Hi classmates!Today I'm in charge  of doing the journal.
Today Paqui has brought two catalogues to get ideas for the new project. 
Then she has continued explaining the Bismarckian systems. Itt was a system of alliances designed by Otto Von Bismarck, a German chancellor. It was made to isolate France and keep the balance of powers of the Congress of Vienna. Germany signed separated alliances with Austrua-Hungary and Russia and later Germany, A-H and Italy signed the triple Alliance. When Bismarck was dismissed, the Alliance with Russia wasn't renewed and Russia signed an alliance with France.
At the beginning of the 20TH century Russia, France and the UK signed several alliances between them that brought to the creation of the of the Triple Entente.

Hello,

Your work is careless. You have to read before posting and review the spelling mistakes and not use abbreviations, but the complete words. As Andrei told you, you forgot other things we did in class.

This is the text corrected:
