March 28, 2012

Hello!

I finished my IELTS preparation course today!

My teacher’s feedback was: you are in band 6 (among 6 to 7). Oh my god! I want to cry!

I am 1.5 points of my goal! So far! Moreover, I must try to have around 8 to be sure. On the other hand, teacher told me that if I work hard I will do it!

I am confused, I am asking to myself if it is a good idea to take the IELTS on June 30. Sometimes, I feel like I am back the wrong horse, and I will never have enough score in the test. However, it is not time to cry over spilled milk; I need to study, and sooner or later I will have enough English level. I hope it.

Well, the current plan is: go to the beach for vacation next week; take the conversation course in the British Council; having personal lessons with an IELTS examiner after vacations; take the IELTS on June 30 and if I do not have enough score, I would apply to my residence mean I am trying to have enough score for my register in the Board of Psychologist NZ. If I have enough score in the IELTS on June 30 or around September, I will apply for my registration in the Board of Psychologist NZ.

So, I am not back to square one because, at the moment I have enough score to ask for my residence, it is not my plan, because I want to have my register first and my work, to go there easier. But anyway, I have options.

Today, I am no in NZ, I am not near to my registration; but I am in the way to be there.

Finally, if I have enough score in the IELTS, I will continue with my plan: to ask for my register, then find a job and go there with all of that.

It is the balance of the day. I am worried, but focus on my goal!

See you.

March 26, 2012. Some reflexions.

Hi!

I will finish the IELTS preparation course on Wednesday; this course has been lazy, but anyway I have learned a lot this time, I have taken it deep down, trying to catch whatever I can. Maybe it is the good part of be the worst person in the group.

I asked to my teacher about to be my personal teacher. He is thinking, and he said that he does not have enough time, and he will ask to a collage. Today, he told me that if his collage cannot, he will be my personal teacher.

At the first time, I thought: I will ask to God that the collage cannot; but the real situation is not that I want to have him as personal teacher, the real situation is that I need to have enough score in the IELTS as soon as be possible; I hope to have success on June 30. So, please God: send me a teacher who can help me to have enough score on 30 June!


Sometime, I think that I have higher expectations about myself than are possible. So, I am very demanding to myself. Anyway, I hope to have success working hard, to continue with my life. I hope it will be possible!


On the other hand, I am picking up my exercises routine. I need to improve my cardiovascular endurance; I am thinking about jogging twice or three times a week and trekking the Avila twice a week. Well, this week I am going to take vacations and go to the beach; but after that, I will start to draw a new exercise routine.


Finally, I want to share with you a comment of my sweet husband: you fell in love with all your teacher, it is not important if they are blond, black, beautiful, awful, man, woman, child, dog, wilted flower or whatever.

I think he is right! And it is so funny, I definitely enjoy all kind of academic experiences, and I feel love for whoever who helps me to learn something.


Well, I hope to have success in the IELTS soon.

See you.

How many people are thinking about to buy the New iPad?
By Tahirí Rojas





Baird Equity Research has made a study about how many people expect to buy a New iPad in the next three months around the world and in the US.

They found amazing conclusions: 29% of international surveyed are talking about having a New iPad soon, whereas 24% of Americans respondents share the same intention.

Are those figures reliable? Is it possible? Is Apple ready for this?

At the moment I do not have any answer for these questions.

Anyway there exists more statistics:

·         Around 48% of iPad’s owners are thinking about buying the new one.

·         Among 42% of people hoping to buy the New iPad have never had and iPad

·         15% of surveyed want to have an iPad 2.


About reasons:

·         28% of people hoping to have the New iPad told that the reason for their election is the Retina Display.

·         26% because A5X processor.

In my opinion, it is incredible news, and it is time to wait for future to know what happen.

New iPad: the hot iPad.

New iPad: the hot iPad.
By Tahirí Rojas





A couple of weeks after New iPad launched, users have been testing it and they are talking about a lot of wonderful things like it runs new games, screen definition is amazing, etc.

This trouble is related with the highest level of New iPad’s screen and processor.

At the moment, Apple has not said anything about it, and some expert are explaining that it will be inevitable in the New iPad and future generation of tablet because their features and power.

Task 2.

In many countries children are engaged in some kind of paid work. Some people regard this as completely wrong, while others consider it as valuable work experience, important for learning and taking responsibility.
What are your opinions on this?


