2º ESO’s BEST Writing Activities 2012-2013

THE BEST WRITING ACTIVITIES

UNIT 9. Write a Report about advertising on TV, using statistic details.

Advertisements’ time, by Cristina Mota.

This report is about the time that Spanish TV channels show us advertisements. I have answers from the internet and some webpages.

The channel that show more advertisement during the day is “Cuatro”. It emits about three hous eighteen minutes of advertisements. After “Cuatro” comes “Telecinco” with three hous and eight minutes. The cannel that emits less advertisements is “La 1”. It only emits fifteen minutes of advertisements. La 1’s advertisements are only about itself. It doesn’t advertise products.

In conclusion, I think this information is interesting. The most surprising thing is that we sometimes see lots of advertisements but we continue seeing the channel.

—————————————

Advertising, by María Roman

This report is about the opinion of people about advertising.

People like advertising because they laugh, they remember past moments. I have asked 10 friends about their favourite advertisement. Four of them say that they like advertisements about Coca Cola, because they are very creative, funny and original. Two of my friends say that they like advertisements about Fanta for its slogan “si te aburres mándalo a tomar fanta y diviértete”. Three of them say that they like advertisements about famous people but they didn’t know why. One of them says that he likes advertisements about families, because he remembers past moments and he enjoys it.

In conclusion, people like seeing advertising to have fun.

UNIT 8. Write a description of you habitat.

Description of Los Barrios, by Rafa Muñoz.

I live in a small village in a small country.

Most of the year it is sunny here, but sometimes it is also rainy. The climate is very good here, a lot of tourists visit my village in summer thanks to our wonderful weather. In winter, it is neither cold nor hot.

There is a small beach and also tropical jungles which are typical in this area because it rains a lot in the mountains. In the beach there were flamingos but now there aren’t because 50 years ago, two factories were built next to the beach and the flamingos emigrated to other place.

There is a river that separates the beach in two parts. Obviously, before the river was formed, they were only one beach. My village is popular thanks to the tropical jungles, because they are the lasts in Europe.

Luckily, I don’t like big cities. They are noise and a small village like mine is relaxed and I like to be relaxed.

———————————————-

My habitat, by Yasmin Zuliani.

I live in Andalusia, to be exact, in Cadiz. In Andalusia, it doesn’t rain so much. In summer it’s quite hot, around 30ºC, but unfortunately, it is very wet. Temperatures in summer are very high and sometimes the cause of many fires in the countryside, which is very sad. Fortunately, there are many beaches, rivers and lakes. Tourists come to our beaches all summers.

The most typical food that can be found in Andalusia is tortilla, which is an omelette with potatoe, paella with seafood or meat, olive oil, seafood and meat.

The Iberian lynx, the pig, eagle and the bull are the most common animals found in this area. Honestly, it’s a nice place which to live in, next to the forest and the many beaches, and added to that, we also have Sierra Nevada a short drive away!

The only thing I don’t like is the factories. They spoil all the surroundings with its smoke, smell and pollution.

UNIT 7. Write an opinion essay.

Going to university, by Marta Rubio.

Going to university is a really good idea for three main reasons.
I think that it is good because if you have a degree you have more possibilities to find a job. If you study a career, then you will have a very good job and you’ll have more knowledge than other people without studies.
I believe that if you study a foreign language, you can go abroad and you can visit other places and meet new people.
As well, if you go to university, you must learn to be in contact with your flatmates because you have to divide up home’s common zones (living-room, bathroom, etc) and you must respect the timetable.
In my opinion, it is a really good idea because you’ll be more educated and you will learn many things about life such as independence, responsibility and to be a good person.
——————————————————–

Going to university, by Sergio Relinque.

Going to university is a really good idea for three main reasons:
In my opinion, if you go to university, you will learn a lot about certain subjects. You get a good education so it’s easier to find a job. You meet a lot of people and you learn to be more independent as well. Students that go to university learn more about life.
I think that it’s a good experience for everyone, so if you can, you should take the opportunity and go there. It’s also a good possibility to live far from your parents and share a flat with friends.
Finally, there are a lot of careers to choose, such as medicine, law, architecture and so on. Choose the right one for you and go for it.

UNIT 6. Write a reply letter to Amanda telling her about your house and what you do at home.

