How can I become fluent in Spanish?
Becoming fluent in another language takes time, practice, and an open mind. After all, you are teaching your brain a completely new way to think! To begin, it is important to identify your reason for learning Spanish. Who do you imagine talking to? Where do you want to go? What doors can you open by learning Spanish? The answers to these questions will keep you going when the details get tough. Having another language to express yourself in is exciting! In addition to classes that will strengthen your grammar and vocabulary, I always suggest students find movies, music, and literature in Spanish in a subject that they are interested in. If you aren't able to immerse yourself in the language in a Spanish-speaking country, the next best thing is to immerse yourself at home! ¡Buena suerte!
How do I write an A+ paper?
Academic writing can appear daunting if we immediately focus on the end result of our paper. Do write a paper that will not only be persuasive and well-researched, but also get you that A+, you will need to find your voice and learn how to use it. What is your "why"? What is your purpose? From there, start to scaffold your paper with the research that you have already done. Take each piece one at a time. Eventually your writing will start to flow.
Why do some groups in society have a harder time than others?
That is one of the very fundamental questions that Sociology seeks to answer! Different Sociologists have unique perspectives on societal division and hierarchy. For example, Feminists would suggest that women and women-identified people are marginalized by a patriarchal society which systematically oppresses them. Marxists focus on the class differences in society and argue that the fundamental differences in the human experience boil down to labor, owning land, and class. Let's dive in to other Sociological points of view and see how they overlap or differ!
