Hi Simon and friends,
How was your weekend? Did you all have a great time? Well, I hope so :-).
São Paulo is a place where you can see many interesting exhibitions. In June I went to one which celebrated 30 years of Star Wars. This film was a milestone in the cinema history. The film had revolucionary special effects, very good actors in the cast and an extremely gripping story, which are the essential elements to a good sci-fi film.
Anyway, althouth Star Wars celebrated its 30 years last year, the exhibition only came to Brazil in 2008. I´m a big fan of the Jedi´s saga. I´m very fond of the classic trilogy. As a matter of fact, I really wanted to be a Jedi knight when I was a child :-O. Well, you know, the Jedi honour code, the lightsaber, master Yoda, Ben Kenobi and Darth Vader were very appealing to me. I guess they still are :-).
Here are some pictures of the exhibition:
Hello Ernesto! I haven´t heard about the writers you´ve mentioned. However, I´m going to google them soon :-).
Hey Carmen! I also loved the film based on High Fidelity. Besides, you´re right. John Cusack is really great :-).
Hi Toni! Thanks for your book recommendantions :-). You can be sure I´m going to look for them soon. By the way, three months ago I read a Paul Auster´s book called The New York Trilogy. It was a recommendation of a friend of mine, Carmen. The book was a delightful surprise, apart from being very thrilling. I guess you´ve already read it. Anyway, there´s a book, which was recommended by a former teacher blogger, Stephen Keller, called “ The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night by Mark Haddon. Well, this book is great because it´s funny, clever and the language used isn´t difficult to understand. Anyway, I hope we can hear in the future your opinion about the book of our friend Woody ;-).
Nice to meet you Daniele! You´re learning English by yourself, aren´t you? Wow! Congratulations! You have a very good Englsih indeed :-).
Hey Karoum! I guess the greedy spam has been in action these days.
Hi Ewa! Nice to see you again too :-). Oooh… Anne Of The Green Gables was my first book when I was a beginner in English :-).
Hi Liz! So you´re going to be a business woman :-). Well, Lady Susan is the Jane Austen book that I haven´t read yet. Moreover, Persuasion is my favourite of her books. This book is really adorable. Have a go when you could, ok? :-)
Hello dear Bïa! You´re welcome :-). I agree with you. When you read you learn a lot from different cultures and you can discover so many nice and interesting things :-).
Hi Haliza! There´s a discussion board about Skype on BBC LE group on Facebook.
Hey Maurício! I reckon you´re talking about Crime and Punishment. This book is great indeed. It´s very interesting to see how the main character personality changes while you´re reading the story. After commited a crime, his conscience mortifies him and he can´t get rid of the blame and shame that haunted him. Well, I hope you can take up Crime and Punishment again Maurício :-).
Hi Paulo! Oh I´m not the only one who cracks the brain trying to solve the open cloze exercises :-). My teacher always says that reading is a good way to have some improvements in this exercise. But I´m a bit worried. Anyway, Machado is one of my fauvorite Brazilian writers. By the way do you know that the Língua Portuguesa museum has organised an exhibition in celebration of Machado de Assis death centenary? I haven´t visited this exhibition yet. Bu I´m planning on going there soon :-).
Hey Marianna! Ah, when the show starts it´s 7:00 pm here in Brazil. So the time is prefect to me :-).
