Third Conversation

Partners Name: Theadora Farah

City y Country: Philadelphia, USA

 

 

I was having a hard time the last two weeks keeping the conversation going so that is my big goal for this week. I think I did that well.

 

 


Who you spoke with and why you chose that partner

I spoke with Thea a senior at SLA. She is one of my friends who is fluent in Spanish and I felt comfortable talking to.

What did you learn about them? What did you learn from them?

She is reading a new comic series, I learned that talking to someone you know vs someone on livemocha is easier to keep a conversation because you know the basics about them.

How did this interaction help you move towards achieving your personal goals?

I realized that my personal goals would be hard to gain through speaking with other people so I created a new goal of just gaining confidence and learning to keep a conversation flowing, which I was able to do.

What specifically did you do well according to your goals/expectations? What specifically to you need to improve on?

I did well though I was trying to do the “Do not use word reference challenge” and failed after only a little bit.

Conversations (Week 2) - Cheyenne Pagan

Screen Shot 2012-04-23 at 3.08.21 PM
Asking questions works and I'm most surprised by my ability to understand and read what they are saying. I assume it's easier to have a conversation with someone compared to reading something is because just like us even everyday talking we do not use complex sentences or words. 

I'm finding it difficult to get to my more complex questions because even though I'm writing in Spanish the person on the other end usually takes a bit to answer not including the minute or two it takes for me to come out with the question or response. 

It's not working as well as I'd hope. I really would like to ask some more difficult and interesting questions. I think to help this I could write the more difficult questions down in advanced so I'd have a template or a base to go off of. I think this will help me steer the conversation in the direction I want it to go and make the conversation move on faster so I can accomplish those things.

J.Pullins, Blog Post #2, The Films of Spain

Screen Shot 2012-05-02 at 8.30.39 AM
My conversations continued on the topic of the films of Spain. I received a new partner, because when I tried to get in touch with my previous partner, I was thoroughly ignored.

Here, you can see that not only do we keep the conversation in Spanish the entire time, but I also try to delve into my topic, which was the film culture. My partner, who's a college student in Spain, told me that he and his friends try to go to movie theaters as often as possible, as they use films and the culture as a momentary escape from reality.

I was highly intrigued by his statement, and I thought it was a highly interesting analysis.

blog #1

I talked to DeShawn M. about what she thinks of learning Spanish. She told me that when she was in middle school she tried to learn Spanish, but no one thought her right. This made her not want to learn Spanish at all. That is what we manly talked about.

Blog Post #2

  • Who did I speak with and why did I choose that person?
    I spoke with a girl named Laurasp from Spain because she's a girl and she's arund my age range. She was really nice and she helped me a lot.  
  • What did you learn about them? What did you learn from them?

    I learned that she lives in Spain and likes a lot of different types of music. 
  • How did this interaction help you move towards achieving your personal goal?

    This interaction helped me because I learned a lot more about Spanish culture. I also wanted to know about the daily life of a person who lives in another country. 
  • What specifically did you do well according to your goals/expectations?

    I improved on my vocabulary and grammar she helped me speak more fluently. 
  • What specifically do you need to improve on? (Quote specific things you said or did and what you would have done or said if you could do it again)

    I struggle with a lot of things that have to do with the tenses. Like i get the past and future tenses mixed up.

Bromas en Español

 I talked to a really funny guy named Siuldeluxe. He knew a great pick up line, and a pretty mean baby joke. But, nonetheless, it was pretty funny. I don't really know where he's from, but he speaks English pretty well. The more I talk to people about joking in Spanish, the more I realize how different it is. Even when I ask about jokes, I usually get what do you mean jokes. I guess sometimes it is a direct translation to an English joke, but sometimes it involved sarcasm which I will talk about in another blog post. By the way, pay no attention to how my name is Manna, I was banned for unknown reason from that site, so I had to use another person's account. I'm really considering using that google pick up line though.

Este el broma sobre que un bebe.

    I spoke with Géssyca in this conversation. I don't remember why I choose her, or she choose me.

  • What specifically did you do well according to your goals/expectations?


    Talking about music and past experiences

  • What specifically do you need to improve on? (Quote specific things you said or did and what you would have done or said if you could do it again)rc


    I didn't understand her at first but I quickly got over that.

Blog Two- Keeping the Convo

Pre-Conversation

Since I'm doing a chat instead of video, I think that the people answer quickly and politely.

