The pros and cons of using computers in the classroom.

The use of computers in the classroom has advantages but, at the same time, it leads some disadvantages.
Computers allow students to access a big amount of information in a short time of searching. Also, it helps teachers plan different kinds of activities that make students more interesting in learning.
On the other hand, it has a negative view. It is true to say that computers are good friends of teachers and students, but sometimes they can do school work less efficient. It happens because students usually get distracted by playing computer games or chatting through the Internet.
To sum up, technology in the classroom offers a lot of benefits related to get fast and big amounts of information. But it is important not to forget that it can cause students not to pay attention to the topics they must learn.

The World Cup increases our sense of nationalism

In my opinion, the World Cup is a moment in which people from every country get their wishes together to fight for an equal feeling.
It's a time when lots of flags and national badges are shown everywhere. Maybe there are more of them than on 9th July.
I believe that it happens because people find in football a more exciting and interesting way of expressing their patriotism.
Talking about myself, I really enjoy watching the football matches of the World Cup. It's a great feeling!!
