My achievements and difficulties

I did not have any difficulties this year either. Since I have been studying in this school for a long time, I am familiar with the programs, I participate without any difficulties. My success is that I now know English a little better. My achievements were many this year. From the beginning of the year I became interested in physics, I managed to study well, I was able to have a high grade. This year I started learning English with enthusiasm.

Trees help to cool the local climate by absorbing heat. Without them, temperatures would soon begin to rise (Credit: Getty Images)

In botany, a tree is a perennial plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting branches and leaves in most species. Trees usually reproduce using seeds. Flowers and fruit may be present, but some trees, such as conifers, instead have pollen cones and seed cones. Palms, bananas, and bamboos also produce seeds, but tree ferns produce spores instead. Trees play a significant role in reducing erosion and moderating the climate. Trees provide shade and shelter, timber for construction, fuel for cooking and heating, and fruit for food as well as having many other uses.

I don’t really like my town. Every summer, too many tourists come here, so there are too many cars in the streets, and that means there’s enough noise.

And most of the clothes shops are for old people- there aren’t enough shops for young people like me!
