I have ask xxx mean kisses? beacues that hear porn
and xoxo?

Hi Barrita,

Yes, 'xxx' means both of those things. For kisses, it doesn't need to be three. For example, 'x' or 'xx' also mean kisses.

'xoxo' means something like 'hugs and kisses'. It's an expression of affection.

I hope that helps!

It depends. Sometimes I like staying in the city. And sometimes I want to go to a more relaxing place. I need delicious food and amazing views to get relaxed. I'm jealous sometimes, but then I just find something suitable for me.
I'm sure when we go on a holiday with children, they will build sandcastles and eat a lot of ice creams.

For me, I do not have any particular favourite place for a holiday, because there are so many places in the world that I have never been to! Especially after reading everyone’s sharing, I think the world is so big, I hope I can travel around the world and see more differences!

Discussion: where is your favorite place for a holiday? For me personally. I love a place with a peaceful atmosphere like go camping, go fishing, especially my home. Could I consider home is a place for a holiday? Because a holiday is an occasion to relax or reduce stress after such a long time of working or studying. I guarantee all people feel comfortable at home and easy to do anything from making some delicious donuts to inviting close friends or relatives to come over and have a party together.

I went to Spain two years ago for a holiday. We celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday. We stayed in a luxury hotel by the beach, it was a great fun. I would say Spain is my favourite county to go on holiday.

My favourite place is Pyin Oo Lwin Township, Mandalay Region, Myanmar. This town has many visiting places and so many flowerbeds. One of the most places I like is flowerbeds. They are so beautiful and fun. Another point I love this town is that it has cool weather. I love this weather.

Hello. Reading Text section is missing.

Hello Elmar H.,

Are you still not able to see the Reading text? I can see it now. It could be that your browser needs updating. I'd suggest you try that or, if possible, trying to see the page in another browser or on another device.

If none of that works, you can at least read the text in the Worksheet.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

All the best,

My favourite places for a holiday are mountains. I adore trekking and hiking. It's the best way of relaxing and forgetting about everyday problems for me. It's obvious this way of resting is a bit tiresome, but the amazing views at the top let me forget about fatigue.
Absolutely! I agree 100%! It is like you have read my mind! We have beautiful mountains and glaciers in Argentina. Every time I can take some personal time off at work I get my backpack on and travel to Patagonia. In my opinion, San Carlos de Bariloche is one of the most amazing places in the world.

My favourite place for a holiday is a beach called Shirahama in Wakayama Prefecture.It's a place I've been traveling to since I was little.It's so familiar to me that I could say it's my second home.Shirahama has the ocean and there is a great variety of seafood.We always eat seafood for dinner every night.If you stay in Shirahama for a long time, you can eat seafood until you get tired of it.LOL! In addition, the sea in Shirahama is very clear and clean seawater and you can see the fishes clearly when you swim in the sea.I often dive with my father and I love to see the fish up close.After enjoying the ocean, I play volleyball with my family at the hotel's pool.It's hard to move as we play volleyball in the water.It's more tiring than playing volleyball on land.After playing in the pool, I always go to the hotel's hot spring.It's the perfect time to relax in the hot spring after a hard day's work. However, I could not go to the Shirahama beach every year, but I could not go this summer.Because I still had to go to school.The reopening of school was delayed due to the corona, so my summer vacation was cut short.It's really sad.This summer I had to refrain from being alone and lonely this summer. So I decided to go to Shirahama next year, no matter what, for sure.

When I was single, I like to go hiking on holiday. I climbed most of the mountains in my country. I feel very relaxing standing on the top of the mountain and breathing the fresh air here. But when I was married and had a baby, my family often went to the beach. Because our daughter loves swimming, building castle sand, and walking along the beach. I hope my family will have a hiking trip when my daughter is older.

I think the places where we spend in our holiday are very important for us. Because if we choose the places where don’t suit us, we cannot have fun and relax. I have 2 favorite places where I spend in my holiday. These 2 places are completely different types. First, I like to go to Starbucks on my holiday. I often visit Starbucks near my house to study and relax. Because, I can more focus on than study at home if I go there. Also, I love the atmosphere of Starbucks. Of cause, I like Starbucks beverages. I always try new drinks. It’s fun that I feel to try new drinks is like a kind of adventure. This is also another reason why I choose Starbucks. So, to spend good holiday, I often go to Starbucks. Next, when I want to stay at home on my holiday, I always spend on the balcony. In my balcony, there is a hammock. I’m in love with the time that to listen to music and take a nap and study English words while riding a hammock. Someone say that spending a holiday at home alone is a waste. However, I don’t think so. Because, I believe it’s also important for us to relax alone. So, I really like to spend alone on the balcony. To relax, the places where we spend in a holiday are really important. I explained 2 places. And I would like to know new places to spend in a holiday and have more wonderful time. I’m looking forward to spending next my holiday!