I'm looking forward to meeting my goal for this chat: chatting without a dictionary.

I'm not really nervous about much, but the on thing is when I come into a stump. I want to be able to call upon all of my knowledge to prevent that.


Post-Conversation

Name: Emilio Gago

Country: Spain

Emilio is a great guy! We talked for a long time about things that we liked, and he really likes comics, and learning english. I learned that he is from Spain, and is also a student. I've learned a lot from him actually. He really helped with grammar errors, and even just better phrasing. I've learned some cool phrases too, one being:


"Eres el amo"- you are boss and another less school-appropriate :O.


I was really proud of my ability to recall all of what I know, and I was even complimented on my spanish abilities! Though, I must admit, it was much easier to think on my feet while I was just TYPING. But I still give myself credit because it was IM.  I'm very aware that I can conjugate pretty quickly when I'm typing/writing, but talking takes a few seconds more. For my next post, I want to have more questions ahead of time (just in case) and I also want to have a way to measure what I learn. Perhaps, I might just count the number of strategies I come up with. Or I may even make that my next blog post question- ask what are good strategies for conversations in Spanish.


More Slang (from Peru I believe)

Slang: Mamada.- significa Mentira

Choreado: Robado

Jodido:: Destrozado, arruinado, tambien significa " Super"

Ver La Tele!: Let's talk about TV

​This time around I want to talk about something specific. I feel comfortable now not relying on Word Reference. I use it a bit for some words for clarity, but I'm trying really hard. 

this time I wanted to know more about a conversational topic. I asked about TV! 

I spoke with a woman from Chile who was 20 named Mariana. She was easily the best conversationalist I've had on Shared Talk, it was great!

y questions for beforehand were:


¿Donde vives?
¿Cuantos años tienes?
¿Qué las programas miras?
¿Miras las programs de los estados unidos?
¿Donde estudias inglés?

I love Shared Talk so I feel confident about my conversation today. I think I'm better at conversation already.

Afterward: 


Proving my idea again, love Shared Talk. I had my best conversation yet. The girl requested me, funnily enough. She had a lot to say and was so easy to talk to. She corrected me a few times but did it very nicely. I love saying jajajaja instead of hahahah

Henninger Conversation, Post 2


In this conversation I tried to sound natural and keep the flow of a normal conversation going.  


•  What will be your topic of conversation be? 

I wanted to try to have a natural conversation and get to know my conversation partner. 


•  What are 5 questions related to your conversation goal that you can think of ahead of time to ask your partner?

- What do you like to do?

- What do you like to learn about?

- Where are you from?

- What do you want to do when you're older?

- What brought you to sharedtalk?


•  What are you looking forward to about this conversation? 

I think it will be great to get to know someone in a completely different place than me. I want to know exactly how different or similar we are. 


•  What are you nervous about? 

I hope I can keep the conversation moving without using a translator. 


Afterwards:
What did you learn about your partner?  

I learned a lot about my partner in this conversation. We had a very good conversation that progressed as one would between two native speakers of any language. I discovered that my partner Rafael(19, Brazil), very much enjoys learning other languages and has a great love for China. He's also part polish and likes learning about astrology. 


What did you learn from them?

Honestly, I didn't gain much from this conversation except morale. Before this I'd had many dud conversations but this was uplifting. I didn't learn much because he chose to write in english, while I wrote in spanish. In the end, it worked out because I could tell if he understood what I was writing by his responses and it was much easier to do in english. 


What did you learn about yourself?

I learned that in trying to be quick and consistent in my responses, I let some spelling and grammar mistakes get through. I was worried about responding quickly, because with other people when I'd take too long trying to make sure everything was correct, they would disconnect. 


What were you surprised about?

I was surprised he knew so many languages. Rafael knew english, spanish, portuguese, and chinese. 


What are you proud of?

I was proud that he seemed to have no trouble understanding what I was writing. He never mentioned any mistakes which made me happy. 


What follow-up questions do you have?

I just would have liked to know specifically where my spelling, grammar, or usage could have improved in our conversation. 


What will you improve on for next time?  How?

I will think about the context of things before I write them so I use the correct tense of words and such. I'll carefully read and take a moment to fully comprehend what I'm reading so I can answer accurately.

Week 2- Maintaining a Conversation

After learning the correct order of a sentence I practiced those skills by maintaing a conversation. This helped me know what and what not to say. It also helped me a lot where I knew how to keep a conversation going correctly.

