MUSIC

ZAC BROWN BAND is a group that sings COUNTRY music.

 The ORIGIN of the group is in Atlanta, Georgia.

Almost all country music comes from the SOUTH part of the USA.

There are 5 members in the group, but the most important is Zac Brown.

He plays the guitar and sings. He is the LEAD SINGER. 

The name of the song we listened to in class is called CHICKEN FRIED. 

The LYRICS are the words to a song.

The CHORUS is the most important part of the song that we repeat throughout the song. 

The song is all about the things that Zac Brown Band likes about America. 

Zac brown likes a lot of things in the USA and is very PROUD to be from America. 

A person who is very proud to be from their country is a PATRIOTIC person. 

This song was written after SEPTEMBER 11th, 2001 and is a TRIBUTE to the soldiers who are fighting in the war now. 

INSTRUMENTS in the music:

- GUITAR

- VIOLIN

- DRUMS

- KEYBOARD

- BANJO

 SPECIAL CLOTHING the group may wear is:

- JEANS

- T-SHIRT

- COWBOY BOOTS

- COWBOY HAT

 

 

 

BASEBALL

BASEBALL is a very popular sport in the United States.

It´s ORIGIN comes from England, and is similar to a game called Rounders. 

But the first true baseball game was played in New York in 1845. 

 

In Baseball each team has NINE players. 

The teams are permitted to have an UNLIMITED number of SUBSTITUTIONS. 

To play baseball we need this EQUIPMENT:

- BAT

- BALL

- HELMET

- GLOVE

- CAP/ HAT

- CLEATS

- JERSEY 

Some ACTIONS we use to play:

- RUN

- THROW

- SWING

- HIT

- CATCH

If the BATTER tries to HIT the BALL and they miss the ball it is called a STRIKE. 

If the BATTER hits the ball they run to FIRST BASE, then SECOND BASE, then THIRD BASE, then HOME. 

If they hit the ball very far and then run all the bases in one trip it is called a HOMERUN.

There are 9 INNINGS. One inning = 3 outs for each team. 

The teams receive an out if they have 3 STRIKES or if the ball arrives at the BASE before the RUNNER. 

 

We play baseball in a FIELD.

The people who watch the baseball game sit in the STADIUM. 

 

In baseball we do not use the words points. We say RUNS. 

If Team A has 4 and Team B has 6 we say that Team B WINS because they have more RUNS. 

If Team A has 2 runs and Team B has 2 runs there is a TIE.

The TIE BREAKING METHOD is to play more INNINGS. 

The duracion of a baseball game depends on how many innings we have to play. 

Some baseball games can be one  hour, some games can be 4 hours. It depends. 

There are 2 REFEREES in baseball. 

My favorite team is the San Francisco Giants.

This year the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS won the WORLD SERIES.

THE WORLD SERIES is a very important tournament in the United States for baseball. 

A famous player from this team is Willie Mays. 

Willie Mays had 660 HOMERUNS during his CAREER.

We use the name LEGEND to describe Willie Mays because he has RETIRED and no longer plays baseball, but he had a lot of talent and was very good at the sport.

The HALL OF FAME is a MUSEUM for baseball. 

There are PHOTOS, AUTOGRAPHS, and JERSEYS inside the hall of fame. 

 

 

Introduction

Hello IES Mos. 

 

My name is Jessica Wallace and I am from California in the United States. I moved to Vigo in September to help teach English here in Mos and I am really excited about this year. I am 22 years old and just graduated from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California in May 2010. This is my first time to be a teacher. 

 I have a wonderful family in California. My mom´s name is Andrea and my dad´s name is Jim. My mom volunteers in a hospital and my dad is a farmer. My dad farms three types of food: rice, tomatoes, and beans. I have two younger brothers. Eric is 19 years old and is starting his first year at the University or Oregon. Garrett is 15 years old and is an incredible football and basketball player. This past summer before I arrived in Spain my brothers and I worked on the farm with my dad. We learned to drive tractors, plant seeds, and water the plants. 

 

My family has many hobbies, but our two favorite hobbies are wakeboarding and snowboarding. In the summer we like to go to the river with our boat and go wakeboarding, and in the winter we go to the mountains to go snowboarding. 

 

I am very excited to be at this school for this year. I am having a lot of fun already and think all the students and teachers at this school are very welcoming. I hope we continue to have a good year together.
