To me English is very interesting subjetc,like I said in another time, I think that learn differet lenguages gives you the posibilty to thinks in differtes way, To learn a lenguage you learn a different culture and the way to do it. I think that is very interesting to me and to my profession because I have to undestand, to comprehend several human behaviors, and try to see what about of that different behaviors have in common. An example of this is the humor. For me is very dfficult to say a chilean joke in english to foreing people. And when you read or see english joke you think that are very inocent, jajajaja, maybe our humor is more ironical or maybe I can`t see the ironical of foreing jokes or maybe we use to much chilean expression ( I remember a friend that in an English post he wanted to say that he like to dance to the floor "bailar hasta el suelo", but that expression don`t have sense in english, and for that isn`t funny)
I think to learn English in a class room is very difficult. Because you don`t have easily the posibility to discover the world., to interpreted it. I am trying to learn german right now - I said trying because is a very difficult lenguage for me-. I said this because I have a very interesting experience with a german friend. We went to a market and in it she thaught me a lot of thinks. We started to easy thinks like, "How do you say apple in german?" -Apfel- "And bananas?" -Banane-, lately I started to ask for colors "Welche Farbe ist das?, and I started to ask for expression, for thinks that you can by in Chile that you can`t buy in German and the another way. I think that day I learn a lot of german, because somehow the german lenguage approach to me, or come to me And always you have to approach to the lenguague.
Outside the English class, I use a lot of english to follow Obama's elecction. To follow the debates and the news about the elections. I don`t like the simultaneous translation. And Obama's Speeches are the most epical speeches that I never heard in a chilean politician
I think that I have a to improve a lot of my english. I need to learn write in academic english, to write papers, and to do I have to learn more complex vocabulary. I have to start to read more english papers too. In some ocasion I do, but not all the time. . I have to accustomed to do that.
