The school of Languages of Bermeo has the pleasure to invite you to join us at the International Music Show party. The party is in Kafe Antzokia (Bermeo) on December 12th, 2008. Tickets are available at the school at the price of 5 euros. (The price money is to pay the singers, that's all, it is not for our holidays in the Caribbean, I can promise you).
As regards the groups I don´t know much yet, and I like getting surprises. Some hints, they are varied, from different countries and some of them are from the Basque country.
Here there is a very interesting place to read about how to ask for the time in English. You can listen to it, and you can read the script. I think it is interesting, and very real. Here you have the link:
As you know by now, my name is Ana Rosa. I am a teacher at Bermeo Language School. I teach A1 and B1.2 English. You probably know about me. But let me tell you a couple of things about me.
I absolutely hate getting up before eight o'clock in the morning.
I hate eating vegetables. However, I sometimes eat green beans and spinach.
I don't like cleaning or cooking. Sometimes I cook , but the results are terrible.
I don't mind helping at home or working overtime.
I like my job very much. Some students find English difficult to pronounce. But they make the effort. That is very rewarding for me.
I love singing along when I drive my car. My favourites are country music, and of course, Julio Iglesias. The song called: "rio rebelde" is the top one when I am happy. The duet with Alejandro Fernandez "Dos corazones rotos" is also very nice. People laugh at me when they see me, but I love singing in the car!!
Above all, I absolutely love eating chocolate. It is my secret vice.
And what about you? Please leave a message telling who you are, and how you are.
Bobsleigh is a winter sport invented by the British in 1860. Teams of athletes go down an ice track in a gravity powered sleigh (trineo) . Together with Luge and Skeleton, they are variations of descension on a sleigh. Hey, Santa Klaus himself descends on a sleigh!
In Luge, you descend on a sled. The person lies face-up with his or her feet first. This is done in circuits. Sleds run due to the force of gravity. The rider steers by flexing the sled's runners (similar to wheels) with the legs or by moving the shoulders to make pressure to the other side.
Streetluge Here you can see another variation. This sport is called STREETLUGE, and it is considered a GRAVITY SPORT. Streetluge is a relatively new sport. It is sort of a road-going version of ice luge. Streetluges are non motorised and rely on the force of gravity as a power. On big mountain roads streetluges can reach speeds exceeding 80 miles per hour. They don't have any form of suspension and they are very close to the ground. This provides the rider with a tremendous sensation of speed. Common injuries among streetlugers include: poking elbow bones(taking out the elbow), concussions (cerebral damage), broken fingers, and mashed ankles. Man! This is risky! and it is not a kid's game.
Skeleton luge: Bob Skeleton is a sport where athletes race down a sloped ice track on a small sled. It is different to Luge, here the athletes have their heads at the front, and they steer by leaning and moving their head from side to side or dragging a toe on the ice. The skeletons do not have brakes. Oh what a feeling!!!
Gravity bikes are a relatively new thing. They run by force of gravity. They do not have pedals, not chains. They have (goodness! they should have!) brakes and a bit of suspension. The rest you can imagine.... It flies down the hill!!! . Bikers ride them with their legs flexioned, and their knees leaned on holders similar to pedals. Can you imagine yourself on one , down Sollube? Wo00000w! Awesome!!! ( /o:som/)
This is a beautiful view you can see around here. It is the time of the day when the sun rises in Mundaka. The fog doesn't let us see the other side of the estuary. It looks like magic. No wonder why the Lonely Planet guide includes this place in their year book. I took the picture from http://www.flickr.com/photos/martinuu/, and I wish to thank Martin for the beautiful pictures.
World economics is in danger, and this handshake is important. 20 rich countries meet nowadays in the White House. They want to find a solution to bankrupcy. Zapatero attends the meeting invited by Sarkozy, the french president.
