Transcript:

El curso pasado era miembro del club de baile. Practicábamos durante la hora de comer y el recreo. Ahora no tengo tiempo para las actividades extraescolares porque tengo demasiado trabajo escolar. Después de mis exámenes tendré más tiempo libre y el año que viene me gustaría hacerme socia del club de arte dramático porque tengo ganas de ayudar a representar una obra de teatro.

Translation:

Last school year I was a member of the dance club. We practised during lunch hour and break. Now I don't have time for extra-curricular activities because I have too much school work. After my exams I will have more free time and next year I would like to join the drama club because I am keen to help put on a drama production.
