16th January 2015 (Friday)

Hello everybody!!
As Gustavo was taking the make up exam today is my turn to write the Journal.
At the beginning of the lesson some people have started taking the make up exam, and the rest of the group has corrected a scheme for today :

It was about the Napoleonic Era: Napoleon Bonaparte reached power when he gave a coup d'Etat the new government was called consulate and it was divided into two stages the Triumuirate and the Consulate in which Napoleon was first and only consul for life. After that the main facts where the administrative reform or the concordat with the Pope
His empire: the French empire expanded and it had many allie countries as Spain, part of Italy, Denmark... The enemy countries were Great Britain, Portugal, and Russia. He proposed a continental blockade that means that buying or selling products to Great Britain was forbbiden and the countries wich didn't obey were punished whith the invasion: The invasion of Portugal was stopped by the peninsular war in Spain and it was his 1st defeat and later the invasion of Russia was also adisaster because the russians used techniques as the scorched-earth tactic in wiche they burnt cities and in that way the french didn't have resources and then they were atacked it was also extreme cold.
The  Empire ended with the battle of Waterloo where he was defeated and confined in the island of Saint Helena.

Then Paqui has given us to do at home a scheme about the congress of Vienna and Restoration at home.
After that we have spoken about the trouble in France and about the Islamic state

At the end of the lesson we have seen a very funny video about th French Revolution .
Today we have learnt many words and they boys have laughed a lot with them:
To suck up to: hacer la pelota
Butt-kisser (you can imagine)
cattle: ganado

Napoleon Bonaparte

Hello,

These are my corrections. Remember that the proper nouns and the names of nationalities are in capital letters. Be also careful with verb tenses:

One thing you forgot was the Battle of Leipzig and Napoleon's confinement in the island of Elba and his comeback in 1815 (Hundred Days Empire).

I don't understand the video, but I like the quote, even if it wasn't true. He didn't care much about the happiness of his people.

Bye!
That's all.
