hard time

One of the hardest things I have done was to get my driving license. I was learning a lot and when I felt ready I went to do the test theory but failed. That was the first failure before a lot failures. I was very disappointed and sad I felt that the money was thrown away even more I was so tired of learning again for the theory test. After a couple of weeks, I started to learn again after I felt much better. After learning for 5 days I went to the theory exam and I had it good and I passed after 2-3 times. It was a big relief for me and I was so happy that after many failures I succeeded. The joy is bigger after you fail a couple a times and then in the end you pass the test and succeed the feeling is much better and there is a relief. Then I started the driving lessons and the first lesson between 1-5 was the hardest of the lessons. I thought I would never know how to drive and I would never get a license. But, as the lessons passed in the 5-10 lessons I started to understand driving.

I actually started driving well. I started to know to use the clutch and when the brakes. In the final test drive I got myself ready. I was driving my best. I drove very well and the tester passed me in the first test. This was a big achievement for me because it is hard to pass the first test. There are many people that don’t pass the first test. I learned from this hard achievement that I should never give up no matter what and how hard things are. I should keep trying even if I fail 2 or 3 times. It doesn't matter. So, don’t give up because in sooner or later you will succeed.

Listening is important to understanding things. When someone talks to us we listen to understand what he says. Listening is importing when a teacher talks. Listening is a must to succeed in exams. It is for recall what we learn and then to know it well. In addition, listening to music to understand the meaning of words is not just to listen. It's not enough. We need to understand and realize the words. When we turn on the radio we need to listen to understand what they saying because unlike television we don’t have a picture to look at, so we should focus on listening. There's a big difference between television and radio because on television we have pictures and we do not just listen; we also watch. On listening tests, we should be very focused in order to understand and succeed. Our hearing sense needs to be wide and we need to stay focus on listening.

  • Title of Project: Teenage Drinking
  • Research Question: Why do teens start drinking alcohol?
  • Teacher's Name: Nellie Deutsch
  • School Name: Ort Gutman
  • Your Name: David Taga
  • Date: April 4, 2008


  • Introduce the topic and research question or questions

the research is about teens that drinking alcohol. recently there are a phenomenon of drinking alchol between teenagers at the age:15-18 they drinking to feel comfortable among people and specially among girls,they drink before parties and every week on friday night this is how they spend they time. this bad habit are very harmful drinking in this early age are dangerous alcohol will harm they liver.sometimes alcohol drinking can be by influence of friends in there are peer pressure this is one of the reasons why most of the teens are drinking.

  • Purpose of the project: Reasons for choosing this topic

One of the reasons I choose this topic is because I been in kind of situations like this and I saw teenagers in situations like this. so I know how it is and I know the feeling of peer pressure in addition this topic is very important and intersting and everybody should know this things.

  • The steps you took in working on the project

The steps that I took was reading articls about teens and alcohol, and I looked for information from the internet even more then that I took exampls from my personal life from what I see on every week.


Today a lot of teens are drinking alcohol in any mood, no matter what whether they happy or sad or they just feeling bored.sometimes drinking alcohol when you are sad and depressed is very bad and dangerous its can lead to terrible situations like suicide.Teens are drinking in party or in a familly event. And sometimes they can buy at the neighborhood store that open all the night and there the seller sells bottles of alcohol to teens without to ask how old are they.They dont care about the teenage age,they dont ask for i.d to check, soo its very easy to get alcohol.

Alcohol hurts the brain cells and the liver and can have cancer ther's a lot of risk by drinking alchol constantly. In the main cause to alchol drinking in teens is the peer pressure that you have no choice and you have to drink and than after you drink you become popular.Teens want to be with people their own age with their peers.During adolescence,teens spend more time with their peers and without parental supervision. The influence of peers whether positive or negative is of critical importance in teen's life. Whether you like it or not, the opinions of the peers on teenage often carry more weight than his parents.the society have influence on the teenage is doing what everybody do to become like everybody else and become popular.

Teenagers who use alcohol are unfortunely sometimes using drugs, this kind of effect it's bad to are soceity. Teenagers who using drugs destroy there future and there life. For that situation could be alot of bad consequence on those families and even on the cuntry. Alcohol drinks are cheap in every liqur store and teenagers who dont have some money can buy this kind of alcoholy drink. Alcohol and drugs destroying families.


  • What solutions or conclusions have you come to.

My conclusion is that the main cause to teenage drink is less confident and peer pressure. the friends have a big influnece on teenage and they will listen to them because they friends. and there are a lot teenages that drink till they collapse and they dont remember what happend to them. its very harmful to the brain and even more than that to the liver what causes many diseases.

  • Summary of your work on the topic

At this project we see that usin alcohol in early age will lead them from normal teenage to alcoholy teens that could effect at the worst way on us community, on the families, the friends and on the country. By drinking alcohol the future of the teen could be destroyed, and could be alot of health problems in the liver.


  • The process of working on the project

I get information from articls,from my own life from what I see,and took info from internt.

    • What worked and what didn't work for you.