Gender-Specific Articles

Some things are attached exclusively with either men or women. We may associate things like perfume with women and things like football with men. Though these objects carry these connotations, we do not specifically refer to gender when we bring them up in conversation. As far as our indefinite (“a” and “an”) and definite (“the”) articles are concerned, nouns do not belong to any specific gender. Consequently, an understandable point of confusion among Spanish students is the assignment of nouns to certain genders. As English speakers, we may not understand why gato is masculine and manzana is feminine. This becomes even more confusing with words that violate the “-o and -a” suffix rule of thumb for nouns. Phrases like La mano have time again been the source of frustration among those learning the language. While this may seem strange to native English-speakers, but as always seems to be the case, we’re the odd ones out.


Like most European languages, Spanish is derived from Latin, one of the oldest world languages. Latin words have always carried gender specific connotations, which were represented in evident parts of their language. In fact, most world languages follow a similar path. Many other languages even use a completely different word to address certain genders. English is unique in its gender neutral articles.



When learning Spanish, it is important to identify the gender that each noun corresponds to. However, misusing the gender-specific articles is not the most egregious grammar error one can make. In today’s world, it’s easy to understand what someone is trying to say, even if they mess up a minor part of the language. Especially in Spanish, the reasons that some nouns are attached to certain genders are not very clear. It’s interesting to think about the way that ancient people saw certain objects as being masculine or feminine, and how much that has changed over time. Even more intriguing is the way that this has apparently led to English, a language in which gender is not explicitly represented in the mechanics of conversation.

Proyecto de Conversación (Pt. 2)

Who did I speak to and why did I choose that person? 

I spoke to Miguel G. from Panama. I chose Miguel because he speaks and teaches, Spanish, English, and Italian. 
What did you learn about them? What did you learn from them? 

I learned that Miguel was a teacher and it was easier to speak to someone who knew English and Spanish because most people were too eager to speak English, they didn't want to assist me in learning Spanish. 

How did this interaction help you move towards achieving your personal goal?

Speaking to a person who could help and converse with me helped me because I started having more fluid conversations in Spanish. 

What specifically did you do well according to your goals/expectations? 

I was able to keep up with the questions being asked without taking an extended amount of time to respond. 

What specifically do you need to improve on? (Quote specific things you said or did and what you would have done or said if you could do it again) 

Something I need to improve on is asking more questions. I need to plan more questions to ask.

This person Charles was nice and willing to talk to me. Our conversation went well there was something to talk about and it was patience during the conversation, there were times when I did not respond as fast because I had to figure out a way to work my question or response.

Week 2 - Past and Future

    For my second week, the question that I am looking to answer is basic shortcuts to knowing when to use past and future tense. Some difficulties arose, as I was unable to find anyone on livemocha that would aid me, or even respond to me after I asked for help. The people who messaged me asking me for help suddenly stopped responding once I asked for help in return. Hrump. For this week, I instead chose a friend who is a native speaker as the alternative. It was difficult to find a time that would work for both of us, so we decided that texting would be the best alternative.

Before I did the conversation, I answered the prep questions. -

Cuál es tu tema de conversación?
    De tema de conversación es pasado y futuro tenso. Yo necesito un refrescar en tema.

How do you anticipate your partner will respond to these questions?
    They may not be able to understand them too well, as writing the language is not something     they're beyond proficient in.

What are you looking forward to about this conversation?
    Being able to talk to a close friend of mine in Español. (Not something I do often.)

What are you nervous about?
    I'm a bit concerned about my friend's written spanish, as he's much better at speaking it than     writing. It shouldn't be much of an issue though, as I should be able to understand it.

Art Project Quarter 4: Photography

Dalena Bui Photography

 

For this quarter I decided to choose to do my own project involving photography. Last quarter is when I choose to do photography. I was a bit rusty at first now I am more comfortable finding or taking pictures and editing them with photoshop. This whole process made me way more comfortable with photoshop and being able to edit pictures like the way I want and everybody else to see it. i am able to photoshop in a snap and not think twice about it and I really enjoy that feeling. My pictures have become sharper and cleaner and more precise.

Process...

