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.

TIRED OF POLITICIANS AND POLITICS

Some people are getting really tired of politicians and politics. We have some examples here in Spain, but here's another one of a 4-year-old American girl:


Ordinary people want to live, work, study, sleep... just ordinary lives full of ordinary goals, so let us be!!!!

Make any comments you wish about the issue and tell me about the lyrics of the song by John Lennon.
Some little questions:
  1. What does 'wisdom' mean?
  2. What is the adjective that comes from this noun?
  3. Who are The Three Wise Men?
  4. Can you give me a synonym of 'let'?
  5. What does 'TO LET' mean?
