Resenha crítica em inglês - Divergent (exercícios)


Divergent by Veronica Roth - review
Tuesday 15 July 2014 15.00 BST

Divergent is about a girl called Tris. She lives in a world which has a divided society. Tris doesn't fit in to any of the societies, she is different. She is forced to live a life she doesn't want. She wants to find where she belongs, so she leaves her family behind and ventures out alone. However, she finds herself in a brutal new life where she can trust nobody. 
The book is very intriguing from the very start to the end. Many people say it is just like The Hunger Games, but I have read and enjoyed both books and I can tell you they are very different. 
I would recommend this book to people who enjoy adventure books and love books like The Hunger Games.

Leitura em inglês (texto curto) What is a digital detox? (9ºano e 1ºano EM)


What is a digital detox? 

A digital detox is switching off all mobiles, smartphones, tablets, laptops, and computers for a certain length of time. This enables you to spend screen-free time doing whatever you enjoy. A digital detox is also a chance to recharge and rest. 
A digital detox should ideally be around 24 hours long as a minimum. It can be 72 hours or more if you want to build up to that.

What's the Future of English? 
A language's development reflects the power of those who speak it 

So how exactly did that happen? How did English grow so quickly and seemingly so unexpectedly? According to Crystal, in spite of the widespread notion that this is due, at least in part, to the fact that it is an easy language to learn, 'without any grammar', as some people have said, there is something much deeper behind the exponential growth of English as a global language. Crystal suggests that a language's development is a direct reflection of the power of those who speak it. From the beginnings of the British Empire, to the industrial revolution in Britain, which brought significant technological and scientific developments and a number of influential inventions from English-speaking inventors, through to the continued economic power of the 19th century and cultural power of the 20th century, English has maintained its edge.
