MY ENGLISH PROGRESS FROM 2008 - 2010

As long as we’ve been in high school we’ve worked in different ways of learning. Today we are in the final weeks of all our english high school studies and it represents we are so stressed and excited because of the final exams. But all isn’t negative, still we are working with blog and portfolio sources we can see our improvement in the two years of batxillerat. (What an improvement!)

Firstly I want to compare my first doccument of all my english studies: my first e-mail sended to my first of batxillerat teacher, Gemma. You can see this composition in this web link:

http://titorogerpf.blogspot.com/2008/11/fist-e-mail_04.html



On my point of view in this first e-mail I can see different ways of improvement I’ve followed to the final one I’ve done, like the long of compositions or the more presence of past and passive sentences. In other way, I think my vocabulary and obviusly maturity have improved a lot. You can see what I say between the past link and this one:

http://titorogerpf.blogspot.com/2010/05/influence-of-psychologists.html

There is an enormous change, isn’t there? Step to step I’ve improved all ways I use to learn this special language which is spoken and learnt around all the world. So I only think that these two years of Batxillerat have been the better way we’ve could use to improve our english skills.

We’ve talked about writting, but what abou oral english skills? Unfortunately I think I’ve only improved only on the way of imagination while I was speaking, fluency. Nevertheless I’ve to say my last oral presentations haven’t been better than the first.

For this reason I think my first oral presentation has been the better I’ve done in Batxillerat, and the mark reflect it:

Front of last one:

http://titorogerpf.blogspot.com/2010/03/oral-presentation-history-of-family.html

The main reason has been the lot of work and probably the less work to learn in by memory how other persons have done. But I’m happy with all work we’ve done, I don’t speak individually.

To conclude, myself and other my classmates have done a lot of work these years to improve which is the main language in world and the way how to comunicate with other countries or persons and cultures.

Influence of psychologists

When we think about the word psychologist immediately we think about a person who could help us. Someone whom through speaking, can determine what is our psychological problem.

Obviously we know that we have a problem in our lives the first thing we are thinking about is to go to someone on this "mind doctors". For this reason we can say psychologists influence our society with their knowledge about mind and their experience.

Nevertheless, what could happens when someone of this kind of people use their own opinions without psychological knowledge? We leave to fall ourselves in hands of a man that can use us like dolls, like he wants.

To conclude, we can say psychology is a risk we have to depend on if we are in serious problems, but in general and it is my opinion, we should no leave ourselves in hand of only one person.

Oral presentation: History of the family - A look to the past

To start with the Presentation, I don't used any powerpoint as a resource like all my companions have done, my principal resource was be a geneogolist tree I print of all my family at complete.

Referring to
Body Language & Eye contact part I still move my hands so much. At the beginning I was sit down because of my nervous but early I stood up and shows with more expressive movements what I wanted to say.

As the presentation was about my research project, the
Structure was really good. I introduced the topic, spoke about my objectives, explained some theory followed by a practical part, and I finished with some conclusions. I also used some markers to help audience follow along.

The
Content I think was very good, because it shows all my long work I've done last year working hard to my research project.

As for the
Language, the grammar was correct but sometimes I've done mistakes its could disappear next time, in my perspective I see it was clear enough to follow.

And the
Pronunciation was comprehensible I think, but sadly I was so embarrassed and nervous because some times I don't find words to explain something that appeared in my mind at the moment. Furthermore I have to improve my intonation because sometimes it was hard to comprehend.

Like Lourdes has said, I feel so nervous in this oral presentation and it's a think that impress me because I don't feel so nervous normally. Although I think this presentation could has be so long much better and for this reason I don't expect to have any good mark, if not only six points or similar.

Finally, my oral presentation to show you the work that could has be much better:

Pride & Prejudice's forum

Forum 1:

To Katy's surprise a boy is commenting in this forum. First of all I believe what Katy's said about Romanticism is completely right. In our days it seems that the only way a person can be romantic is saying nice adjectives to his partner and enjoying sweet and tenderness with someone. In other centuries a romantic person was someone who wishes the suicide!

In other way, I think this kind of book can like to boys or girls indeferently, it depends, how Marta has said, with the kind of person they are. Certainly, girls are more followers of love stories but the reason could be that there are different ways to see love.

Probably in girls it seems in a story like Pride and Prejudice, like "Crepusculo", but specially for me there isn't a way better than the sight with a person or, if you prefer write it, a poem where we can reflect all our feelings. I'm not a girl and I like love stories, but they could be boring at the end because Love has been the main theme of writings of lot of important writers in centuries past.

"Love is a temporary madness." - St. Augustine

Forum 2:

Firstly I have to say that Katy has a real point of view about life. Like her, I think marriages have been the solution to lot of families to could live.

Moreover I believe different as Júlia, money issue has been and will be the reason why, like Cèlia says, we could find attractive girls with older rich men, like our days, like now. In other way, these "money-marriages" have been reduced in pass of time because of the improvement of the social circumstances and quality of life.

Today more people would marriage with someone he really loves. So, I can say it has been and improvement of our society, the society of lovers in the name of love.


Forum 3:

1. Cèlia's question:

Family's honour has been important in all centuries, because of the reputation of a good family. Broke the honour there was the worst thing a familiar can do to his family, it could represents his apart of society or bad manners and bad words when someone was referring to this family. Nevertheless, I think in our days it has been reduced a lot because when we are doing something we don't think about our family's honour. I think words that depreciate family aren't not the same than
honour's.

2. Pau's question:

Lol! It's true that in our class the main theme of discussion during the film was who's the most beautiful girl. But to answer this question we must know what be beautiful means at the film century. There were a lot of centuries that a beautiful girl means someone blonde with white skin that was a meaning of luxury. In other way in our times, I prefer Miss Elizabeth Bennet because his beautiful and attractive face, it isn't only a body's perspective. The intelligence Lizzy has could be some attractive to some boys and is a way to be more interested in a girl with mystery in his eyes and mouth, like her. What do you think guys?
