My favourite restaurant

The Cuetzalan serves delicious food. Their menu offers typical dishes from Mexico. They use recipes to create different kinds of meal. Their menu includes mole, enchiladas verdes and tacos. The cuetzalan serves mole, it is wonderful because it tastes very sweet but once in a while it tastes bitter, however it tastes very delicious. In the afternoon you can choose from their menu of dish. In general all their dishes taste delicious! I often go to the Cuetzalan. There isn’t any better place for me!

Book Review

The unbearable lightness of being by Milan Kundera.

This is the story of an impossible love between Thomas and Mary. The novel is set in a wonderful city in France. The book tells the story of a love at first sight however this love is just a dream for Thomas. Throughout the story, horrible things happen to Mary and Thomas, but still their love will not die. Milan Kundera only wrote five novels and it has become one of the best love stories in world literature around the world. The unbearable lightness of being is one of the most successful love stories for young people!!!

Email Dear colleague…

I’m just writing to check my travel plans for my visit next week. I will arrive by train, since the train station is just outside the City, it’s probably best to get a taxi to the conference centre. When I get to the conference center, I’ll introduce you to everyone and I will ask for you at the reception! After, I’ll go to my hotel and I’ll rest a little. I would like to have dinner in the evening with you, a delicious meal. If there are any problems, you can call my mobile phone. My mobile phone is: 5-5-3-5-5-8-4-9-9-8 I look forward to meeting you next week!

Bye for now. Joel.

Reply from my colleague… Dear Joel… I look forward to meeting you next week too!. If you have any problem to go to the conference, We’ll help. This is my mobile number: 1-5-1-1-2-1-9-5-8-7

Best wishes. Cesar. You can listening here: https://audioboo.fm/boos/1756921-podcast-n-4

Dear Mr. Ellis,

I’m writing about your advertisement for volunteers at the international sporting event in July. I’m very interested in all sports, especially athletics!. I’ve participated as a volunteer on a number of conversation projects but I have not knowledge of French. Also, I’ve worked as a volunteer at other international events, as the “National Basketball Congress”. On the other hand, I took part in a project in Mexico City to meet people from all over the world. I would be grateful if you could send me more information about your volunteer programme in July. I’ve loved sports all my life.

Bye for now! Joel José Martínez.

The advantages and disadvantages of mobile phones

The mobile phone has revolutionised people’s lives all over the world. All the people use the mobile phone every day for their leisure, studies or to contact family. Using the mobile phone has many advantages. Firstly you can talk with other people around the world. One of the main advantages is equipment with extra features (mp3, GPS, camera etc). However, young people have adopted the mobile phone as form of expression. First of all, the consumerism compels people to buy the mobile phone just for fashion. In addition, the mobile phone generates radiation that can affect humans.

As far as I’m concerned, the mobile phone is useful if you know to use it.

The advantages and disadvantages of the teamwork.

The teamwork has helped many people because it’s a useful tool, it’s a useful way to do things complicated and difficult. There are several advantages. First of all, the effect of sinergy. However, there are also some people who look for better results in teamwork. Secondly, it increases individual learning by sharing knowledge. In addition, you can meet social needs. On the other hand, teamwork may cause some problems. Firstly, it lack of organization. One of the main disadvantages is difficulty in making decision. Lastly, less effort of some team members.

In my opinion, the teamwork is very useful if you can have a good organization. The teamwork is better than independent study.

How to waste our free time today?

In life, people have too many things to do, especially when we are young, for example, friends, boyfriends, girlfriends and family. On the other hand, people waste their free time in front of television or in front of video game! Other persons spend all their free time at work because it’s very important for them. Somehow, we lack time for what is important. Actually we don’t have free time for ourselves! It’s certainly true that we waste our free time in useless things, however, people could use their free time more wisely, for example, doing exercise or having fun. As far as I’m concerned, we can use our free time as we want but, somehow, we should have fun and to be happy with everything we do. In addition, time is money!

The love of money is the root of all evil

People often make the mistake of thinking that to have money is the only thing useful in life. On the other hand, money is very useful because it allows you to buy things and have fun, but it is very dangerous to have much money, in addition, money is very important in the lives of all people, however, when you fall for it, it becomes an indispensable thing for your life! On the other hand, you can say “money can buy many thing”, but actually, it can’t buy happiness and friendship of a person. It is certainly true that without money you die, but you also die for the love of money!

In my opinion, you could waste your life with “the love of money” or you could be happy with some money. I believe that, there are more important things than money.

(Email)

Dear Cesar:

Last week, I visited the city of Oaxaca. I went with my family. We stayed at a hotel in the center of the city. When we explored the city, we visited a popular tourist attraction. On of the main tourist attractions in Oaxaca is the archaeological area of Monte Alban because you can learn a lot of information from our ancestors. On the other hand, you can see a beautiful and wonderful sky. After our wonderful visited, we had lunch, we had a lot of traditional food in this city. This restaurant serves delicious food. Their menu offers typical dishes from Oaxaca. They use recipes to create different kinds of meal. That’s great! In my opinion, there isn’t any better place for me! Oaxaca is a small city and there are lots of historical buildings. If you go to Oaxaca, you can learn a lot of things, for example, you can learn about its traditions or gastronomy!

I hope you come son! Joel

(Email) (second composition)

Hi Cesar! I hope you are very well. Let me tell you a bit about my town. My town is called Tulyehualco and it’s near the capital city. Tulyehualco is an old town. It’s also a wonderful place for agriculture because there are large farming land areas. On of the main tourist attraction in Tulyehualco is a historic church. This church is very old, however it’s beautiful. There are also many historical houses in this town. On the other hand, Tulyehualco has many traditions, for example, “the fair of ice cream”. When you testing many flavors of ice cream is wonderful !

The worst thing about Tulyehualco is that it’s a bit quiet and there aren’t many restaurants. But, somehow, Tulyehualco is an interesting place to visit.

In spite of this, I love Tulyehualco ! bye for now !

Joel

Learning Reflection

Why am I studying English? Well, because it is very important for my life.

In my opinión, is important to learn English because it gives us opportunities in the world, however it's very difficult. I hope one day to learn English. All I need is motivation! One of the main problems of learning this language is the lack of interest in each of us, however, support of a teacher is very important in the life of every student. On the other hand, when you want to learn English, the best you can do is read and read in english every day… Actually, you can learn everything you want, but the most important is your self interest to obtain new knowledge.

As far as I’m concerned, the english language is the second most important thing in my life!