For this quarter I decided to put down my camera for two reasons. One because I was to busy to go out and take pictures and second I have been on Tumblr a lot and I saw a lot of pictures I could edit. I am a Tumblr user and I loved the different pictures I seen on there and how people could capture such a beautiful moment. But I always saw something was missing in the picture and it could be better. Then I thought if I could take those pictures and make them… prettier? Then I decided that would be my project this quarter of taking art and making it better and most importantly my own. I really liked what I did because I am so much more comfortable with photoshop and making the pictures the way I want it to look.

Closing Out The Quarter...

Overall this whole year has been awesome. I let myself get creative and be myself in a artistic way I never thought I could. I tackled photography which I never thought I could do before.I got to do something I really enjoyed but never did because I didn't think I was good enough. Because of art I started to see things in a new perspective. I would like to thank Ms. Hull for letting medo this project and giving me the chance to try something new. I ended this last quarter strong. Hope you enjoy.

Starting a Conversation Politely

​This week I wanted to know if there were any special ways of staring a conversation politely verus the alternative, rudely.  When I say starting a conversation I don't just mean walking up to a random person and starting to say something completely random or interrupting someone else's conversation to start your's I mean starting a new one even if it is with a random person.

This week as I mentioned in my last post I was going to try and get down to my old school to talk to my old spanish teacher, Maestra Sandra.  Thankfully we both had an opening and I was able to then go back to my old school and interview her.

Questions

- ¿Cuales son algunos de las formas para empezar un conversación? (What are some ways of beginning a conversation?)

- ¿Usted tiene una forma favorita? (Do you have a favorite way?)

- ¿Hay mas formas a empezar una conversación con alguien cortésmente o mas formas que no son cortésmente? (Are there more ways of starting a conversation politely or impolitely?)


I learned a few things through this interview, one being that that it really doesn't seem like it's all that hard to start a conversation politely.  Another thing that I learned is that being polite when starting a conversation is extremely important in some place, more important than I thought.

One way to be polite while starting a conversation can be found here

Fail Attempt But Interesting Outcome

What does sports look like in Brazil?

¿Qué déportes important en Brazil? 

¿Qué deportes en muy grande en Brazil? 

¿Haces ves fútbol? 

¿Deportes es mucho importante en Brazil o arte es muy importante? 

¿Deportes en las escuela?


What are you looking forward to about this conversation?
I really want to learn about other countries and their views on sports!

What are you nervous about?
I am not really nervous, I tried to have this conversation before and it didn't work. I just hope I can find someone to talk to me on LiveMocha. 

Who did I speak with and why did I choose that person?
I spoke with a boy from Brazil. I figured this would be a good country to find out about. 
What did you learn about them? What did you learn from them?
I learned that he is very lazy. Now that I am done the conversation I understand that he likes to use a lot of slang and teen talk when talking. This is why I was so confused. 
How did this interaction help you move towards achieving your personal goal?
This didn't help me with my goal, like at all. But it did give me a new idea for my next round for a conversation. It allowed me to be exposed to slang in spanish, which is new to me. 
What specifically did you do well according to your goals/expectations?
I continued to ask questions about sports and followed it with follow up questions to try and understand and get some answers. 
What specifically do you need to improve on? (Quote specific things you said or did and what you would have done or said if you could do it again)
I need to pick better people. It always seems like the people that I wind up talking to all suck. lol. I would also try to understand things better, and ignore a word or two if it confuses me. Try to get the general feel for what my partner is saying instead.

Negative Space Reflection:

Negative Space Reflection:

A. What is negative space (explain this concept to a fourth grader that has never heard of it) - Negative space is showing the space between all different figures in reality.

B. Explain how you found negative space in 1. your cut out?, 2. in your stool drawing? I find negative by looking at the actual object.

C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space? It can be helpful because it shows what they need to add or decrease.

D. Does seeing in negative space enhance drawings, why or why not? Not to me it makes things unclear and not able to understand the drawings.

That Random Epic Reflection (TRER)-Sabian Rosales

Negative Space is a way to draw by using two colors and one picture. You cut out the picture and put one piece to one side then the piece under that piece to the other side and you continue that until it looks close to the drawing below.
I find negative space in my cut-out by finding the alternating colors and picturing the drawing to a higher level.
The stool drawing (which I did not complete because of time issues) was black and white, opposites. Opposites create a cool effect between the two colors and make it pop.
Seeing in negative space gives you a different perspective of the drawing that you are making and allows you to think of what to add or take.
I think negative space enhances simple drawings but creates a problem in complex drawings.
