He studied the biology career. In 1989 he started to study the malaria, and in a short time, he went to Zimbawe to study it. Qhen he was there, his daughter died.

He said that you can’t have a good career, because you are afraid of doing that or you think that you aren’t so much intelligent to do it.

While we were reading we had to complete the text with the words that were given. When we finished this activity, we did a listening to check if we were right and then we did an activity about synonims. Finally, in pairs, we ask the questions that were in the sheet.of paper.Some of this questions were: what do you think when yo listen the word “talkative”?
