Looking back


When I started Batxillerat I thought that these years were more difficult but months later I had seen that Batxillerat is more similar than ESO, well batxillerat has more homeworks every day because if you don't have homeworks like maths you won't pass.
Furthermore the others subjects also request more work.

In these years I can improve a lot in all subjects, but as I'm very lazy always I need more time to do exercises or study for exams. But ever I thought positive, also in these two years I can see my evolution, the first course I need to recovered 5 subjects, only recovered 4 maths was very difficult.

This year I need to recovered 3 less than the last year, but I think that this is so difficult but if I believe in myself I can do this and much more things.
My lucky is that for my degree I only need 5 to enter, I am satisfied with my improvement in these years, also I can do new friends along course.

Related with my English Blog I think that it has helped me a lot, because to make it you must search a lot of information, look for new words, listen songs, understand the letter...is a lot of job and time but this is the only way to learn a language. In my opinion every school must make a blog with a lot of posts, is one of the techiniques to learn.
In my case I have improved a lot, comparing my fisrt post with the last they have changed a lot, especially the verb tenses, the use of "the"...My english vocabulary is richer than two years ago.
One of my best posts is Fast Food http://xicodecalle.blogspot.com/2010/11/well-today-ill-speak-about-fast-food-i.html, I believe that is the better because I like all relationated with health and care the body, so I can express myself and help to other people and here I put some technic words.
About my Oral Presentations, comparing the firts with the last they have changed a lot, at the begining I was very nervous and I make very stange movments, but then when I see the videos and the mistakes that I did I can changed it. My pronunciation has changed a lot too, at the begining I say the words like I think but now I always serach the real pronunciation on wordreference or other sites, because I Know that's difficult for me!
In general in this two years I really feel that I have improve, maybe not enough but I Know many things more.

Now is the final opportunity to pass batxillerat and all students can they got!

Formal Letter

Carrer Carmenço 132
17487 Empuriabrava
Spain

13th April 2011


John Rich
Director General
World Nuclear Organization



Dear Mr John Rich

My name is Christian Ibarra and I am a student of IES Castelló d’Empúries, from Spain. I write you this letter to expose you my opinion about the Japan disaster.

First of all, I think that what happened it was a big natural disaster because of the Tsunami and the Earthquake. But now, one of the biggest problem is the radiation of the nuclear power of Japanese Power plant.

In addiction, due to this radiation, a lot of people are in danger right now, and they can not eat or neither drink anything, because everything is infected by the radiation.

Moreover, this tragical problem not only affected food, but also people’s health. This radiation can cause mental and physical problems to the actual and the next generations, increasing the number of diseases.

As long as no one can stop this situation, those innocent people will live in pain, so we all should help them and try to find a solution as soon as possible.


I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Christian Ibarra

Passarel·la


We went to Passarel•la last Friday, Passarel•la is a summer disco which opened on Friday. It was the opening and everybody said that they would go. At the end of the day, my friends and I decided to go to Passarel•la to spent a good time together.
We went to Sikim to drink something and then we went to Timoner , both of this names are bars of Empuriabrava that we went often with friends. More or less at 12:30pm we went to Passarel•la, at the first there weren’t people but around half past one, people started to arrive. We met with lot of people, some people that you never watch at the street and when you go to the disco you always watch them.
When we went to Sikim, we took some flayers, as a result we didn’t pay anything for Passarel•la, they deal us like kings because we went to VIP longue. As a result, we had a good night! I hope that we can repeat in summer.

James Blunt - 'So Far Gone'

Tell me the wars you're fighting/ Explica'm les guerres que tu lluites
Behind the smile you're hiding / Darrera el somriure que estas amagant
All the things I know you want to say / Totes les coses que jo sé que vols dir

We tried our best to find us / Vam intentar trobar-nos de la millor manera
But there are no lights to guide us /Però no hi ha llums que ens guïn
I can't sleep beside a stranger now / No puc dormir al costat d'alguna cosa més rara.

Piece by piece we fall apart / Tros a tros ens desfem
With every beat slows down my heart / Amb cada batec alenteixo el meu cor

[Chorus]
So I'll just say what you won't say / Per això, només diré el que no vols dir
and I'll take the blame if it is for your sake / I agafaré vergonya si es per el teu bé
No turning back on what you can't save / No donaré la volta en el que tu pots salvar.


So far gone / Hem anat lluny
Yeah, we're so far gone / Si, nosaltres estem molt lluny

I've tried hard to remember / He intentat recordar durament
This prison cell used to be a shelter / Aquesta presó era un refugi
Now we're just looking for the best way out / Ara estem intentat buscar el millor camí per escapar
I can't fight you anymore/ No puc lluitar més
You're already one foot out the door / Estas amb un peu fora de la porta


[Chorus]
So I'll just say what you won't say / Per això, només diré el que no vols dir
and I'll take the blame if it is for your sake / I agafaré vergonya si es per el teu bé
No turning back on what you can't save / No donaré la volta en el que tu pots salvar.


