You want to learn Spanish / improve your Spanish this year?

Here are 5 great ideas from chac-mool.com that will help you to realize your resolutions for 2017:

1. Never forget why
It may sound trivial, but without a good reason to learn a new language, it’s harder to stay motivated in the long term. Whatever the reason is why you want to learn a language, once you’ve decided this, it is important to stick with it: “Okay, I want to learn this language and that’s why I’m going to do as much as possible in that language, with this language and for this language.”

2. Integrating language learning in your daily life
Learning a new language is actually quite simple! You just need to connect it to things you are doing anyways; in that way learning is also much more enjoyable. Listen to Spanish music, watch movies, TV and series in Spanish – you’ll be amazed how quickly new words and expressions become second nature to you!

3. Associate
Sticking vocabulary post-its to objects in your house helps a great deal! But do not limit it to merely labeling the objects, also connect them with associations. For example, do not only write down the word for “light switch” in the foreign language, but as well the words for “turn off”, “turn on”, “bright” and “dark”. When you read the words on a daily basis, you will automatically remember them.

4. Less is more – but regularly
Even if you have a lot to do: Make it a habit to learn every day as much as you can – and that really means: as you can. You have half an hour a day? Super! Then learn for half an hour. Today it’s just 15 minutes? That’s still better than excessively cramming a whole weekend and then doing nothing for two months. It is important that you learn on a regular basis and that you plan in learning units into your busy schedule, even though they may be short.

5. Be childish
Try to learn like a child. New scientific studies could not detect any direct link between age and learning ability. So, in order to learn as quickly as a child, childlike behaviors help. For example: don’t feel embarrassed to speak, enjoy a playfully access to the new language and do not be afraid to make mistakes. The key to success in language learning is to admit that you do not know everything, and to accept that that’s absolutely fine.

The History of the Spanish Language

Everyone is buzzing about the growing importance of the Spanish language in the globalized world. It’s easy to see why: Spanish is an official language in 21 countries, its prevalence in the US means some say the US is actually a bilingual country, and by 2050, 900 million people will speak Spanish. That’s 10% of the world’s population, number crunchers.

It’s impressive progress for a language that began life in the dying embers of the Roman empire. Like French and Italian, Spanish is a Romance language, derived from Latin. But a lesser-known facts about Spanish’s pedigree is that Arabic also exerted a heavy influence on the language- 4,000 words worth, in fact.

Later, a certain C. Columbus took the language across the Atlantic. Spanish borrowed liberally from the native languages of South America, while each South American country gave Castilian Spanish their own flavor.

Phew! The more than 2,000 years of Spanish language history is a lot to take in. That’s why we’ve neatly condensed it into a whirlwind, globetrotting guide of less than 3 minutes. Whether you want to more about the language you already speak, or you want to find out more before joining the millions of people already learning Spanish, sit back and enjoy the video!

An overview of research on concentration suggests that regularly and kids who learn another language in an immersion environment are inclined to show higher levels of competence in that language learn to talk it and reading it and writing it successfully.
This translates to adult learning. A recent study shown that adults who learned a language within an immersion environment learn faster than those who learned the new language in a conventional classroom environment like native speakers.

México es uno de los países más ricos de cultura en el mundo, más de treinta estados han visto como se escriben capítulos memorables en la vida de los Morelenses. Debido a la proximidad con la capital,  el estado de Morelos, se ha relacionado siempre con los acontecimientos que han marcado el curso de la historia. De grandes culturas como los Olmecas en el siglo III d.C., hasta los grandes villanos en el país, como Hernán Cortés en la época de la conquista.

En 1522 Hernán Cortés comenzó con la evangelización del territorio que ahora es Morelos, a partir de Cuernavaca, lugar donde se fundó la iglesia y eligió como lugar para vivir, la construcción de su residencia, ahora se conoce como el Palacio de Cortés.

Over almost 50 years, research on language immersion instruction has heralded advantages including cognitive abilities, and academic achievement, language and literacy development in several languages. This research also shows some of the challenges that accompany the concentration model, with its multilayered program of literacy, language and intercultural skills development during subject matter. This chapter summarizes key findings for both challenges and edges.

The problem inquired most frequently in research on language immersion instruction is pupils’ ability to perform on standardized tests. This question emerges again and again in direct response to stakeholder concerns that growth of a language besides #English not endanger education aims that are fundamental, high amounts of written and oral communication abilities in English, and grade-appropriate academic accomplishment. The research answer to the question is consistent and longstanding. English expert concentration pupils are effective at attaining at the same time as, and sometimes non -immersion peers on standardized measures of reading and mathematics.

This finding applies to pupils from a variety of socioeconomic and ethnic heritages, along with varied cognitive and linguistic capabilities. Furthermore, academic achievement on tests administered in English happens regardless of the second language being learned. To put it differently, whether learning through alphabetic languages (Spanish, Hawaiian, French, etc.) or character-based languages (Mandarin, Japanese, Cantonese), English-proficient pupils will keep pace academically with peers in English-medium programs.

It is necessary to recognize that early studies performed in one way complete immersion programs, where English may not be added until scores 2–5, reveal signs of a temporary slowdown in particular English language skills like spelling, capitalization, punctuation, word knowledge, and word discrimination. That said, these studies also find that within a couple of years after teaching in English language arts starts, the interim vanishes. There were no long term negative repercussions to literacy development or English language.

Does this same finding apply to pupils in two way immersion settings whose first language is other than English? Before fifteen to twenty years, US researchers found that English students’ academic accomplishment also reached the programs’ aims. By the upper elementary, or in some instances early secondary grades, English students from different ethnicities, language backgrounds, socioeconomic levels, and developmental profiles perform at least as well as same qualifications peers being schooled in English just. Most English students in several schools come from Latino families whose home language is Spanish. As an ethnic minority in America, Latinos are both the fastest-growing student population and the group with the greatest rate of school failure. Research in Spanish/English some schools state that there is a higher grade average and increased enrollment percentage in advanced education because of this student group, compared to Latino peers participating in other kinds of educational programs including transitional bilingual instruction and various kinds of English-medium instruction.

Although a large proportion of studies have been performed in Spanish/English settings, Dr. Kathryn Lindholm-Leary in a recent study showed results from two Chinese/English programs. Some of the students in classes 4–8 whose home language was Chinese examined at or above their grade level and the same as or well above peers with similar demographic characteristics.

We can conclude that immersion programs bring excelent benefits when learning Spanish or any other second language.
