Good Morning Class!
This morning we started a new theme: Health. We watched this video by Dr. Mike Evans who encourages everyone to start becoming more active. You can start gradually by walking for 5 or 10 minutes a day and then increase to 15, 20 , and then 30 minutes a day. Dr. Evans says that increasing your activity decreases your health risks. Watch the video!

Never give up
Fifteen years ago, I was facing some
difficulties in my studies.
When I got married I made the decision to complete my studies, because I had so much free time. When I started, every thing was easy, but when I gave birth to my oldest son, I started to face some difficulties. One of the problems I faced was going to the university for a long time and when I get back I was busy with my studies and house work. When I saw the sitiuation like that, I made the decision to give up to complete my studies, then I felt despair.
Finally my husband advised me to not give up and then my husband put his hand in my hand and told me that he will help me. He encouraged me, then I was able to complete my studies and I got university honors.
I am very happy because now we can do it together !!
Never give up

A long time ago, when my youngest son was fourteen years old, he had a serious accident. What happened was that he fell off of the third floor at his school. Luckily his teacher found him right away and called the emergency. When this happened, he could not move his legs because they were broken. At the hospital he was treated at, they said that he would never be able to walk again, I was very scared and did not want to give up. So we went to a different hospital and was fortunately able to get him treated properly so that he can walk again. Since I did not give up on my son walking again, I was able to go to the other hospital to get him treated. I was so relieved.
For international Womans Day we watched this film and discussed gender stereotypes. We talked about how they all have some truth to them, but are not true for all people all the time. We also noticed that some things are not as true as they were in the past. Things are changing!
Hi everyone. I am Urfa.When i was 14 years old, I was living in Daska (Pakistan) with my family.In 1983 my father was getting sick because of a kidney Problem.In September was few days he was addmited in the hospital for a few days then he passed away.
After his death, the situation of my house became difficult. My older brother was also sick and everyone was saying that Its hard time for us. We couldn't settle down but all of a sudden I thought that I will not give up and i will manage the things and will settle my family so I started tutoring at home and took teaching and sawing courses.
I started a job in a private school as a subject and Art teacher.It was very hard time for me to continuing my study because morning time I was teaching in a school and evening time tutoring at home so I have no time for study.My two younger brothers studied and after that they did some courses and then after long struggle we were settled and I was happy that in 1983 I didn't give up and took a stand for my family.

Hi everyone! One warm summer day I and my school friend went to the Ob river.
It's very big, deep and dangerous Siberian river. But I was only about fifteen years old and wasn't
afraid of anything.
The riverside was empty and we decided to go to swim. I swam to the deep water because it's easier
to swim and faster. When I saw the big floating ship , I started to swim to the shore, but the stream
of the river took me away from the shore. I fought over, spent all the power but I didn't give up and
didn't think that I could sink. I didn't remember how long I tried to get to the shore, but I crawled
out a shore. After that case I wasn't afraid to swim.
NEVER GIVE UP !!!!
When I arrived here the first month was great , but during the next months I began to realize that I felt lonely , no friends , no brothers , no sisters , and the language was so difficult to speak, I felt so blue. I Told my cousin that I don't want to stay here anymore, he told me that "I know it's very difficult for you to stay like this , no friends , no school , but don't worry everything comes slowly , staying here is building a good future for your life, you will start English class and everything will be okay don't give up, and thinks about your future my dear". After that I change my mind I can't give up because everything my cousin told me was truth, I start English class ,I enjoy it that make me fell the happiest girl of the word because I am learning English now and I like it , now I have new friends in my English class and also in Hamilton and Toronto.
I'm very glad to live here,I like this country. Don't event say I can in life just try do it event it's difficult you will be at the end. Never give up.

When I keep a dictionary at hand to community visit a staff and find the English school address. I went to school learn English.
When I learned English and I didn't give up taught my daughter basic knowledge of her first language. Now, I can speak simple English and my daughter's first language is very good.
When I moved to Canada, I had to give up my job, I gave up my goog benefits of my hometown. In Canada, at school I'm a student, at home I'm a home maker.
If I can't come to Canada, I gave up learn English, I will give up new life in Canada.
If I am going to give up teaching my daughter our first language, she won't speak very well.
NEVER GIVE UP
In 1990, I lived with my family in Alexandria. When I made some cookies the fire caught in the fireplace oven. I was going to give up this situation and run away. After one second, I decided not to give up. Directly I brought the fire extinguisher and extinguished the fire. All my whole body became trembling.

On February 11, 1965, Canada officially introduced its new national flag. It was a long decision-making process that included the Prime Minister, Lester B. Pearson, receiving mailed submissions for flag designs from citizens across the country. Canada's current flag design was chosen for its simplicity and for the fact that the maple tree does indeed grow, in many varieties, across Canada. The right-hand red bar represents the East coast and the left-hand red bar represents the west coast with the maple leaf joining each coast and the middle of Canada together as one country.
