Some advice to improve your English

Hey guys!

I want to tell you little things you can do to improve your English.

One of the things is watching TV shows or movies in English with subtitles in Spanish. This is so great because you can hear the pronunciation of the words in English, and you can hear the real voice of the actors. This is cool, because sometimes the actors have really fun voices or when they say certain expressios, their voices change completly, and you can hear how do you say this expression. You can see this on the page: In this page there are many TV shows in English with subtitles, and you can see the episodes before they are emited in Spain.

Another of the things is reading a fan fics (stories written for ordinary people) of you favourite TV show, movie, book or others. I know that surely you don't like reading, but you can read about the things you want, so maybe you can enjoy reading a fan fics. In this page:, you can read about many things.

In this page there are incredible writers and amazing stories. The stories are of different genre. You can read about love, humor, adventure, drama and other genres.

With the fan fics you can learn much about American or English expressions. You can learn many new words.

Well guys, I hope my post is usefull for you to improve your English.



Last summer I went to a concert in Lyon, France with some friends and it was exciting because it was the first time I had been to reggae concert.

The first thing Idid was checking the tickets with my friends, the tickets were very expensive because it was a small concert. I've always liked reggae music but I had never been to a reggae concert in French! The field was very crowded and the feeling was absolutely amazing because all people were screaming " Mr Lezard ", the name of the singer. Afterwards, Mr Lezard began to sing the best songs from his new CD and we began to dance.

After the concert, we had dinner with some teenages we met in the concert.

Definitely, I'll never regret to have been to the concert and I wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

It was impressive!

My passionate holiday in the Canary Island

Last year I went to the Canary Islands with my friend and my family. When we arrived the place was very nice and very quiet. We rented a beach cottage winged with breathtalking views.
It was supposed to be a relaxing vacation but then it got a bit complicate. One of my friends became ill and we had to take him to the hospital. He had high temperature and a bad cough. He spent two days and then was discharged. After three days, we could spend the holidays better.
The weather was great, very sunny, very hot and one day we had a bit of wind, but very little.
One day, suddenly, while we were eating on a deck it started to rain a lot. Everyone ran out to get in a dry place, and we got into a museum that was free of course, where they had many paintings ans sculptures. It was an exiting place. When it stopped we went for a walk arround.
The last day we went to see an exhibition of animals after eating at the heart of the city.
It was pretty buy they seemed angry animals. Then, we cought a plane and went home.
They were very cool holidays an experience I had never lived. I would repeat without hesitation.
The next vacation, it has to be the same or better.

One of my best friends is called Rosy and she is seventeen years old. She is tall and has a slim body. She has got long,wavy brown hair and her eyes are the same colour. She used to wear glasses but now wear contact lenses. Rosy usually wears sporty clothes and jeans.

Rosy is a very generous and friendly person. She is my best friend because she always listens to me when I have problems and she advices me. We have common interests, for example to study, the films, music and dance. We go to the same college and we met four years ago.

I think she is a very important person in my life because there are few people like her. All in all for me she is a good person and a good friend.


One of my interests is dancing. I like it because when I dance I disconnect for a few minutes. I have practiced since I was little but this year I gave up because I started working and I also study, and I have not got time. But usually when I'm alone at home I play music and dance.

Another of my interests is learning lenguagues. I like it because it is very useful and interesting. So I go to an English academy on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon to learn.

I have got lots of different interests and all are useful and fun.

Sheila is very kind and friendly. She's talkatve and sometimes a bit lazy. She's one of the most cheerful people I've ever seen, for example if she hears something funny, she starts to laugh and she makes people laugh because she can't stop.

Althought Sheila and I don't see ourselves very often, we still get on really well, we talk on the internet. All and all, I think she's charming.

The women's race for the 14 eight-thousanders

Most of the articles in the Vilaweb newspaper are in Catalan but every week or two there is an article in English.

I've just seen that last week they published an article about 4 extraordinary women. They are trying to reach the 14 highest summits in the world. No woman has done that yet. One of them is Spanish: Edurne Pasaban. I remember reading an article about her in La Vanguardia Magazine some time ago.

I admire their willpower and stamina. I love trekking, but climbing an eight-thousand is another story!! I would love to experience such an adventure. I think it is also a journey of self-discovery, it is not only physically challenging, but also mentally challenging. Anyway, I don't think I'm fit enough.

Would you like to climb one of the 14 eight-thousanders?
