Since the first composition to the last one there are a lot of differences on my English progress. I used to wrote more easy and simple as you can see on my first composition, (an e-mail to a teacher where I explained my life). The last one was a formal letter for a President complain about the child explotion in their country and we can observe the progress on the contain. 
On the linguistic arguments, I can see that at the begining of the course the structure was very simply and now is more formal and worked. The vocabulary used in the first post was more basic and in the last one has been more specific. 
To conclude, I can say that I did a big develop from the first course of "Batxillerat" to the final of second, so I have improved my maturity in the written documents. 

About my oral presentation, I can say that I have improved a lot my English since the first presentation, that was about weddings, to the last one, about my research project: my reserch project: did really know what we pay?. I can observe a lot of differences, specialy on the way to did it: I did the first one with my friends and the last one alone, so it has been a big step for me. Also, I can see that the topic was very different. The first was more objective and the last more subjective, because I explain what I did in my reserch project. 
On the linguistic arguments, I can see that my pronunciation has improve a lot. More over, my language is better than in the past,  I have more fluency to speak in public and I have improved with the eye contact.

I choose this song "Cheerleader" from Omi, because I like a lot this song. When I listen this song all arround me change, because it gives to me good vibes like the summer is coming and I will enjoyed a lot. Also, this song motives me to study for everything that will com later like the university. 

Oh I think that I found myself a cheerleader/ oh crec que em vaig trobar amb una animadora
She is always right there when I need her/ ella sempre hi és  quan la necessito
Oh I think that I found myself a cheerleader/ oh crec que em vaig trobar amb una animadora

She is always right there when I need her/ ella sempre hi és  quan la necessito



As cities continues to grow at a dizzying rate, all the commuters are fighting to have a parcking to go to their jobs.  But now, a group of German engineers have the solution, a "flexible" electric car capable of shirnking.
The EO smart Connecting Car 2 is an innovation design from DFKI Robotics Innovation Center, in Germany. 
It drives like a traditional car because each wheel is powered by his own motor. Also, it can drive sideways for past into tight spaces, in urban areas where parking is limited.
It has a top speed of 65km/h and it can travel 50 or 70km with a single battery for four hour. 

In my point of view I think that this car is an amazing thing, because it can reduce her size and it can be very useful.

Today, we went to play a volleyball match in Vall d'Hebron, Barcelona. It was an important one, but it was very difficult  to win because they are the firsts of the league. We fought a lot and we losted it, but now we can fight up to the second category. We have to play only two more matches, one of them in Sant Just, and the other one in Sant Pere versus Mataró. We can do it, because they are the last ones and we are the thirds.
It is going to be very hard to get it, but we can do it.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided on a name for their daughter but want to inform the Queen personally today before it is publicly releasedThe Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have decided on a name for their daughter but they decided to inform the Queen personality before the publicity.
The wait for the name has led to a betting bonanza, with Charlotte and Alice the clear favourite. 
It is expected that William and Kate will leave London with their two children this morning.
Kate's mother Carol and her sister Pippa were first to have a cuddle with the little princess.

In my point of view, I think that for William has to have a tradition to say the name first to the Queen, because they were together a lot of time during his childhood, so they decided to wait for the Queen.

The 22nd of April was the birthday of my best friend, Anna. She did 18 years old, so we did a surprise party for she. 
A week ago to the party, my friends and I met to prepare some things for the party, like we did a photocall and the postcard. When the day arrives all of us were very nervous, because we had to do a lot of things. First of all, Anna went to see a match of basketball all the afternoon, so two of my friends went to preparation the garage for the party. I was playing a match of volleyball in Sant Pere and when it finished I went to help my friends in Anna's house. When I arrived, we went to the supermarket to buy the dinner. At night, all the friends arrives and we finished to prepare all. 
When all where prepared and arrives in her house and she had a big surprise for all. We had dinner, fun and to finish the night we went to barraques in Figueres. 


This summer is going to be different to the others. Why?

First of all, when I will finish the "selectivitat", I am going to go to Menorca with my friends in Sant Joan. We are traveling to the Balear's Island because we want to celebrate that we finish the bachilor and the selectivitat exams. We are going to flight there the 21st and we get back on 26th of June. 
After that, I amb going to work, in the afternoons this holidays. I will work in Mas Gusó, a restaurant and a wine shop in Sant Pere Pescador. 
A part of that, during mornings I will go to the swimming pool, to the beach and the river with my friends.

I think that this summer it will be different because it will be the first time that I will work. 
After the summer, I am going to study in Barcelona. I will study the degree in Business Administration and Management, like my sister does.

Mr. Ram Baran Yadav, President
Real Palace

Dear Mr. Ram Baran Yadav,

I am writing to enquire about child exploitation in your country. This situation is very frequent because too many  children do not go to school and they have to go to work from very early ages. Their workday is very long and they have to do the same thing all the time. Also, they are working inside big factories because they have to do a lot of things.  multinational companies  take on children as they have small hands and arms and they can do specific work. The worst of the worst is that there are low salaries to do a lot of work.

I wish child explotion definitily would disappear for ever. Children are not prepared for do what the multinacional demands. Also, they do not have any resources to survive, so they have to work a lot to try to survive. I wish you would reduce it for avoid this problems in your country.

I look forward to you Mr. president.

