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.

Can flowers make bees smile?

 

Surely, flowers can make people smile!! Of course, bees love flowers, but bees are in a real danger and so is humankind if we don't take care of them. I'm a bee friend myself, so are farmers as bees are so important for their crops, and you?

 

Here's a listening exercise connected with the issue: What's happening to our bees?  (6 Minute English, BBC Learning English) and this Lingohack episode:

 

LINGOHACK  >>>

  • Episode 200826 / 26 August 2020    >>>  Free flowers to bring happiness -    Language related to 'happiness'.  Need-to-know language: lift the spirits, spread a smile, joy, boost (someone's) morales & random act of kindness.

 


As well, many of our students in 1º & 2º Bachillerato (last year in 4º ESO: Lucía García, Rocío Valdés (B1- Cambridge), David Bacas, José Corzo, Daniel Del Pozo, Francisco González, Álvaro Martín, Cristián Ramón (B1- EOI)  and 1º Bachillerato: Lucía y Marina Guirado (B1- EOI)) have brought us happiness as they have succeeded in their B1 and B2 exams. CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF THEM!!!

  5. In my opinion, all animals help nature, in this case, bees help flowers, most of my friends are scared if they sting, but not an anecdote that I had as a child is that I stepped on a bee when I was in the playtime

    1. People are afraid of bees because they can sting you. There are some people that kill these little passive animals. Meanwhile there are people that kill them, there are people who take care of them and help them to survive. In my case, I love bees. I think they are very beautiful animals, and I think they are very helpful for nature and the flowers.
      Anyway, people don't know the damage that they cause by only killing a little bee.

      Also thank you for congrats me for succeeding in my B1 exams.

  8. I´m sure that you have got scared many times every time you have seen a bee because you thought that it could hurt you . However, are bees as dangerous as we think ?. What is happening with bees ? and why are they so important?.

    As you know , bees are flying insects that have an important role as pollinating agents in plant´s reproduction . Moreover , they have an ecological and economic importance . First because about 70% of plants with flowers need the pollination by insects and bees are the main pollinating insects. Secondly, because honey is the main sweet , natural substance produced by bees and it´s something that people like buying and it is also a quality product .

    As you can see , bees can be very important for us because if there were not bees , plants could not reproduce and as a result , we couldn´t eat natural products like fruits or vegetables and shops couldn´t sell these products. Despite all this , many bee colonies are disappearing probably because of parasites , climate change or by the use of pesticides .

    I think that bees are finally living organism although they can hurt us and they have an important role so, next time you see one , first think about that before killing it .

  9. I think that there is always a myth with bees because the people say that bees sting you, as a result of that the majority of people are afraid of bees. So, when they see a bee they think that they are going to stingthem, but this only happens if you disturb her.
    There are people that they don't have afraid of bees. But i´m one of the people that I am more afraid of them. Even so, bees are necessary for all the world because they are essential for the pollination.
    I think that “Free flowers to bring happiness” is a beautiful act, because any person that received the bunch of flowers they will have a funny and beautiful time. I think that there should be more acts like this because they only bring happiness.

  10. All the animals in this world help us in something, as useless as they may seem, all of them make our life posible. Many people think that bees are useless, but they help us in many things. Bees provide us with honey to us and pollinate flowers. This things are more important than they appear. Most of my friends are afraid of them, but I don't care about bees.
    Since i was very young, i have loved all type of insects and i look for information of them. My favourite one was the queen bee because it is the only one wich can lay eggs.
    We need to take a lot of care of animals, because there are dying out, and without animals we will have a different life, much more difficult and much saddler.
    The animals are so important and we are forgetting them, we need to look after them more.

  11. All the animals of this world are for a reason, the bees in this case, are in charge of making honey and pollinate the flowers, honestly, I am very afraid, but I know that they are insects necessary for the cycle of life.
    I think we should save the bees because they are disappearing and Einstein once said that “life without bees would be a global disaster, man would only have four years to live. Without bees, there is no pollination, no grass, no animals, no mens".
    The bees are disappearing for the pollution, the reduced habitat, the fires and the pesticides.
