    He feels good, exhausted, excited and happy.

    2 – What is Pau Gasol looking forward?
    He is looking the interviewer.

    3 – Why would Jessica Ennis choose Mauritius and New York as favourite destinations for a holiday?
    Mauritius because it’s a beautiful place to relax and bit for beaches weather. And New York it’s good for a shopping holiday.

    4 – Does Jessica have any pre-performance rituals? Which ones?
    Yes, but she says that are top secret.

    5 – How does Jessica see herself in 5 years time?

    6 – What do you think about Pau Gasol’s accent in English?
    I think he has a good accent, I don’t think he spokes bad English.

    We could say that Ricky Rubio and Xabi Alonso have a worst accent compared to Pau Gasol’s. But the two athletes understand the English as well. It’s true that Ricky Rubio in one question that asked to him had to have some help to understood it, but the two athletes have generally taken the interview well and without problems to understand the interviewer.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VexAQ8_IzQ (Valentino Rossi)

    *I think the English that Rossi speak is more understanding than Nadal’s one. Because in part he speaks slowly and with some Italian accent behind.
    From my point of view I should not understand what Nadal’s said in the interview, and he talked very quietly.
    I really prefer more, Rossi’s ones, because it’s more easy to understand and more clear.

    Full good, exhausted, really happy, very pretended

    2 – What is Pau Gasol looking forward?
    He looks forward to be with a team.

    3 – Why would Jessica Ennis choose Mauritius and New York as favourite destinations for a holiday?
    Mauritius because is just a lovely place to relax and New York for an active shopping holiday.

    4 – Does Jessica have any pre-performance rituals? Which ones?
    Yes, she has some routines, rituals for the day before or before a race but they are top secret.

    5 – How does Jessica see herself in 5 years’ time?
    Hopefully still be competing, hopefully married and maybe a child.

    6 – What do you think about Pau Gasol’s accent in English?
    It’s OK, it’s not the English accent but it’s really good. Maybe ( for me ) a little bit difficult to understand.

    I only find this one but I can tell that Pau Gasol’s accent is better than the accent of Marina Alabau. I think that Marina doesn’t know a lot of English because she doesn’t make good sentences and also she doesn’t know how to pronounce some words. She tries to say what she wants, and the people understand her but, her sentences are not correct. However, Pau Gasol has got to speak in English on Tv a lot of times and that’s why he knows more English and that’s why his accent and pronunciation are better.

    1.- What four adjectives does Pau Gasol use to describe how he feels?
    *Pau Gasol feels good, crazy, really excited ad very happy.
    2.-What is Pau Gasol looking forward?
    *He said that he want to play tomorrow and met his new teammates from The Lakers.
    3.-Why would Jessica Ennis choose Mauritius and New York as favourite destinations for a holiday?
    *Mauritius would be a lovely place to relax and beautiful beaches and Nuw York would be a shoping holiday
    4.-Does Jessica have any pre-performance rituals? Which ones?
    * She has some rituals but are private. I don’t know because she said is top secret and she keep it to herself
    5.-How does Jessica see herself in 5 years time?
    * She wants to get married and take care of a child. She still completen now
    6.-What do you think about Pau Gasol’s accent in English?
    * I think Pau Gasol’s accent is quiet good because his pronunciation and the words he used were very good

    *Rafa Nadal’s link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bNVw-Ma5wE
    I think Rafa Nadal’s pronunciation would be comparated with Pau Gasol’s one because Gasol talks with his teammates in American English and is quiet good speaking in English and Rafa Nadal is also good in English because he used some technical words. Both are good in thes language
    * Gerard Pique’s link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7I8tzEe5UFQ&feature=fvwrel
    I think Gerard Pique’s pronunciation is very disappointing because he always repeats the same words and get stopped at some sentences. I’m absolutely convinced that Pau is ten times better than Pique in speaking and in pronunciation, also Gasol gets an extra help from his mates from The Lakers.

    Rafa Nadal speaks English so well, but his accent is not very good. Because he’s from Mallorca and Mallorca’s accent is horrible to speak English in a good way. Also, in this video is very sad because he lose the Roland Garros. He knows how talk, but he hasn’t got a good fluency

    Fernando Torres have more fluency that Rafa Nadal, but he had the same problem, his accent is very Spanish. Pau Gasol speaks english perfectly, because he lives in USA, but Rafa Nadal and Fernando Torres also have a good english taking into account that they live in Spain.

