Introduction The purpose of this book is to show the readers the type of activities we have at Prepa 1 in our English class where we are incorporating the use of ICT (internet communication technologies). You will see how we built a writing project by creating a composition at the end of each unit. The topics are varied, I have created a profile, I have described my favorite food and restaurant, an email making arrangements , a blurb for a book cover and an email in reply to and ad. This activity has helped me practice and develop my language skills. These compositions reflect what we have seen in 8 units, where we were able to write a composition with the elements required, using the correct time and the necessary structures.
To My Dear Readers This work is aimed at anyone interested in learning English. I hope you enjoy this collection of writings as much as I did. Filiberto Sevilla

6 TH COMPOSITION â€œMobile Phoneâ€?. In todayÂ´s society, it is very critical the issue of mobile phones, because they are believed to cause dependence and limit the capacities of individuals. Beside it shows great consumerism in Mexico. Finally there is controversy regarding this topic. First of all, there are more advantages than disadvantages, starting with constant communication between parents with children, it can be transmit news from around the world and all this for a low price. Also an important aspect of communication within families. In my opinion, I like to be communicated with my family all the time. Many people believe that the use Mobile Phones cause dependence and addiction, causing a disconnection from from reality mainly adolescents, also for the ease of transmitting content not suitable for minors. I think the mobile phone is perfect for communication as long as it is properly used and it should not be restricted if it is given a timely and proper use.
7 TH COMPOSITION Immigrants to America With the new reforms in the U.S. , our compatriots mexican seeking work in the north country are at risk.These people are criticized, but the conditions in which they live are very bad and are forced to do that. It should be noted that mexican immigrants are an important work force of the U.S. economy. First of all, I think that Mexicans do a great work in the USA and are treated as the worst, there are great advantages for people who migrate . Mainly economical opportunities to raise their families. In my opinion it is bad crossing to the northern country , but with such progress it would be the only way out. The disadvantages are forced to leave their families, leave their roots and go to a distant and uncertain world. I think the U.S. government is way too severe, since migrants are an important part of society . However they are treated in the worst way and lose their dignity.
8 TH COMPOSITION Free time. In my point of view I think the new generation can live with more comfort, because the new technology makes life easy for all people. First with the internet we can find a lot of information, keep in touch, watch videos, documentaries, cartoons, because the internet is the new form to communication. Unfortunately most of the people spend more time in things aren't important. In conclusion I agree that the people can use the internet with one finality, but people should not spend all the time in front of computer, they can be with their family.
9TH COMPOSITION My free time In my point of view the universities only has to teach things to help us. I enjoy the free time to be with my family and friends for relaxing and I can concentrate in thing really important and personal. Enjoy The most important thing in this life is to enjoy it. Enjoy study and will be better day with day. First I use the free time to get culture. Conclusi贸n The most important thing there of life, is to enjoy it. Never forget that our free time and the technology are some advantages for a better life.
10 TH COMPOSITION “Describe a place of attraction.” Dear Alan I am writing to say hello, now that you tell me that you will go to city of Guadalajara on this holidays. I would like to tell you a bit more about the place. Last year, when the school year ended, I visited Guadalajara, It´s a beautiful city with ancient sites and very educated people. I was in the village called Zapopan. It´s a beautiful town, out of town with great history and tradition. I would recommend it. I had been there before that was my first time and I went as a tourist. How ironic, tourist in my own country. I was in Ex-hacienda la Magdalena, Palacio Municipal, Basilica de Zapopan, Plaza amistad, Museo de la Virgen de Zapopan, Museo de arte de Zapopan, Centro Cultural Universitario (Zapopum), Auditorio Benito Juarez and Arco de ingreso. Those are the most important places around Zapopan, and I would recommend everyone to go.
