.: A movie I like :.

Hi everybody! I must tell you that now, my favourite movie isn´t Spiderman, is ICE PRINCESS.
Yes, now, Spiderman is on second place! I'll tell you about this beautiful movie!
Starring Michelle Trachtenberg, Joan Kusack and Kim Katrall.
The movie is about a very intelligent girl , who wins a Harvard University's scolarship. She must do a work to enter to Harvard. She decides to do a project about ice-skating. She discovers that her passion is ice-skating, but her mum doesn´t like that sport. At the end, she is a very important skater. The message is that you have to follow your dream.

Internet in your life!

What do you use Internet for?

Nowadays, the internet is used by almost everyone. The web brings you a lot of solutions, from working to studying or just for cooking. Generally, I use this method for having fun whit my friends. I download music and I play computer games, like Counter Strike or Age of Empires. I also use it for searching restaurants and bars where I could go, places where I can go swimming or doing different types of sports.

When I’m alone, and nobody of my family can tell me how to arrive to a particular place, I search in the Internet for maps, and bus directory’s to help me by myself. The internet also brings me a big advantage whit the “Messenger”, because is the only way I have to talk whit my friends of France gratuitously, without paying thousands of dollars in phone cards.

There are many ways of using the web, but, what’s yours?

what do you use internet for?

The Internet is a world, a universe by itself waiting to take you on a journey. I use the web to find addresses, phone numbers, maps, pictures of about anything. I read movie reviews, get TV listings, read the news, catch the latest weather.

I use the Internet to cook because I can found prescriptions of food with all the procedures. I can found the prescriptions of food of other cities like the customs of China.
Google is one of the most popular please that the people an i visit to found thing. Also Yahoo, for send email with other people. Wikipedia is a site where the teenagers look for information for their school. Teenagers use the internet look for games, for chatting, movies, music, imagines, and other thing.

Doing Maitena's homework

My student Maitena (also known here as Catalina) has written two posts here and here. I couldn't understand the problem she had with the third one, which I received via email. That's why I'm here, invading my students' blog to post this for her.
This is her "post".


At the corner of 9 de Julio Avenue and Avenida de Mayo, there is a painting on the wall of the building, just at the corner, which summarises in images, the most significant symbols of Buenos Aire city.

Although Bueno Aires is a cosmopolitan city where you can final people from all over the world, it also has a strong identity, especially in its music Tango. Tango is Buenos Aires and the painting shows basically that. People dancing, musical instruments, all images that represent no other city but Buenos Aires.

Apart from the images related to Tango, we can also see typical things of Buenos Aires city such as buses, bus stops, people in general.

I think that this particular corner of Buenos Aires best summarises what we are, what we have and what we like.

Of course any society has many aspects in its characteristics and Buenos Aires is not an exception but the wall on the corner of 9 de Julio Avenue and Avenida de Mayo shows what we basically are.

I didn't forget to upload the photo. She didn't send me the link. Sorry, but you are missing the chance of knowing what she is talking about.

Brian’s presentation

Hi, my name is Brian and I’m sixteen years old. I’m an only child so I live whit my parents without brothers or sisters. In my free time I loved playing with my play station 2 but now is broken so I can’t use it. At weekends I like going out with my friends, playing the guitar in my room and chatting. Now I’m in 4th year so I think that the next year I’m going to finish the high school.

Wednesday, 17 October 2007

The person who has taught me te most is my mother. My dad travells a lot so he isn't much at home. She's more than just a mother to me, she's like a good friend.
She has brown hair and brown eyes. She's always smiling. She isn't very tall and she's thin.
Shw's very considerate and very friendly. She's nice and sensitive. She has a lot of friends and she is a very good mum.
She taught me a lot of important things. She taught me to be honest and never tell lies. She also taught me to be friendly and look for the good in everyone.

My favourite photo

One of my Favourite photos is one of my cousin Sophie and me eating lettuce. My aunt took the photo in summer of 1998
when we were having lunch at my grandmother's house, in Adrogue.
Sophie and me every summer usually stay a week at the house of my grandmother because there is a pool, a nice garden and Adrgue is very quiet.
I like the photo because it is very funny. I keep the photo on the back of the door of my bedroom and when Sophie and I see the photo we usually laugh.

For Gabriela: Do you want to change the colors of the blog? I think they are a littel boring. Think about it

Hi everybody! I wanted to post something about my favourite city. So, enjoy this post!


This city is in California. It's the biggest of California. This city was created in 1781 by a spanish man called Felipe de Neve.

It has got a beach and a lot of people who live there. It's full of shops and big houses. A lot of famous people, actresses and actors, live there.

It's a really beautiful city because of its buildings, films, books and... all! I've never been in Los Angeles, but I'd like to go one day. Please comment and visit a text about Spiderman ( my favourite movie) in the wiki :

Elmo is in a graffiti!

