Spanglish didactic unit[1]

  1. 1. Spanglish: To ser or not to be; That is la cuestion
  2. 2. Reading: Don Quixote de la Mancha made in USA Pre-reading. Have you ever heard talking in Spanglish? Do you know what does it exactly mean? Where can we find this “language”? While-reading. Underline all the words in the text that are in Spanglish. Write down which would be the English and Spanish words for them. Post-reading. Have you liked the Spanglish version of Don Quixote de la Mancha? Do you think it is easier to understand that the original one?
  3. 3. In un placete de La Mancha of which nombre no quiero remembrearme, vivia, not so long ago, uno de esos gentlemen who always tienen una lanza in the rack, una buckler antigua, a skinny caballo y un grayhound para el chase. A cazuela with mas beef than mutn, carne choppeada para la dinner, un omelet pa los Sabados, lentil pa los Viernes, y algun pigeon como delicacy especial pa los Domingos, consumian tres cuarers de su income. El resto lo employaba en una coat de broadcloth y en soketes de velvetn pa los holidays, with sus slippers pa combinar, while los otros dias de la semana el cut a figura de los mas finos clothes. Livin with el eran una housekeeper en sus forties, una sobrina not yet twenty y un ladino del field y la marketa que le saddleaba el caballo al gentleman y wieldeaba un hookete pa podear. El gentleman andaba por alla por los fifty. Era de complexion robusta pero un poco fresco en los bones y una cara leaneada y gaunteada. La gente sabia that l era un early riser y que gustaba mucho huntear. La gente say que su apellido was Quijada or Quesada hay diferencia de opinion entre aquellos que han escrito sobre el sujeto but acordando with las muchas conjecturas se entiende que era really Quejada. But all this no tiene mucha importancia pa nuestro cuento, providiendo que al cuentarlo no nos separemos pa nada de las verd. Don Quixote de La Mancha made in the USA
  4. 4. It is known, pues, que el aformencionado gentleman, cuando se la pasaba bien, which era casi todo el ao, tenia el habito de leer libros de chivaldria with tanta pleasura y devocion as to leadearlo casi por completo a forgetear su vida de hunter y la administracion de su estate. Tan great era su curiosidad e infatuacion en este regarde que el even vendia muchos acres de tierra sembrable pa’ comprar y leer los libros que amaba y carreaba a su casa as many as él podía obtuvir. Of todos los que devore, ninguno le plase mas que los compuestos por el famoso Feliciano de Silva, who tenía una estylo lucido y plotes intrincados that were tan preciados para las pearlas; especialmente cuando readeaba esos cuentos de amor y challenges amorosos that se foundean por muchos placetes, por example un passage como this one: La rason de mi unrason que aflicta mi rason, en such a manera weakenea mi rason que yo with rason lamento tu beauty. Y se sintioó similarmente aflicteado cuando sus ojos cayeron en la neas como these ones: el high Heaven de tu divinidad te fortifiquea with las estrellas y te rendea worthy de ese deserveo que tu greatness deserva.
  5. 5. Vocabulary: Spanglish words Una senora deja su bolso de nobuk en el del hall del club empresarial donde voy a dar un . En el me saluda el presidente de un holding que fabrica , y me presenta al director de marketing, el cual afirma trabajar full y manifiesta estar obsesionado por el exceso de stocks , por lo que ha decidido montar un stand en la feria sectorial.  Think of a English word for each picture.  Now, using some of the following words write sentences in Spanglish as above. Carpetero, estato , faxear , ganga, gruero, janguear, landear migra, pana, quitear, yarda, aiscrim
  6. 6. Writing: Is Spanglish good or bad? PROS CONS The term Spanglish is used to refer a range of language-contact phenomena, primarily in the speech of the Hispanic population of the United States, which is exposed to both Spanish and English. These phenomena are a product of close border contacts or large bilingual communities, such as along the United States- Mexico border and throughout Southern California, northern New Mexico, Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and in New York City. Even though it is very common to hear people talking in Spanglish, this “language has been criticized by many conservative people that want to preserve the Spanish language in its original form. However, if Spanglish helps people to communicate, where is the disadvantages? Write down all the pros and cons of the use of Spanglish.
  7. 7. Transcription: To ser or not to be; That is la cuestionAs we have said, spanglish is a variety of Spanish characterized by many borrowings from English. Here you have a dialogue in Spanglish. Try to put it in English and Spanish. Anita: "Hola, good morning, como estas?" Mark: "Well, y tu?" Anita: "Todo bien. Pero tuve problemas parqueando mi carro this morning." Mark: "Si, I know. Siempre hay problemas parqueando in el area at this time".
