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.

  3. Last night I saw the film "Invictus" in honor of Nelson Mandela. I didn't know who he was or why he was so important, he did disappear apartheid in his country. He also received the Nobel Peace Prize. I think it isn't just people had thrown him in jail for 27 years for their thinking. He is a person who has already gone down in history and will always remember. With the movie yesterday I learned a lot.
    We are all equal. Thanks Mandela.

  9. Nelson Rolihalaha Mandela(18 July 1918-5 December 2013) was a south Afircan anti-apartheid revolutionary politician,and philanthropist who served as President of south Africa from 1994 to 1999.He was the first black south African to hold the office,and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election.He served as Pesident of the African National Congress from 1991 to 1997.
    In 1962 he was arrested,convicted of conspiracy to overthrow the state and sentenced to life imprisonment.Mandela was over 27 years in prision.An internatonal campaign lobbied for his release.Finalment,he was released in 1990.
    Mandela was a private person who often concealed his emotions and confided in very few people.Privately,he lived an austere life,refusing to drink alcohol or smoke,and even as president made his own bed,although was also renowed for his mischevous sense of humor.Mandela was married three times,fathered six children had 17 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren.
    These days,heads of state from around the world visit South Africa in order to give the last goodbye to Mandela.Personally,I think that we have loss a big person.

  18. NELSON MANDELA

    Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born on 18th July 1918, in Mvezo, Cape Town (South Africa).
    He has died recently, last 5th December 2013, at the age of 95, in Gauteng.

    He was a South African politican and lawyer. He was a prisoner over 27 years complying life sentence. Afterwards he was released. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and he was president of his country.

    He was one of thirteen children that his father Henry Gadla Mphakanyiswa had and married 3 times (he had 6 children).

    Mandela became a lengendary figure who represented the lack of freedom of all South Africans black men.

    The quote I like is:
    "Education is the most powerful weapon with you can use to change the world."

  19. I am going to talk about a film call Invictus. Invictus is a film produced in 2009 and it is a biographical sports drama film directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon. The story is based on the John Carlin book Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation about the events in South Africa before and during the 1995 Rugby World Cup, which was hosted in that country following the dismantling of apartheid. Freeman and Damon play, respectively, South African President Nelson Mandela and François Pienaar, the captain of the South Africa rugby union team, the Springboks.

    In my opinion this film is fantastic, the film shows how a president can make rugby becomes a way of bring together black and white people. In my opinion Morgan Freeman played Nelson Mandela phenomenally. In general all the actors do it very well in the film.

    I think that Nelson Mandel was the best president in our world, he was cultivate and honest. The pity is that was too long in jail, but that was also good, because he became cultivate and intelligent and he had a lot of time to meditate.

  20. Nelson Madela was born 18th July 1918 and he died recently, 5th December 2013. I am young so, I don't know him when he was younger, but I´ve heard a lot of him. I know that he was a revolutionary who only wanted that white and black people live together without fences. He defended it all his life, for that reason he was jailed for 27 years.

    However, he also did a lot of things in sport, when he was the President of South Africa. He loved football and rugby. He won, in rugby, the World Cup with the Springboks. He talked with the captain François Pinaar and he did a lot for the team, because black people didn't like the team and it had been really bad.

    Nowadays South Africans people are really grateful to Mandela. He did a lot for them. But they black people are still poor an they are in very bad conditions. We have to continue.