I took this graffiti from internet and I selected it because the drawing remembers my infancy. The person in the draw is “Elmo” a character of a cartoon called Plaza Sésamo.

When I was a little girl I loved watching that TV programme and my favorite character was Elmo.

I like this graffiti because the drawer used a lot of colors that do the grafiti looks like a photo. Also, there are some fluorine colors that attracts the viewer’s attention.

I think that this graffiti belongs to a band, because so many times appears the logo “Cha Noir” and also because Elmo is playing a drum. Maybe, the members wants to do publicity of his band and he think that the graffiti is the best way to the reputation.

Do you think that graffiti is a good way of publicity something?

A beautiful place

Puerto Madero is the newest district of Buenos Aires. Located by to borders of the river, with an ample supply of commercial and gastronomical attractions. One part of the zone of Puerto Madero grows incessantly, extending the supply of houses and offices. Every day there are more people who choose to live a meter away form the river. The district is a zone intensely visited by tourists.

In 1870 the economic situation of Buenos Aires was very good, already it was clear that the very old Buenos Aires port needed to turn into something more apt for the reception and the shipment of passengers and products.

Between 1876 and 1886 there were two suggestions with their projects for the renovation of the port ok Buenos Aires.
Much money was spent to make all the work and it took more than ten years to finish it. In 1897 the new port was inaugurated.

The popular art

We can give the name grafiti, grafito or graffiti to the different ways of inscription or painting,
generally under private or public property like walls, vehicles, doors, and most of all skate parks. In the common language, graffiti also includes what we call drabs: the result of painting on walls signs, frequently with political or social content, without the permission of the owner of the property. We can also call graffiti the slogans that have been popularized with that technique, for example the phrase that has been used in May ´68 in Paris, France: “Under the cobbles is the beach”.
The expression “graffiti” is also used for referring to an artistic movement, different to painting or qualified as a subcategory of it. In my own opinion, I don’t really like graffiti, because it is considered an important element in the hip-hop culture, something that I hate. However, I have to admit that people who make graffiti pieces are really artists. I do not like that all the people who make graffiti are influenced by the culture of the United States. What I want to say is that the graffiti is not an art form that has been created in our country, on the contrary, it is an expression that has became famous some years ago, thanks to the strong influence of the American capitalism in Argentina, something that is impossible to stop nowadays.
In spite of all these setbacks, what I like about graffiti’s is that they always show the social moment that the society is living getting in touch with feelings through the colours, designs and slogans that are written. All the reasons that I have just stated plus the fact that I have never draw anything, can demonstrate that I could never made a graffiti or any other sort of art expression that can damage the public space. I found this graffiti in the Mitre train station between Nuñez and Rivadavia. If you like it, you must go and see it!

My assignment was to find or take a photo of a graffiti that I like. I chose a graffiti made in Palermo. When I saw it I liked because there were a lot of colors and it seemed to be painted by different persons. The way that people painted the wall was different because of the techniques. The color that protrudes is green and when I see the picture, I can recognize it immediately.
In the picture there is a man who finished painting the wall. It looks beautiful.
And… Have you ever painted a graffiti or thought about that??? I have never done it.

when spring appears

give lusty cheers
when spring appears
when spring appears.

Buds and seeds
prick up their ears
and blades of grass
show eager spears.

And only icicles
weep tears
when spring appears

My Favorite place in Buenos Aires

My favorite place in Buenos Aires is Tigre because there are a lot of people
enjoying the environment and having fun.
Also, you can eat looking the landscape and when you finish your food,
you can travel on a boat and have a good time with family and friends visiting the city.
In Tigre, there is a place called “Puerto de frutos” where people can go looking for shops to buy fruits, clothes, etc.
You want to have fun, you can go to “Parque de la Costa” and enjoy the roller coasters. I have never gone there because I am afraid of this kind of games!!, but the majority of people have a good experience.

Villa Traful

Last month I traveled with my partners and six teachers to Villa Traful in Neuquen. The during of the trip was seven days. We stayed in a hostel and one day we slept in the “Cerro Bayo”.
Every day there was snow so we can enjoyed a lot. We did these activities: trekking, mountain bike, “culopatín”, we traveled in a aerosilla and the last day we did a stove and later a fancy-dress party . I dressed up of a baby: I used a bib, a dummy, an infantile pyjamas and a doll.
When we went to the mountain bike I fell down three times and in one of them I hitted in the pear but fortunately nothing happens to me.
I enjoy very much the trip along with my friends, it was a very nice experience and I hope that one day it should be possible to repeat it.

Here is the web site of the hostel:

Wednesday, 5 September 2007


I went to Traful with the school. I stayed in Traful for ten days and came back last week.

