Ma Ville
  • Jhabite à Cobham au sud-est dAngleterre. Ma
    ville est jolie mais petite. Il y a des
    supermarchés, des églises, et des cafés où on
    peut prendre un café au lait avec les amis. On a
    aussi des magasins qui vendent les vêtements à la
    mode mais malheureusement, Il ny a pas de
    cinéma, alors si on veut voir un film on doit
    aller à Guildford. Aussi Il y a un vieux château
    dans le parc derrière Marks and Spencers. Cest
    super car on peut jouer au foot dans le parc. La
    semaine prochaine je vais faire les magasins avec
    mes parents car cest lanniversaire de ma sœur.
    Cest barbant!
