Online Language test

Pilar Pando, our language teacher, decided to give us an online test. We had to watch an extract from the movie “Cien Años de Perdón”. Afterwards, we had to imagine that we were reporters and we had to write a crime report based on the events of the video.


Thieves stole bank in Valencia

A band of thieves succeeded in stealing a large sum of money in a bank in Valencia. Two policeman, Mike and Toby, are investigating the crime.

The gangster and the murderer Spencer Hastings and three guys robbed the bank to steal as many safety boxes as they could, Mike deduced. Toby affirmed that the criminals were actually robbing one box, the one from Lucy Montgomery. «She was a member of the government who slipped into a comma after an accident , inside her box she left thousands of checks of one thousand dollars each» Peter Smith, the leader of the bank, testified.

Three men and a woman were found in a van, in Street 17, with the same amount of checks which were stolen. The Police leader, Robert Perkins, took the passengers to the police station. The three accused men were plead innocent, and one of them exclaimed «It was her plan, we were just her accomplices». Toby guaranteed that they didn’t have an alibi, because they were inside the bank at the time the crime happened, so they were guilty.

Authorities decided that Spencer Hastings will be sentenced to life imprisonment, because she had killed more than twenty guys. The solicitor John Cyrus pronounced that the three men were also going to be in jail, but for three years only, because of their intention in committing the crime.

Nazi Germany

On History class, we are studying the topic of Nazi Germany. Our assignment consisted on spliting in groups and making presentations about the subdivision of topic each group was asigned. I was part in two different groups: in the first one, Margarita Muller, Ines Galmarini and me had to prepare the presentation about the Persecution of Minorities. We used the tool powtoon and we included information from our history books and the one from Margui’s sister to present this topic. We also added a diary entry, two videos and one quote to expand it a bit more. Meanwhile, in the second group I was part of, Lola Villegas Argento, Maria Roggero and me were assigned to prepare the pressentation about  Opposition towards the Nazi party. We did 3 diary entries explaining the three most important reasons about why there was so little opposition in Germany. I hope you like both presentations!







Kristallnacht: Night Of Broken Glass


The day after Kristallnacht the teacher said:

» Don’t worry about what you see, even if you see some natsy things which you may not understand. Hitler wants a better Germany, a clean Germany. Don’t worry, evrything will work out fine in the end.»

Nazi Treatment of Gypsies




After we attended all the presentations about Nazi Germany, Jeronimo’s father came to our school to talk about that topic, so that we could learn more about the Nazis and their victims. He explained us: the things the Nazis made in the concentration/death camps, how the people lived in the ghettos, what the Nazis did to take all the Jews away from their camps, the final solution, the difference between Holocaust and Shoah and, of course, other things as well. To explain this, he prepared a presentation with many pictures, which were taken when he went to visit those camps. I really like his presentation because I learned lots of new things that I didn’t know before, which are very important to know now a days. It was a very interesting way to learn new things, because the one who explained this to us was a friend’s father and wasn’t a stranger. I hope we’ll have another presentation like this soon!



On Wednesday 28th , we went to “El Museo del Holocausto”. When we arrived, we saw a man’s testimony who survived from the Auschwitz concentration camp. That man told us his life after the final solution, how he had managed to escape from there, and finally, how he had gone to live to Argentina with his two brothers. He told us some anecdotes, for example; the fact that his main desire was to survive each single day; how his friends and him asked for some extra breads to have enough energy to live that day; how one of his friends helped him when he was almost dying, how he came to Argentina and how terrible he felt to know that he survived and his friends didn’t. Afterwards, the woman showed us the whole museum, which was very interesting as well. I like the museum because it’s very easy to understand. I also like the sources it has, for example, the broken glasses from Kristallnacht, the doll dressed up with the victim’s uniforms and the real camp victim’s uniforms. However, I don’t like it that much because I don’t like the things the Nazis did to innocent people and that make me feel very sad and oppressive.

Lenny told us to take pictures of the museum, and afterwards, make a collage. Here it is mine! I hope this collage help you to understand what the museum is like and my feelings towards this topic. 




After having studied passive forms,  Pilar, our language teacher, told us to write a crime report using at least three passive constructions.  We had to choose one headline, between the ones she gave us, to write it. We also had to Include the vocabulary we learnt in connection with crimes.


Mom pleads not guilty to setting home afire with kids inside

Last Wednesday, In the suburbs of San Fransisco, An American woman was accused of setting a house on fire with her children inside. She was charged with arson.

Police officers, communicated that the woman, Lucie Rogers, had plead not guilty. Her neighbours stated that she was preparing dinner before the incident happened. Lucie poisoned her husband, David, due to the fact that she suffered from domestic violence. When she was interviewed, she confessed that she had poisoned her husband because of this reason.

The reporter, Charles Levingston, interviewed the criminal and affirmed she was only planning on hurting her husband, not her children. Police officers, found out that David wasn’t inside the house at that moment, since witnesses spotted him going to the market to buy some drinks. So when Mr. Rogers, her husband, entered the house, he would eat the food in a hurry because he was going to be very hungry, and the poison was going to work effectively.

Robert Smith, the police leader, claimed that when David entered the house, he noticed that Lucie had left the oven on and he could see that it started a fire that went from the kitchen to the living room, so he run away from the house. Lucie, few minutes later, had the same reaction, leaving her children alone in their rooms. In the court, she desperately affirmed, «it was an accident, David and I could escape but the fire trapped my children. I didn’t want to harm them».

Authorities decided that the criminal must spent at least 3 years in prison. However, Robert thinks that if she has a good solicitor, her sentence is going to be shorter. Levingston, on the other hand, analysed the relationship between Lucie and David and stated he must go to jail too, since he abused and mistreated her.
