Memory

And as promised, here comes the first of an ongoing process of video lessons. I guess this can be even a bit better for some as it is easier to get the info from a video. I hope you enjoy how to work on memory matters.

A radical change!

Hi everyone!

I really must apologize for the lack of posts and I feel like giving you the reasons for all that and what I am to do next.

When I started http://www.thinking-languages.com I was really excited about sharing a bit of what I do and help people learning languages as much as I could. I am happy with the feedback and the followers I got, which were not too many, but highly recommended people.

It’s been a while now, and I keep struggling to keep a diary here as I am in far too many things. Dealing with my school website is something keeping me busy online and I had to decide for something. Lots of things came accross my mind, and I finally decided what to do.

I sometimes publish former articles from this blog in http://www.lingua-franca.es, and I will continue doing that so my students can find them easily. What I am doing with this one will be to publish only videos from now on, so it will become a video blog. It seems I’ve grown a sympathy for the camara and I can keep you up to date easier.

Thank you all, and please, let’s keep thinking!

The French Connection – Boosting your mind for languages

A trip of nearly 5,000 km across Europe has got me quite busy lately… and ┬áthat’s why you haven’t heard too much from me. I remember my last holiday, and how I left plenty of scheduled posts for the blog, something that hasn’t happened this time as I really needed to get some time off, and so I did. We all deserver that from time to time.

millenials

Do you know who are the millenials? I didn’t know it a while ago until someone recommended me the video below.

The cool thing is that I am a millenial, a very old one but I’ve been excluded from the X generation, that what happens when you’re born in the edges of what sociologists call a generation.

I really am happy to belong to millenials as, according to the video, they seem nicer :) and a bit more open minded.

If there’s something that really makes me proud is how millenials have learnt and are learning new languages, which is something in which the X generation, as far as I know, was not willing to do. Millenials work abroad, love travelling and getting in touch with other cultures, we’re the internet kids after all.

And no matter how old you are, if we are living this moment, we better go with the flow.

P.S.: Sorry as I am not updating this too much, and definitely not as often as I used to… changes in my life, my career and perspectives. Be back on track soon!
