Hello. My school is close to my house. I like sports, playing and watching, although my school has a bad sound system so it's difficult to hear what's going on. My class is large, and I have good friends.
Hello, I'm Luis. I like most lessons at school but my favorite subject is science. Playing the guitar is fun too because I love music. I hope I can keep on studying science and one day become a great scientist!
