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. I believe that Valentine's Day is very nice and beautiful things that couples are given and show your true love. San Valentin I'm not having gift because I have no girlfriend. Although I also think it is a commercial holiday because people buy more things although they are more expensive.

  2. Saint Valentine's Day, also known as Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is a holiday observed on February 14 each year. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it is not a holiday in most of them.

    The opinions of this day are different. Many people think that is a love day and the love is in the air. However, many other people think that is a horrible day and hate it for many reasons. I think it is a common day, but if you have boyfriend or girlfriend you will think is the most beautiful day of the year.

    This song, “Sad Song”, is a song sung by We the king, who is an American rock band from Bradenton, Florida. I’ve never listened it and now, before listening it and reading its lyrics, I must to say, although is a sad song, it is very beautiful. I like it so much and I have already saved it in my mobile phone!

    In my opinion this song isn´t appropriate for St Valentine's Day because is sad. I think the best song for this day is “All of me”, which is a beautiful song sung by John Legend, who is an American singer-songwriter and actor. This is the link for the song in YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mk7-GRWq7wA. Another song that I like for this day is "Stay with me" by Sam Smith (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pB-5XG-DbAA)

  3. The Saint Valentin's Day it celebrate on 14st February in many countries of the world.

    For me, this day is other with that the industries want win some money, but without forgetting the romantic side.

    For enough people this day is normal, but if you have girlfriend o boyfriend, your idea is different. You think that is the most beautiful day of the year.

    If you go to a supermarket in this date you can find out a lot of things about love. From teddies to a lot of diferent brand of chocolates and too many things associated.

    The song is good, but for my is a few sad, as the name says. The song is about a couple that have separated, and they are very sad. All the people have had a separation in lives, but for that life isn't ending. This is the negative side of the love, when you are separated the person who you love, but I think that if is the correct person, the love hasn't end. And in the positive side of love there are too many things. You love to that person and you give all for it. The love is very beautiful!

    Here a romantic good song, which is of Enrique Iglesias.This is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=tLcfAnN2QgY Another good song is "Sólo tú" of Carlos Rivera, that is a Mexican singer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=YacOGXVfJsQ

  6. San Valentine's Day is celebrated on 14th February. On this day all the couples are often together, and stores often have loving bears, mugs things to day like this.

    I have really liked this song. It has got a nice tune and romantic lyrics. But what I have enjoyed the most is that I could read the words at the same time that I was listening to the song.
    That is great to learn vocabulary and pronunciation.
    Thank you!

  7. Valentine's Day is celebrated once a year, on February 14.
    It is not a day that I particularly like,
    but it is nice to have a special day to celebrate love of a couple,
    friendship, ...
    On this day the boy would often make a
    gift to the girl and the girl the boy as a token of affection.
    The boy can give her a bouquet of flowers,
    a teddy bear,chocolates or spend a nice song.
    This day is nice to spend with your girl or boy and
    friends that you like so much.

  8. Valentine's Day is celebrated all around the world on February 14, however, not everyone knows why this day is celebrated. The truth is that this day is older than most people think.

    The story says that in 270 AD Rome had to fight in many wars, however, the men didn’t want to join the army. The emperor Claudius II believed that this happened because they didn’t want to leave alone their wives or their girlfriends, and that’s why he banned all marriages. However, a man named Valentine disobeyed him and married people secretly. Unluckly, the emperor's soldiers caught him on 14th February and sentenced him to death. Before dying, the soldiers let him write a note to his beloved in which he said "from your Valentine".

    There are different opinions on this day. First, many think that this day is mainly organized by the shops, to earn money and that love should not be shown one day but every day of the year. Moreover, there are others who think that this day is perfect for romantic things and for showing people that they love them.

    In my opinion, this day is very nice and I support it because, despite it’s true that you have to prove your love every day of the year, remembering it with a flower, a bear, a song or a film is always good and is very romantic. Furthermore, in the current period of crisis, buying these objects helps the shops and the economy. I dislike people who criticize this day, because if you don’t like and you're not in favor, don’t celebrate it, it’s easy.

