Splendid to meet you! Let me introduce myself: I’m Mr. B, a grammar-mad English gentleman who wants to show you all what a terrific thing it is to learn a new language. Follow me as I blog my way through english language and culture and check out my Facebook and twitter feed (@Consulpes) for words of the day, idioms and interesting articles.
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart. – Nelson Mandela
Why learn a language, then? As an english teacher with experience teaching everyone from schoolkids through refugees to company managers, I can tell you that there’s no one correct answer. The only thing everyone agrees on is that they help. With everything. Whether you want to travel abroad, expand your business or (my favourite reason) just keep up with the grandchildren, there’s never been a better time to become a linguist.
«Ok, I’m interested in broadening my horizons. What’s the first step?» I hear you ask. Immersion. Simple as that: read English, think English, treat yourself to some video classes and speak English. And if you’re in Murcia, join us in class and have fun learning with friends, or in one-to-one personalised tutorials! Stay tuned for regular updates on this blog, on Facebook and on Twitter.
All the best,
Grammarian, teacher and blogger extraordinaire