So far gone, / Hem anat lluny
yeah we're so far gone / Sí, estem molt lluny

And this is the face of letting go/I aquesta és la cara de deixar anar
And these are things we already know / I aquestes són coses que ja sabem

So I'll just say what you won't say / Per això, només diré el que no vols dir
and I'll take the blame if it is for your sake / I agafaré vergonya si es per el teu bé
No turning back on what you can't save / No donaré la volta en el que tu pots salvar.


so far gone / Hem anat lluny
we're so far gone / nosaltres estem lluny


So I'll just say what you won't say / Per això, només diré el que no vols dir
and I'll take the blame if it is for your sake / I agafaré vergonya si es per el teu bé
No turning back on what you can't save / No donaré la volta en el que tu pots salvar.


So far gone, /Hem anat lluny
yes we're so far gone /Si, nosaltres estem lluny
yes we're so far gone /Si, nosaltres estem lluny
So I'll just what you won't say / Per això diré el qe tu no vols dir


As you know, some weeks ago Fukushima lived the worst nuclear accident. There are some reactors and some of them now are close. This mistake, adds all problems that Fukushima suffered (earthquake and tsunami). Radioactivity released exceeds that one person can be exposed in a year, that’s a bad new because a lot of people that were exposed to the radiation, in a future they can develop diseases. However, the radiation is low and there won’t many problems for the health of people.

The Government of Japan said that the explosion hasn’t been in the reactor and hasn’t generated any significant radioactive leakage; they decided to expand the perimeter to evacuate all people. I think that this decision it’s very successful because you ensure the health of people.
One of the most important problems that I think that they’re very significant is that a lot of families lost their house, family, things…Recover all this things will be impossible…
We’ve to help to this people like when we helped to Haiti, they’ve the same right!

I would like to show a video that explain good all the mechanism, the good working, the problems that the reactor has and some opinion of Akira Omoto that works for Japan Atomic Energy Commission.

Exams


It’s time to exams for us and for this dates everybody have stress, we’ve to work a lot for the final exams. We’ve to think about the future, about our studies. Next year everybody will be in different places, and we’ve to fight for get our place at the University.
I think that these two years have been difficult and at the University will be different or I hope so. I think that batxillerat is hard and at the University you study interesting subjects that you like. You don’t have homework and you’re only worried about exams. So, it’s sounds really good!
We’ve to work one more week and then study for the selectivity and enjoy our long summer! Start with our trip to Menorca
So, good luck for the exams!

Trina

I was looking some videos and I find an ad that Rodri and I did two years ago.
I remember that it was difficult to think about the ad, because we didn’t know what type of ad we could do. We started to think about the ad and he had an idea, we decided to do an ad about “Mixta”. It was fun because we went to the supermarket to buy some “mixta” for our ad.
Ad starts with Rodri, he started to try the bottle of Mixta (the bottle didn’t appear in the video), then Marcos our friend and I, joined to open the bottle. Then Laura appeared and she said that what are we doing, then the three bottles appear.
I update the video, so you can see our small ad.


Relax


I don’t have topics to talk about; I’m so exhausted about everything, not only about English. There are many exams to do and so much to study. I try to think about something about relax, like our beach, where I spend lot of hours in summer. I like summer because we don’t have school, it’s hot, we can relax, we don’t have to worry about anything, we can go to the beach and swimming pool, and we can sleep until 12 or 1 in the afternoon..! Everything is perfect! But everything change when you are 16 years old and you have to start to work in summer, work in summer is like a tradition, you have time for you but it’s not like before! You have to wake up every day, work 8 hours per day and you don’t have time to go to the beach, you’re tired to go to parties... I try to work this summer for earn money and I try to go to parties and stay with friends too! I can say that summer is the best time and the best season..!

Champions


This post is about my team, Unió Esportiva Figueres, Wednesday 11 we won the championship, we played wednesday because was a postponed match. We won against Farners 1-2, in the minute 62 Fernando scored our first goal, four minutes later I scored our second goal, If anybody had seen they would have said that was luck because the goal was be when central of Farners try to refused the ball and ball impacted at my ass and the balloon was went to the net.

We need beat to Farners, because we would be champions only if We won against them. When the referee blew a whistle all of us exploted of excitment, emotion. Our coach jumped to the green with bottles of champagne, in this moment we were champions at the same time that Barcelona also won the title.

After in the changing rooms the party continued with champagne, all of us were in the showers celebrating the title, we put coach and the pshysiotherapist under the showers. The worst thing that we won the league on wednesday is that as not was weekend we can't do nothing after because we all had class the follow day.

20% of the world's population consumes 80% of its resources

20% of the world's population consumes 80% of its resources


Nowadays developed countries use nearly all the energy witch is at 80%, and the less developed and developing countries only use 20%. there is a big difference in how much energy countries use.the major energy sources in witch the more developed countries use are in the less developed contries and they are not getting most of it. todays primary energy source is oil and its 40% of all energy use.


Furthermore the resources that they used are produced by the developing countries for the developed. For this accion the developing countries can't improve these economies.
Now the most ecologist countries wanted an alternative resource to keep the world, but the most importants countries don't listen to ecologist.


The resources that I talk are about: especially oil. This resource is for get energy to poblation like heater or fuel. This is the resource that move the world.
the only way to keep the world is want a renovable resource that they can keep the world and these people.

MIC


MIC is a mediterranean international cup, this year my team: Unió Esportiva Figueres have played this tournament in Farners and Lloret de Mar.

