Do you ever wonder what it’s like under the ocean? There would be water above, underneath, and all around you, fish swimming by, and maybe you’d even see a shark!
In fact, you can have a deep sea adventure in a submarine. It’s a vessel that’s made to go underwater, so you can check out what’s really in the ocean. And you won’t get wet! Although hanging out in a small space might make some people feel pretty claustrophobic, they can see out through the portholes and the periscope.
Paul wants to take Amy to see a submarine, but she isn’t interested. Find out why in this English lesson.
If you love exercise, you probably love riding your bike. It’s the perfect way to travel and work out at the same time.
Riding in a city can be scary sometimes. You definitely have to pay attention to the rules of the road and, for safety, wear a helmet. When there are bike lanes, it’s easier to know where you should ride. You don’t want to fight for a spot with a car when you’re on a bike!
Some people ride bicycles just for fun. Other people use them for everyday transportation. Either way, bicycling saves money and reduces your carbon footprint.

Painting is a way we bring color into our lives. We paint houses and walls cheerful colors to make us smile. And we paint pictures that remind us of beautiful places or people to hang on our walls. Museums are full of paintings that were done by famous artists.
But does that mean everybody is artistic? Can everybody paint? Or do you need a special kind of talent to take a blank canvas and turn it into a masterpiece?
People use different colors for different feelings. Warm colors, like red and yellow, show love and passion. Cold colors, like blue and green, can either show sadness or quiet. Sometimes it’s therapeutic to paint your feelings. But if you don’t like painting, all the colors might be overwhelming.
Amy and Kelly both paint, but one of them doesn’t like painting at all. Learn about their experiences in this English lesson about art.
When it’s time to make a difficult choice, there are many ways to do it. You can close your eyes and pick something. You can ask a friend or parents for help. You can write down all of the reasons that one thing is better than another. Or you can stop and pay attention to what your body is telling you. That’s called following one’s heart.
When you follow your heart, you are paying attention to your strongest feelings about something. The choice you make might not make sense to the people who know you, and it might even surprise you, but you are doing what feels right. When you follow your heart, you feel peaceful and good about yourself.
It’s important to follow one’s heart when thinking about work, because we spend many hours every day at our jobs. If Ray follows his heart, what job will he have? Keep reading to find out in today’s English lesson.