Student’s Address
Tuesday, 5th March 2013
Dear Amanda,
Thank you for your letter. My name is Mario, I am 13 years old and I live in Los Barrios, Cádiz, a little village near Algeciras. The weather here is nice and in summer time we always go to the beach.
I live in a yellow house with my parents, Jose A. and Paula, and my brother George.
Our house isn’t particularly big. As you get into, there is the hall and the living room, then the kitchen and the toilet.
Upstairs, there are my room, George’s room, my parents’ room and the bathroom. I have my own room. If I shared it with my brother, I would get crazy! I like the garage, because we have more space to play some sports. Apart form this, in summer time our garage is very cool. I don’t like my garden because it is very small. If it were bigger, I would have a pet.
I like playing Xbox 360 games, watching films and staying with my friends at home.
See you soon,
Mario

Student’s Address
5th March
Hi Amanda,
Thank you for your letter, I’m really glad. My name is Miguel Ángel, although they call me Migue. I’m 13 years old, and I live in Los Barrios, a small town in the south of Spain. It is quite near to the beach.
I live with my parents and my grandmother, but mainly with my mother, my father only comes at the weekends. He lives in Madrid with my sister, if I could, I would live there. I have got a turtle, its name is Manoli, I love it so much. If I were her, I would prefer living in a bigger place, but I think Manoli is happy living with me. Manoli has been with me for about 6 years. My house is extremely big for us I think. It has two floors and a garage. There is a big garden, where I play with my friends. I like living here because htere are a lot of bedrooms, and I can choose where I’m going to sleep, it’s really funny. I don’t like the living room, it is very cold there.
When I am at home I love watching TV because my TV is very big. I also like spending time in my bedroom playing the piano or drawing.
Kisses and hughs,
Miguel Ángel

——————————————————————————-

UNIT 5. Make predictions about the future. Write a text about the year 2050 and these aspects: school, free time and entertainment.

I think that in 2050 schools will be better and more organized. In our free time we will probably do a lot of travels to so far places in one day. Respect to the entertainment I think that we will do similar sports but with a robot and we will play new games online with friends that live so far.

On the one hand, school will be better because we can study with videophones, we will have digital books, and we will learn the lessons from our house.

In our free time, we will travel to the moon, we will have flying cars and we will probably play with our friends in the sky or flying. Most of the games will be in a computer or in a smartphone.

In the entertainment we will play with advanced consoles. We will probably buy all our clothes online and our clotes will be light and very useful for every situation. We will go to Digital Park.

On the other hand, if we don’t go to school, some people will skip school. There will be some subjects like physical education that we can’t do from our house.

In the future we will lose a lot of sports and a lot of games. People will become addict to mobile phones.

We will become fat. We might go all dressed in the same way and you wouldn’t have our own personality. If we go to a digital park, we won’t have real trees so we can’t breathe oxygen. We will breathe a new artificial substance that doesn’t need the trees to be created.

In conclusion, the world will be better, it will be more comfortable but we will have worst social relations. In 2050 all will change so we can’t know how it will be. All of these are predictions.

By Cristina Mota

 ——————————————————————————————————–

 I think that the year 2050 will probably be a good year because technology will be more advanced. However, I am sure there will be new problems to solve.

On the one hand, students will work at home with computers and there will be teachers who can contact the students. There will be more machines that will do the work for us, so we will probably have an easier life.

On the other hand, children will spend their free time playing at home with computer games. They will not practise so many sports so there will be more health problems. As children will be at home, they will not have so many friends, they will not have a social life.

In conclusion, we might have some serious problems and people will not have to do housework.

By Sergio Relinque

UNIT 2. Write a text about your sport hero.

Eugenia Kanaeva, by Irene González.

I want to write about Eugenia Kanaeva because she is the best gymnast in the world.

Eugenia Olegovna Kanaeva was born in Omsk (Russia) in 1990. Kanaeva is a professional gymnast, her coach is Vera Shtelbaums. She has got a lot of experience, as everyone knows.

Kanaeva has participated in some of the world’s greatest competitions. She’s participated in the Olympic Games twice and she has won twice. She was The World Champion seventeen times and The Europe Champios thirteen times.

Kanaeva is the best gymnast in the world at the moment. She loves rhythmic gymnastics. She works very hard everyday to be a champion, and that’s why she’s my sporting hero.

——-

Yohan Blake, by Diego Ruiz.

I’m writing about Yohan Blake because he’s my sporting hero.

Yohan Blake was  born in Parroquia de Sant James, Jamaica, in 1989. He’s a professional runner. He’s young but he has a lot of experience in trials and Olympic Games. He was accused of drug taking but now he is “clear”. His nickname is “The Beast”.

He has won five Olympic medals, and some championships like Daegu.

His speciality is 100 and 200 metres. He participated in Pekin 2006 in his junior stage.

