My first day at the new school

My name’s Ben and I come from Poland. I came to live in England two years ago. I go to a really cool secondary school and my favourite subjects are geography and art. When I arrived here, I couldn’t speak much English. My first day at school was awful!

I remember that I got up early in the morning, put on my new school uniform and went to school by bus. I arrived early and went straight to the secretary’s office. She gave me a timetable and a map of the school. She wrote «E5» on a piece of paper and pointed to it on the map. Then she opened the door and said, «Your classroom is right there, Ben.» I heard the word «right» and left the office. I turned right and started walking. I found the canteen and the school hall, but I couldn’t find classroom E5.

An hour later I was tired and sad. A boy came up to me and asked, «Are you OK?» I wrote «E5» on a piece of paper. «It’s in front of you,» he said pointing at the door. I was very pleased but when I went into the classroom, only the teacher was there. He looked at his watch and pointed to PE on my timetable. I was late — again!

Meg | Chen

Meg: Did you see the picture of that school on the river? It looks cool!
Chen: No, but I went to a very strange school.
Meg: Did you? Where was your school?
Chen: When I was a small boy, eight years ago, I lived in a village in China and I walked a long way to school. But my school was in a cave inside a mountain!
Meg: Wow! Really?
Chen: Yes. It was very hot outside so the school was a good idea!
Meg: Did you have classrooms?
Chen: Yes, and we had eight teachers.
Meg: Did you play outside?
Chen: No, there was a playground inside the cave. It was very strange because we didn’t have a roof! We didn’t play a lot of sports, but we played football on Mondays.
Meg: Were you happy there?
Chen: Yes, it was great. The classes were quite big so I knew lots of other children. But the best thing was we didn’t have classes in winter!
Meg: What subject did you like best?
Chen: Well, I couldn’t do art or science very well, but I enjoyed Maths. My friends all liked geography because we had a very funny teacher.
Meg: Sounds good fun …
