Tell us about your summer!

The CNN Student News team has a lot going on this summer.  We’re working on some summer shows that will appear on our website each week and some new things you’ll see in August.  Of course, there will always be a few days to just relax as well.

What are you doing this summer?  Are you working? Traveling? Hanging out with friends?  We’d love to hear how your summer is going here on our blog. 

Don’t forget, you can also send us an iReport video or photo if you are 13 or older.  Go to our homepage, CNNStudentNews.com and look for the “In the Spotlight” section.  Click on “Send us your iReports.”

    I'm gonna miss CNN so much over the summer. I'm glad you'll have special summer shows once in a while. My whole 6th grade at my school watches this. I hope the sixth graders next year watch this and I hope the sixth graders this year will get to watch this as 7th graders. I love CNN Student News!

First, on weeks except monday will go the the children's libray. the design is cool, temperate is also cool because of air condition. and It has very useful books that I want.

    i'm studying English to pass the examination to became an English teacher, and use the cnn student news to learn English and know about the world.

    after it, i will have visited northeastern coast of Japan to swim in the sea!! but it might be suspended to next year, because of massive eathquake and tsunami. i hope Japan will be able to reconstruct the nation and became a nice place where we can feel free to trip around Tohoku region safely.

    Actually summer is sometimes enjoyable and boring. We know that after summer comes the rainy season. Rainy season enjoyable when you have no work in the outside and boring when you have work. So don't worry, we should face all the seasons either or neither. thanks to all........................

    The original plan was to find some work and start saving up money, but circumstances have not permitted that. Instead, I've been searching for some volunteering opportunities in my area- it's not as easy as it seems. Haha...
    I've been on a huge tennis binge...going to play at my local court almost daily- this is one sport I actually enjoy. 😛
    I haven't gone on vacation to anyplace exotic...but with Verne, I'm currently traveling to the center of the earth.

    During this summer vocation,i'm going to have internship in a famous company in our country.Maybe it's the last summer vocation in my life,because i'll graduate next year.From my experiences,we should make a detail plan about what you should do,or,you'll find it is very fast to spend this periods.then,you'll fell regret.

  113. JIn Yi

    I'm a student from China .
    I have 3 plans this vacation .
    First, I plan to study TOEFL . My parents and I have realized that English is very important , and if i want to study abroad, i must study it hard. Seriously though, I find it very difficult for me to learn every word. My vocabulary is too............ poor. But I believe I can learn well ^^
    My second plan is to play soccer with my friend during wednesday and Saturday morning . I want to make me healthy and i also love soccer very much . Most of my friends here love NBA but i love soccer better, though I can't play it well . But my soccer skills will be improved. ^-^
    Third, I plan to visit South Korea. I have some relatives there. when I was young , I lived there for 7years. So there are also many friends and teachers to visit.
    Maybe I will spend many happy hours studying (^^?) , playing sports, visitng friendly people.

    (Is the every sentenses correct ? ^^ )

    Seems like everybody is going to hang out. Well, I am planning to study little more this summer vacation. I should study English and especially Math a lot so that I can enjoy studying those. It would be little hard on hot summer days because my plan is quite harsh, but I am getting in to it!! Thanks for CNN student news for making me being interested in English!

Its a lot of fun but I am mainly wanting to see friends and family and sleep in late!!!!!!!!! Thank you CNN news!

    I do want to send a great, exciting summer vacation but it will be very boring this time. I have to study for high school entry. I would study, study, AND STUDY. Isn't it cruel to an usual student? Fortunately, I have one church camp. This camp is an alliance summer camp that many churches spend time together. It would be the only thing that cheers me up in this summer.

    July 13, 2011 at 7:51 am |
  130. Claire

    My summer contains lots of things that I choose to do. I like to hang with my friends, go swimming at the local swimming pool, play basketball with my friends, and play softball. However, sometimes i just like to chill at my house and have some "me" time. I think that summer is about having a lot of "you" time and relaxing because you usually dont have that kind of time during the school year. Hope everyone is having a great summer!!!!

    well, I haven't been on a summer vacation before, because I have to prepare for my exams in the beginning of my new term. Besides, I may go to countryside for a while, smell the flowers and enjoy the green hills. Oh, the most importan thing is my sister will teach me aerobics dancing, very interesting.

    I am retaking Algebra 1 in summer school because I didn't pass onto geometry for my Freshmen year. Getting into geometry this next year will help me go deeper into mathematics, because of the career path I'm choosing, it involves a lot of math and science. Summer school has really helped me and I'm doing a lot better than I did this last year! I'm very happy so far. I would like to get my degrees in a doctoring of some sort. Most likely I will go into the path of becoming a doctor because I absolutely love helping people in anyway that I can, that is one of the reasons I am in Girl Scouts, and my mother has always told me that I would be a good nurse (or something to that degree).
