I wear this badge with pride and Joy. I entered this challenge with a lot of doubts about my capabilities. Writing in a foreign language in a blog community of English Teachers…
But, I took a deep breath, and I did it. It was a very rewarding experience. Not only because I could write each day and communicate in a language different of my own, but also because I get to know this beatiful community and felt part of it.
As regards the teaching practice, I found very enlightening all the blog writing process (from the creation through the participation in the community). I feel that I’m a better commenter and that It’s a plus for feedback training.
I really appreciate the Welcome Wagon idea and the persons who incarnated it. That support was essential for me.
Another great idea was Jennifer’s #MultiFriday. I love languages in all their diversity and think that as a teacher that we have to encourage contact between language because It is above all contact between people.
Like I said in the feedback form about my journey through this challenge:
It had a major impact on my writing skills. I feel more confident and been able to know better my strong points and my flaws: I really have to work on my spelling (Thank God to the spelling correctors), in the prepositions (never never put the correct one), correct my “muy” and “de” instead of “my” and “the”, and of course de verb correlation. I’m sorry, I’m a Spanish teacher and It isn’t easy for me not to identified grammar errors. But fortunately, These not inhibited my writing this month and that is the magic of this beautiful community.
