What we have done during April

publicado a la‎(s)‎ 2 may. 2016 12:43 por Drawcia

For t
he past weeks, my classmates and I have been working about William Shakespeare, since April 23th is the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.
We learned about his life and works, and we even performed little bits of some of his works using a croma. Also, we made digital posters about his plays (the one in the left was made by me) and started a Google Docs site.
But of course, before doing all of that, we had to learn the proper grammar, vocabulary and resources.  We learnt about entonation when we speak, using conectors, pasive phrases and resources for make infographics.

The Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress located in Edinburgh, Scotland. It has been occuped since the Iron Age, and it has served for many things, like as a royal residence and as a military barrack. Although it is currently used as a turistic place.

Edinburgh Castle is one of the most attacked places in the world and it was involved in many conflicts from the 14th to the 18th century. One of the conlicts was the Wars of Scottish Independence.

.·.º Second Conditional Writing #1 º.·.

"If you met an alien, you would be famous!" I read that on a newspaper. Just like everyone, I wanted to be famous, so I started to think about where do aliens live. Would they live in space? In China? In the deep sea? There was another important quention too: How could I travel to all those places?

After thinking for a while, I was sure that I needed to travel to space, to Mars. I thought that if I go to USA and visit the NASA, they would let me use one of their rockets. The ships and boats were on sale, so I bought one and traveled to the USA using it.

Once there, I looked for NASA. When I found them, I asked them if they could lent me a rocket. They agreed, I rode on it and went to space. The rocket landed on the moon instsead of Mars, so pretty much everything I saw were just rocks, both big and small.

Today i will speak about the London Eye.
Firstly, the London Eye is the largest wheel in the worls, and it is located in the South Bank of the River  Thames. It can be really expensive but it its worth paying it since it offers many things and you can see London's landscape.

Secondly, you can buy various kinds of tickets. In every ticket you ride in the London Eye for 30 minutes, but there are differences between all of them. Per example,  in 'Standart Ticket' you can ride just one time, but in 'Day and Night experience' you can ride two times, one at day and other at night. The prices are also different for eatch ticket.

Finally, you can have a guided tour; and also you can have a dinner inside the London Eye, but since a ride last just 30 minutes, you have to eat the meal faster than in a restaurant.

I'm going to speak about London's landmarks. There are many interesting places here, both cultural and ludic, that are visited by lots of tourist every day.

First to all, you can visit Tower of London. It is located in the north of the city and it is opened for everyone.

Secondly, if you want to go shopping, you can go to either Convent Garden or to Camden Town. Each place has its strong and weak points. Convent Garden is near the center of London and it has a great variety of shops, restaurants and hotels, although they're very expensive. On the contrary, Camden Town is far away the city center, but its shops are cheaper than Convent Garden's, and it also has lots of different shops.

Finally, the Tower Bridge is a very nice place for visit since you can go through there by walking or by car and also you can see London and the river Thames by here.
