What do you need?

Hello friends. On this occasion I want to show a conversation that we made in class about what we need to buy when we organize a reunion

Reily's Birthday
Reily, Jeimy and I are in the kitchen talking about Reily's birthday party.

Jeimy: Liz, I'm making a shopping list for tomorrow's party. We have the cake. What else do we need?
Liz: Let's see... We need some snacks. Buy cheese, olives and cookies.
Jeimy: Okay.
Reily: We also need napkins and plastic cups.
Jeimy: And what about drinks? Do we need any?
Liz: No, we don't. We have soda and beer.
Jeimy: Okay. I'm going to the store. See you in a bit.

We talked about what we need to plan the Reily's birthday party. I hope they serve as a model when you need to talk to someone about it. Please leave a comment. Take care. Bye

A poem to my father

Hello friends. Today I want to show you a poem I did to my dad for Father's Day. This is another model that can be used to compose their own verses. This is a poem for my dad, his name is Jesus Rad and is an exceptional person, this is a way to show how important he is for me and I want to share with you.  Hope you like it

My father is...
He is a loving and understanding father
He wonders about how to be better each day
He hears the songs that their daughters sing

He sees the best in people
He wants us to be good people
He is a loving and understanding father
He is a loving and understanding father
He pretends to be an example for others
He feels that everything will be fine

He touches the soul of the surrounding

He worries about the global situation

He cries when injustices occur

He is a loving and understanding father
He is a loving and understanding father

He understands that we make mistakes because we are human
He says that we are responsible for our own happiness

He dreams of seeing his daughters graduated

He tries to be the best dad in the world

He hopes to see their dreams come true

He is a loving and understanding father

This poem reflects everything that I think my dad is and what he wants to be in the future. is a tribute to one of the people I love the most. He is my example, my pride and I am very happy to have a very special fatherI hope you liked. Please leave a comment. Take care. Bye

Two songs...

Hello friends. These are two songs that the teacher showed us in class. The idea is that we listen to melody and also the letter and then give our opinion on it. I hope you like it.

The first song is called ''Price Tag''. Is performed by singer Jesse J. It's a catchy song. I hope you enjoy it.
 ''Price tag''
Here is the link of the song in case you can not see straight 

Well, after hearing the song, I must say: I don'tt like the melody, but I agree with some sentences that are in the lyrics of the song. For example: Money can't buy us happiness, because if we have a lot of money and nobody to love we feel incomplete and unhappy. Can we all slow down and enjoy right now.  The important thing is to live the present and see the beauty of the details everyday. You can't put a price on the life, because life is too precious but sometimes don't realize it

This is the second song called ''I Want to Be A Billionaire'' is interpreted by the singer Travis McCoy and Bruno Mars. I hope you like it.

''I Want to Be A Billionaire''
Here is the link of the song in case you can not see straight 

With this song I feel more identified, I love the rhythm and lyrics. Makes me think that if I work hard can achieve all my goals to be billionaires and so achieve my dream of helping many people. Also reminds me of all people with whom I share all that God gives me.
Well, here I leave these two songs to reflect a little about them.  Please leave a comment. Take care. Bye

Welcome to my blog!

Hi everyone! This is a place where I want to talk a bit about me and some activities to I do in my English class. I'm in level 3. I hope you enjoy reading and commenting on all things that I'll be posting.

My name is Liz Rad. I'm from Caracas, originally. 9 years ago I lived in San Cristóbal, Táchira but now I live in Maracibo, near to the airport. I'm 22 years old.  I study iIndustrial Engineering at URBE and Chemical Engineering at LUZ. This trimester I am taking 7 classes and I am in the 4th trimester.

I love my boyfriend and music, they are my two passions. I sing in a group every thuesday and saturday. I like playing ping-pong, driving my car (I have a green little car),  talking on the phone with my friends and family , hanging out with my boyfriend, pizza, chocolate. I love my family and my pets, I have two dogs and three cats

I hate onions, listening to vallenato and regueton music (because is very noisy), and hot weather. I don't like getting up early on the weekend, violence, war, injustice, and washing the dishes. I can't stand people smoking.

My dream is to travel around the world. Of course, I want to graduate from Engineering School and be a good engineer. I also want to learn to speak English, French, and Italian. I would like to have my own company, help people, buy a house, get married and start a family.

About English, I love to learn new languages. I think English is very important. I listen to music and watch TV in English. It’s a good exercise.. I don't write well and I need to practice more. The most difficult for me is speaking. I want to practice in class and out of class, too. I hope I can make a lot of friends and practice speaking in this class.

Well, This is a little bit about me. Hope you liked it... Please, leave a comment!

Kisses and hugs
