Question:

What is the difference between the verbs "ser" and "estar," both meaning 'to be'?

Chelsea S.
Answer:

Although both "ser" and "estar" mean "to be," one has to look at the context it is being used in to determine which to place in a sentence. The verb "ser" is used for something that is permanent or unchangeable. For example, "Soy alta" - I am tall. Estar is used when something can change such as feelings. For instance, "Estoy hombre"- I am hungry.

Sociology

Question:

How is technology changing social interaction?

Chelsea S.
Answer:

With the increase in technology use, generations are beginning to structure social norms in cyberspace. With that being said, less face-to-face communication is happening which leads to various developmental issues like the sense of true self or identity, everything becomes virtual lacking real human interaction.

English as a Second Language

Question:

What is your strategy when it comes to teaching ESL?

Chelsea S.
Answer:

As mentioned before, I taught English as a second language to native Spanish speakers. One strategy that I found helpful was repetition. During each session, I would have a repeat of the last lesson and would use that to build upon the next. When learning a new language, it is important not only to listen carefully but to not shy away from speaking out and practicing consistently.
