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.

The only thing Casillas wanted to say is....




The only thing Casillas wanted to say with this video was.... :

a.- how much he loved his country.

b.- his days in the national team were over.

c.- his favourite actor is Sylvester Stallone.

What do you think? Watch the video and answer


As you have seen we have emphasized what the Spanish goalkeeper said by using a most interesting structure, that is to say, a CLEFT SENTENCE. But what is it? Here are a few links for you to see how cleft sentences work ( 1  2   3 ) and you can also do some exercises about this grammatical issue:  1  2   3  

Some examples:
  • It was 27th June when Italy defeated Spain in the Eurocup in France.
  • What I want you to do this summer is to watch New That's English episodes.

  1. To begin with, I think Casillas only wanted to say with this video how much he is grateful of all the fans who have supported him during his time in the national team. In many cases, there are many people who only makes false testimonies about Casillas and only want to harm him. From my point of view, José Mourinho has made a lot of damage in Casillas' career because when he arrived to Real Madrid, he only wanted Casillas to stay in the bench. Probably, the biggest injustice with Casillas took place in Real Madrid, because he went out of the team like he was a normal player, without a prestige. I think this.

    Now, Spain is eliminated of Euro Cup, because of France defeated them in the 27th June. What a pity!! Yesterday, there was a match between Germany and France, France defeated Germany with two excellent goals of Griezmann, one of them of head and the other with the leg. It was a beutiful macth.

    Perhaps Casillas is one of my idols, but I have many others idols. Because of him, Spain has won many competitions like The World Cup of South África in 2010 and the Eurocups of 2008 and 2012. Thank you Casillas for all that you are for this country.

  2. Iker Casillas Fernández is a Spanish Football player who play that goalkepper in the F.C Porto in Portugal. He is an international player with Spain since 2000 and their captain since 2006, and he has been proclaimed European champion and world champion with his selection.

    He developed most of his career at Real Madrid, first in his lower categories and from 1999 to 2015 in the first team, being the second player in club history with more games played with 725, and having only ahead to Raúl González with 741.

    He was considered during a lot of time how the best keeper by the FIFA and the UEFA, so the IFFHS chose him that the best keeper in the world durring 5 years. He was also included uninterruptedly between 2007 and 2012, in the final list of candidates for the Golden Ball.

    Finally, I think that Iker is the best goalkeeper in the history world, together Gianluigi Buffon, and I consider that he never should got out, and he must retired in the club of his life, Real Madrid.

  6. Iker Casillas is a Spanish professional footballer, who plays as a goalkeeper for Porto and the Spanish National Team, but lastly, He have not been playing too much with Spain . As a professional player, Iker has only played for two clubs, Real Madrid, and Porto, which, in my opinion, this means how faithful and fighter He is . He has been considered one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time.

    Iker Casillas was born on 1981 in Madrid. Casillas started playing with Real Madrid at the age of 19th, which means, He made his debute with Real Madrid in 2000, 18 years go, and if I´m not wrong he was the youngest goalkeeper ever to play a champions league final. Since then he has been the regular first team player for real Madrid. Iker Casillas captained Spain to the Euro 2008, which He won, He was part of the Spanish team in the 2010 World Cup, which He also won, He retained the European Championsip in 2012.
