    A few ideas you could include:
    *how emotional people are to greet/say goodbye to their acquaintances.
    *people running to not be late for a flight
    *seeing planes take off from a big window
    *tourists starting a new adventure
    *description of the terminal itself like how high the ceiling is and how polished the floor is until you can see your reflection in it.
    Good luck!

    I'm sorry but I'm not good in writing the sentences themselves, just the ideas. Ask someone in the creative writing section

    Do you happen to be Spanish(assuming this by your username)

    To the op- you should use alliterations, adjectives, the five senses to describe the atmosphere etc, good vocabulary and bring your story to life.

    Nope. This is what a lot people think on here but I suppose Poland and Germany are close to each other. I did German for GCSE though.

    I find languages great in the sense that I would like to see a foreigner speak my language(Polish)

    Languages are beautiful and I have seen youtube videos of people speaking like 2o languages which really is fascinating and making me want to try that out. These people must be gifted and talented at languages to be speaking so fluently.

    I agree about Spanish being easier than German, though I still would have liked to speak German a lot!
    I saw these videos too. I wish I were multilingual..

    Same here. For some people it make take ages to learn a new language but others can pick it up quickly.

    So far I can speak only 2 languages which are English and Polish.

    I really do not want to forget Polish language because languages are really important.
