Activity 1
Once you have read these phrases you will be ready to leave the airport and head to your hotel. Take a moment and imagine how you might feel if you were standing in the airport in a foreign country and you had to figure out how to communicate with people in a brand new language. Would you be scared? Would you feel confident? Write a short poem that describes how you might be feeling (i.e. excited, happy, scared, nervous, etc).

My Poem: hope you like it:)

The plane is going to take off,  ready to fly
I can feel the excitement running down my spine
I was really nervous, my stomach was filled with butterfly
I thought to myself  ‘ don’t worry I’ll be just fine
I closed my eyes, breathed in and out
The plane was in the air
I was so scared, this was not going to workout

    1. Hi Von,

      I completely agree with Daniel. This is really original and very well written. I feel as though I understand exactly how you are feeling about your big trip overseas. You've captured the feelings o nervousness and trepidation so well.

      Awesome.

      Rachel :)
