  2. Thanks Irene!

    I hope it helps to those of you who want to practice their English in an autonomous way. The main aim is encourage you to write and be more fluent in your own language competence. All the posts by now have been written by our TAR Lucía Borreguero (Coruña's tutor) but you will see more and more hands taking part in this activity. All of you are invited to collaborate using the comments option.

    Have a look also to the links and virtual material suggested on the right. Try to subscribe yourself so that you could be alerted every time we post anything new.

    have a good course!

  3. Hello, just to practice a bit my english I would like to tell you that London is my favourite city and I like much more than NYC although this one is quite interesting as well. I never get bored getting there and this month I have been twice. This permit me to practice my english spoken. Museums are most of them free and with a very interesting art pieces and I like very much the theatre offer.
    Anyway, have a nice day :-)

  11. BRILLIANT¡¡¡¡¡

    First at all I would like to suggest a topic: to write down about traveling experience.

    In the other hand , what about our mistakes?
    May we be confident of parnets´ knowledge?

  12. Hi Luis Antonio,

    All the topics will be suggesting depending on the the unit we will be dealing in each period of the course. If you are interested on writing and practising your travelling vocabulary I could invited you to have a look and collaborate in this blog (Inglés para turismo):
    http://inglesturismo0607.blogspot.com/, which I have been conducting (with the help of other tutors) for my students of Tourism Studies.
    Don't worry about your mistakes. If we see there are very important ones, we will let you know. We prefer to make you more confident and fluent.

  13. The problem I have with my English spoken is sometimes I get nervous I begin to think: I am not going to understand him/her so if there is a word or an expression or even a phrasal verb I dont understand it, I get like blocked and get lost the meaning of the whole sentence. Sometimes I make up words and when I see the face of the people who I am speaking with I realise I have said something which is not right. Very recently I had to ask where could I take the train and I asked: excuse me, where do I pick up the train? so the employee pulling my leg, said: well, I am afraid it is a bit heavy..I realise that I have said something wrong but I cant avoid it in the moment. I am afraid I have a lot to learn...
    Nice day :-)
    Ow and I like very much this blog much more than the forums

    I have really had a good laugh, thank you so much! and I really needed it today after so much work!

    Paloma,
    A language is communication, just talk and write, communicate, and yes, they may smile at you here and there but take it like this: would that man be able to- at least- make the same mistake you did IN SPANISH??????
    Your effort is good enough, feel free to speak AND PRACTICE. You ARE learning.
    Here is my challenge to you: I'll write a post just for you but you will write at least some lines in every post I open, okay?
    By the end of the academic course you will have improved a little bit more...OR A BIG LOT!!!
    Now go and see YOUR post!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. By the way...there are other posts where you can also write your comments: come on, come in, enjoy and learn.

  17. Hi Paloma,

    DON'T THINK when trying to speak in the L". Just SPEAK, or WRITE. If you are thinking all the time if you are going to do good or bad you won't be able to produce everything. Just produce. With practice, you'll realize if you are doing good or bad. If you commit a mistake, there is lisguistic theory that sais that you have some kind of monitor inside that will prevent you to do it again in the future...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monitor_hypothesis

    I would like to tell you a communication problem when I first went to England. I broke my wirst while I was riding a bike and I was taken to the village doctor surgery. When the
    doctor asked me what had happened to me,I said I had a pain in my doll. The doctor couldn´t understand me so I pointed out to my wrist and he said I needed to have an X-Ray. Thank God,the language of sign works in every language.

  26. ¡What a good idea!
    I am sure this blog will be very useful for all of us, It´s so interesting...

    ReplyDelete
  27. well...

    This is my view of English language

    English like Spanish, German, Portuguese are just tools to communicate to each other, and those tools has parts like words, sentences and clauses that are like the gears and bolts of your tool, once you have a good repertoire of them then the end result of the language will return to you the better results.

    I know most of the people who write in this blog are glad to travel abroad, for me it is just like everyday work.

    I travel all weeks for my everyday work, live almost in hotels and amounting flying miles like mosquitoes gathering around a fire camp in a summer night, well... it is a good subject but personally I prefer the richness of discovering the true internal self that everybody carries with them in a friendly frankly chat, unfortunately that private world is always kept secret by a disguise mask and only in true friendhip one can enjoy of it.

    Nice to chat with you buds.

    Ah!, almost forget, thank you Lucía B. for your answer in the "Foro".

    Best regards

    Hello everybody.
    I understand the Anonymous who said that he (or she) is tired of travelling because that's his/her job. I agree with him/her (please, tell us who you are as to allow us to use just one pronoun!) that the authentic communication can only exist in true frienship. I've met some travellers who don't realize that what they are doing is but accumulating place names just to boast, and that their experiences are plainly vacuous since they only take a superficial glimpse over places and people with their own complexity, not always pleasant as they too often think.
    This is just a commentary about some kind of people. I hope most of you don't fit my description.
    I'm glad this blog does exist.

    1. Hello folks, and above all apologize for my english, I have not yet a apoken level that allows me to support a fluid conversation, I, m agree whith both Victor and Adolfo about how travell is it, In my opinion people who travell for one day or some hours in a country or city can´t see anything fhurther their´s cameras.Finally , I hope my english has been more or less understanding.

