Write about a book, movie, TV series... that you have enjoyed

Resultado de imagen de modern family

In this composition I am going to write about a TV series that I have enjoyed. The TV series is called Modern Family. Actually, it is a sitcom that was released in 2009 and has nine seasons. The running time is about 20 or 23 minutes. It is about the lives of Jay Pritchett and his whole family, all of whom live in LA.

On the one hand, the series is apparently about current modern families (nuclear, step- and same sex). It is presented in documentary style with the fictional characters frequently talking directly into the camera. In addition, Modern Family was acclaimed by critics throughout its first few seasons. The show won a total of 22 Emmy Awards.

On the other hand, my favourite character is Alex Dunphy (Ariel Winter). She is a smart girl who goes to the university. She loves studying and reading books. As well, she is always arguing with her elder sister Haley and his younger brother Luke. I also love Gloria’s character starred by Sofia Vergara. She is a passionate Colombian mother who is always dressed up. She is so good-looking.

Summing up, I love watching Modern Family. It is because I watch it with all my family so that it is a good idea to spend a good time with them. Inevitably my sister and I can spend hours and hours watching it and never get tired. How obsessed we are!

What types of films do you prefer? Explain

With regard to the types of films I like, I prefer the romantic and action ones. Traditionally, everybody has a favourite film that they watch twice or more. Furthermore, people usually watch films because of the actors that appear in them. Indeed, my favourite actor is Ryan Gosling.

First, the romantic film that I prefer is The Notebook, whose characters are Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. The film tells a fantastic love story. Additionally, I also love Pride and Prejudice, Blue Valentine and 10 things I hate about you, among others. Last, but not least, I really enjoy watching Public Enemies, which tells about the search of the famous American robber John Dillinger starring Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Marion Cotillard.

Furthermore, my favourite action films are those about super heroes, in other words, I love the films about Marvel characters as Thor, Captain America, Deadpool, Wander Woman, Batman and also Black Panther. The one I love the most in Batman film is the Joker starring Heath Ledger. How fantastic he is! As a matter of fact, I love Black Panther soundtrack, which is interpreted by the rapper Kendrick Lamar, joined by other singers like The Weeknd, SZA, and Travis Scott…

In brief, I usually enjoy almost every film that I watch. By the way, I still remember the first time that I went to the cinema. I went with my cousin and we watched a romantic film. We spent such a good time together. In contrast, my sister doesn’t love watching films. How boring she is! She has neither a favourite actor nor actress. She doesn’t even know the name of the great classic films.

A year ago, I travelled to Punta Cana, which is situated in the Dominican Republic. It was a family trip to celebrate my sister Diana’s engagement. Her fiancé Gonzalo is a wealthy man, so he was the one who organised it. We spent a whole week there. It was the best time of our lives.

It was late when we arrived, but all looked fantastic, especially outside the resort. There was a starry and sparkly sky. The next day, we went on a little excursion to the next village. There, I met a good-looking guy, who I spent a lot of time with. What I loved the most was doing scuba diving. It was my very first time. How excited I was! The next evening Gonzalo invited all the family and also the good-looking guy to a special dinner. We had already eaten and shortly after he knelt to give Diana a ring. Romantic stuff!

Afterwards, we took a plane to do sky diving. It was so exciting! The two days left, we were in a yacht with a great amount of champagne. I was singing and dancing all day long. Besides, we saw a lot of dolphins and a wide range of fish. By the way, the good-looking guy asked me out. For our date, we arranged to meet at an exotic restaurant. I wore a little black dress and my favourite heels. We spent such a good time together. He made me laugh a lot. He also danced amazingly.

At the end of the week, we all had to go home because of our jobs. Before leaving, I asked my guy for his phone number and he gave it to me. Later, I sent him a message, but he didn’t reply. I tried calling him the next day but I realized that he had given me the wrong number. Luckily, he found me in Facebook and since then we have been in touch. This summer, I am going to return.

