Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Universities should give the same amount of money to their students’ sports activities as they give to their university libraries.
091 trade business of buying, selling, or exchanging goods
092 exist have life, be real
093 tram one of the rails or tracks of a tramway
094 mirror piece of glass in which one can see oneself
095 rail fixed bar
096 lie make a false statement
097 envelop paper container for a letter
098 purpose reason for doing something
099 exchange give and receive in return
100 equal same in size, value, etc.
039 The truth will set you free. Ignorance is bliss.
I've seen the comic show where the education got in MGLU (the university I've graduated from) was joked about. As it's too academic. "Those graduants speak "too much" and beat about the bush".
I've taken my daughter's magazine. I'll try to translate a piece of a fairytale. Don't be too strict.
I am a native English speaker who teaches Spanish at a college in Central NY. I'm interested in creating a cooperative language/culture course in which my students learning Spanish would exchange 30 minutes of conversation with someone in Spain for 30 minutes of English conversation help. During the semester, we would also meet as a group. In other words, ideally a professor in Spain would work with me to have his/her class work with my class. I generally have about 15 students. The class would start in January and end in May, 2015. Please help! Maria

18 Dec: 私は人生を---生活上の平凡な事どもを---まるで丁度
I want to look at life --- at the commonplaces
of existence--- as if we had just turned a corner
and run into it for the first time.

Shakespeare gives us some great quotes . My personal favourite when I think about learning another language:
Fishing is the chance to wash one's soul with pure air. It brings meekness and inspiration, reduces our egotism, soothes our troubles, and shames our wickedness. It is discipline in the equality of men, for all men are equal before fish. Herbert Clark Hoover (1874-1964)