    6-What do you think about Pau Gasol’s accent in English?
    I think that his English is good, he has an extensive vocabulary and a very good English accent but, also, I think that he speaks very fast and not so clear,

    7-Now time for a little research. Look for two more interviews made to different Spanish sportspeople in English and paste the links into your post. Then make a little reflection on their use of English and accent, comparing it to Pau Gasol’s. (50 -70 words)
    Rafa Nadal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6Ke27m8iMY
    Fernando Alonso: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFqD75Gg17I

    The best English of the three athletes is the one of Pau Gasol. Perhaps, he speaks very fast but his accent is good. In contrast of Rafa Nadal and Fernando Alonso that have a strong Spanish accent and they don’t pronounce good some words. Even so, they have an extensive vocabulary,like Pau Gasol, and you can understand perfectly what they are saying in English.

    I watched an interview to Penelope Cruz about the film “Pirates of the Caribbean: on stranger tides”. Her English is so different from Pau Gasol’s. Her roots are obvious, I mean, when she speaks it shows a lot that she’s Spanish, she has got Spanish accent when she speaks English. She neither can speak as fluidly as Gasol, she looks for the words a little while, when Gasol speaks naturally. But she gets herself to be understood and that’s really what matters.

    I Think Nadal has a not so good english, Pau’s is better, he has more fluency and a lot of vocabulary and he looks like an english person. Rafa has more problems in the accent, i think. The other video is about Gerard Piqué and i think it’s the worst accent and he has problmes for express him.

    This one is very short, but I didn’t find the full interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRwTNFTLX0E
    This other is about Nadal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=raFjCTqbFaY
    If you compare Pau Gasol’s accent with this videos, you can say that he has a very good accent and that he speaks a very good english. I chose the first video because it’s the worst (or almost the worst) accent, proninciation, etc. in english i’ve heard. The sentence which impacted me most was the literal translation of the spanish typical sentence: “De esta agua no beberé”- From this water I will not drink. That make me remember a Gomaespuma english video. Then the next video, in which Rafa Nadal speaks about Roland Garros. Rafa Nadal’s english have been criticated by many journalists and sportspeople, for example by Roger Federer.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/video/2012/may/05/rafael-nadal-london-olympics-2012-video

    I searched, but I just found that video about Rafael Nadal.I think that Pau Gasol has a big difference in therms of englishs speaking than Rafa nadal, because rafa is from mallorca and its a little hard tom pronounce english if you are of some parts of Mallorca.

    Fernando Alonso has a lot of English vocabulary, but his pronunciation it’s not very correct in some words and they seem influenced a little bit by the Spanish, but other words are pronounced perfectly.

    Dani Pedrosa speaks very good, and his pronunciation is also very good, but I prefer Paul Gasol’s pronunciation, because it’s more flued.

    Interview with Rafael Nadal:

    Interview with Riki Rubio:

    I think that Rafa and Riki have another accent of Pau, Pau have a best accent that the others, Rafa and Riki have Spanish accent and you can notice this accent. But I think that the accent is not very important, is more important the pronunciation, and they have a good pronunciation and they can speak very fluent.

    -I think Rafa Nadal English it’s ok, the people understand him, but his pronuncation is not very good because it is very noticeable the Catalan accent. Also I think he hasn’t got enough fluency. In the same way I think Carlos Tévez English is worse than Rafa Ranal and the pronuntation is horrible, he hasn’t got good fluency. I even think that our class has more level than Carlos Tévez.
    Pau Gasol speaks a perfect English but he has an advantage, that he lives there and he has to talk every day in English.

    RAFA NADAL

    CRISTIANO RONALDO

    I think that the accent of Rafa Nadal and Cristiano Ronaldo are better than the accent of Paul Gasol.
    The only athlete that talks very good and it isn’t difficult to understand him is Cristiano Ronaldo. Also Rafa Nadal is more fluent when he talks than the other two athletes. I notice that Pau Gasol is the one who is calm when he is talking and not as nervous as the other athletes.
    Rafa Nadal talks very fast and some of the words that he said are difficult to understand for the people that listen him. Also he talks with a lot of naturalness when he speaks English.
    I notice that Cristiano Ronaldo was a little bit nervous when he talked but his English is really good. Also he talks clear and fluent.
    Paul Gasol is a little bit difficult to understand but his English is so good.

