“The Impossible” writing assignment

With our writing skills teacher, Pilar Pando, we are studying how to write news reports. In the midtime, we watched “The Impossible”. So, she gave us as an assignment to write a news report about the tsunami of the movie, and a diary like if we were one of the survivals of it.

My news report:

December 26th, 2005
Anniversary Indian Ocean tsunami

It’s been a year since the Indian Ocean tsunami. This tsunami, with a magnitude of 9.1 and a depth of 30 kilometers, killed from 230.000 to 280.000 people.
It affected 14 countries and flooding communities with waves up to 30 metres long. Indonesia was the hardest-hit country, followed by India, and Thailand. It was one of the deadliest natural disasters in recorded history.
A survival, claimed: “After coming within 15 seconds of an almost certain death one year ago today, one of the most common questions I am asked is “How did that experience change your perspective on life?” To answer that question, I look back on how awful and disastrous this was, and how I now value every second of my life”
Because of this terrible incident, AIR Worldwide is developing a complete update with a model of earthquakes for Southeast Asia, which now covers Indonesia, Philippines and Taiwan, and will be expanded to include Hong Kong, Macao, Singapur and Vietnam.

My diary:

Dear diary,
It was christmas, 2004 when I traveled looking for a way to rest from all the stress I had at home. That day, was extremely relaxing, because I had a really enjoyable flight, and the hotel was spectacular. But the next day, was the most atrocious and horrendous day I have ever had.
I woke up, and I heard desperate and noisy shoutings from people. I came out of the bed, to see what was going on. I went down to the first floor when I realize I didn’t have my key to go out. So, I went back upstairs to my floor, the twelve one. When I saw the window and noticed that a huge way, a tsunami I figured, was coming. Desperation ran through my veins, I wanted to vanish from that place because I knew I was going to die. But then, after all the shaking, I was alive, injured, but alive.
So, because of leaving my key and being clever enough to stay in the building, I’m a survivor of the Indian Ocean tsunami, one of the deadliest natural disasters in recorded history.

Warhorse – trailer assignment

Our language teacher, Maria Laura Segato, gave us the assignment of watching Warhorse trailer and answer this questions.

Individual

Watch the trailer of Warhorse. What do you think about it? Is it a good representation /summary of the movie? Why why not? Is it appealing to you or any person who did not watch it?

In pairs

Having seen the trailer, the  movie and read some chapters from the book you will have to prepare a poster that would promote the movie if it were coming out.

Answers:

I think that it is a very good trailer since it catches the attention of the viewer. I think it is a good representation of the book since it shows how war was, how brave Joey was, the love at first sight that Joey and Albert had, and how sad and lost was the horse when Albert’s father sold him. Yes it is very appealing, I already saw the movie, but I think that if I would’t have seen it, I would have watched after seeing the trailer.

Here is the poster that I did with Juana Perez Muniz.
