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.

Born to succeed!!!

These girls were really born to succeed!!!! SPAIN WOMEN'S BASKETBALL NATIONAL TEAM are the European champions once again.


Before talking about some of our students in 1º ESO, who are really born to succeed (hopefully!!!), let's some electrical devices which seem to be built to fail (listening exercise, 6 Minute English, BBC Learning English).

Some articles about being born to succeed for you to read:

On the contrary, some electrical devices, especially electrical appliances, seem to be built to fail (some interesting vocabulary to bear in mind: planned obsolescence, faulty goods...)

English with Lucy: Here's a very good way to learn about the difference between SEE, LOOK & WATCH.

And now that you know the difference, let's watch some video sketches made by our students in 1º ESO:

  1. I am going to write on the victory of the Spanish feminine team of basketball, born to succeed and on the machines done to fail in a time.

    The national Spanish team of feminine basketball overcome France in the final(71-55) and conquer the third Eurobasket after of 1993 and 2013. The gold of Prague already is 12º medal in 54 years, the eighth one in the last nine Europeans and the fifth consecutive one in all the competitions. A memorable tour of a legendary team who has constructed his identity.With Alba Torrens like stiletto and Sancho Lyttle like pillar.

    On one hand, I think that in case of the persons, they have to think that they are born to be successful, and this way these persons were achieving everything what they propose. In case of the machines it is indifferent since they do not think. The only intention of them is to do well the work and to be able to satisfy the persons.

    On the other hand, I think that the machines are done in order that in a time they fail and have to arrange or even buy other one it. Many companies on having trumped the machine want to arrange them they and this way, to gain more money.From my point of view the companies make the machines in order that they fail in a time and this way they gain more money.

  2. The Spain women's basketball national team is the team formed for women of Spanish nationality that represents Spain across the Spanish Federation of Basketball. They are one of the most successful basketball teams in the world since they have just won the Eurobasket and I remember that last year they won a silver medal in the Olympic Games.

    I watched the fourth quarter of the final of the Eurobasket in which they played against France. They played so well that they defeated France with a big difference of points, they have almost twenty points of difference. I have read in the newspapers that Spain didn't have any problem during all the match, they won comfortably.
    If they continue playing this way, they will soon be the number one of Europe and the best of all the world. I completely agree with you, I also think they are born to succeed.

    I've also read the article about electrical devices and it isn't the first time that I read companies make their products in order that they don't work after the guarantee.

  3. The Spain women's national basketball team represents Spain in international basketball competitions for women and is controlled by the Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB). Spain is one of the most successful basketball teams in the world, The Spain women´s national team is currently second on Fiba Ranking just behind USA, Spain is the current European champions and they won the silver medal in Women's World Cup and silver medal in Olympic Games, where both tournaments, they lost against USA.

    In the final of the Eurobasket, Spain played against France, I watched the whole match, and in my opinion It was a very strange game, for sure one of the strangest matches that I´ve ever seen, I mean, the referees clearly wanted France to win, It was impossible to the referees give a fault for Spain. But Spain is Spain, They fought for every ball, they gave their best and they finally got it.

    Finally let´s hope our Men Spanish National Team win this Eurobasket, they are playing really good, In my opinion we have a fantastic team, We´ll see if Hernangomez brothers can replace Gasol brothers, At the moment Juancho and Willy, are playing just amazing
