I have a friend who is too my english teacher thanks to skype we can speak and he can send me files and things like that for i can to practise english. We usually speak two times a week for one hour. It's funny time and you really enjoy with the class. This is a example of an english exercies i usually go online with my friend.
In this example i usually start doing a description of the history, after he read the history (listening), then i read the history (practise speaking), and after I fill blank spaces in the history (understanding).
A little old lady was driving her big, expensive car around a parking lot looking for a parking spot. She had been looking for a parking space for nearly half an hour when she finally found one. With her signal light flashing, and preparing to turn into the space, a young man in a sports car suddenly pulled in front of her and took the space. The little old lady was so upset that she yelled at him, "You stole my parking spot, you jerk!" With a smirk on his face he replied, “Face it lady, I’m way younger and way faster than you.” Then the lady got even more upset; she stepped on the gas and plowed right into the sports car. Then she put her car into reverse, backed up, and crashed into it again.
The young man rushed up to the woman. “What the hell are you doing?” he yelled.
The old woman handed him her insurance card and smiled. “Face it jerk, I’m way older
and way richer than you,” she said

A package holidays is one where the flight and accomodation are included in the price. These holidays are advertised in travel companies brochures . You can choose which country and which resort to visit, and decide whether you want full or half board, or perhaps just bed and breakfast. But if you prefer to organize your holiday yourself, you can simply rent a self-catering apartment and make your own travel arrangements. If you are travelling on a scheduled flight remember that all passengers should check-in very early at the airport. And whatever type of holiday you choose, it is a good idea to take out travel insurance in case anything goes wrong.
The past summer when i visit London i choose the self-catering apartment option but i was living with a family and it was a good option.

Some notes about differents kinds of clothes.
Personally i don't like the waistcoat, i think that is a kind of clothes only for special events, such as a wedding, or a formal party, specially if you have to wear a bow tie too. I prefer wear with jeans, trainers and some colourful t-shirt.
However i like the womans who wear a bit elegantly for example with a tight fitting cardigan and a skirt with a high-heeled shoes and they like wear bracelet or/and colourful necklace,
i found these womans very smarts.
In a rainy day i usually wear with waterproof clothes and if it's cold with a jumper too. I don't like the dungarees but i think that all boy when we was child we wore one dungaree.
I like the blazer only for special events like as the waistcoat, but if i would have to choose wear between they, i will choose a blazer i think that is tasteful wear with a trendy blazer.
When i have to do sports i wear with tracksuit bottoms but not a baggy tracksuit bottoms as the rappers.
