Autumn

Feedback 
(Original post at La Letra 15)


Autumn (or Fall in American English) is traditionally the third season of the year. It is time for leaves to fall and time for ocher, sienna, orange and reddish colours to flood the landscape. Autumn also means we are back to school and for many, just as at New Year's time, it is the beginning of new cycle, new plans and new resolutions:quit smoking, trying to study a foreign language, start working out in a gym...

SMS Language Quiz

Feedback 


When we send an sms in Spanish, we usually make words shorter for space saving, for example:

Bss = besos        Msj =mensaje      Salu2 = saludos

And of course, the same happens in English! 10 points, as usual, to the first ESO 1 student who can write this sms conversation in full English and emails the answer to us HERE

-HRU?
-I’m GR8, I HV a D8 2nite!
-OMG! HV fun

Dangers of Careless Internet Surfing

Feedback 
What is the name of your children? What was the price of your house? How much money is there on your bank account? How much did you spend on clothes last month? What is your bank card code number? Your entire life is online, and it may be used against you. That is why you have to be vigilant.

Dave, a grey haired man with a spiritual look on his face, is a fortune-teller. Or better said: he pretends to be a fortune-teller. In fact, he is an actor who constantly gets his information from a small microphone in his ear. The people who provide him with information, are hackers wearing a balaclava and hiding behind a shabby curtain. They are constantly screening public websites for information about the unsuspecting visitors waiting in line for a consultation with this medium. The things they find, are truly spectacular.

(Post taken from Zen Pencils)

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was an American writer, poet, philosopher and one of the leading figures of the transcendentalism movement. Besides writing Civil Disobedience, which inspired such revolutionaries as Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jnr, Thoreau is most well-known for his book Walden, in which he recounts the two years he lived in a small cabin in the woods near Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts. Thoreau used the time to immerse himself in his writing and to live a more simple and self-sufficient life. As he put it:
