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.

  2. In my opinion it's spectacular the world that surrounds Zara. I really love its clothes because I think they are modern but at the same time they are smart. Amancio Ortega had a very god idea, and gradually he has achieved the greatest fortune of Spain, 2nd in Europe and 5th in the world according to Forbes magazine(2012), with 37,500 million dollars!
    So I think we should support Spanish companies that make the name of our country is known in all the world.
    Also I think it's interesting there isn't any advertising because it has achieved fame with the quality and clients confidence.

  6. I think that it´s incredible as a company like this so we can be caught. They control all the trade and indirectly make us buy their clothes. Their clothes, I think are good, but nowdays the clothes in all shops are the same or very similar, in my opinion is the worst of fashion, because everybody wear the same clothes. But the worst of these it´s that until the clothes is the same there are shop that are so expensive than other, and people buy them until at the following shop you can found it cheaper.
    Text like these I think are easy to comment in a Selectivity exam.

  8. The main Spanish pride is not the fashion, but Amancio Ortega has taken advantage of this, he has created an enormous company, being an example of how a retailer can become billionaire... But he isn´t the only one: Carlos Sim was the son of a Lebanese immigrant, a Mexican born in January 1940, he began to win their first coins at age 10 when bought and resold candy and baseball cards from his uncles and cousins. Now he is the richest man in the world and now he is the boss of the Mexican company Telmex.

  10. I agree with most of my classmates. I think Amancio Ortega has won so much money that he has achieved being the second richest man in Europe and fifth one in the world. He has created one of the most well known company of fashion in a different way than the others one: he used his effort and patience, such us not allow it to be advertised everywhere. It designs, produces and distributes itself. Besides its clothes are trendy, comfortable and smart, and it has a greta value of money.

  11. I think that Amancio Ortega, the creator of this great and successful company, is a very intelligent man who knows the secret to success in business. He had the great idea of control every part of the business, design, production, distribution. Thanks to this idea Amancio is one of the richest men in the world. How intelligent he was!. In my opinion, Zara is one of the best shops in the world, in fact, most of the clothes that I use are from this shop. Zara's clothes are very beautiful and of all types, smart, casual, sporty, trendy. It is a fantastic shop where almost everyone buys.

    1. Zara is one of the most famous brands of clothing Spanish can be found on almost every continent. Zara was founded in 1975 by Amancio Ortega, a modest Galician entrepreneur who decided to expand his small factory in Arteixo opening a store in La Coruña.Zara is the most profitable business throughout Europe, but Amancio Ortega, owner of Zara, not content enough with it. Zara is the flagship of Inditex. Inditex is a fashion business group in which, in addition to Zara , companies like Zara Kids, Pull & Bear, Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Stradivarius, Oysho, Zara Home and Uterqüe.To me, Amancio is a very intelligent man who knows how to run a business, because everyone can get what they want and at any time. He is one of the richest people in the world and all because he has been someone creative and risked to do things that not everyone would dare to do

      I don't like Zara clothes , because my style is different to that sold there, although there are very nice clothes, and at a very good price. However , I think the range should be more varied for all the likes teenagers have nowadays. Because they have only Zara and Zara Kids, and clothing that is there as a teenager is not fixed, unless you have a very special style. Anyway, although I don't like this brand of clothes, I admire Amancio to build an empire of something so small and be recognized worldwide.
