Flying overseas is said to be the dream of everyone. That is why the number of tourists increases every year.

It is an open secret that Spain is one of the most visited countries in the world, some of the most important advantages of tourism in our country are: it brings in money (this is probably the main benefit and the reason why it has been promoted so much in recent years) and unemployment decreases.

Unfortunately, tourism can also be a source of problems, too. One of the main issues is the lack of respect of some tourists for local traditions and culture, getting drunk in public, or behaving rudely or inappropriately. One of the best known activities that tourists make is get into trouble by practising "balconing", which is really popular among tourists who are drunk and consists of jumping from a hotel's balcony into a swimming pool.

From my point of view , the government should take action in Barcelona, whose problems are the high number of tourists, which is the opposite in Turkey, where tourism has decreased due to the terrorist attacks. I would add that as it is said in the article the answer is not to attack tourism since everyone is a tourist at some point in their life.

Since we were kids we have been always told that we must not tell lies (especially by parents or teachers). There are a lot of stories whose moral is: you must not lie. The best known one is “Pinocchio”, whose key message is: if you lie, bad things are going to happen to you.

Thus, during our childhood we may have told little lies. However, while we get older our lies are bigger and worse. There are different kinds of lies, for example the one that is for making feel someone better or the ones that everybody has told at least once time, for example: “ I will be there in five minutes”.

Nowadays, we are used to seeing a big number of lies on social media (Instagram, Snapchat...). In these places people often lie about their lives, making it look more amusing and amazing. It is known that “influencers” are the most common ones to tell lies, as they make a living out of it.

To conclude, I would add that, from my point of view, you always have to be honest with everybody and have friends who are trustworthy, because a relationship without trust is like having a phone without service. And what do you do with a phone without service? You play games.

Summer is thought to be the perfect season for trying new things as students do not have to go to school or study for their exams. Some of the common things that people usually do in this season are: going to the beach or swimming pool, going shopping, eating ice-creams...

It is an open secret that music and people have been always very close since music has the ability to express feelings or to bring you back some memories. For example most people when they feel blue they prefer to listen to sad music, and when for example they feel over the moon they prefer to listen to the contrary.

One of the most famous songs right now is “Despacito” performed by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. This song has had a huge success in a lot of countries and its video has become the one with the most number of views on youtube. However, it seems that I am the only person that cannot stand it. “Mi gente” by J Balvin and “Thunder” by Imagine Dragons are some of the most listened songs, too.

To conclude, I would add that this season is also perfect for music festivals like: Tomorrowland (which is celebrated every year in Belgium and is one of the most astonishing ), Glastonbury...,etc. Sadly, these festivals are not affordable for everybody.

The objetive of this essay is to discuss if short attention
span is due to technology. In the following lines I am going to write about: how technology affects young people’s life, the advantages of Internet and its main downside.

Nowadays, internet is thought to be the greatest invention of all times for several reasons: instant communication with anyone in the world and gives access to an endless supply of entertainment, knowledge and information.

Nevertheless, they have a negative impact on learning, as it is said in the article, we live in a hyper-stimulating world, because of this more and more learners have problems to concentrate in a chalk-and-talk lesson. Schools have tried to solve this banning mobile phones, but as we can see this has not solved anything.

It is an open secret that they also have a negative impact on young people’s social life. There are a big number of studies carried out by psychologists that say that people who spend a lot of time alone using internet and technology may have low communication skills. This is due to the fact that they spend so much time communicating remotely with people rather than face-to-face.

To conclude, I would add that I reckon that having attention depend on each person and even if teachers made their classes more amusing, students would not pay more attention.
