Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein's curator insight, October 7, 2013 3:05 PM

Let me start by saying that the image I selected is NOT one of those 7 tips!! Did it get you intrigued though?


Kevin provides a thorough understanding of the 7 traits amazing communicators do.


A key element to remember: "How you communicate will determine if you lead, command respect, earn trust and are well liked."


One thing that I learned throughout my career: Never assume. Communicate as often, and as clearly as possible, this will engage everyone within your organization and create a clear sense of purpose and goals.

 

What are your thoughts?

The growing U.S. Hispanic population is largely Catholic, just like much of Latin America, so many of them were particularly excited by the choice of an Argentinian, a latino, as the next pope.

“Flipping” the World Language Classroom | | Calico SpanishCalico Spanish

During our August 16th #LangChat, our participants discussed the prospect of “flipping” a world language classroom. Simply put, the “flipped” model has students learn new information – which would normally be presented during an in-class lecture – on their own at home, often through readings or videos. Class time is then spent practicing and enforcing the new material through discussion and activities.

Is the Spanish language white?

Is the Spanish language white? | Exploring Spanish Websites for Teachers | Scoop.it

"As the immigration reform bill hangs in the balance in Congress, it is worth considering the history -- rather, the long histories -- of some of the key issues it tackles. One of them is the status of the Spanish language in the United States and its vexed relationship to the category of whiteness, and to the majority white, English-speaking population."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 10, 2013 10:38 AM

I was initially startling to read this headline in the paper (yes I do occasionally read those when I can get my hands on one for free).  Being a Mexican-American Spanish speaker, I think I might be hyper-sensitive to this issue since the very concept of 'whiteness' has been used as justification for institutionalized discrimination.  Once I got over my immediate defensive reaction, I was able to see that it was a thoughful piece that explored the history of how we think about race in the United States; even if the concept of race is not genetically sound, it still plays a powerful role in how we think about peoples and places.

Is the Spanish language white? (??) Must confess. Would have never thought to ask this question.

This is a unique opportunity to taste fine and carefully selected Spanish wines, learn the 5 senses of wine tasting and meet great people. And all this in Spanish!!
Wine is a great example of the best of a culture; it’s a reflection of the connections between the land, the people and its traditions. It helps us understand the signs and wordsthat people use to communicate feelings, taste, smell, sight, touch… isn’t that what language is about?