In this tournament the most famous teams that played are Brasil, Mexico, Aspire Football dreams.
We played against Mexico, Farners and Tossa de Mar, the first match was be against Mexico, anything had betted for us, but in less than 1 minute we scored the first goal, but Mexico moreless in ten minutes later drawed the match. In the second part we went back to get ahead on the scoreboard, finally the match are draw 3-3, in this moment we gave a sorprise.
Against Tossa was very easy we won 10-0 later we played against Farners and we drawed 0-0.

The follow day we play against favorites of tournament Aspire Football dreams, this match was very difficult, the firsts 5 minutes they scored 2 goals, after we try to scored 1 goal but this was mission impossible, the referee would favour to Aspire because they have to pass the elimination. After this defeat we ended our tournament.

This was the first time that I go a international competition, I think that is so exciting.

Formula 1

Follow sunday will started the show of formula 1 in Australia of Melbourne track. The favourites to win this year are; Alonso, Vettel and Hamilton, but this year the FIA introduced more changes respect last year, this changes can be affect to this competition and shown formula 1 more interesting because the second teams like Toro Rosso, Renault or Hispania have oportunities to make points. This year the most important thing to do a nice races is that the teams have a nice planification.

My travel to manchester


I've been to Manchester on 5 of December. I traveled with three friends (Iñaki Fernández, Marc Barneda, Baldiri Gironella). When we arrived to Leeds airport we felt a really freeze of England. After we taken a taxi to go to center of Manchester the first thing that we does was be searched a place where we can eat for less money, we found an indian, for me I was be the most intelligent of us because I asked all without sauces, I can say that the sauces was very spicy.
When we finished to eat we taken a taxi to Woodsland road ( Is a town where we've an hotel)

The three days that we stayed there was be moreless similar, always we went to a comercial center in picadilly circus for eat KFC, the three nights only we go out two nights, these nights was be the best nights, and the next morning anyone remember anything, furthermore after the first party night we went to Old Traford to seen a match, Manchester against Valencia.

Sincerely we don't seen anyone monument but neither were many monuments in this city, this travel was be the better in my life, at this moment, the following travels will be better than this? How knows?

Oral presentation




In my oral presentation I used powerpoint as resource with some images for help the explanation at all people. I prefer used this resource because is a good suport for the presentation and for don't lost the text. In this presentation I talked for about 5 minutes more or less.

Body language & eye contact

During my oral presentation I tried to look at people but the nervous and the technical words was doing this work more difficult, when I feelt nervous I put my hand in my neck. Sometimes I needed to read my notes because was a difficult topic to explain but I tried it.

Structure

I think that my structure was good, because first I explained the reason of I choose this topic, then I started to the theoretical part where I explain the differents types of injuries in the world of football. After explained my practical part where I tallen my interview to players of Figueres and compare the results with the objectives. Finally I decided don't put a video of injuries because I think this can be too lurid to people.

Language

This is the most important part of the oral presentation, because in my research project I used a lot of technical words in catalan that is so difficult to translate correctly, but I've to improve my oral language furthermore I can control my nervous well I can pronounce better.

Pronunciaton & Intonation

I know that I speak very quickly when I felt nervous for this reason I can upgrade my pronunciaton only was speaking more slowly, but for the intonation I think that is correct but the real problem is the pronunciaton.

For all these my final mark would be an 6. I think that I need to improve a lot to upgradre my english level but I'll get

Writing, Riviera Maya


My perfect dream holiday is going to Riviera Maya
Since some years ago I’ve a dream. My dream is going to Riviera Maya, I know that going to Caribbean is expensive but I try to go upon a time in my life.


A lot of people have this dream, it’s a place that everybody would to go it. Still there are people that prefer going to the mountain and having an adventure that is a good idea too. But I’m sure that I prefer a beautiful beach with white water, exotics drinks, do diving, and see exotic animals...
I think that everybody need relax. The airline ticket is very expensive and you have to spend a lot of hours in a plane (we know that go by plane is tiring and boring) but then it would be worth.
Also, if I could chose I would do a luxury cruise with all expenses paid it would be, fun, great, fantastic..


I like to see the different ways to live and different cultures of the world.
At the moment I’ve to stay at the “beautiful” beaches of Empuriabrava.

Broken, lifehouse



BROKEN, LIFEHOUSE

The broken clock is a comfort,
it helps me sleep tonight
Maybe it can stop tomorrow
from stealing all my time

I am here still waiting
though I still have my doubts
I am damaged at best,
like you've already figured out

I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing
With a broken heart that's still beating
In the pain there is healing
In your name I find meaning
So I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on
I'm barely holdin' on to you

The broken locks were a warning
you got inside my head
I tried my best to be guarded,
I'm an open book instead
I still see your reflection inside of my eyes
That are looking for purpose,
they're still looking for life

I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing
With a broken heart that's still beating
In the pain is there healing
In your name I find meaning
So I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on
I'm barely holdin' on to you

I'm hanging on another day
just to see what you will throw my way
And I'm hanging on to the words you say
You said that I will be ok

The broken lights on the freeway
left me here alone
I may have lost my way now,
haven't forgotten my way home

I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing
With a broken heart that's still beating
In the pain there is healing
In your name I find meaning
So I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on
I'm barely holdin' on to you

I'm holdin' on
I'm holdin' on
I'm barely holdin' on to you

TRADUCTION

El rellotge trencat és un confort
això m'ajuda a dormir aquesta nit
Potser demà es detingui
de robar tot el meu temps

