Where and When In Mexico City people generally have breakfast at home before work or school and then they have small snack in the middle of the morning. The working day typically starts at 8 o’clock or 9 o’clock. A lot of people at work have just half and hour for lunch so It’s typical to have a small lunch at lunchtime and big dinner in the evening. School generally finishes at about a 2 o’clock and a lot of people finish work at 5 o’clock or 6 o’clock. Most shops close at 6 o’clock blut big supermarkets stay open until 9 or 10 o’ clock. It’s typical to have dinner at 8 o’clock….. It’s typical to go for a drink after dinner

Unit 3: Family and Friends ¡hello Barbara! How are you? I’m writing because my cousin’s on holiday in France with her family. They want to spend next weekend in Paris. Do you have time to meet them and give them some suggestions- things to do, places to eat, etc?. My cousin’s name’s are Danna and Liliana. Liliana likes to watch t.v and read books. Is there a library in the area? Danna likes to listen to the music and chatting online. Does the town have an internet cafe?. And They all love french food! Thanks for any help you can give, and don’t worry if you can’t meet them. All the best. Your friend Viridiana

Unit 4: Bed and Breakfast Mr Perez I’d like some more information about the holiday apartment to rent. The description says it’s a big apartment. How big is it? How many rooms are there?. The description also says apartment is near the city centre. How far from the centre is it? Can we walk there? Could you send me the address?. Another question is Does it have internet access? and is there a supermarket near the apartment?. Finally, I’d like to know about the price and when it’s available. Is it available for one or two weeks?. I look forward to hearing from you. Yours faithfully Viridiana

Unit 5: Film and Television The Real Entertainment Site the programmes that real people recommend. Category: T.V programmes Starting next Friday we can all watch the T.V series ( a comedy programme) called Big Time Rush. It’s on channel 316 at 8 p.m every night. It’s set in a town called L.A in U.S.A and it’s about some amazing guys live in Palmwoods. They are from Minnesota and they want to be big stars. They love L.A. They think that it is a much more interesting place. The other setting in the programme is Rocque records. There, they film their songs and sing. A lot of people think it’s funny, but I recommend it because I love it. It’s a comedy but sometimes it’s quite funny.

Unit 7: News and Weather

This happened six years ago. When we were at Michoacan in the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary. When we arrived the weather was fantastic!. It was beautiful to see the vast forest and butterflies. But in the forest the weather is fresh and cold. At first we very thrilled to see the forest, I liked the trees and flowers. A little later we went to eat at a nearby restaurant. During the afternoon it was a bit cold. In the end, we decided to return to the city the wind blew a cloud away during the afternoon. This is an experience that I lived with my family. A wonderful experience!

CONCERT OF COLDPLAY- LIVE 2012 The concert of Coldplay was two years ago it took place in Paris. The concert was wonderful and funny. There were one thousand of people, from many different countries. During the concert there were fireworks, colorful lights and great music. They sang paradise, fix you, Us Against the world among many others songs. The aim of the event was to entertain people and have a good time with great music!. The thrilled people sang during the concert. It was fantastic to see my favorite band on stage. IT WAS A GREAT EVEN!!

Unit 8: Coming and Going

The transport in Mexico City In Mexico City most people go to work by bus or metro. Metro is very cheap and fast. People usually take the metro. It is faster and more efficient than buses or cars. At the moment people are going by Metro. A big problem is that traffic is heavy. Car accidents are serious. The situation is getting worse in Mexico City.
