Report for PAULA magazine:

If you are invited to someone’s house in my country, there are some things you should remember to do…
In Uruguay you don’t need to be punctual or earlier, you always have to arrive around the hour that you are invited.
Flowers are an ideal present for your host, it doesn’t matter the colour.
It’s a good idea to act like everybody, don't call people’s attention.
You have to enter into conversation, be natural.
You should avoid wearing formal clothes, only if your host requires you.
During the meal you can talk about whatever you want, in general people talk about funny and stupid things to stay happy. You can eat what you want, it doesn’t matter if the plate is not empty, but you must say: “muy rico todo”.
The most important thing to do in a party, in a meeting, or in a meal is “pasarla bien”

Now, you're going to be able to read some letters and e-mails!!!

From: Rulo
To: Pablo

Hi Pablo,

Some friends told me that you are looking at a mobile phone to buy. What about going to the shopping centre next Friday evening?
I can help you to choose one if you want.
If you agree, we can meet at the shopping centre’s main entrance.



Dear Diego,

Hello!!! I received your letter two days ago. You asked me about my fauvorite TV programmes. I watch many funny and interesting programmes but my fauvorite one is “The Simpsons”. It’s about an American family that has a “normal life”. It makes me laugh, and the best character of the series is Homer. He is a stupid man, that makes many funny things. I also watch other kinds of TV programmes like CSI, NCIS, etc. I watch them because they are in English and I can improve my studies, and because there are very good programmes.

Now, tell me about yours!!!



Dear Claudia,

Sorry for missing the class on Wednesday. I can’t be there because I have a running competition that day.
I can study the next 4 pages of the book that I didn’t do. What do you think?
Yours sincerely,


Dear Lucia,

Hi!!! Thanks for your last letter. You asked me about the type of clothes I like wearing . I love wearing casual baggy clothes. There’re very comfortable!!! I usually wear t-shirts and trousers, but when the weather isn't very well, I prefer wearing long-sleeved t-shirts with some trousers and a baggy jacket.
You also asked me about shopping for clothes. I enjoy shopping for clothes only when I need some. I hate having clothes that I don’t wear. It’s very bad. What do you think of my opinion?

Write back!!!

Do you want to know what kind of weather we have in Uruguay?
And, do you know how that affects our country?
Well, in this article you'll find all the answers to these questions.
For the beginning, the weather in Uruguay is template and humid. We have a lot of precipitacions over the year and our highest temperatures in summer are about 37°C. In winter we have temperatures below 0°C.
We are situated in an area of no danger or possibilities of earthquakes, but because of our proximity to the ocean, we have strong winds and cold waves. Precipitations in Uruguay sometimes causes floods that affects our production and kills many animals. On the other hand, we experiment drought that causes many problems in the country like death of vegetables and animals, and the quantity of the rivers' water goes down.
Now you're informed, but keep searching!!!

I did a story that had to start with: "I had never imagined I would see myself on the news"
It starts...
I had never imagined I would see myself on the news.
It was Saturday and I was playing football with some friends at the local park. We were having a lot of fun when two cars crashed. Suddenly, all the area became a chaos. The police, the doctors, ambulances and firemen were there.
All the neighbours started to look at the bad situation. I don't know why, but I started to look at a woman that was walking along the street, just when a robber was stealing her. He started to run and the police didn't know where he was. I started to look for him and I saw where he was. Immediately I told the police the situation and a reporter called me: "the little hero". I appeared on the prime time news.

One day…

I was in my grandparents’ hause playing footbal with my brother. After a while, we started to get tired and we went inside the house to rest and to drink some water.

Later, that afternoon, we went out to the garden again to play with our grandparents’ dog, who is called “Raisor”. Immedeatly, we saw that a man was stealing somebodies car in the street!!! I told my brother to go into de house to tell my grandparents what was happening and I opened the garden’s door. Immediately Raisor started to bark and then he went to the street and he bit the man in the leg. He couldn’t escape. In that moment, my grandparents and my brother went out of the house and came to the street with me and Raisor. It all happened so quickly!!! After some minutes, the owner of the car appeard. We were surprised when we discovered that the owner of the car was “Francisco Nante”. He congratulated us for stopping the criminal and he gave us some autographs. We never saw him again!!!