  8. 8. Listening: Spanglish Pre-listening. Can you think of any situation where we can hear spanglish? What do you think it will happen if a Mexican goes to work to the States and does not speak English? Will they be able to communicate between each other? While-listening: Write down situations in which communication is difficult between Flor and the American family and how they solve it. Post-listening: Can you think of a different ending? What would you have done to communicate if you had been Flor? Which has been your favourite scene?
  9. 9. Grammar point: Reported Speech You can answer the question "What did he/she say?" in two ways: by repeating the words spoken (direct speech) by reporting the words spoken (indirect or reported speech). Direct Speech Direct speech repeats, or quotes, the exact words spoken. When we use direct speech in writing, we place the words spoken between inverted commas ("....") and there is no change in these words. Examples: She says "What time will you be home?" Reported Speech Reported speech is usually used to talk about the past, so we normally change the tense of the words spoken. We use reporting verbs like 'say', 'tell', 'ask', and we may use the word 'that' to introduce the reported words. Inverted commas are not used. She said, "I saw him." She said that she had seen him. 'That' may be omitted: She told him that she was happy. She told him she was happy. 'Say' and 'tell': Use 'say' when there is no indirect object: He said that he was tired.
  10. 10. Reported Speech Exercise Convert the phrases below into reported speech. "It's raining," she said. 1______________________________________________ He said to her, "I love you.“ 2______________________________________________ "I saw Maria in the supermarket yesterday," said  Carlos. 3______________________________________________ "We've lived here for three years," he said. 4______________________________________________ "I'll bring a pasta salad," said Francesca. 5______________________________________________ "Mark's going to install solar panels," said Miranda. 6______________________________________________ "They found gold here," said the geology teacher. 7______________________________________________ "Jenny can't speak French," said Pierre. 8______________________________________________ "I first met my wife in Seville," he told us. 9______________________________________________ "I want your homework handed in by tomorrow," he said. 10______________________________________________ "My mother made these cakes," said Juan. 11______________________________________________ "I'm feeling tired now," said David. 12______________________________________________ DIRECTREPORTED is seeing-was seeing/see-ssaw/saw- saw/ had seen-has seen/had seen-will see would see/is going to see- was going to see/can see-could see DIRECTREPORTED Here-there/this-that/these-those/now- then/ Today-that day/yesterday-the previous day/ Tomorrow-the next day

  15. 15. Speaking: Foreign or not foreign?  In groups of four, make a list of all the foreign words or phrases that we use in our daily life. Are they now part of our own language? Why do you think we increasingly use these foreign words? Is it possible to communicate when you use them? And if you dont use them? Here you have some examples: hall, software, shopping, footing, light, email, chatear…
  16. 16. Reading: The tower of Babel While-reading. How did God feel about man's rebellion? How did man feel about following God's command to spread out? How do you think the people felt when they realized they couldn't understand each other? Pre-reading. Do you know what a language is? Can you try to give a definition of it? Do you speak any other languages apart from your mothers tongue? Say some words in others languages. Now, draw a tower and write on it all the names of the languages you know or you have heard about.
  17. 17. Our lesson begins with the time when everyone on earth spoke the same language. But according to the Genesis something happened to change all of that. Today we have many different kinds of languages. Can you name some of them? Some cities even have television stations which speak only Spanish. That?s because they have so many people there who speak Spanish. When you are older, you may want to study different languages. Let?s find out where they all came from. Noah lived 350 years after the flood. He was 950 years old when he died. Noah?s sons Shem, Ham and Japheth had children of their own. Their families were the beginning of all families in the world today. As more and more people were born into the families of Shem, Ham and Japheth, the number of people on earth increased. If you had been a father or mother in those times, what would you have told your children about God? Yes, you probably would have told them about the great flood. Whenever there was a rainbow, you would have reminded them of God?s promise that the world would never again be covered by water. Reading: The tower of Babel
  18. 18. We know that many parents did hand down a knowledge of the great flood to their children. We have stories from countries in Noah?s part of the world which show this. This should have helped people in later years know God. They should have realized Someone who could bring such a great flood was a God of power. They should have feared Him and have wanted to give Him honor. But something happened that shows how easily people forget God and His way for them. Up until that time everyone spoke the same language. They seemed to stay together in a group. The Bible tells us they came to a plain called Shinar and decided to build a city. They said, ?Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.? Since they knew how to make brick and use slime for mortar, they thought nothing could stop them. The Bible does not tell us a lot about this city and tower, but we know the people wanted it for the wrong reason - - they were trying to be important in their own sight instead of trusting God for what is best. The Bible says that God did not like what was happening. He decided to do something that would stop their building. God said, ?Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another?s speech.? The Bible says that God scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth. The City and tower that were supposed to reach up to heaven were never finished. After all, how could people work together when they were speaking different language? They surely could not help each other if they couldn?t understand what they were saying. They named the city Babel, because there was such a confusion of speech there. Post-reading. Comprehension questions. Individually, answer the following questions: A. God told men to build a tower. B. The men wanted to glorify God with their tower. C. God gave man different languages to separate them. D. The tower was completed. A. Man spread across the earth. Act out the people when they suddenly couldn't understand each other