Estic encara aquí esperant
Encara tinc els meus dubtes
Estic fortament ferit
com tu ja ho has esbrinat

Estic caient a trossos, estic amb prou feines respirant
amb un cor trencat que encara esta bategant
en el dolor està l'alleujament
en el teu nom trobo significat
així que estic aguantant, estic aguantant, estic
Estic amb prou feines aguantant per tu

Els panys trencats van ser un advertiment
tens l'interior de la meva ment
Vaig intentar el millor sent cautelòs
Sóc un llibre obert on anar
Encara veig el teu reflex dins dels meus ulls
que busquen un propòsit
segueixen encara buscant la vida

Estic caient a trossos, estic amb prou feines respirant
amb un cor trencat que encara aquesta bategant
en el dolor està l'alleujament
en el teu nom trobo significat
així que estic aguantant, estic aguantant, estic
Estic amb prou feines aguantant per tu

Estic penjat en un altre dia
només per veure que t'abraçaràs al meu camí
i estic penjat en les paraules que vas dir
vas dir que tot estaria bé

Les llums trencades en la carretera
em deixen aquí solament
potser he perdut el meu camí ara
però no he oblidat el meu camí a casa

Estic caient a trossos, estic amb prou feines respirant
amb un cor trencat que encara aquesta bategant
en el dolor està l'alleujament
en el teu nom trobo significat
així que estic aguantant, estic aguantant, estic
Estic amb prou feines aguantant per tu

Estic aguantant
Estic aguantant
Estic amb prou feines aguantant per tu




I like the rhythm of this song because it's beautiful and at the same time it's sad
It's difficult to explain why I like this song, the feeling and emotions are very subjectives and for each person is different.
Furthermore there are people that when they listen to the music and they only sing what they listen and maybe they don't know what the song say but I always try to find the letter.

Description of a person


I’m going to describe a boy, Aitor Salvador. We are the different age, He's young than me and for a long time we were together in the football team. We played together 2 years ago and now, he's a goalkeeper and I'm forward


He’s a little bit fat and small but He jumped more than me. He has brown eyes and hair, he's stronger but also is agile. We've a lot of funny moments, furthermore we enjoyed go to the parties together.


Personally he can be shy but normally he’s extroverted, he’s especially very generous and gentle. He transmits a lot of confidence to everybody and for this reason everybody explain their problems to him. He’s very social, sensitive and very lazy. He loves playing football like me, we started to play when he was 5 in the Coma Cros.

He's funniest, if you saw him you feelt the need to lauhg, he's very stronger but as is small this caused a big impact. We’ve got a lot in common, we have very good relation, funny moments like my greats goals to him or his saving hands.

Human rights

1.What are human rights?

Are the rights you have simply because you’re human

2. When did human rights start?

The human rights started on 10th December of 1948

3. Why were they created?

To reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person.

4. How many human rights are there?

There are 30 human rights

5. Which human right were you not familiar with?

Article 24.

Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay.

Sincerely I think that there are a lot of human rights, and when I know that only 30, I was surprise.I'm dissagree with this article because the majority of the poblation was working more than the stipulate hours.

6. Choose one human right and discuss:

- Everybody have the right to life, liberty and security of person.
I believe that not everybody have this right because there’re people that living in the street, in the third world or maybe people that are slave and for being so aren’t entitled to do anything, it’s like if we treated as different people. Everybody have the right to live free and safety.
I think that in my country is not fulfilled, because there are people that living in a very poor and bad conditions.

7. Are Humans rights relevant in the world today? why?

I think that every country have different rights. Everybody should have the same human rights, education, right to live...But some countries don't have this humans rights. I think that human rights are very important for us. We shouldn’t judge people by their appearance, their color, religion…

Discussion essay

How many hours do you spent in front of your computer? Nowadays a computer is one of the most important thing for people, almost everybody has it one or more computers in his homes.

On the one hand,computers steal a major part of time to the person who used this service. Spent your time in front of screen it's bad for your health because your eyes get tired, moreover, people who work with computer 24 hours a day usually have problems with their back due their bad posture.

But everything isn't bad, use a computer has revoluzionated society. Now everything is easier than before. Furthermore you don't lose your time to write another time with your pen. If you don't know something you have your computer and internet 24 hours.

In conclusion, I think that computures have an important role in our lives. I believe that lots of people can't live without computer because they use it for everthing.

"Callejeros"


Today, I’ll speak about Callejeros, I considere that it’s new, because Callejeros is a TV programme where you can see the real life.

This is urban programme where the objective is to see the different ways of life, the problems with sub, vagrants, slums, prostitution, drugs, erotic show, luxury homes, adolescents, street children… Callejeros centre a topic but they what happened lot families that happen about it. When Callejeros shows luxury homes and things about it, I watch the programme because it’s entertaining. But every Friday there is a different topic more or less interesting.

For my is a great production and I recommend this to all people

Fast food

I’ll speak about fast food.
It is a style of nutrition where the food is already prepared and served to rapidly consume in specializing establishments for example: McDonald’s. McDonald’s is a chain of restaurants where you can eat fast food, some of the main plates are hamburgers, chips, sandwiches and recently, salads and fruits. Fast food has created a lot of problems with health, because fast food contains many fats.
You can eat everything but with moderation you can’t leave the daily diet. I think that is the most important, because if you eat fast food every day you can finish badly with your health. The name 'fast food' comes because it's garbage for only a few nutrients that it contributes to the body.


