Hi Alex, and hi my friends.
So, what did you think? Hmm, hmm? Am I right? Of course I am. You certainly feel, that your horizons are broaden now, and sunddely, just like in a moment of revelation, a single and small bite of this delicate dessert could show you how close-minded you were, and even worse! In a moment of regret you remember that you said that your sweet student was having a bad influence on the other students, how wrong you were! Haha! I think this was an unforgettable experience for you Alex, you don´t need to be a corageous man to try cheese with fudge. I hope that you tried the right fudge. Anyway...
I reviewed your explanations about conditionals, and I tried to fix the sentence:
" If she were alive nowadays, she would never dance Axe music."
I´ll be waiting for the right answer.
Well, soap opera is a "national mania". It´s an inexpensive way of leisure which demands of you just to have a TV appliance. In ever single home, market or even at the bakery, where is a TV turned on and it isn´t footbal match day, you can bet that what they are watching is a soap opera. There is a type of spell which glue people in their sofas, and they don´t move and don´t make any noise while they are watching it. People want to have the characters lives, which is always full of luxery, money and journeys around the world, and besides that the sopa operas are set in stunning places, like Northeast of Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paolo, etc, and the actors and actresses are dazzling beautiful.
Basically the soap opera story is about the struggle of the good and evil sides, there is always an envy villain trying to become rich through ilegal methods, and he/she develops the most crazy plans to split up the main couple in order to spoil their happiness and destroy his/her opponent. Therefore the soap operas have their social side. Most of them nowadays are trying to bring up some social issues, such as the rise of criminality in the cities, organs transplants, campaigns to find missing children, and so on. The soap operas authors, insert in it characters who are passing through some of this situations, and in this way, they make the population empathise with them, and change their point of view, in order to rise the organ donations, and find missing children ( many children was found when a soap opera author brings up this issue in her story). Moreover I think is a trend among authors, to unite entertainment with social issues, and like this make the society discuss about them.
Are the soap operas a commom entretainment in your country just like is here in Brazil?
