  • Give me a multi-language class. Give me a class where English and Spanish are taught side by side. Teach me about the role and placement of verbs in English and then teach me how that compares to French. English has a Latin alphabet? Cool, I wanna learn about how the formation of that alphabet differed from the formation of a man made language like Korean. Was the Latin alphabet originally meant to be spoken or written? What about sign language? Does this impact how difficult the language is to learn? What about traditional languages spoken by native americans? Show me stress patterns and tell me why. Give me a graph about the rise and fall of languages and explain what event or lack of event caused the fluctuation. Why are these strung together sounds the way they are?


    Teach me to understand languages before you expect me to understand the words.

  • “For the peoples whose identity has been shattered by the successive cultures of conquest, and whose merciless exploitation contributes to the functioning of the machinery of world capitalism, the system generates a ‘mass culture.’ Culture for the masses is a more precise description of this degraded art of the mass media, which manipulates consciousness, conceals reality, and stifles the creative imagination. Naturally it does not lead to a revelation of identity but is rather a means of erasing or distorting it in order to impose ways of life and patterns of consumption which are widely disseminated through the mass media. The culture of the dominant class is called ‘national culture’; it lives an imported life and limits itself to irritating, stupidly and vulgarly, so-called universal culture, or that which passes for such among those who confuse it with the culture of the dominant countries.

    In our time, an era of multiple markets and multinational corporations, both economics and culture (that is, ‘mass culture’) have been internationalized, thanks to accelerated development and the mass media. The centers of power export not only machinery and patents to us, but also ideology. If in Latin America the enjoyment of worldly goods is limited to the few, it then follows that the majority must resign itself to the consumption of fantasy. Illusions of wealth are sold to the poor, illusions of freedom to the oppressed, dreams of victory to the defeated and of power to the weak. One need not be literate to consume the inviting symbols presented by television, radio, and films in their effort to justify the unequal organization of the world.

    In order to maintain the status quo in these lands, where each minute a child dies of disease or hunger, we must look at ourselves through the eyes of those who oppress us. People are trained to accept this order as natural, therefore eternal; and the system is identified with the fatherland, so that an enemy of the regime is by extension a traitor or a foreign agent. The law of the jungle, which is the law of the system, is sanctified, so that the defeated peoples will accept their condition as destiny; by falsifying the past, the true causes of Latin America’s historical failure are passed over – Latin America, whose poverty has always fed alien wealth. On the small television screen and on the large, the best man wins, the best being the strongest. The waste, the exhibitionism, and the unscrupulousness produce not revulsion but admiration; everything can be bought, sold, rented, consumed, including the soul. Magical properties are attributed to a cigarette, a car, a bottle of whiskey, or a wristwatch: they can provide us with personalities, they can guide us toward success and happiness.”

    – Eduardo Galeano, “In Defense of the Word”

  • Its 2:30 am and I just finished my f*cking business homework, at the small (albeit significant) cost of losing all faith in humanity and our economic system. Apparently health insurance costs over 500/month on average?? Who tf can afford that? I had been avoiding this information bc my insurance expired at 19 and I knew I didnt have the money for any, but I had no idea. Ugh. I dont know how studious people do this kind of shit. Or any people for that matter.

    People, if you’re going to make ignorant statements, at least make sure that the grammar of your number one trending #hashtag is correct. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    How are you even going to prove yourselves “right” if you make mistakes with something so simple? 🙄 If I wasn’t too obvious, I was being sarcastic. 😑

    I’m not good in grammar but English was one of my favorite subjects in school, and the “grammatical OCD” in me started kicking in when I saw this.

    Don’t forget the basic rule of SVA: Every singular subject uses singular verb/s or verb/s ending with ’s’ (e.g. goes, glows, grows) while the opposite is true vis-à-vis using a plural subject where plural verb/s (e.g. go, grow, glow) is/are applied.

    For example:

    ▪️The dog (singular subject) wants (verb + ’s’) to go for a walk.

    ▪️The cats (plural subject) need (verb without ’s’) to take their vitamins.

    Don’t even let me get started with:

    ▪️There,” they’re,” and their

    ▪️Yourandyou’re

    ▪️To,” too,” and two

    ▪️It’s and its
