Dirty Dancing

Dirty Dancing

Hello!

I’m going to talk about one of my favourite movies ever, Dirty Dancing wich is known for it’s iconic lift and soudtrack. It was written by Eleanor Bergstein and directed by Emile Ardolino. The movie is about a girl who goes on vacation with her family to a resort and ends up falling in love with the dance instructor. The film stars are Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze, the movie is a romantic dance film.

The action is placed on the summer of 1963, where Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) is on vacation on a resort with her family. The resort has a dance teacher, Johnny  Castle (Patrick Swayze) and Baby develops a crush on him. Then she finds out that Johnny’s dance partner Penny (Cynthia Rhodes) is pregnant and want to have an abbort but the only day she can do it is on a day where she as a show, so Baby starts having dance lessons with Johnny to dance in Penny’s place. As the 2 of them have more dance lessons and Baby beggins to improve, the two start falling in love.

The movie is well acted; the soundtrack is amazing, being the most know song “(I’ve had) The time of my life”;the dance routines are very well performed. The movie is romantic, exciting and emotional, as you are watching it you get attached to the caracters and the story. The ending is fabulous and powerful. If you lik dance movies you will certaintly like this movie. The movie was released in 1987 but never went out of fashion, as in 2009 it had earned $214 million worldwide.

 

By wacthing the film you learn a lesson, stand for what is right not matter what is costs. I recommend you see this movie , you will not regret it, I know I loved it!

 

Summer Camps

Summer Camps

Hi everyone!

My name is Érica and in this post I will talk about summer camps.

There are summer camps for all types of people. If you like technologies you can go to a tech camp; if you are more artistic you can attend an art camp; if you are more sporty and you can’t stay quiet, a sports camp is the ideal for you. In conclusion, you will find a summer camp where you can do what you like.

Summer camps have lots of activities available. You can do many different sports: basketball, soccer, tennis, water sports, archery, canoeing, etc. You can sing, dance, paint. Depending on which type of summer camp you go you can learn new things about computers, play games and more. go camping, fish, learn about the nature and many more.

In summer camps you will learn a lot of new things, learn new skills, improve your independence, become more active, make new friends for life, try new things and most importantly, have fun! In my opinion the only negative aspects of summer camps is being away from your home and family and that the prices can be too high sometimes.

I’ve never been to a summer camp but I would love to go to one. If I went to one, I would want to try new things, live unforgettable moments,make new friends and take lots of photos.

Martin Luther King Junior

Martin Luther King Junior

Martin Luther King Jr was an African American who “fought” for a better world.

He was born on 15 january,1929. He was a minister and activist who was a leader in the civil rights movement. All of his protests were nonviolent. Together with Rosa Parks he led the 1955 bus boycott. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.

Unfortunately he was murdered on April 4,1968 at the age of 38 by James Earl Ray.                   His speech “I have a dream” became famous until today.

He had dreams, and he didn’t give up, he believed in his dreams and fought for them until the day of his death.

He may be gone but he will always be remembered for what he did.

Bea’s Eating Habits

Bea’s Eating Habits

Hi!
I have a healthy diet. For me, food plays a very important role in my life because I like to eat but I I’m careful with the food I eat, with my diet.
On weekdays I don’t use to eat in the morning but I eat at lunch. When I have lessons in the afternoon I usually go to a cafe near the school but sometimes I have lunch at school. Out of school I eat hamburgers and at school I eat  meat sandwiches. I do not have weight problems of weight because I take care .
There are days when I’m an active person but there are other days when I am lazy. I spend a lot of time watching TV, playing games and surfing the internet but I know I spend too much time and it can become harmful to my health.
I´m a member of Instagram and Facebook because I like to socialize with other people.I know that some networks can be dangerous.I play Minecraft, League of Legends and Combat Arms because I like.
We should be be active and take exercise, be careful with what we eat, have a healthy diet.