This is true, but when you go to a place where you can buy fast food, you eat with the eyes or at least that is what I do… The first thing that you see of a food is his appearance, what does it look like? If the food looks good - you buy it, if the food doesn’t look good- you don’t buy it. Although it may be that the food doesn’t look better than the other and that all look bad has a better price and less calories.

Education

I'll talk about education because it’s an important topic that some people don’t give importance.

I don’t like study, this is the typical phrase of teenager and it increase every year. Nowadays, people don’t have interest for studies. They study because their parents say that it's important to study for the future, but what future? Now people don't study and it seems that children go to school like somebody who goes to the park... I understand that it's difficult to study, it's boring but if you would like to be something in your future you have study, for be somebody in your life.
Each generation is different. When our parents were children they couldn't study because they had to work, but if you ask to somebody probably they say: I wish I could study...

Now is the big problem of teenagers, the famous Ni-Ni generation..

Billionaire--- Travie McCoy' ft Bruno Mars


It's a current song that I like it because it transmit me some peace , also because the rhythm is different,I can understand a lot of words. I like the moment when the two singers sing at the same moment. It sounds great.
This singer has lots of songs that I love, for example nothin' on you

I hope you like it!


I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad
buy all of the things I never had
uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
smiling next to Oprah and the Queen

[Chorus]
Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh
I swear the world better prepare
for when I’m a billionaire

[Travis “Travie” McCoy]
Yeah I would have a show like Oprah

I’d probably pull an Angelina and Brad Pitt
and adopt a bunch of babies that ain’t never had sh-t
give away a few Mercedes like here lady have this
and last but not least grant somebody their last wish
its been a couple months since I’ve single so
you can call me Travie Claus minus the Ho Ho
get it, hehe, I’d probably visit where Katrina hit
and damn sure do a lot more than FEMA did
yeah can’t forget about me stupid
everywhere I go Imma have my own theme music

[Chorus]
Oh every time I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights
A different city every night oh
I swear the world better prepare
for when I’m a billionaire
oh oooh oh oooh for when I’m a Billionaire
oh oooh oh oooh for when I’m a Billionaire


[Travis “Travie” McCoy]
I’ll be playing basketball with the President
dunking on his delegates
then I’ll compliment him on his political etiquette
toss a couple milli in the air just for the heck of it
but keep the fives, twentys (?) completely separate
and yeah I’ll be in a whole new tax bracket
we in recession but let me take a crack at it
I’ll probably take whatever’s left and just split it up
so everybody that I love can have a couple bucks
and not a single tummy around me would know what hungry was
eating good sleeping soundly
I know we all have a similar dream
go in your pocket pull out your wallet
and put it in the air and sing

[Bruno Mars]
I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad
buy all of the things I never had
uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
smiling next to Oprah and the Queen
[Chorus]
I wanna be a billionaire so frickin bad!


James Blunt




I choose this song because I like his lyrics and especially what he says in the song, for my is one of the best sad songs in the world. Who hasn't this happened before?
I hope that you enjoying.

James Blunt - Goodbye my lover

Did I disappoint you or let you down?
Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?

'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun,
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.

So I took what's mine by eternal right.
Took your soul out into the night.

It may be over but it won't stop there,
I am here for you if you'd only care.
You touched my heart you touched my soul.
You changed my life and all my goals.

And love is blind and that I knew when,
My heart was blinded by you.
I've kissed your lips and held your head.
Shared your dreams and shared your bed.
I know you well, I know your smell.
I've been addicted to you.

Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

I am a dreamer but when I wake,
You can't break my spirit - it's my dreams you take.
And as you move on, remember me,
Remember us and all we used to be

I've seen you cry, I've seen you smile.
I've watched you sleeping for a while.
I'd be the father of your child.

I'd spend a lifetime with you.
I know your fears and you know mine.
We've had our doubts but now we're fine,
And I love you, I swear that's true.
I cannot live without you.

Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

And I still hold your hand in mine.
In mine when I'm asleep.
And I will bear my soul in time,
When I'm kneeling at your feet.

Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.
I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow.
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow.




Te decepcioné o te fallé?
Acaso tengo que sentirme culpable o debo dejar que me enjuicies?

Y es que vi el final antes de querer empezar
Si al ver que estabas cegada supe que gané

Así que con todo mi derecho cogí lo que era mío
Te robé el alma al adentrarse la noche

Puede que se haya terminado pero esto no ha acabado aquí
Estoy aquí para ti por si te interesa saberlo
Tocaste mi corazón, me llegaste al alma
Cambiaste mi vida y todas mis metas

Me di cuenta de que el amor es ciego cuando,
Me cegaste el corazón
Besé tus labios, sostuve tu cabeza
Compartí tus sueños y compartí tu cama
Te conozco bien, reconozco tu olor
He estado adicto a ti

Adiós amante mía
Adiós amiga mía
Fuiste la única
Fuiste la única para mí

Soy un soñador pero cuando despierto
No puedes romper mi espíritu porque -son mis sueños los que te llevas
Y si cambias, recuérdame,
Recuérdanos, así como todo lo que solíamos ser

Te vi llorar, te vi sonreír
Te observé mientras dormías durante algún tiempo
Me gustaría ser el padre de tus hijos

Me gustaría pasar el resto del tiempo contigo
Conozco tus miedos y tú conoces los míos
Tenemos nuestras dudas pero ahora estamos bien,
Y te quiero, te juro que eso es verdad
No puedo vivir sin ti.

