Well, I guess it’s my turn, and after Marina’s inspired introduction, I will try to measure up to hers.My name is Valter, and I was the second one to join the team, a little after Marina. Or should I say, the one who caught the Myngle bug right after her… The great thing about the […]

I think I can speak for the entire Myngle group when I say we are getting pretty excited as launch date comes closer. Our team is increasing, more cool people joining, more interesting personal backgrounds, more quality and competence for you!

How do you want your learning?

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

Do you want your learning process to have music, audio, quizzes, writing assignments, role plays? How do you learn best? Howard Gardner described the now much debated “Theory of Multiple Intelligences” which notes that people learn differently through a set of different intelligences: “linguistic, logical-mathematical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal. and naturalistic.” This implies that […]

“No pain, no gain?”

Thursday, July 12th, 2007

Going through my daily web surfing I found a nice sentence on Wikipedia’s Second Language Acquisition page: “The process of language learning can be very stressful, and the impact of positive or negative attitudes from the surrounding society can be critical.” Please try to recall your school days, which were your top-grade subjects?

Some philosophical thoughts… about differences and languages

Saturday, July 7th, 2007

“All the time we are aware of million of things around us, aware of these things but not really conscious of them unless there is something unusual or unless they reflect something we are predisposed to see.

It still amuses me at how well and how easy communication has become with the web 2.0 tools. Last year I though it would be extremely difficult to have business contact with someone 2 hours away from where I live. With the web tools we have now, its almost too easy. Yesterday I had meetings […]

Learning a Language

Wednesday, July 4th, 2007

Learning a language could be very similar to learning math. First, pictures are associated with a sign for example: an apple = 1, two oranges = 2, and so forth. After the basic numbers are learned, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,… 9 the rest of the numbers are all derived from their logical combination. […]

The first day of Myngle

Wednesday, July 4th, 2007

This is the first post for Myngle. Not really the first day, but we’ll go back to the past in the next postings and follow the road that brought us here. Even a marathon starts with just one step. One night I knew it was there. It was just an idea, but already more than […]
