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 moment of truth is right here!!!

Yes, the moment of truth is right here!! This third term will be really short and it is time for students to do their best, especially those in Bachillerato or those preparing for certain exams.


Now you have to be flexible and ready to work in a broader range of jobs, so you'll need a university degree, a good level of foreign languages and so many more things. Here are some articles to read about the issue before you do the listening exercise I propose you:

  1. CV is the document of presentation of skills, training and working life, in order to opt for a job.

    Today we can observe the number of people who have a high academic level, with university degrees and who have the ability to speak languages, but still, very few get a job.

    On the one hand, many people in the curriculum write things that are'nt true and that they are'nt qualified to do. Many times these people get a job earlier than the ones who are really skilled.

    On the other hand, when you choose a job, if you are a inexperienced person the boss can do with you what they want such as work 12h and don't pay you the minimum salary that there is demanded by the government.

    To conclude, when you choose a career that you want to dedicate in the future, you have to think very well and see the exits you have to know if it favor you, without forgetting the effort you have to do to get a good marks in bachiller and selectivity.

  2. I think that this last trimester we should not try as hard as we should be prepared enough, we should have worked all previous trimester but it was not. Now we must strive twice as we must of the work we did not do. I think it's a problem that we postpone so much of our work when it really is the most efficient.

    On the other hand, in addition to postponing things, another problem with which we find ourselves today is the lack of interest in the subjects as well as the laziness to work, since the minimum effort is an impossible job.

    For me this third trimester is important because I want my marks to be very good and to be able to do things correctly, so I will take advantage of the trimester to the maximum of some of my classmates to be able to make the most profit possible of the Bachiller, that right now is one of the most important things.

    In conclusion, I think that each one should reflect on their actions and instead of leaving things for the last day, they should study day by day and although now it is an effort then we will have long term benefits.

  4. We are in the third term and this is the moment when the student should give the best of them. The third term is the shortest of the year. now, each one of us must try pass all subjects for have a good summer.

    All of them must studying, doing the homework and pay attention in class every day. During this time, we go to have exams daily and we can't fail an exam because this can do lowe the average or suspend a subject.

    For me, in the third term, I hope pass all subjects because I want have a good summer. For me is very important pass all in june because I could rest all summer. Also, I will try that my average is as high as possible because the next year I want make selectivity and I want have the most possible note.

    The next year, we must work hard because second of bachillerato for me is the most difficult grade in the school and we can have exams daily and we need be prepared.

  6. To begin with, when we talk about CV we refer to the term Curriculum Vitae. It can be literally translated as course of life. It is a summary of your career history that is often the first phase in getting yourself noticed by potential employers. A recruiter will typically take just five to seven seconds to read your CV, so that it must say hire me! Here are some pieces of useful advice: be impeccable with your spelling and grammar, make sure your CV is both digital and print-out, focus on using facts to describe what you do, be selective, use positive active verbs...

    On the contrary, there is a difficult question. Is one career enough nowadays? Actually, I have no idea, but I think that it would be better in the future. Getting a career it is a difficult task, so two careers must be even harder. It is a good option if you want to learn new skills and this will bring us more employment opportunities.

    All in all, I think that we should do our CV the best as possible because it reflects all our professional life and our future job depends on how attractive it would be. Personally, I reckon that just one career is enough to be able to get a good job. As well, we don’t have to forget the importance of having a good level of a foreign language.

  7. We are in the more important days of the course, we are in the third term, this is the moment that decides all course and the most difficult for students. We should study a lot of to pass a good summer, each know that have to do to pass all of subjects.

    If you have a fail in a examn of the third term, you are going to have a hard moments, because if you don't study now you have to study in summer. And I think that the summer is for enjoy it.

    But really you shouldn't stop of study in summer a bit everyday, because each course are more and more difficult, especially subjects like English, Maths, Physics and Chemistry, and more.. I think that this year I have a lot of fail in exams and now I'm going to pay it .

    But I try to finish as best as possible the third term, really I'm a bit busy because I have to study too for the Conservatory of Music and I'm in 4 of profesional which is a very difficult course. Really I'm a bit overwhelmed with everything, this summer I have to take a important decision to leave or not to the conservatory.

  8. Nowadays, students are very worried about their grades, especially those in Bachillerato or those preparing for certain exams. This is due to the big amount of exams they have in such a short time. Teachers say that it's time for students to do their best in the third terms, I don't really think so, so let's talk about this.

    The school year lasts nine months, these nine months are divided in three terms. In these nine months you have to show your teachers what you are be able to learn. I personally think that we must do our best during all the school year because in the third term we are very tired and we probably won't have the grades that we hope.

    In addition, I want to say that if you want to get a job today you must show up your CV. It is simply a summary of your career history. Moreover, you should have a good level of languages such as the B1 or the B2 in English or in French and you should also have a university degree. These are only some things that you should have today for have a good job.

  9. Nowadays, the education is so important in our society because it is a requisite for be a good person, for our family is proud of us, for people respect us, for learn many things and we are more intelligent and for arrive so far in our life.

    When we are children, we go to school and in there we learn many things and we socialize with the rest of children. We learn to speak, the numbers, to share with the others, to do things with people,… This education stage is so important in a person because it is the based for his future.

    Bachillerato is one of the most important time in the school because the global note could change your future. And the selectivity exams are so much important.

    I think that is so important study because we can learn better things that around us.
