Talent vs Hard Work


Dear students,
It has been a while since the last posts, so that´s why now we have an excellent topic you can all discuss about.

In this blog we want to know your position and points of view, but you will need to support your opinions with facts and/or anecdotes to sustain your outlook on this topic.
We are all anxious to read your comments.
