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.

All work and no play makes Jack/Jill a dull boy/girl!!!


In which famous film have you seen this proverb? What does it mean?


Nowadays, students have to go to school in the afternoon and then in the afternoon they may have to go to private classes, to the music school or official language school in Motril, do some sport, do loads of homework, study... and yes, they also have to chat with their friends, keep their social networks updated and even slepp. This is just a restless life, but what can we do?

Listening exercise to do: Is modern life making us tired?

Apart from the proverb, my piece of advice would be to make the most of any experience or activity you have to do, so for example if you are in class, you have to be 100% attentive to all what teachers say and do as much as you can.

  1. That proverb means that children must play apart from working or studying. I have read that children now have a lot of activities: going to school, sports, classes in the afternoon, learning new languages,etc.. we are always doing something, we don´t have time to relax and go out with our friends.
    I think that parents and teachers must know that we have a lot of things to do in the mornings and in the afternoons, they must think before giving us more work to do. We are living in a very competitive society, and people must know about everything, and that make us stressed. We can´t know how to play an instrument, playing a sport, studying a lot,...that's impossible.
    I think that children must be children, we have to have time to relax, play, and do what we want.
