Your next blog writing assignment. This will be all about you. You need to write a mini autobiography that includes your name, origin, age, birthday, a description of your physical characteristics (at least 3 adjs), your personality (at least 2 adjs), your hair and eye color, things you like and dislike (at least 4 of each) and finally, activities you like to do (this will use our new vocabulary - use at least 4). Also, include activities you don't like to do (at least 3). Use conjunction words - porque y and pero. Also include words/phrases like también, a mi tampoco, no me gusta para nada. By explaining why you like or dislike something will make you more interesting. It will also let you show off all the Spanish you have learned so far. :)
