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.

In your comment you can use QUANTIFIERS (Here's a video for you to watch and some exercises for you to do). For example: "At home we eat very little bread, so we do not buy much".

  1. Many people hasn´t got enough money for life, it is caused for many things, for example, the bad situation that these persons are living, the places where they life, especially in places underdeveloped where it has extreme poverty or the economic crisis,… Many families life this hard situation and they need some money to feed of their kids and for survive day to day. Kids haven´t got a good childhood in this hard situation because some kids can´t go to school and they must job.

    A lot of food in good condition is pulled and wasted because the appearance of food in supermarkets are so important for sell this products to people. This food is good for our health and the imperfect appearance doesn´t affect and it is editable. This food can be used for people who hasn´t got enough money to eat each day.

    Tesco is to become the only UK retailer to not longer waste food fit for human consumption. The company’s chief executive, Dave Lewis, has urged other supermarket chains to follow Tesco’s lead and adopt the changes that it will implement by March 2018 because they think that it´s a good way to stop the hungry and a good way to take advantage of this food.

    It is necessary to take advantages of all of things that we have because many people hasn´t got it and we must help us for have a better life. This people value more the small things that most people.

  3. Many people are dying of hunger, because they do not have enough money to buy food and eat. This cause is due to not having work in those places, and there is a lot of crisis. Some children have to work to get food instead of going to school. and learn. These people should feed their children. That is why we should not waste food and not make a large amount for one person, we should take advantage of the food. For example in supermarkets when they spend a few days and the fruit has not been sold and is in bad shape they throw it away, that food could be used to feed those people.

  4. Poverty, is a situation or way of life with scarce resources to meet human needs, due to lack of resources, such as food, housing and education.
