That fuzzy feeling you get.
I'd prefer seeing them making it mandatory that we teach all those messican kids in English, first. If they want to learn a second language fine. I promise no other country would spend money to hire so dam many teachers to teach us in Russian, etc.
There is no evidence to be had in matters concerning your fault in naming things you don't understand to be stupid. I simply point them out. But I don't mind explaining.
Tiger is correct. It is stupid to imagine that self-proclaimed holy men actually know the will of God and it is stupid to imagine that ancient mythologies are actual facts.
Tiger is correct. It is not stupid to have an imagination. It is not stupid to theorize a supreme being in the absence of any evidence one way or the other.
Imagination is what distinguishes us from other animal. Having an imaginary friend is important to many millions of people. It has value. Failing to perceive this is stupid.
My dog chases its tail.
I fully contend that animals have imaginations.
Almost 100% of the Mexicans here want to learn English, some are just slower at it than others, mostly the elderly. The kids pick it up really quick, but they are going to need some Spanish-language instruction for the first year or two after they arrive. But with an intense English language instruction for a year follow by immersion in an English language curriculum, Most Hispanic kids would be able to continue in English to the benefit of all. I see no need for Spanish speaking schools that have no mission of getting kids into the English curriculum as soon as possible.
That's the way it worked when the Cajun People came here. They assimilated the language rapidly but hung on to their heritage language for a long time.
I think that Anglo kids living in the Southwest are doing themselves a disservice by not learning Spanish routinely. Much Spanish is going to be spoken there for a long time, just as it has for 300 years.
He's just having fun. Dogs have a lot of fun. Dogs dream. But we have no way of knowing if they can consciously imagine a non-real situation.
I think he thinks his tail is a bone. At least, that is what I choose to believe!
I dunno what you are talking about. Dude didnt say he was imagining, he said he believed. Try to pay attention.
Your first cause theory = fail
So true. "Franglais" was the beginning of the end. French used to be spoken a lot around here and I seldom hear it anymore. I can remember being a kid and my parents would speak in French so we wouldn't understand. Mom later realized and told us she regretted not teaching to us more.
As an English major I had to take 16 hours of foreign lang so took it in French. Can understand decent but not close to fluent. What you mentioned about immersion is THE way to get kids to learn.