Eating Habits, Lifestyle and Social Media

Eating Habits, Lifestyle and Social Media

Hi!
I think I have healthy eating habits and lifestyle. Food plays a big role in my life but I still manage to take care of my body and health.
I don’t exactly have constant eating habits because every day I eat different things (except for breakfast) but my daily diet has fruit, meat or fish, milk, yogurts, bread, soup and vegetables. I sometimes eat junk food, the type of junk food I eat more is cookies.I don’t have weight problems, I’m just a little out of shape but to solve that I am trying to do more exercise and to be more active.
To keep fit I play and run with my dog ,so we both do exercise, and sometimes I play a game called just dance on wii where we have to dance (like the name says), it’s great fun! I am a mixture of an active person and a couch potato. In winter I am less active because of the weather. I prefer watching tv than surfing the Internet and playing games but I also like doing that.
I am a member of facebook because it’s very useful to communicate with family and friends that are far away from you. I’m also a member of Instagram because I like taking photos and doing crafts and Instagram is perfect to share my photos and to see many other photos, videos and art. Instagram is also where I read inspiring and interesting quotes that I can relate to.

Having a balanced diet and an active lifestyle is very important. To stay in shape and healthy we should eat a big variety of foods and do exercise regularly.

Having a healthy lifestyle is important but don’t forget to have fun too!
What do you do to stay in shape? And how can you keep fit and have fun at the same time?
Bye!!

Bea’s Favourite Places to visit in Portugal

Bea’s Favourite Places to visit in Portugal

One of my favourite places to visit in Portugal is Belém, in Lisbon. I like Belém because it has many interesting historic buildings and many places to visit.
I always enjoy visiting the Jerónimos Monastery. It’s grand, beautiful and richly-decorated inside. It’s a welcoming place in spite of being so big.. I also like to eat  pasteis de Belém sprinkled with cinnamon. They’re creamy and so tasty!

Another place I like to visit is Sintra. Quinta da Regaleira is a very interesting historic building, a special place with a gorgeous garden.

Érica’s Favourite Places to visit in Portugal

One of my favourite places to visit in Portugal is Sintra.

Sintra is a city located in the district of Lisbon. I like Sintra because the city is rich in history and iconic because of its monuments, such as Pena palace, a 19th century Romantic palace full of colours, its towers are red and yellow. The palace is a Unesco World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal.

Another  interesting monument in Sintra is Quinta da Regaleira, a mysterious place with a beautiful garden, an inverted tower and a cave. A beautiful place to visit in Sintra is Azenhas do Mar, a seaside town with a natural pool, it’s an amazing place to take photos!

Another one of my favourite places to visit is Bombarral, a city located in the district of Leiria.

Bombarral is a beautiful city, mostly known for its amazing garden named Buddha Eden, a huge garden full of Buddha’s statues and many other things. Buddha Eden is a magical and relaxing place were you can spend your day, it’s also a good place to go with your family because you can make silly poses with the statues and the results are amazing!

And these are my favourite places to visit in Portugal!

All the photos of Buddha’s Eden were taken by me.

What do you think of these places?

Time of Freedom

Time of Freedom

The most memorable moment in my vacation was when I went to Cascais Lumia. My worst day was the last day of vacation because I had to go back to school routine. I had to wake up early and so could not sleep till late, I could no longer rest much.

Last summer I didn’t meet a lot of people, I met some of my boyfriend’s and my best friend’s. I spent more time with my best friend, with my boyfriend and 3 other friends. We hung around together, went to parties and had a good time.
In the future in the summer I would like to visit Zoomarine, a water theme park and a conservation center, in the Algarve. I would love to travel to Porto and Brazil to spend time with  my cousin.

Holidays: Time of Freedom

Holidays: Time of Freedom

The most memorable event of my holidays was when I travelled to Monte Gordo, with my grandparents. There we met my uncles, and my cousins that were also there on vacations and all together we saw the Euro semi-finals in a restaurant, it was crazy!! We were 13, and the restaurant was very crowded, but it was great fun!

The worst day of my holidays was the last because my holidays seemed very short, so on the last day I was a bit sad because they were over.

I met many people during my holidays. Some were from my grandmother’s village in Alentejo, and others I met during my trip to Monte Gordo. The people I spent most time with were my grandparents because I went to the Algarve with them. Unfortunately my parents couldn’t go with us because they were very busy. With my grandparents I went to the beach, went to restaurants, walked around and had fun!

In the future I would like to visit an exotic place, like the Caribbeans, or visit Orlando because there are many parks like: Disney world, Universal studios, and a park about Harry Potter. I would like to visit these parks with my parents and my grandparents.
