Unit 6: Science & Technology Mobile Phone Nowadays, more people have a mobile phone, we use it for several activities, such as calling to someone or just entertainment. Use of cell phone has many advantages. first of all, I think that the mobile phone is a good communication tool, it’s smaller than other electronic devices, in addition, because of the advance of technology it is a great entertainment center, I believe that the use is beneficial to people, whenever it is used correctly. There are also certain disadvantages is using the mobile phone. For example, it is a mortal distractor to drivers, in addition, the excessive use of the mobile phone is harmful for your health.

Television Many people always watch T.V., nowadays it is a daily activity. Watching T.V. has many advantages. First of all, I believe that watching T.V. is very good because people can learn about very interesting topics such as documentaries of animals or the news around the world. Today, there are T.V.’s with access to Internet, It is a great advantage to have more communication with other people. However, there are also disadvantages in T.V. For example, watch T.V. in excess is bad to the sight, it is a distractor, in addition, it favours the consumerism. In conclusion T.V. is very good when we watch a good program.

Unit 7: Time & Money Free Time •

How do we spend the free time?

Do we give importance to free time?

Is free time beneficial for us?

I believe, nowadays the youngs have more free time than their parents and grandparents. The leisure is a time of the day or week, that usually, we use to relax or to have fun. -How do we spend the free time? In my opinion, we spend very much time in videogames and social networks; I think that a good way to spend this with exercise or reading a book. -Do we give importance to free time? Sometimes we don't give importance to leisure and we waste this time, I think, if we organized this time in study, maybe, we would be the best students; however, always there is time to relax.

-Is free time beneficial for us? in my opinion, the leisure is good when it´s spent in activities such as, exercise, reading or with the family or friends, but, I think it is a bad idea to waste time just in social networks. In conclusion, leisure is a good option to invest time when we organize it correctly.

Life is Fast •

How do we spend our time?

Time is money

Everyday people live with more pressure, and we use as an excuse work or school, so, time flies, the day passes very quickly. How do we spend our time? I Think that we spend very much time in worries, we are stressed, so, the time is enough to work and sleep. Time is money In my opinion, more people waste time trying to earn more money, this is a reason so that the time isn’t enough for people.
