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.

  1. This video is fine for me. It is original and interesting. We can see as are making these coffes `suspended coffees´. But this coffee bar isn't going very well. Even one of the men didn't want to pay for a caffe.

  2. This video is fine for me. It is original and intertesting. We can see how they make coffee and what "suspended coffees" mean. "Suspended coffees" are "Cafes pendientes". When you pay, you can pay 3 coffees, and when you get someone who hasn't money but want to have a coffee, it can be taken by someone else before I had paid.

  4. A suspended coffee is a coffee that people who have got enough money buy for those who can't afford it. You pay the coffee, and the half of what you've payed, it's to pay for the coffee os those people who can't afford to buy one. Then, all the people can drink coffee although they can't buy it. Suspended coffee has his origin in Naples, Italy, many years ago like a tradition.

  5. I don't agree drink much cofee because the coffee have a lot of caffeine, but i agree the descoifeneid coffee or drinks of herbal similar to the coffee. A lot of people loves coffee because it gives them energy but I prefer energy drinks like Monster or Burn.
    When i was a child i don't like coffee but now a like it but not much. My parents loves coffee and they drink it all the mornings before go working.
    Other people drink the coffe in a Cafe or a restaurant with ''Churros'' or ''Croisants''. I love cafe with ''Churros'' or hot chocolat with ''Churros'' too it's my favourite brakfast :3.

  6. Idon´t drink coffee because i prefer Fanta or Casera
    if i had to choose between coffee or decaffeinated pick the decaffeinated no doubt because that night couldn´t sleep

    Many people have the habit of drinking coffe to wake up to be more prepared to go to work

    Many people go to the restaurant when the cafe will take churros or milk but i prefer coffee with milk

  7. Really, we only think that the only psicoactive drugs are marijuana, cocaine, "and little more"... but they're in everywhere! But we have to admit that they're not very bad for example caffeine, antidepressants, painkillers, etc. and some of them are used in medicine.

    Perhaps, coffee is one of the most bought drinks in the world. People take it for breakfast, when they get out with friends, to talk with someone... the most usual is take a coffee as a dessert. In fact, coffee has become an icon in our society.

    Some people don't know that if you abuse so much anything you can fall ill. In this case, cafeine causes nervousness and stomach pain. In the long run your body dehydrate sooner. I must say that a lot of people are uncapable of wake up and don't take a coffee: the routine creates dependence.

    If we don't abuse of coffe we will enjoy one delight that has a lot of kind and tastes and we can join it with a good conversation or with a rentoy with friends.

  8. Yes, I think. The people consume too much caffeine in many drinks (coffee, tea, energy drinks…). A suspended coffee is one or more coffee that the people with money buy to poor people, that they don´t have any money for buy it. It´s origins to Naples. I think that it´s a great idea, this it called solidarity, and this idea to be expand to other parts of the world.
    Although, I never prepare an Iris Coffee, I know that it prepares with Irish Whisky, three clods of sugar, coffee and two centimeters of cream. Yes of course, I don´t ever tried it, as you say I´m still too young!

  9. I think people drink too much coffee. I think people drink it because they have to be awake to work. A suspended coffee is a coffee that you buy someone so that when a poor person comes to drink it. I don't drink coffee because it is bad for the nerves and it has a lot of caffeine that later won't let you sleep well. There are a lot of caffeine in Coca-Cola, in the chocolate ... etc that are addictive.

  10. Today people use caffeine to escape the dream seems to me that they are removing years of life because studies show that caffeine is a drug there that people engage in it and can not start the day without their coffee or Coke .
    I personally do not like at all the coke and many people know that caffeine is an even more nicotine bad I think it should make the world aware of this drug.
