SPEAKING LANGUAGE: SPANISH You need to have a discussion with your teacher on the topic “tecnología”. Read Laura’s email to her friend Jenny first and then start the different tasks.
Querida Jenny, Esta semana ha pasado algo terrible en mi colegio: ¡nos han prohibido usar los teléfonos móviles! El nuevo director dice que algunos chicos usan sus teléfonos para chatear y hacer compras en línea mientras están en el colegio. En realidad las personas que usan mal el teléfono son una minoría. Yo y mis amigas usamos los teléfonos en el colegio solo para buscar información en internet relacionada con nuestras asignaturas. Es verdad que también chateamos y escuchamos música, pero sólo cuando estamos en el autobús o cuando llegamos a casa, nunca en el colegio. El nuevo director es de verdad muy severo… ¿Cómo funciona en tu colegio? ¿Podéis usar los móviles? ¡Escríbeme pronto! Un abrazo muy grande,

Dear Laura, Thanks so much for your email. Your new Head seems pretty awful… Poor you! Our school is a bit weird. We’re allowed to have our phones during school time and most teachers even encourage us to use them to research some topics during the lessons. During break time we are free to text or listen to music. We have no rules! I don’t know whether your head or mine is right. To be honest I think that some students at my school misuse their mobiles: they spend hours stuck to their phone screens instead of talking to each other. My parents are quite strict regarding the use of technology, so I can’t use my phone too much at home. It’s annoying sometimes.
How are your parents? Can you use your phone as much as you want or do you have rules too?
Remember to reply soon!!
Jenny 🙂 xx
