A report

Assignment: The college where you study is organizing a campaign to promote healthy eating. They want to examine how fast food chains attract people to their restaurants.

The aim of this report is to investigate how fast food chains atract people to their restaurants. As a requested I have some data.


For years, fast food chains have tried to draw attention with this 'very tasty fast food, do not wait, do not cook, we give you it very fast'. However, the food that they serve us is not healthy and consequently, we hurt our health.
It is observed that, like every great trade, fast food restaurants are studied with perfection to get the consumer to go many times to the restaurant.

Although, their food may look tasty, but it should be taken into consideration that it is unhealthy, they just want our money and these are their tactics to achieve:
-Their food is advertised on huge billboards.
-They utilize the red color, which is what catches our attention.
-The music and the smell of the restaurant.
-They have captured us, since we were children, with toys (as in Mc donald's).

In conclusion, considering the above points, fast food chains are not interested in our health, just our money. Due to these chains, each year there are more people with diabetes and obese children. For instance, the 21.3% of Spanish children between 6 and 11 years old have abdominal obesity, according to a recent study.
I recommend, to start cooking for yourself, and if you are used to eating lots of fast food, a good idea is to try to make your own burgers.

A report

The aim of this report is to look and explore the page workaway.info and I give my opinion.

This page is perfect to search work while you travel to where you want. For example, if you want  to search work in London, this page looks for you. As a result people can travel and work at the same time. And I believe that is easy to find the information.

Furthermore the people who want to hire you, offer accommodation during your stay in this work. In this page you find all the necessary information for your new work and new house. This means that you make sure you choose well. And I believe that it is easy to find the information


To sum up, I would like to suggest this page. Firstly, I recommend it because you can find a job the work in these difficult times and secondly, because you can travel to another country and you learn the new language.

A report

A report about workaway.info

The aim of this report is to explain how a young person can learn a language and have a great experience abroad.

I've been told that there's a website called workaway.info that has set up to promote the exchange between budget travellers, language learners or culture seekers and families. For instance, there are lots of teenagers who decide to go abroad when they finish high school, precisely the summer before starting University. This is because they have finished their exams and they completely want to improve a language and earn a bit of money.

As a result, this website offers housing in cities of Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania at a good price, so that's a real bargain. And if it weren't enough, it shows some videos about people who have had this oportunity and they give their opinion and recommendations.

To sum up, workaway.info is a really good website to look for the best experience of your life, ensuring the knowledge of a language and a culture that will make you improve your life.

Workaway.info

I've heard a lot about this website: Workaway.info


I suggest that you do some research and write a review about it for others to know what to find and what not to find there. Why don't you pretend you are a journalist and write an article about it?


As usual, remember it is important to organize the information into different paragraphs, for example:

  • What do they do, what's it for?
  • First impressions, is it clear? easy to navigate? 
  • How do they attact people? Mention all the positive things that you like and found interesting.
  • Have you got any recommendations to improve the site?
