SSL- Name Materials as Possible – 7.Aug.2016,Sunday

—– This is my Spanish as a Second Language study for Sunday.  It’s been many months since I studied my SSL flashcards.  But today I studied my flashcard sub-set of three dozen Spanish nouns on building materials.  I re-started with thirty minutes.  I will see how many I can recall.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

  • acero, cero, acrillica,
  • plata, oro, hierro, laton, bronce
  • pana, paya, vela vaquiero
  • cemento, horigono

—– And my thanks goes to Dr Danny Evans of QUE HORA ES and also Christina Sun of NAI HO, even though she teaches Mandarin instead.  My interest in SSL someday is going to get me a house, because I either will be bilingual or because I have interest in Spanish bilingual fluency.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

—– I don’t have the advantage of a child’s curiosity, so I learn a bit slower.  In my late 50s, give me a break on time.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

QUE HORA ES? – Trabajando, comiendo,haciendo, escribiendo

—– QUE HORA ES, aired by the AIB Network 4.Aug.2016 Thursday, taught

  • Estoy trabanjando.
  • Estoy comiendo.
  • Que esta haciendo?
  • Estoy escribiendo.

—– It was much fun to listen and learn from Dr Danny Evans.  I always double the speed of the DVR playback, because he uses a lot of English to clarify the Spanish as a Second Language.  And I was so comfortable with his television class, but I wasn’t learning as much as I should.  So I doubled the playback speed, with the sound off, so I can learn the entire lesson.  And most of his Spanish course is on a chalk board, and dry-erase marker board anyway.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

—– My past English professor, who also taught composition, always said we should write only one subject, out of the three that is in our brains, for clarity.  If we cover three subjects, it will confuse the reader who won’t remember anything.  But when writers expand on only one topic, the reader will at least remember that one topic, even if the universe of topics is incomplete on the broader subject at hand.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

—– For that reason, QUE HORA ES entertained me, captivated my attention and educated me well on the words TRABAJANDO, COMIENDO, HACIENDO AND ESCRIBIENDO.

—– And if you want to learn Spanish as a Second Language, I recommend you do a channel search for the AIB Network, for his QUE HORA ES show.  [Donate online to KeepYourHouse]

Tutorial: SSL-Que Hora Es vs Jason Statham

—– The Spanish as a Second Language tutorial, was on future tense.  It was Dr Danny Evans, broadcasted on the AIB Network.  I listen to it while I’m eating my dinner, and while I cool down from running errands on my motorcycle.  I hopped in and out of Spanish courses at Georgia State University.  And I hung around language labs at both Georgia State University and Kennesaw State University.
—– While I did light assembly work, on a co-pack plant for JVC, I worked next to Hispanics and Latinos.  Frequently the female workers jokingly tried to partner me with their female friends.  I always turned them down, although I quite enjoy the microkini trend that the Mexican beaches, Central American beaches and South American beaches entertain.  And I quite appreciate their worship of cosmetic surgery, since it increases the natural beauty that all men seek for motivation to do their otherwise mundane jobs.  But I digress wildly at that thought.
—– The language labs were all based on cassette learning.  And I flattered myself that I could have mega-fluency as a James Bond polyglot.  My choices from the cookie jar were Spanish, Chinese Mandarin, Indian Hindi and Japanese.
—– But after my student loan money ran out, I ceased my language minor.
—– I really didn’t need any minor, because I was in the Computer Science department of the Arts & Sciences school, but I wanted a language minor anyway.  The narcissistic side of me said that I could finally learn anything the professors put in front of me, and said to me that time and money was limitless.
—– Well time has a limit.  And money has a limit. Prayers are certainly welcome, since I return them in similar attention and intensity.
—– Although I enjoy the puzzles of language, I am more into second languages for the money and for the love than any other reason.  My future family will gravitate to me if I have money through the second language skill, at which time compliance will be easy to get.  I mean I want to be honest with my motivations and be better than my competition.  Then they will only need me, and not need anybody else.
—– But I’m still pursuing my hobby of listening to Spanish as a Second Language, with Que Hora Es through Dr Danny Evans, on the AIB Network.  Of course I record it for later viewing and re-viewing. If you find anything in this kitchen sink, that you like, take it as seconds for leftovers for tomorrow’s meal; I worked hard on it.
—– The competition is high, but not against my peers or my roommates or even my colleagues in the workplace.  The competition is high since Dr Danny competes against Nicholas Cage, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Tom Hanks, Christina Baranski, Sharon Stone, Scarlett Johansson and the other blockbuster movies available as endless reruns.  If the stars win against my attention short-term, I lose long-term.
—– But I did at least watch the Que Hora Es show tonight.  And as background information, the microkini will always capture my attention more than Mr. Jason Statham.
