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. Today the money is very important to buy all the things we need or want.
    First, money is necessary to live , because we buy food, clothes, books ... . Young people like me , we don´t use credit cards and still pay with coins or bills , but in the near future my parents makes me a credit card because it´s very easy to use and simple and can´t steal me.
    Moreover , money isn´t always happines, because there are people who have much money and don´t know what to do with it and aren´t happy and his family .
    I think that money is important for everyone , but not everyone knows how to enjoy .

  2. I still carry cash to go shopping. The main reason for this it’s that I don’t have neither a credit card for me, nor a bankcard, the second reason is that I don’t trust to pay online with a credit card.
    In the listening I have listened different ways to pay, for example bankcard, tap-and-go card and I have listened words related with money, for example wallet. There are other ways to pay, as pay with mobile phones.

    I know Mark Zuckerberg is an American businessman who created the red social Facebook which is used for millions of persons around the world. I saw on TV that Mark Zuckerberg was in Barcelona in the Mobile World Congress which is a congress celebrated every year in Barcelona about mobile technologies. I have read in a sport newspaper that his last day in Barcelona, Mark went out to dinner with Piqué, the football player of Barcelona.

  3. Nowadays, money is all in life, although we usually say health is the main, it isn't really true. All we and all depend on money.

    When I go shopping, I carry cash because I can't carry a credit card because of I'm not 18 years old. Most people carry their credit card, and I reckon it's more comfortable than carry cash. On the contrary, it leaves people who don't have one and they have to carry cash when they go shopping.

    Now, it is developing the way of pay with our own mobile phone. I would try to pay with mine, it has to be exciting. In my opinion, it is more comfortable than paying with cash, even, than paying with a credit card.
    This reminds me of the advertisement where an elderly man who is on a scooter pay a purchase with his mobile.

    Mark Zuckerberg is the co-founder and CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of the networking website Facebook. He is also one of the world's youngest billionaires. He has such an enormous quantity of money! He has $47.1 billions.

  4. The money is very important for our life. I pay in cash when I go to shopping. For the childrens is the only payment. Many adults pay with card because in my opinion it is more comfortable and and so they do not have to carry cash.

    I think that a rich have a problems, because with so much money they have all, and there will come a time when they are tired of so much money.

  5. It is a well-known fact that nowadays money is essential. For this reason, there are many ways to pay at restaurant or shops.

    In the past, humans used barter for buying things. However, nowadays we have developed other ways, like cash or credit card, but we are still improving the ways to pay, such as paying with our mobiles phones. This new technology has been proved only in some restaurants and shops in Paris and it is going well.

    The most common way to pay at Spain is by cash, but in my opinion it isn’t the most useful. In my point of view, paying by card is safer and easier, because if someone steals you your handbag or your wallet, they won’t obtain anything unless they have the password, but in that case you can deactivate your credit card. It is also clear that paying by cash or credit card are the most common ways in the world, but for example in France, the check is very use.

    All in all, I think we should use more the credit card, because it weighs nothing and it is safer. I hope one day we could pay with our mobiles phones, because it will make our lives easier.

  6. In these time money we are doing more miserable every day. Money doesn´t give hapiness. Many things can not be bought with money such as health or love. You can only buy material things with the most advanced methods of payment such as the app telephone or the credit card, but in the end really a few coins of euros you have to live.


    I know Mark Zuckerberg is one of the richest men in the world, his fortune is thanks to the social network called Facebook.

  7. In this day and age credit cards are all the rage. You can purchase literally anything you want online by using a credit card. Also most shops take credit cards these days.

    There are many pros and cons to owning one. An advantage of owning one is that instead of carrying a load of cash on you, all you have to carry is one single card. This makes it harder for thiefs to get hold of your money as they wont know your pin. And if someone does steal the card you can simply just ring up your bank to cancel it.

    A major disadvantage is that we live in a money obsessed world, which means that people can take advantage of a credit card. For example use it for things that they can not afford, like a luxury holiday or a car. This means that they end up with big debts that can´t pay off.

    I´ve heard of Mark Zuckerberg, he is the founder of the social media site Facebook. He is a very successful billionaire that donates a lot of his money to charity.

  8. Nowadays, I buy in various ways payment in supermarkets and shops with cash, but lately I usually buy more online and I pay credit card online. I buy in many online stores. I almost always buy on amazon, but lately I'm also buying on the English Court, I buy the shoes that are somewhat cheaper. You can pay on delivery or by credit card online

    I know very many payment methods such as Visa, Mastercard, checkbooks, checks, cash, cash, income in the bank, etc ... .Now, it is developing the way of pay with our own mobile phone. I would try to pay with mine, it has to be exciting. In my opinion, it is more comfortable than paying with cash, even, than paying with a credit card.

    In the future we can pay with our touchpad or other things footprint surely there will be many more forms of payment.

  9. In the modern time, Money is energy for a life, and could purchase every thing, but sometime money can't buy a truelove. In fact, if we have no money, we won't spend for our life. Money is as well as blood in our body. Therefore, one of us can't lack of it. In the other hand, money isn't more important than friendship. I would like to tell you about my concerning with money in my life.

    If a person always thinks about money, they will not be happy and enjoy their life. Although, they have a lot of money, they still feel not enough because they want to be a richest millionaire. For me, I still remember my father's word that is I have to learn one of occupation for my life such as engineer, accountant or businessman.

    To sum up, money is devil. However, Money is of course very important for human beings to lead a decent and satisfying life. Hence, money would always be looked at as the most or at least one of the most important keys to happiness. it has become a part of what defines us as human beings as it allows us to live a life of dignity, happiness and contentment.

    In my opinion rich people should be tired of having so much money and they should not know what to do with it.
