What does 'commitment' mean? Now that we come to the end of the school year, rate your teachers, your parents, your friends...and obviously yourselves regarding the degree of commitment you show in your everyday life.
Some people, especially politicians, are very keen on saying:
"Do as I say, not as I do" (6 Minute English, BBC Learning English)
This lack of commitment is the doom of our society, especially serious among our younger generations.
Have a look around and you will see that those people who succeed in life have a high degree of commitment to what they do, such is the case of Muhammed Ali, Rafa Nadal, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela...
