ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES ABOUT SCHOLARSHIPS HOMEWORKWRITE DOWN AN ESSAY IN WHICH YOU MENTION WHAT YOUTHINK ARE THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF THESCHOLARSHIPS THAT HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED BY THEECUADORIAN GOVERMENT. (SENESCYT)SENESCYT announced the opening of the 2012 scholarshipprograms aimed at Ecuadorians who want to study for degrees inthird and fourth levels. I think these programs are very goodbecause poor students can now study abroad, no matter that theyhavent money, is only important to be very intelligent. I think one of the main advantages of the scholarship is that all Ecuadorians can follow studied, regardless of economic conditions; another advantage is that I believe that a country develops; only educating its people. I also think that now if Ecuadorian State is giving the money belongs to education, but it is also important that people, who earn a scholarship student, return the country to contribute with their knowledge to local students. I believe that there are no disadvantages but if the government does not give specializations agricultural, people will leave the field, and then there wont be food for people.To finish my homework I think the scholarship is the best that theEcuadorian government has thought, because I believe that in a fewyears, Ecuadorians have a better life.

RESEARCH ABOUT CONDITIONALS RESEACRH NUMBER 1 (CONDITIONALS)English learners should study conditional forms to speak about past, present and futuresituations that depend on other events happening. There are four forms of theconditional in English. In general,conditionalsentenceshave the word"if".Note thatthere is noconditionaltensefor theEnglish andavailable in Spanish. At thesame time, use the auxiliary verb"would"to form theconditionalin English. CONDITIONAL TYPESZeroConditional (Type 0)Using this type of condition is when the condition and the result is always true, such asscientific facts. IF Condition Result If. Present simple Present simpleExamples: If you heat water to 100° C, it boils. / Water boils if you heat it to 100° C. If I dont practice the piano everyday I play poorly. / I play the piano poorly if I dont practice everyday. Does your mom get mad if you dont call her? / If you dont call your mom, does she get mad?Note: We canchange the order ofthesentenceswithout changingthe meaning.Also,ingeneralthis type ofconditional, we can replace "if" to "when" without altering themeaning.FirstConditional (Type 1)
This type of conditional uses: for the future and in cases where it is likely that thecondition will pass. IF Condition Result If. Present simple Future simple ("will")Examples: If Bill studies, he will pass the exam. / Bill will pass the exam if he studies. If it doesnt rain, we will go to the beach. / We will go to the beach if it doesnt rain. Will you take the train if you miss the bus? / If you miss the bus, will you take the train?NOTE: You can use some modal verbsinstead of"will"to changethe likelihoodorexpress an opinion.For moreinformation,seethe lesson onmodal verbs.Examples: If it doesnt rain, we may go to the beach. If it doesnt rain we should go to the beach. If it doesnt rain we can go to the beach.SecondConditional (Type 2)Type 2is usedto express anunrealpossibilityin the present,asa wish ora dream, orfor anaction inthe futurenot aslikely. IF Condition Result If. Past simple "Would" + infinitiveExamples: If I won the lottery, I would travel around the world. / I would travel around the world if I won the lottery. If Rachel had more time, she would learn to play the guitar. / Rachel would learn to play the guitar if she had more time. Would you be happy if you were to get married? / If you were to get married, would you be happy?
Note:Asin type 1, you can use othermodal verbsinstead of"would"to change themeaningand possibility.ThirdConditional (Type 3)In contrast to types 1 and 2, we use the third type of conditional when talking about acondition in the past that has not happened. IF Condition Result If. Past perfect "Would have" + past participle Examples: If I had known, then what I know now, I would have done things differently. / I would have done things differently if I had known then what I know now Suzanne wouldnt have had the heart attack if she had gone on a diet as her doctor recommended. / If Suzanne had gone on a diet as her doctor recommended she wouldnt have had the heart attack. Would you have liked to go to university if you had been able to afford it? / If you had been able to afford it, would you have liked to go to university?Note: As thetypes 1 and2, you canuse othermodal verbsinstead of"would"to changethe meaningand probability.

UniversityofCambrid gein the UKif all these things come true, Id be the happiest man in the world becauseI think my family is more important to me, well if I had a lot of money, Icould help poor children and the elderly, If I study hard Im sure this willcome true.

