Go Super to Listen Go Super!

There are many different types of men in this world. But any type of man can be kind and helpful. He could call his mother every weekend just to say hi. He might carry groceries for an older person. Or he may sit and talk to a friend who has had a difficult day. A man like this is probably also very handsome and a good dresser. We might say that he is a real gent.

Gent is short for gentleman, and a gentleman is the best kind of man. Actor Val Kilmer played Batman in the popular movie Batman Forever. However, Adam West was the original Batman in the 1966-1968 TV show. When Batman movies became popular later, Adam West always helped the actors who played Batman. Sadly, Adam West died recently. Val Kilmer remembers that he was always helpful and kind, a real gent.

Who do you know that is a real gent? What type of personality does this person have?

 Lionel Andres Messi , is a real gent. François Hollande is a real gent. Such as those men all are real gent.

A real gentleman is not necessary  rich and handsome , but he must love his parents, love his wife, love his child, love his family. He must be responsible for all what he said, what he did. He would do his best in his work when he was working. He would spend much more time companying his parents and his wife and his child after his work. He is not a ergasiomania.


A real gentle man is polite and good-natured.  He is polite to friend , relates, neighbors, and anyone who is dealing with him. He can keep his shirt on anytime.

A real gentleman has a healthy personality and a sunny mind.  He is full of positive energy.
