My name is Amélie. I’m 15 years old. I have long brown hair and I'm approximately 165cm tall. I have one brother who is 11 years old; his name is Adrien.
I live in Saint Georges sur Loire. I am calm, I like to smile, and I also have a strong character. I have been dancing for 8 years. Later on, I would like to be a nurse because I like children. At school, I like Spanish and History. Bye ♥

Hello!!! Happy New Year!!!
My village is called Saint Georges sur Loire. It’s a calm little village. It's a pretty little town. It is a village in the Maine-et-Loire region in France. It is 20 minutes from Angers by car. There is a castle in the village. Near my village, there is a river called the Loire river.
I received many presents for Christmas and got lots of money.
Bye!!! Amélie ♥

Last weekend, I went into town with friends. I also went to the ice rink on Saturday and to my grandparent's place on Sunday. The next day, I had to get up for school. Then, all this week I worked and I saw some friends. Bye. Amélie ♥

I am very happy to work with you, and I like working on the truth about global warming.
I've tried to find the blog that you created, but I have not succeeded.
Could you send me the link for it so that I can see the site?

The film ‘Bowling for Columbine’ is very interesting.
Before I watched this film, I believed that violence in USA was not so serious. This film portrays violence in USA by showing examples of it such as the shooting that occurred at the High School in Littleton in April, 1999. 12 students were killed in the incident. In USA approximately 11,000 people are killed per year due to the 250 million guns that are available and accessible to American citizens. Guns should be banned to protect the population.

Hello! On Monday I went to visit the ‘Total Group’ in the ‘Defense' area of Paris with the other girls in my year group. We left at 8:30am and returned at 8:00pm. We had to attend a conference on energy; and meet and speak with women about engineering. In Angers, the weather is beautiful this week, but it has only been like this for one week before the holidays. Bye ♥ ♥

Désolé! Désolé! Je n'ai pas su que vous où postant toujours à cette page! Je vérifiais seulement le blogue de groupe. Je me sens mal maintenant.
C'est si frais(cool) de votre ville. Je regrette que notre ville ne soit pas qu'agréable. La propre ville a une population de 2,480 quand ils le bavoir le recensement 2000 (Okanogan, Washington wiki). Aux États-Unis nous avons Préscolaire qui peut être commencé à n'importe quel âge. Alors le jardin d'enfants, la première année vous va à l'école. Vous le commencez quand vous avez 5 ans. Les catégories k-5 sont appelées l'École primaire. Le Collège est minutieux 6ème à 8ème. Le lycée est la 9ème catégorie à la 12ème catégorie. Dans notre lycée il y a 280 étudiants. Dans le lycée, notre terminale, il n'y a pas le grand test que nous devons prendre pour obtenir un diplôme. C'est parce que nous, les étudiants, prenons un test dans la 10ème catégorie. Ce test est sur la Lecture, l'Écriture, des Maths et la Science.
Dans notre ville il y a peu de transports en commun. Je me déplace par mon vélo. Je peux conduire mais je n'aime pas à.
