Read the text about EMOS, a teenage group.

EMOS – this word is short for emotional, which is the word that best describes them. Don’t confuse them with punk rockers or heavy metal fans, just because they wear black clothes. 

They are rarely so rebellious, but sensitive and shy, which is probably why they choose desks at the back of the classroom.

They are interested in subjects like Art, especially painting. They love writing poetry, which can help them to express their confusion, depressions, and the general feeling that the world is against them.

There are rumours that some emos injure themselves on purpose just to feel something at all, but who believes in stupid gossip!

They listen to alternative music, and their favourite hang-out is a place where they can talk in private, and that, of course, is the school bathroom.
