O objetivo dessas duas postagens é mais a prática do inglês em seu contexto real. Na primeira, temos a Noticia sobre a atriz Jennifer Aniston, a eterna Rachel Green do seriado FRIENDS. Aqui ela é eleita a mulher mais sexy do mundo. 

Na segunda postagem, o ator, Chalie Sheen, ex-TWO AND A HALF MEN, tuita o número do seu telefone celular para Justin Bieber. O único problema é que o ator não sabia que não estava mandando uma mensagem particular (privada). Resultado: 18.000 mensagens de texto dos seus fãs. Textos indicados para níveis intermediários. 

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston Named 'Sexiest Woman Of All Time'
It's no secret that Jennifer Aniston is sexy, but according to a new poll, she's the sexiest woman of all time.

Men's Health took a poll ranking 100 of the hottest women in history -- a tough job, we're sure -- and Aniston came in at No. 1 spot. However, the "Horrible Bosses" actress can think of two other women she thinks are the sexiest.

"It's a tie between Bridgette Bardot and Gloria Steinem," she told Men's Health. "But if I had to choose one, I'd say Gloria because, well, she's the full package. That's sexy."

Other stars landing near the top of the Men's Health list include Raquel Welch, Marilyn Monroe, Britney Spears and Madonna.

Do you agree with Jennifer Aniston being named the "Sexiest Woman of All Time"?

Charlie Sheen 

Charlie Sheen Tweets Personal Phone Number Intended for Justin Bieber

What do Anthony Weiner and Charlie Sheen have in common? They could both use a Twitter tutorial on the difference between an "Update" and a "Direct Message."

In attempt to direct message Justin Bieber with his phone number (why?), Sheen accidentally tweeted his digits for all of his 5.5 million followers, who happend to be perusing the social networking site, to see. Realizing his mistake, Sheen promptly removed the tweet from his profile -- but not before receiving roughly 1,800 text messages, according to the UK's Daily Mail.
"310-954-7277 Call me bro. C," Sheen accidentally tweeted.

Although the mishap will most likely force Sheen to change the number on his Tiger Blood calling card, that doesn't mean the actor, who was dining in Las Vegas when he suddenly became the most popular guy in Hollywood, didn't have a little fun with his dial-happy fans.

"Charlie saw the funny side and answered the phone a few times, saying things like 'Ray's Pizza' and 'Winning,'" a source told the Daily Mail.

Charlie Sheen the pizza guy? That could be a profession worth pursuing.
