Digital immersion creates wave of change in language education SmartBlogs

The debate over the utility of explicitly learned knowledge in language learning has come full circle again thanks to a new crop of digital immersion platforms, including Duolingo, and Bliu Bliu. These platforms skip the grammar and go straight for the good stuff: target language content from the Internet.The world of language education has seen several waves of change over the past two decades, not least the abandonment of the audio-lingual method in favor of communicative language teaching and the advent of language software with interactive exercises and extensive stores of content, but a new generation of digital tools is now coming to the forefront to change the game yet again.

(part 1) Lectoescritura en español - ejercicios. Lesson Topic/Subject: Past subjunctive. It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted, and I’m feeling quite the urge to begin again!

Just about a year ago, I wrote an entry on “si clauses” and how I introduce them with my Spanish IV classes. I’m approaching that unit again, but, because I move further and further each year AWAY from my designated grammatical curriculum and more toward encouraging language and allowing the grammar to happen naturally, this unit is unfolding even more differently this year.

My Spanish IV students have not been introduced to either the conditional or the past subjunctive. In fact, I have all but abandoned the mechanical teaching of any grammar concept, and have just let things happen as they will.

Tianguis or market day in Ixcateopan de Cuauhtémoc, Guerrero A tianguis is an open air market or bazaar that is traditionally held on certain market days in a town or city neighborhood in Mexico and Central America.


This bazaar tradition has its roots well into the pre-Hispanic period and continues in many cases essentially unchanged into the present day.[1] The word tianguis comes from Nahuatl, the language of the Aztec Empire.[2] In rural areas, many traditional types of merchandise are still sold, such as agriculture supplies and products as well as modern, mass-produced goods. In the cities, mass-produced goods are mostly sold, but the organization of tianguis events is mostly the same.[2][3] There are also specialty tianguis events for holidays such as Christmas as well as for particular types of items such as cars or art.[4][5] History[edit]
