Hi, guys. Last week I bought a new book that talks about  Britain's expressions which people often use to talk in many different situations in their lives , as situations where you go to a party, or you are angry, so ... I hope you enjoy these expressions and with the new vocabulary.

I'm going to start with some expressions which British people usually use. Those expressions are related with the fruit.

-THE APPLE OF MY EYE (La niña de mis ojos)

-THE APPLE NEVER FALLS FAR FROM THE TREE (De tal palo tal astilla)

-TO GO BANANAS (Volverse loco)

On the other hand, if you want conquer someone you should try with those expressions:

-YOU’RE GORGEOUS! (¡Estás preciosa!)
-YOU’VE GOT A KILLER BODY (Tienes un cuerpo de infarto)
-YOU’RE BEYOND PERFECT (Eres más que perfecta)
-YOU’RE THE CUTEST PERSON I KNOW (Eres la persona más encantadora que conozco)

But, If you didn’t get the conquest, you should be more sophisticated as the British and say:

YOU MUST BE TIRED BECAUSE YOU’VE BEEN RUNNING THROUGH MY MIND ALL DAY (Debes de estar cansado/a porque llevas todo el día dando vueltas en mi cabeza)


YOUR DAD MUST BE A THIEF BECAUSE HE STOLE THE STARS AND PUT THEM IN YOUR EYES (Tu padre tiene que ser ladrón, porque robó las estrellas y las puso en tus ojos)

All in all, I will be grateful if you put some comments about your opinion in relation with the expressions and if you liked .

If you want that I put more amazing expressions, you should say me in the comments .


Advantages and disadvantages of being famous: "What does it cost to become famous?"

People probably agree with the review that says that famous people's life is perfect. But, how much truth is there in this affirmation? We don’t live together with them, so we can’t affirm or deny
anything. Surely, they must have the same or more amount of problems and the same happens with the positive aspects. But, we can disagree with that.

On the one hand, famous people can earn much money, so it’s true that money helps to improve our life quality. They can waste that money in expensive modern clothes, jewels and cars. What’s more, they can enjoy the popularity and appear frequently on magazines and newspaper. In addition, they receive gentle treatment by everybody.

On the other hand, famous people can't enjoy privacy anywhere because the reporters and "paparazzis" follow them all time. The most important aspect is that they can be millionaires but they aren ́t really happy because they can't get things that money can't buy, as real friendship and uninterested love.

All in all, I believe that the advantages of being famous are more beneficial compared with the disadvantages. In my opinion, it’s true that money can’t get the most important things in this life

as clear love or honest friendship, but it’s true also that money can help in many aspects like poverty.

I choose this topic because "internet" it is our daily living. Nowadays we could not live without internet. Everything in excess is bad- it is said there, also internet.
is it true  that the internet ir more googd than bad?
in the first place, internet is a tool more than necessary for us this tool con be in touch whith anyone , without importace of the place or the day.
moreover, ir allows us to find the information we want at the right time, besides internet is a great source of work and information. On the of the hand, there are important inconvenients to consider, we get isolated from the social world surfing the internet can be a waste of time in hich you can do more productive things. The most important disadvantge of internet is that you can be fooled if you are not careful

In conclusion, internet is one of the most important tools todays, you decide if you use fot better or worse.

A holiday abroad or at home (in Spain)

In the holiday periods, people think about travellimg to another country or in own country.

Many people prefer to travel to another country. But there are many people travelling in their own country. If you travel to another country we can learn new cultures and languages. For example you travel to China, you can learn new language and a new culture. Or for example London there is a lot of culture, traditionals and museums with very important old paintings or statues.

And another thing is that if you travel to your own country it is good because you can learn more about your culture and language or history.

So in my conclusion, for me it is better to travel another country because it's very important to know new cultures and languages!

Resultat d'imatges de a holiday abroad

A holiday abroad or at home(in Spain)

If you have enought saved money to make the journey to another country then you can make one trip a year and travel abroad if you do not have enought money you can spend your holiday in Spain.

The benefits of traveling abroad is that you can meet more people, look at the views and relax. Also a good holiday with friends or family to visit other countries, to a new world.

Abroad experience another country is also the outside word have more knowledge and understanding.

Advantages and disadvantages of being famous

Nowadays, being famous has become a desire for each of us. However, most of us think that famous life is full of happiness and excited moments but we forget to mention all the disadvantages that their life carries.

On the one hand, the celebrities have a wonderful life with much more money than ordinary people, so they never need to worry about it.
In addition, some of them use their wealth to help charities. And obviously, they win a lot of hearts and get a lot of fans who they love and respect their hard work.

