15 encouraging phrases a Spanish speaker like me would love for you to learn.

I meet a lot of people at work, on the street, and in my community who want to make an effort by speaking my native language. It's great. But often, they default to the same handful of phrases: "Hola," "Buenos días," maybe a "Como está" once in a while. I was chatting with a co-worker recently about my work as a writer. I could tell he was very proud of me. Let me explain: "Si se puede" means "yes we can," and it's a renowned cry of Latino pride made famous by American labor leader and social activist Cesar Chávez way before President Barack Obama made it a slogan. But the phrase is so generic now that it has almost taken away the true meaning of his pride.

Must-have: a separate profile for your kids on Netflix

Perhaps you and your family use the same profile on Netflix. You watch The OA while your son devours Pokémon and your daughter tunes into Peppa Pig. I didn't know this but, apparently, having a common profile is not such a good idea. It's better to give your kids an individual profile which they can use freely. Why?

The words are learnt in a multi-layered way through seeing a vivid image, hearing and repeating the sound of the word and doing an accompanying gesture. The three strands of this VAK approach strengthen memory, making the knowledge robust and secure enough for easy retrieval at any time, and more importantly, for application to new words in new contexts. Here is a fuller explanation of the above and a short film of the approach we use. Phonics resources. The Natural Order of Language Acquisition. I'm always amazed when I talk to people about language learning, how much pressure we needlessly place on ourselves.

The Natural Order of Language Acquisition

Ego, paradigm, we just don't like to wait... call it whatever you want - when it comes to language, people seldom claim that learning a foreign language is easy! Words like "Fast" and "Easy" are the by words of language schools who are trying to convince you that their program is better than the rest. Spanish icons background design Vector.
