Mi Colegio

Mi colegio es en las afueras de la ciudad de…………………….  Es mixto con unos 800 almunos.  Es un edificio moderno de tres plantas.  Tiene muchos instalaciones interesantes como un piscina  y unos campos de futbol.  Mi gustan los deportes.  Los profesores son estrictos y nos mandan muchas deberes.  No mi gustan mucho.  Lo major de mi colegio es tengo muchos amigos.  Lo peor de mi colegio es que hay muchas normas como no podemos tener el móvil en clase y tenemos que llevar un uniform muy feo.  Las clases empizan a las nueve y terminan a las tres y media.  Yo estudio inglés, matematicas, historia, música, geografia, religion, educación física, ciencias y español.  Mi prefiero música.  Voy bien en todas mis asignaturas.  En el futuro quiero estudiar en la Universidad.  Quiero ser ingeniero.

Content

This piece of writing does contain content which is relevant with an adequate sense of structure. There are some ideas and opinions (mi gustan, no mi gustan, mi prefiero, uniform muy feo), although these are marred by grammatical errors. Ideas and opinions are expressed but in a fairly limited way.

Accuracy

As mentioned there are a number of grammatical errors but overall the grammatical accuracy is adequate. The spelling is mostly accurate but there are some errors (uniform, empizan, major) which do detract from the overall impression. 

Language resource

There is some attempt to use detailed language (instalaciones interesantes, nos mandan muchos deberes, voy bien en….) but the sentences are short and there is little attempt to use linking words which would have made the writing flow better. The verbs are mostly correct although they are all in the present tense (appropriate for the subject matter).
