A 'YouTuber' is anyone who makes videos on YouTube, which is the most visited website in the world. However, we usually call 'Youtuber' to the person who has gaigned popularity from making videos on this platform, that is to say, who has lots of subscribers. So we can say that to being a YouTuber is a new profession.

This people start to upload videos for several reasons such as making money, becoming famous, transmitting knowledge or simply, having fun. The most famous youtubers started to upload videos years ago and didn't intend to make any money. They made videos to share them with their friends and to hang out, because they loved doing them. It was later when YouTube started to pay money to these people and actually, many people make videos only to make money.

On average, 85% of teenagers in Spain watch YouTube and most of them would like to meet their idolds. It isn't easy to find one in the Street, but it's not imposible, either. Last San Juan my friends and I met Zeus Santorini, who is a youtuber, and we took a photo with him. How fantastic it was!
Some of them, like Wismichu or AuronPlay organize shows around Spain. Others organize meetings and greet people in certain events or sign books since lots of them have already written a book.

'Clickbait' is a technique used by some Youtubers to have more visits. It consists in putting a tittle or a miniature misleading people to watch the video.

Resultado de imagen de VAN GOGHTo begin with,I'm going to talk about who Vicent Van Gogh was.
Vicent William Van Gogh was born on 30th March, 1853 and he died on 29th July, 1890. Van Gogh, who was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter, is maybe one of the most famous figures in the history of Western Art. He created around 2,100 artworks in just 10 years in which he included landscapes, still lives, portraits, and self portraits.This painter also contributed to the foundation of modern art, which is an artistic movement during the period extending from 1960 to 1970.

If we went back to his childhood, we would see that Van Gogh had painted since he was two years old. He was serious, quiet and thoughful. However, he showed signs of mental instability, but he had never worried about this until he started to suffer psychotic episodes and delusion. In my opinion he wasn't too worried about it as he continued drinking heavily and not eating properly. His friendship with Gauguin, who was a French artist, ended when Van Gogh threatened him with a razor, and in a rage, cut off part of his own left ear. Afterwards, Van Gogh was admitted in a psychiatric hospital in Saint- Rémy until his condition stabilised, but just some time after leaving the hospital, on 27th July 1890, he shot hymself in the chest with a revolver as his brother a few weeks before told him thathe couldn't support him financially any longer. Van Gogh died definetely on 29th July from his injures.


Summer is time to have fun with your friends, to go out all the day, to do exercise or simply to relax while you read a book. In conclusion, summer is the time when we don't have to worry about anything. I reckon all summers are similar, that is to say, we usually do the same things, as going to the beach, to the swimming pool, etc. But this summer has had something different. A new game has been created and it's called 'Pokemon go'.

Resultado de imagen de IMAGENES POKEMON GOPokemon Go is about capturing Pokemons from your mobile phone. The innovation of this game is that you must walk to capture them, so Gamers have had to get up from their chairs and go out to play this game. There are also 'Pokeparadas' where you can find 'Pokeballs' and 'PokeGyms', where you can train your pokemon and be the King of the gym. I think there is one thing that none of my xclassmates has commented. It's that there are three teams: Mystic, which is the blue team. Instinct, which is the yellow team and finally, the read team which is called Team Valor. In my opinion, it's a great game and it's very funny. Lots of people say: What a boring game it is! Most people also say that we are wasting our time playing it, but I don't think so at all. Every Sunday in summer I went with my friends to the beach and we played Pokemon Go and I have to say that thanks to this game we have met a lot of new very nice people. In addition, there were many times when we were looking for certain pokemon and boys that had already found them told us where they were, so Pokemon Go players aren't a group of antisocial people. They are great people who love pokemon. However, there are people who are very crazy and they have died because of the game,as they wanted to capture them in dangerous places or they crossed a roadwithout looking.

In my opinion, this game became very popular as Youtubers played it. For example, LuzuGames, a youtuber who spent about 15 hours in the Pier of Santa Monica(The Angels)catching Magikarps to envolve them in a Gyarados. There are also another one who has lost weight, so that's another of its advantages. However, there are already some tricks like FAKE GPS, an app which is in the app store and which you can travel with around the world without leaving home.
Nowadays, the game isn’t as popular as before, so I don’t play it any longer, but there are still people who keep on playing. For example, yesterday evening I saw a group of children playing. I think I will always remember it!

                                                                                                         52 GRANADA STREET
                                                                                                          10th September, 2016

Dear Valeria,

                I'm writing to you because we haven't talked for ages. How are you in England? How are things there? I hope you're fine. The summer has already finished and classes are starting. How sad I feel! This summer has been amazing! In June, I went to Madrid with my family and we visited Madrid's most important places. In addition, we went to the Warner Bros, which is a theme park. We had a lot of fun there! The rest of the summer I have gone to the beach and to the swimming pool almost every day. I really love swimming. On the contrary, on winter I don't usually practice it.

               As I said before, on 15th September we are starting classes. I reckon this year I'm going to study more and I'm going to do all my homework, because I want to get high marks as I'm in 1º Bachillerato,  and I want to get the b2 in English and the b1 in French. However, I also want to go out with my friends in the afternoons. This year I'm going to start to do contemporary dancing which is another of my interests. I still don't know the timetable, but I think I will practice it twice a week. I real love dancing. For that reason I want to learn. I think it will be very funny since I will meet new people. Don't you think so?

                Apart from dancing and swimming, I have taken up other interests since you went to England, as going shopping or watching YouTube. I would say that the interest I like the most is watching videos in YouTube. I spend about three hours a day, listening to music or watching videos from youtubers like el Rubius, Auron Play, Wismichu, etc. I watch YouTube even if I'm having lunch. Do you know who the Rubius is, Valeria? He has over 20,000,000 subscribers. I don't know what else I can tell you. I hope you read this letter and, please, write me soon.


Maria Jose.
