Simplemente me siento mal que de no haber participado en todas las discusiones que se ven aquí en este grupo. No es que no me importan, es que solamente hay un límite de tiempo para tratar de hacer todo. La verdad es que si he tratado de ir a los varios sitios para ver si puedo utilizarlos en mis clases de español. Lo que no he hecho es añadir comentario después de ir al sitio. No es decir que espero que todos empiecen a poner comentarios en todas las discusiones. Lo que si quiero es que las personas en este grupo que han sugerido recursos para los demás, que sepan que les agradezco muchísimo por haber hecho el trabajo de investigar y luego compartir estos sitios. En muy poco tiempo este grupo ha crecido de siete a veintisiete. Creo que cada persona en el grupo es recurso. Mi padre me dijo una vez, “Si alguien dice que lo sabe todo, puedes estar seguro que no sabe mucho”. Por esa razón, creo que es importante de que a vez en cuando saber que es lo piensan (de la información que se encuentra en estas discusiones). He trabajado más de 32 años como maestro. Gracias a Dios, todavía me interesa aprender como es que puedo ayudar a mis estudiantes. Es posible que no me siente así mañana, pero nada mas vivimos día a día. No debemos de pedir mas.

 

Quite simply, I feel badly about not participating in these group discussions. It isn’t that they aren’t important; it’s that right now there is a limited amount of time to try to do everything. The truth is that I have tried to go to the various sites to see if I can use them in my Spanish classes. What I haven’t done is to add comments in the discussions. That doesn’t mean that I expect everyone to start adding comments to all of the discussions. What I do want is for those who have done the research and shared these sites, to know that I appreciate their work and time. In a very short while, this group has grown from 7 to 27. I believe that everyone in this group is a resource. My father once told me, “If you hear someone say that they know it all, you can be sure they don’t know very much”. This is why it is important, every now and then; to know what others in this group think (about the discussions) I have been teaching for over 32 years. Thank God I’m still interested in learning how to help my students. Maybe tomorrow I won’t feel that way, but this is all day to day anyway. We shouldn't ask for more.

    Hola.

    Yo estoy casi en la misma situacion. Ahora estoy de maestro en cinco escuelas diferentes y casi no tengo tiempo de hacer cosas para poder evolucionar como maestro, pero he de decir que toda la informacion aqui mostrada, con la gran cantidad y calidad de enlaces para paginas ha sido y esta siendo de grandisima ayuda. Se lo agradezco muchisimo. Espero, sin embargo, que en poco tiempo pueda ser mas un participe activo.

    Siento mucho la falta de acentos en mi mensaje, pero esta computadora es un desastre.

    Un fuerte saludo.

    Hi Rpalafox,

     

    I know a way you could participate in some discussions in our group on Verizon Thinkfinity. Just pick and choose the ones you receive that you want to discuss with others. You don't need to comment in every discussion.

      I think we're in agreement on this. What I was trying to convey to others in this group is that I really appreciate their work and willingness to share. And, I didn't want my lack of response to their questions  mean that the question wasn't important. Kinda like when someone in the conversation is talking but the other person isn't listening. I too look at other discussions and comment when I can, but this group is "special" to me because Spanish is where I live. My entire day is about Spanish and to have wonderful resources like these at my disposal, what can I say except thanks to those who took time to share. Whether everyone else contributes (or not) to the conversation isn't the point. It's important to me that others (in this group) know I care about what they say/share, it's the least I can do.

        I appreciate both of your sentiments! There often aren't enough hours in the day to make all the connections we'd like—but it's great to articulate and express general thanks for the great value they add.

         

        I read/speak very little Spanish, but I have to say I was so pleased when members began to hold bilingual conversations here. Luisanna, the group owner, has devoted so much thought and work and energy to this group! I look forward to the conversations and resources to come.
