Types of learners


The other day hector and I got together to study for our test and we were discussing the different types of learners.After doing some reading and searching, we found out we actually have some mixed characteristics of them. We recommend you to watch this video and try to see what type of learners you are.

It's all about sharing...

Today, Mauro and I are going to be tested... and anxiety is on top!

We have some groups in common, Facebook groups, WhatsApp groups, etc... and we found out that the main idea of all these groups is sharing.


What to share?

Share everything! I love sharing because I know that my ideas can help other people. If I have some knowledge that might help others, why should I keep it to myself? Sharing is a way of confirm if all the things I am studying on are correct. I have to say that I share in a double sense... this means that I share to help others but also because I want to be helped. If my summary is incomplete, somebody will tell me. Sharing helps us growing.

Keeping things to myself makes me pity? No, but I think that it tells about your insecurities. Knowledge is not a trophy. Knowledge is to be passed on. And even more if it isn't your own!

I learnt a lot about how people learn and what to take into account when teaching. Now let's see if I can put all those tools into practise...

In a week more or less I will tell you about my test... I wait for the best!

Thanks for Reading!

extroverts and introverts


This nice video shows the differences between introvert and extrovert people. Did you think introvert people are only anti-social and calm and extroverts are only talkative and energetic? Watch this video and think again!
We hope you like it!

More about SLA

Working with accents is really difficult. You must be willing to change your pronunciation and you need a very good ear. Of course, a good teacher is also required.

None of these elements are given in the example... BUT IT VERY FUNNY!!!!

SLA

As we are going to start speaking about second language aquisition we wanted to share this video with you. It is from FRIENDS the american tv show. In this episode Joey needs to learn french for an audition. Phoebe, who knows the language, tries to teach him. As you can see, learning a new language isn´t as easy as it looks.
We hope you enjoy it!
