HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Happy New Year!! We are in 2015!! It’s really awesome how far we are from 2000. In my family we have prepared some traditional meals for these Christmas like my dad’s famous turkey or my mum’s homemade croquettes. All my family came home on 25th December and we ate a lot of food. For this New Year I have some resolutions.

Firstly I’m going to study hard to pass the Selectivity exam, because this year we need to decide what we are going to study to get a good job. Moreover, this exam is also important, because it will decide in which university we will able to enter, and most of us want to go to the University of Granada.

Another resolution that I’m going to try to achieve is to pass my B2 in French and in English, at the Language School in Motril, because it’s better to get it before I go to the university. However, in my opinion it’s more important to learn the language than having a title.

All in all, it will be a difficult year, and I have to work hard. It’s also important to be happy and have good health, so I hope this year will be better than the previous one.

What is Ebola?


Ebola is a virus that was first found in Sudan in the 1970’s. Nowadays we found it in a lot of African countries, but there have also been a few cases in Europe and in the USA. The main problem of this disease isn’t its transmission,the problem is that 9 out of ten people that have had it have died after two or three weeks

Another important fact is that we haven´t got a cure, and the disease has begun in Africa. So, developed countries aren’t given their first “cures” test to these poor countries, like Sierra Leona or Nigeria. 

However, we don’t have to worry about its transmission, because it is by fluids and not by air. It can be transmitted by blood, vomit, saliva, semen or other fluids. But, in Africa this fact is very dangerous, because they have no hygiene and they haven’t got protection clothing. 

In conclusion, developed countries have to do something with this dangerous disease or it will spread. In Spain we have had two cases, but we only pay attention to the issue and its danger when we have a case affecting a Spaniard and not when it appeared in Africa.
