Discussion Essay. Experimenting with animals is immoral.

This topic is very interested to discuss because many people have different opinions about it. Ther are arguments both for and against it.

On the one hand, animals feel pain when humans experiment with them. Humans doesn't worried about the feels of the animals and they only look for their benefit.  
Experimenting with animals is immoral because some animal testing, such as research in to cosmetics, is unnecesary and the people aren't awareness about the bad condition of a few animals testing.

On the other hand, many experiments are necessary to save a lot of lives of human diseases and cure many sick. Scientists have to think that they are doing the best work because they find the way  to save lives.

In my opinion I'm against that the animals be used in unnecessary research and I think it is immoral because animals are too cute to suffer.

Discussion essay -Students should be allowed to take their mobile phones with them to school?

Nowadays, the teachers don't allow you to take your mobile phones with you in any school and there are many different opinions about this:

One the one hand,  children should carry the mobile with them in case  some emergency happens . In addition, they could have it but leave away from them to avoid temptation.When mobile phones are prohibited at school, students feel more eager to bring their phones. Everybody knows that things forbidden are more attractive.

On the other hand, today, there have been many problems caused by children who take photos to their teachers and other children who have stolen money, phones.. and that is why mobile phones have been prohibited at school.

To sum up, the mobile phones should be allowed but under your own responsibility, knowing what may happen.

Discussion Essay

Professional footballers are overpaid
Many professional footballers paid too much money for their work.

On the one hand, the work of a footballer does not have the same effort as the work of a builder. Nevertheless the work of a builder is much more risky and dangerous, but unfortunately charges less than a footballer. 

But on the other hand there are also many players who are supportive and lend some of their money to hospitals or other social sites economic problems.

To sum up, I believe that footballer should charge less, nonetheless, this review will cost much take just

Discussion essay

MORE PRACTICAL SUBJECTS SHOULD REPLACE THE SUBJECTS WE ARE STUDYING NOW

Nowadays, many people are studying subjects that will be useless in the future for him or her. There are arguments for and against replacing those subjects.

On the one hand, some subjects are being studied at school and they will be useless and forgotten. These useless subjects could be replaced for more practical subjects for our future careers . If you study for the degree you want, you should choose the subjects useful for these studies and should not have to study the subjects you hate as this can be bad for you and your concentration. People always say that if you study what you like, you'll obtain better marks. This can be a good advantage.


On the other hand, many people think that all the subjects could be nice for the future. Changing some subjects could be a disadvantage for the life of someone, because many people have got problems to develop in life and those people should study the most general subjects without any possible choices. This is because you have to be trained before you can choose your subjects.

To sum up, I believe that more practical subjects should replace the subjects we are studying now because it is a waste of time to study subjects you will not see ever again in your life. I think students should be allowed to choose their own subjects  (Biology, Physics, Languages, Geography, History...). Nevertheless, some people have no idea what they like in life and this can be a problem for them. I think we do not have to live to work, but we have to work to live.

Discussion essay

Animals should not be kept in zoos
Many people have different opinions about keeping animals in zoos. There are arguments for and against it.
On the one hand, zoos are like prisons, it is sad that animals are kept in cages, they can not be free.


In addition,  we make them feel pain and they are often traumatized and  animals suffer like humans. Poor animals!!
To sum up, I strongly believe that animals should be kept only for necessary research not just for pleasure and we could keep them just for a short time. I love animals!

My favourite song

'Don't you worry child' by Swedish House Mafia, is my favourite song because it reminds me of people who I care and love.

This song makes me feel happy me when I want a party but I don't feel like having it. Or just when I need to forget the problems. Music is never bad for us, it opens our minds and turns off the world.

Here is the song:


Discussion Essay

ONLY PUBLIC TRANSPORT SHOULD BE ALLOWED IN CITIES.


There are some advantages and disadvantages f having only free public transport in cities.

On the one hand, the use of public transport helps the environment to avoid the car’s pollution. It also helps to improve urban mobility avoiding traffic jam.

On the other hand, some disadvantages are: 
  
   - Sometimes, the transport is saturated so you are not allowed to get in.  
   - Poor hygiene. 
   - You have to pay if you want to use the transport wherever you go.


To sum up, I think public transport would make a better mobility in the city, despite all disadvantages, it is good for our travels.

My interview with Rihanna

Some weeks ago, a singer who I look up to, Rihanna, came to Madrid, Spain, to give a concert.  I was excited because a TV program gave me the opportunity to do her an interview, so I travelled to Madrid to meet her.

