Marhaba, (Hi, in arabic). My name is Tala. I am 10 years old. I am in Grade 5A. The school I am in is called Qatar Academy. I think this is the best school I've ever been to. I am having so much fun with all my friends. I am from Lebenon, but this is my 11th year living in Qatar. I love ice- cream and Tabouleh, (a traditional lebenese food). I like to cook and play my favorite games and chat with my friends on the computer. I LOVE gymnastics and swimming. I don't like spicy food. I also don't like: running, football, but I like basketball, baseball, golf and hockey. I can't wait to work with other schools around the world! I worked with a school in Britain and the topic was about poetry, so I have a little experiance. It's going to be so fun!!! :)



My First Draft:

My country Qatar!! The aliens shouldn't destroy our country because they wouldn't get anything, only destroy lives of lots and lots of people. My question is: Why do they want to destroy our country? There are many many things we could do in this beautiful country. This country has very special things that other countrys DON'T have, so I would not like to see it go for nothing so I can tell you a few.

Qatar has excellent education like Sheikha Moza's school called Qatar Foundation with a school inside it called Qatar Academy. This school has the best learning and the best teachers in Qatar. It is an enormous school. There is a place on the other side of the school called: the Recreation Center. The Recreation Center has places to do after-school activities like: ballet, swimming and even fitness for women. On the upper floor of the indoor swimming pool, there is a gym for working out. There is even a coffee shop to hang out and to eat and drink with your friends. There is also lots of other univercities from around the world going to be built in Qatar Foundation. Normally, there are lots of events held ther in Qatar Foundation, for example, singers coming, pictures with Her Highness Sheikha Moza, and I can go on forever.

Qatar is a very modern country with new models and buildings. If you would like to take a nice stroll you would prefare to go to the corniche. If you live infront of the corniche, you could get a great view of it. You can have wonderful picnics near the sea or in the sunshine and have fun! In the winter it has a breeze and there is no snow like some other countries, so you wouldn't get cold. It isn't cloudy, but mostly sunny.

There is a big torch called the Khalifa Stadium, it is called the Torch because it was lit by fire when the 15th Asian Games were held. The event actually happened in a big indoor arena called Aspire. Aspire is the largest indoor sports center in the world! It has sports like: football, basketball, gymnastics, netball, baseball, indoor athletics, swimming, and sports like that. Qatar has a lot of sports facilities not just Aspire.

So Your Highness King Alien, you should not destroy our country, because as I said there are a lot of wonderful and important places and sights in Qatar. Once again, Your Highness, you will not gain or lose anything, but you will let millions and billions of people lose their only lives of innocent people. I am pleasing you and also other people please you: Don't destroy our country!
