Patrick Dempsey

Ptrick Dempsey is an american actor. He's a well known celebrity all over the world. He has dark brown hair and wonderful blue eyes. Ptrick Dempsey was born on January 13, 1966, in Lewinston, Main. The youngest of three brothers, his parents raised the children in Buckfield. Patrick, who was daignosed as dyslexic (he has to fully memorize his scripts), attended St. Dominic Regional High School but dropped out before graduating.
He was always interested in entertainment and therefore Patrick studied juggling and entered several competitions. Acting was also natural for him and at the age 15 he was given the role of the rebellious son in a Maine production of "On Golden Pond". Two years later he won a prime role as David, the guy teen, in the Harvey Fierstein play "Torch Song Trilogy", spending several months touring San Francisco with the show. In between he found supplementary gigs dancing and juggling. More opportunities come his way after winning the protagonist role of Neil Simmon's "Brighton Beach Memories" that tourned in 1984.
From that, from an exuberant, somewhat ankward charmer in college comedy films of the late 1980s and early 1990s, he has morphed spectacularly into a dreamy, weavey-haired TV hunk of the new-age millenium and this seductive new image has since spilled off into romantic lead roles back on the large screen as a slightly offbeat, self-effacing Prince Charming type.
After a long collection of hits, Dempsey really nailed the direction he was headed with the medical series "Grey's Anatomy" in 2005, as neurosurgeon Dr. Shepherd, gave distaf audiences the whole heartthrob package.
Patrick is, nowadays, one of the most popular actors around the world.

A biography

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles is an American solo singer, actress and fashion designer. She is a woman who was born in Houston, Texas. She i a one of the best well-known and famous singers of the moment because she is a singer with a great variety of styles. Beyoncé is a woman from head to toe, and for me, the best singer of the moment.

Beyoncé started singing in a band called "Destiny's Child", with two more girls, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. This group was together for about 7 years and when she left, then she started her solo career, in 2003. She released her first album called "Dangerously in Love", which was very successful, winning 5 Grammy Awards. In her third album, she won 6 out 10 Grammy Awards to which she opted, becoming the woman wich most Grammy Awards won in one night. This album was called "I am... Shasha Fierce".
The singer has sold over 50 million albums with the group Destiny's Child and more than 20 million as a solo singer.

From my pont of view, Beyoncé is the most complete singer and she is very hard-working at her passion, that is music. For me, she is the best.

Vladimir Klichko

Vladimir Klichko
Volodymyr Klychko is a Ukrainian heavyweight boxer. Wladimir is the IBF, IBO, WBO and Ring Magazine Champion. He is currently rated as the number three pound for pound boxer in the world by Boxrec. His older brother Vitali Klitschko is the current WBC champion. As for now, Vladimir is historically the longest reigning Heavyweight Champion for the IBF, WBO & IBO Heavyweight Titles of both measurements of defenses and time.
Klitschko was born in Semipalatinsk, Kazakh SSR (now Kazakhstan). In 1985 the family moved to Ukraine. Though a major celebrity in his former adopted home of Germany, he moved with his older brother Vitali to Beverly Hills in 2004. Their father, Volodymyr Rodionovych, was a Soviet Air Force Colonel. Their mother is Nadezhda Ulyanovna.
In the summer of 1996, Klitschko finished Pereyaslav-Khmelnitsky Pedagogical Institute (Ukraine) and was accepted in the postgraduate study program of Kiev University. On 18 January 2001 in a conference hall of Kiev University of physical science and sports, Klitschko presented his doctoral dissertation and was awarded a Ph.D. in Sports Science. Klitschko speaks four languages: Ukrainian, Russian, German and English. Known as "The Steel Hammer," Klitschko first achieved world attention at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. He defeated Paea Wolfgramm to win the Super-Heavyweight gold medal. He is now announced as "Dr. Steel Hammer," a name more in the vein of his brother, Vitali, who goes by "Dr. Ironfist."Since 2005, Klitschko has been the dominant force in the heavyweight division, defeating a majority of the top heavyweights in the rankings. When Klitschko won the IBF title against Chris Byrd there were four separate heavyweight champions. Since then he has unified the IBF and WBO belts and defeated the WBA champion in recess. Following his victory over Ruslan Chagaev, Klitschko was awarded the vacant Ring Magazine Heavyweight Title. He broke Tommy Burns long held record of eight consecutive title defences by knockout.The brothers have been quoted saying that it is only a matter of time until they unify the WBA title belt which is currently held by David Haye. If they achieve this feat, the Klitschko brothers will become the first brothers in heavyweight boxing history to simultaneously hold all of the belts.
Both Klitschko brothers have been involved in charitable activities dedicated to supporting the needs of children around the world. Both brothers have formed their own charities that contribute to children in need in Africa and South America. They won humanitarian awards for their "Fight For Peace" and "Sport for Good" projects in 2002 and 2007. In 2002, the Klitschko brothers announced that they had agreed to work specifically for UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), which supports more than 180 projects in 87 countries.

Interesting website: By Desireé Hernández Ramírez


This site is for anyone who wants to learn, maintain or improve their English. Here you will find a set of resources that will facilitate learning and improving English

Internet is a powerful means of training and dissemination. In fact, there are many pages devoted to education and specifically to learn English, but most of them developed in the language of Shakespeare. Indeed paradoxical that learning English is required prior knowledge. We therefore believe that this site can fill a gap in an important community. The community of people who have Spanish as their mother tongue.

Teachers can also find plenty of supplementary materials for use with students in any area of this website, and specific ideas and resources for teaching languages in the section on 'Teachers'.