  19. 19. The languages of the World The Indo-European Family The non-Indo-European Family Speaking: The languages of the World In groups of three, try to guess in which group do the following languages belong to Languages isolated/ Germanic/Australia/ Tai- Kadai/Italic/Celtic/Uto- Aztecan/Hellenic/Athapaskan/Slavic/Baltic/Indo- Iranian/Albanian/Armenian/Afro- Asiatic/Uralic/Mongol/Turkic/Sino- Tibetan/Austroasiatic/Austronesian/Japanese/
  20. 20. Listening: Babel Pre-listening. If you read the title of this film. What do you think about? What do you think this film will talk about? Who will be the characters? Now read this review: In the remote sands of the Moroccan desert, a rifle shot rings out-- detonating a chain of events that will link an American tourist couple’s frantic struggle to survive, two Moroccan boys involved in an accidental crime, a nanny illegally crossing into Mexico with two American children and a Japanese teen rebel whose father is sought by the police in Tokyo. Separated by clashing cultures and sprawling distances, each of these four disparate groups of people are nevertheless hurtling towards a shared destiny of isolation and grief. In the course of just a few days, they will each face the dizzying sensation of becoming profoundly lost--lost in the desert, lost to the world, lost to themselves--as they are pushed to the farthest edges of confusion and fear as well as to the very depths of connection and love. While-listening. Write down all the elements you find in this film that the characters have in common or the common situations you may find. Post-listening. Talk to your partner about the scene you have liked most.
  21. 21. Only 1 language: ESPERANTO What if everybody spoke the same language…
  22. 22. 1. WHAT IS ESPERANTO? Esperanto is a language designed to facilitate communication between people of different lands and cultures. It was first published in 1887 by Dr. L. L. Zamenhof (1859-1917) under the pseudonym "Dr. Esperanto", meaning "one who hopes", and this is the name that stuck as the name of the language itself. Esperanto is considerably easier to learn than national languages, since its design is far simpler and more regular. Also, unlike national languages, Esperanto allows communication on an equal footing between people, with neither having the usual cultural advantage favoring a native speaker. Esperanto's purpose is not to replace any other language, but to supplement them: Esperanto would be used as a neutral language when speaking with someone who doesn't know one's own language. The use of Esperanto would also protect minority languages, which would have a better chance of survival than in a world dominated by a few powerful languages. Reading: Esperanto While-Reading. Read the text quickly and answer these questions: 1)Who invented Esperanto? 2)What´s the meaning of the Word “Esperanto”? 3)What is the purpose of Esperanto?
  23. 23. 2.-WHERE DOES ESPERANTO'S VOCABULARY COME FROM? About 75 % of Esperanto's vocabulary comes from Latin and Romance languages (especially French), about 20 % comes from Germanic languages (German and English), and the rest comes mainly from Slavic languages (Russian and Polish) and Greek (mostly scientific terms). The words derived from Romance languages were chosen to be as recognizable as possible throughout the world. For example, the word "radio", although technically Romance, is now used internationally. Someone knowing only Russian and looking at a text in Esperanto would immediately recognize perhaps 40 % of the words, without even having studied the language. Esperanto is phonetic: every word is pronounced exactly as it is spelled. There are no "silent" letters or exceptions. While-Reading. Read the text quickly and answer these questions: 1)Where does the vocabulary come from? 2)What is the main feature of Esperanto in terms of speaking?
  24. 24. 3. WHAT ABOUT ESPERANTO'S GRAMMAR AND WORD-ORDER? Even more than its vocabulary, it is Esperanto's grammar and rules which makes it exceptionally easy. Unnecessary complications have been eliminated: there is no grammatical gender, the word order is relatively free, etc. The rules have also been simplified as much as possible: there is only one verb conjugation, all plurals are formed the same way, a prefix can be added to any word to change it to its opposite (good/bad, rich/poor, right/wrong), and so on. Thus, after perhaps 30 minutes' study, one can conjugate any verb in any tense. This is a tremendous simplification compared to national languages. Esperanto's flexible word-order allows speakers from different language families to use the structures with which they are most familiar and still speak perfectly intelligible and grammatically correct Esperanto. This also makes Esperanto an excellent translator of such different languages as Chinese, Japanese, Latin, English and French. While-Reading. Read the text quickly and answer these questions: 1)Is word order fixed in Esperanto?
  25. 25. Role-play Each of you are a person from a Spanish-spoken language. You come to the States to work. As your english language skills are not very good, you start communicating in your own”Spanglish. With a video camara record the dialogues you have with american people, you will have fun watching it. To ser or not to ser; that is la cuestion
