If you were interested, key, rocco who has corrected your `post would sure be able to come up with explanations of your errors. Only way to learn in my humble opinion.
Certainly. I offered no explanations at the time because it appears to me that keybordr's level of Spanish is sufficient (pretty good, actually) to understand the corrections.
I apologize if I made her feel uncomfortable. My motive was simply to be helpful, as many have been and continue being with me. These forums are a semi-anonymous arena in which to learn, unlike a classroom. And with language especially, we have to make mistakes and be corrected to be able to see the differences (break the faulty connections) between our own language and the new one. (Heidita already commented on this.)
I assumed that since Mrs. keybordr is a teacher herself, with undoubtedly at least one degree to her credit, she would be comfortable, or at least familiar, with working through questions/problems in a group setting with correction/guidance offered by the professor along the way.
It used to be that students didn't take correction as a personal offense. However, with the "new learning" being pushed in this country, we are instructed not to tell "Johnny" that he is "wrong" if he says 2 + 2 = 5, lest we crush or damage his fragile sense of "self-worth." We are instructed instead to praise Johnny for his "uniqueness" of "self-expression." Our educational system is so focused on inculcating political correctness anymore that we exclude educating about any other kind of "correctness," be that mathematical, scientific, or linguistic. And perish the thought of even mentioning moral or ethical correctness!
Sorry, keybordr. It looks like you made soapboxes a popular thing on this thread.
We do not judge people on any kind of posts or frequency or ANYTHING at all on this site. We just try to help and Eric was trying to be kind by welcoming you.
This is a learning site and we do think the forum which accompanies the lessons like on no other forum, is a great tool to learn. You should continue posting...in Spanish!
Absolutely, keybordr! You are doing great. And I certainly didn't mean anything negative about your level of posting; I was just pointing out to Eric that some industrious people don't have hours a day to sit and post to this forum like a high school student on summer break does, and the fact that he hasn't seen you post before doesn't mean that you are not a long-standing, appreciated member of this forum.
We hope to see you as often as you are able on this forum, as we appreciate the valuable contribution of another member of the education field.
