    Hi! Teacher, I´m Lulu.
    In this week I had thought and I reflected about my writing. I know that the writing is one of the principal skills that the people must learn because It is a basic tool.
    I know all about me, I know that need more writing practice because I deficient about it. When I´m writing in spanish I feel this deficiency too, I think and I believe that It has solution but depend all of me. I know that I need more mental fluency too.

    The goals are from whom perceive and I´m going to do it!

    Hello Teacher and everybody!

    My name is Juan, I’m studying my fourth year of accounting. I am from Mexico and I have been living almos my entire life in Morelia. I like listening to music and going out with my friends. I also enjoy working and professional challenges. When I’m successful i feel incredible and more confident. With this course I’d like to improve my writing skills because I feel I may lack in vocabulary. I’d like to know and use synonims of the words I already know. I’m planning to do my best.

    This first meeting reinforced me in why I decided to take the adventure of this workshop. I learnt the importance of cultivating writing skill in any language. Although, I am taking this English writing workshop, many understandings and useful ideas of many topics came up, not only of my second language. The first class helped me to clarify many issues related with my mother language writing and communication. Practice, practice, is the key. For writing well, the unique way to achieve it is writing, writing and writing. So, I decide to start this journey in the letters, words, sentences, and ideas world.
    I am very excited. The course is not only an English class, is more than this. This situation motivates me to continue with this new experience. I am convinced that teaching has to come up from the heart. And in this course, I feel I found it. Teaching and learning truly is not only a process where we fill boxes with contents; we connect contents, we develop skills of communication, of life styles, and other things. Education has to be for life, for all the facets of our existence.
    I agree with the idea that teacher teaches and learns as the same as the student that learns and teaches. We are building communication bridges of two senses. Thanks, Ellen.
