I want to say ‘thank you' to everybody because all of you did something for me; thanks to the teachers (Renata and the other English teachers), thanks to every class for their attention, thanks to all the guys from the school and a special thanks goes to all the guys of the dormitory because they spent all their time with me and we did a lot of things together. Thanks to the headmaster and thanks to all the people of this city.

It was an amazing week and I'll never forget you.

I am sure I'll miss all of you.

Have a beautiful life and don't forget always to be happy! J

(I don't remember all your names but everybody did something for me and every person was very important during this week) J
