The change which the pandemic has brought has made me sad because we don't know how long it will last. At the beginning, the online classes were difficult for me. I prefered face-to-face lessons as they are more dynamic and they include lots of different ways of learning. I wanted to see my friends again too. But as time has gone on I've adapted to the online classes, because I want to learn and to continue studying. Thank you very much for being concerned about me and how I am feeling, and for all your support.
Hello. Thank you for your support. I and my family are fine but the lock-down has been diificult. We are closed in and I can't see my friends, but it's been nice spending more time with my family. We have had to adjust to having less money and that has changed our way of life. I think that in the future we will all have to learn to follow the rules to prevent the spread of the virus, so our lives can improve and we can return to normality.
