Ingles Malaga: Inspired: Stop buying fake goods

You only need 11 minutes to learn how the fake handbags, watches, clothes and trainers we buy without blinking an eyelid fund terrorism and organized crime.  Alistair Gray says: “Let’s shine a light on the dark forces of counterfeiting that are hiding in plain sight,”.

What refugees need to start new lives – bring on AI

Be inspired with a Ted Talks!

Every minute, 20 people are newly displaced by climate change, economic crisis and political instability, according to the UNHCR. How can we help them overcome the barriers to starting new lives? TED Resident Muhammed Idris is leading a team of technologists, researchers and refugees to develop Atar, the first-ever AI-powered virtual advocate that guides displaced people through resettlement, helping restore their rights and dignity. “Getting access to the right resources and information can be the difference between life and death,” Idris says.

Diversify your brain: Get in with the App crowd!

So, when I´m not working, I try to go to this Meetup group: Málaga Ideathons

The groups mission is thus: “Apping” Malaga’s Life. Participate on an event focussed on creative ideas to improve life in Malaga by the use of apps and smartphones that could eventually lead to start-ups by the participants. A great opportunity to network for entrepreneurs and creatives.”

OK, it´s true, the technology, and the techno mumbo jumbo vernacular is way beyond my skill set, but, for the moment, technology is nothing without people who generate the ideas, and solve the problems. In light of this, I would check them out. Go on, get out of your comfort zone, and get ”Apping”.

You could also propose that the group investigate a problem you experience in your day-to-day life, or an issue at work that could be solved with an App.

However, if that´s not your cup of tea, why not check out an Inglés Málaga Meetup event instead.

English Boot Camp

We know, it´s a pain in the ass. But, sometimes, an intensive kick in the rear is the only way to get yourself in shape.

The Boot Camps are suitable for people who are at exam level, but need a better exam strategy, and more exam paper practise. If you are not exam ready, take a look at a different course.

The English Exam Boot Camps schedule:

  1. 8 consecutive weeks
  2. Saturday & Sunday mornings from 09:00 to 12:00.
  3. Maximum groups of 4 people

Love to love: Buy Local

I love Saint Valentine´s day, not because I´m romantic, and not because I want my post box to be full of cards, flowers and cuddly toys, but because it´s the perfect opportunity to demonstrate love for the city you live in.

So, from today until the end of February, I´m not going to spend one penny in a shop which isn´t locally owned. And, I´m going to start by promoting the fabulous second-hand clothes shop: Madame Susette y Senor Reina. 

Madame Susette is delicious, and her boutique shop is a sensory delight. If you want to stand out from the crowd, you can come and study English with me, and you can also treat yourself to the pleasure of second-hand clothing shopping.

Love to love Málaga
