instead of tea or any other drink. The winter is really astonishing season.

    I prefer education in schools because there is interaction between students and teachers, and we can participate with the teacher and ask thim to repeat or explain more if we don’t understand.
    But now because the Corona virus pandemic, they postponed going back to schools to September, and now we are studying on the platform and I don’t like to study on the platform because we encountering many dilemmas with it; because sometimes we don’t have internet and sometimes we cannot send homework, and students are more active in schools, so I hope to go back to studying in schools instead of studying on the platform; because at firstly I miss my friends and teachers, and secondly I don’t understand the lessons on the platform, I know online education for our own safety but we’ll follow safety measurements if we go back to the schools.

    Hello Mr. Nat!
    This’s my last paragraph.

    I prefer education in schools because there is interaction between students and teachers, and we can participate with the teacher and ask them to repeat or explain more if we don’t understand.
    But now; because the Corona virus pandemic, they postponed going back to schools to September, and now we are studying on the platform and I don’t like to study on the platform; because we encountering many dilemmas with it; because sometimes we don’t have internet and sometimes we cannot send homework, and students are more active in schools, so I hope to go back to studying in schools instead of studying on the platform; because at firstly I miss my friends and teachers, and secondly I don’t understand the lessons on the platform, I know online education for our own safety but we’ll follow safety measurements if we go back to the schools.

      Well done, Raghad!
      Fewer mistakes this time! That means you’re improving.
      Find here below some tips to make you a better writer:

      An Interaction / Because Of The Coronavirus /

      and now we are studying on the platform and I don’t like to study on the platform; = Avoid repetition.
      and now we are studying on the platform and I don’t like it <<< this is better. so I hope to go back to studying in schools instead of studying on the platform
      so I hope to go back to studying in schools instead <<<<< this is better. Firstly, / Secondly, = always add a comma

      The word BECAUSE was used massively.

      1. raghad12

        Thanks so much, Mr. Nat!
        You always encourage me.
        I really appreciate it.

        Yes, I know that I used BECAUSE frequently, but I couldn’t find any synonyms for it.

    The studentship is one of the most important stages in life, because we meet our friends, mix with others, and makes our own world. We also determine our future. School begins at the age of six years, and this year begins with an official date.

    As in all things of life, there is a beginning and end to everything, this year is divided into two classes, students take a vacation between them, and when the second class end the school year ends, and students take a long vacation to prepare themselves for the new school year. Parents should start at least one week before school starts to accustom children to falling asleep early and waking up early to the school routine.

    As for students who failed in the previous year, they can plan to study hard and pass this year with full marks.

      Well done, Raghad!
      You always keep me flabbergasted after reading your paragraphs!
      Keep it up, I’d love to read more.

      The studentship is one of the most important stages in life. Studentship = the state of being a student.
      Mixes with others = Mix with others- No S in Mix.
      Also determines = No S in determine.
      Divided into two classes = Not IN
      And when the second class ends = Add S to end.
      Falling asleep = Not sleep.

    *I read two days ago about stress and anxiety on exam days, there are many students suffering from this problem and not succeeding in the exam or not understanding the question or reading it, because this is caused by tension and anxiety! I am one of these students, I get very nervous and anxious before I go to the exam, or while I am studying for the exam, but I do not know what to do about this thing!
    I went to YouTube and searched for “How to deal with stress and anxiety for the exam.”
    And they say in the videos, “The phenomenon of tension is a very natural thing that happens to every student, and that there are two types of tension, first: negative tension, and second: positive tension.” But I didn’t understand any of the videos, and I didn’t get any idea of them, unless I wasted my time watching them! However, I could not eliminate it because I could not get any therapist, I still have tension and anxiety about the exams, and I cannot find any video or anyone to address my problem.
    I know that this tension and anxiety is a normal thing, but there must be a solution to that because sometimes it destroys your success, makes you hallucinate in failure, etc.
    I am now trying to eliminate it and I will keep trying until I succeed in it.

    There was a boy who’s always angry, so his father gave him a sack full of nails and said to him “my son, I want you to hit a nail into our garden fence. Every time you need to direct your anger against something or someone”, the son begins to follow his father’s advice. On the first day, he hit 38 nails, and inserting the nails into the fence was not easy, so he started trying to control himself when he got angry. The more days passed, he used to hit fewer nails, and within weeks he was able to not hit any nails a day (never to get angry), he controlled himself and was able to refrain from getting angry and hitting the nails. He came to his father and told him what he achieved. His father was happy with his efforts and told him: “Now my son, you have to take a nail out of the fence every day that you don’t get angry.” The son started taking out the nails an every day he didn’t get angry until there were no nails in the fence. He came to his father and told him what he achieved. His father took him to the fence and said, “my Son, you did well, but look at these holes in the fence. You take out the nails but the holes won’t go away.” Then he said, “When you say things in anger you leave traces like these holes in other people’s hearts. It doesn’t matter how many times you say “I’m sorry,” because the wound will remain.

    The wisdom of this story, “don’t say anything to anyone when you are angry. Because you will leave a trace in their hearts, even if you apologize.”

    Notice: I was knew this story in Arabic and I wrote it in English.

    1. Natlus

      Well done, Raghad.
      Yes, I know this story, but your translation was extraordinary!
      Keep it up.

      I want you to knock a nail into our garden fence = Change knock to HIT
      the son begin to follow his father’s advice = Add S o the verb BEGIN
      and within weeks he was able to not hit any nail = Add S to NAIL
      I was know this story in Arabic and I wrote it in English = I knew this story.

    My hobby is cooking and making sweets, but making sweets specifically, I feel pleased when I begin to make sweets and I feel extremely pleased if everyone likes what I made. I always see the thing I make is insufficient, so I make more and more. It has become my daily routine to make sweets and my mom emphasizes that it’s inhealthy to eat sweets daily. Every day I watch videos about making sweets in English to enhance my English.

    In conclusion, I’m so pleased to this my hobby and I hope to achieve my goal about this one day.

    At these moment, I’ve a different feeling. I’m feeling happy about tomorrow, tomorrow is Eid, but I’ll miss Ramadan, it went fast like a blink of an eye! Because of that I feel sad.
    The day of Eid is a busy day, due to the relatives coming from other places, and we sit, eat, talk, and we spent fun time together. Anyone that was in a bad relationship with another person can amend it on this day. I’m really enthusiastic about tomorrow.
    I ask Allah to accept our fasting, and obedience.
    I hope that every year we’re good.
    Have a happy Eid!
