Why are there so many Chinese people travelling? Because they are heading home for the Chinese New Year. It is the Year of the Rooster.


Resultado de imagen de rooster chinese new yearWith regard to the question "Why are there so many Chinese people travelling?", I have to say that it's true that there were lots of Chinese people travelling on 28th January, but there were also hundreds of millions of people from all over the world travelling to China, as this country was getting ready for one of the biggest celebrations in the world: Chinese New Year.



Chinese New Year, which was Saturday 28th January this year, is the Year of the Rooster. This celebration is also known as "The Spring Festival" and it's marked by the lunisolar Chinese Calendar, so the date changes from year to year. Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of 12 animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac. Accoding to this calendar, 2017 is the Year of the Rooster, the 10th animal in the cycle and it won't be again until 2029. What a long time!



In the Chinese Zodiac Calendar I'm the dragon since I was born in the year 2000. People whose zodiac sign is the dragon are powerful, confident, smart and witty, but lack self-awareness. It is said that we also have a bad temper.




WHAT ARE YOU THE BEST AT?

It would be great to be the best at something, such as singing, dancing, at school, etc. Although I've never been the best at anything, I'm very good at rollerblading, either on land or on ice. That's what my friends say when we go together to the ice rink. However, I think that I'm not as good as professional skaters. I'm also good at languages.

Now, I'm going to give you some advice of how to try to be the best at doing something. Firstly, the thing you want to be the best at should be something that you really like. Secondly, you have to be practising it for years. If you aren't good at something, you can try to be the best dad, the best friend or maybe, the best husband.

It would be amazing to have superpowers, and it's very funny to imagine how different my life would be if I had some of them. For instance,I'd like to be able to become invisible so as to listen to what people say about me, I'd be able to go out of my home without my parents knowing it, and play pranks. I would also like to fly, which has been my dream since I was little. Finally, I would like to have the superpower of healing, so I'd be able to save lots of lives. On the contrary, I wouldn't like to know what all the people think since I'd become crazy.

HOW WOULD YOU FEEL ABOUT WINNING A MILLION EUROS?

If I won the lottery, I would feel very happy and excited, although it's a bit scary to think that you have such a lot of money as it's more likely to be robbed. However, we would also have more anti-theft security and it would be amazing to win the lottery since I have lots of ideas about how to spend it!


Now, I'm going to write about things I would do and things I wouldn't do if I won the lottery. On the one hand, I would pay for my parents'debts, as well as the mortgage. Then I would buy an expensive car for my parents and I would probably build a house in the middle of the field which is next to the river, as my mother has always wanted one. Then, I would buy lots of clothes and obviously, I'd save part of the money to pay for my studies. I would certainly buy a plane for myself, so I'd be able to travel around the world, which is my dream and I would take my father to see the Norwegian fjords. Finally, I'd give money to charity, that is to say, I'd give part of the money to people who really need it.


On the contrary, I wouldn't change my house as I love my village and my home and I want to be near my family and friends. I wouldn't spend my money on animals as my parents don't want me to bring them more animals home. Finally, one thing that I would never do if I won the lottery would be to boast about my money. In my opinion, the people who boast about having everything they want are pathetic.


I think winning a million euros would change a lot my life, as I would travel more and more, so I wouldn't be at home as much as before, and in consequence, I would probably lose my friends' relationship. In conclusion, although my life would be easier, I prefer my current life.

DO YOU WANT TO LIVE FOREVER?

I reckon most people have thought at least once in our lives what would happen if we could live for more than a hundred years. Some scientists think they will learn how to stop people growing older by the end of a decade and in consequence people would live an averange of 1,200 years.

 In my opinion that's so incredible and unimaginable. On the one hand, it would be amazing if I could live long enough as I would be able to do many more things, I would enjoy life, meet my descendants and know how the world would be like in such a long time.

 But in the other hand, it might could be a little boring to live a thousand years in the same planet, so in conclusion I wouldn't know how to do since I would be afraid to die , but it would be very strange to live until year 3,000.

 I think in the year 3,000 the world will be very different, just like year 1000 was very different from year 2,000. Surely, in year 3,000 cars will fly, men and women will be taller than now, and they will live an averange of 120 years, tecnology will be incredible, we just have to look how tecnology has advanced in the last 50 years, so in almost a thousand years, I can't imagine it!!

EVERYONE SHOULD LEARN ENGLISH

Nowadays, English is one of the most commonly language among foreign language speakers. Furthemore, we study it in Spanish schools. However, there are many people that don't like English and who think that this language should be optional. There are several points to consider.

On the one hand, learning English is quite important as it's the second most spoken language in the world, after Chinese language. Moreover, when people of different countries come together they usually use English to communicate, or when you go on holiday to another country you can use it to exchange information. In addition, it's easier to get a job if you can speak this language, so we can say that English opens doors. It is said that English is a different language to learn, but we are used to listening American songs which are English and there are also lots of apps to learn it, where we can also make friends with people from other countries.

On the other hand, some people think it isn't necessary to learn English since it takes a lot of time and effort and as I've said before, it's such a difficult language. Another reason is that Spanish is spoken by millions of people so, why shoulf we learn English if lots of people speak Spanish? That's probably what most people think. Furthemore, when you go on holiday to another part of the world, you don't need to use the local language.

All in all, there are advantages and disavantages of learning English, but I reckon it's so important for everyone to have tje opportunity of learning a foreign language, either English or German, French, etc, since we are going to need languages more and more.
