My virtual learning experience

Studying at home was not that easy. It is much harder to understand everything because although you have a teacher you can ask things to by Handing, it is less easy than just raising your hand. Also, you depend on the internet, which sometimes may not work well. At the same time, studying at home is more comfortable, you have everythings you need right away. However, I miss my friends, and despite we have managed quite well with virtual classes, I want normal classes back. During this month I have used Handing and Google Classroom more than in the last year. I also started using Google Meet and Edmodo. My favorite way to have online classes is by Google Meet, because I can at least see my partners and teacher, and talking through a videocall is much faster, simple and less confusing than writing down a text message. At home I study in my living-room’s table. I have a desk in my bedroom, but I find it more confortable to study in the living. It is my spot.

“And hard times are good in their own way, too. Because the only way you can achieve true happiness is if you experience true sadness as well. It’s all about light and shade. Balance”.

“Hard times may have held you down, but they will not last forever. When all is said and done, you will be increased”.  

Writing Tasks

In our writing classes we have been doing some work. The first activity we did was related to the story “The Gold Cadillac”. We had to read the story and write and record in vocaroo a summary about it. Here is my recording:

I enjoyed this activity because I like reading very much, and the story talked about racism and segregation in America, some interesting and important things to read about.

At the same time, we have also been working with festivities. We did some group work about some important British festivities and then we did an individual writing about a local festivity that takes place in Argentina. I chose to write about the “National Sun’s Festival”. Here is my writing:
