ADVANCED 1 – GOSSIP GIRLS REVISED

FELIPE CASTANHEIRA

L and V Was Seen Together

Last Sunday, some journalists saw V leaving Vila Belmiro after a match. It is normal, but people say that L, a Corinthian man was with her. Are they having an affair? This prohibited romance can be the next “Romeo and Juliet”. A future Santos soccer player dating the Gaviões’ leader.

 

FERNANDA CARREGÃ

Mother of Neymar’s son is revealed

Right now, it’s true! A secure source spoke that she is a popular girl in this school, called A. They didn’t say her name. The story is: in one of these crazy parties, made by popular guys, she met Neymar. They talked closer, during a few minutes and then, went out. Only sober people saw them and said Neymar was hugging her. The only thing I know is she’s 15, is pregnant and her parents are angry about it.

 

VITORIA DIAS

Today when I arrived from school, I found L and he told me that M.C was pregnant! OMG M.C pregnant? I don’t believe it. But he told serious. And the worst is that the father of the child disappeared. Nobody knows where he is. And now M.C doesn’t go to school, because she is ashamed.

 

AMANDA GODOY

I arrived at CNA and people said to me that L. is a terrorist! I didn’t understand! She is so quiet and like a good girl… But nobody is sure of this; we need to do an investigation!

 

MIGUEL CAMPOS

Oh, today a lot of people came and said to me that CA. was pregnant. They said that she got drunk in a party and on the other day; she woke up and already felt sick. I don’t know if this is true or not, but this reminds her so much.

 

GUILHERME URSINI

M will play in Rock in Rio 2011

Now it is true, a CNA student – M will play at Rock in Rio! The owner of the festival confirmed that M will play in Claudia Leite’s band in the first day. People say that M is very happy with that, and he is practicing a lot for the concert.

 

 

 

LUANA MOREIRA DE OLIVEIRA

After been seen in a lot of drunk parties and be involved in some fights on the streets, D disappeared. Is he dead? Has he moved out? No. A guy that I can’t tell the name, said me that D is on rehab. He has been sent to this place by his parents, who were tired to see theirs soon arriving home after 6am. Let’s wait to see if he will be back.

 

LUCAS COELHO

OMG today I listened that N has got pregnant from two fathers at the same time. It’s so unnatural but it’s true.

 

MURILO TANAKA

People say that A has cheated her ex-boyfriend with L

Oh my God! I don’t know if that’s a true gossip. A is a very good girl, and L… Err, I can’t say the same of her HEHE’. But I think, despite A be a little crazy, she has a good mind, and wouldn’t do that =D

VICTORYA SOUZA

People say that T is pregnant of Neymar.

Wooooow. Nobody knows if that is true yet, because Neymar didn’t say anything about that… but, people say a lot of thing, and you know. When people say IT’S TRUE! BELIEVE IN ME! But with time, we’ll know if that is true really and btw, she’ll have money to clean her ass.

 

DANIEL CATALDI

Beware! Crazy Naked Guy is on the loose!

It is said that D was seen running naked on the streets and that he has freaked out. D was not doing fine since the death of his turtle and after that he began to have hallucinations about his dead pet. Pay attention while you walk on the streets folks, because he’s really dangerous.

 

THAYS RIBEIRO

L’s grandfather was murdered by Hitler!

Investigating over L’s life, I discovered from a very reliable source, a very strange and sad story about his family, his grandfather was killed by Hitler. The same source said that L discovered it recently; we imagine that it was a big shock to him.

ADVANCED 2 – AMERICAN VS. BRITISH ENGLISH

My wonderful Advanced 1 class, while studying the differences between American and British English, decided to promote the most typical English Tradition – the 5pm tea, which is also known as low tea, is a light meal typically eaten between 3pm and 5pm. The custom of drinking tea originated in England when Catherine of Bragança married Charles 2 in 1661 and brought the practice of drinking tea in the afternoon with her from Portugal. Various places that belonged to the former British Empire also have such a meal. However, changes in social customs and working hours mean that most Britons will rarely take afternoon tea, if at all. Traditionally, loose tea is brewed in a teapot and served in teacups with milk and sugar. This is accompanied by sandwiches (customarily cucumber, egg and cress, fish paste, ham, and smoked salmon), scones (with clotted cream and jam, see cream tea) and usually cakes and pastries (such as Battenberg, fruit cake or Victoria sponde). In hotels and tea shops the food is often served on a tiered stand; there may be no sandwiches, but bread or scones with butter or margarine and optional jam or other spread, or toast, muffins or crumpets.
