When I was little (past forms revision and use of “used to”)

A rock star by Elisabeth Cardona

When I was thirteen years old I wanted to be a rock singer.I listened to rock music every day.
My favourite singer was “Suzi Quatro”.She had a rock band and she sang hard rock, Suzi shouted when the song finished.
I decided to study music, my dream was to be a rock singer.
My music teacher was a good pianist. He taught me how to play the piano and how to sing without shouting. However I still wanted to be a rock singer. I thought that my musical education would be good for my dream.
I studied music for five years, I played the piano every day. I enjoied playing classical music at the piano. My favourite composers were Bach, Mozart…
My dream didn’t come true, because when I was eighteen years old I didn’t become a rock singer, I wanted to study, my dream was to be a teacher.
However, in my heart there will always be a good memory from that singer.
I think that I still dream of being a bit of a rock artist sometimes.

My Favourite Things

Iuma by Encarna Muñoz


My favourite thing is my daughter’s pup, maybe the prettiest dog I’ve ever seen.
It’s just two months old.
This puppy is as tall as the cuddly dog that I bought last Christmas, the night before the 6th of January, the Three Wise Men’s day.
It’s so nice for me to watch it walking along the street, although it walks more slowly than me, and so I have to pick it up and hold it in my arms.
Anyway it’s the most beautiful puppy I’ve ever had.
Now I don’t really spend a lot of time at home, because I love visiting my daughter and taking care of Iuma with her (together). It’s more fun!

A phonecall

A fire in the campus by Mercè Tarrés


-Hello Josep! How are you?

-Hello mum! I’m well, but at this moment I’m feeling sad.

-What’s the matter?

-I’m seeing how my university is burning!

-What are you saying? What’s happened?

-During the past weekend there was a leak of water, then they cut the water supply but it had produced a shortcut in a coffee machine placed on the 6th floor. It started to burn this morning. The flames reached the roof and it fell down. The firemen controlled the evacuation of the building.

-It’s terrible! Were there any victims?

-No, there weren’t any. The police and the firemen cleared people out orderly. All day there has been a gray cloud over Delft and the air smells bad.

-Did you have anything there?

-No, I only had two models from the quarter and they had already been marked.

Netherlands architects are worried. the library contained some important books and there was also an important collection of chairs designed by the most important architecture figures.

-Where are the students going to continue with their courses?

-There are some buildings in the campus where they can continue, and in Rotterdam too, I suppose.

-I’m sorry for all but the important thing is that people are well. We’ll talk in the a few days. Kisses for you!

-Bye, bye, mum. Kisses for you too.

Bathers at Asnières by Conxi García


This is a Georges Seurat’s picture called ‘Bathers at Asnières

One child is taking a bath in the river, he is wearing a yellow hat and the other one is putting his hands on his mouth. He is wearing a red hat and a bathing suit too. On the left, there is a man who is laying down on the grass, he’s wearing a black hat, a shirt and blue trousers. All the people are wearing bathing suits but they aren’t wearing shirts.

Many people are swimming or sunbathing on the margins of the river. In the river, three people are sailing with a small boat. This picture is at the National Gallery of London.

    I was watching TV in my house when suddenly I heard a very strong noise. Then I got up from my chair because I wanted to see over the balcony while the people were speaking loud.
    After that I was worried but… I went to the kitchen to drink a beer and later…
    I was waking up from my dream.

    It was dark night, we had stormy weather.The windows closed and opened. Sundderly the door opened and a ghost appeared before our eyes whith a glass of red wine and said with a strange voice:good nigth everyone.
    Do you think it was a glass of wine or a glass of blood?
    Unfortunately we woke up but.finally we saw there was a glass of red wine on our bed side table…

    In my dream I was walking on the beach. Suddenly a handsome man gave me an envelope. Then to my surprise I lookeed into the envelope and I found a lot of money. After that my mind began to dream. Unfortunately the money was false. Finally some loud music sounded and I woke up.

    Dear teachers! How are you ?
    I’m very well.I would like to tell my holidays. I went to Paris, I visited three museums: Pompidou, Louvre and Orsay.
    Vincent Van Goch (painter impressioniste) has one room with his paintings in the museum Orsay. I felt a good impression when saw theirs paintings. I got goose-pimples (se’m va posar la pell de gallina).
    I visited la tour Eiffel, Notre Dame, Saint Chapelle, Montmatre…
    Paris is a lively city, when I get on underground I counted seven races diferent people.
    I went also to Belgium, Brujas is a medieval city, theirs buildings are gothic.
    The Gran Markt is a beautiful square when the people can drink to a beer, contemplate the pretiest building in the town.
    Bruselas is a modern city when there are The European Parliament and gothics buildings too.
    The chocolate is delicious but very expensive.
    I had another exciting experience I made rafting in the Noguera Pallaresa River. I fell when the water to flowed very rapid (quick), I was very scared because the river crawled (arrossegava) my body, in the end I toke the roar and I to get into the boat.
    I like travel around the worl, I’ m organizing the next holidays. I would like go to England why I can speak a lot of english.
