OUR GOLDEN BOY CALDERON QUITS NBA

José Calderón is a Spanish well-known basketball player who played for a few years in the NBA team called Toronto Raptors and who has played many matches for our Spanish national team. He born on 28th September (1981) in Villanueva de la Serena (Badajoz).He is 1.91 metres tall and he weighs 95kg.

Jose Calderón began his proffesional career in "Diputacion Foral Alava", a small team of second division (1998). The following year, he was hired by the CB Lucentum Alicante (1999-2001). On 3rd August 2005, he joined the Toronto Raptors as playmaker. During the 2006-2007 season he managed to win the NBA Atlantic Division championship.On 7th December 2006, he suffered a terrible back injury and had to be carried off the field on a stretcher.

Jose Calderón announced that he ended his career with the Spanish national team. A career that began in 2002 and in which the playmaker from Extremadura, has won a total of eight medals, becoming one of the best game directors game in the history of Spanish.

In my opinion, Jose Calderón is one of the best baketball players. It's a shame that he won't play for Spain any more. José Calderón will be one of few who will always be remembered always and of course many of this peers; Sergio Llull, Pau Gasol, Felipe Reyes, Ricky Rubio, Juan C. Navarro, Sergio Rodríguez, Rudy Fernandez..etc. Although the best without doubt for me is Pau Gasol.

AN INFORMAL LETTER

                                                                                                         S. Labradores St.
                                                                                                         Salobreña.




Dear Susan,
This summer, I went with my parents and my sister on a trip to Portugal. There, I had a great time, there were gorgeous beaches and the food was delicious. When I was in the car I always listened to music it's one of the best feelings in the world. I love it! The languague of Portugal is very nice and I'd love to learn it. Next year I would like to visit the island of Madeira. People say it's the best place in Portugal.


This summer, I went to English and Math classes because I failed these subjects in June. In the morning I went to class and some evenings I was with my friends and we went to the beach, watch a movie. We love watching movie at home at night.
In late August I was in Zurgena (Almería) in the village festivals my mother. There every night I handed out with my friends and stayed until ten o'clock, but this year I was earlier.


I wish my new school year were not so tough and overwhelming for me. I want to get organized and  can't ge together work duties exams. Also, I want to pass my exams this year I hope that the subjects don't become boring.
SUMMER IS BACK!

See you soon,
Alba.

MY TOWN- 50 YEARS AGO AND NOW- BY ALBA

I live in a town in the south of Spain. 50 years ago the town was very different.

It was much smaller and the sea came to Lobres. It only had houses, there weren't any buildings. Now there are some blocks of flats. There were very few shops. but now there enough for all town.

Transport is similar. There was a bus station and taxis, altrough there were very few, but now there are many. Before there were many cars, only the people with more money town.

Nobody in my family lived in the town 50 years ago. But I think that there wasn't much to do then. It would a cinema, an health centre, a café... It woud also a museum and a castle. The castle exist now.

In conclusion, life beforewas harder and poorer, but now it's all in need.



                                                 BEFORE   
     

                                     
                                                                    NOW

THIS IS ME BY ALBA

To begin with, I'm going to write about my image.
I don't think I'm particular trendy. I usually wear jeans, a slipper and a top. I wear a tracksuit twice a week. In formal days, I wear dresses, skirts, overalls, heel..I never wear make-up, only in formal days. I usually wear jewellery.

There are three things that I love and now I'm going to talk about them.
My favourite day is Saturdat. Because I can saty up late because the next day Sunday. I also love going out with mu friends for dinner or whatching scary movies. The third thing I love is my dog! That's very cute and playful.

On the contrary.
I don't like false friends. The second thing I hate is having arguments with my sister, for stupid family matters thigs. The third thing I hate is studing, but thanks to this in the future I will be able to work.
