Dear Sirs,

I’m writing to give my opinion about the new green zone in the city, also known as Central Park, between North train station and Giorgeta Bridge.

On the one hand, I think that this area could improve its appearance and connectivity. Nowadays, the railway track and the bridge are obstacles to pedestrians.

On the other hand, I have heard about the cost of this project and, in my opinion, it will be too much. There are more areas in the city with green zone problems, and I think that it would be better to spend the money not only on this project, but also to analyse and choose some other projects in order to improve our city in several areas.

To finish, I would also like to indicate another green zone project: I usually run on the new runners’ track made in the river park, so I think that it could be a good idea to link this to others outside of the river in order to have a “running ring” in Valencia.

Yours faithfully,




Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to give my opinion about the new green zone in the city. My concern is that there are few places where families can spend time together. So, a park for all ages would be a good idea.

To start with, I think that the old factory could be reconverted into a textile museum. Old photos, machinery and manufactured products could be exhibited there. Also, the port area could be renovated including new buildings for restaurants and cafes.

Finally, the abandoned houses could be demolished and a big park area could be built in this area. For instance, there could be a skateboard area, public gardens and a children’s park. Of course, all of these areas could be connected by a cycle path.

I would be grateful if you could make it happen.

Yours faithfully,




Hi everyone. Today I’m going to tell you about my eating habits and how I can improve them. Usually I only have three meals, and I don’t eat any fruit. In addition, I have sleep disorders so I drink a lot of coffee all the mornings because I need caffeine to work, and I have a lot of tasks to do. People tell me that my eating habits may be the reason why I have my sleep problem. I think that I ought to eat five or six times per day so I would feel less hungry during the day. Also, two of these meals should be fruit, because fruit has sugar, and it is energetic. Moreover, I should stop drinking coffee, and I ought to start drinking tea, because tea has less caffeine than coffee.




My school had a lot of rules. Some of the rules were reasonable, but many were not.
One strange rule was that we couldn’t wear sports clothes during classes, we could only use this kind of clothes during gym class, so we needed to change our clothes quickly when we finished the gym class because we couldn’t arrive late for the next class. It was so hard.
Finally, another rule was that all the students had to use the same school materials, we used the same pens, for example, and the brand and model were the ones that the school wanted. I really hated this rule because it was difficult to know the owner of things, you or another student, I wrote my name on my things, but there were many girls with the same name as me at school.




I think that USB pen drive will be gone in 25 years. I mean, who actually needs USB pen drives any more? I have all my files and documents in the cloud, thanks to internet I can have all my information on the web, and I can have my folders available anywhere and any moment I want. It’s a lot easier to email my files straight to my friends, colleagues, etc. And if internet is not enough for you, you can also use smart phones, laptops, computers and tablets to save your documents. Currently, you can keep a lot of information in these devices because they have a lot of memory integrated.




I nominate Olympic synchronized swimmer Ona Carbonell Ballestero for the best sportsperson award. She is Spanish and she was born in Barcelona in 1990, currently she is the captain of the Spanish synchronized swimming team. She won her first medal at the 2007 World Aquatics Championships, when she was 17. Moreover, she won her first Olympic medal at just 22 years of age. She is a very successful sportswoman because she really works hard. She usually trains for 5 hours every day, including weekends. She’s an inspiration to young people because she shows them how important discipline and hard work are to achieve your goals. Therefore, my vote is for Ona Carbonell.
