A REVIEW



Resultado de imagen de thirteen reasons whyMy favourite programme is called "13 reasons why". It is a popular drama series which is shown on Netflix. It is based I the known novel of the same name written by Jay Asher.

The main characters are Hannah Baker (Katherine Lagnford) and Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette). What’s more, it is produced by Selena Gómez. The plot is touching.  The story is about a young called Clay, who received a mystery box with thirteen cassettes. The cassettes were recorded by Hannah, a school partner who had killed herself two weeks before; the thirteen reasons for which she decided to do it are recorded in them. Clay is really touched because he was in love with her. Each recording is about one person and Clay has to listen to all of them to learn if he was guilty or not.


All in all, I’d recommend this programme because it shows teenager’s real life and the problems they have to face. As well, the message that sends us is very important, stopping bullying, sexual abuse and depression.

What is a CV?



To begin with, when we talk about CV we refer to the term Curriculum Vitae. It can be literally translated as course of life. It is a summary of your career history that is often the first phase in getting yourself noticed by potential employers. A recruiter will typically take just five to seven seconds to read your CV, so that it must say hire me! Here are some pieces of useful advice: be impeccable with your spelling and grammar, make sure your CV is both digital and print-out, focus on using facts to describe what you do, be selective, use positive active verbs...


On the contrary, there is a difficult question. Is one career enough nowadays? Actually, I have no idea, but I think that it would be better in the future. Getting a career it is a difficult task, so two careers must be even harder. It is a good option if you want to learn new skills and this will bring us more employment opportunities.

All in all, I think that we should do our CV the best as possible because it reflects all our professional life and our future job depends on how attractive it would be. Personally, I reckon that just one career is enough to be able to get a good job. As well, we don’t have to forget the importance of having a good level of a foreign language.




Staying alive...forty years later!




For a start, I am going to talk about Bee Gees. Bee Gees was an English boy band which was formed in Australia in 1958 by the bothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb. The trio was especially successful for the album Saturday Night Fever, called the same as the film. This album was extremely famous. As well, the band was one of the most popular for fifty years, selling more than 120 millions of copies. The group retired after the death of two members. In 2012 with the death of Robin and the death of Maurice in 2003.

Some of them are To Love Somebody, Staying Alive, Night Fever, Tragedy, How deep is your love… Music stars like John Legend, Ed Sheeran, Andra Day, Celine Dion and other pop, R&B, rock and country played homage to the Bee Gees and the group’s blockbuster 1977 soundtrack album Saturday Night Fever in an all-star Grammy Awards. Actually, Staying Alive spent 24 weeks atop the Billboard sales chart in 1977-78.


In my opinion, I think that the Bee Gees was an iconic band who defined a generation. What’s more, the song Saturday Night Fever soundtrack is an emblem of 1970s pop culture. In just a word, DISCO STILL LIVES.

Papparazzi, a fair job?



Resultado de imagen de bella hadid flips off paparazzi
To begin with, paparazzo is a freelance photographer who takes candid pictures of celebrities for publication. Etymologically, this word comes from Italian and its plural form is paparazzi. Experts have described the behaviour of paparazzi as synonymous with stalking. Some public figures and celebrities have expressed concern at the extent to which paparazzi go to invade their personal space, like the model Bella Hadid who flipped the bird to them while walking in New York City.

One the one hand, paparazzo is thought to be a real pain in the neck. They are always taking photos of famous without their permission. If one of them took me a photo and I didn’t know it, I would be so angry, because I think nobody has the right to sell your photos to win some money. On the contrary, working as paparazzi has to be a difficult task, because you have to know all about famous, like where they go, what they like doing… and even invade their lifestyle. The most important task is taking photos discreetly and spending time among a lot of people not standing out.

On the other hand, Oprah Winfrey is an American TV presenter and actress. According to Forbes, she is the wealthiest woman in the 20th century. One of her most famous TV shows is Oprah Winfrey Show, which is seen by millions of people. I saw her the first time in a KUWTK episode, in which she had to interview all the Kardashian family. Later, I saw her in The Butler, a film by Lee Daniels, in which she and Forest Whitaker starred in. Thanks to a photograph, which was taken by a paparazzo, we know that she has six toes.


In my opinion, I think that working like paparazzi is a normal job, but they have to respect people’s privacy, but without them we couldn’t read gossip magazines and it would be such a pity.

EVERYONE SHOULD LEARN ENGLISH



I am going to write about the importance of learning a foreign language at school. Currently, everyone in Spain studies English both in primary and secondary school, although more and more French is studied. This phenomenon happened two years ago, when French had to be studied in primary school. Some people think that languages should be optional. There are several points to considerer.

On the one hand, being able to speak English brings us a lot of opportunities. For example, it is easier to get a job and to move to a foreign country, where there are better employment opportunities. However, it is not only English which is an important language, but also millions of people around the world speak Spanish. In a country like USA, 20% of population can speak Spanish.
On the other hand, it is said that studying English takes a lot of time and effort and I have to say it is true, but unless you study it, you won’t be able to understand English music. Furthermore, you can make friends with people from other countries. What’s more, you can go on holiday to English-speaking countries.

To sum up, there are more advantages than disadvantages to learn this incredible language, although I think that everyone has to choose if they want or not. In general, it is important to speak a foreign language, especially to learn about other cultures.

Boot camps, what are they?




To start with, I’m going to define what boot camps are. A boot camp is a disciplinary or programme in which young offenders are forced to participate in a rigidly structured routine. Actually, there are people who are not specific offenders, they are just rude teenagers.

On the one hand, they are a good idea to re-educate young people. Some desperate parents send their children to the camp when they get into trouble, as well when they have a bad behaviour. It’s a good solution to guide teenagers, make them feel like different people and help them to change their attitude to life. This type of camps is too strict and cruel, though. 



On the other hand, I think that parents have the responsibility of guiding their children from their early childhood. They have to educate them and be the best example for them. If you do things well, I’m pretty sure that your children will do things the same as you. It is said that like father like son.





All in all, if I was sent to a boot camp, I would feel very angry and miserable. I wouldn’t like that camp guards told me to give them all my personal possession. What’s more, I wouldn’t like the idea of being far from my family. At the moment, I think that my parents wouldn’t send me to one, because I’m a well-educated girl and a good student.

What is about the Chinese New Year?



To begin with, it is true that so many Chinese people travelled three weeks ago because they were heading home for the Chinese New Year. Actually, this is the year of the Rooster.

First of all, the Chinese New Year, which is also known as the Spring Festival, is one of the biggest celebrations in the world. As well, it is marked by the lunisolar Chinese calendar, so the date changes from year to year. It usually takes place the day before of the New Year and continues until the 15th day. Each year is characterised by one of the twelve animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac. This year it is the Year of the Rooster, the 10th animal in the cycle. By the way, my Chinese zodiac is the Dragon and it means luck, flexibility, eccentricity and imagination among other things.

On the contrary, this celebration also takes place in London, which is one of the biggest outside Asia. Thousands of people go to London’s Chinatown, where a parade traditionally takes place to celebrate it.


Finally, I think that the Chinese New Year is such a great and beautiful festival. One of my friends bought an article in internet that came from China and the seller replied her politely that they were celebrating the New Year so he would send the goods later.