This enriches thework, and minimizes frustrations.I thinktheteamworkwe getbetter results thananyindividual work, andalsoteam membersachieve greatermotivation.The factof beingpart ofa teammembermakesto increase theirmotivationto work, generally,all group work,havegreater acceptance bygroup membersbecausethey haveall activelyparticipated.
DISADVANTAGESOF TEAMWORK:The maindisadvantages of workinginuniversity groupare:Oftenworkin groupsbringdiscomfort, becauseusuallynot allmembersof theteam,help makethe work, for this reasonthemembersthat if they work, they feel very unhappy, is alsoverydifficult to findacceptance by alldecisions madein group work.Also another disadvantage is the lack of cooperation from membersof the team to go to meetings, this occurs when there is a leader inthe team.Finally differences in ways of thinking can lead to arguments thatdivide the group.COMMENT: I believe that the university had the best result in the assessmentfor the good teamwork that has been done, and our authorities needto continue working together to continue to have successes

RESEARCH ABOUT PASSIVE VOCIE Passive Voice Use of Passive Passive voice is used when the focus is on the action. It is not important or not known; however, who or what is performing the action. Example: My bike was stolen. In the example above, the focus is on the fact that my bike was stolen. I do not know, however, who did it. Sometimes a statement in passive is more polite than active voice, as the following example shows: Example: A mistake was made. In this case, I focus on the fact that a mistake was made, but I do not blame anyone (e.g. you have made a mistake.). Form of Passive Subject + finite form of to be + Past Participle (3rd column of irregular verbs) Example: A letter was written. When rewriting active sentences in passive voice, note the following: the object of the active sentence becomes the subject of the passive sentence the finite form of the verb is changed (to be + past participle) the subject of the active sentence becomes the object of the passive sentence (or is dropped) Examples of Passive Tense Subject Verb Object writes aletter. Simple Active: Rita Present Passive: A letter iswritten by Rita. Simple Past Active: Rita wrote aletter. Passive: A letter waswritten by Rita. PresentPerfect Active: Rita has written aletter.
Passive: A letter has beenwritten by Rita.Future I Active: Rita willwrite aletter. Passive: A letter will be written by Rita.Hilfsverben Active: Rita can write aletter. Passive: A letter can be written by Rita.Examples of PassiveTense Subject Verb Object iswriting aletter.PresentProgressive Active: Rita Passive: A letter isbeingwritten by Rita.PastProgressive Active: Rita waswriting aletter. Passive: A letter wasbeingwritten by Rita.PastPerfect Active: Rita hadwritten aletter. Passive: A letter hadbeenwritten by Rita.Future II Active: Rita willhavewritten aletter. Passive: A letter willhavebeenwritten by Rita.Conditional I Active: Rita wouldwrite aletter. Passive: A letter would be written by Rita.Conditional II Active: Rita wouldhavewritten aletter. Passive: A letter wouldhavebeenwritten by Rita.Passive Sentences with Two ObjectsRewriting an active sentence with two objects in passive voice means that one of thetwo objects becomes the subject, the other one remains an object. Which object totransform into a subject depends on what you want to put the focus on.
Subject Verb Object 1 Object 2 wrote a letter to me.Active: RitaPassive: A letter waswritten to me by Rita.Passive: I waswritten a letter by Rita.. As you can see in the examples, adding by Rita does not sound very elegant. That’s why it is usually dropped.Personal and Impersonal Passive Personal Passive simply means that the object of the active sentence becomes the subject of the passive sentence. So every verb that needs an object (transitive verb) can form a personal passive. Example: They build houses. – Houses are built. Verbs without an object (intransitive verb) normally cannot form a personal passive sentence (as there is no object that can become the subject of the passive sentence). If you want to use an intransitive verb in passive voice, you need an impersonal construction – therefore this passive is called Impersonal Passive. Example: he says – it is said Impersonal Passive is not as common in English as in some other languages (e.g. German, Latin). In English, Impersonal Passive is only possible with verbs of perception (e. g. say, think, know). Example: They say that women live longer than men. – It is said that women live longer than men. Although Impersonal Passive is possible here, Personal Passive is more common. Example: They say that women live longer than men. – Women are said to live longer than men. The subject of the subordinate clause (women) goes to the beginning of the sentence; the verb of perception is put into passive voice. The rest of the sentence is added using an infinitive construction with to (certain auxiliary verbs and that are dropped). Sometimes the term Personal Passive is used in English lessons if the indirect object of an active sentence is to become the subject of the passive sentence. ROOM PROJECT
