ENGLISH

Hello, I’m going to talk about the English subject, or the idiom in general. In this moment I think learn English is very important in many areas of the life. For example I would like to make a travel to different countries and in that situation is very important know that idiom. Other reason is if you want be a complete profesional, is very important know that idiom, you need read articles all time and today the better information is in English. Because these reasons is very important the English, I hope can to learn more and maybe I hope dominate the English good.
When I started my studies at the university I didn’t know nothing about English. My school were very bad in this subject, I had bad teachers. I think my bad English is because I’m from Quellón and the education in that place is more or less, and English is a secondary subject in that place. Today is very important give a good education in the different idioms, specifically English because when you are a child, you learn faster.
At University I did English I, English II, English III and actually I did English IV, really I’m so boring but I think I learned a lot. I think the program in general is good, but there are better teachers, por example, I think my teacher of English IV is very good because she don’t use the English book because she prefer that we practice oral idiom, that is very good for the learning. Also, the use of blogs is very good because you learn to write in English, you learn to express yourself in English through writing.
Today I can speak a little English, but obviously I need more practice. I hope to practice English all time because is easy forget quickly.
Also, today I use English when anyone need  help in streets or in my job, when I read articles and including, when I see movies or series and I don’t have the subtitles.
Finally, I hope approve English IV and I hope practice and learn more English for myself.

Diabetes in childhood


Hello, today I’m going to talk about a new that I read in the link http://www.guardian.co.uk/. Specifically, my choice is a new about the Diabetes and how this problem affects the childhood and the family.  In this new, the mother of Izzi said about the process that they lived around the Diabetes disease. Izzi was 10 years old when she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and her mother say in the article about this disease and how affects all family, included Izzi’s brother with 7 years old.
Really, a child never is ready to confront any disease and maybe, least that, with very much responsibility. I think the children with diabetes need psychological attention because they need understand this problem the better way possible. Is very easy this children feels different about their friends and classmates, maybe they think is very unfair and about this way, they can has depression, a low self-esteem, etc. Because that, is very important the parent to receive psychological attention too, because they must to help their children in this process, also they must to keep calm.  Is important too, the siblings like the Izzi’s brother because is very normal that they think its brother or sister maybe will dead and is job of parents teach about this situation. I think the social environment is very important too, and in that case is job of teachers to educate about this topic in the class.  
Finally, I think very important the psychology in these situations, because it helps to keep mental health many times.

Seven Pounds


Today, I’m going to talk about a movie that I enjoyed very much. I love to see movies in general, I’m seen movies all the time but I have preferences. For example I prefer dramatic movies and sometimes, comedy movies.


The movie “Seven Pounds” is great, I saw this movie in my house with my boyfriend some years ago, maybe two years or three. In this movie you can see the actor Will Smith, a very good actor for me; you can see his talent in “The Persuit of Happyness” too

                                                                                         

“Seven Pounds” is a dramatic movie and the topic is Will Smith like men with one objective: change the life of seven stranger people. This idea to emerge because the protagonist to cause an accident in the past where dead six stranger people and his girlfriend. Since that moment, he decided to help seven strangers, in the limit of to commit suicide for help two ultimate people. Between two people, Emily, his new love.


Really, I enjoy this movie because although is very sad, I enjoy unexpected ends in the movies. For me, is very important the end because I think is boring when a movie has a expect ending. Anyway, I think there are good movies without that, but I prefer movies with that. I hope you enjoy this movie like me.

My political position


Hello, today I’m going to talk about my political position, specifically about the recently municipal elections. In that occasion I didn’t vote because I was to register in other localization, specifically in Quellón (Chiloé) and I didn’t make the change in the time because my father was councilor candidate in Quellón and I was trying to travel in that date and like that I would give my vote to my father. I think is very important to give the personal vote but I don’t think if you don’t vote you can’t give one political opinion. In this moment I’m satisfied with the election in my commune, it’s Santiago, because I think Carolina Tohá is a good leader and maybe she can to make a good job. I don’t have a political system too rigid, even I believe in the people, in the personal opinions and personal positions, I don’t believe in political systems in rigid way. I think the political system in Chile is very important but it is too bad, in my opinion. I think actually there are too much dissatisfied in Chile about the political and politics in general. Always there were bad political, bad laws and bad reforms, but today the communication and globalization in general show us that problem with more clarity and the people are tired. Finally, I hope the recently municipal elections give us new and good fruits in our present and our future.

The greatest chilean of all time


On my opinion the greatest chilean of all time is Violeta Parra. She was a songwriter, painter, sculptor between other things. She is the folklorist more important in Chile, and is the founder of Chilean folk music. Addition to the transcendence of her music, I like her poetic lyrics and socially committed. About the life of Violeta, she was a woman very hardworking since she was young, because her father was dead when she was only 14 years old and her family started to have economic problems. She started to work with her sister in different places, singing. Later she recorded several albums and she became known in many parts of the world. In one of her travels she met the love of her life but when she was 49 years old she committed suicide because the term of her relationship. In the process that she was in depression she make songs like “Gracias a la vida”, that is very paradoxical. Finally she left a legacy and many important singers and bands have new versions of their songs.
If I could talk to Violeta Parra I would not do questions, just I would tell her that she is a good songwriter and I think I would show my admiration for her creations.

Activities

The activities in general were funny and not so difficult. I could put my skills in practice and I discovered my bad english. Maybe, I can use the english for practical moments, but I still have to learn a lot. In the activities I followed instructions and I answered the questions. The activities consisted in different items with several questions. In some activities I learned new words that I can use for my vocabulary, with other activities like the “listenings” I discovered that my problem more serious with the english is that and I need practice this shortcoming. In the items about "reading comprehension" I had more abilities because I answered the questions quite well and fast. Finally I think it was a good activity because  it allowed evaluate me in many ways and also it is different to other activities that we do in the second hour of the class. I hope to get better results later.

The best gift :D

The best gift that I received is a travel to Punta Arenas with my family. When I was 11 years old my parents organized this travel because my father was born in that place and was very important for him make a travel with my mother, my sister and me. In that moment was my first time in a plane and I was very nervous and scared but later It was very funny for me. In Punta Arenas I met cousins, aunts and uncles that I had never seen. Punta Arenas, Puerto Natales and their typical tourist places like “las torres del paine”, “la silla del diablo”, “la cueva del Milodón” and Magallanes in general is too beautiful. I met many places but the island where my father lived with his parents and brothers was uninhabited because there were wild animals. Anyway I met the school where my father studied, the home of my father’s grandparents and the gym where my father played basketball, his passion. Also, everyday we had activities and familiar meetings with delicious food and happiness. Really, this travel for me was the best gift that my parents could give me. At this moment this gift is only a memory and the photos that I took in different places.
