What is happiness?

16 05 2011

Students of the Proficiency English class write their thoughts…

Happiness is:

  • going to school afraid because you haven’t studied, and then finding out that the teacher is absent!
  • the first day spent at the sea after a long, cold winter;
  • obtaining what you’ve always desired;
  • walking in the rain listening to “La vie en rose”;
  • cooking a big chocolate cake for your best friend who doesn’t eat chocolate;
  • spending time with people who make you happy;
  • a rainbow after a rainy day;
  • a sunset over the sea;
  • the joy of people laughing around you;
  • the love uniting different people.

Hi! We are four Italian high school students learning English in Lecce. Over the next year, you’ll find beautiful photos, cinema reviews, English songs, traditional recipes from all over the world, sports and fashion news, updates about school life and whatever we think could be interesting for other learners of English. We hope we’ll inspire you to use English more often, because this is a fun way to learn a new language and connect with other people.
