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. It would be great to be the best at something. For example, be the best at singing, at dancing, at school, etc. Although I've never been the best at something, I'm very good at rollerblading, either on land or on ice. That's what my friends say when we go together to the ice rink. However, I think that I'm not as good as professional skaters. I'm also good at languages.

    Now, I'm going to give you some advices of how to try to be the best doing something.
    Firstly, the thing you want to be the best at should be something that you really like. Secondly, you have to be practising it for years. If you aren't good at nothing, you can try to be the best dad, the best friend or maybe, the best husband.

    It would be amazing to have superpowers, and it's very funny to imagine how different my life would be if I had some of them. In instance, I'd like to have invisibility, because I'd can listen to what people say of me, I'd can go out of my home without my parents know it and play pranks. I would also like to fly, which has been my dream since I was little. Finally, I would like to have the superpower of healing, so I'd can save lots of lives. On the contrary, I wouldn't like to know what all the people think since I'd become crazy.

    It would be amazing to have superpowers, and it's very funny to imagine how different my life would be if I had some of them. For instance,I'd like to be able to become invisible so as to listen to what people say about me, I'd be able to go out of my home without my parents knowing it, and play pranks. I would also like to fly, which has been my dream since I was little. Finally, I would like to have the superpower of healing, so I'd be able to save lots of lives.

  3. Being the best at something would be fantastic. I haven't been the best at many things, however I'm sometimes the best at exams or the best at playing the saxophone. For example, I was the best of the saxophones in a competition and I almost won the contest, I was in second position. Playing the saxo is something that I do so well because I have a lot of speed in my fingers and I can play with a great velocity.



    Nowadays, we only look at what we don't know how to do or at what is more difficult for us to do and we don't realize of our big virtues. We never think of how we would be if we powered our abilities or how our life would be if we used them. However, not all the people have some ability, if you aren't good at anything, you can try to be the best friend, the best counselor, the best son or the best father.....



    To end, I'm going to give you some advice to try to be the best at something. Firstly you have to found your special ability. When you have found it, you must be practising it for years. Thirdly and the most important thing is that you have to enjoy it. Let's find our abilities and make more powerful them!!
