Les vacances d’hiver (Topic: Winter)
“It snowed!” shouted Jean excitedly when he looked out of the window that morning. He had gone to the mountains with his friends Sophie, Charles and Félix for winter break. But so far, there hadn’t been enough snow to go skiing. Now, everything was white, the ground was covered with 50 centimetres of snow. It must have snowed all night!
Jean quickly woke up his friends who could hardly believe their eyes. “Finally!” they shouted. There were all heavy sleepers, but nothing could have kept them in bed. They wanted to get out in the snow as quickly as possible. Even the cold didn’t bother them, there was so much to do. First, the friends built a snowman. Then they had a snowball fight. They went to the mountains with the sled and the snowboard. Sophie even brought her ice skates.
The children weren’t the only ones enjoying the snow. Behind them, skiers could be seen riding the skilift and coming down on skis at full speed. There was also a polar bear on skis! Only the snowman was shivering with cold, he wished it were summer. He had a cold and icicles were hanging from his nose.
What? A snowman with a cold and a skiing polar bear? Jean looked around, bewildered. Oh no! He was still in bed, it had all been a dream! Disappointed, he looked out of the window onto the street. But wait a minute! Everything was white!
“It snowed!” shouted Jean excitedly to wake up his friends.
