First of all, I would like to move Denmark to work and there are many reasons that want to come and work, because Denmark is the country famous for Mermaid statue, with European antique style, have the traditional cake flavors Royals Denmark, social welfare regimes good, etc...
The second, I'm not suppose a cat is not loyal and not friendly but I'm still respect their opinion. I really like pets, dogs and cats to me they're very lovely. when I adopt them, give food them every day, sometime I cuddly, cuddle and stroke them anymore as day as them become than closer to me. The dogs is pet useful to us, they could be keep your house form stranger or thief.. and they will be save you in this urgent, dangerous case. and the cats ???
not only eating and sleeping, they always stalk, arrest rats, cockroach,.. That is animals or insects make harm for our environment around...

The third, I want to talk about a cat that I have been feed. I remember in a time on my way home with my aunt I saw a little cat an pavement, it look hungry, cannot step. I stopped and said to her: we were brought it up. " Ok" she said. because my home is not to enough huge, I would like to get a cat, just cat...

I'm  always dreaming about travel the word ...if my job allow me to move around the world, i would prefer to go span or somewhere have more different architecture like Roma  or Italy .i agree that people always think that  the dogs are loyal and friendly even i don't have any pet dog ,but i have a pet tortoise which  i bought  its  just a few months ago.before i never have any pet animal i 'd never think about responsibility ,i really respect that people who have pet animal and take care their pet animal like their own children ...if i get another pet ,i like parrot more ,because parrot is one of most different animal its can talk with you ..hehe 

hi teachers l hope that you are well .l don't understand this sentence" build a special fence that kind of curled in on itself"and olso "get fedded"get stroked" get cuddled"
please help me

Hi samiasamou,

The sentence describes the shape of the fence - curling in on itself means that it is going round as if in a circle, but does not close the circle.  The other phrases are passive forms.  We sometimes use 'get' in place of 'be' in passive verb forms, so these are the equivalent of 'be fed' (the past participle is 'fed', not 'fedded'), 'be stroked' and 'be cuddled'.  If you don't know these verbs then you can use the Cambridge Dictionaries Online window on the right to look them up, and you'll see a definition, some examples and some grammar information.

I hope that clarifies it for you.

Best wishes,

I'd like to tell the story about my cuddly black cat – Matvey. I found him on the street, near the grocery store, when he was a little kitten. At that time he was so ill that if I hadn't rescued him he would probably have died soon. It is often believed that black cats bring you unhappiness, while others say that black cats are great doctors and able to cure any disease. As for me, I didn't experienced their medicine affect, but know for sure that black cats affect our lives absolutely positively!

I would prefer to live in Italy,Greece or any of the Pacific Islands,but I wouldn t mind to live and work in every country of the world.I think people are divided in cats and dogs,because their personalities.If you are like a cat you ll understand much better the behaviour of this animal.It s the same with the dog.I don t want more pets,because I ve got two cats older than Masha and Misha and I missed one more cat last month(she died because she was eighteen years old!)-I ve always wanted to get a parrot,but maybe in the future.

I like travelling very much, but I think I can never leave my homeland for a long time. I would like to go to Italy, Spain and especially the countries of the Middle East, and learn about different cultures

hi guys any one can tell me that what is wrong with site i can not answer on listening task ..
