PAOLA   This summer, I’m not going to have a normal holiday. I’m going to do something different. I read about a cooking school in the mountains. I’m going to learn how to cook really well. It’s a two-week course. I think it’s going to be fun!

YAZ   Every summer my family normally gets a house near the beach and we spend the holiday there. But we aren’t going to do that this year. For a change, we’re going to go on a trip to Norway. There’s a boat that goes along the coast of Norway. They say it’s a very beautiful trip.

NIKITA   Most summers I go to another country – last year I went to Munich in Germany. This summer, I’m not going to travel abroad. I’m going to stay in this country. I’m going to stay on a farm and I’m going to work there. They aren’t going to pay me, but it’s not important for me. I want to do something different and be outside all day.