Do you prefer watching films, videos, series or reading books? Explain why

To introduce the topic, I am going to answer this question. Everybody knows that society is divided in two sides: the one with people who love watching films, videos or series, and the others who are really fond of books. In my case, I prefer reading books.

Firstly, reading books is more interesting than watching TV. It is because you can imagine the characters and the space. Also, you can read wherever you want. Besides, the more you read, the better grammar, orthography and vocabulary you have. I usually read four or five books a month. I am really into novels.

Nevertheless, there are some people who consider that watching films, videos and series is more comfortable than reading books. They say that they don’t have to guess some information about the characters, the space or the time because they know it thanks to the images. Furthermore, they love special effects and what they love the most are the soundtracks. By the way, I am obsessed with the Black Panther’s soundtrack called Pray for me, released by Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd.

In summary, I prefer reading books, although I watch some films and series too. As far as I am concerned, I think that in both cases, we always have something to learn; it could be called culture. I consider that we should do both things to find a balance and so we can talk with any person about no matter what.

Bitcoins, real currency or just a fake?

Resultado de imagen de bitcoins
Nowadays it is a well-known fact that Bitcoins are growing in popularity and some are even calling them the future of money. But how much do we know about them? To begin with, Bitcoin is a digital crypto-currency. Actually, Bitcoin is just like any other currency except for two things. Firstly, it is not a currency. Therefore we can’t use it to pay taxes or settle debts because it is minted neither by governments nor banks.

Next, as it is a digital currency, it just exists online. As I see it, this is a great advantage as you don’t have to buy a Louis Vuitton or a Prada to bring your money. As well, it is the best option for those who love buying things online.

This is when you use your computer to run calculations which verify other Bitcoin transactions. As reward for doing this job, you earn some of them. Indeed, Bitcoins value has recently gone up quite a lot and this has caused a lot of interest. By the way, they were first created in 2009.

In short, the Euro is a legal currency within almost every country in the European Union, except in the UK and some other ones. I think that having the same currency is better for us, especially for those who love travelling without exchanging money. In Spain the legal tender is the Euro. Moreover, the legal one before was the Peseta.

Describe your favourite festivities of the year and explain why you like them

To begin with, I am going to write about some of my favourite festivities of the year. I am pretty sure that everybody loves Christmas, 4th July if you live in the USA or 14th July if you live in France, but what is about local festivities? Here are those that I prefer.

One of the most famous festivities is St John’s Eve. In this festival you will see neither costumes nor religious parades, but it’s rather a pagan celebration of the summer equinox. It is celebrated on 24th June.  People go to the beach bringing food and drinks to spend all the night. Then, they light bonfires to burn that they don’t want or need any more and the celebration lasts until sunrise.

However, I am very fond of a local festivity which is a religious celebration called San Antonio. It is celebrated on 13th June in honour of the Patron Saint of my village, Lobres. This day a procession takes place to which all the locals go wearing their best costumes. Then they go the town square to drink, dance and listen to music.

In conclusion, I would say that we all love festivities because we can spend good time with family and friends both dancing and eating. As well, I think that our birthday is also an opportunity to organise a great party and invite all our friends to spend the day together.

Christmas shoppings

Resultado de imagen de christmas shopping
Who doesn’t love getting Christmas presents? Christmas is the season in which we give and get more presents. This is because we love giving them to others as sign of affection or friendship. But this can affect our budget, for this time, so we have to know how to spend our money properly.

A lot of people love buying ornaments for their home to make it cosier; as well there are others who buy too much food for people who may visit them during these days. But we usually spend almost all of our money buying presents for our family, friends or even ourselves.

Furthermore, we can make presents to others on Christmas Eve, the Three Wise Men’s eve or simply making the Invisible Friend game. The things that are given the most are perfume, a pair of shocks, bracelets or some chocolates. What happens when we have no time to buy them? Well, it is easy; the best option is buying them online, for example in Amazon.

All in all, I can’t deny that I love getting presents without minding the season. My favourite presents are jewellery, make-up and clothes. As well, I like receiving some good books to read. This year, my perfect present would be a ticket to travel to a little island to relax me with my BBF.