He’s an example of effort and self-improvement, so he has been an icon in most of countries like his native country, Jamaica.

28th September
 
Dear mum and dad,
I’m having a good time! The Military academy is very hard. We run a lot and we have 200 pushups every day.
I met three cabin mates. Their names are Pedro, Pablo and Adrian. I met Pedro in a nightculb. Pedro is very friendly and cheerful. I met Pablo in a basketball match, he was from the opposing team and I was his rival. He is honest but he is very mean. And I met Adrian in the entrance tests of the military academy. He is very patient and optimistic. We are good friends and every morning we run together.

Lots of love,
Javier Salazar.

UNIT 9. “How I’ve changed”. Write about the changes you have experienced this year. Talk about your school, appearance, friends, and personality.

Hello, I’m a girl called María and I’m going to tell you how I’ve changed.

This year, a lot of things have changed in my life, like school. It was difficult at first but now I prefer Highschool, it is funnier than primary school.

Other things that I’ve changed are friends. This year, I miss a lot of friends, but I have met a lot of new friends. I have never thought I could miss friends that I met since I was six years old.

My appearance hasn’t changed, because I like the way I am.

In conclusion, there are things that have changed for better, but there are things that haven’t changed because they are ok as they are.

By María Gómez Cabral

——————————————————–

Lots of things have changed in my life. I have changed school, I have moved house, etc., but my life is still good.

My highschool’s name is IES Carlos Cano. I’ve made a lot of new friends and at highschool I’ve found my first girlfriend. This year I have a lot of new subjects, and we have to study more. I’ve entered in the bilingual class and most of the subjects are in English!

In my new class, I have made a lot of new friends that I had never met before, and that isn’t all, I’ve made friends of other classes.

Last year I have longer hair, but this year I’ve cut it. I also wear different clothes. I like to wear caps.

In conclusion, my life has changed a lot, and now I like it more.

Dear Sir,
I represent a group called ” Green People”. I am writing to you because we hear that the local council is going to close the best park of our town and you will sell the land to build a motorway.
In our opinion, the motorway is not as important as the park because more or less all the children of the town come to the park to play and have a great time, and there are a lot of motorways near the town.
On Monday we are going to organize a protest, so we will make some wristbands and some posters, and we are going to collect signatures. We hope that you will support us and do not sell the land to buy a motorway.
 
Yours faithfully,
Juan Antonio Herrera

Dear Sir or Madam,
I represent a group called “Students Against Bad Buildings”. I am writing to you because the local council is going to close a park and build a new motorway. If you can stop it, we will appreciate it.
In our opinion, a motorway can damage the environment because there will be more smoke on the road and lots of children walk in the surrounding areas. Anyway, a park is always better for children and young people who play on it.
I am thinking about having a meeting with my group to organize a demonstration in the park with banners and signs. We hope that you will support us and publicize it.
 
Yours faithfully,
Mario Muñoz

UNIT 6: Write a “Story to remember”. Use past simple and continuous, (opinion adjective + fact adjective + noun) and 3 paragraphs to organise your information.

My day a the amusement park. (by Mario Muñoz Torres)
Last month we went to the amusent park “Magic Island”. It was something horrible! We arrived at Seville at 8.00 am and had breakfast in a restaurant.
When we were sitting, the waiter came to our table, and said to us: Would you like the day menu? My mum said: Yes, please.
When the waiter brought me the incredible delicious day menu, I realized that it wasn’t very delicious.
In the plate it was only a mini toast with a worm inside and a glass of milk with a dead fly floating on it!
When we finished our terrible small breakfast we arrived at Magic Island.
Withing all the attractions, there was one called “Anaconda”, which consists of a sort of train riding over water and had a slope of approximately twenty-five metres. When we were going down the slope, I fell into the water and I had to swim to get out.
That day had a really strange bad begining, but had an amazing fantastic end.
——————————–
A bad holidays in Holland. (by Mar Gómez)
Last summer we did tourism to Holland, with my family. It has been one of the most horrible travels we have done. First, we had to sleep in the airport until two o’clock. The trip wasn’t too bad, and once we arrived at the airport of Holland, we went to the hotel. The weather was very bad.
Everyday it was raining. One day started a horrible windy storm. In the night, we wanted to go to the hotel to sleep in our wonderful big room, but our car didn’t start. We had to go to a close bar under the rain, where we could get warm. We rang a taxi and a crane, and when they arrived, we went into the taxi and the crane caught the car. While the hotel was changing our beautiful black car we went to the room to rest and relax. The last day we had a little better luck. The weather of the day was better, but the awful dark sky lasted. It was not raining and so, we could go to see the fantastic big Euratom. It was great!
We love holidays, but our feeling wasn’t so good this time. I think we all want to repeat a travel to forget the stress that we got in the trip. Dad says that this year we will travel only in days with big sun spots on TV: no rain, no wind, and no car please!

