En: Joseph stood in front of the gate of Bratislava Castle. Sk: Bol to krásny deň a slnko žiarilo na modrej oblohe. En: It was a beautiful day and the sun was shining in the blue sky. Sk: Učiteľka Márie viedla školský výlet po nádhernej starej budove. En: Maria's teacher was leading a school trip through the magnificent old building. Sk: Deti sa tešili, ale Jozef mal problémy. Zabudol svoju domácu úlohu. En: The children were excited, but Joseph had a problem. He had forgotten his homework. Sk: Prechádzal sa po nádvorí a premýšľal, čo povedať učiteľke. En: He wandered around the courtyard, thinking about what to tell the teacher. Sk: Chcel byť úprimný, ale bál sa, že sa na neho bude hnevať. En: He wanted to be honest but was afraid she would be angry with him. Sk: Prišli do historického sálu so starými obrazmi a tapisériami. En: They entered a historic hall filled with old paintings and tapestries. Sk: Jozef sa cítil stiesnene. Musel nájsť spôsob, ako to vysvetliť. En: Joseph felt uneasy. He had to find a way to explain.

Sk: Rozhodol sa tam počkať na príležitosť a vymyslieť dobrú výhovorku. En: He decided to wait there for an opportunity and think of a good excuse.

Sk: Jozef sa pridal k ostatným deťom a učiteľka sa na neho pozrela. En: Joseph joined the other children, and the teacher looked at him. Sk: „Jozef, kde je tvoja domáca úloha?“ spýtala sa prísne. En: Joseph, where is your homework? she asked sternly. Sk: Jozef cítil, akoby mu srdce chcelo vyskočiť z hrude. Rozmýšľal, ako odpovedať. En: Joseph felt as if his heart was about to jump out of his chest. He thought about how to respond. Sk: „Pani učiteľka,“ začal váhavo, „zabudol som domácu úlohu doma. Ale v noci som sa učil o histórii hradu. Prečítal som veľa kníh a písal poznámky.“ En: Ms. Teacher, he began hesitantly, I forgot my homework at home. But last night I studied the history of the castle. I read many books and took notes. Sk: Učiteľka sa na chvíľu zamyslela a potom sa usmiala. „To je zaujímavé, Jozef. Povedz nám niečo, čo si sa naučil,“ povedala. En: The teacher thought for a moment and then smiled. That's interesting, Joseph. Tell us something you learned, she said. Sk: Jozef ožil. Začal rozprávať o kráľovi, čo kedysi žil v hrade, o bitkách, ktoré sa tu odohrali, a o tajných chodbách pod hradom. En: Joseph brightened up. He started talking about the king who once lived in the castle, the battles that took place there, and the secret passages beneath the castle. Sk: Deti aj učiteľka ho počúvali so záujmom. En: Both the children and the teacher listened with interest. Sk: Keď skončil, učiteľka povedala: „Jozef, v budúcnosti musíš nosiť domácu úlohu, ale dnes si nás všetkých zaujal. Dnes si dostal druhú šancu.“ En: When he finished, the teacher said, Joseph, in the future you must bring your homework, but today you have captivated us all. Today, you get a second chance. Sk: Jozef sa usmial a obrovský balvan spadol z jeho srdca. Nakoniec bol hrdý na to, že prekonal svoj strach a našiel spôsob, ako seba zlepšiť. En: Joseph smiled, and a huge weight lifted from his heart. He was proud in the end that he had overcome his fear and found a way to improve himself. Sk: Uvedomil si, že je vždy dôležité povedať pravdu a byť pripravený, ale aj že znalosti a odvaha môžu pomôcť prekonať ťažké situácie. En: He realized it is always important to tell the truth and be prepared, but also that knowledge and courage can help surmount difficult situations. Sk: A tak skončil deň na Bratislavskom hrade. Deti sa vrátili do školy plní nových vedomostí a spomienok a Jozef sa učil poučenie, ktoré mu ostane na celý život. En: And so the day at Bratislava Castle ended. The children returned to school filled with new knowledge and memories, and Joseph learned a lesson that would stay with him for life.