Adiós amante mía
Adiós amiga mía
Fuiste la única
Fuiste la única para mí

Y aun sujeto tu mano con la mía,
En la mía cuando estoy durmiendo.
Y sufrirá mi alma en el momento
En que me arrodille a tus pies

Adiós amante mía
Adiós amiga mía
Fuiste la única.
Fuiste la única para mí.
Estoy vacío, cariño, estoy vacío.
Estoy, estoy, estoy vacío.

Oral presentation





In our oral presentation I used powerpoint as resource with some images that we did ourself. Doing a powerpoint presentation is good support for the presentation. I talked for about 5 minutes more or less.

Body language & eye contact

During our oral presentation I tried to look at people but I was nervous and I looked to the power point. I move my hand when I was talking. Sometimes I needed to read my notes.

Structure


I think that my presentation and structure was Ok. Alex introduced the topic and then he started to talk about how I met your mother. Then, I started to talk about bigbang theory. We did a little conclusion and we showed videos because our aims are that people had a basic knowledge form each sitcom. I think that our oral presentation have order, it means that we organize our ideas in order.

Language


This is the most important part of the oral presentation, because it’s difficult because you find some difficult words that you don’t know but with the nerves you don’t remember and at the end you speak simply. I tried to use connectors but I think that I’ve to improve.

Pronunciation & Intonation

Unconsciously I speak quickly but everybody knows that the nervous are bad… I believe that my intonation is ok. But I think that I have to improve because every word is different, with different pronunciation and different intonation…

For all these reasons my final mark, would be an 7%. I think that it’s ok but I need to improve my language and eye contact.

Body language and eye contact 10% 6

Actually the bullfighting is forbidden in Catalonian, the associations of greenpeace and similars than his.
The righters like PP defense this practise because they saying that the bullfighting is a cultural treasure like Paella or Raul.

Lately the groups that defense the bulls are numerous of others years, much part of poblation are dissagree with this "fiesta popular" and they revolted against nacionalist that defense this "typical sport". The worst of bullfighting is that this is a bussines for the people that like the torture of bulls or any animal.

This enterteinament kill a lot of bulls without reason, for "toreros" fight agains bulls ia a symbol of corage, but for the persons that didn't like this practise the torero is a killer without escrupulous.

The accion more miserableis when the killer cut the ears, testicles or tail of bull when he's is almost die. I think that this practise is a criminal accion for animals rights

Mourinho new coach

Jose Mourinho has been presented as new coach of Real Madrid during a ceremony held in the press room Bernabeu. There have been multitudes bath on the lawn of Chamartin, or photos on the main stage, even the presence during the president's press conference, Perez Florenitno. All very austere, but with hundreds of expectant journalists.

Beside it was Mourinho who sat Jorge Valdano, the first to speak: "Jose Mourinho was linked to Real Madrid over the next four years. It is an honor to have with us one of the world's leading coaches. We are happy to incorporate it into the Real Madrid "he said. Then explained that it is true that in the past clashed with new coach, but were solved long ago. 'Mou', meanwhile, threw a cloak to the general manager confirming the story that his old controversy has been settled.

Subsequently, the former Inter began to answer questions from reporters, many of them aimed at how to think your way of watching football at Real Madrid fit. But soon the Luso ended with romanticism and dropped the phrase that will surely accompany him for many press conferences: "The nice, nice, nice is not training or playing for Real Madrid. The nice, nice, nice is to win at Real Madrid. And this is my motivation, "said

The Portuguese pride called his signing by whites: "I do not know if I was born to coach Real Madrid, but surely I was born to coach football. And I like the most important challenges. My attraction to Madrid is the attraction for its history, their frustrations in recent years and its expectations of victory. It is a unique club for a player or coach may not be important for Real Madrid is a major gap in your career. "Luckily, and for work, my race is still very pretty, and now coach Real Madrid is an honor, "he said.

Titanic


A man full of desire to amass wealth goes after a famous diamond that apparently is at 4000 meters below sea level, inside the sunken Titanic. The respectable Lady Rose Dawson Rose Dawson (Gloria Stuart) already advanced in years, learns of the event and immediately goes to the place in words, that the reason that she is one of the survivors of the historic wreck. Once in place begins the narration of the love story between Jack Dawson lived and Rose De Witt on the Titanic.

Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio), a young dreamer and without major, who managed to board the ship due to the attainment of a third-class ticket after a disputed card game. For its part, the young Rose De Witt Butaker (Kate Winslet), belonged to the propertied class and above the boat generally despised those outside their social sphere, but Rose, she felt uncomfortable with the inflexibility and frivolity in his class.

Due to the artistry of Jack, expressed in its impressive sketches, Rose manages to fix it, and thereafter starts the romantic idyll that he wanted to be interfered with by her mother and fiance Cal Hockley (Billy Zane). At the end would be the force of nature that would separate these two compatible souls, the clash of the "unbeatable" (A lunatic captain dared to say that even God could sink his ship) Titanic with an iceberg, would end the life of thousands, rich and poor, leaving the dream of all a sum of projects and dreams that were submerged and a handful of survivors who for once failed to understand that regardless of the glory of this world, everything happens and there is nothing on this earth to hold as much as possible, because the only thing certain is that the end will come, and to God we must give account for the administration of our souls.

