These languages can be divided into groups of which they come from, for example the Indo- Chinese group, the Semitic group, the Malayo- Polynesian group or the Indo- European group which was spoken about 5000 years ago in Europe.

Presentation659 Words / ~1 page BORG Dreierschützengasse Graz · Englisch Kernstoff: food Food It is important for your health what you eat, where you eat and why you eat. As a teenager you have to eat a variety of foods that give you the nutrients your growing body needs. It is not wrong if you eat burgers and pizza but you have to eat smaller amounts and balance them with other foods.

Even if you are watching TV you should take a small amount of food with you, not the whole bag.
