Language Joke

Tips
Communication is Key!
When beginning to learn a new language, you need to focus on the primary goal: communication. The best way to do this is by learning the essential vocabulary and simple phrases that you can actually use immediately. This way, you just start talking, instead of doing verb conjugations in your head. Do you conjugate every verb before you speak in English? Of course not! It just comes naturally. The same thing will happen with your second language.

Additionally, the best way to make your learning "stick" is to use programs that consist of relevant vocabulary for your needs. If you're learning the words cat and dog, and what you really need is to talk to your patient at the hospital, you'll never use the language.

You want programs that give you the vocabulary you need for the reason you're learning!

Have you heard this one?
If you can speak three languages you're trilingual. If you can speak two languages you're bilingual. If you can speak only one language you're an American.
Wow, do we get a bum rap!


Culture Connection
How Many Americans Speak a Foreign Language? A few years ago the U.S. Senate Resolution designated 2005 the ``Year of Foreign Language Study'' because only 9% of U.S. citizens could speak another language proficiently. This is considerably lower than some countries in Europe where 29%-99% of their citizens are able speak another language. But we're making progress! According to a U.S. Census Bureau study, 47 million people or 18% of the population speaks more than one language. Also, the Modern Language Association, reported foreign language course enrollment to be at the highest level since 1960, and it continues to grow steadily.

Voice of our Customers & Friends
Bruce Karpf (Owner Retail Stores)

Question: I bought a Rosetta Stone program a long time ago. I tried it a couple times, but the kind of vocabulary they were teaching me, didn't apply to what I needed, so I got bored of it quickly. I own retail stores and I need to say things like: It costs this amount. Would you like a different color? Not things like: The weather today is warm. I also don't need to learn the grammar. I just want to learn what I need to say. What kind of program is best for me?

Answer:
The Spanish for Retail Business audio program will give you the words and phrases that you need to communicate with your customers today.

Each month we highlight a question or comment from our friends & customers. Please contact us if you would like to ask or respond to a question or would like to make your "voice" heard.

We want to hear from you!
