A Soldier – Adriana Wright (Upper Intermediate)

Chris Rene

I’ve always liked reality shows, mainly the talent shows. That’s why I first discoverd his music in “The X Factor USA 2011″, a Simon Cowell show. I fell in love with the music he sang in his first audition, it’s called “Young Homie”. Chris Rene almost won the show.

Christopher is a singer that mixes rap with pop music, what makes him such a unique person. Born on December 25th in Santa Cruz, California, he didn’t have a good adolescence, because when he was 13 years old he started to get involved with drugs.

When he went to rehab he was near death, but with the treatment he stopped being addicted and replaced drugs by music.

Nowadays, he is 28 years old and almost one year sober, that’s why he is a really good example to people who are dependent on drugs. He is just like a soldier. He got the third place in the show, but he said that if he had won, he would have spent the money with his son and opening a rehab, because he doesn’t want to see more people destroying their lives.

Elvis Presley – Maria Victoria Meirelles (Upper Intermediate)

Elvis Presley

Apart of being the most famous singer of the 20th century, I belive he was the most beautiful man of all times.

Elvis Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, 1935, but he moved to Memphis, Tennesse, in 1947 to improve his carrer that had already started. He’s known as The King of Rock because he basically invented this type of music, and his voice is considered the most impressive one. That’s why even 45 years after his death we still listen to his music.

He was very handsome, he had an incredible voice and for sometime, a beautiful woman, but even though he had all that, he drugged himself and died at the age of 42.

I first discouvered him because my mum was watching a DVD where he was singing and dancing. I fell in love at the very first time I saw his face. I had heard his name a lot of times before that, but I never had enough curiosity to search about him. But after I saw his DVD, I started to search everything about him.

Elvis wasn’t famous for singing, dancing, ou being that handsome. Of course it counted a lot, but in my opinin, he became the most famous singer of the 20th century because he reinvented music.

The best place ever – Camila Levy (Upper Intermediate)

I love travelling and as always I went to a special place last hollidays. I think every place is special, but this one in particular attracted my attention.

We were travelling around California and we stopped for one night in a place called Morrobay. At night, when we arrived the city was completly closed, but luckly we found a small japanese restaurant which was completly delicious!

In the next morning we saw that we were in a wonderful place, full of unspoilled views and a beautiful landscape. we just loved it!

The nest day, although we were next to the final destination we stopped for two nights in another city called Monterey. We haven’t visited many places there because we prefered to go to Carmel.

Overthere we saw the most beautiful landscape ever! We walked through some rocks and it was so nice because they were almost in the sea. I wish I had a house there to spend all my hollidays, but unfortunatly this won’t be possible at the moment.

Easter, by Ricardo PT 4

I like Easter because I usually travel to a farm. In the farm I ride horses and do rapel.

I eat some chocolate that my aunt does. She always prepares a big table with chocolate. On the table with chocolate there are eggs and candy.  We sit, then we say a prayer.

On this Easter I’m going to stay in São Paulo.

Easter, by André Tartuce – PT 4

I like Easter because I get a lot of chocolate eggs. I usually travel on Easter, but on Sunday I have to lunch with my Family in SP. I usually go to Itu, because I have a house there. I don’t give chocolate to anybody!
This year I’m going to travel to Campos do Jordão, but on Sunday I have lunch with my Family here in São Paulo. I love eating fish and shrimps. For dessert I love La Basque ice cream.