    Finally, I would choose this song by Ellie Goulding for Valentine’s Day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJtDXIazrMo

  9. Saint Valentine's Day is celebrated on 14th February every year. On this day couples join and they give each other chocolates, pasty , chocolate , flowers...
    The boy is usually the one that gives thought the girl also or it does. Many people think that it is the most romantic day , but I think if you have a boyfriend or a girlfriend every day must be a romantic momento, not only one day a year.

    This is my song romantic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdEnjQk6Dno Ed sheeran - Photograph

  10. Saint Valentine's Day is celebrated on 14th February. It's a romantic date! All shops are full of chocolates, teddies, etc,so industries sell more products on these days.

    If you have a girlfriend or a boyfriend, this day is the best of the year. Usually, people buy a red rose or a Carnation for her/his love. Love is amazing! I reckon that all the world should fall in love at least once in their lives. But love has positive and negative sides. On the one hand, you are happier, you have a person who helps and loves you .. But, on the other hand, if you break up with your love you'll want to die, you'll feel unhappy. Also love can promote jeaulousy.

    I've just listened to the song and it's very sad. It tells the story of a man and a woman who have just broken and they feel miserable. The song is really good, but a bit sad, as the name says.

  17. The February 14 is celebrated Saint Valentine’s day, it’s a traditional celebration of Anglo-Saxon countries, it has been appearing in other countries from the twentieth century, also known as the "lovers’ day".
    For this special day in every store you can find all kinds of things of love, gifts are often made by couples are; chocolates, flowers, stuffed animals, rings ... all things related to love.
    For me it is a special day in which couples can show their love doing things you normally do not or cannot do. I also think it is not necessary to spend money on buying gifts, it can be enough to spend some time doing some object by yourself, or simply preparing a special day with a romantic dinner, for example. People think that Saint Valentine’s Day is for buying the very best gift, it has become very consumer day.
    I think it's a beautiful day, but you don’t need to spend a lot of money on the best gift, you just have to put a little work and a lot of love to surprise your partner. Although currently I have no boyfriend, is a day that I really like, and I like to celebrate.

  19. Valentine's Day is celebrated on 14th February. It is a traditional celebration in which lovers, partners and married couples express their love for each other. The gift of roses is common between couples, friends and family, and the colour of the roses determines the message expressed. For example, the red rose symbolizes love, white represents peace and yellow represents friendship. For me the Valentine's Day is a magic day because everyone is with your partner enjoying a great day.

  20. Each 14 February in honor of Terni San Valentin who is one of the three holy Roman martyrs, a day on which lovers express their love and affection to each other. But I think it has disadvantages.

    First, love should be expressed every day, for example through gifts or details. By doing this, your girlfriend see that you matter and she will love more.

    Second, for those who don't have girlfriend is a very sad day. Besides this, social networks many people share their love and gifts, while others have nothing.

    In conclusion, I think Valentine's Day should be celebrated more discreetly or not celebrate it because who are alone can feel some envy.

    They give normaly roses but lately there are presents as giants teedys , photos of them and a nigh crazy in hotel ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). If you have partner you can pass the day with him and have a romatic day.But if you don't have a parther you pass a boring day and you be sad looking at others with partner .

    I definitely reckon that San Valentine is good for persons with partner , but bad for persons without partner .

  23. St Valentine´s day is celebrated the 14th February around the whole world. It is a day when you can receive letters or presents form your boyfriend or girlfriend. It is a spaecial day for the couples because they celebrate that they are in love. Today, a lot of people buy presents for their friends to celebrate that day too.
    It can be an invention of the shops to sell more flowers, sweets and other things. In my high school, you can send other people flowers, letters, bears, pie,etc... I think that it is a good day to tell the people what ypu love them.
