  3. The Jonas Brothers!! My favourite band!
    I love this song!!
    I thing your blog is really cool. We support our English teacher! =D

  4. I Like my English teacher's blog "For English Fans". I like the decoration in blue, because I love blue. I think that the news about what happened in Haiti is a big tragedy. One earthquake of 7.0 magnitude, one of the tragedie of the world.
    Many people and things under the rubble, and now their isn't food, water, houses, hospitals,...
    A big help from many countries, incluing Portugal to help Haiti, with food, hot clothes, water, medicines and other good will be welcome.
    It's really sad, because many families are alone. Many children do not fiund their parents.
    I hope these childrens will be happy soon and the reconstruction to be fast.
