Next Monday: Reading Aloud! & a Question for you all – Looking for Volunteers!

I’ve thought out a plan, to make sure you all know how you should be working on your Monologues at home and on your monthly Writing Assignment.

I’d like to ask you, dear Authors, can you volunteer to explain next Monday How to Work on your Mons (my video on the Speaking File page), and How to Work on your Writing Assignments (my video on the Writing File page)? Post your willingness, if so, and we can hold this conversation here through posting our comments, OK? Let’s organize it! Don’t be shy and volunteer! If we have more than 2 for each explanation, I can find other tasks for the following week, so it’d be all right! ❤

Next Monday we will read Ngozi’s book. Today we watched that same talk on TED.

Tomorrow I’ll post a follow-up listening and translation exercise in case you want to do it over the weekend. I’d like to know, if possible, how many of you are coming to class next Monday.

Sergio, if you’re reading this, can you send me an email? Thanks! 🙂

Lourdes, Lorena, I forgot to give you your Student’s Card!!! (Asociación Estudiantes)

  1. Hi everybody, sorry to have missed today’s class.
    I’d like to volunteer for “How to Work on your Writing Assignments”. I’ll try to summarise everything in 3-5 mins. talk, let’s see.
    Have a nice weekend!! 😉

  2. Honestly, this is a powerful piece that was a TED talk the introduction is wonderful especially with the use of what one can be while focusing on mostly personal experience. She covers the why of feminism and why everyone should embrace. This is perfect for a beginner who wants to uncover social injustice according to gender now-a-days. “Culture does not make people people make culture”. If it is true that the full humanity of women is not our culture then we can and must make it our culture. Indeed we must. Her voice is an invaluable voice of today and for the generations to come.

  3. ❤ Amazing insight, Lucía. The quote you chose is key, certainly! We need to build a culture which moves away from all the violence we have all endured. ❤

  4. By the way, I’d like to ask you, Lucía, considering Knitting Words has volunteered to explain how to work on our monthly assignments, would you volunteer to explain how to work on your monologues at home?

    If anyone reading this is interested, my idea was to have two different people explaining the same thing, or helping each other explain the topic in spontaneous collaboration, so please, feel free to volunteer.

    I also need volunteers to explain any of the other topics in the C1 Resource Pack.

    Btw, today I learned there is no money to publish the pack, or the story. So thank goodness I gave you all the pilot pdf version. Otherwise we would have been waiting forever.

    Have a lovely bilingual rest-of-the-week! ❤

  5. A thought about the implications of feminism in language. What do you think (everyone) about the issue, in Spanish, of writing (and saying) el/la, -os/-as when the word can be both, feminine or masculine? I have heard many opinions about that. Some people are in favour of using both and anothers aren’t. People who aren’t in favour state that feminism is not a question of vocabulary but of behaviour and thinking, and that you’re not feminist or more feminist by using both. I prefer using both and don’t really understand the resistance they have.
