Post 10 English Language challenges

I said in the first class that I don’t learn in the previous three courses of English, because I think that is a short time for practice and improve this language. For me, particularly is very difficult learn this language because I don’t use in day a day, then when I learn a new word and later not use  it, I forget it. As a matter of fact, I don’t study outside of class, I listening music in English and when I like one and I want know what said or meaning the lyrics, look it for in internet the translation of letters. Moreover, when I see movies in English I put the subtitle; therefore, I don’t exercise my English outside class, except when I have homework’s as made a video or write my posts in other moment because I don’t finish in classes or absent one day.
I remember the concept of “significant learn”, because I feel that I must learn this language, is obligatory in my university, but I don’t choose learn this language, I feel that is more important for my future work know about other language for example corporal language or sign language.
Furthermore, I think that the blogs as a methodology for learn English is good, but I need a feedback of my posts, because I feel that I write with a difficult and worry me that the final evaluation is different because I don’t use the computer as support or internet to look a words that I don’t know.
The aspects that I believe are weakest in my English are all the aspects: comprehension, speak, pronunciation, vocabulary, conjugation of verbs, use the sentences correctly, etc…
I plan to do for improved English are: see movies and try understanding without read the subtitle and try read books or papers related with my career.

My future Job - Post 9

What am I going to be when I get older?
This questions, is the question that tormented me when I was in a school because I don't had decided for one career, but now in fourth year of Psychology, I’m feel more sure of my future, because I think that I takes a good decision.
In the next year I have decide my practice or qualified, I will choose qualified “Humanista”, because is the area that like me and I can use this technique in my future work, as art therapy (danceterapy, musicterapy, etc). My practice even not decide, because the offers is too much and in this moment I’m dismiss the place that definitely not like me, for example, the practice of area psychology work-organizational.
When I think in the job that I would like… I think in a job with good labor relations, I like work in a school with children and young’s specifically in the classroom for support a teachers to  improve the significant learn of students. Too, I like work with the parents (representative) because they know very much about of your son or daughter, therefore, if they collaborate with the school for improve the education of students.
Thus, the aspects that I considered when I choosing my job is that in the organization, the work in team interdisciplinary, because I think that the knowledge is collective and persons of different disciplines can complement very well if work for one common project.
In a job interview, I will said about of my strengths are: I’m a person responsible, organized, I like work in groups, and I’m empathic.
On the other hand, my weakness is principally my shyness when I’m with a lot people, but I'm working in this aspect.

Free Theme

Today in this post (number eight), I will talk about of my grandmother …
In the Tuesday 13 of November in this year, I went with my mother to inauguration of exposition of “Mujeres en el siglo XX” in the “Archivo Nacional”.
This exposition was made for historians that wanted rescue the history of woman for this era (s. XX) because in the books or in the history generally appear men as main character. The historians said that the political is more than one a reference to power of state, institutions, economy or relation with the power… The political is too rethinking the organization of everyday life of women and men.
The exposition was prepared with elements that the families give as donation. Although,  I went just for see the thing of my grandmother, I surprised because I found in this place very interesting documents, photographs, for examples, the photograph of woman work in organizations (ONG),and wardrobe of women in this time, as the dress of the first Miss Chile or the nurses outfit.
In this exposition, my grandmother Ana Eugenia Ugalde, was in the section of policy. For me, see her in this place was a pride and a big honor, because she was a feminist that fought for suffrage female and she was a first woman deputy together two friends. My mother donated photographs of my grandmother, letters her father of political party radical when his was exiled in Argentina for object to a government in his time, and book that she wrote about your experience in political.

How green are you?