Naked News



In Canada they've a strange program of tv, they tell the news but at the same time the presenters was strip while they speak about the news.
The presenters aren't shy because they strips in front of cameras and act whit normally

I never seen this news, because in this country are not.

Jaime Cullum



I choose this song because, I like his style when he touch the piano, he converted a really crazy singer, but is one of best artist in the moment, this song is very addicted for me and I was felt a strange sensation about me.


Hello Innocence
Though it seems like we've been friends for years
I'm finishing
How I wish I had never begun
Though it should be the last one
And it's dragging me down to my knees
Where I'm begging you please

Let me go
Don't you know

I'm all over it now
And I can't say how glad I am about that
I'm all over it now
Cause I worked and I cursed and I tried
And I said I could change and I lied
Well there's something still moves me inside

She's a melody
That I've tried to forget but I can't
It still follows me
When I wake in the dead of the night
And I know that I can't find
That song going round in my head
Like the last things you said

Please don't go
You think I know

I'm all over it now
And I can't say how glad I am about that
I'm all over it now
Cause I worked and I cursed and I cried
And I said I could change but I lied
Well there's something still moves me inside

No I won't come back
No I won't come back
No I won't come back
No I won't come back

One dark morning
She left without a warning
And took the red-eye back to London town

I'm all over it now
I'm all over it now
I'm all over it now
I'm all over it now

I'm all over it now
And I can't say how glad I am about that
I'm all over it now
Cause I worked and I cursed and I cried
And I said I would change but I lied
Yeah there's something still moves me inside

Opinion Essay

We have almost learnt to respect our world.

In my opinion people don’t know how to respect our world and I don’t think that they have almost learnt to either.

I think that most people haven’t learnt to respect the world people are like they are. I mean that, if you are, for example selfish you‘re selfish all your life and for the time that you live nothing will change. For example if I recycle and I make things for the environment what can gain? Nothing, only my principles . I can be the cleanest in the world and the person that most respects the environment, but if I do it perfect, but I won’t gain anything, everybody needs to do it!
Actually the level of the contamination effect the air pollution and for this reason global warming is worse. In general contamination is caused by cars, electrical appliances on standby and littering and it’s our fault. Consequently the ozone layer is reducing.


In conclusion I believe the majority of people will never learn to respect the environment. We have to face the consequences.

Final evaluation

I’m going to explain my opinion and reflections. At first when I started to write and do things on the blog I thought “well, it’s not difficult but it’s a lot of time, but another fact is I think that it’s a good way to improve my English but I've problems because don't explain much time in blog and the last days I was stayed very nervous. I can express more things, and I can find other ways to express myself. I can’t see that my English improves a lot, but I can see that my shyness has improved for the better.


The best activity is the podcast because you can pronounce a lot of new words and also when you record the dialogue it’s a lot of fun (provided they do it with a friend). Also, I have learned to do letters, opinion essays... the structure and the forms to write. If we have exams it’s better to review the grammar and it’s very useful. I think that we need more days in class to revise the grammar.


The activity that I enjoy the most, where I don’t need to think, is watching a film- it’s the most entertaining thing that I do and with the subtitles, if you choose a good and easy film you can learn a lot of things. It’s not necessary to watch a film every day, if it’s necessary and I would like to do it again next year.

BP

The giant British Petroleum (London: BP.L - news) said the spill in the Gulf of Mexico was the result of an unprecedented combination of failures and in-house while investigating the disaster has focused on the work of other companies .

Meanwhile, on Tuesday there was a change in the color of the oil that comes from the well. BP said it was not a permanent change, but the engineering professor Bob Bea of the University of California at Berkeley said it could indicate that the flight arrived in a pool of more oil and less gas, which is more polluting.

On Monday night BP PLC submitted to the authorities one of their first reports on their research.

In his paper said that several control mechanisms must be sufficient to prevent the accident that began with the explosion of a platform on April 20 off the coast of Louisiana, killing 11 workers.

The largest producer of oil and gas in the Gulf of Mexico identified seven mechanisms by which paid special attention in their search for a cause.

Now the problem still about Gulf.

20th May 2010



Hi Marcel!


How are you? Thanks for your letter, I really liked it. I’m very glad to hear that
you are going to the United States with my summer family.

I would like to explain my trip, my experience. Everything started when my parents told me that I could take a magnific trip to another country. I set off on my trip the first weekend of July, I was very excited because it was my first trip of the year and also was the first time that I caught a plane. When the plane took off I was afraid. When I arrived in the Australian country a strange family was waiting for me. They took me to their house and it was really strange. I broke down crying because I was alone in another country.

At first I was shy and the family spoke but I didn’t answer. I was very well attended by the family and I could see that their appearance was strange but they were fantastic people, they cared and always gave me the best. My parents phoned me often and they could see that I was very happy.

In the morning I was in a private high school where we could speak English, every day, after I went to have lunch with the family. I found out that they have a lot of money and they always took me to different expensive restaurants of the city. I always visited a lot of places and every day I came across new things.
It was a fantastic trip, I want to repeat it this summer and I hope that we stay together.

Keep in touch!

The dead sea


According to the USA lifesaving Association 250 million people visit us beaches every year, but very few of them go swimming. And what is keeping te americans away from the waves?

