HOW DOES TV INFLUENCE OUR LIFE?

BY DANIEL VÁZQUEZ, #BTO2C
Nowadays, most people spend a lot of time watching TV in their free time, because it’s an easy way to have fun. But is the TV a positive or a negative thing?

From my point of view, if we watch a lot of TV, we lose our creativity, because we keep our mind thinking on what we are watching on TV, instead of reading a book, listening to music, talking with other people… which are more productive things for training our brain and for our life in general.
What’s more, TV advertisements influence on what we buy, because some of them are so eye-catching that they make you buy the product, even if you don’t need it.
To sum up, I think that we should educate the young ones so they can use the TV properly, just an hour or a couple of hours a day. If you are watching the TV more than this, think about it because maybe you’re wasting your time.

MOBILE PHONES AT SCHOOL

BY FÁTIMA GRANJA, #BTO2C
Nowadays mobile phones have become part of our of life. We use them for everything, and we could spend hours looking at their screen, but is their use appropriate in every situation, for example at school?

Mobile phones can have great advantages and can be very useful in class. They are a huge source of any type of information. Besides, using some apps instead of the regular books can be an original and different way for students to learn something new.
Apart from that, they make communication between the teacher and the students much easier, because they can share information or documents instantly.

In these days, we can not deny that technology is everywhere, and we have to incorporate it in our daily life, even at school. In conclusion, I think that mobile phones are a good learning tool, and we shouldn’t avoid using them.

LIVING IN A BIG OR SMALL CITY?

BY DANIEL CABEZA, #BTO2C
Nowadays, the only purpose of the cities is getting bigger. If there are more people, it means more money for the local government. From my point of view, this could be a problem for all those citizens.


First of all, the first thing you can do is moving out to a small town, so you won’t have to put up with the massive traffic of the big cities. Even if you don’t have a car, taking the metro or the bus could stress you out.

Secondly, it increases the difficulty to find a job, or even going to any restaurant, which would be full of people, and you would have to wait for hours to get a table.

In conclusion, it is better to live in a small town because there’s no traffic, it is easier to get a job, and you won’t get anxious if you want to eat in any restaurant. It is all calmed and relaxing.

POSTAL CODE

BY MARÍA ARIZA, #BTO2A

People have to make many decisions throughout their lives. However, we can’t choose the most important, from my point of view: where to be born, since it marks our future.

Being born in Africa or in Europe, even though they are next to each other, will suppose completely different ways of living. For instance, African children  are often orphans, because with poor health many women die in childbirth, and life expectancy is also very short. In order to survive, they need to travel kilometers until they find water, which they have to carry home. Another very important issue is the low level of education. Not everyone can afford to go to schools, because it is far from their homes. Therefore, they will not be able to dedicate themselves to what they like. 
However, in developed countries, babies are born in hospitals and the majority live with their families.They have a place to live and to eat; they go to schools; and they can freely decide what they will be in the future.

In conclusion, we live in an unfair world. We should have the same possibilities regardless of where we are born, so we must all fight to get it.
