We are going to learn a few words about the main vocabulary of the subject.

Next class, I will give you  an object related and a piece of paper to draw it. Write a  a post, a short sentence with the word in English  adding your  uploaded image.
For example:

I draw a portrait with soft pencils.

Racing flags

There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. (Julius Caesar, 4.3.249-250) William Shakespeare

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’
For the loser now will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is rapidly fadin’
And the first one now will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’

Another version: Bruce Springsteen "The Times They Are A-Changin'" 1997

Welcome , students, to a new academic year in this Bilingual Project. I wish that activities can be exciting and challenging for you. Our "race" started a week ago and its necessary to give you  some ideas previously. Most races have some general instructions to runners in the minutes before the gun. 

  1. You will continually be asking yourself, "What am I doing here?" Be patient.
  2. You must know why your work is important
  3. The blog is a tool, it isn´t your "enemy". It´s  way to enrich your fluency in English writing and expression.
  4. You need practice writing. We all do.
  5. Pay attention to books and websites references. I won´t allow to use texts or images without mentioning author or where you extracted from.
  6. And finally, respect your fellows´posts. Criticism is good but your comments have to provide ideas and advices in a positive way.

Good luck, "Ready... set... go"?
