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.

Teaching Exchange?

Language - (hold down the CTRL key to select more than one):

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

A fear of being wrong?

Shakespeare gives us  some great quotes . My personal favourite when I think about learning another language:

Our doubts are traitors,
And make us lose the good we oft might win
By fearing to attempt.
William Shakespeare, "Measure for Measure", Act 1 scene 4
(1564 - 1616)

Quote of Quotes: fishing

Submitted by harryterrafrank on Ср, 12/03/2014 - 22:03

Language - (hold down the CTRL key to select more than one):

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)
