Three metres above the sky

By: Celia Biedma, 1BTO C

It’s an Italian love story. At the beginning, it was just a book, but when people started to read it, Federicco Moccia, the director and the writer, decided to create a film. That happened two years after the book publication.

The story is about love. It’s like ‘Romeo and Juliette’ nowadays. The main characters are Step and Baby. They are very different but love emerges in both. Baby’s mother doesn’t like her daughter’s relationship, so she is always kept at home. But love is stronger than the punishment…

I really like this book. There is a second part too, but, from my point of view, the most beautiful and interesting story is this one.

I recommend this book!

COMPUTERS

By: Lorena Ocaña, 1BTO C
The advances of modern technology will be very important in the future.
As I see it, it´s essential to know how to use a computer nowadays since most of schools, offices and other work places need them.
On the one hand, computers make your work easy. They are fast and you can save a lot of time.
On the other hand, they have some disadvantages, for example, you need some practice to use it very well and this is sometimes very expensive.
Furthermore, If your computer breaks you will lose all the information.
Computers are very useful to download pictures, songs, films and different news.
In conclusion, computers are very important nowadays although in my opinion people need social contact to live.

My Best Friend

By: María Guerra, 1BTO A
I'm going to talk about my best friend Laura. Last year, I met Laura on the first day of school, when she sat beside me in class, and she is my best friend now. Laura is a funny girl and very nice. She always helps her friends and she has helped me so much. Laura always listens to me and she gives me good advice when I need her help. I think that Laura is a very pretty girl and she could have many relationships but she is an intelligent girl and she has decided that she doesn't want a boyfriend. Laura wants to be with her friends and to be very happy, and I agree. Laura Furest is a very good friend and I'm happy to be her friend.

World of Warcraft

By: Pedro Ríos, 1BTO C
I'll talk about my favourite computer game which is World of Warcraft. It is a role playing game to go level up a character you have chosen. There are different kinds of characters like mage, priest, rogue, warlock, paladin, shaman, death knight and hunter. I chose warlock. You can play in different ways, in the official server but you have to pay monthly or you can also play free on private servers, better known as pirate servers but they don't have the same quality as the official one. I recommend this game to all young people to have a good time because it is an extremely fun game and you can interact with people around all the world and fight against them. Give a good use of your computer.

The best day of my life

By: Bea López, 1BTO B
I've got a lot of good days in my life, but the best day for me was the day of my birthday. Why?
Because it was amazing.
In the morning I went to the gym with my friend Paloma, and she didn't say : "Happy birthday!".
It was very strange!
When we went to my home, there were a lot of ballons. I didn't understand anything.
I saw a beautiful video about my life with my friends, I cried a lot.
Then, my mum cooked a big cake.
In the afternoon my sister had a surprise for me, my friend Maria, from Seville, was here!
At night, I went with my family to a restaurant, and then I went with my friends to the cinema.
There, they gave me a big present. It was so beautiful.
This day for me was incredible because I was with everybody that I love, my family, my friends...
I took a lot of photos to remember my birthday.
When I see the photos, I smile.

PLAYMOBIL

By; Gonzalo de Ory, 3ESO C
I'm sure that you were young you played with playmobil. Playmobil are one of the most famous toys of the world. They are little toys like humans. They haven't got details, for example, in the face they only have got two little eyes and a smile. The "father of the playmobil" was Hans Beck. He was working designing planes when his manager asked him to develop toys for children. The design was like children's drawings (large head, big smile, without a nose). The toy had the perfect height for children.
In 1974 the toy was shown for the 1st time. The people bought them a lot. In 1975, the toy began to be sold in all the world.
Today, there are a lot of types of playmobil, scenes a zoo, airport, hospital, farm...and more.

Communism

By: Pablo González, 1BTO C

It all started with the discontent of the workers, because employers "stole" capital gain.

The next step was about the clash of classes in capitalist society. The history of humanity is the history of the class struggle. The proletariat defeated the bourgeoisie to eliminate private company.

The revolution happened because it was impossible to get the objetives with pacifist ways. The Worker´s Party stablished the dictatorship of the proletariat, creating a just and free society without any economic explotation or political oppression, a society which develops new mode of production without private company.

Without social inequality and social differences, it will disolve the social classes and state. So, the society would be a communism society, a free society, without classes adn a oppressive state.

In my opinion, I think that communism would be the solution to create a more just society. If everybody could act without avarice, I am sure we would be happier.

DEEP PURPLE

By: Victoria Dos Santos, 3ESO C
Deep Purple was formed in 1968. It was a very important heavy metal and hard rock band. The components are Lan Guillan; the singer, Jon Lord; the organist, Lan Paice on the drums, Roger Blover the bassist and my dear Blackmore the guitarist. I love Deep Purple but I’m only going to talk about Blackmore He is one of my favorite guitarists. He invented the taping technique. He wanted to perform in concerts but he couldn’t because he had a degenerative disease. It’s very sad that a star like him can’t play the guitar for things like this but we’ll always have the memories about him.

LEARNING ENGLISH

BY: ISABEL NOGUÉS (SAFA STUDENTS' MOTHER)
Nowadays, it is very important that you can speak other language besides your mother tongue. In my opinion, English is the best of all, because it is spoken by a lot of people in other countries. But, how can we learn this language?
In Spain, we take English classes at Primary School and at Secondary School, but when we finish the last course, it is strange that we can speak English. For example, when I was young, I studied English for at least eight years. But, in spite of studying a lot of hours, I can’t speak English now.
Why does it happen? I think that the method that my teacher used to teach us was not right, we only studied grammar and vocabulary and we never practised speaking, we never listened to a real conversation with ‘cassette’ (when I studied there were not CDs) and we never saw a film in English. Now, I feel: what a pity! If I had practised speaking more, I could have spoken English almost perfectly now. However, I have to study this language again.
Fortunately, things are changing. Now, there are some English teachers that compel their students to speak, to read and to write in English. They offer them a lot of means so that they can learn English properly. So, I am going to let me give an advice to students that visit this web: pay attention to your teacher and take advantage of all means that he offers to you, so when you are adult you will not have to study English again, like I have to do it now.

Isabel is a maths teacher in a secondary school in La Línea (Cádiz). She is very interesting in improving her English, so she started attending the language school there. When she was a teenager, she was a student of San Luis Gonzaga. At present, her two children are studyin here, one is in 4th ESO and the other is in 5th Primary.
