We have heard it spoken in movies and on television. We may have even seen people speaking it publicly. But most of us did not understand what was being said. Some of us can understand a little of it, but not much else. I’m referring of course to Spanish. Just check out that it really isn’t that hard through the following video:

There are more Spanish speaking people in America today than there were several years ago. More than likely a large percentage of our populace will be Spanish speaking within the next decade. How do we prepare for what is yet to come? Spanish is a language we must learn.

Picture yourself as a reader. You relax in a comfortable chair for a few moments with a magazine, perhaps the latest National Geographic. As you thumb through the pages, you encounter an article that describes the excavation of the ancient city of Ashkelon.

The title page captures your attention: historic figures such as Samson, Goliath, Herod, Alexander the Great, and Richard the Lion-Hearted may have once walked the streets of this forgotten city.

When students are able to connect ideas within and between sentences, they learn faster and remember more. Skilled reading requires the mastery, integration, and application of numerous skills and knowledge. It requires some work but benefits are absolutely essential to education

Immediately your mind begins to make associations as to what you remember about each of these people-Biblical characters, a Greek conqueror, an English Crusader. Although you have never heard of Ashkelon, you begin to place it both historically and geographically.

You predict that the excavation is taking place somewhere in the Middle East, and as you read on, a map showing the location of the site on the Mediterranean coast of Israel confirms your prediction.

Your appearance and overall presentation are what drives people’s first impression of you. But it’s your performance that creates a lasting impression. This is important because the lasting impression that you leave could be your conduit to new opportunities. So here, we’ll talk about How to Create a Lasting Impression.

Last Thursday I concluded my service with my biggest client that I’ve been working with for the past two years. This past Monday I started a new assignment with a new client.

Do you know this quote:

“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.” ~ Zig Ziglar

So, on the day I left my previous job, I received a number of emails from my peers congratulating me for my new opportunity….Most of my peers appreciated my contributions to the team. I’m 99% positive that I will cross paths with many of them in the future by way of opportunity referrals.

I left a lasting impression. And it wasn’t by accident…it was by design.

It’s Really Not that Hard

I learned early that a good portion of people work really hard at figuring out the minimum amount of work that they can do to get by. There’s a high interest in flying under the radar. Some folks are fine with being average and blending within mediocrity. They don’t care about progression…they just want to keep what they have; nothing more, nothing less. And to top it off, negative-talk normally floods the office.Read More →

Apart from English is Spanish among the most spoken ‘languages’ on the planet. Because of this, a good idea would be to consider training in the Spanish language. I’ve dedicated my most recent posts mainly to the Spanish Language and tips for learning Spanish fast and easy, but it the New Year, I promise I’ll spend more time and writing on my other hobbies like sports, running, and my great family!

If you’re interested in taking lessons in Spanish, ensure that the college or even the teacher a person hire is really an indigenous Spanish language speaker since this will make a world of difference.

Additionally, there’s a distinction between different Spanish dialects. Quite simply, the Spanish language a person learns in South America or even Puerto Rico will be quite different from the Spanish you discover in Spain’s capital, Madrid.

The official language for Spain is Spanish. However, Spanish has become very popular in more than 40 other countries outside of Spain. In the United States, Spanish is widely spoken and is ranked second to English. It has been a very popular choice as a foreign language subject in schools and Universities. In addition, it is also being used in Pacific Asia and Africa to some extent. So check out this post about how to learn Spanish fast and easy.

Spanish started in Northern Spain as a Latin dialect and today, there are some 400 million native Spanish speakers across the globe. Ranking spoken languages by a count of native speakers, Spanish is ranked second in the world.

On a global scale, Spanish is also being widely used in areas such as TV, film, literature, and music. It is one of the 6 official languages at the United Nation.

Communication between speakers of Italian and Spanish is quite easy due to many similarities between the languages. Moreover, Spanish and Portuguese have many similarities in their vocabulary and grammar, due to Arabic influences and the fact that they’re both “Roman Languages”.

Five things I’ve been thinking a lot about. These are my Five Thoughts:

1) Wanderlust: it’s really beneficial to work/live in a different city if you suffer from wanderlust [definition: a very strong or irresistible impulse to travel] because you’re constantly surrounded by new people, new places, and new things to do. Living in the city [Toronto] for the summer allows me to reconnect with people I wouldn’t otherwise see often, try different restaurants, shop at different stores, and go different places.

I can ride the subway wherever I want [although, I don’t, because I’ve become one of those pretentious people that one goes where I can walk to. I ain’t paying $3 to go 5 blocks!] and pretty much do whatever I want. haha. It’s fun! [I should write about all the places I’ve been so far…]

I love searching for places on Google and sometimes still on Yelp, in particular, looking for local desserts, cafes, and eateries to try out and enjoy. This city is now my oyster!

2) Working with men: in the past, I have written about my personal conviction not to have male friends; not to build intimate relationships with men through shared experience, memory making, whatever with the opposite sex out of respect for my future husband. anyways. That might all sound sketchy or foolish. You can read the post here.

The fact is that “breaking up” with my guy friends was not an easy or welcomed thing. but I did it coz I could see that that was something God was placing on my heart. since then I have rejected all notions of really being friends with guys, and have a heightened sensitivity to it. How strange, then, it is to find myself in a work environment where the people I work most closely with, the ones whom I have hit it off best with, are guys.Read More →

This is a small overview of the most popular Spanish learning courses. The listed courses are pretty good and student-friendly. This is a great time for learning foreign languages. The quality of the learning material has improved quite dramatically over the years, prices are generally very reasonable, and the nasty no-pain-no-gain approach to language learning is long gone.

Over time, some Spanish courses that were once popular have now disappeared from the radar, while others have turned out to be much more successful than I had imagined.

Here are the top 5 Spanish courses currently on the market. They all have their own learning approach and emphasize different aspects of the language. I have written reviews for all of them and linked to the free lessons they offer.

It is estimated that 89% of the Spanish speaking population lives on the American Continent. This represents Hispanics whose first language is Spanish and that speak Spanish exclusively. This does not include those who speak Spanish as a second language. In fact, the United States is the second largest Spanish-speaking country in the world with 61.8 million Spanish speakers, second only to Mexico with 114.5 million, and followed by Spain with 48.4 million. So if you want to learn Spanish, try Rocket Spanish.

If one includes Colombia, these four countries represent over 50% of all Spanish speakers in the world. Spanish is: One of the easiest languages to learn; one of the most widely spoken languages in the world; is the second language most widely used in international communication; One of the official languages of the United Nations and its organizations; useful in creating a wide range of opportunities.

I quite often stumble on a great article on learning Spanish that genuinely draws my interest. The ensuing blog post on the subject of the said subject most definitely meets that description. It really does a really good job of outlining how to learn Spanish and I believe that you’ll also find it completely beneficial just as I did.
