Welcome to the grammar school of B. Nemcova in Hradec Kralove
My name is P. Novak and I´ve studied at the grammar school of B. Nemcova for seven years. That´s why I was asked to give you some practical advice and tips which could be useful for you and make your life easier. Moreover, you´ll know what to expect before starting at the school.
Facilities for self-study
There are three libraries in the town – one is next to the school. In these libraries you can borrow books, video cassettes, DVDs or audio cassettes for two weeks. If you are looking for a quiet place to study, you can go to a reading room which is a part of the library. To use the internet, you can go to the school, where it is free of charge but often occupied by other students as well. So I recommend that you go to internet cafés which aren´t very expensive and where you won´t wait for ages.
Your classes are going to start at 8 o´clock and finish at 14 o´clock, except for one day when you´ll finish at 16 o´clock because of chemical or biological seminars. You´ll know the precise timetable at the beginning of September. You should attend school regularly and beware of being late to morning classes. If not, you´ll risk serious problems with teachers and then with our schoolmaster. So I think it´ s better to avoid it.
You´ll certainly find a lot of opportunities to get away from it all and let your hair down.
Our school organizes amazing sportive and social activities for our students that may interest you. You can spend your free time doing sports (such as basketball, volleyball, gymnastics and athletics), enlist in an art group or involve yourself in the school newspaper . From time to time students visit an art or cultural exhibition, a museum, a theatre or film festival with our school.
If you have any problems at school you can contact the study department, which is open from Monday to Friday 8.00-15.00. So don´t worry, it´s gonna be O.K.
Petr- I think you did a great job on this! I've corrected only a few things that didn't sound quite right to me. My corrections are in red.
