Hi people, today I’m going to talk about my favorite piece of technology!
Today, everyone have a cellphone, this is a piece that serves for almost everything. I use my cellphone not only for make calls or see my Facebook or Gmail, I have apps that serve me in my daily activities. For example, an application where I see sports scores instantly call Score.
Music, photos, social networks, messages or Whatsapp, the cellphone is there when you are bored and you don't know what to do. I think that all we stay in the cellphone for hours and suddenly you see the hour and think "seriously? am I passed five hours watching videos on Youtube?".
However, is unpleasant when you are with someone or eating and you see the other people use te cellphone all the time, that is not right.
Well, it’s all for today. See you the next Friday with a new post in Big Swing blog!

My experience

It's a sad thing for me to write this last entry. It's been a very hard semester, but it's only a few weeks before holidays. I've been a little lazy but I'm looking forward to improve.
In English classes I learnt to talk more spontaneously, a lot of vocabulary and also I have a better writing. Besides, I'd like to thank the teacher for his patience, for solving all the issues I once had.
I really liked to work with so many different topics and getting to know the interest of my mates. The entry I enjoyed the most was the the one I wrote about the monumental stadium. It's a very special place for me.
I hope to take the level 4 of this class next year and keep improving. I'll also try to watch more tv series or movies in English so I can learn more vocabulary and get better at my pronunciation.
One of my dreams is going to the United States to study. For sure, it'll be easy now, but I feel like I have a lot to improve and I can't go knowing so little, I believe it'll be really hard to me to communicate with people.
Well, I hope you've enjoyed the topics of this blog as much as I did. It's super fun to know other people's opinions so this way we all grow a little.
See you, dear fellows.

The temple

Hi people, today I’m going to talk about my favorite place in Santiago!
I don’t know if it’s very conventional, but I love it. His name is Estadio Monumental. It’s a sacred place for many people like me. It’s the field of Colo Colo, the most popular team in the country.
I went for the first time in 2005 with my dad and my mom. That day, Colo Colo defeated Everton in a match with many goals. I was very nervous and scared because the stadium was giant and so noisy. I was very happy because I met my soccer idol, Matias Fernandez. He is a great player and also a good person.
Currently, I go every weekend with my friends. Before the match, we met at my house to drink beer. Then we take the subway in Station Santa Isabel for go to the stadium. We like to sing and support the team during the entire game.
When I go I forget all my problems. For me it is amazing to be there. I can’t compare it to anything. I feel very happy when I look around and I see thousands of people who share the same passion.

Well, it’s all for today. See you the next Friday with a new post in Big Swing blog!

Hi people, today I’m going to talk about my favorite band!
Guachupe is a Chilean band formed in Santiago in 1999. They were influenced by latin rock, ska and cumbia. The band was born in Maipú and is formed by four members: Tomás Maldonado, Robinson Acuña and the brothers Nelson y Rodrigo Alveal.
They have four albums. My favorite is Estamos todos en la trampa. My favorite song is called Euforia because it is very energetic and cheerful. Always I hear in my free time. Besides that song was the song of my alarm clock. Also, I recommend listen the song Nada es tan grave, because it has an interesting melody and a good lyric.
With my college friends went to a concert recently. It was at the Caupolican Theatre with five thousand fans in the public. People brought flags, balloons and shirts like a soccer fans. It’s s a magnificent party.
I have many friends who are fans of the band for example my friends Enrique, Camilo and Manuel. When we get together to study, we listen full album for get concentration.

Well, it’s all for today. See you the next Friday with a new post in Big Swing blog!

A really good website!

Hi people, today I’m going to talk about my favorite website!

El Grafico is a classic Argentine sports magazine, you can read that each month. Is one of the most recognized in Latin America on the sports field.

This sports magazine is focused on football, but also included news about other sports including athletics, rugby, tennis, boxing, basketball, motor racing and women's field hockey.

In 2007 I went to Argentina with my family. In that trip I met this magazine in a newsstand near the Obelisco. On the cover I saw one of my top football idols, Juan Roman Riquelme. He’s considered one of the best playmakers of his generation. It was impossible not to buy it.

After that episode, I began to look for more online publications. It was great for me to discover a page with so much content.

The section I like is called 100x100. In this part, you can find interviews of 100 questions to different people from the world of football. It is one of the most popular sections of the magazine.

Currently, I visit the site each day. Every day I go to search interesting publications. I never leave disappointed. If I find something interesting, I recommend it to my friends who also love football.

I invite you to visit!

My pets

Hi people, today I’m going to talk about my pets!

Esperanza came to the house nine years ago. She is a Poddle Toy. His daughter Matilde is also our pet. They are an important part of our family. My mom loves they like another son. She’s definitely a dog lover. Our house will not be the same without them.

When they arrived was so little, but now they are tall. Although no much, because Poddle Toys are always small.  

Esperanza is the cutest dog ever. While I’m studying English, she lies beside me. She is like a daughter to me. I take care of them, I give his food, I bath her and even cut his hair. She’s very friendly and so elegant. When I get older, I want to bring with me.

Matilde is very special. She loves my little sister. They always play. Also they go for a walk to the park which is near my house. She has been very sick lately. Yesterday my dad took her to the vet. Thanks God, it’s nothing complicated.

The best day ever

This photo is a memory of one of the best days of my life. It was a day after my birthday. ⁠⁠⁠It was the best gift I could have ask for. 

Copa America is the main international football tournament in South America, and took place in our country between 11 June and 4 July 2015.

This shot was taken by Andre Penner when Chile won the Copa America for the first time in our history after a dramatic penalty shootout against Lionel Messi's Argentina in the final in Santiago.

Alexis Sánchez, who scored the winning penalty, with the Copa América trophy after Chile’s victory. Right next to him are other players like Jean Beausejour, Jorge Valdivia, Jose "Pepe" Rojas and Felipe Gutierrez.

I'll never forget this day. The celebration with friends, the happiness of winning and thousands of people in the streets shouting: CHI CHI LE LE LE VIVA CHILE!

A picture is worth a thousand words. It was amazing!
