My school is very far from the place where I live so I have to use public transport to get there. But I'm glad I'm a day student and come home every day. A friend of mine is a boarder and she is often homesick.
1 a "boarder" is a student who...
a) lives at school
b) suffers at school
2 "to be homesick" means:
a) to want to go out
b) to miss one's home
In our school if you are particularly bright, you are offered a scholarship.
1 "bright" means:
2 "scholarship" means:
a) money an organisation gives you so that you can study at a school
b) money you earn
In my school class sizes are very large, which results in some students being left behind or almost ignored. Every student would get more attention if classes were smaller.
"to be left behind" means:
a) to be as good as all the others
b) to be slower than others
Because my school doesn't have a uniform, students do not really feel they have a school identity and so they simply don't care. I'm sure a compulsory uniform would help us develop more pride in our school.
If something is "compulsory",
a) you can choose whether to do it or not.
b) you must do it.
