DO YOU USE THE INTERNET?
I am doing a school project about sharks.
I have found out lots of interesting facts
about them. Did you know that they can smell
a small drop of blood in water at a distance

I am looking for a job and I've got an interview
next week. So this morning I did some preparation.
I searched some websites to find out about

I often go away on business and in the evenings
to relax I use an instant message service

I log on to the Internet almost every day