On the other hand, they always have to keep a guard because they never know when there can be fans attack, in a positive sense, people surround you for autographs. Nevertheless, I think there is no privacy....every little fight goes to the newspaper. And there are higher chances of depression.

All in all, In my opinion there are as many dis advantages as benefits of being popular. What-s more, being famous is not always fun, there are bad aspects that have to be considered and ofcourse, remember once you've famous you can't turn back, your life change forever.

Individual sports are better tan team sports

Doing an individual sport or team sport is a very interesting topic as much variety of opinions and many people believe doing an individual sport is better than the team sport.

Then now we will look at the positive side of individual sport. A large vote in statement that you can play without shame that this evil what you do and you can rectify the times you went . Also you can be more relaxed alone than with more people. In addition,there are people who exceeded every day better, and for that the people think the individual sport is better.

However there are a lot of people who like learning a sport because for them it motivates more to be in group since they find a support both physical and mental. And as well as that ,above all it helps you to be more sympathetic as you collaborate and also you make friends with the people you play.
Mostly, it makes you essential because they need you.

In short, I think it is better to work together than alone, because personally I'm a person who likes to be together and help my classmates and I think it is being in a team although  there aren't enough people who think like me.

Being famous

All the people have dreamed some time about being famous. Being a famous person has a lot of advantages, but there are some disadvantages too.

On the one hand, some of the advantages are: have a lot of money, people give you more presents, have the ''protection'' of your fans and people recognize you around the world.

On the other hand , it also has disadvantages: your life loses privacy, some people will hate you and someone could be with you only for your money or your fame.

In conclusion, being famous could be the best or the worst thing. By the way, I prefer not to be famous. 
Advantatges and disadvantatges of being on only child.

One modern topic is the parents who have only one child ( son or daughter)

From my point of view, i think that people who only have one child live better because they have less responsability, in addition, their life is easier because the parents only need to give food, buy clothes, pay school only one child.

On the other hand, in my opinion people who have one child it would be better for the parents but the child may be borred in his house because she/he hasn't brothers or sisters to play with him. Nevertheless, i think that it would be worse because all of responsability is for you because if you are an only child your parents may pay more attencion for you.

In conclusion, i think that if you are the only child you have all you want; on the other hand, if you are an only  child you will be lonly in your house because you may feel borred in you house.

Everyone should live in another country at some stage in their life

Some people thing that everyone should spend some stage in their life abroad. However, many people also think that home is the best place where you can be. There are both advantages and disadvantages.

One disadvantage of living in another country at some stage in your life is that you  are far from your family and friends. What's more, maybe you might miss their best moments or the worst ones.

An advantage is the experience of having been in another country learning things that you could had never imagined they could exist. 
In addition, everyone needs changes and doing different things sometimes. Don't you agree?

I strangely agree with living in another country at some stage in our life. I thing that it's a great experience to know and learn about our world.

"PE should be compulsory in school" Discuss.

In all high school you must have a sport subject because It's a good way to work the body and have good health although we only have two hours a week. 

On the one hand, I believe that PE is good for students because they can make friends and speak with them while they are playing sports. In addition, the person who do sport learn how to cooperate with others. 

On the other hand, I feel PE must be optional for "bachillerato" students. So many people don't want to do exercice because there are people who prefer to study science or literature subjects than PE. However, sports help us to relax and get unstressed. 

In conclusion, I don't think that the PE should be compulsory, nevertheless, I propose that PE will be an optional subject for only "Bachillerato" students because I still think the PE must be compulsory for ESO students. 

Advantages and disadvantages of being famous

It is clear that a lot of people want to be famous because thei think that if you are famous, you have a better life. However there are many people who don't like to be famous because they have a lot of disadvantages.

Being famouse has advantages like people meet you, give you presents, you win a lot of money, have a good house, car clother... but all these are material things and you are rhe center of attention but this can good depending on the person.

On th other hand, It also has disadvantages like if you became very famous there would be many people that follow you, they always want to take photos about you, it doesn't matter the moment but I think what's more trouble about being famous are the magazines because they never leave you alone and you can't live in peace.

All in all, I feel that being famous can be good but depending on the person because everyone has their opinion.

Advantages and disadvantages of being an only child

A lot of children think that being an only child and living without brothers and sisters is the best, but not all is good.

On the one hand, it is good because your relatives only pay atention to you, you can have more presents on Chrisams because you are the only child at home, you don't need to share your clothes, your toys or your computer.

On the other hand, it is bad because you can't play with a child like you, if your brother is older than you, he can help you in a lot of things or if your brother is smaller than you, you could help him.

Personally, I think that it is better to have brothers because if you need help or you are bored they can help you and play with you. By the way, I have one sister and one brother but actually I live only with my mother but I love them.
