Next week: Celebrating World Book Day

May 1, 2013

Next May 6 and 7, after this week’s 3-day holiday, we’ll celebrate World Book Day. Here is all the info on the raffle: May 6 & 7 Raffle (2 pdf pages)

I’ll bring varied podcast episodes / the episode “To belong” of the Baby Human Geniuses in Diapers documentary, for the first half of the lesson, for we’re done with unit 6, right?

Avanzado 2 Martes englishlings!, please remind me of giving you the stapled paper copies! Remember I’ll be on a strike on May 9!

Have a lovely 3-day holiday! 🙂
(In Spanish we call them “puentes”, “bridges”, when they connect with the weekend, but if you say “I’m on a bridge” English-speakers will never ever guess what you mean! :D)

Toni Morrison – thinker, artist and activist

January 3, 2013

😉 😀 😀

Yesterday I was really lucky. I found an interview to Toni Morrison on TV! I’ve been googling to find it, and just got to this: a little video on a much longer interview and then an article. I’d like to say that I consider Toni Morrison one of the most intelligent earthlings I’ve ever listened to. Just in case you were going to skip this post and I’ve managed to make you curious about it! 😀

This one’s a must, people! Thanks to Google I’ve found a wonderful video to watch: Angela Davis and Toni Morrison, having a truly good time together (unlike in the interview above).

Once, I lent Miguel, an Advanced student I met in the first state-run language school I worked in, “Playing in the Dark”, a very think/brief essay, full of interesting ideas. It was hard for Miguel, but he managed to work on some of it. On the little webita on Toni Morrison at Talking People, you’ll find that link too:

And this is a link to Toni Morrison on Mujer Palabra. In Spanish, so sorry about that. I started a little series called “Recensiones raras feministas” (Odd & Feminist Book Reviews).
