"Learning to speak another's language means taking one's place in the human community. It means reaching out to others across cultural and linguistic boundaries. Language is far more than a system to be explained. It is our most important link to the world around us..."

The "velcro theory" is a term that linguists use to suggest that when learning a new word or phrase it is best to "attach it" to something you already know. It makes it much easier to remember new things because something you already know has been internalized and easily recalled.

A good example of using the velcro theory to your advantage is thinking of a word or thing that reminds you of the new word or phrase. For example: armario means closet-so you may attach it to a word you already know: armoire because it is basically a free standing closet.

Communication is the essence of humanity. We all have an innate desire to communicate with each other. Even standing in an elevator, in the company of others, feels awkward if we aren't communicating. The minute someone breaks the ice with a simple "hello" or "nice weather" everyone feels more comfortable. The first time you speak to another person in their language and you see the smile come across their face; you will understand the magic of communication.

La Cultura
May 1st, International Worker's Day, is the real Labor Day for many Latin American countries. This day commemorates the historic struggle of working people throughout the world. This holiday began in the 1880s in the United States, with the fight for an eight-hour work day. Most Americans don't realize that May Day has its origins here in this country and it is as "American" as baseball and apple pie, and stemmed from the pre-Christian holiday of Beltane, a celebration of rebirth and fertility.

Workers in their thousands were drawn into the struggle for the shorter day. Skilled and unskilled, black and white, men and women, native and immigrant were all becoming involved. Working conditions were severe and it was quite common to work 10 to 16 hour days in unsafe conditions. Death and injury were commonplace at many work places. It wasn't until May 1, 1886 that organized labor was able to garner enough strength to declare the 8-hour workday.

"I am in real estate development, and I found out about KAMMS quite by accident while doing some web research. I travel a lot in my work and find myself with lots of airport and hotel time on my hands. I also happen to be a believer in lifelong learning and have always been interested in language. I took a little Spanish in high school almost 30 years ago and remember having great fun with it. I don't always feel like reading during my spare travel time, so 6 months ago or so, I decided to renew my interest in Spanish.

Besides my lifelong learning philosophy, the explosion of Spanish speaking people in this country did influence my decision. So has my desire to differentiate myself from the "competition" within my own company.
