The temperatures are rising and our students are eager to get outside and enjoy all that the area has to offer.

My Experience in Inlingua
My Experience in Inlingua
I did my internship at Inlingua Washington DC. I worked with Laura Medina, who is the Marketing and Sales Manager. At first, I noticed that Inlingua is a great place to work because the staff members are very friendly and helpful. The environment is great and the students are very friendly to all people. In my internship at Inlingua, I was involved in the Marketing area. I had some great tasks like write on a blog about my experiences, write the feedback for the social activities that I attended, filmed a congratulations video for Inlingua’s partner, Boalingua, among others. But my favorite activity in Inlingua, was to attend the Social Activities. In the Social Activities we have the Conversation Club […]

Trip to New York
Last Friday, December 12 I went to New York City with some friends of the Mexico 100 program. One of the great things of living in Washington DC, is that New York is very close, so you can plan your travel and go to New York very easily. We arrive at 10 pm and we use the metro to get to our Hostel. The metro was very confusing compared to the Metro in Washington DC, so we got late to the Hostel. When we arrived the Hostel, we checked in and went to take a walk near the Hostel and we walked in the Central Park. We returned to the Hostel early because we wanted to get some rest because […]

Visit Washington DC while studying English
Visit to The Pentagon
Last Wednesday the Mexico 100 group went to a visit to The Pentagon that was organized by The Washington Center. We met at the Pentagon Metro Station at 10:30 and we enter at 11. There was a lot of security at the entrance and we had to show our passports to enter. When we enter, we went to the waiting room and I bought some things at the gift shop and took some pictures in there because that was the only place we could take pictures. We were very excited to start the tour because The Pentagon is  the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, so it’s a very important building and very special to visit. The tour was guided by […]

Living in Washington DC
Hi everyone, today I’m going to talk about my experiences of living in Washington DC. I’ve been here at Washington DC for 9 weeks and it has been a great experience. I like living here at Washington DC because it is very peaceful and it is a very beautiful city. Also, because it’s very different from Saltillo that is where I live in Mexico, so everything is different for me. One of the best things in Washington is that it has many museums and historical monuments and most of them are free. I’ve been in many museums and all of them are great. Also I went to a concert in Veteran’s Day and it was great. My favorite museum I would say, […]

The Benefits of Learning a Second Language
Hi everybody, today I’m going to talk about the Benefits of learning a second language. My native language is Spanish. I started to learn English when I was 6 years old in the school at 1st grade. I was in the American School of Saltillo and half of my subjects were in English, so the program was intended to teach English in different subjects, not only the English class. When I was in high school, I realize the importance of knowing a second language such as English, and today I could not agree more. Learning a new language takes time and dedication. Once you do, being fluent in a second language offers numerous benefits and opportunities. Learning a second language […]

Mexico 100 Community-My first blog
My name is Enrique Aguirre and I am from Mexico. I live in Saltillo, Coahuila and I’m a full time student in Universidad Tecnologica de Coahuila. I am studying Mechatronics and I like my career very much. I have been studying English since I was in kindergarten because I went to the American School of Saltillo.

A Mistake is Courage in Disguise: How Our Students Inspire Us
A Mistake is Courage in Disguise: How Our Students Inspire Us
“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” -Albert Einstein Human beings strive to be perfect. Perfection is so highly sought after that people oftentimes steer clear of imperfection in all areas of their life. But trying to be perfect when learning another language will lead to failure. Because the key to successfully learning a new language is based upon acceptance, acceptance that mistakes will be made. With each mistake made, and careful attention to revising those mistakes, a foundation is built towards improvement, and ultimately towards achieving fluency. Consider the apprentice baker under the guidance of a seasoned baker. With support and guidance from the seasoned backer, the apprentice baker must make mistakes when trying […]