  30. Hi Victor.

    Anonymous is Adolfo, I agree on that most human experiences only scratch the surface of the everyday communication with others, but this is the modern life bequeath, the science and technological world in which the only important thing is the outer space without realizing that also an inner world exist within us, most of the people, including myshelf sometimes, are looking at the universe from inside-out without realizing that there is also a way of looking there that it is from outside-in.
    We leave in a world of man-the-robot, the one that only believe in what their senses could see, touch, taste and smell, only using the five sensors they have to acquire what's happening around them in the outside, but this is like staying at the front of a door communicating two rooms and only looking forward towards the front expanse without realizing that there exist other space on the back, and by just turning around 180 degrees is the only way of looking at the wonders that lie behind them.
    It is the same for the inner space, there are more beauty in the inner world of everyone of us than in the most beautiful country in the world, just to be discovered.

    Cheers

    Adolfo

    As this "page" is like the beginning of this blog, let's say, the main page, I was wondering if you, students, would like to suggest new posts or topics so that the blog is really made for and -why not- by you!

    I would like we spoke about art,now that we have had several art fairs in Madrid such as Arco, Madriart and we have so many and different art museums. I wonder to be exactly what does art mean and if we may consider art some of the stuff we see in these fairs, on tv or in certain museums. Where is the limit to consider it artistic or rubbish.
    Cheers

    1. Hy Paloma, in my oppinion the word "Art" is a great word,and what is art or not is a very interesting subject whith many points of view.After have reading Roland Barthes trial,"The Death of the Author" I Have a new point of view about art is it.For the moment my englis don´t allow me to engage an subeject so interesting.I would say that now I make the difference between "Art" and "Artist".I hope in spite of my english I woul be understanding.See you.

    On day the phylosophy professor at University is making an oral exam and asks a student:
    "Sir, Can you tell me what's the difference between ignorance and indiference?"

    The professor gave him and A+

  49. Anothe example of (by doing).

    Hello everybody!

    I agree with you all: this is a nice way to improve our English level.

    I promise to think how can we do something really interesting with this tool, in order to have fun and learn a lot.

    At first I think that we can create some files or contents about subjects such as "travelling" or "reading". Most of us use both in order to improve our language skills so it can be very interesting to share our knowledge about lovely readings or places to visit while you are in a English-speaking country.

    Travels or readings are only two subjects that I propose, but there are much more like movies, English cook...

    In conclusion my suggest is to do some posts with our ideas about readings and travelling in a special file.

    I am sure that we are going to do something great with this blog. Our blog!.

    Have fun this weekend and enjoy youselves!

    Bye,

  62. Hello,
    Thank you so much L. Borreguero!

    When I first came to Spain, I was so excited with my boyfriend`s job (he is a truck driver) so I decided to join him in his trips all over Europe.Once, we were in France loading potatoes in a private property.My boyfriend (now my husband) was preparing the truck and I was playing with the dog of the owner.My boyfriend called me.He had a very serious face and asked me: "Val, how do you say girlfriend in French?"
    "Why?" I asked.The owner had asked him. "C`est ta fille?" ( Is your daughter?)
    I`ll never forget the face of my poor man.He turned blue, violet,red....When we left the place he was really worried.The fact is that my husband is a strong man and the color of his hair is almost grey.But in that time he was 32 years old and I was 23...

    And the other story is when I celebrated my birthday (7th of July) in 4 countries.We had breakfast in Germany, we passed through Netherlands, we had lunch in Belgium and we finished in our uncle`s house, in France.
    For me, that was the best birthday I ever had!

    Hugs and kisses

    Hello, I would like to know how to use the device you told us to used to record the description of the map about swine flu cases in America. I know that you tell us how to do it and told us to use a link you posted, I was listening to the oral description that a mate did, but I didn't know what to do there. Did I have had to record myself there? Did I have had to use that image? In that space? It may be that you explained that to us in the forum but I couldn't find it and I would like to know how to use that device just to try to use it from now on. I'm very interested not only in Knowing how the programme works but also in using it, but I can't use it if I don't know how to. Don't you mind telling me how to do it?

    I would like to congratulate teacher and all of you, and tell you thanks!! because reading your post about topics and about yourself, I really learn a lot, and not only English but about different personal worlds.

    You know?, I think I'm in love.
    But, What is love? Love is life, said Tolstoy, and it is true to me.
    Although life is not (or not only) sufferance, jeaolus, paranoid, and the things that so many times love is.
    I would like to notice there is a link where you can find a proverb about love really important in my life:

    “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

    So love always gives us something, isn't it?

    I have talked a lot with my friends about love topic, I think nowadays is really difficult to do something that needs a lot of patience, a lot of time...after all, we are in a wild world, in wich everything is challenged so fast... what a formidable chance we need to have time and courage to love!

    See you,

    Cristina.

  90. Hi everyone,

    This is the first time that I write something here.

    Yesterday was my birthday. Nobody gave me a present, but my little sister and her husband helped me, to do somethings in my house. I think this was a very beautiful present and usefull. Spend time whith she and he was the best present that I can never have. I know that they can't read this, but I need tell it and share this whith everyone: that the best thing in the live is have a good family and be happy whith them.

  91. Ah, the good old days, how I miss you! I’m going through the valley of tears of Inglés Instrumental III and IV, forgetting whatever current English I knew in order to embrace Cromwell’s style. This bicephalous ED’s fusty Ikea-like pedagogics will see the end of me. And what to say about the textbook? An infamous panegyric of Ms Thatcher, Jesus Christ, the traditional family, with a Freudian penchant for stories in which little girls are humbled by males and unmercifully punished... Shame! Shame on you!

    The gloomiest side of it is that this Puritan Republic is here to stay; no chance of a change in the forthcoming years of the degree. Hard times those in which what you say is less important than the number of words in which you say it.

    I would ask to someone if there is a web or you have any information concerning to the way of contact to English/Irish/American people. I would like to keep in touch with someone to exchange any words and improve my English.
    I would be very thankful if you can help me or you can give a clue of how I can do it.
