my favorit recipe

This composition is very interesting for me, because I like to cook, so in this unit I learned to describe dishes and the steps you should follow to prepare them and the different ways to cook them.

The Omelet is from Spain. I learned to prepare this because my mom usually prepares it for dinner or breakfast.

Prep time: 10 minutes

letter to the governor

We usually use informal expressions to write letters but if you need to do a request about your city we should use formal expressions

Dear Mr. Rosales receive my cordial greetings, the present letter is to inform you of various problems that we have in the city of Maracaibo, and also I want to present options in order to solve some of the problems.

First of all, we mention the high number of the delinquency that increases having no enough basic security for the every day living.

The public transportation infrastructure is chaotic, we see the buses full of people and buses stations are also full of people waiting to be transported to their houses or jobs, which indicate that the actual amount of units and routes are no enough to cover the demand in transportation.

Another problem that affects our city is the culture of drivers and pedestrians following basic rules of transit in this city.

Proposed solution:

To solve the problem of delinquency I propose to have more presence of the police in the street, it is basic to understand the root cause of the problem and to establish a master plan focused to solve this.

To solve the problem in the transportation infrastructure, it is necessary to evaluate the amount of units, we need a sort of unit capable of transport more people, routes well designed in function of the movement of the people, it is basic to know where the people wants to go at what hours and focus this point.

We have to start changing the culture of our children if we want to have good citizens
In the future, use the TV in order to enforce an advertising campaign focused in this item, and use also the radio and the news.

Please consider these basic solutions; I think we have a very good city and we love Maracaibo. I think that we deserve to live better and that the solutions is in your hands.

Sincerely, Mario Valbuena.

Now, my friend reader! What are some problems and solutions you have in your city? Please, let me know.

Description of my house and the house of my dreams

This is the house of my dreams

Well, I really learned new expressions and words and how to compare things, in this case comparing my house to another house. I describe my dream house.

I would like to have a house with a beautiful garden, and with an amazing pod in the backyard. I would like it to have two floors, five bedrooms with a bathroom on each one. I did also like it to have a huge kitchen with a dining room.

My house is something big, modern; it has three rooms and a great room receiver. My house is clear it has wide windows that allow illuminating it with natural light and it refreshes all the spaces easily saving high quantity of electric power. On the other hand my sister’s house is small, in comparison with my house. Her house is that because she doesn’t have a good natural illumination with windows because it consumes this way more electric power for artificial illumination in all moment.

your dream house like? Please tell us....

my next vacations

I learn to write sentences in future time. I am going to talk about what people need if they want to visit a place or what they need to travel, and what they should do in each place.

Next vacation, I am going to travel to Greece with my mother. We are going to visit Athena because there is where my brother Juan Carlos lives. The cost of the ticket is 1334 $ in low season and 2223 $ in high season. The lodging is not a problem because we will arrive in my brother’s house. Greece is a country whit an interesting history. In Greece I would like visitor the diverse place as the national Archaeological museum, the Byzantine museum and the Museum of the Acropolis all the in Athena. I hope to be able to enjoy this wonderful place and to have many photos for the memories. You just need a passport to travel. In this country, we can see the all seasons winter, spring, summer and fall. In summer is so hot, the temperature can be 42 c.