UNIT 5: Write about a Legend, a person who did something important in the past and for that he/she is remembered nowadays.

MICHAEL JACKSON by Yasmin Zuliani.

 
Michael Jackson was born on the 29th August, 1958 in Indiana. He started singing when he was very young in a group called The Jackson 5 with his brothers. They became very popular.
 
 
 
In 1971 Michel began his solo career. His music and his dances were famous all over the world, specially the Moon Walk. One of his most famous songs was Thriller. Michael was very kind because he cared a lot for the poor and gave lots of money so they could have food and medicine.
 
 
 
He died on the 25th June, 2009. His fans were shocked and very sad, especially my mother.

—————————————————————————————–

MICHAEL JORDAN by Jorge Muñoz

 
He was the best basketball player in the NBA from 1984 to 2003. He was born on the 17th February, 1963 in New York. He lived in Wimington, North Carolina. When he was at high school he played basketball, baseball and American football, but he only played seriously basketball, because the other sports weren’t easy for him.
 
 
 
His average score was 30,12 pts during his entire career. He played fourteen times the All-Star Game, he was five times MVP of the season, he had two Olympic medals, he was the best defender of the year and the rookie of the year.
 
 
He retired twice: the fist time his father died, so he retired from basketball and started playing baseball, because his father played baseball. After a short time, Michael came to basketball and when he was old for basketball he retired for ever.

UNIT 4: Write a postcard from a foreign city.

Dear Rebecca,
 
I am in New York. I’m having a really good weekend here. First, I visited the Statue of Liberty. Then, I went by bus to Central Park. This morning I went shopping and I bought lots of things and I got something special for you!
I’ve taken hundreds of photos.
I wish you were here.

Dear Jorge,
 
We’re having a fantastic time in Paris! It is a very fascinating and interesting city.
First of all, we arrived in the hotel on Friday morning and, after going for a little walk, we had a rest, because we were very tired.
We went to the Eiffel Tower on Saturday, ate some food and then we looked at the city from the river Seine on the “Bateaux Mouches”. Finally, we went to Disneyland on Sunday, rode in all the atractions and came back to Paris after dinner.
We spent the best days of our life!!!
See you soon.

Unit 3. Write a report.

The best singers in the world, by Juan Antonio Herrera.

This report is about the most popular singers for students. I have the answers from my best friends and I also have answers from other friends.

The best singer for boys is Usher. They like Pitbull and Rihanna too, but a bit less. For girls the best singer is Enrique Iglesias. They also like Usher and Jennifer Lopez. Pitbull isn’t as good for girls as he is for boys.

In conclusion, I think this information is interesting. The most surprising thing is that boys and girls like more or less the same type of music.

————————————————————————

The most popular TV programmes, by María Gómez Cabral.

This report is about the most popular programmes for children, women and men.

The coolest programmes for children are cartoons. The coolest programmes for women are the news, women also like quiz shows and cookery programmes. The coolest progammes for men are sports programmes and the news with a 30%.

In my opinion everybody likes watching TV, and we sometimes watch what other people like.

—————————————————————————————————

UNIT 2. Write an email.

Dear Miguel,
How are you? I am writing this email because I want to tell you my holidays. I’m staying in a room of a hotel and now I am writing what I’m doing in Scotland. I like the monuments, the small castles and the parks but I don’t like the big castles because they are very tiring, although all of them are very beautiful. I’m going to stay here one week and this is the third day.
Here they use to eat a lot of ice cream, fish and chips and hamburguers. The weather is cloudy and rainy but sometimes it is sunny. I’m lucky because this week is going to be sunny. Here there are a lot of lakes and we visit the Ness Lake with its monster Nessy.
What are you doing in this moment?
Write to me soon and many kisses for you.
Bye!

Dear Jorge,
Hi brother! I’m writing you this email from my mobile phone because mum, dad and I are in the Picasso’s museum. I am sorry that you had to stay at home because you are ill.
The museum is very interesting and you can do some activities like painting your own portrait by using a mirror in front of you.
At the moment we are watching a picture and a guide is giving us an explanation about it.
The guided visit and the painting activities are very cool but what I don’t like is that you may get dirty with markers.
What are you doing now? Are you watching TV or going on the internet?
Send me an email and tell me what you are doing!
