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.

Have you noticed the use of 'ENOUGH'? Remember:

  • ENOUGH + nouns (both countable and uncountable nouns) >>>  I've got enough time to study for my exams. There are enough chairs for everybody.

  • Adjectives/Adverbs + ENOUGH   >>>>  The exercise was easy enough for me to do it. Fernando Alonso didn't drive fast enough to win the race.

 

 

And also remember the uses of TOO (which are identycal to the uses of SO):

  • Resultado de imagen de going forward

    TOO + adj/adv   >>>>   The book is too long for me to read it in one week. He walks too slowly.

  • TOO + much/many + nouns  >>>  Messi has got too much money. There are too many chairs.
