Esperanto & Spanish as Bridge Languages/como Idiomas Puentes?

I love languages, and have always found them easy to learn, particularly starting with Latin American Spanish, but I am told that many people find even this a difficult language to learn.  So, how about Esperanto as a very easy language to learn as a bridge to more difficult languages? / Adoro los idiomas, y siempre los he aprendido con facilidad, sobre todo empezando con el Español latino, pero me dicen que mucha gente no pueden aprender aun este idioma.  Entonces, por que no intenta con Esperanto, ya que es un idioma muy facil, como puente hacia los idiomas mas dificiles?

After all, language exposure does build empathy, and our world sorely needs more!

La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) P4e2: “Berlin…” and No Empathy Ruins Even A Criminal’s Day

      The less said about this guy, the better: again, Berlin, please stay dead, and stop singing!!  In the reverse order!

   This series really is an exercise in showing why empathy is so important to have a functioning society.  Even these criminals need empathy in order to make their group function, and it shows when they don’t have any.  Not even criminal groups can function when a sociopath or a psychopath is in charge, right, Berlin, Palermo, and Gandia???

 

Poor Antonyanzas!!

Seriously…

    Last  week  was  Part 4, ep.1: La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) P4e1: “Game Over…” and Kids Need Empathy!

and

Next week is:   ,

  “Somos la resistencia.”

   “We are the Resistance.”     Now, yes…

La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) P4e1: “Game Over…” and Kids Need Empathy!

      This is the first time anyone has asked to go to jail.   

    This lady has no empathy:  please let her not raise that child…

Plan Hamelîn…   cool!

No, Berlin, please stay dead, and stop singing!!  In the reverse order!

Poor Pamuk (so Marsella also speaks Turkish??)!!  What kind of kids would do that??

La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) P3e8: “Astray” & A Note on Believability

      This whole show is starting to go astray! 

Ok, unlike fiction, which allows a reader to suspend disbelief if sufficiently well written (which this scene was not, for me, anyway), non-fiction must be credible, backed by either good reasoning, or good evidence.  That is where life long education comes in.   Ok, back to this bad episode of language-learning (in Castillian):

   I do love the plans within a plan, but this Harry Potter moment is a bit much: hilarious, but not as if they’d believe it, on no other evidence.

   Now, this manipulation, yes, quite believable, unfortunately.

Ayy…

And hang on, here.  If the Professor’s father was supposed to have fought with the Partisans in Italy, hence teaching him the song Bella Ciao, then why would he have ended up having kids in Franco’s Spain?

  “Somos la resistencia.”   Ahora, Si…

   “We are the Resistance.”     Now, yes…

Thursday Stories -La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) p3e7: Traumatic “Vacacciones…”

   This is a good way, through story, to show the harm done to all of society when any person is tortured, especially by a government:

La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) P3e5: “Boom, Boom, Ciao” and Debt vs. Secrets

What is more important than debt, and debt forgiveness, to a government, especially, or  Its dirty secrets… ??

 

Gross, Palermo, gross!!

   Hmm, ok, yes, any government would do anything to keep those secrets secret.

And once again, Nairobi is right  PorNairo(where was her brain before, when she had her kid?)

Finally: a good reason to have a beautiful (if impossible) plan…

      Excellent, Profe!

La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) P3e4: “Dolphin” & More Debt !!

   I love the Bank Governor’s comment on the gold wrt the national debt (which, btw, is not exactly in the same situation as a household or personal debt…): “Multiplique lo que acabo de decir por diez.”  “Multiply what I just said by ten.”    

   Si, Bogota, puedes …  /  Yes, Bogotà, you can disappoint your DNA, if not renounce it…

Bien hecho, Nairobi!!  Gracias!!   /  Excellent, Nairobi, putting him in his place!!   Thank you,  PorNairo  on behalf of

all women!

And of course, Denver has won the prize for stupidity, this time!

Idiot!   What can Monica possibly see in this guy?

Side note: this episode, or the linked ep above, actually, reminds me that I never got around to posting my thesis bibliography related to the Bancor (Bancore?) (except this old book review, and this post that I’ll have to check on as it may review the same set of books…)

 

  “Somos la resistencia.”   De veras?  Ok, ahora, si!

   “We are the Resistance.”  Really?  Ok, now, yes!
