Cristiano Ronaldo is a very famous footballer who plays for Real Madrid
in Spain. He is from Madeira in Portugal, and he is 25 years old. He scores
many goals every year and is the favourite player of many fans. Sometimes
he is the captain of Portugals national team.
Ronaldo has to practise every day with his team-mates, so he doesnt have
a lot of free time. But when he does have free time, he likes going for
long walks in the countryside and listening to music. His favourite
singer is Shakira. He also likes spending time with his family.
He has got two sisters and a brother. With his sisters, Katia
and Telma, he owns two clothes shops in Portugal.
A lot of people think that Ronaldo is the best football
player in the world. He is still very young, so he can
play for many more years and score many more goals.

The Kiwi New Zealands Bird


The kiwi is the national bird of New Zealand. It is
about the size of a chicken and is usually brown
or grey. It has got a long beak and a small round
body. The kiwi has got very small wings, so it
cant fly.
The kiwi has got many special abilities. It can
smell very well. It comes out at night and uses its
sense of smell to hunt for insects. Also, the kiwi
has got very strong legs. It can run very fast and
fight enemies with its sharp claws.
The kiwi is a very important bird to New
Zealanders. In New Zealand you can see pictures of
the kiwi on the countrys stamps and on the flags
of some cities and sports clubs. But today there are
not many kiwis left. Because of this, New
Zealanders are trying to protect this unique bird.
