Me gusta el color pero me parece un poco oscuro. Las letras en blanco se leen bien pero me cuesta leer las negras sobre un fondo tan oscuro.

OK. Cambiado a más claro. Y también he cambiado el tipo de letra, porque creo que ésta se lee mejor. Ya me diréis.

Congratulations for this blog!Thanks to Marta for the idea and to Michelle for carrying it out.We shal have the oportunity of sharing our thoughts and comments of "The Woman in White", which is the novel we shall be reading with our 4ths. Mine will be the first: Who thinks that Walter Hartright stands a chance against Mr. Carton? The 5ths can join the discussion as well.

Mr. Hartright DOES NOT STAND A CHANCE with Mr. Carton!!!
One is a normal man, the other is tormented yet capable of wonderful actions. I doubt that Mr. Hartright is capable of sacrifice in the way we saw Mr. Carton doing it in "A Tale.."

I was given a bit of a “Tale of Two Cities” in order to compare Mr Carton’s character with Mr Hartright.
I think that Mr Carton’s manners show a mature and realistic person without loosing his honesty. On the other hand, Mr Hartright behaves like a teenager, is not able to act as what he should be.

I haven´t read “Tale of Two Cities” , but If I have to compare the character of Mr.Hartright with Mr.Carton, according to the page, in my opinion, Mr.Carton proves to be a passionate person, upright and brave with a great personality. However, Mr Hartright is insecure and inmature.

carmen dijo...

I agree with you Susana
Post in the other commentarios please

I had read the Shakespeare's poem about England and I think that it is a beautiful poem, but when I read the Maria's comment, it aroused me curiosity about the Oscar Wilde's tales and I came on The Internet and I read "The nightingale and the rose", and I think that it is one of the most beautiful love's poems that I had read and I agree with Maria about Oscar Wilde's tales.

English also made mistakes.
I’m, so sorry; I know this is not the correct place for this to be posted. But I think this piece of news is really funny and I wanted to share it with all of you. Many times we are very frightened to make mistakes, and for this reason we even avoid speaking. Here we can find the example that it does not matter if you make a mispronunciation. It can even be useful.
Tony Henry was trying to sing the national anthem in Croatian, but reportedly got the words wrong.
Fans say the mispronunciation helped the players relax before the game at Wembley where Croatia beat England 3-2.
The national anthem is written in old style Croatian, and there can be slightly different interpretations in English because it is a very lyrical language.
The line in which Henry slipped up should have been "mila kuda si planina" (You know my dear how we love your mountains).
But what he actually sang was "mila kura si planina" which means "Dear Penis, you are a Mountain" or "My Dear, my penis is a mountain".
Croat players like Manchester City's Vedran Corluka and Arsenal target Luka Modric started looking at each other and grinning when they realised what he was singing.
Croat fan websites have been calling for Henry to be given a medal of honour for helping the players relax, they also want him made an official team mascot for the tournament.
Mate Prlic, publisher of the top Croatian footballing Torcida Magazine said: "It would be great if Tony Henry could join the Croatian team and fans at the European Championship in Austria and Switzerland.
"He obviously relaxed the Croatian players before the match at Wembley and if that's a winning combination why not invite him to join the team at Euro 2008 to keep the winning streak going."
Forgive me for this post, but it’s very funny, isn’t it?
Please could you say to me where can we post things which are interesting or curious, and we want to share with our mates? Thank you very much

A fantastic story, thanks for sharing it with us.
I made a horrible phonetic mistake a my school; I had just arrived andafter a fortnight we had to change our bed sheets, so I went with some of the girls in my form and asked the very surprised and then angry nun if "..I could, please, have my shits?" The more surprised the nun was the more I insisted on having "my shits", then she became angry! When she was on the verge of sending me to he Head one of my form quickly explined that I was foreign and just arrived.

Hello! Two things i want to say: the firt one: I think we´ll discover Miss Halcombre real feelings to Mr Hartright (I would like she is in love to him).

The second one thing: if you have any posibility of read "From Hell" (Alan Moore and Campbell) please do it, is a thriller where the real face of "Jack el destripador" is showed, containing his motivations and philosophy, in the Victorian England epoch and answering to a very interesting question: who creates the world?

Someday ago we read a news in class about Benazir Buttho. Today she has been killed. It is incredible, the bad cruel world where we live, where unreasonableness predominates. It has been a terrorist attack to the democracy, to the freedom and to the political women. She was brave but she is dead. However, we mustn´t lose hope... May she rest in peace.

maría 4ºA dijo...

Hi Maria,

Good idea of posting here!
Have you already thought about a movie??
I propose to see "The Savages", I like a lot the main character!
I wait for your comments!

maría dijo...

The Savages? Perfect! Who is the main character?? ;)

Natalia dijo...

He is the one who won the Oscar last year for Truman Capote: Philip Seymour Hoffman. He's Great!!

maría dijo...

Would you like to go tomorrow? I think it is better because it is cheaper and there won´t be too much people... Do you agree?

Natalia dijo...

I agree with you, tomorrow it's great! What do you thing about Renoir Retiro cinema at 20:30h? And the rest of the people??They will come or not??
