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. Gareth Bale was born on 16th July 1989 in Cardiff. He is a footballer and plays for Real Madrid. He was considered one of the biggest talents in the Premier League last year and in the world today.
    So far this season he has scored 9 goals, has played 16 games (1103 minutes), has received 2 yellow cards (no red cards) and has given 9 assists.
    I think he is very good player and is very talented in giving passes to his other fellow players.

  11. Gareth Bale was born on July 16, 1989 in Cardiff.
    He is known for being one of the best signings of Real Madrid, since he is a tall, fast player, with a very good vision of the game, etc.
    He is still in this club although he is not loved by the fans, since he always receives beeps in the field.

    This player has won many titles with Real Madrid such as the Champions Leage, La Liga, even gave the king's cup to Real Madrid in 2014 scoring a goal in the last minutes.

    For me he is one of the best soccer players without any doubt, I do not understand why Madrid wastes it, I should give him more minutes of play

  12. it is a good idea learn a new lenguaje how can be english? why? which are the reason why you should learning english or other tongue? what think you about learning enlish or other langues?

    I think that is very important learn to other langues, I think this because if you know other langue for example english the lengue more speak you have more posibilities to find a work in your country and also in other different country where aren't live you, and this can help you a lot in your future, if you learning english also is more easy travel around the world because this langue is universal so you can understand the culture of the country for example, you can meet with english people if you understand this tongue

    In conclusiion i think that learning a new langues have very advantages and few disadvantages, i think that it is very important becouse it help in your life .
