Online education! but…

OnlineEducationMy Professional degree requires that I maintain specific hours of CPE (Continuing Professional Education) every year.

Being at home during the lockdown, I’m trying to increase the amount of webinars and online classes I’m attending for CPE purposes.

“INCREASE THE AMOUNT”.. hmm.. this has some consequences….

One of the sessions I registered lately was managed by SheLeadsTech. Of course, I haven’t paid much attention for that then nor did I read the details fully. So, when the virtual conference started, I was embarrassed that I was the only male there!!

Well, I’m grateful to have an opportunity to attend such a valuable session – no body kicked me out because I’m male… AND, thanks to my wife and my daughter for giving me time to explain the situation, i.e, engaging with some beautiful ladies in front of the screen of my laptop! hehehe

The first one…

Apple and Google are unifying their efforts to trace people to protect them and society from the infection!!!

“Goodbye to our privacy” seems to be the first result or consequence of Corona!


Utilizing Technology in learning a language

- Posted in Uncategorized by

UtilizingTechnologyLearningLanguageI’m a big fan of self learning. During this period, I’m very busy with many things including learning Italian!

The most famous apps in this field are Busuu and Duolingo. Yet subscription isn’t really needed, the cost is very affordable.

I used to love Duolingo more as it has its own way to force you memorizing words… However, after the recent update, Busuu is more convenient to me – not to mention its social part. You won’t go wrong with either. Don’t expect to be fluent using any or both though. It’s just a good start, up to intermediate level!

Additionally, I’m using those two ebooks:

  • Complete Italian Grammar by Marcel Danesi
  • Essential Italian Grammar by Olga Ragusa

A notebook with a pen/cil is required of course. So, an iPad is plus!

I remember when I was learning English, there were many books (hard copies) along with audio cassettes and the notebooks in addition to a whole bunch of colored pens. Have I mentioned the size of the dictionary?! I needed a big bag then… Now, it’s only my iPad with the wireless AirPods!
