Road trip (BBC English learning)

Have a look at some compositions written and read by some students of English from different countries. Just have a look and pay attention to the way they deal with this topic...

  1. I have liked a lot the different writings I have read, and I have seemed to me fantastic the first one, a metaphorical journey by Adam Kodam Coulibaly.
    I have an anecdote once I was in Rome. I don't know what happened to me because every time I took the map I saw the city the other way around. Every time I went out from the hotel and looked at the map, if I had to go towards one side I took the opposite direction. I spent a week very strange.

    Great Araceli!

    Try to make these two structures more "English":

    "I have liked a lot" .... " I have seemed"

    One of the more common errors when writing is thinking in Spanish and translating directly all the time..;)

    Go on taking part in this blog!