    I put only one video becouse it is a little bit large, I’m a barça fan but I chose these video becouse Kaka is one of my favourite players, for me is like a hero, I like very much how he plays so I chose these interview. In these video Kaka talk about her live in Madrid and her futbolistic live. I think Kaka’s English is similar as Gasol ones.

    – Rafa Nadal’s accent is not very good. He has an excuse, he lives in Spain and is therefore not entirely perfect pronounced compared with others who are from the USA and live there.

    – Cesc Fabregas’s accent is perfect and very good. His accent is better than Rafa Nadal. He is from Spain but has been in different countries so speaks English well.

    I think ricky has worst english but its more conprehensible than Pau gasols. Because Pau Gasol has an stronger accent and Ricky hides his a little bit.But there is one thing that i can say that ricky rubio did very well because with the basics he has done more simple but correct sentences and could talk fluid without stoping the interview because the interviewer didnt understand him and i think he did good.

    I think Gasol’s accent can be better than the most of the spanish sportpeople. Rafel’s accent is nice. Like the most of the spanish sport people. Is not perfect but is okay. But the Lorenzo’s accent is very bad. I think some people of our class can speak better in Enlgish that Jorge Lorenzo. I’m very surprised!

    -The first video is an interview of the motorcycle racer, Jorge Lorenzo:

    Well, obviously his accent is very lower than Paul’s accent. He said some words without pronouncing in an English way. He speaks with a Spanish accent.
    And the second, is an interview of the basketball player, Rudy Fernandez:

    This player, also doesn’t have a brilliant English accent because it was an interview when he started to play in the NBA. In my opinion, the best English spoken is Pau.

    6 – What do you think about Pau Gasol’s accent in English?
    I think Pau’s accent is very good, but it’s because he lives in E.E.U.U and he allways stays with people who speak english and he can improve his english.

    I think Xabi Alonso speaking is good but he has spanish accent and I think he needs to improve his english. His speaking is understable and it’s good but if he talk with an english man or woman he would know he’s spanish.

    Pepe Reina’s speaking I think it’s a little better than Xabi’s but it’s not so far from him. I think it’s obvious he is spanish.

    My conclusion is they speak English with spanish accent because they can’t improve like Pau Gasol which he speaks with english people every day.

      Ups, the text had not be posted. It is an error. Well, this is my text:
      -Cesc Fabregas speaks with a good English accent. But it is not better than Pau Gasol’s accent, because Pau lives in USA and Cesc Fabregas lives in Spain. So Pau has more fluency.
      -David Ferrer has a bad English accent, it can’t be compared with Pau Gasol’s accent. He has Spanish accent and he has a very bad pronuntiation.

    -Fernando Alonso’s interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwNKZq1whG4.
    -Rafa Nadal’s interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3w-bM2mCMA
    -Joaquin Rodriguez’s interview:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7uKDjQ-njo

    I compared the english accent of three differents interviews of spanish sportists (Fernando Alonso, Rafa Nadal and Joaquin Rodriguez) with Pau Gasol’s english accent.
    In one hand Fernando Alonso and Rafa Nadal’s accent is worst than Pau Gasol’s. And it is ealsy to understand for me.
    On the other hand, the Joaquin Rodriguez’s english accent is similar than Pau Gasol’s and it is a little bit difficult to understand for me.

    About Jorge Lorenzo I think that he doesn’t have a very good english comparing with Pau Gasol, because I think that he don’t practice his english and Pau Gasol talk often in english and in tv.

    *http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BmTmzKh140
    And about Pedro de la Rosa I have to say that I understand better Pedro than Pau. I think the accent of Pedro is more understandable than the accent of Pau.

    I think in this video Rafa Nadal talks so clear, but I have seen other videos in whiches he talked worst. My opinion is that Rafa hasn’t a very good accent, but we are from the same place that him and we talk similarly, so we understand him easier than an english person for example.

    I think Sergio Garcia, the golf player, talks better than Rafa Nadal and Pau Gasol, but it’s also obvious that he isn’t from a country where the official language is the english.

    Alonso has a good, fluent english, but he has a very strong spanish accent (not like Gasol that has a good, american accent). He has a good mastery of the language, and a good vocabulary.

    http://youtu.be/qihZMvvXVl8 Rafael Nadal.

    Nadal has a good, and fluent english and a little bit more standart english. But sometimes he stops to think what word to say. Pau Gasol has a better mastery of the language, and a more fluent english.
