What´s better romance movies or scary movies? Monserrat: Hello girls! Jesica: Hi ,Monse! Laura: Hi Monse! J: How are you? M: I'm very well. J: Why? M: Because i have free tickets! L: Really? M: Yes, Would you like go to the cinema with me? J: It's a good idea! L: Yes, let's go. M: What do you prefer romantic films or horror movies? J: Ithink horror films are better because they are more interesting. I guess these films have more action than the others, but I don't like the people killed in these movies. L: I think romantic movies are better because they are more tender than horror films. These are my favorite movies. Furthermore, romantic movies have fantasy and happy ending. M: I guess both films have something in common, but in my opinion I think that romantic films are more appropriate for a date with your love and horror films to come out with your friends. For me the two are my favorites but i like more romantic films because they show love in special way.

Audio boo We could speak in Audio Boo, and I knew about my mates, because everyone answers the next questions: 1. Describe your ideal job — where would you work? What would you do? 2. Recall your very first day of school. How did you feel? 3. What song, when you hear it, transports you back in time? What time in your life does it transport you to? Describe that time in your life in detail. 4. If you were a mad scientist and could create a cure for any disease, which disease would you cure and why? 5. Do you believe in ghosts? Why or why not? 6. What is your worst quality as a human? Describe it in detail, and why you think it’s bad. 7. If you could have one superpower, what superpower would you choose? Why? 8. Which food, when you eat it, instantly transports you to childhood? 9. If you were able to clone yourself, how would you divide your duties? 10. Go back in time to an event you think could have played out differently for you. Snap off time and let alternate history have its moment: tell us what could, would or should have happened. 11. When was the last time you felt really, truly lonely? So, I knew more about they.
