Welcome

I heartly welcome you, students beginning 1st Bachillerato this year.

This is a blog where you will find advice and suggestions to improve your English and information about your class assignements.

I hope you have fun and succeed this year! And remember some advice: “Aim High. Plan Well. Work Hard.”

The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it. “

Michelangelo Buonarroti
1474-1564, Italian Renaissance Painter and Sculptor

    Hi! I have found an interesting topic about that we can debate.
    This is the news:

    Cities cadidates for the Olympic Games in 2016.

    Madrid is between them; the others are Tokio, Rio de Janeiro and Chicago.
    Which do you choose?

    In 1992, the Olimpic Games were celebrated in Barcelona, and now, will the shift be from Madrid?

    If you want that these O.G. are celebrated in Spain, you not forget rest to Madrid (I leave the web you):

      That’s an interesting topic, Alicia!
      I’m not that sure aboout your hunch.
      Madrid didn’t get a good appraisal compared to other Olympic host cities. Let’s see if we get the chance!

    What day, or every how much time does picture change?

  7. Mar says:

    About Madrid 2016…
    I hope that Madrid wins but Chigago with the participation of Obama will be a very hard rival because USA is the greater world-wide power!

    What you think about this piece of news?

  8. Mar says:

    I think we CAN win too and I hope Madrid wins because it has been several years preparing it with more sport pavilions, 22 of approximately 33!

    In Obama’s style: YES, WE CAN!

    I HAVE A HUNCH
