Eventually, i would love to be fluent or at least intermediate in the language to be able to communicate well with my future Spanish-speaking ELL students when I become a teacher. From this class, i hope to build a strong foundation of the basics.
Introduction: Reading is beneficial in acquiring language, according to Harmer, “ The more you read, the better you get at it” (Harmmer, 2007). This means reading is a significant skill that students should practice in daily life because it will support them in being more intelligent by having a lot of input, improve their language and construct their vocabulary as well as it will help them in their careers (Harmmer, 2007). Teachers should consider reading as an important skill and try to scaffold students in simple and fun way to make students feel interested to learn. In this paper I am going to analyze my MST`s reading lesson that I observed during my teaching practice to see what worked with her students and what did not work as well
Dear future student of Dr. Papadopoulos’s EN101 course, it is my utmost pleasure to be writing this letter to you in order to better prepare you for this English course. College Composition helps you better understand how to truly write an essay, and the many “ingredients” it takes to put all together and form one. This skill will not only help you succeed in English courses to come, but it will help you form better essays throughout your college career. I will be explaining the process of creating and structuring an argumentative essay. An argument is comprised of a statement and proof, a belief and reasons, or a point of view and evidence.
The AATSP (The American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese), not only supports the role of teachers, but also collaborates with professionals and researchers internationally to delve deeper into linguistic knowledge of all forms. After having the opportunity to absorb all of the insight Ying Jin had to offer, (ACTFL’s National Language Teacher of the Year) I found myself researching more about this organization’s role in foreign language education and in particular, how to emulate practices, tactics and creative intricacies applied in Jin’s classroom. The parallel guiding principles that sparked my interest to become a member of both these organizations is their dedication to advocating research in various bilingual professionals and the drive to enhance the quality of language (in learning and
1. Introduction Content, culture and context play a vital role in English language teaching, especially in countries where English is a foreign language. Thus, in order to bring some cultural knowledge and expose learners to more natural setting of English in use, teachers rely on TV shows such as Friends, Full house, The nanny, etc. which are popular American sitcoms from the 90’s. These kind of shows offer English teachers authentic materials to bring their learners into contact with language in context which can help them to identify various functions of a single utterance.
The outcomes of the research will be intended to increase understanding about bilingualism and used as an aid to parents to choose suitable school for the children and to students to decide which university to go to study. The research includes several different methods. This enable the data and information accumulated by one technique to be checked and affirmed by an alternate. For the secondary sources, I will search books, journals or any type of it from the internet. I will compare the different articles and analyze the arguments.

I plan on transferring to San Diego State once I have enough credits to do so. Until then, De Anza college will help me receive the help I need to get there. In English 1A and beyond, I plan to receive feedback on my writing and fix any errors I have. The skills and lessons I learned in EWRT 211 will also help me in English 1A as I have a clear understand of what instructors look for. I will never forget to always have fun with my writing and to express my ideas.
I search for ways in which I can bring to my family not only knowledge of other lands where people look, live, sound and eat differently but also ways in which I can help them communicate with people from around the world. I have done my own internet searches and conducted my own personal research about which language is the best choice for my family to begin learning in addition to English. It is obvious that learning Spanish as a second language here in the United States is the most practical choice if we want to use our new found language on a daily basis. Experts suggest using the new target language daily if you hope to become bilingual, and I know we will use it every day in our community that has experienced marked Latino growth. The most recent research suggests that more than 350 million people world wide speak Spanish.
Children whose experiences are devalued or unrecognized become alienated and disengaged from the learning process.” I am teaching an AP Spanish Culture and Language course at Piedra Vista High School.

This system is important because it helps the students who belong to minorities like the Latino community. Bilingual education helps them to improve their English and also to immerse in the culture. Also, this system can benefit the native speakers giving them the opportunity to learn another language.
With this experience, it had allowed me the space to utilize the skills that I have to acquire through my educational program while attending QCC. I have found this experience to be rewarding which gave me great insight into my future of being a Sign Language Interpreter. By me working side by side with members of the Deaf community, it has shown me …. And with this I have a better understanding what it means to be a sign language interpreter. Therefore, my hope is that by me being accepted to your program I can further learn more about the community and the different ways in which I can be helpful towards members within the Deaf community.
Cultural Influence Students who have a different background are a benefit to any classroom. They offer diversity and interesting perspectives. According to an article published on the Future of Working website, undocumented immigrants offer these benefits to any community (2015). Their influence would be greatly sought in a Spanish class taught in the U.S. Teachers can see these immigrants as resources and learn from these students.
One reason why I think that this career would be good for me is because I like helping kids. I’ve always loved being able to interact and help children. Plus, if I get into a foreign language class like my goal, then I’ll be able to talk to kids that don’t speak English. All I’ll have to do to be able to do that, would be turning everything in in ELA, do well on projects, and make sure that I get better grades so Ms. Miller can refer me for a Spanish
