I read Cindrella when I was a child but I didn't read Rapunzel. I liked it very much. It was about a girl and her family. I saw a movie about Little Red Riding hood. There was a little girl, her grandmother and a hungry wolf in the story. It was a very good story and a very good movie. 
My favourite film is the Godfather. My favourite film music is the music in the Godfather movie.

"so....... that" kalıbı kullanılırken, so ile that arasına sadece sıfat (veya sıfatlar) yazılırken,  "such....... that" kalıbında such ile that arasına sıfat tamlaması; yani hem sıfat, hem isim gelmelidir. İngilizce çalışırken, bu iki kalıp arasındaki farkı tekrarlayarak ve pratik yaparak konuyu daha iyi kavrayacağız.

Cinderella is so beautiful that Steven falls in love with her.
Cinderella is such a clever girl that she will make the right decision.

"such..... that" kullanmak istediğimiz zaman, sadece sıfat değil, bir sıfat tamlaması kullanmamız gerektiğini unutmayalım.
-In my story, the old witch's house was made of chocolate ice cream and it was very cool inside. In my story, the children eat so much ice cream that they don't fit in the witch's oven. Because of this, the witch can't cook them. The children give the witch some chocolate ice cream too and she likes it. In my story, the children and the witch become friends and they live happily together ever after.
What do you think of my story? Do you like it?
-I don't like it. I think the children should cook and eat the witch because she is not so fat that she doesn't fit in the oven. And what happened to the father?
-I don't know, I haven't thought about it yet.

 

 

I like the witch very much. She is a very good cook. She can cook lots of bread, cakes and sugar. She can also cook children. She must be very strong too.
The witch is tall. She is 22 years old. She has got blonde hair and blue eyes. She has got big ears and a little nose. Her clothes are very new and stylish. She wears a red t-shirt and a blue skirt. Her skirt is the same colour as her eyes. She has got seven fingers on her right hand and six fingers on her left hand.
So, what do you think of my charachter?