Well the fear of sharks attacks, floating syringes, raw sewage and all shorts of other terrible things that are found in the sea. The numbers of water amusement centers (what we used to call "public swimming pool") in the USA has doubled since1995, while Americans build 200000 home swimming pools a year.

Anyway is it's any consolation for americans, the sharks cannot cope with the pollution anymore.
They are washing up dead on the beaches on Florida at a rate of 200 a week.

Mean while, fish farming is the fastest growing sector of the world food industry. It will soon be more people than cattle farming, but you still prefer wild fish rigth? Well, consider this humaan head was recently found in a Pacific cod caught by Australian fisherman

Maradona


The 1986 world cup is one of my first memories about football, and they are about one of the great’s footballers ever to have walked on earth. Diego Armando Maradona. When I watched a video of Argentina against England and the goal he scored, that stuck on my mind every day of my life, it was a miracle that planet earth was not knocked out of its axis when more than a billion people leaped at the same time.
I would play football in the park with my friends and try to do he’s same skills. When Maradona had the ball and went pass players he did it with slick finesse just like a football god. Running past player like a ghost, no one touched him, but who a player fouled him he would just bounce of a carry on.
When he walked into any stadium you could hear the roar of passion of all the people inside it, I could imagine with the amount of noise the stadium would rumble like an earthquake. When he went to play for Barcelona he was treated badly because Spanish football was very thought, but when he went to play in Italy for Napoli, even the pope himself went to watch a match because of him.
The hairs of that back of my neck stand up when I see him play. I shrive like I’m in a room that is minus ten degrees.


He loved football that why he always went back, he was like a yoyo always up and down. Drugs and alcohol that watt he did outside of the pitch, but inside the pitch he was like a magician. He was not only a footballer but some people say he was like a freedom fighter or a revolutionary, with is status he said what he wanted.
When he goes to a conference about equality and walks in the room is as if Maradona brings in the smell of revolutionary gun powder. He always helped the poor, because he uses to be one.

Oral Presentation

">


The racism that we know we can say that begins with the enslavement of black people that Americans used for field work, and others. This was one of the first things they did differentiate between races and giving as a supposed superior white race.

In America are also renowned cucuxclan the clan who came to kill people of other races.

Racism is a wrong perception of superiority, where only values abroad and to be different we are not like us and that is wrong.

One of the largest expanses of racism was the army of Hitler where he would not tolerate anyone who was not from the supposed Aryan (Adolf forgiving that if that was the reverse that race) with the German army spread this idea around the world like Italy also adopted this politic, this was a step backwards in the fight against racism.

Now try to avoid this type of conduct in all areas of society but there are still supporters of the misconduct that only makes destroying global cooperation.

But racism is not just dark people but also to followers of other religions, such as the Jews were killed en masse in times of Hitler.


EXEMPLES!!
A clear example of racism in sports would be racist when in sports they say black and more very bad things for example Eto’o versus Zaragoza He want go out because he heard noise racisms. About Obama's case there was also racism of much American than they can’t understood that he president are black.

Racism is also found in workplaces where people do not accept suitable only for their social status or skin color and this is outrageous.
In this world was threatened by having a different tone skin or be of another religion, one of the most famous cases of last year was the aggression of a passenger on a train from Madrid to be south-American.

Carles Puyol


Carles Puyol is a great captain of a great team: Football Club Barcelona, but Puyol is much more than a mere onpitch leader, he's the heart and soul of Barcelona.

He born in 1978 in La Pobla de Segur, he was debuted whit Barça first team on October 1999, in Spanish league match versus Valladolid under the orders of head coach Louis Van Gaal, Puyol first was played at right back but later he moved to the center, where he solidified as the anclor of the Barça's defense.

In 2006-2007 Puyol played under the orders of Frank Rijkaard gived a team formed by: Puyol, Xavi, Ronaldinho, Samuel Eto'o... to the title of champions league.
Puyol would be named the best defense of the champions.

In 2008 he raised the Eurocup after Spain defeated Germany 1-0 (F.Torres) in the final of this european cup.

And with the return of Pep Guardiola as head coach 2008-09 Puyol was a captain of the most succesful year in the history of the club. He won 6 titles in 1 year.

This piece of new is important for me because Puyol formed part of my favourite team and the best team in the world.

story

It was midnight and I was alone in the house.
Outside it was raining very hard.
I was getting ready to go to bed when I suddenly heard a strange noise
outside my room in the corridor. Then, when looked at the door.
I noticed that someone was turning the handle! I rushed over the door
and quickly turned the key in the lock. Then, I asked in a trembling
voice:
-Who is it?
-Your father
He opened the door but he didn't see anything, then he closed the door
quickly, suddenly he heard another voice that it said:
-You will die...
He ran to his sister's bedroom and he saw a terrible scene: his sister
was hugging on the ceiling.
He screamed and he hid under his bed, under his blanket. He was really
frightened... Then he heard some steps that were coming closer and
closer… and they stopped in front of the door. At once, the door was opened
and.. He could see the feet that were approaching him and
he became more scared. He could see that the man was trying to catch
his legs...when suddenly he woke up....it was just a nightmare.
He was terrified and he was crying, then he went to the kitchen,
he opened the fridge and he found his sister's head...
So was it a nightmare or a true story?
I don’t know but this story is frightened