Around the world some countries encourage paid work in children; it is usually in poor places, and with talented boy and girls. There exist different ideas about it; some of them have a trend to say that early paid work is a way to learn about responsibilities, find work experience, and prepare yourself for life; while other opinions claim about it as a terrible mistake of society, parents and governments.

Childrenhood is a time to prepare for life, learn important things and skills for future. For some children could be essential to work early and start to build their life looking for a better future, specially because they count on family support to teach them, and help them when some trouble come out of the blue; in this way, they would learn about hard things with family holding.

On the other hand, the surest way to have success (for people and society) is focus on education which is the rout to teach important things to children at the moment they are playing and enjoying their childrenhood that is very short time in life. Moreover, recent research has showed that people who learned to study early tend to have higher academic career and usually they are more successful in future. Then, it is important to spend the early ages playing and studying.

Nevertheless, it is difficult in poor society where it is necessary that each family member find money to eat every day. However, government must to work looking for solvent those problems and offer opportunities to study for children. Even if having a paid work is a help for some children,  it is necessary that they can go to school.

In the final analysis, in my opinion children must spend their time studying and playing to grow up strong and be ready for the future. Some kids could need to work but it should to be avoiding step by step offering better opportunities.



Task 1


The charts are talking about which resources tend to use people to find world news and local news in the UK, in the decade started in 1987 and finished in 1997.

Majority people look for local and global news by different ways. For instance, to find news about world most people used television during this period; to illustrate it clearly, between 65% to 67% of them used to TV to know news; during this time the percentage of them had fluctuations but in low range. Meanwhile, only 19% of people used TV to know about local news in 1987, but this proportion was rising slowly and with some fluctuations to close in 37% in 1997.

On the other hand, in 1987 around 25% of people used newspapers to find world news, and it was decreasing slightly with some low fluctuations to close in 20% at the end of the decade. Whereas, large amount of then tended to use newspapers to look for information about local news; it started in 56% of people, and was decreasing slowly with some fluctuations during those ten years, to close in 40% of people o read newspapers to find local news.

Finally, few people tended to use radio to find news, of both local and world news. Related with world news they were 9% at the beginning and end of the period with light fluctuations, and it was the same with local news, but started in 12% and closed in 11%.

To conclusion, majority people preferred to use TV to find news about world, and newspaper for local news; mean they did not tend to use radio to look for news in general for this period.

Task 2.

Advances in science and technology and other areas of society in the last 100 year have transformed the way we live as well as postponing the day we die. There is no better time to be alive than now.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?

The last century humanity has reached a lot of development in science, technology, medicine and more subjects. All of those have changed lifestyle in our species like for instead, how long human can live at the moment. It has been a great improvement for us; even it is possible that it brings bad aspects as well.

Some years ago, people suffered much health problems that now the medicine evolution has eradicated; or in the past was very hard to travel or communicate with a person living in another country; but in nowadays, we are to go so far in short time, or talk with someone who is living away using cellphones or email. Moreover, life speciation for people has rose greatly among the last years. Then, it is possible to think that now life is better.

On the other hand, people are talking about pollution and world heating as consequences of our new lifestyle, companies and enterprises. In additional, now life is quicker and people have less time to spend with family or friends; so some people call the present as: the isolation age. Then all those elements are part of our present and it is important thinking about it when we are talking about out time averages.

Nevertheless, I have not known another age, and it is impossible to me to be sure about what time is the best or the worst to live. I think that human should adapt to change, enjoy good things and try to improve bad stuffs.

In the final analysis, I believe that each time is different and life is changing with interests and discoveries of society; and it is impossible to know which time is better, we only can use better our resources and to try to take the best to improve our life and our environment.
.

Task 1




The graph shows percentages of students that had enough score in their school leaving tests, it report the period 1993-1994 of 9 matter by sex.

Girls had higher scores in 5 subjects (English, Mathematics, Biology, French and History); but they should the biggest difference with boys in English ( around 17%) and French (12%); while in Mathematics, Biology and History the difference between girls and boys was less than 5%.

On the other hand, boys had higher score than girls in 4 matter (Chemistry, Physics, Geography and Craft, Design &Technology) , the main difference between boys and girls was in Craft, Design & Technology with around 8% more boys than girls; whereas Chemistry, Physics and Geography showed low differences.

Matters with the highest number of students who passed school leaving exams were English, Mathematics and French; meanwhile Biology, Chemistry and Physics showed the lowest level. Maybe, students feel easy known subject and that is the reason about their higher level in some subjects than other. Moreover, it is possible that girls have more skills to language and boys to abstract stuff.  

Task 2.

According to a recent study, the more time people use the Internet, the less time they spend with real human beings. Should we worry about the effect this is having on social interaction or should we see the Internet as a way of opening up new communication possibilities worldwide?
What are your views?

Day after day, technology is closer of people’s life, and it is very important chance in our lifestyle in general. The internet is a tool to work, communicate, play, etc. Around the world people are spending more time surfing in the web, and as consequence of it, they have few chances to interact with other in the real life. It will be a debate about if we must be concerned or no related with it.

At first, it is important to remember that during human history the communication ways have been changing, and it is usual to be worried about changes for people. Then, the Internet could be a new way to link for people, and as each single develop, it needs to be accepted, while people find a place of the Internet in their life. It is natural to feel fear about new things, but it is necessary to adapt of these.

On the other hand, the virtual life has a problem which is the rise of isolate people who are alone in their house trying to connect with other alone human. This trouble could carry society by bad way, and we could lose the important idea about how interaction is a road to improve and make sense to the life, because we are focus on objects or virtual stuffs whereas our life is spent in ephemeral things day after day.

Furthermore, the nature of our species is to live in society ad grow up with other who are our model, friend and family. It is important to pay attention and promote face to face meeting as a way to develop and improve our life. However, it is fundamental find a place in people’s life for the Internet and its averages, but not forgetting that it is just a tool, not the center of our life.

In the final analysis, I think that the Internet uses could be or not be a problem depending of how it is took. If the society offer education to people about useful of the internet as a tool, but encouraging them to keep their no virtual life, it will not be a reason to be worried; it would be a problem only if we forget the importance of face to face meeting and promote isolate life.

March 16, 2012

Hi! How are you?

Well, talking about these days, I have been ok. This week I decided to register myself for the conversation course in the British Council, and having a personal teacher. I think that my actually teacher could be perfect to teach me in private, because he is a IELTS’s examiner, and he could help me to be ready in short time; moreover, I believe that anybody could know better if I am ready for the test than a IELTS’s examiner.

It will be expensive, and one of my actually troubles are related with money. Anyway, the most important thing is having enough score in the test to continue with my life. So, it is possible that I will not have some important thing these months, but I hope to have got success in the IELTS soon and continue with my life and my projects.

On the other hand, this week I have not studied as much as past week, because I have been tired or maybe I overstudied and my mind needs a time to relax. I have been checking about preposition and articles; I think it is very important to improve my English level.

Furthermore, I have needed time to think about personal issues.

However, I am here writing, and I will return my study rhythm in short time.

See you soon. 

About March 15.

A year ago, on March 15, 2011, I wrote a post about how I imagined my life in a year. I talked about having a job, playing tennis, living in an apartment in the Auckland City, etc. For that moment, I was absolutely sure about I could go to life to NZ the past year and started my life there. But unfortunately I am still in Venezuela, in Caracas at the moment. So migration process is harder than I guessed a year ago; furthermore I have had a difficult time this year, with health troubles, fell project, etc.

Well, today March 16, 2012 I am here, working hard to get my goal and my dream.

Nowadays I am nearer to go to live there, because I am clearer about what I need to have success and I am focus on that. I am preparing myself to take the IELTS on June 30; I have improved a lot, but I am not ready yet. During this time I have studied almost each single day; at first, I studied alone, then I had a wonderful teacher during two month, and after that I registered myself in the British Council, where I have been studying four months. I will finish this course in a couple of weeks, and I am thinking about too register myself in the conversation course and taking private class with a teacher to be ready for the IELTS soon.

Meanwhile, I am organizing my documentation, it is not ready yet, but it is in process, and almost ready. I hope all those documents will be ready at the moment when I have my IELTS.

The actually plan is, taking the IELTS, send all requirement to the Board of Psychologist NZ, asking for my register; and then go there.

I have had some employment offers, and I hope to have a job with a good relocation packet no longer than November. I would like to start working in December this year.

A year ago, I was inpatient to go there; at the moment, I wish deep down go there soon; but I know that it take time and I want to spend the rest of my life there, so I can wait necessary time.

Again, I hope to in a year to be living in NZ, working there, and having a good lifestyle. I wish to be near of that.

One of iTunes tools: English 2.0 Podcasts


One of iTunes tools: English 2.0 Podcasts
By Tahirí Rojas

It is important to remember that with your iPhone and iPad you have a chance to learn about a lot of things that are limited only by your own interest. Into iTunes you can find help to fix a car, to cook, to learn a new language or to improve your mathematics skills.

In my case, I have been using it to improve my English, and I have found a lot of apps and podcasts. Today I want to tell you about one of them: English 2.0 Podcast which is a good tool if learning English is your goal.

English 2.0 Podcast has been created by Al Slage who wants to help people in Japan to learn English using a new method; anyway they have been downloaded by more than 100,000 people around the world.

Al told me that he had the idea to do a podcast around 4 to 5 years ago, because he just was interested in the new type of media. However, he didn't really know how to start it, but he knew that he wanted to do a video podcast to help communicate his messages more clearly. He never really started it then because he started to do other projects; but he had this growing message inside of him after teaching English in Japan for nearly 10 years. He had seen many students succeed and fail in English for many different reasons and he just wanted to share what he felt were the key reasons for success. Also, he had been studying a lot about success in finance and business, and he wanted to apply these key principles to language learning as well. So, he wanted to help people change their mindsets (particularly in Japan) about English and how to approach it. To him, having the proper mindset and then taking action based on a goal is the true way to reach the next level. That's how he came up with the name English 2.0 Podcast; it was a new way of thinking and looking at English. He said “There are hundreds of English podcasts available but I felt they were mostly the same”. Contrary he wanted to stand out somehow and the way he did that was by sharing success principles and talk about aspects of English that no other podcast had done before.

Nowadays, you can find 15 English 2.0 Podcast in iTunes, and Al makes one per month; they are amazing, and a wonderful tool to improve your English.

Furthermore, if you want to have a free pronunciation course, you can register in his page (http://alsensei.com/ ) and ask for it. There are plenty of possibilities to find videos, podcast, classes and more.

It is a chance to improve your English, and remember in iTunes you have apps for almost whatever you need.

Enjoying the new camera and the New iPad!

Enjoying the new camera and the New iPad!
By Tahirí Rojas




Even if the iPad 2 was on the top of technology from the first day to it was launched to the introduce the New iPad, it had a handicap: it's limited camera. But now, this problem is over.

You can forget the time of mediocre pictures from your iPad. You have a chance to enjoy amazing photos with your New iPad which has incorporated  the ISP (Image Signal Processor) right into the new A5X chip, enabling features like face detection and image stabilization; and packed a five megapixel backside-illuminated sensor, five-element f/2.4 autofocus lens with IR filter which captures videos.

So, it is your time to enjoy your pictures and forget past limitations

What is happening with new iPad and 4G technologies?

What is happening with new iPad and 4G technologies?
By Tahirí Rojas



 One of the highest expectations with the New iPad has been the chance to use 4G telecommunication technology. It is now possible in most of the world; anyway, today Norwegian LTE (Long Term Evolution) has announced that it will not be able to use 4G, because in Norway (and some other Europe areas) 4G network has standards of 800 and 2600 megahertz, while the New iPad offers just 700 and 2100 megahertz.

         Petter Arnstedt who is the Nordic Countries press spokesperson, said: “I can confirm the new iPad will not work on the LTE network.”

         Furthermore, Mobile network provider Netcom confirms, “The new iPad also has support for faster 3G speeds, despite the fact that one cannot take advantage of 4G. NetCom will be launching a 4G router for the private market before the summer, and that will make it possible for iPhone owners to connect to 4G.”

You can have an iPad for cheap!

You can have an iPad for cheap!
By Tahirí Rojas





Have you been dreaming with an iPad and been sad because it is too expensive?

This problem is over now! Apple has diminished the older iPad prices; so you can find the first iPad for $150 US less on refurbished tablet which have nothing wrong, actually it means that it has been checked out again after some time of being use. Moreover, the original iPad (16GB Wi-Fi) is around $299 US, while iPad 2 (16GB Wi-Fi) is listed for  $349 US.

Remember that iPad 2 is still on the top of technology and not too far from the new one, with only some differences in the screen, the camera and other features. But you can find it in lower price than other tablets of basic technological level.

Your patience has paid off; it is your moment to have a cheaper wonderful tablet.

Task 2.

Too much emphasis is placed on testing these days. The need to prepare for test and examinations is a restriction on teachers and also exerts unnecessary pressure on young learners.
To what extend do you agree or disagree?



The education is the key of future; it is the only way to encourage people to improve their life and environment. Actually, in nowadays testing people, specially students is the common way to evaluate learning process and teachers tend to pay a lot of attention on students score as it was the only measure to check the knowledge. It is developing high level of pressure on young learners.

The school has a lot of objectives, but the mean one is to prepare people for the life. In fact, life is sometime very stressful and hard, and it is necessary to have the ability to control difficulties and having success in hard time as well. Then it is possible that the high pressure exerts on children and students about testing is a way to help them to be strong and to learn face future stressful situation.

On the other hand, to force students to learn some specific things in specific time could discourage the creative and become students in knowledge’s consumers conversely to look for develop skills or discover personal abilities. In my opinion, pressing students having good score, you are achieving that them memorize a lot of information, but no necessary to learn or understanding it.

Furthermore, experts have found around the world that open learning process make more intelligent and creative students, because to be relaxed and feeling comfortable is easy to learn and discover new things; so this way to teach is better to develop skills and improve difficulties.

In the final analysis, in my view, even to learn to control stress and pressure is important and necessary, if the goal is developing skills and encourage  the intelligence, it is necessary to decrease of pressure about testing and promote creative process.

March 11, 2012

Hi!

Today was a wonderful day; because my husband and I went to visit a couple of friend who are amazing and relaxed; meeting them is like to go to the beach. They both have the youngest soul I have known, and they are over their seventies.

What does IOS 5.1 offer to us?

http://dailyiphoneblog.com/author/tahir-rojas/


What does IOS 5.1 offer to us?
By Tahirí Rojas




Yesterday was not just a day to launch the new iPad; it was time to introduce IOS 5.1 for iPhone 3, 4, 4S, iPod Touch and iPad 1 and 2.

The majority of 3rd generations of Apple dispositive are asking their owners to download the new IOS 5.1. But what is so good about it? That's a very important question!

The main features of this new operative system are:

·              Deletes individual images from our photo folder iCloud streaming.
·              Access the camera from the lock screen more easily.
·              Displays multiple faces detected in the camera function.
·              Easier navigation in the Podcast section.
·              Redesign of the iPhone's camera function.
·              Improvements in battery performance of the teams IOS.

Is it really that amazing? In my opinion, I woke up this morning and read all news about Apple innovation, I downloaded the new IOS 5.1 and I am still waiting for good news related with the high expectation of past days.

What is the difference between the new iPad and iPad 2?


What is the difference between the new iPad and iPad 2?
By Tahirí Rojas







After a long expectation, at last yesterday Apple launched the new iPad. It is possible to find a lot claims about the new iPad around the world; the most common saying is that the new iPad is not more that a poor actualization of the iPad 2, because it has the same size, color and price.


Anyway, it is time to know the difference and to offer Apple the benefit of the doubt it deserves for the years of innovation and technological revolution that it has given us. The highest differences are:

·              Screen: it has a resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 with a total of 3.1 million pixels.

·              Processor: it is called A5X and the main goal is to make the iPad faster without having to spend the battery.

·              Camera: the backside camera has 5 megapixels and it is able to record HD videos. Furthermore, it includes an image stabilizer, face recognition and the ability to improve snapshots automatically with poor light conditions.

·              Microphone: Apple added an option to dictate voice into the iPad.  For now it is able to recognize English, French, German and Italian.

·              4G: the new iPad can use the LTE communication nets which are faster and more stable than 3G. It could be the beginning of the end of 3G technology.


March 8, 2012

Hi!

Well, today I have spent the whole day studying. It has been fine, because I am very motivate, for the reason that I am improving quick.

At first I was not sure that the IELTS course was a good idea, and still now I think that it is not as good as it could be, as the teacher does not real teaches English, he teaches IELTS tips. Anyway, it is a chance to receive corrections of my writing practice. During this month I have improve a lot in my essays, and it is very stimulate.

So, yesterday I decided to take the IELTS on Jun 30. I think that it could be enough time to have necessary score, or at less around the necessary score.

I don’t have a problem to take the IELTS more than once, but I definitely have problems to take it before to have a chance to approve it.

Then, today I have studying since I woke up, I feel very well. I wrote a couple of news and a Task 1, I will publish the news on a while.

Actually my daily is very bored as my life is at the moment; but remember that my life is stopping to focus on pass the IELTS and continue with my dreams and goals.

See you soon.


Task 1
