Spanish Sundays, ultima revista de Masot, y la Salud

(English) –Insisto que la salud tiene que ver con la integraciôn dentro de la comundad. Pensar, atreverse y amar. Absolutamente inspirador.  Este ultimo libro de la quintologia de Masot està tan buena como el Muy Buen (La Sombra del Templario) primer libro, y casi casi tanto como el Buenisimo segundo (el Laberinto: El Laberinto deContinue reading “Spanish Sundays, ultima revista de Masot, y la Salud”

Spanish Sundays, revista de un libro, y Salud Para Todos

La Llave De Oro (The Golden Key) and Language Learning for Adulthood

La Llave De Oro by Núria Masot (English below…) Simplemente maravilloso, este libro (aparte de que los Cataros no se llamaban eso a si mismos). Muertes extrañas, deseos de recuperarse la fe perdida, y una tranquilidad que es “sólo una apariencia de la que no hay que fiarse.” Y mejor, una chica que sabe defenderse.Continue reading “La Llave De Oro (The Golden Key) and Language Learning for Adulthood”

La Sombra del Templario (Shadow of the Templar) Núria Masot #1

Hace tiempo, leî éste libro y me encantô. Es un libro de mayoridad, asi que es màs o menos facil de leer, y corto. Pero una historia que me sorprendiô no tener nada que ver con la religiôn, sino màs con la amistad. Some time ago, I read this book and loved it. It’s aContinue reading “La Sombra del Templario (Shadow of the Templar) Núria Masot #1”

Spanish Sundays, El Maestro de Esgrima (The Fencing Master), and a sense of Honor as part of Adulting Education?

I finished what I found to be a very thought-provoking reading, El Maestro de Esgrima, in my on-going, perhaps cooling now, love affair with the books of author Arturo Pérez-Reverte.  I think I most loved two points in the book: about living and dying, and about childhood games. I was impressed that he actually worksContinue reading “Spanish Sundays, El Maestro de Esgrima (The Fencing Master), and a sense of Honor as part of Adulting Education?”

Spanish Sundays and legal/financial adult education

What, you ask, can a novel set in 1866 tell us about legal and financial on-going adult education today? That question probably goes double if you do not live in Spain, or even one of her former colonies. Yet I will insist that it can.  After building considerable empathy for the lady/love interest, the author Continue reading “Spanish Sundays and legal/financial adult education”

Spanish Sundays, ending Sukkot

We have finally passed Simchat Torah, unfortunately unable to dance with the Torah this year due to quarantine, but still about the restart the cycle of study. This year, with more Sefardic commentators, I plan (but do not promise) to look for. And as for modern Spanish: Here is where I am in my studyContinue reading “Spanish Sundays, ending Sukkot”

Language learning, local education, and lots of ideas

Spanish has always been my favorite language, especially after moving to the bilingual South West. Technically, I was hired for my experience in Unix which led to my MAT in mathematics, but on the ground, my love of learning languages proved to be more important in the classroom. As an adult education instructor at theContinue reading “Language learning, local education, and lots of ideas”
