Question

Escribe aproximadamente 90-120 palabras en español (Write approximately 90-120 words in Spanish).

Para mí, comer sano es muy importante y siempre tomo un buen desayuno. Intento llevar una dieta equilibrada porque ayuda a reducir el riesgo de enfermedades. En mi opinión, comer demasiada comida basura puede causar muchos problemas de salud. El año que viene, creo que voy a empezar a jugar al baloncesto porque me parece un deporte muy emocionante. También iré al colegio cada día a pie en vez de coger el autobús. El año pasado me rompí la pierna jugando al fútbol y tuve que ir al hospital. No pude practicar el deporte durante tres meses y lo pasé muy mal.

Translation:

For me, eating healthily is very important and I always have a good breakfast. I try to eat a balanced diet because it helps to reduce the risk of illnesses. In my opinion, eating too much junk food can cause many health problems. Next year, I think I am going to start playing basketball because I think it's a very exciting sport. I will also walk to school every day instead of catching the bus. Last year, I broke my leg playing football and I had to go to hospital. I couldn't do sport for three months and I had a really bad time.

There are three bullet points to cover so it's important to cover them all equally. Remember to use a future tense to talk about what you are going to do next year and a past tense to talk about what happened last year.
