The Best News Ever

Last summer, I had a great time with my family. One day, while we were eating in a restaurant I heard a catchy tune coming form the TV. Then, I decided to run fast towards the TV but unfornutately, I couln't see the artist's name.
As soon as I got home, I started searching that song online, my mind could still sing that song. Afterwards, thanks to my cousin's help I got it. I was delighted then. The news didn't come until last week, when I got to know that the support singer for the concert where I was going to go, was Mayer Hawthorne! He is the singer of that catchy song. I couldn't belive it!
First, because I have been waiting for this Bruno Mars's concert for so long. And second, because I really liked that new singer and I was soing to see him in live!
 I was very surprised with that breaking news. Then, that day came and I enjoyed every each moment of their performances.

The first time I met Lydia

The first time I met Lydia, I was very nervous because it was the first day of summer course and I didn't know anyone. Then, she came to talk with me.

I had enroled  a course of musical theatre and I arrived at the school a little later than the other girls, so everybody was already talking.

I was very shy, but fortunately, Lydia came and asked my name. And... Yes! Then we realized we had the same name and began to talk animatedly. Thanks to her, I could integrate to the group more quiclky because she knew the other girls of other courses.

It was a time I'll never forget! In this course I met amazing people, specially Lydia who I keep in touch even though we're living far away.

Description of a person


Her name is Susana, I met her in school when we were studying first of primary education .
At first we were not friends, and over time we got a really good communication.
And now we are best friends.
She is the same age an me.
We do everything together, for exemple: go shopping, eat together, sleep together ...
And the most important thing is that she understeands me, and she thinks the same an me.


The first time I went to Port Aventura was in Halloween and I was afraid because I was a child. At the end of the day I found it funny.
I explained this experience to my friends and they were sorprised and they told me that they wanted to come with my family.
Sincé the first time that I went to Port Aventura I have been brave and I'd like to repeat this day with my family and friends.
When we came back after Port Aventura we stopped in a bar because we had run out of petrol and we put more.

The time we first met

The first time I met my boyfriend I couldn't imagine he would become someone so important for me.
It was a winter night and it had rained. I was walking home alone when someone hit me and stole my bag. It was a terrible shock.
At first, I started shouting, but suddenly I run through the street to catch the thief. Fortunately, a teen boy stopped him and he could take the bag away from him.
The thief, who had gone running, fell down because the street was wet, and he lost consciousness. Incredibly, the police saw the situation and they could catch the thief, who was very embarrassed.
After that, I invited the teen boy to eat out and before we realized, we had already fallen in love.

My best friend and relative.

Roban is my relative and my best friend, too. We're both seventeen and he lives in Spain, but unfortunately he lives in another city. I don't see him very often!
He often wears fashionable clothes and he looks very handsome. He's very good and interested in Maths. He always respects to peoples. He's quite shy for make friends, but he's an interesting person. We both spend a lot of time every month. And we do a lot of activities. His favourite sport is football and he really loves it.
Now we're living hundreds of kilometres apart right now. He's very close to me and he's my best friend.

An important person

Marina and Paula are my twin cousins, and two of my close friends, too. We're sixteen, and we've got a lot in common.Some people even say we look sisters for our personality!

They live in Tiana (near my city), but unfortunately for me next year they will go to live in the USA to study 2nd of baccalaureate.

Marina and Paula are good-looking and always wear fashionable clothes. But i think that the best thing about them is their character. Like me, they are very crazy ad like to help others. Actually, they always listen to m and support me in all the good and bad moments.

We've been together since we were born and i know that although next year we will live thousands of kilometres apart, we will continue to be as friendly as before.

My Cousin

My Cousin
I admire my cousin, she lives in Pakistan. She's not very beautiful and not a rich person, but she is a hardworking girl, sensitive, helper, cares about others, etc...
She was in 3rd of secondary education when her parents had an accident. Her older brother was in Spain without papers and her older sister was married. Then she took the decition to leave her studies, help her parents and take care of her little sister and a brother.
Her sister studied and after 4 years became a teacher. Then my cousin started again her studies at home by her little sister.
These days she is doing her exams. I hope that she will pass her exams!!

My Best Friend

He is my cousin, and my best friend, too. He is turning five next week. He is younger than me but he knows very well how to cheer me up when I'm not fine.
He usually wears informal clothes and comfortable shoes, he would look very cute in every kind of clothes. He is the tallest person in his class, he is very sociable but sometimes gets shy with elderly people. We both wear glasses and we both love eating chocolate.
In spite of our age difference, we share a lot of our free time. We usually go to the park to play football, other times we stay at home drawning or playing tablegames. He loves cars, so next week we'll give him as a present a big toy car.
I could never imagine being a part from him. He is my soulmate! We both love each other. I'm very greatful to god to give such a cute cousin,
