First off all I must say thanks to the teacher for this amazing trip... We enjoyed everything!!!
The play was great and funny. I think Appy was the the funiest character. Cleopatra wasn´t what I expected. I thought that she was the most beautiful of the play , but she wasn´t. In spite of this I admired how she could sing all this songs... I liked her lyrics.
I can´t forget mention Beck . He was gorgeus! Mavi and Grachu looked him all the time.
The rest of trip was excelent too...

A mum like dad

Nowadays I have often wondered if women should get equal pay for doing the same work as men.

Now I´m conviced that both gender should get the same pay, because we have the same rights.Therefore they will admit female effort; be mother is a unique experiencie and It isn´t so easy. Moreover if women work outside the house is all a challenge for them.

It seems to me that the world has changed last years. There are a lot of advances in different topics and is neccesary that we would be able to accept these changes. However people don´t make criticism about men´s pays due to the dominant gender was male. The history ratifies that, but now we may also see that women can experiment a lot of works. What´s more I think that women are better than men in some works such as administration and work office.For example if my dad was sitting eight hours in a desk, He will be crazy but my mum can tolerate this.

In short I see that women work the same hours as men and I don´t believe that the bussineses won´t be able to understand the women rolls. We have the same rights!

With different points of view we can communicate new ideas so we will improve our relationships.

Ricardo Arjona was born in Joconotenango, Guatemala, in January 19th, 1964. He´s a famous singer-songwriter. By the age of nine, he started to play guitar and wrote his firsts songs.
At the age of twenty one, Ricardo released his first album, "Déjame decir que no" in the city of Guatemala. However, he became famous when his second record was recorded, "Jesús: verbo no sustantivo", and millons of copies of this album appeared in the shops.
Something very important which happened his life was that his name appeared in the library where he was studying, and also in a street in Jocotenango.
Ricardo Arjona participated in "Alcanzar una estrella", a series on tv programe. In this programe he had the opportunity to show people listen his songs, "La mujer que no soñé jamás", "El taxista", among others.
In 2006 and 2007, he won two Grammies and one Grammy Latino, for his record "Adentro".
In my opinion is a really good singer-songwriter. Many people like the lyrics of his songs, especially women. His most successful hits are: "La nena", "El problema", "Santo pecado" and "Duele verte".

Hello! I hate to make profiles but I have to do it, because the teacher is angry!!!
My name´s Sofía Turino and I´m seventeen... I live in San Vicente, Santa Fe.
I don´t like any subjectct of the school, I only like Law, Culture and Economics because we discuss reality situations of life... Also P.E. only when we play volleyball or handball.
At the weekends I like to be with my friends and go out... I love going to "Daser Junior" on Saturday, it´s very funny...
I like very very very much animals... but I only have two Dálmatas Dog: "Lola" y "Arón"; and I have a tortoise "Dora", I had had another "Anita" but it had lost, I´m really sad because of that... When I was younger I had fishes, but they´d died. My favourites animal are dolphins and zebras.
In my free time I listen to music (good music), I read or watch Tv; my favourite program is "Duro de Domar", I see it always at 19 when I arrive home, because I go out of the school at that hour.
I think I said enough, I hope you like it teacher.

The ACI is a comfortable and quite modern building.
It´s situated on the corner of Liniers and Buenos Aires streets and It´s started to work in 1973 in Asociacion Presidente Sarmiento.
Then It moved to family´s houses. Finally the ACI has been situated in this building since 1885.
The walls of the building are made of smooth white stones.In addition on one of the front entrance leads to a big hall which connects to the library.Here, there is a boockcase whit material for teaches and students.Next to It there is a desk where the Director or teachers welcome parents as well as students.Moreover the hall sometimes becomes a workshop, a classroom,a meeting room and a place where students act.On the left of this hall there are two classrooms.In the first one little children learn English playing and singing songs with different teachers.The other room is usually for teenagers and adults.It has got a tv, headphones and a lot of videos and films.Both classrooms are painted yellow and they are crowded with pictures, maps and some boockshelves.At the back there is a computer room where students can practise in different webs and visit the ACI blog.
As we see It, this institute is a small building.However,It has got many facilities.Personally speaking we think the English languaje is necesary for our future...
