Learn Songs in English!!

I love this kind of classes in Ilab, it's funnier than doing my regular ilab, and also we learn more, because we are really interested in the activity that we"re doing! So, I listened two songs from Beyonce that I wanted to listen since long time, because the lyrics are a quite similar to some experiences of my life, and that was interesting for me to learn it.

The songs are "If a were a boy" and "Broken-hearted Girl". These are old songs, but I didn't use to listen her before, but now I realized that she basically sings about my life hahahahhaa, I listen all her songs, and i love it. I put the videos on my Facebook if you wanna know about it :)

Independence of Venezuela

The Republic of Venezuela celebrates its independence from Spain on two different dates: April 19, when an initial declaration of semi-independence from Spain was signed in 1810, and July 5, when a more definitive break was signed in 1811. April 19 is known as “Firma Acta de la Independencia” or “Signing of the Act of Independence.”

One holy thursday of 1810, specifically April 19 in Caracas began the beginning of a stage in the history of Venezuela. On this day, the Cabildo of Caracas, with the support of the people, and important sectors of the armed forces, both battalions of veterans and militias, led by Simon Bolivar, as well as prominent figures of the clergy, society, intellectuals, deposed the governor and General Captain Vicente Emparan and other spanish officials, sending them into exile. This revolutionary movement that took place in a bloodless ultimately had an impact on the political, economic, social and cultural development not only in Venezuela, but throughout South America.

What began on April 19, 1810 as an autonomy movement by the Cabildo of Caracas, but remained faithful to King Ferdinand VII in 1811 not only topped the field in the province of Caracas to join other provinces, but involved the break with the Spanish colonial nexus. To this end he settled in Caracas on March 2, 1811, the first congress of Venezuela, with representation from the provinces of Caracas, Cumana, Barinas, Margarita, Merida, Barcelona and Trujillo. These seven provinces that formed the "American Confederation of Venezuela in the Southern Continent", is symbolized in the seven stars of the venezuelan flag.

During the morning on July 5, the debate continues in Congress, and by early afternoon the vote, made the counting of votes, the Congress President Juan Antonio Rodriguez Dominguez, solemnly announced at three in the afternoon that was proclaimed the absolute independence of Venezuela.

Since that day Venezuela was born. At present, every venezuelan commemorate this day with a big national pride. Many households displays banners and flags in their houses to remember the struggles waged by soldiers and Creole patriots of that time.

Motivation Review

I always have been a motivated girl; when I want to get a goal, I keep my focus on it. Since I arrived here, I have been doing some activities to keep my motivation on. My big motivation has been my teachers, they always remaind me the reason why I'm here, even Damian with his hammer (lol). I'm always gonna thank to my first teacher Steve Appell, because he gave me self-assurance to speak, he's so nice that I never fell scared to talk with him, that's important when you're learning a new language.

Also, I started to read a book in English, because I think it's a good way to learn new vocabulary. It's named "Women who love to much", it's a bestseller written by Robin Norwood. This book is about women who have had disfunctional problems in their families since they were children, and after they became adults, they're envolved in insane relationships with guys who aren't available to settled down or keep a sane relationship. It's interesting for me, because I can improve my english and learn about some interesting life's topics at the same time.

Also, one of my motivation activity is write in English on Facebook. Almost every day I post a message on my wall about any topic, often I post on my friends' walls to say Hi or to make jokes with them. Also, I put some pictures and everyone comments them writing in English. This is an informal way to learn English, but not least important, because we can improve our writing skills without have any kind of pressure, it's a relaxing way to improve it.

Alfie Review


Mention Title:
Genre: Chick Flick / Drama
Director: Charlie Shyer
Actors: Jude Law, Sienna Miller, Susan Sarandon
Date of Release: November 5, 2004.


In Manhattan, the British limousine driver Alfie is surrounded by beautiful women, most of them clients, and he lives as a Don Juan, having one night stands with all of them and without any sort of commitment. His girl-friend and single-mother Julie is quite upset with the situation and his best friends are his colleague Marlon and his girl-friend Lonette. Alfie has a brief affair with Lonette, and the consequences of his act forces Alfie to reflect and wonder about his life style.


Alfie is a typical womanizer who believes that every woman can’t resist his charming, that really annoyed me! I must admit this kind of movie is so realistic, because almost every men are like Alfie at least in a stage of their life, they brake the hearts’ women just to live crazy experiences with other women, sometimes without think that he would be lose an happy life join his woman’s dreams… and maybe that’s why I really hate it. Another fact that I hated also was when the leading character (Alfie) looked directly to the camera to talk with us, it was so annoying, I don’t like this kind of effects, it’s confusing because they mixed up the acting with the reality, and it’s so tedious for me.

I prefer other kind of movies, sush as Sci-fiction, Comedy, Romantic… however I think it was amusing for a while, the actors played very convincing, I really hated Alfie actually, so they did a good job. Susan Sarandon got my attention; she played like a superficial woman, sexy and self- confidence that I loved her. About the director, I think that he wanted to show how a superficial life could end up in an empty life, everything seemed nice, sexy, funny can become in a disaster and also how people make mistakes while they’re having a crazy life and after they feel regret about their behavior, when they have lost values people or things and then they can’t do anything about it.

Related to the music, special effects and cinematography, I think it join the story perfectly. Every time that something happened, like a new meeting between Alfie and any girl, both the music and special effects had a perfect combination to get our attention and we could feel exactly that the director wanted to perform, that’s important and I think Shyer did it.


It’s difficult to say if I would recommend this kind of movie or not, because usually I wouldn’t like to watch it, but after to understand the movie, I think it has an important moral to learn. I specially recommend this movie to men, because it’s interesting they can see what the result of their stupid behavior is. Maybe, they can reflect about it and change a little bit their life, at least for a while. Even though, it would be interesting for some women also, because they can identified with kind of man they have a relationship and what behavior they must have to get the right man.
