Here’s the biography we worked in class. Find, copy and paste ONE sentence according to the characteristics required.

MY BIOGRAPHY

I was born in Yopal, Casanare in 1971. My parents moved to Bogotá in 1978 and we have lived here since then. I studied at Colegio Champagnat and then at Gimasio Granadino. I graduated in 1990. Since I was 15, I have liked languages very much. For that reason, I decided to study modern languages at university.

I got married in 1998 and in 1999, my daughter was born. Her name is Silvana. She studies at Gimnasio La Montaña and she likes English very much. We live in San José de Bavaria. My wife works at Gimnasio La Montaña where she has worked as a biology teacher for two years.

My wife is studying on Saturdays. She wants to be a bilingual teacher so she goes to university. She is studying Bilingual Education at Universidad El Bosque. She has been working very hard these days as she is in exams.

My wife and I had plans of living in the US when we got married. However, on September 11, 2001, I was working at Gimasio La Montaña and I got really scared because I thought the Third World War had started. Unfortunately, in the US, they got scared too and my dreams of living in that country were smashed.

When my wife and I grow old, we are going to buy a house in Santa Marta. We are going to spend the last years of our lives in that city. I hope my daughter marries a good man and has nice children. I think she will.