When I first saw her, I asked her how her journey was. She told me that It was really long and she was very tired in that moment. While other girls and boys were asking her some questions, I took those minutes to take her a picture with my mobile phone. When it was my turn again, I asked Rihanna if she had planned visit the city or just chill out until the concert, so she replied me that she couldn’t go back to USA without seeing the beautiful city. She also said that she wanted to visit Barcelona but she thought she wouldn’t have enough time so she would come back to Spain soon. I couldn’t believe what she was telling me, it means, I will be able to see her again.

Finally I asked her if she felt like doing the concert to make people happy which the answer was that doing concerts was the best thing she had done in all her life because for those hours people who go to listen and see her is happy and only think to enjoy forgetting problems.

Rihanna said that she loved seeing smiles from the stage.

My interview

Last week when I went to visit my grandfather in Sevilla I saw two contestants of a program TV “Big Brother”; their names are Carlos and Gonzalo Montoya, they are twins.

I asked them if they liked that everybody knew them and they told me that sometimes it was tiring.

I asked them what was the best experience that they had had in the house and they told me that best experience had had been when they had entered the house for the first time.

I asked them what was their opinion of the program and they told me that it was the best program and told me to participate.

I asked them if they had felt uncomfortable  because of the cameras and they told me that when you have spent a week in the house you forget about the cameras.

I asked them if they wanted to continue on the TV and they told me now they wanted to spend time with their family.

That was my interview with the twins, I felt very happy because I love them.

Discussion essay

Oral exams are better than written exams

Many people think that oral exams are better than written exams.There are arguments both for and against them.

On the one hand, doing oral exams prepares students to be able to express better and to speak in public and not be afraid of talking in front of many people.

On the other hand, making oral exams is a difficulty for many people who have problems for talking in front of many people,  because they are nervous and the do not show all that they know or even they could be in white.

To sum up,I believe that the exams should be written as usual because it ies easier for everyone.

My favourite song

One of my favourite songs is Tiempos-Farruko 




 

Discussion essay

 Street market clothes against brand clothes

Nowadays many people because of the economic problems go to the street markets to buy clothes. These clothes are little valued because they have not a well-known brand even though they are nearly identical.

On the one hand, this kind of clothes is cheaper and you can find anything, shoes, bags, dresses, trousers, etc. Another advantage of street markets is that they are very large and can be found in almost every district.

On the other hand, in  street markets there are many people and some of them are thieves who use the opportunity to get some money. In addition most of these clothes are often stolen from shops and this means that they lost money.

To sum up,  the street markets are good places to buy clothes but we shouldn't abuse them.

My interview with Don Omar

A few years ago I went with my parents to Colombia and in those days there was a Don Omar's concert . He was my favourite singer and so  we went and we could make him an interview. I asked him some questions.

First, I asked him if he could give me an autograph and he give me a signed CD. Then I asked him how he had thought in to be a singer and he answered that he always had heard reguetton and he love it.

I wanted to know if he is flirting a lot and he said to me that this was true but he only loved his wife. I was very sad because I had lost my opportunity. After that I asked him if he knew how to dance his songs and he answered that he tried  but he couldn't do got it.

Finally, I asked him if he wanted to come to live to Spain and he told me that it was interesting but he couldn't because his family lived there.




My interview with Mario Vaquerizo

Last week at the Emperador Hotel, in Madrid, Mario and I met, at the moment we became friends. He arrived with his straight hair, his black leather jacket and a beer in his hand.
When we were sitting I asked him many things.
I asked him how he saw himself. He replied he saw himself as a good person too hippie, who loved peace and love and he said “What I want for me also I want for others”.
Then I asked him about his music group called Nancys and he said they would write a new different song  but also funny like the song called Peluquitas.
As I was also interested in the topic of love, I asked him about his marriage to Alaska, he told me that he is very sissy, but Alaska has been one of the best things that he has happened in his life.
Speaking a bit of him and his wife,  he also spoke about his TV program on MTV, he told me he loves the cameras and is making this program about his life where the people can enjoy themselves with his life.

To finish we drank a beer and we continued talking and sharing laughs together.


Are private schools better than state owned schools?



Many people have different points of view about what kind of education is better,  
Nowadays, in most developed countries there are thousands of schools or colleges to choose which can be private or public schools.

On the one hand,  state owned schools are free for everybody and they do not make exceptions with anyone. Besides, they help students to be in contact with all type of people and it will be the context which they will face in the future. Nonetheless, classes are too crowded.



On the other hand, private schools require a monthly payment which sometimes is very high. That is why students who study in private schools normally belong to families which have a high economic level. Nevertheless, private education is more personal, for example, students are allowed to choose other kind of subjects that they can consider "more practical". In addition, they are thought to put into practice what they learn, for example, by writing essays.

To sum up, education is an essential right for everyone, therefore, people should support a quality public education which prepares people for the near future. Moreover, state owned schools system should adapt to each student, and dedicate to them more personally.

My favourite songs

My favourite songs are "Gasolina" by Daddy Yankee and "Yo soy tu gatita" by La Factoria. I love these songs because when I  am sad, I hear them and I forget everything, it makes me want party and I dance it a lot .These song have been my favourite ones since I was a  child.


My interview.

Last weekend I went to  Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for have an interview to Malcolm James McCormick known by his stage name Mac Miller. He is an American rapper.



I started the interview asking him at what point in his life he decided to dedicate his career to the music so he answered me that at first he did not take seriously to sing, but when he heard that hip-hop was like a job he took it seriously and he has not stopped since he was fifteen.


After I asked him which was the first song he recorded and with which record label and he asked that it was Rostrum Records and the first mixtape was the K.I.D.S in August 2010. He also told me that his first album was Blue Side Park that came out in November 2011.



Since I asked him if he has ever came to Spain and he answered yes, he came once to Madrid with a friend and he liked it very much, he told me that he would like to return soon and visit other cities in Spain.

Finally I asked him which song he believed that made him famous and his answer was Donald Trump.

I considered my interview finished here because I had to return to Granada. I really loved to make the interview because he was very nice and funny



Discussion Essay.

         Single-sex schools are better than mixed schools. 


Decades ago, single-sex education was the only way to go. Then, co-education became popular as we tried as a society to strive for equality of the sexes.

One advantage to be in single-sex schools is that the effort is appreciated, there is greater competition between students and they get better marks.

On the other hand, one of the disadvantages of single-sex school is that when a student from that type of school goes to a mixed school, they can have problems with the rest of the people. For example, one student at the university who has come from a single-sex school can find it strange to fit in with the classmates and talk with the other sex because they didn't use to do it.

To sum up, I think that mixed schools are the best choice for education because students can have relations and show their point of views between them

My interview.

Last week when I went to visit my aunt in Madrid I had the chance to go to a Noel Gallagher's concert (he was a member of Oasis till they split). During the concert I saw his manager, he was sitting next to me and I asked him if I could go to the backstage and do an interview when the concert had finished and he said I could, but only for a few minutes.

First of all I asked Noel how his life had been after he decided to start a solitary career and he answered me that his life hadn't changed too much, just only that nowadays he didin't have to work under pressure like on the best days of Oasis.

I asked him that what he would have done if he wasn't a singer and he replied me that he loved music, so just definitely, he would work in a job that was related to the music.

I asked him if he thought that Oasis would be back in one future and he told me that who knew, and that it didn't depend on him, rather on fate and on all the members of the group, and maybe some years later we may have a new CD of them.

Finally, I asked him if would return to Spain soon and he said to me that maybe not in a concert but that he was sure to be back here soon and have a holidays with his family.

That was my interview with Noel and I won't forget that day because it was one of the best days of my life.


Prisons should be abolished.

Many people have strong views about that the prisons should be abolished. There are arguments both for and against it.
On the one hand, the prisoners could be more comfortable in their houses. They could look after their sick parents. They will pay their condemns doing community services like pick up dog's poo or fanning to the councilors when they have hot in the summer.
On the other hand,the thieves could steal again or the murderers could kill all people until finish the human race. The good people could be in danger and this would be unfair.

To sum up, I believe that the prisons shouldn't be abolished because the murderers must carry out their condemns. I just abolish prisons to impose the death sentence.



A new law about tobacco



Everybody has different opinions about this law

On the one hand there are people  that  are against this law because they say that the people can smoke if they want to, and the government don´t have to  put laws that don´t allow people to smoke in public places

On the other hand there are people that  are in favour of this law. They think that it´s good for the people that smoke and it is also good for the people that don´t smoke because they don´t have to smell the smoke

To sum up I think that if you want to smoke, you can smoke and if they don´t want to smell of tobacco, they can go to other places.
Oral exams are better than written exams

Everybody has a different opinions about this.

On the one hand, exams oral help students to lose the fear of talking in front of a whole class, and is better and faster talking, so I can finish your exam at time

On the another hand,written exams help students to write propely and they have more time to think the anwers of the questions.Besides, students express themselves better by writing

To sump up,I think written exams are better because I get nervous when I talk in front of the people of my class, I prefer writing instead of talking


Professional footballer are overpaid

Many people have strong views about the professional footballer are overpaid . There are some arguments both for agree and disagree.



On the one hand is good the salary for the footballers because they can make the campaigns to promote the sport and can also serve organizates image to charities because they are famous and can make people see that you can help many people.





On the other hand is bad this salary because there are more people more important but not famous doing labor more important for example the teacher: teach the future generations, the surgeon: salvage a lot of lifes, the firefighter and police: keep our security.




In my opinion the professional footballer are overpaid, and I think his salary should be lower because their labor to only entertain their fans and should not have advantages for being famous.
