2026. If you obey, you win, believe me

Authorities have been chosen by people, sometimes, not always. What I mean today, you know, is that if you obey an authority for love to God you can get the impossible. / Picture from: hampteadroads com

2025. He likes to learn

When working on something day after day, you take the habit. 

In a college degree the more you dedicate to a subject the more you’ll like it, tentatively. 

The same or something similar should happen in English language classes: the more the students work, the more they will like English. Try to make classes nice, with nothing special, just hard work and dedication. 

Your students would perhaps like learning English moreand more. Just try for a period like this. / Photo from: man-swinging-golf-club roseknowshealth com

2024. We have a new prestigious dictionary

Real Academia de la Lengua Española has just published a new issue and edition of the new dictionary for speakers of Spanish, mainly in Spain but also from Mexico downward in America; well also for the Spanish-speaking people from the USA. 9,000 new words have been included in that dictionary, with many words from English, like chatear or tuitear. I just wanted to express that remarkable information. 

If you’re bilingual, you’re so fortunate.

2023. What's a teen inside like?

A person who treats teenagers can see the innerhood of those people. 

They're like volcanoes: everything is emerging from inside, and sometimes that adult can notice and realize of their issues, doubts, joys, frustrations. 

It's a time when parents should be close to the kid, and albeit teens have their inner world, parents should be at disposal of them. A light prompt should be received by his or her parents so as to help out and explain things. 

It's kind of being their friends. / Photo from: Teen-girl-thinking sportfitness com mx

2022. Can I still acquire a language?

Infants, children, teens and adults can acquire the foreign language. And not only learn it. 

In order to acquire the language it is necessary to listen and read massively. 

A time arrives when you don’t care too much if you’ve got to read or listen something in English. Your mind has adapted itself to the language. 

I repeat, also adults can still acquire the language. I see that in my students: they are kind of thinking in English, most of them, and I see it because of the answers and responses in English they give me. / Photo from: languages sg

2021. Do it yourself!

We teachers dedicate a long time to teaching. We are committed to teaching, don’t we? Spanish writer Gabriela Mistral wrote:

Donde haya un árbol que plantar, plántalo tú.
Donde haya un error que enmendar, enmiéndalo tú.
Donde haya un esfuerzo que todos esquivan, hazlo tú.
Sé tú el que aparta la piedra del camino.

I hope to translate it soon. It's nice.
