Do you know which one is the common reason why young people die? I think one of the most common reasons why young people die is just because young people drink and drive at the same time. Drinking and driving at the same time is one of the biggest causes of death. Every year we have many tragical accidents with drunk people. However, we have to find one solution to stop this serious problem.

Drinking and driving is a really bad combination because you can lose the car control. Usually young people go to parties or night clubs and drink a lot, after that, they take their cars and start to drive. Driving faster is a bad choice if they are drunk. They are never responsible to run. They never respect any signal, so they never respect the velocity limit.

Young people die bacause they don't have conscience about their actions. They lose the conscience about the issue that they have to take care about their own life and also of the life of the people who are with them, and they never think about the other people who are driving safely to go home. This kind of people never think about what responsability is, they only think about living the moment and they never think about the consequences of their acts.

Drinking is not a bad idea if you don't drive. Every time that you have plans to drink, it is important to think about your safety. The results of drinking and driving at the same time are fatal and they can lose their life. Everybody has to help to create conscience in young people for not doing that. Recently, the government has created some programs to give a hard punishment to this kind of people.

So, to conclude, I'm sure that drinking and driving at the same time is a big problem. For that reason, I agree with government and also with the people who call the police when they see somebody driving wrong, because this cause of death has to be stopped. Everybody has to think about our safety.


Do you smoke? If you do, it is really important to know some things about the damage done in your body by smoking. In our days is very common to see people smoking and sometimes under age people. Smoking a lot causes some effects like lung and mouth cancer, ulcers and also the passive smokers can be damged by people who smoke.

One of the effects is lung cancer and also mouth cancer. Those kinds of illnesses are very pitiful. Cancer is considered like a slow death. The lung cancer is the effect of smoking, is when you lose the capacity to breath right. The lungs lose their capacity of expansion, the expansion that they need to work right. So, when people have lung cancer is really difficult to breath for them. So, they have to recieve special attention in the hospital, they have to be conected to an artificial breathing. So, as I said, it is a slow death.

Another effect caused by smoking and thats cause a lot of damage are ulcers. This kind of illness is produced by smoking. Cigarette smoke produces serious damages in the stomach. Ulcers are a cause of death if they are not detected on time. So all smokers have to be careful if they feel frequent stomachaches. Nobody pays attention to this kind of symthomps, but if you have an ulcer you coul be in risk of dying.

Many people result damaged by cigarettes, but this kind of people smoke indirectly. The passive smokers recieve damage by people who smoke next to them. In many cases passive smokers have many deseases produced by smokers. Passive smokers sometimes never know the effects of breathing cigarette smoke.

To conclude, smoking is bad for your health, because it produces a lot of damage and in extreme cases: the death. Smoking is like a slow death, so if you are smoker, you are in risk, you are dying, so be careful with that.


Can you remember your best experince in another country? Last summer (in 2007), I traveled to the United States for working and spending some time with my friends.

I stayed two months in that country. I decided to travel because I wanted to do something different. I was bored about all my daily activities, so I decided to take the risk. I traveled alone for getting a job in the same company than a friend of mine. Traveling to the United States was one of the best experiences that I ever had.

When I arrived to the United States, a friend of mine went to pick me up. So, I went to his house for leaving my luggage, and for taking a shower. After that, we went to a restaurant and we spent a nice time talking about our lives. At night, we went to a nice night club. I had a very nice day, but I was tired, so we decided to comeback to the house.

In the following days, I got a job. I was working for Mc Donald's in the mornings, from 8 am to 3 pm. I really enjoyed my job because I met many people from USA and another countries. Sometimes I worked in the Drive-thru window, other times in the kitchen, and also in the front of the store. I had a good schedule because I was busy only in the mornings, so I had much free time in the afternoons.

On my free time, I did my daily activities like cleaning the house, washing my clouths and so on. After finishing our activities, we used to have parties in the house. Sometimes we used to go out to different restaurants, and some weekends we traveled to another state named Loussiana. There we had a good time at the Casino, and some other times at a night club too.

So, in conclusion, I think it was a nice trip, because I met new people from many places. Besides, I did everything that I wanted, because I had to take my own desicions.

Comparative Essay


San Luis Potosí and Aguascalientes are very similar in many ways. But what are some differences between them? These differences are in weather, in some holidays that each city has, also they are different in the behavior of their citizens, and the last difference is in the way that each city celebrates its fair.

