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.

Latest viral video to watch!!!



People just go bananas these days making videos and uploading them onto Youtube or any other digital platform hoping them to become the most watched videos, that is to say, viral even if it is his own baby who smashed the family TV set or if one of his neighbours bumped its car into a street lamp. We may laugh now, but in the mean time we are just waiting for the next one, like the water bottle flip challenge.

Do you know what the yellow-highlighted words mean? Try to use them in your next comment or composition.

 


Here are some articles to read about the issue:

  2. In this essay I'm going to write about what memes are, who use memes, who invented them and videos which have become viral.

    What is a meme?
    A 'meme' is a virally-transmitted cultural symbol or social idea.

    The majority of modern memes are captioned photos that are intended to be funny, often as a way to publicly ridicule human behavior. Other memes can be videos and verbal expressions.

    The world of memes is noteworthy for two reasons: it is a worldwide social phenomenon, and memes behave like a mass of infectious flu and cold viruses, travelling from person to person quickly through social media, such us Instagram, Twitter, etc.

    Who Uses Memes?
    The most of internet memes are transmitted by millennials. This is because that age group is hyper connected with social media. The average age of meme users is increasing.

    Who Invented Memes?
    The "meme" word was first introduced by evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins, in 1976. "Meme" comes from the Greek word "mimema" (meaning "something imitated", American Heritage Dictionary).

    It's greatly difficult to know when a video is going to become viral. However, there are a lot of people who want to create a viral video as you can become famous. The most viral videos and challenges of this year are such us, the mannequin challenge, Andy is coming, The floor is lava, etc. Nowadays, the most seen video in Youtube is the song 'Despacito' created by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee with 3,500 millions of visits.

  3. In this essay I shall examine what makes a video go viral. By the way, the first video to go viral on the Internet was Dancing Baby, which is a 3D animation of a baby dancing the cha-cha, released in the late 1990s. Recently, a YouTube manager has shared the top five tips to connect with the audiences, and I am going to write the most important ones.

    First of all, caring what we share. It’s because people are more likely to share content when it says something meaningful or valuable to them. Working together with someone famous, since if a famous promotes you; his fan base will engage your content. Last, but not least, knowing that you aren’t alone, since there are lots of great tools and resources available to help you.

    Currently, our social networks are plenty of memes, but what are they? A meme is a picture or video with an amusing caption that a lot of people share with each other online, usually with peers. This word was invented by Richard Dawkins to represent an idea or concept that spreads in human culture in a similar way to a gene.

    To sum up, I think that thanks to these pieces of useful advice we can post something on the internet and almost immediately, it gets passed on very quickly from person to person online, that is to say, it goes viral. Indeed, this is good if your aim is to promote yourself or something of yours.
