New Lessons For July 2010

Chinese

My writings
I have decided to share my writings which I also enjoy listening to. I wish that these contents would help learners to start chinese. I separated each chinese character meaningfully in order that beginners analyze my texts. Using translator is useful, but analyzing each phrase by looking up each word is also helpful to develop grammar skills. If they don’t seem nice, please leave your message on the Forum. I will remove them immediately. If you are interested in my writings, please visit my blog (in Chinese).http://bitex-cn.com/bitexblog/default/blog_320.html

In the waters of the Caribbean Sea, a voracious invasive species called the lionfish is threatening to overtake the reefs. Conservation groups are fighting back with an unusual approach. “Eat them to beat them,” is their slogan, and they’re urging chefs and diners to enjoy the unwelcome fish as a tasty delicacy.

CARNET DE VOYAGE – 2010 – HONDURAS ET GUATEMALA
En février/mars dernier, j’ai décidé d’aller rendre visite à ma copine Marion qui est partie depuis un an et demi en Honduras pour développer dans un petit village un centre de santé basé sur la médecine naturelle ancestrale. Marion adore le village de Copan Ruinas, et je voulais absolument connaître cette ville où elle habitait, voir comment elle travaillait (la première semaine de mon voyage), en profiter pour visiter également le Guatemala ( 2ème semaine) puis retrouver Marion en Honduras pour une semaine de plongée entre fille (3ème semaine). J’ai fixé cela pour un départ le 21 Juin et retour le 11 juillet 2010. Tout le long du voyage, j’ai essayé de tenir un journal de bord, afin de faire profiter mon entourage de mon expérience de ces deux pays.

Carnet de voyages
Si vous décidez de lire ce carnet de voyage, vous allez partager avec moi quatorze mois de ma vie sur une petite île perdue aux confins de l’océan Indien en direction du Pôle Sud. Cette île est considérée comme le sanctuaire de la plus grosse concentration d’oiseaux au monde. Vingt-cinq millions d’oiseaux nichent et se reproduisent dans cette région sauvage au climat particulièrement rude. Mais les oiseaux ne sont pas les seuls animaux à vivre là-bas, vous pourrez rencontrer aussi des manchots, des éléphants de mer, des otaries, des orques et éventuellement une poignée d’autres animaux étranges…. des êtres humains, vingt-trois pour être précis. Alors si l’aventure vous tente, feuilletez avec moi ce carnet de voyage. If you decide to read this ship’s log, you are going to share with me fourteen months in a wild island lost in the middle of nowhere toward the South Pole. This island is considered to be the sanctuary for 25 million birds. A lot of other animals live there, such as penguins, seal elephants, killer whales and a handful of strange animals…. human beings! If this adventure attracts you, let’s leaf through this ship’s log together!

Le Grand Meaulnes
Le Grand Meaulnes est l’unique roman d’Alain-Fournier, publié en 1913. Le roman retrace l’histoire d’Augustin Meaulnes, racontée par son ancien camarade de classe, François Seurel, devenu son ami. François Seurel et Augustin Meaulnes sont tous deux écoliers dans un petit village de Sologne près de Vierzon. Lors d’une escapade, Augustin Meaulnes arrive par hasard dans un domaine mystérieux où se déroule une fête étrange et poétique, pleine d’enfants. Le château est bruissant de jeux, de danses et de mascarades. Meaulnes apprend que cette fête est donnée à l’occasion des noces de Frantz de Galais. Parmi les festivités, des promenades en barque sur un lac sont offertes aux convives ; Meaulnes y rencontre une jeune fille dont il tombe instantanément amoureux. Il ne fait cependant que la croiser et n’aura plus l’occasion de la revoir. En effet, la fiancée tant attendue s’est enfuie, le mariage n’a pas lieu et la fête prend tristement fin. Revenu à sa vie d’écolier, Meaulnes n’a plus qu’une idée en tête : retrouver le domaine mystérieux et la jeune femme qu’il aime. Ses recherches restent infructueuses. Il s’en va étudier à Paris. C’est par hasard que son ami Seurel, devenu instituteur, retrouve la piste de la jeune dame, Yvonne de Galais (la sœur de Frantz), dont le Grand Meaulnes est amoureux… Cette histoire reflète une amitié très forte, à laquelle le lecteur peut s’identifier, et une confiance associée au sentiment de sécurité que procure le soutien inconditionnel d’un ami.

A Beginner Course of Spoken Russian / Курс разговорного русского языка для начинающих
This course is certainly for beginner Russian learners. Of course, if you are an intermediate or advanced learner but feel that you need additional speaking practice you can check it out as well. First off, you have a recorded dialogue in the form of an mp3-file with transcript. It is a very simple and straightforward audio. These items consist of very useful phrases in Russian that you can hear on the street, in the shop, at the cinema, or at work etc. There is a transcript to every audio file. As you listen to these items you may notice that they are recorded in two voices and with a lot of emphasis in order to make you more alert to the language. Secondly, you have an additional mp3-file with a so-called “mini-story.” Throughout the story we ask you questions about the story, pausing after each question. During the break you have to answer the question out loud (or you can simply listen and answer the question in your head). When I study English using this method my own preference is to answer the questions out loud, but feel free to make your own decisions about your studying routine. You can find additional mini-stories at http://nikolaytimoshenko.com/a-beginner-course-of-spoken-russian

The Russian Five Podcasts
These podcasts are geared towards those who are learning Russian at the intermediate and advanced levels. If you are a brave beginner you can check it out as well. The idea of this podcast is simple. You can really advance in your study if you learn words deliberately in context. Of course, hearing the same words a lot of times or in different contexts is beneficial as well. So, we created this podcast in order to assist you with the process of learning new Russians words. Each item has five new Russian words with explanations and usage examples. Certainly, there is a transcript as well. This is a daily podcast. You get a link to a torrent file that allows you to download all available episodes. Keep yourself up to date by subscribing to our free newsletter. P.S. We have put aside our funny and casual manner while recording these items and have tried to be really serious. Check out our podcasts to find out whether we achieved it or not 🙂

Ciencia en pocas palabras

Escritos de estudiantes
Esta colección está formada por escritos de otras personas, de estudiantes de español. Cuando corregimos un texto, solemos corregir los errores, pero no el estilo. A veces hay algo que es correcto, pero no suele usarse de esa forma, o se usaría otra expresión más habitual para ello. Siempre que corrijo un escrito, grabo la versión corregida y se la envío al estudiante para que pueda usarla. Sin embargo, hay veces en las que, además de eso, me parece interesante reescribir un poco el texto para dejarlo con una forma más natural, más parecido a lo que diría un hispanohablante. Las lecciones incluidas en esta colección son las versiones “ligeramente modificadas” de los escritos originales de los estudiantes (lógicamente con su permiso).
Lessons in Collection: 2, New This Month: 2
Improvisaciones
En esta colección voy a limitarme a hablar espontáneamente, sin guión alguno, de temas cuotidianos, del día a día. A diferencia de las demás colecciones, la idea es hablar e improvisar sobre la marcha, y realizar la transcripción más tarde. De esta forma, se crea un audio natural, oral, disperso, propio del lenguaje hablado. Supongo que esta colección está más orientada a usuario medios o avanzados, anque también puede resultar interesante para usuarios noveles. En los casos en los que utilice expresiones muy coloquiales, intentaré crear un pequeño vocabulario/explicación al final de la lección. De todas formas, si hay algo que no entendéis, no dudéis en preguntar!