In Spain the Popular Party should withdraw a bill that would force the girls of 16-17 years old to obtain the consent of their parents to terminate the pregnancy. 
The right party says that it can produce a serious threat to the health and sexual.
The proposte legislative change says that the girls of 16-17 years old would be obligated to obtain consent from their parents before terminating a pregnancy.
International human rights law recognizes the access to safe and legal abortions is fundamentals to women and girls exercice for their human rights.

In my point of view, I think that it's a good law to approve because if a girl of 16 years old has a child, the parents of the mother of the child has to take care for the two, because she is very young.

1. What are human rights? The rights you have simply because you're human

2. When and why were they created? In 1948, because after the war they saw the horror caused and they decided to created the human rights because it doesn't happen again.

3. How many human rights are there? There are 30 human rights.

4. Which human right were you not familiar with? The right to play, asylum, rest and relaxation.


Slavery: slavery began in the New World in the 16th century.

Unfair: It's unfair, we are all equal.

Detainment: The policeman did the detainment of the thief.

Trial: They are on trial for armed robbery.

I chose the human right of education because I think that it's an important one from my point of view. This is respected in Spain, but it's violated in Africa, where a lot of children didn't go to the school.

Shazam, an aplication that consist to identificate a music, now his creator wants to branch out into identifying objects.
The blue button will remain on the home screem but will be able to do much more. 
One possibility about how it works will be that this service would work based on bar codes. 
It now sells songs that it users identify, having secured deals with all the major streaming music services including Spotify and Deezer. 
Lately it has also become a port of call for advertisers. 

In my point of view, I think that this app is very useful and now if they want to include this new branch it can be more useful to know about the objects. 



There are golds iPads in every room, 17 types of pillow and an army of butlers trained by whatching Downtow Abbey.
In this hotel it goes a lot of celebritys like Rogere Federer, Claudia Schiffer and mor of 11,000 Britons a year.

There are 200 chefs and a 70- strong arrivals team: men and women chosen for their good looks. Anyone applying for the job as a consergie must undergo a luxury test. 
Each of the 200 luxuriosoly appointed suites has its own butler. 
No demand is too taxing. One gust turned up with a dead allidator and asked the staff to cook it dor him and they did it. 
Another gest asked for some special touches in his suite as he was planning to propose to his girlfriend. So, the personal import form Colombia and Kenya 5.000 rose petals where it were strewen over the bedroom. 

I think that it have to be a very experience to be in this hotel from Dubai. This hotel is very luxurios and I would like to go in the future, but I have to work a lot for to be there. So, I think that I have to renunced because it's very very expensive.

I play in a team of volleyball in my town and We are in the cathegory of "juvenil". 
In this season we have new players that they were from the club of volleyball from Castelló. Also, we have a new coach called Miquel. 
Now we passed the first phase and we are in the promotion phase to go up to the second cathegory. 
In my point of view, I think that we can go up but we are going to fight a lot because there are a lot of good teams like the Barça. The fourt firts teams are going to go up, so we have to do it!

Weeks ago all the second of bachilor did a skype with an exstudent form Ies Castelló. Shs decided to do a Gap year in Austraila. In the conference Noa talks about his experience in Australia and about to take the decision to do a gap year. 
We asked questions about his travel and his experience there. Also, we asked why she did it, and the diferences of culutues. 
Now, she still in Australia takeing care about childrens, she lives in a family where as I said she take care abou the guys. 
She decided to do a gap year, because she wants to improve her english. Also, she do it to take experience and for clarify his ideas.

I think that it's a good idea to do a gap year because you learn the idiom, you grow up, you know diference cultures and other things. I would like to do a gap year, but if I do it I think that I will do an Erasmus during the degree, I would like to go to New York.

A debate between family and friends about the colour of a dress for a wedding has become an interent sensation. 
Why are people seeing different colours?
One explenation is that it could be down to an optical illusion, stemming from how the human brain process colours. A teacher from the university of Leeds, says that the people don't know is that even if the rest of us aren't colour blind we don't always see colours in the same way.
He tells that the confusion could stem from how we name de colours, as there are often blurred lines between how we interpret what colour is. But, he said that this is an extrem case, because there are a diference between black and gold, blue and black. 

For me the colour of this dress is black and blue, but my frienda and my family see it in white and gold. I think that this debate has much to talk, and it was a trending topic in all the social networks.

In this photo we can see the original dress, that is blue and black.

The Lunar New Year is here and the Asia countries are celebrating.

Store windows are decked out with cartoon like sheep, cheeky goats and curly horned rams for a big marketing that someone say that is bigger than christmas in the West. On teacher from the University of Hong Kong, who is specialist of the Chinese mythology says that he think that he translated the yang as a goat for the simple reason that if we look at the way the character yang is written you can see that there is a pair of horns.

In my point of view I think that it's a beautifull tradition that they have.

The present reserch project is about Taxes, that is an important topic in our society. The project has two main objectives. The most important one is to find out people's knowledge about taxes and the other part is to discover what part of our expenses are devoted to the payment of taxes.
In order to get results for these objectives, I did surveys to the population and I collected all the receipts that a random family has. 

Key words: tax, tax system, expenses.

Also, she succumbed to E.coli and pneumonia and she had to learn to walk again after the cancer tratment severely damaged her bones.

The mother of the girl said that she was ver pale, tired and had aching legs. When on of his aunts recognised tell-tale signs of leukaemia.

In my point of view I think that this cancer for Ellie and her family had to be very hard and they had fight a lot to overcome the leukaemia.
