Unit 1: Online Dictionaries

Hi there! here is a very interesting text about Google. Hey! We are talking about new technology.

Google's slow transformation into an open, transparent company

To some, Google has long been a champion of open source, hiring top open-source developers and contributing to a range of open-source projects, in addition to its Summer of Code. To others, Google has been the worst enemy of open source, bumping AGPL-based code of its and only selectively contributing back to the projects like Linux and MySQL from which it derives benefit.

In this Unit we learned how to use a dictionary and also we used online's dictionaries. Here is an example of two words from the last paragraph.

Welcome To My Blog

Welcome. This is my blog from one of my "visitor" english experience, this is Level 7 and I am going to improve my english knowlegde because I am thinking of becoming a Teacher Assistant. Here is a little information about me.

Hi, there! My name’s Victor Rincon but you can call me just Victor. I’m from Maracaibo, originally. I live in Maracaibo, in Tierra Negra.

I’m 20 years old and I study engineering at URBE. I’m studying a lot so I can graduate soon. I love being with my girlfriend all the time, I love her, so I love doing all the things with her, watching some movies, going out, listening to music, playing the guitar, playing some games, dancing, talking, studying, travelling.

I hate when people smoke infront of me, getting up early on the weekend, violence, injustice, listening to vallenato, lies, politics.
My dream is to graduate soon to become an Electronic Engineer. I want to work for an international company where I can show and improve my skills, also I can try being an English Teacher as a hobby. I wish to get married and start a family and travel a lot, relaxing.

About English, I think English is very important. I listen to music and watch TV in English. It’s a good exercise. I love to improve all I can because I want to speak the language the same I speak Spanish. It is hard because it is impossible being perfect but I can try. Is one of the most important things in my life if I want to work for an International Company.
