Cmglee_Great_St_MarysCambridge is one of the cities with all the ingredients to have a fantastic day. It is situated in the northeast of United Kingdom.

There are a lot of monuments in this city, but the tower of Great’s St.Mary is one of the most important one. Since the Tower of Great’s St. Mary you have a beautiful view you cannot lost. The cost to enter inside of the Tower is 14 pounds.
And what about having peaceful boat ride or canoeing by the river Cam? It’s beautiful and before the boat ride you can buy fish and chips for only 3 pounds and eat while the ride. The prize of the boat ride is 8 pounds, but it is worthwhile because while you are observing the fantastic city, an audio guide is telling you the history of this monuments and interesting details.
After that, you can go to the King’s College Chapel to see the beautiful architectural jewel. The King’s College Chapel is beautiful inside and outside because of their glass windows, their organ and we can go to an evensong to hear the choir. And remember, it’s free!
And if we are in Cambridge, we should visit the University of Cambridge, one of the most important in the world. Isaac Newton discovered the law of universal gravity and Albert Einstein, who is considered as one of the most important scientific for presenting the theory of relativity, both of them studied at this University, as many other important people.
At the university we can visit the Botanical Garden, a fantastic area to take a rest in the journey and observe more than thousand different species of trees, bushes and flowers. In this Botanical Garden we can take pictures, eat, read a book and also, enjoy outdoor’s performances.

The parks of Cambridge are big and beautiful, so we choose one between Jesus Green, The Backs, Christ's Pieces or Parker's Piece and let's enjoy with a snack. But if you are not tired, what about to play football, or volleyball in these parks? Or maybe you want to ride a bike through these wonderful parks.

In the evening, we can go to The Eagle. This pub is undoubtedly the most famous of Cambridge and a fundamental stop for all those who visit the city. The pub possesses the privilege of having used as operational headquarters for one of the major scientific discoveries as the history, the DNA. The discovery of the "secret of the life", the DNA.

Belfast is the capital city of Northern Ireland, one of the regions of United Kingdom.
Belfast is not in the same isle than England or Scotland, in that case Northern Ireland is in another isle, next to a different country, Ireland. So, Belfast is the major city of the region and it is located in the north east of United Kingdom.
Belfast is a perfect city to travel! It is not so big, then you can visit the city  on foot seeing their typical buildings and their monuments.
There are a lot of interesting things to see and do in Belfast. From the very begginig you have a lot of museums, and a lot of history facts to discover! But i am going to list the most important  things that you can do when you visit Belfast.
1.      Go sightseeing the typical Christian and Protestant neighborhoods. These neighborhoods are separated by a gram wall, and the facades of the houses represent an important part of the History of Belfast.

2.      After that, you can visit the Titanic Museum. As you know,
The Titanic was the largest passenger ship built at that time, but unfortunately sank on its first voyage. And a curious fact is that the Titanic was built in Belfast, for that reason there is a museum dedicated to this important ship.
The entrance to this Museum  is 7.25£ for kids  and 17.5£ for adults.

3.      Another thing that you can see, is the Cityhall of Belfast, that is one of the most well know buildings of the city. And the Town Hall is so close to the important shops in the center. It´s so important to say that the entrance is free!

4.      In the evening, you can visit the important Queens University. As long as the evening passed, the building looks like so beautiful with the lights.

5.      Finally, you can finish your day buying typical food in St. George Market.
This is one of the best markets in United Kingdom, and I recommend that you try the Cookstown Pork (7£).

Furthermore, if you want to have a good experience in Belfast, you can eat in restaurants where you can try typical food from there.
 We are going to show you some restaurants where you can have a good culinary expereince.
For having a breakfast: I recommend you to go to “Maggie Mays”, where you can eat a lovely Cafe Latte for only 2£ and Banoffee pie with vanilla ice cream that cost 5£.


For example, you can have lunch in “Acton and Sons”. This restaurant  is located on the bustling Brunswick Street in the ever expanding Linen Quarter. And they offer fresh fish sit alongside local cuts of beef and classic dishes. And all the dishes cost 10£.

For  having dinner you can go to the “Brights Restaurant”, where you can try the typical fish and chips. You can try it for only 5£.

Star II

Hello everyone! I´m Laura and this week I have been the star with Nerea.
Our task consisted on present several advantages and disadvantages about the types of leadership style.

So , we decided to do a power point for show it in class.

Leadership style ,is the manner or the way that the leader provide direction , implementing plans and motivate people.
Therefore, you can find several types of leadership style ,like

  1. Authoritarian:is where the leader wants to keep the authoritarian power , a encourage the rules
  2. Democratic, the leader share all the decision with the group
  3. Paternalistic ,is characterized by a leader who takes care of the subordinates
  4. Trasnformational , where the leaders create a goos environmetn
  5. Transactional, where people are motivated by reward and punishments
  6. Laisez-faire, in that case the subordinates have complete freedom to make decisions.

The bassic difference between all these types o leadership is that the leader is seen in a different way , and the leader behave in a different way with the subordinates.
For example ,in the partenalistic leadership style , th leader takes care of their subordiantes
instead of ,the authoritarian leader,where the leader doesn´t have relationship with the subordinates

So, I expect that you understand very weel what it means leadership style , but if you want you can see videos in (``Youtube``) where there are many presentations documenting that .
I advise to see this video, is too interesting.Is about the leadership styles ,and the personalities.

See you soon!

TRANSLATOR role by Amelia Avilés

I’m Amelia and this week I have been the translator of my group.

This week we had to talk about the different types of leadership, focusing on their advantages and disadvantages so here you have the explanation of five of the types of leadership.

1. Laissez- faire: A laissez-faire leader lacks direct supervision of employees and fails to provide regular feedback to those under his supervision. Highly experienced and trained employees requiring little supervision fall under the laissez-faire leadership style. However, not all employees possess those characteristics. This leadership style hinders the production of employees needing supervision. The laissez-faire style produces no leadership or supervision efforts from managers, which can lead to poor production, lack of control and increasing costs.

2. Autocratic: The autocratic leadership style allows managers to make decisions alone without the input of others. Managers possess total authority and impose their will on employees. No one challenges the decisions of autocratic leaders. This leadership style benefits employees who require close supervision. Creative employees who thrive in group functions detest this leadership style.

3. Participative: Often called the democratic leadership style, participative leadership values the input of team members and peers, but the responsibility of making the final decision rests with the participative leader. Participative leadership boosts employee morale because employees make contributions to the decision-making process. It causes them to feel as if their opinions matter. When a company needs to make changes within the organization, the participative leadership style helps employees accept changes easily because they play a role in the process. This style meets challenges when companies need to make a decision in a short period.  

4. Transactional: Managers using the transactional leadership style receive certain tasks to perform and provide rewards or punishments to team members based on performance results. Managers and team members set predetermined goals together, and employees agree to follow the direction and leadership of the manager to accomplish those goals. The manager possesses power to review results and train or correct employees when team members fail to meet goals. Employees receive rewards, such as bonuses, when they accomplish goals.

5. Transformational: The transformational leadership style depends on high levels of communication from management to meet goals. Leaders motivate employees and enhance productivity and efficiency through communication and high visibility. This style of leadership requires the involvement of management to meet goals. Leaders focus on the big picture within an organization and delegate smaller tasks to the team to accomplish goals.

These concepts are from Johnson R. 5 Different Types of Leadership Styles, from

I think that these concepts are very good and complete so I hope you have understood them easily.
