Would be great for Spanish for native speakers or upper level spanish classes and Social Science to do an ITU. Students research factories and tragedies that have happened due to working conditions.

Catherine McGee's comment, November 9, 2012 7:06 PM
Este artículo me recuerde de las razones yo decidí a estudiar español para mi carrera en la universidad. Vivimos en un país en que no existe un idioma oficial y donde hay muchas culturas diferentes entonces no debemos asociar los Estados Unidos con solamente un idioma. Los hablantes bilingües que yo conozco nunca han tenido problemas a encontrar trabajo. A aprender un idioma diferente puede ser beneficioso a cualquier persona, la verdad es que no existe una razón negativa a ser bilingüe. Nuestro país y mundo siempre esta mezclando y debemos dar la bienvenida a otras culturas y lenguas. Y también es muy interesante que algunos estudios muestran que el aprendizaje de un idioma puede ayudar nuestra salud.
jacquelyn Ruiz's comment, November 9, 2012 9:12 PM
Me gusto este articulo por que dio razones nuevas que anuque son obvio nunca habia pensado. No sabia que se aprendias dos idiomas se te hiciera mas facil aprender otro idioma. Tambien se me hace interesante que ser bilingue te hace mas intelegente y que el espanol va ser el segundo idioma mas hablado en el futuro. Ya sabia que ser bilingue te puede ayudar consiguir trabajo por la variedad pero me hace ser mejor segir oyendo que ser bilingue te puede ayudar.
Isela Ramirez's comment, November 16, 2012 4:44 PM
Este artículo es interesante porque tiene diferentes puntos de vista acerca del bilingüismo. Unas personas están a favor del bilingüismo pero otras personas piensan que si no se enseñara el español no estarían teniendo esta discusión en el blog. También, el artículo menciona que el bilingüismo es importante porque ayuda a las personas en su desarrollo mental. Por ejemplo, dicen que ser bilingüe puede a reducir la demencia de las personas cuando llegan a una edad avanzada. Una de las razones por la cual los estadounidenses tienen que aprender español es porque es la segunda lengua más hablada en los Estados Unidos. Se me hizo muy chistoso que en uno de los comentarios escribieron que no querían que los estadounidenses aprendieran español porque luego no van a tener más beneficios porque va a ver muchas personas bilingües.

Two books to practice animals in Spanish » Spanish Playground

Two books to practice animals in Spanish » Spanish Playground | story based learning | Scoop.it

Picture books in Spanish will often have vocabulary that your child does not know. Even simple books, about familiar topics, will have words and verb forms that are new. That is great! That is how children learn languages. The illustrations, context of the story, and words she does know will clarify the meaning of new vocabulary.

We should be asking our kids to describe people and things they can relate to, not boring outdated vocabulary. Instead of asking them to describe "Juan" in the textbook, ask them to describe the characters from one-direction.