Actually I’m consider that I'm a person responsible with the careful of environment.
For instance, in my house, all my familiy recycle the plastics, papers, carboards, etc. in the back yard, we have a especial place for recycle all this waste, because all the Wednesday past a truck for outside of my condominium for carry the waste. We are responsible, because all us recycle and worry for take out the waste all Tuesday in the night.  In fact, sometimes I pick up rubbish that I see in the ground  for it leave in the dustbin.
Moreover, in my house we don’t have cars, consecuently we use a public transport and I use my bike for come to the university or other place, except when I have to travel long distance.
Furthermore, I’m saleswoman of Natura product, because I belive in the concept of use personal products as makeup, shampoo, gel, etc. responsibility with environment. For examples, the bar of soap is made with materials 100% vegetable, and perfum is 100%  vegetable acohol, this no pollute. This company is a model of development sustainable, because  Natura have a  certificate of “carbono neutro”,  reforestation of wood that  used in the production,  Natura don’t execute test in animals and work with native comunities of Brazil.
Nevertheless,  I don't consider me responsible with the use of water, because I take too long in the shower, in general my family to take long showers, except my mother, because she worry for the paid.

I said in a post previous that I practice “Spanish Dance”, and so, I like music of folk dance, for example, “fandango”, “jota” or “sevillana”. The music that I like listen when I am alone is music of  “Jorge Drexler”, because is calm and the lyrics are nice,  too because I have with  my boyfriend pretty memorys with some lirics of this artist. When was the festival  “Despertar”, I was  with my boyfriend for see and listen to “Jorge Drexler”.

The Guardian Job

The Guardian Job is a page of internet that helps the people for find jobs. As well in this page divulges news.

Today I looked for news related with my carrier, specifically Psychology Education, but I don’t found news interesting for me.

But I have to do my blog today about a news that appear in this page, and so choose a news about “What happens to your body if you don't let it sleep?”. In this text the author said that university students have little hours of sleep because they work in the night for finish your study and works.  I think that is very bad, but sometimes is a bad necessary.

In this text, the author said that be up all night have consequences, for instance, eventually appear “neuropsychiatric disorders such as anxiety and bipolar depression” and “affects blood pressure and levels of inflammation, resulting in an increased susceptibility to heart disease and cancer”. The effects in a short time are: “addiction and impulsive behavior”.

Furthermore, some research indicates that sleep deprivation, there could be permanent brain damage.

Finally this document propose that study all-nighter before an exam, does more harm than good, because “the consolidation of memories occurs during deep sleep.”

This isn’t new to me, because I learn it in my class of neuropsychology, but maybe it’s useful for you…

In other yard, I had a cage for rabbits, in total I had a nine rabbits, all they were of fallen ears, is a little breed. My favorite rabbits was “Tambor”, because It was  playful.  It was black and fat, because he liked  feed all day.
My dogs were in a back yard, they were “pastor aleman”. One of them called “Reina”, it was my first pet. She was a good dog, because she was train, she was gone to championships and won  trophys.  Years later, she had fourteen  puppy and my house was fill of little dogs, it was very fun for me and my sister.

A country I would like to visit is Spain, because it's a promise I have done to my Spanish Dance teacher

I have practiced Spanish Dance since I was five years old, is my passion. Dancing is the way I release the tension or stress, but principally I dance to enjoy and feel the music. 

Also I would like to make a comparison between Spanish Dance and “Flamenco”, because the first one it looks like a ballet, and the second one it's a little bit more "primitive", with a stronger dance step than Spanish Dance.

The things I would like to do in Spain are visit the places where the people dance their regional folk dance, for example, “fandango”, “jota” or “sevillana”. I would like to live this experience to practice and learn a lot more.

Another interesting places I would like to visit are the Spanish Dance cloth or accessories shops, because it's quite different the quality and variety than here in Chile. For example, a dress in Spain has more details and colors, the “castañuelas” have a greater and deeper sound and the “abanicos” have very beautiful designs.

My name is Claudia Cifuentes. I’m study psychology in fourth year.
Nowaday I work in my memory to graduate of Pychology in the next year. My memory is about of Educational Pychology, specifically in Education Inclusion.
When I think in the past semester, I beleve that a good points are: First, I lerned very much about the educational inclusion. This is important for my, because I like do my practice in a school, and I feel that this knowledge is necessary to advance in a little changes in chilean education.  Other good point in this process, is that I working whit a team of investigation, because I feel support whit them.
However , this process have a bad points; for example, I have less time of study for subjets of my carriere, or less time to meet my friend or my boyfriend.
In general I feel that the past semeste was a time to lern very much, but this experience was exhausting.
