Learning a Foreign Language: The Dos and the Don'ts

Many students have a fear of learning a foreign language.  Instead of approaching acquiring a new tongue as an exciting challenge, many approach it with the question "Why do we have to learn this?"  Learning a foreign language can be a wonderful experience.  Here a few of my "Dos and Don'ts" when approaching foreign language learning.   DO... read more

Duolingo - Fun, effective resource for foreign language learners

I recently got a tip about this language-learning app from Duolingo and have been test-driving it on my iPhone for a few days in Spanish, a language I've never formally studied. And I like it, quite a bit in fact. As an ESL and German teacher of many years, and someone who has dabbled in a variety of other languages, I put a lot of thought and study into the process of learning language. Duolingo... read more

Experiencing German in the Real World

Learning German can be a daunting task, but sometimes it's a good idea to just dive in and experience the language outside of the traditional academic settings. So I'd like to list here a few websites where the German isn't so intimidating. Neon.de is a great website where one can even sign up and post their own blogs in German about life, love, science, education, music and movies. The sky's... read more

How I teach languages

When I teach languages I basically work on the student’s grammar and pronunciation. Vocabulary is also important, and I encourage my students to use the language as much as they can. This can take the passive form of reading, watching TV, or listening to the radio; or it can take the active form of speaking to others in the language they want to learn and writing in the language. This can take... read more

Get the most out of Tutoring

To get the most out of your tutoring experience, I find that in addition to bringing questions to the table, having a regular tutoring schedule greatly enhances learning and effectiveness. That way we can keep up with what you're having trouble with or excelling in and can pick up from week to week. It gives the regular feedback to students and also allows the tutor to hone in on areas and... read more

Howard's Blog-Testing and Preparation

Hello! Just a tip or two about test-taking skills. The first rule to remember is that it is only a test. Some measure aptitude SAT), some measure achievement (ACT). Neither are a reflection of who you are, and the end of the day, you will be the same person. So, be positive, regardless of the test. You own the test; the test does not own you. First, they are called standardized tests for... read more

Without the ability to communicate and understand a culture on its own terms, true access to that culture is barred. Why is this important? In a world where nations and people are ever more dependent upon on another to supply goods and services, solve political disputes, and ensure... read more
