Speaking and communicating in English: What a nightmare!

Are you interested in improving your English speaking skills in a relaxed way? If yes, the Inglés Málaga Chat Room sessions with Janette might be just what you are looking for.

The Inglés Málaga Chat Room sessions are small group classes that are focused on improving your ability to have a conversation and express your ideas with fluency, accuracy and confidence.  They are not focused on preparing for exams, memorizing verb conjugations like a parrot, nor using acronyms and other confusing bits and bobs of the alphabet: LOL, WTF, KYS, OMW!!

If you want more information about the Inglés Málaga Chat Room sessions, drop me a line and I´ll fill you in on the details.

Vocabulary, expressions and idioms

Expanding your knowledge of vocabulary, expressions and idioms is essential if you want to improve your English language skills and communicate. We think the most effective way of doing this is to learn in context.  Consequently, why not check out some of our topic situations?  Or, even better, you could become an Inglés Málaga online blogger in order to practise writing about the things that interest you.  If you want to become an Inglés Málaga blogger, then drop us an email.

Collocations: Charity

Yemen: On the brink of starvation

Millions of men, women and children are starving in Yemen. Hunger is the Yemen´s silent killer. Food is unaffordable, unavailable, and humanitarian aid is hindered or blocked by a country devastated by war and genocide.  What? Where? Why? Improve your listening skills by watching this video report.  At the same time, ask yourself why this video has only had 3,350 views, while a video on how many girls Justin Bieber has dated has received over 1.7 million hits.

Disgustingly, the British and the USA governments directly support the war in the Yemen by capitalising on the sale of weapons, arms and bombs.

It´s time for us all to stop looking the other way.  Donating money might help in the short term, but using your voice to lobby governments and hold them accountable for their actions is bound to have a longer lasting effect.

Don´t let governments use your tax to sell weapons. Don´t let your governments justify this heinous action in the name of national economic prosperity. Don´t let the childish behaviour of politicians distract you from the ‘real’ issues.  Don´t let the lawyers and academics cloud your sense of moral and ethical justice with legal and intellectual debate.  Perhaps, I don´t know, or don´t have the intellectual capabilities to truly understand all the issues.  And, quite frankly, I don´t care; selling arms for economic and political gain is just wrong.

Volunteer for a local charity: Bancosol

Unfortunately, the biggest constant in society, from the origins of civilisation to the present digital age, is the systematic presence of inequality. Man has actively coveted and nurtured the continued existence of inequality. We live in a world where wealth, power, knowledge and justice are in the hands of the few to the detriment of the majority.

Regrettably, it appears to be an insurmountable challenge to change this, partially as a result of man´s natural instinct for greed. However, it seems to me that we can all make a massive difference on a local level.  There are lots of local charities that need your time and your altruism; today say NO to hunger and support Bancosol; it´s time to have a heart of gold.  The big food collection takes place on December the 1st and December the 2nd, and you can make a difference.