The first difference between San Luis Potosí and Aguascalientes is the weather. In San Luis Potosí the weather is mild. In summer and spring time is hot. In autumn is cold but is colder in winter. Aguascalientes has a more extreme weather. When is hot is really hot in summer and spring time. And is colder in autumn with a lot of wind, and even colder in winter than San Luis Potosí.

About holidays each city celebrates special days on their way. For example on Friday Easter in San Luis Potosí people make a “Procesión del Silencio” that is to recreate Christ’s passion in a procession. In Aguascalientes there is the “Romeria´s day” in Easter week. On that day, the drivers of buses and taxies carry flowers to the Asuncion’s virgin.

The behavior of people varies between San Luis Potosí and Aguascalientes citizens. In San Luis people are more impolite with foreigners and not too religious. In contrast Aguascalientes´ citizens are more well-educated and friendly with tourists. Also they go to church every Sunday.

These two cities celebrate their fairs on their way. In San Luis Potosí is in August and its facilities are in a close perimeter with specific areas. Another thing is that in this fair you can not drink everywhere just in a specific area. On the other hand Aguascalientes fair is in different outdoor places and you can drink everywhere. Its like a big party.

Aguascalientes and San Luis Potosí are cities with a lot of common things. However in many aspects they are pretty different as we saw; the weather, the way in that each one celebrates special dates, the behavior of their inhabitants and their fairs. The truth is that both cities belong to México and share traditions on their way.

Narratie Essay


I had never been happier, more exited, and at the same time more frightened in one single day. I was 12 years old, when I with my childhood friends: Paco, Santiago, Nicaragua, César, Brenda and Ivan. This summer day started early full of fun and finished late with a frightening ending.

It was 9 am and I was sleeping when I heard that in my window, some stones were thrown up by Santiago and Paco. They were singing in loud voice to wake me up. I dressed up fast and I went to them. That morning I had a very friendly wake up. A very happy and funny morning was to start.

We went to our other friends. All together played with balloons filled with water throwing among each other. Finally, we seemed like a “soup”, consequently; we agreed about going to our house and take a shower. That summer morning was so exciting that we decided to do other things.

In the afternoon my friends and I went to Carl´s Jr. but to get there, on the way, we got lost among the streets. After so much time we arrived to the fast food restaurant. We had dinner, played jokes and almost started a “food fight” among us. Then we come back to our homes.

At night we were playing outside in the streets again. It was like 11 p.m. and we were playing hide and seek. Everybody was found, the only one that was missing was Paco. So all of us screamed his name along the street, but nothing happened.

In the street there was an empty house, that before that day, we had opened to play. We thought that he was there due to we saw a shadow of a boy running in the stairs. We yelled at him, and suddenly Paco went out of his house saying that he was in the bathroom. My friends and I were freaked out and after that, each one went to home.

We will never know who that shadow was. A very frightening night was that one. There is no doubt that, that summer day was so special. To sum up, it was the perfect summer day, a day full of funny experiences, with a meal with joke taste, and a chilling hide and seek. It was a memorable day with all the “flavors” in it.

Problem Solution Essay


The last years in the whole World the obesity in children has been increasing in an alarming way. Now a days many countries are trying to do something to make their children’s life healthier. Obesity affects psychologically and physically that is why we need to change this situation. The problem of obesity in children can be solved by doing a nutritional culture at an early age and an exercise program for elementary school.

First of all I’m going to talk about the physical and psychological effects of obesity in children. Physically children’s health is affected by a variety of illnesses like hypertension, diabetes or fatigue in excess. Psychologically the most important effects are depression and low self-esteem. These both effects have a direct impact in the way in which children are going to interact with society.

There are many things that we can do to stop obesity but the most important is to create a nutritional culture at an early age. That is to implement in elementary school certain rules about the kind of food that can be sold. For example just fruit and nutritious meals. It is difficult to achieve this goal, but it is not impossible with the help of the government.

Also; an exercising program is needed. It should be implemented in elementary school as a complement o the nutritional culture for children. This program must arouse a sport spirit in them through sport clubs, which are going to be free. But these activities will be obligatory in public schools and with a minimum of 4 hours per week. It is certain that this can work.

As we saw, obesity in children can be solved by taking action in the nutritional education of children and in the way that they see sports. And as a result, children in the world are going to grow healthier and with a different mentality about what they should and shouldn’t eat, and what they have to do to keep their body and mind healthy.
