Dear Miss Wiselady'.
I am in grade 9 at a school in town. I absolutely love my school, and I love my classmates, except one thing.
it seems that the girls are always saying negative things about our teachers, even our headmistress. This kind of gossip makes me uncomfortable and upset. 1 don’t think it’s good for the study atmosphere, and it would be terrible if the teachers found out. I don't know how to face up to this issue. What should 1 do?
Well, that is a nasty problem. If you really wanted to do something, you could explain how you feel. Tell them that they should not go on with the gossip. But it might be too direct for some people. I suggest you try to keep away from it as much as possible. Keep quiet, or better still, just leave them if you are not comfortable with the topic of discussion.

Mike: Hi. I'm good, thanks. Are you still living in the same place?
Michelle: Yes, I'm still in that ‘sleepy’ little town. But you know, I enjoy living there. It's quiet, and everyone is friendly. I don't really like the city. I feel like a stranger here. And it seems kind of dangerous, especially at night.
Mike: Well, I live here in the city, as you know. We live in an apartment downtown. The city is big, and it doesn't feel as safe as a small town like yours. But I think the people here are pretty friendly. My neighbourhood is like a small town with its own stores, cafes, and restaurants... and we can enjoy all kinds of entertainment: cinemas, museums ...
Michelle: OK, so then on weekends I should come into the city for all that.
Mike: OK. Sure!
