Luego de realizar el trabajo de la Revolción Francesa del blos de María Laura de a grupos, tuvimos como tarea corregir un trabajo de otro grupo. Yo lo hice con Bautista Buljevich, y corregimos el trabajo de Oliverio Llobet.
In our Literature class, we analyzed the poem Lion Heart by Amanda Chong from “Songs of Ourselves”. According to a post on Pat’s blog, in groups, we had to analyze the poem following two videos and a presentation of its analysis and later create a poster including certain information. This is the poster I made with Matias Ripoll.
Este es el trabajo práctico que hicimos con Matías Ripoll, Ramiro Aizpiri y Francisco Montoya sobre los edificios de poder público ubicados en la plaza de mayo.
Consigna:¿Qué edificios del poder público se encuentran alrededor de la plaza de mayo, la ciudad de Buenos Aires? ¿A quién pertenece, al gobierno nacional o al gobierno de CABA?
a) The man was walking through the street. It was around half past nine, and he was very tired, as he had been playing football with his friends all the afternoon, something he used to do once a week. It was cold, as it had snowed for a while. Because of this, he wanted to arrive home quickly, so he began to run. Unfortunately, he decided to cross the road, and, while he was running, a drunk man stroke him with his car and ran away. If he had grabbed a coat before going to play football, we wouldn’t have been in such a hurry to get home, and, therefore, wouldn’t have had the accident. Fortunately, he was found by a woman, who immediately helped him.
Simple Past: It was a cold night
Past Continuous: I was working late
Past Perfect: I was tired because I had been working for hours
Past Perfect Continuous: Before the football match, it had been raining all the afternoon, so the pitch was wet
Type 3: If i had found you ten minutes later, it would have been too late

They were all amazed, however, his wife wasn’t because he promised to use the money to buy a new house. Then, he announces he will travel with it to Mississippi, a place full of racist people. When they were arriving, the police stopped them, accusing them of stealing the car, and they took the father to the police station.In there, they had to pay a speed ticket, and,when they got out,the decided not to go deeper into the south, so they went back to the north.
