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.

Listening exercise to do:     AIR POLLUTION IN CHINA

  1. Air pollution is normal in big cities because there are industries that produce a lot of smoke. However this problem is very important in the larger cities of China, where most factories in other countries and do not control the smoke there. I'm surprised to see on TV and on the internet as people have to wear masks, they can not leave their homes and can not see a few feet away. The smoke is harmful to all living things, to the ozone layer and the planet.

  2. Pollution is a serious problem in many parts of the world, especially in cities where many people live and there are many cars, which pollute the air. The people need wear face masks on days when pollution levels are high, they can not have a normal life. China is heavily contaminated and will not be easy to clean, it will take years or even decades to reduce the pollution.
    I do not think China will become a country without pollution, it is too big and crowded country.
    Moreover, humans, do not worry about our future on earth.
    We cause fire, pollute the environment, kill animals, and we do not care.
    In many years, we can not live on earth and die, our fault.

  3. China can be a very civilized country but also is very contaminated and that's a problem. There is a very serious problem as they must carry face masks because there are very polluted areas, there and everywhere. The earth has its limits and we're making. We must work with the environment, to make our world better.

  4. China is a country that is badly polluted, because it is a big city where there are industries that produce smoke. This is a very big problem because people can not get to see the nature, and if they come out has to be with masks for pollution that exist. It must prevent that have so many industries to help not to contaminate both and create a world without pollution.

  5. Air pollution is the introduction of particulates, biological materials, or other harmful materials into the Earth's atmosphere, possibly causing disease, death to humans, damage to other living organisms such as food crops, or the natural or built environment.
    Pollution is one aspect of the broader topic of environmental issues in China. Various forms of pollution have increased as China has industrialized, which has caused widespread environmental and health problems. Lung cancer and cardiovascular disease were increasing because of factory and vehicle air pollution and tobacco smoking.
    People need to go outside with masks is very dangerous because all the smoke in the environment. It's disgusting how people should be covered when to go outside that can get sick.
    In my opinion the contamination can be reduced if we all work together, for example, use public tranport, use bike, recycle.

    1. Smog is a mixture of smoke, gases, and chemicals, especially in cities, which makes the atmosphere difficult to breathe and harmful for health.
      At the moment, in China there are big problems with smog, like in other countries as London, Los Angeles and Tokyo. The problem is that China has too much pollution in its air. The Government thinks that it may be produced by the burning of the coal, which is the cheapest but must polluting fuel.
      A citizen in Beijing says that the pollution in Beijin is so dangerous for the health of her daughters, (who have to wear face mask when the pollution is very high) that she is thinking about move to the southern part of China, which has better air. Other measures have been taken in schools, in one of them its director bought a giant inflatable dome which filters the air. Also, there is another school that has sealed off part of its playground.
      The government has closed down some power stations within the city that burn coal to burning cleaner gas and push for renewable energy including hydroelectric, wind and solar is designed, in part, to help replace power generation by coal.
      All in all, China's pollution will take some years or decades to reduce it and live in a better way.

  8. Pollution is presence in the air of substances or energy that involves damage, risk or serious nuisance to people.
    The main mechanisms of pollution are industrial processes (combustion), both cars and central heating, producing carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen and sulfur.
    They also emit gases called chlorine or hydrocarbons.

  9. China is the most advanced country in the world, but also the country with the highest pollution in the air. So people wear face masks. It is a big problem because it is bad for the lungs and for the body. The air pollution is because in 1945 dropped an atomic bomb called The Little Boy that pollute much of Japan and China by air. The air pollution in tbe air is a very big problem because shortens life. It is also because there are many people, and if every families has got two cars in the end there are thousands and thousands of cars. But they can reduce it using the public transport and pollute less. In the next ten years will be more contamited and more ugly than now. We can reduce the air pollution! Go 4 it!

  10. China is a country very affected by pollution, although is the most advanced country in the world. The pollution is produced by nuclear plants that spew many pollutant gases into the atmosphere and also by gases spelled by vehicles.

    The capital Beijing is among urban areas where pollution routinely exceeds safety limit. The usual serious pollution in China, causing the premature death of thousands of people in the country has worsened each year and the number of cases of lung cancer in the capital, has another derivative with potential catastrophic consequences for food and agriculture.

    I think that the people of China should use more public transport and nuclear plants do not expel many gases.

  11. Pollution is a serious problem for the world, specially in cities and towns where a lot of people live. People use their cars too often and it is bad for the enviorement. In some countries such as Belgium or Holland, people are aware of this problem and they use bikes or public transport. We should go that in Spain!

  12. China is a very advanced country, but during the passage of time undergone a series of changes that have affected the environment of this country. It is the place with the highest air pollution in the world. Because of this pollution many people in this country use masks to breathe air clean enough to not get sick, and what this can affect our lungs. This is due to a bomb called 'The Little Boy', besides that most people use cars to move.
