Monday: May 18, 2015
Earnest Hemingway is my favorite author, and Frank Lloyd Wright is very exceptional, since I bring with the Transformative Blog much of my memories past from the bustling city of Chicago. However, on my birthday today, May 18th, I plan to bring as much of a moveable feast to my upcoming memoir, as Earnest Hemingway did with his own writing.
A part of transforming is recognizing upcoming life events that will not only change your life, but the person whom resides at the seat of your soul. It's my birthday, and I therefore want to pay homage to my life, to my years on planet earth. I'd like to do it in a much polished way; recognizing years spent with certain friends, loving a child, and finding out who I really am as a person. I'm studying French again, this time with a vigor that cannot be questioned, as I plan to be somewhat fluent in French for my trip to Paris in 2016. Additionally, I have yet to spend the summer with Tin Lizzie on Beth's Boat in Cali. Not to mention catching a ferry up the straights of Mackinac, maybe even sailing from the straights, the nearly 300 miles up into Canada. And then there is biking around the island every morning for a couple of weeks! Now, what about my writing? Where does the incorrigibly unpretentious writer venture off to?
In my Writing Workshop I class at Columbia in the fall of 1979, Professor Margaret Yntema motivated me, challenged me, and changed the way in which I saw the world. It was the first year that I read from the greatest of writers. I read Toni Morrison'sBlack Boy and Song of Solomon. I read the required reading, some of which was Herman Melville's Moby Dick. More writing personified, was when I read my most favorite piece by Hemingway that I first read when I was just 15 years old: A Clean, Well Lighted Place.
While allowing for such marvelous works of literature to resonate within your mind, one cannot help but to see life differently. I think about everything I ever saw, tasted, dreamt, and felt passion for. What do I want my legacy to be? What does the Holy Spirit really want me to know about myself; about this place on earth in which I reside?
In my 54th year on planet earth, I'd like to thank my mother for sending me for eight summers to the Art Institute of Chicago. Even though my family is disconnected, with some distance off in Cali, some in Chicago, and the southern portion of the U.S., I can still say that I've made it thus far. I now love and adore the southern portion of the U.S., and I'm currently studying the history of the southwestern Nevada. Who am I? Well, I think I'm a classy, introverted artistic, freelance writer, and web designer, who runs an ESL company. I love communicating with my students all across the globe, and I love all of my children and their children. I love and adore my little cuties. Thanks big world for all of the experiences thus far. In the photos I've place to the left, I'm telling you my wonderful experiences. Thanks for them all. Happy Birthday to me! Happy birthday Gia Benigni di Borgo!

We have a lot of students who love this Youtube video. This video really examines language use and as you view it, you really can hear all of the beautiful accents of the world. Many times we forget just how beautiful our languages are. Additionally, Amy Walker is an actress and a one-of-a-kind. It must have taken her years of practice to complete this video. Furthermore, not too many people are able to do what she has done. Some people might be able to learn a few different accents but not 21.
So, enjoy this video and compare the many accents in the video to ways in which you can view your own study of the English language. (Many of our students may hear the many dialects, (or accents), from the many different states that Amy is performing from the USA). - ESL Carnival Academy
Sometimes, America just has to laugh at itself. Here at the Academy, we love to take breaks from ESL teaching to acknowledge great comedians. Also, in keeping with our Carnival theme, we recognize when things are just too plain funny. Additionally, we have a couple of staff members whose birthday is April 1st - or April Fool's Day. Anyway, we'll miss Jon Stewart, although his humor is legendary. Here is Jon's recent ode to big American corporations who really "care" about Americans & the American diet. Love your jokes, Mr. Stewart!

ESL Carnival Academy hit the road to deliver ESL lessons at a cafe in Las Vegas Nevada this past Saturday. It was a wonderful start to teaching English in French cafes, in American coffee houses, and in Japanese "Tea Pot & Social Houses." The latter is the location for the next meeting stated for March 14th at the Tea Pot & Social House in Henderson.
It's interesting in that we believe that total language immersion is the best way to improve your English, however, if it isn't the prime time for you to travel abroad we have an answer. You can immerse yourself in English and in international culture right in your own backyard. In the case for this past weekend, you can immerse yourself in the southeastern Europe's Bulgarian culture. If you live in the Nevada area, you're free to join the Las Vegas/Henderson ESL Group via ESL Carnival Academy. See here on information of how to join.

HOW RUSSIAN STUDENTS CAN SPEAK ENGLISH BETTER
By: George Ivanov
Hello! My name is George Ivanov and I am from Moscow, Russia. In this essay I will tell you the ways in which Russian students can speak English better. I will also explain to you some tools that you can use to help improve your English. Some of the ways you can improve your English is by:
1) Practicing 2-3 times a week with a tutor at ESL Carnival Academy
2) Practice you English on www.English-Test.net
3) Practice the best English game ever: “Warhammer 40,000”
(Each army has his own RULE book that you're able to translate. When you complete the translation you'll have a great book that has 500 translated pages).
4) Practice your English by playing English video game like "Destiny."
5) Practice to use your Russian Google translator often
You will ask me: How can I learn English George? In fact, I have learned how to speak English in many ways, but one of them is the one I like the most of all. I will tell you about it in a few moments.
One way you can learn English better is to have a personal tutor from the USA, UK or another native English speaking country. My Teacher Gia is from USA. We have lessons three times a week. I love learning English with a private tutor. This is really what’s interesting: we can go to different websites and I can take online tests and quizzes. So, I have a very good teacher.
A second way to learn is through a personal tutor who teaches English but is from Russia. My Russian’s teacher’s name was Mr. Bob. His teaching style was very boring, but it produced results. I had lessons for 5 years, so I know English very well.
A third way to learn English better is by taking a class at a school like “Language Link.” That was “not bad and not good.”
But I don’t like it, I HATE it.
I prefer the first two ways. So you can choose the right way for you.
What about the tools for learning English?
