¿Quieres mejorar la ortografía?

Siempre hacemos mucho hincapié con nuestros hijos en la importancia de no cometer faltas de ortografía. Últimamente estamos algo preocupados por la perdida de puntos en los exámenes por tal motivo.

Nos preguntábamos que poder hacer para ayudarles, además de todas esas cosas que todos sabemos, lectura, dictados…

Pues bien, buscando en internet nos encontramos con una plataforma que ha parecido muy interesante y que queremos compartir con vosotros.

Se trata de Walinwa, creemos que hasta ahora es la única plataforma digital para alumnos desde 3º de Primaria a 2º de Bachillerato. Se trabaja tanto la ortografía como en el vocabulario y la comprensión lectora, tan solo con una dedicación diaria de alrededor de 10 minutos. Se complementa  con divertidos juegos en los que los alumnos, además de divertirse, siguen mejorando la ortografía.

Es un método individualizado que se va adaptando al nivel, a la evolución y al proceso de aprendizaje de cada alumno, respetando los ritmos de madurez. Pone especial énfasis en los temas ortográficos que necesiten mejorar o reforzar.

En el enlace adjunto se accede a un vídeo que muestra con más detalle en qué consisten las sesiones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYpi8d6cO-I

Y en este otro enlace puedes acceder a un dosier que muestra algunas de las pantallas de los ejercicios presentados y que ofrece una breve explicación de lo que garantiza la metodología http://www.walinwa.com/index.php/dosier-walinwa/.

Si prefieres probar previamente mediante sesiones particulares, desde la citada página web puedes crearte de forma completamente gratuita durante 10 días los usuarios de los niveles que mejor se adapten a tus necesidades. Para ello simplemente pulsa en el menú la opción «Nuevo usuario».

Esperamos que os resulte útil.

Saludos.

 

CHANGING MY LIFE

When I started to work in Barclays Bank, where I worked for 24 years, I thought that I was going to retire there. But you never know, life changes constantly.

I was a happy hard worker,  I grew personally and professionally. My life was my job and it had its rewards. I had the pleasure of directing different branch offices in Madrid. I worked with fabulous people, I met fantastic customers and I learned  many things, things that I will use now.

I have 3 children, when my 2 first children were born I continued working full time, I didn´t see them grow, but I accepted it although I knew I could  never recover that time.

After 5 years, I was pregnant again, it was a desired pregnancy, when the baby  was born I thought  I wanted to live his infancy very much and then I decided to take maternal leave. I dedicated myself to spend two years only  with my family.

At that time we traveled  to Canada. There I learned that people were interested in our country and in our language, it was a great surprise to me. After Canada we went to Ireland, where our children went to school and I took an English course while my husband taught Spanish.

Ireland was wonderful , a great experience in our life, we learned many, many important things and we have  great memories from there.  During that time I started to think about my life, about my job, about  my family, I was looking for another kind of life . I  was happy, with  less things, really happy actually.

I learned that my own country and my language were more valuable to me than I had thought. In Ireland, we met many people interested in our language and in our country. Not only the beaches, but also the cities, the mountains, the monuments….

In Ireland I went to an English course in a small school , a family school in their own home.  They were fantastic and  friendly people, they were like our  family. Their teachers were very professional and I was lucky to be their friend . I fell in love with  that  business.

When we came back to Spain, I started to work part time in my old company,  but I was not the same person any more, I wanted another life. I thought about that wonderful and small school all the time. I got the idea  to continue  showing our country and our language abroad.

I summed everything up about this experience and I got to the conclusion that I wanted to have my own language school, but How?. I started to research, and little by little I discovered  it.  However, I had a good job and was impossible to leave it. In that precise time  the company opened a dismissing peoples process, and it was my moment.

I left Barclays Bank with sadness after many years, but with many hopes, enthusiasm and motivation to create my own company.

Now, I am here.
