A reindeer on a tram? What’s so strange about that?

By Y.Muriel


I can see an old woman knitting and a reindeer on a local train. I reckon they must be travelling to a Christmas party to show the reindeer to the kids. They must be going from New York to Boston along the coast. It must be winter because the woman is wearing a winter coat. Probably, it might be snowing outside. So the woman might be knitting an argyle sweater with a red and green diamond pattern for the reindeer. Maybe, she might have saved the reindeer from some hunters, so this deer may have become her pet because it seems to be comfortable next to her.

Gender equality

I explain this article in the online voice record:



One day in 1975, the women of Iceland stopped work and refused to do the housework because they wanted men respected their work, and equal wage.

In 2018, Iceland was the first country in the world where the companies have to prove gender equality. So Iceland is called the best place in the world for the woman.

There are a lot of female managers in Iceland who don’t give up their work to have children. In 1980, Iceland had a female president of the country that was the first female president in Europe at once. She says the “” was the beginning for women’s equal rights. One of the consequence was she was president.

However, after her, Iceland didn’t have another female president and the parliament losed woman and unequal rights still is.

Nowadays, the grown woman of Iceland do not want to wait for equal pay at work. Perhaps, the Iceland’s new law allows this gender equality.

Giving a Business presentation: Green Kitchen

By Y.Muriel

I explain this Business presentation of a new business Green Kitchen in this web record voice:



Good morning, everyone,

Welcome to our annual entrepreneurship conference.

First, let me introduce myself. I am Yolanda from Green kitchen.

Let me start by giving some background information. As you’re aware, millions of tons of food are thrown away in Spain every year. It’s a scandal to waste this food when so many people in the country are hungry. So my new business wants to raise awareness about this unfairness.

I would like to introduce you to Green Kitchen, an original new restaurant which uses discarded food from supermarkets and restaurant rubbish bins. This restaurant will be located in a cool neighbourhood in Barcelona ,where it is the first of this type.

We think that Green Kitchen will be a hit with a wide range of customers, in particular business people, hipsters, homeless and unemployed.

What makes special our restaurant is that we will offer a menu always different, depending on what kind of food we get on farms, supermarkets skips and outside restaurants, which was passed the sell-by date but it is safe to eat. We have to remember that we put the food into a fridge straightaway so there isn’t a chance of food poisoning.

Turning our attention now to the low prices of the restaurant, I would like to illustrate this point by showing you a chart of the prices of other restaurants in the same neighbourhood.

In conclusion, I think I have a fun idea of restaurant where we create meals with food taken from rubbish bins. So, people will enjoy this sustainable experience because they will save money.

The worst break holiday

By Y.Muriel

 Mrs. Willa Norris
Cheap Holidays Now
71 Lambert Road

Dear Mrs. Norris

I am writing to express my strong dissatisfaction with our family holiday in Vistamar resort which I booked through your online company.

What we expected was an accommodation in a modern 4-star hotel by the sea,  which includes design furniture and bright colours, and extra comforts like Wi-Fi access and television. Not only was the hotel 15 miles from the sea, but also the stylish look of the building was old-fashioned and dusty carpets.

On arrival to the city, the private taxi to transfer us from the airport to the hotel never turned up. In addition to this, the room was dirty and the shower was broken. To make matters even worse, the room didn’t have what we had ordered because there  was not a queen-size bed,   Wi-Fi access and sea-views. Leer más de esta entrada

Have you ever been to A&E?

By Y.Muriel

On Saturday morning, I was walking to the bakery with my mother, when I didn’t know why, I stepped off the curb without looking at both sides. Immediately, I was hit by a car whose driver drove away. My mother was shocked. What a nightmare! She didn’t believe what was happening.

After a few minutes, she called an ambulance, so we went to Accident and Emergency. Two orderlies moved me to the X-ray department. I had an X-ray of my head taken. After that, a doctor took my pulse and my temperature. Then, he listened my heart and my lungs with his stethoscope. Finally, after the scan results, the doctor said that I was out of any real danger like a hairline fracture of the skull. I thanked him and I drove home.
