One way to travel abroad.

The exchanges are a way to travel cheaply. But that isn't the best, the main thing is learn other languages easily. Because, when you learn a language in your country with a teacher you only learn the base of the language, the grammar and vocabulary most correct. And if you learn the language in other country, you learn the coloquial and formal form to speak, to express you,... and when you will want express in this language with other person will be easier. Other good thing is that you know a lot of people and make many friends. Although these friends don't see them regularly, you can always stay in touch and then return to meet with them.
Exanges consist in change your home with a foreigner for a time. You go to his house, know a little his culture, his way of life and his language while he does the same in your house. 
This year, the french teacher has organized a exange with a french high school. We are all very interested, because it is a new experience and a great opportunity to master the languaje. We are already talking a year with our correspondents through email to know them better and gain a little confidence, and now comes the best part of the exchange. Now is when we have to travel and know his country. The exchange is programmed in such way that both correspondents and we are in the same conditions.
Our exchange begins in April, which is when the correspondents come to Spain, they will spend a week in which they will enjoy some trips by the area and know a little our customs. And it ends when we go to France the following month. Like them, we will spend a week there and we will go to visit some of the landmarks in his area. Let us know his language in a new and funny way, and I think that is the important thing: learn and enjoy!

“Born a Woman in China”, 15 real biographies picked by Xinxan Xue.

When the journalist Xinran decided to include a new section in her radio programme about Chinese women stories, she has never thought how shocking can these be. One of these stories is Hongxue’s diary, a girl treated as an object without importance. Here’s a summary of this testimony, in my opinion, the hardest and the most emotional.

The girl who has a fly as a pet

The New Year’s day of the year she’ll be 11, Hongxue woke up with her bed stained of blood. Her first reaction was feeling scared, but suddenly her mum told her that she has just become a woman, and then she felt very happy.
Two months later, her father came back of his military base. First, he congratulated her, but it wasn’t sufficient, he wanted to check it. He started to undress and taught her, warning to tell nothing to mum. It was her first feminine experience, and then, she felt sickness. Every time her mum went out, the same scene was repeated and each time Hongxue felt much more fear of his “love”. After a short while, her father was moved to other military base and because of her mum’s job, she and her little brother must go with dad. One more step to hell.
Every day, it didn’t mind if it was in the morning or in the night, her father got into her bed like a snake and started to repeat the same, even leading worse situations. Once, she decided to tell everything, but her hopes fell down when her mum’s only advice was: “You have to support it; we cannot live without your dad’s money”.
Hongxue’s body matured too quickly, her fear grew and her tiredness increased, so she got seriously sick. She went to the hospital and there, she discovered a comfortable place to stay, without dad’s abuses. Because of that, she did everything she can to stay there, even she injured herself, whatever not to come back home.
One day, when Hongxue was having a rest peacefully in the hospital, a little fly alight on her hand. Normally, her first reaction would have been killing it, flies are disgusting, but after so much time without feel a sweet caress, she decided to breed a fly. It was difficult because she knew no one would help her and besides, she should hide it, but finally she could. Her intentions finished when someone put accidentally a book on the night table and killed her pet. It was a very hard knock, but, anyway, she decided to keep it inside a chocolate.
After a short while, the doctor communicated Hongxue she was improving, so she would come back home in a few days. No, not again to hell! Come back home was not an option, so she decided to fell ill again. Once, a nurse had told her that flies are big carriers of diseases. The only living being that had made a smile on her face was showing her an exit now; she decided to rub one on a recent cut that hasn’t scar over yet. She didn’t care the death; everything was better than come back home. A week ago, she was moved to another hospital; fever had increased seriously. Good, the plan was going on.
The 11th September of 1975, Hongxue died of septicemia.

Hongxue, the silenced voice of a Chinese girl, as many other women in China.

Best Friends.

We all are differents but at the time we are similar, and  because of this we are friends. If someone laught, everyone laught, if someone cry, everyone cry, we are as different mother's sisters. But this is not important, the best of all is that we are always there to support us, to get smiles in difficult moments and to enjoy the good moments. It's not necesary that someone says how she feels, because only with a look, a word, a smile.... we know it, and we are there to help her. 

In four years, we have lived a lot of moments together, some bad moment, but mostly goods. Every day which passes, the bond that unites us becomes stronger. We cannot imagine a life in which someone of us isn't here, because a life if we are not together, directly is not a life.Because the friendship is the greatest thing that there is and will always be. Every second that we are together, it is unique, unparalleled. Every moment is an award, because we learn from the other. We learn that although we are different, real friends, will always stay together. We cannot let any nonsense to spoil this friendship in which we all have colaborated. Because when we´re lost and we´re tired, when we´re broken in two, let´s our love take us higher. Because we are the only thing that we got right now, and one day when the sky is falling, we'll be standing right next to you, nothing will ever come between us. We are sure that we are going to stay together for a long time, and in the future all will be as pretty as today. We will be little adults who sharee best smiles like we were young.
Finally, we have to thanks all the moments lived and say that we love you so much. 

                                                                                  Carmen Vera y Patricia López.


The Voice,is to choose from a group of contestants who excel in their vocal qualities without his image´s influence the jury's decision, made by famous artists who later will direct.

The aim of this format is to try to find the best voice of our country.

Rosario´s team was third to act. The first to sing was Anabella,after Monica and finally Jorge.First, the audience saved Jorge. Rosario, soon after, Anabella. Monica was therefore the first ejected Rosario´s team.

Malú´s team was the last team live gala. The first contestant was Hector, followed by Nuria and Pique Pau. The three artists were able to excite the public and put it up on several occasions, but only two of them could continue. The public, with their votes, decided to save Pau, while Malu, after much thought, decided that Nuria should continue in the program, leaving Hector outside the program.

Personally I prefer to Melendi.

     I´m going to talk  about one of the music producers in the world.
Armando Christian Pérez, born in Miami (Florida) on January 15, 1981, better known as Pitbull, is a Cuban-music producer in his early career he began with genres like reggaeton and hip hop. Then he specialized in genres more electro house and dance pop, passing also by many others, as it is one of the most requested artists for collaborations with various singers such as Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, Marc Anthony, Enrique Iglesias, Usher, Fergie, Havana Brown, Chris Brown, and others. He grew up in Little Havana section of Miami known for its large population of Cuban population.
     Among his hits are the singles "ass" “Dance again”, “On the floor”, “Maldito Alcohol” “I Know You Want Me”, “Hotel Room Service”, “Give Me Everything”, “Rain Over Me”,”International Love”, “Back In Time” and Get It Started with Shakira.

His inceptions:

     He made his official debut in music in 2002 with an album of Lil Jon. Conducted several mixtapes and finally to identify his style, hip-hop mixed with reggaeton. In 2004, Pitbull released his debut album "MIAMI"
Pitbull, since then, he has released five albums.
     The singer attended the College of Engineering and in those years he did freestyle, however, I knew I had to do something to stand out and decided to take the rap seriously, he began writing songs and began searching for a name. A person, listening his style, he said that when rapping style was a pitbull and was at that time that he decided to choose that name.
     His beginnings in the music started in the late decade of the 90`s, when Pitbull had the opportunity to record the hit song "Lollipop" with singer Luke of 2 Live Crew and it was through this cooperation that he learned the secrets of this business.
- In my opinion he is one of the best music producers that currently exist and their songs I love.
Here I leave one:

WANTED: 2012 F1 World Champion

Last weekend, Austin's Formula 1 race took place; a race in which Lewis Hamilton crossed the finish line in 1st position, Sebastian Vettel was 2nd and after him, Fernando Alonso in 3rd place. This race has been one of the most interesting races because Vettel could have become the world champion, but that didn't happen.

Sebastian Vettel was 10 points ahead Alonso before the race and he needed to earn 15 points more than him to become the world champion, and it looked it was going to be that way when Sebastian came 1st in the qualification and Fernando came 9th. But as Alonso predicted, the championship wasn't going to finish after that race and now I'm going to tell you why.

Alonso climbed 2 positions in the grid because Romain Grosjean and Felipe Massa (Alonso's team mate), who qualified better than him, dropped 5 places because of unscheduled changes in their cars. So Vettel would start from the 1st position, Hamilton from the 2nd one, Mark Webber (Vettel's team mate) from the 3rd one, and Alonso from the 7th one. Every one thought that Vettel was going to win the race and Alonso couldn't do anything, but that was until the race started.

At the start, Hamilton lost his position with Webber and from behind, Alonso climbed to 4th position. Everything was normal until suddenly Webber broke his alternator and his car stopped working. Workers in Red Bull Racing Team were afraid of this kind of problem to happen because they had had it all over the year and it was important to do not retire because that way Alonso gets more points and closer to Vettel. Then, Sebastian was 1st, Lewis was 2nd and Fernando was 3rd.

When this happened, Hamilton started getting closer to Vettel and he had some chances to overtake him. Meanwhile, Alonso did a pit stop, but there was a problem: a tyre got stuck and the mechanics couldn't get it out of the car! They lost too much time and everyone thought that the driver behind him, Kimi Raikkonen, was going to exit the pit in front of him. But when he did it he had exactly the same problem with the same tyre and he lost the same time Alonso did! So, luckly for him, Fernando was still 3rd.

Hamilton now was less than 1 second behind Vettel and, when there were 14 laps to go, Lewis overtook him. But Vettel thought that the race wasn't finished and kept trying to be again in the 1st position, but, at last, he couldn't do it. So the race finished and Hamilton was the winner, Vettel was 2nd and Alonso, far away from him, finished 3rd.

Now, Vettel is the leader of the championship with 273 points and Alonso is 2nd, 13 points behind. There is only one race left and if Alonso wants to be the world champion he has to get 1st to the finish line if Vettel finishes 5th or worse, 2nd if Vettel gets 8th or worse, or 3rd if Sebastian gets 10th or worse. If Vettel gets 4th or better, no matter what Fernando Alonso does, he will be the 2012 Formula 1 World Champion.
