BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  10. It's a beauty song, which teaches that there isn`t barrier stronger than we put us, and if we want we can get anything, we just have to fight for it.

  11. 1º I really like this song. When I was a child, I enjoyed listening to it, but I didn't know the title of the song. A few years ago, I found it, and now, it's one of my favourite songs and I can repeat it a thousand times. I think the lyrics have a lot of points of view: a relationship, a friendship... anyway, the song is a very good example of overcoming.

  13. I think this song is very romantic but in my opinion I would prefer that the person instead of many miles away could be with me but as the song says:Ain't no mountain high Ain't no valley low Ain't no river wide enough,therefore nothing is impossible so here we get passed all things (we can ...yes) jajaja

    Charles Dickens wrote the novel 'Hard Times' in 1854. This novel expresses the extremity to which the children where under valued, especially women who were abused and used to attend to men's needs.

  14. Wonderful! This is an example of a fantastic song, sung by two great singers in black music. Produces a feeling of wellbeing and a feeling quite emotional, you can help pass hard times and feel what the heart tells you when in love. It is a beautiful song that would not stop listening to it over and over again.

    Dickens is a great novelist. He wrote his novel`Hard Times´when he was forty-two years old


    PS: To anyone who likes the music you hear this song.

  20. 1. It is a romantic song and funny, but it can mean many things, but the main idea is love and support you show the people who love you no matter how far you are. In a way it teaches you to fight far what you want. Also this is a well known song that appears in several films like "Stepmon" and "Remember the Titans".

  21. This song is very famous and i love it. I think Marvin Gaye has been very important for the music of the moment and in my opinion he is one of the best soul singer ever. You should listen to " lets get it on" or "what`s going on" these are one of my favourites. You have to listen to them! here i put the link for you:

  22. When I read the lyrics of Ain't no Mountain High Enough’s, I felt very good but sad too. Actually, I didn't interpret this song like a romantic experience if not like a very important aspect in our life, good friends. Second Bachelors students will finish this year the career in this high school, that’s why it’s important to make good friends here because in the future we will be able to spend funny times with them.

  23. 1º Like Elisa, I think this song is about the friendship. No matter the difficulties that the life can present, you have to overcome them. You musn't give up, you have to fight. In English is the same, we have to work hard.

    The song it's really beautiful. I really love it! It's beacause I think their voices are really nice. They song really good and I like the music too.

I didn't know the title, so thank you very much Albert!

  30. Hard times was written by Charles Dickens in 1854. I don´t have read it yet but It looks a good book for the summer. But, before summer, I must think in all the exams that I have to face. In my opinion it’s very important to be confident. If you believe in yourself you will reach whatever you want. However sometimes, you need something more to follow your own way, a song, a boy, a girl or maybe, a smile while someone say like a Bob Marley’s song “cause every little thing is gonna be alright” So when teachers want us to pass our exams I’ d say that the best way for it would be not stress us. “Yes, we can” like said Obama is the best way to face these “Hard Times”.

  31. In my opinion, “Ain't no mountain high enough” is one of those songs that are always present and we will never forget it. if you listen to it when you're stressed, the stress disappears and and you become the happiest person in the world. The lyrics of the song is about a beautiful love story between two lovers who are miles apart.

  32. This song is one of those songs that you hear often but you don´t know where. It is the first time that I see the title and the videoclip of this song but I have heard this song thousands of times.
    I think that this song is a cheerful song and its lyrics is very good but I need to listen in these days motivating songs and I don´t think that this song is motivating and I prefer to listen rocky balboa´s soundtrack.

  36. This song is one of the many songs that inspire joy everywhere they can get on the moral one of those days where you're wrong.
    The backing track is very enjoyable using it produces in the person who hears a momentary feeling of happiness, until the song ends.
    This is one of many American songs of the eighties and nineties that marked an era, today there are not many groups that can make songs as good, but we can always look back and listen to these songs.

  37. The songs I had before are now better than at that time the songs relayed feelings of happiness to hear now don't like the effects that place. This is a typical song that always reminds sad times and can serve to remove the bad day you wear.

  48. I think the song its very old and still good, and the lyrics have a meaning and its how important they are to each other.
    Their lives which were already full of such hardship were cut so tragically short. Still its nice to see here how happy they made each other feel even just for short time.
