Hello, Hemingway

First voice in our hearts

that tells us that love has come,

first beat of our sweet sixteen

looking for love.

Nothing in the world can be better

that listening to that happy beat...

... for heaven's sake,

I lowly beg you to listen to me

as well as your only-Begotten

assisted the good thief...

oh... oh...,

it was really,

oh... oh...,


Ill be able to return to that sweet...

Hurry, Larita;

your lunch will get cold!

St. Dimas give me back my earring, thief.

Give me back my earring, thief!

Come on, girl, finish up.

Hey, Larita, hurry

or I won't wait for you.

oh, cousin, you think I can still

do with this blouse?

- Look at that...

- Let me see.


Look, like that youre trendier

and you hide the patch.

oh, but if its the Elvis Presley style.

I think you care more about self-love

than about your studies.

oh, no, of course not, Aunt Rosenda,

if it were so, I wouldnt

go to high-school.

Mom, Im leaving.

- Be careful, sweetie, yes?

- Yes.

Lalita, Im leaving;

Im not waiting for you.

- oh, wait for me.

- Im leaving. Bye, grandma.

- Girl, but...

- oh, no way, bye family.

Girl, eat,

that you cant live on studying alone.

- No way, Josefa, I have no time.

- Just a moment...

May St. Lazarus, the Virgin

of Regla, Charity

and your guardian angel

be with you, sweetie.

Praise be to God, Josefa,

what I have in tow is a procession.

- Hey, uncle... uncle, wait.

- okay, okay, okay... eh?

Hey, whats wrong with this girl

that shes always in a rush.


Wait up, cousin.

A man can be destroyed

but not conquered.

Grammatically, we can see

a passive voice in that sentence.

Which is the passive voice?

Underline it, Marisabel, please.

Can be destroyed...

You know the passive voice

is formed with the verb To BE

and the participle of the main

verb in the sentence.

Tomorrow I want you to bring me

three sentences in the passive voice

with the verbs that are

on the left of the blackboard.

Hey, the three Maras,

and the one in the middle is mine.

Hey, and who told you Im yours?

- Adela told me...

- Y if she passes Ill kill her.

Hey, Larita, arent you coming

to the ice-cream parlor?

- No, I cant now.

- I treat, serious, I treat.

- I cant.

- Victor.

Remember we have to draft

the association rules.


See you tonight at your place.

Hey, but for the nth time.

Are you drafting the rules or what?


Come on, the ice cream will melt.

No, I cant.

I have to see Dr. Martnez.

Thank you very much

for lending it to me, Doctor.

Thanks to you it got an award.

I put a new cover on it.

And thanks to your

studying, Hilaria,

otherwise, the loan would

have been useless.

In fact, you can have it.

- oh, no, Doctor, I cant accept it.

- Why not?

I don't know, Im embarrassed.

Embarrassed that youre given a gift

for your outstanding grades.

oh, thank you, Doctor.

By the way, Hilaria,

how about the other subjects?

Any flunks?


The best I have are:

first yours...

A great 1oo...

and literature.


Doctor, I wanted to ask you a favor.

Yes, lets see.

on the bulletin board theres

an announcement

of scholarships to

study in the U. S.
