Doubts and comments!

Do you have any doubts about what we are learning in class? Do you want to make any comment? Or maybe you have found an interesting resource and you want to share it with your classmates.

Feel free to oomment whatever you want, and don't feel uncomfortable, even dinosaurs have doubts!

British vs American English

Maybe you have noticed the Spanish language people speak in South America is not the same than the Spanish we speak in Spain. It is the same language but, however, there are many differences.

The same happens with British and American English. Which one do you prefer?

The hard life of a T-Rex

Tyrannosaurus Rex was a bipedal carnivore with a massive skull balanced by a long, heavy tail. It was one of the largest meat-eating dinosaurs that ever lived. Scientists believe this powerful predator could eat up to 500 pounds (230 kilograms) of meat in one bite.

However, what most people don't know is how hard its life was. Can you see its arms? They are really short! T-Rex is not able to do many things due to the length of its arms.
