Constantly, we hear that going out and spending some time outside is good for our body and our mind. It’s been known that the Taj Mahal was built to immortalize Shah Jahan’s wife but also, this beautiful garden serves as a sanctuary to escape from the stress of life. And it is not just the Taj Mahal, but in many books, it has been said that nature goes with the gift of freedom. As plants, the human body needs the chemical properties of the sun to function well, but not only that, being outside in direct contact with the sunlight could help improve your mood.

Times change. We use smartphones, computers and most of the written information we share is digital. But there are certain objects that no matter how much time passes, they stay the same. One of those objects is the fountain pen. I started using one in March of last year, I never imagined how much I would enjoy using it...

This has been my favorite topic of interest over the last couple of years! Have you ever heard about it? It’s a pretty interesting idea. Let’s start with this question; How often do you find yourself, I don’t know let’s say taking a shower and thinking about something like the meeting that’s coming up that day, what you are going to cook for dinner that night, what you said yesterday, and on and on we could go? Scientists have shown that we often spend more than 47% of our time not in the here and now. Pretty incredible isn’t it? In 2015 I attended an amazing conference in San Francisco, called Wisdom 2.0. Connecting technology and mindfulness, where I learned more about this way of life. My favorite definition on Mindfulness is; paying attention, on purpose, to the present moment, non-judgmentally with kindness, I came up with this definition thanks to Jon Kabat-Zinn the person who began this movement, as well as, more recently a talk on Ted Talks by Shauna Shapiro.

So hello and welcome to our first Blog of our career and of the year. I hope this will be the first of many to come. The idea of blogging will be to provide our students with another resource for improving their English comprehension skills, along with vocabulary building. I have wanted to start this Blog since January 1st, but well as the saying goes; “if it wasn’t one thing it was another” OR “better late than never.”

We use comparatives to compare one person or thing with one other person or thing. We use superlatives to compare one person or thing with many other people or things. My colleague Sean says "It's easy - when you compare it's comparatives (better than/more interesting than etc); when it's super duper it's superlatives (the best / the most interesting!)..."

La pronunciación es algo que como ESL Students siempre nos preocupa y nos ocupa. A algunos nos da pena hablar porque pensamos que pronunciamos mal o porque no nos van a entender, pero ¿adivina qué? ¡No eres tú, somos todos!