On the way to traful the bus broke down. We stayed three hours inside the bus until a charter come to pick us up.Then we arrived at a hut and we had tea.

Another day we walkend up a mountain. When reached the top of the mountain we ate a sandwich. There was so much snow that If you sat down, you could not stand up easily. When we walked down the mountain we sat down on the snow and went down sitting. During the trip we usually had sandwich, chicken,escaloped meat, soup and toasts.
In the trip I learnt that it wass too long because you had to tolerate other people all the time.
During the trip I learnt to be patient with other people but next year I will not go again.

Recoleta cemetery´s

A lovely place where I like going, is the cemetery of Recoleta. This cemetery was founded in 1822 and it’s the place where a lot of presidents and national heroes have been buried. I like the cemetery because I appreciate his architecture orientated to the European architecture of the seventeen century. Inside the cemetery there is a lot of flours and the air is very pure. When I am inside, I can feel very relaxed, and I feel that my soul is in a perfect harmony whit myself. Sometimes I just sit over a stone close to a big mausoleum and I stay there thinking about the people I love.

Here there is a poem about the cemetery that I loved; I’ve just translated by my own so it is possible that it has a lot of mistakes. Anyway, here it is!

The life and the death by Susana Espósito

Recoleta, a district so ambivalent, on the one hand life, on the other one death.Bars, restaurants, flowering parks, craftsman fairs, people laughing . The death looks at them silently, on the other side, peace from cemetery. Behind his walls, rest the valiant,poets, sportsmen’s, several presidents, catch the mystery of young girls, the history of love and sleeping beauty. Angels watch over their shattered dreams, swords rest, those that so much had fought, laurels crown the achieved glories martyrdom palms, embitter tears. An anchor wants to be reinforced in the earth; she ignores the mystery that death shut in, and the mother’s son who watches whit a sweet look, bless everyone who arrives to his eternal dwelling.

This is a link for a website where you can go if you are interested in founding more information about Recoleta cemetery:

Here there is another link, this time you can see a video about de cemetery:

My Favourite Programme

My favourite programme is a cartoon called The Simpons. It's in Telefe everyday at 7 p.m. It's a story about a very funny family who live in Springfield. Homero and Marge have three kids: Bart, Lisa and Maggie. Lisa is very intelligent and she also plays the saxophone, but Bart is a bad boy who always gets in trouble at school. Marge is a very good mother and she wants everything to be very clean. But Homer is very different, he never wants to work and he loves beer and donuts. Their neighbors are a nice family called Flanders who are very religious. Homer hates Ned Flanders and he always uses his things.
The reason why I like this programme is because it's very funny to see all the crazy things this family do. I recommend this programme to all the people, no matter how old they are, who want to have a good time and laugh a lot.

My favourite TV programme

My favourite TV programme is a series called E.R. (Emergency room). You can see it on Warner Channel on Thursdays at 10 p.m.
This series started in 1994 and finishes next year, has 14 seasons and for me is a very good series. E.R. tell the story of emergency room in a county hospital of Chicago. Also tells the life of the doctors of emergency and nurses, the relationships between the doctors and the patients, and between the doctors and the doctors or nurses. In the series there are a lot of stories of doctors and nurses in love, problems with their family, some doctors die or leave the hospital for different reasons.
In this programme George Clooney started to be famous in the character of a pediatrician until season 4th because after that he started his profesional career of a film actor. Also other actors started to be famous but no like George.
I like the series because I learn a lot of medicine. Thanks to E.R. I meet a group of girls fans of the series like me in internet because I have a "fotolog" and the girls signed my guestbook and afterwards we started to talk by chat and now they are my best friends. I have this fotolog since aougost 2006 and has more than 250 posts.

Hi everyone! My name is Paula, i am 17 years old and i am one of Gabriella´s students. I was born in Buenos Aires but i wish, if i could, travel all over the world when i became older.
In my free time i like watching movies with mi friends and what i enjoy more is seeing fashion shows. Today i went to one of this fashion shows called "Buenos Aires Fashion Week" and it was fantastic.

A little of Ana's life

I’m Ana. I’m sixteen and I live with my mother, my sister and my mother’s boyfriend. Three times a week I visit my father and also, I go to sleep to his house or we go to the cinema.
The school where I go is very strict and I have to study a lot, so at the weekends I can’t go out very often.
Next year, I am going to finish high school and I would like to study something like social communication or education because that's interesting me and also because I hate subjects which are related with mathematics and natural science.
When I go out, I meet my friends at their houses (sometimes we meet in my house) and then we go to a party or we go to have a drink.
I like listening to music. My favorite kind of music is the “national rock” and in my free time and before I go to sleep I love listening to it.
On Saturdays I do swimming. I do this sport because I have a problem with my back and the swimming helps me to stand straight.
