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.

Parents and children at home during the lockdown (QUARANTINE: DAY 51)


After more than 7 weeks at home all together, what is it like? Any problems? Any arguments? Do you find it hard to share the same space 24 hours for  more than 50 days with the rest of the family. Who is the member of the family who has the most problems? And the fewest?


Here are some articles for you to read about the issue:




And also a listening exercise  >>>> How to cope with children at home (6 Minute English, BBC Learning English)

Next week we will be doing the exam (First 6 units), probably on Thursday. On Tuesday in our online class we will go on correcting (p. 77 - Exercise 8).

 La semana que viene haremos el examen de las 6 primeras, que será la base del examen de mínimos, y el martes seguiremos corrigiendo a partir del ejercicio 8, página 77, y resolviendo dudas de cara al examen. Si vemos que nos hace falta repasar más, retrasaremos el examen.
