Taking a Break from Spanish, No More!

While some are still visiting this blog in the hope they will find the secrets of how NOT to make money, We still lack time to dedicate it and write especially for those our dearest readers. In the meantime, please head over this blog to learn about a series of posts on the info-product. Now back to our matters, we've received a visit to one of our blogs from a person who is dedicated to learning Spanish at all costs. The latest post is on badass materials on how to learn the Cervantes' language.
Well, is hearing English bad for you mental state? Is it bad reading a book while you’re on holiday? Don’t you watch TV in your free time? Is it weird? NO! So why would it be weird doing all those things in Spanish? It’s just another language which I (and you) happen to not speak fluently (yet). Therefore I try to avoid people who say crap (yes, again, CRAP!) like that. For me that’s quite hard, as my own parents say the same things and I’m spending 3 weeks of my summer with them… But, just keep saying to yourself: “I’m not a quitter! I WILL speak Spanish! I’m not very good at it now, but I will. And I will prove all those people wrong, because I know hearing, reading, seeing, living Spanish each and every is *good* for me.” [/brainwash mode]
So. there you go, are you a quitter or an endurer.

Decoding Skills

Some help along the way with a short vowel, long vowel, and consonant. Thanks to Mary Kay Linge who in her Reading Tutor points:
1. When one vowel appears between two consonants, the vowel usually says its short sound. 2. If there is an e at the end of a word, the vowel sound is long and the e is not pronounced -it's silent. 3. A vowel before a doubled consonant says its short sound. 4. When two vowels appear together, we usually hear only the first vowel, and it says its long sound(or, "When two vowels go walking, the first does the talking") 5. When a word has only one vowel and it appears at the end of the word, it usually says its long sound. 6. When c or g comes immediately before a,o or u we say its hard sound. 7. When c or g comes immediately before e, i, o or y we say its soft sound. However, there are many exceptions to every one of the rules, and learning them will only come with time and reading experience. No wonder so many struggle!

Ghotit - A SpellChecker to English Language Learners and ELL’s.

Have you ever heard of Ghotit? This is a super-spell-checker, ideal for very beginning English Language Learners and ELL’s with learning disabilities (as well as native speakers with challenges).

It has the ability to help sleuth-out words that people are trying to spell — in a much more in depth way than most regular spell-checkers.

Worth to give it a try.
