The Secret To Connecting With People

Most people never listen. ~ Ernest Hemingway For a long time I didn’t feel like I had a lot of people to relate to. Being shy, I didn’t find myself in a lot of conversations with people I didn’t know, and when I did, I was uncomfortable. Bonds did form, deep ones sometimes, but it was always a product of circumstance. I made friends with people I was in class with or worked with, because some interaction is bound to happen in those places. I’ve shed much of my shyness through deliberately speaking up more and other forms of comfort-zone-pushing, but I eventually made a discovery that really opened the floodgates for me. The secret to connecting with people is this: Always try to understand what people really mean when they speak. 11 Cynical Proverbs About Love From Around the World.

La firma Colour Trick, con sede en Gijón, está triunfando con su método para perfeccionar la pronunciación del inglés. Se trata de un código que asocia los 20 fonemas vocálicos de esta lengua con colores. “No un color al azar, sino uno que contiene el sonido que representa”, señala Rosa de la Concha, una de las fundadoras de la empresa y creadora del método, premiado por el British Council. La firma ha lanzado también una aplicación de su sistema para iPhone y iPad, ahora entre las más descargadas la Apple Store en su ámbito.

“Una mala pronunciación en inglés te puede poner en un aprieto. En español existen cinco vocales que se corresponden con cinco sonidos, en cambio en inglés para esas mismas letras existen 12 fonemas y ocho diptongos y aquí es donde surgen un montón de dudas, dice de la Concha. La idea resultó un éxito, “tanto los niños como los adultos lo entendieron rápidamente”. En Silicon Valley y en Cambridge El libro se puede adquirir directamente aquí:
