Probably the biggest benefit is that all of the teacher’s focus is on your improvement. There aren’t 4 other students in the room with each at their own level and with their own needs. You get all of the focus.
If you spend an hour in a classroom with 3 or 4 (or more) other students you’ll spend most of your time listening and not practicing your own skills. The teachers attention is divided among 3 or 4 other people (at least).
With 1-on-1 instruction, you get to ask all the questions and you get to have all of the practice. There are only two people in the room, you and me.
My focus will be on your sole improvement for the entire lesson! I can hear what you say and correct it. This is the fastest way to improve when compared to multi-student class rooms.
Here is another benefit. I will always have something for us to work on. However, maybe you have something specific for your work, school or social life that needs particular attention.
Since you are the only student, the sole focus is on what you need. You would never be able to have that sole focus in a classroom with 3 or 4 other students. It wouldn’t be fair to dominate the class time that way. The other students probably wouldn’t put up with it either. In the 1-on-1 instruction scenario, the entire time can be devoted to your specific work, school or other needs.
For example, maybe you have a presentation at work that you must give in English. Maybe you have a report or presentation due at school. When you are the only student it is easy for you to get the time to work on what you need. With other students in the room, that just wouldn’t be possible.
In addition to you having the ability to get what you urgently need worked on, I can also customize my lessons towards your needs.
For example, If I know that you need work in a particular area (such as “Th” sounds), I can tailor the lesson for those needs.
I’ll be able to see what we need to work on and focus more on those areas. All of this combines to give you more rapid progress. There is nothing better than learning from a native speaker, except getting one-on-one time with that native speaker!
First, I want to address many of the comments left on the youtube video.
I was surprised to learn that a number of people have some animosity towards Rosetta and I do understand why.
There is virtually no instruction for learning German Grammar. The German grammar is quite complicated. The articles der, die and das are extremely important to sentence structure. Many words inside the sentence will be modified according to these articles as well as Akusativ, Nominativ and Dativ clauses.
This complicated array of grammar is difficult to understand / learn via the Rosetta Stone method.
I have found programs that give you full conversations and then break them down in English to be the best and easiest to follow / learn from.
German Pod has this and it also explains the grammar more than Rosetta Stone. It may not be a complete replacement for formal grammar instruction, but of the methods I have tried, it seems to offer the most promise.
Since you can sign up for a free lifetime membership and there are a lot of good free resources there, it is a great place to start or continue your German language training.
After trying several programs, and having real experience in Germany, I now recommend the GermanPod program
In my youtube video I explained that Rosetta Stone does work but only if…..
Here is the video:
Please keep in mind that Rosetta is expensive and perhaps not as effective as some other methods.
I am currently suggesting that a free account at GermanPod is probably a better way to go
Here is an additional video that shows a few pictures from Germany. Motivation to learn German!
There appears to be quite a bit of debate about the phenomenon known as ‘global warming’. Does it exist or does it not exist?
As in many great debates there appears to be multiple opinions about the issue. A few years ago, Al Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize for his work (film) on global warming. Yet, many scientists have come out to say there is no evidence of global warming. In fact, the prestigious NASA, with its vast array of intellectual capital and high caliber scientists seems to be saying there is no evidence of it.
Then the scandal broke. A flurry of emails were ‘stolen’ and made public. The emails seemed to indicate that someone or some group of people is trying very hard to make a real scientific case for global warming. The emails seemed to show that they were overreaching the normal parameters of real science to come to their ‘conclusion’ and convince others too.
Some people today are too young to remember, including myself, but it has been said that thirty years ago, we were being told that we were headed for an ice age. Now, suddenly we have been alerted that the polar caps are melting, that sea levels will rise and that there will be resultant disaster – unless we spend a lot of money to fix the problem now.
Those watching the debate say that ‘fixing’ the problem means sending an awful lot of money to third world countries. Meanwhile, some of the bigger industrialized countries talk about curbing their emissions, but do not actually appear to be willing to do so. Seems that those countries are not fully convinced that global warming exists or is a problem. If they were convinced, would they not get busy solving the problem?
There appears to be doubt. For the proponents of the global warming phenomenon, it does appear that providing some very definitive proof would benefit them in getting these ‘hold out’ nations to take action.
I am not taking sides within this article. However, I know that there are many people who are very passionate about their position on global warming. You tell me. Is global warming a real phenomenon or not? Why do you think that it is or is not?

The amount your teeth discolor sometimes depends on the kinds of food you eat or the medicines you take. It doesn’t always depend on how many times in a day you brush. Dentists teach proper brushing techniques because they say that improper brushing strokes could do more harm than good especially when done briskly with a hard-bristled brush.
Horizontal Brushing, according to the hygienists, cause scraping of enamel that leads to exposure of the dentin which causes sensitivity and appearance of a darker yellow shade. It looks very undesirable especially today when people may judge you on the appearance of your teeth.
When your teeth are yellow, it looks like something is wrong – they may look decayed and not very attractive to many. Yet, it is not quite right to equate yellow teeth with unhealthy teeth – although the correlation may be there. Appearances can be deceiving.
Bleached teeth could be unhealthy teeth but they look spotless. How many people who bleach often are facing gum recession? This is a question to ask the next time you consider bleaching your teeth.
There are many products on the market intended for whitening. But how do you know if the use of such a product will guarantee the health of your teeth and gums?
Bleaching can reach right into the tooth pulp and in the worst cases can actually kill the tooth. Therefore, the tooth will eventually turn brown and require a crown. Is that the result you are looking for?
Please exercise caution when considering the possibility of whitening your teeth. Patients often want to use budget friendly yet safe and effective products. Brushing alone may not be the answer and teeth whitening products can strip enamel thus leading to hypersensitivity, according to research. Some people have observed that prolonged use of toothpaste with whiteners make there teeth sensitive to cold beverages and to a blow of air directly on their teeth.
Upon looking at pictures of people after a whitening session, the enamel looks really chalky white and rough. One caption says that the teeth are extremely sensitive at this time.
The teeth may look several shades lighter but does that really look attractive? A little tooth discoloration may be fine as long as your teeth are not decaying and your gums are healthy. If the teeth are healthy, then maybe the right answer is to leave them as they are. The bleached look just does not appear natural.
If bleaching or whitening harms the health of the teeth or gums, is it really worth it? Be careful when bleaching teeth.

Aside from being the number one cause of tooth loss, can gum disease kill you? Ongoing research continues to point to the likelihood of a connection between gum disease and other serious diseases such as heart attack, stroke, diabetes, lung infections and low birth weight, pre-term babies. As research continues, it is likely that even more connections will be discovered.
What You Should Know about Gum Disease is truly the layman’s guide to fighting gum disease. Written in easy to understand language, it explains in detail what every human being with gum tissue (everyone) should know. This guide goes beyond mere brushing and flossing and discusses tools, concepts, techniques and knowledge that will help you to defeat gum disease or prevent it from visiting your mouth in the first place.
The author draws upon and shares personal experiences and success in fighting gum disease as well as the struggle to understand what affects so many people today. This is a book written by a layman for the benefit of non professionals as well as professionals around the world.
Gum disease, a plague that has haunted mankind for thousands of years, is still with us today. It doesn’t show any signs of leaving. Low estimates are that forty percent of the human population has some form of gum disease right now. Higher estimates put that number at eighty percent.
A popular clinic’s website indicates that as many as ninety-five percent of the adult population will have some form of gum disease by age sixty-five. Yet, it has also been found in young children. With these odds, chances are high that What You Should Know about Gum Disease will serve you well.
You do not have to accept gumdisease as an inevitable consequence of aging. Learn what you can do, starting today, to begin fighting an existing case of gum disease or preventing gum disease from visiting your mouth in the first place.
If four to eight out of every ten people have some form of gum disease, it is possible that you or someone in your family is one of them. This book promises to provide information that your dentist either did not know or did not have the time to tell you about. In fact, many dentists may learn a few things about gum disease and fighting it that they were previously unaware of.
Endorsed by a periodontist, a dentist, two physicians and one hygienist, What You Should Know about Gum Disease is ever respectful to the dental profession. It always refers the patient back to the doctor and encourages understanding, communication and compliance between them.
In fact, many dentists may want this book in their waiting room to enhance patient education. They may wish to give this book to every new patient who walks through the door to help patients better understand what gum disease is and what they can do about it at home. This will help initiate discussion and a higher degree and willingness for compliance with the doctor’s home care plan. It can not get much better than this for the concerned doctor or the patient!
Even so, What You Should Know about Gum Disease remains layman friendly both in terminology and readability. This is a book that is a helpful companion to the individual. This book is your friend. It is a lifetime companion that you and everyone else should want on the bookshelf. It is truly your guide to fighting gum disease.
Having a winning resume is import. Here is one example. One of the most exciting occupations in the world is acting. Competition is high in this field. Many have trouble ‘making it’. Having a great resume can be crucial to your success in any field!
Learning how to write excellent resumes is something that would only be an aid to your job seeking skill set. Because when you have a great resume, you will be noticed and may even get that crucial interview or audition.
With a resume, you want to list your previous work in chronological order, starting from your most recent assignment or job and going back several years. At the same time, you have limited space. If your list is too long you can say: “more history available upon request”.
A good resume will also list your educational background. This isn’t just limited to traditional schools. You should also list any special training that you have received that would be relevant to the job. Perhaps you have been trained by a well known academy or even an outstanding individual in your field?
You can use bullet points to keep the information in a format that won’t scare away the reader and to make it interesting. You may only have a few moments to make an impression and prevent your resume from going to the circular file.
If you were an actor, you might include training from a local troupe. Or the time you went on a summer ‘camp’ to learn the art of acting further. Next: Follow the links below to learn how you can write a great resume that will get you that job you have been looking for!

Coffee has rescued me when I needed to stay awake!
You know, coffee has turned out to be something I’m starting to turn back to. There was a time when I avoided it like the plague. But now, I’m finding it to be a useful tool for productivity. Sometimes, you HAVE to stay awake!

Italian may be the best of the romantic languages. It is such an expressive and beautiful language complete with powerful hand movements.
In fact, it is a requirement to speak Italian with your hands! No, just kidding, but you sure would think that wouldn’t you?
Much effort has been taken to keep Italian pure and to keep it from devolving into a ‘blended’ language as you may see happening with other languages.
Therefore it is important to be exposed to native Italian speakers (or as close as you can get). But you still need training.
Many people swear by the Rosetta Stone Method.
There are many other decent methods out there. But, when talking to people who have tried the Rosetta stone way, they nearly all agree that not only did it work, but that it is probably the best.
