    Smell my Foot

    Johne, I am a certified translator FROM Spanish INTO English (not vice versa) but I reckon I could help since it's a kid's book. If you still need help, can you tell me how many paragraphs of text it is, roughly? Or how many pages (and how many sentences per page)?

    Smell my Foot

    No, it's not related to 'usted'. It's the imperative, like 'Close the door'. You are directing someone to do something.

    Smell my Foot

    Wouldn't it be the imperative? Huele mi pie FYI: OLER is the infinitive (like VIVIR or TOMAR or QUERER) HUELE is the conjugated form but they are the same verb.

    Why can't the Dominican Republic be the solution to the crisis in Haiti?

    I meant Port-au-Prince :-)

    Coronavirus - In the DR

    Yes. My posts seem to be deleted as well. Even sometimes those that mention THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. It's sort of arbitrary. If your post isn't directly mentioning the DR, even if it's a totally natural response or development of the thread, it will be deleted. Unless you are a moderator who...

    Why can't the Dominican Republic be the solution to the crisis in Haiti?

    I don't know, this was in POP. It was what I was told.

    Why can't the Dominican Republic be the solution to the crisis in Haiti?

    I did some volunteer work in Haiti and met little kids who had been incarcerated; my understanding is that people can be jailed for being homeless and numerous other reasons. I think our conception of what a 'convict' is like doesn't apply to the Haitian environment. Maybe someone with more...

    Coronavirus - In the DR

    From the New York Post (and multiple other publications): WHO warns against COVID-19 lockdowns due to economic damage The global poverty rate is expected to DOUBLE due to the lockdowns. DOUBLE. If this mess has sent the Canadian middle class spiralling, imagine the impact on the DR, Haiti...

    Crowds over the weekend could revert Covid-19 downward trends

    Indeed. The 1.5 million deaths per year from TB is a good example; it's an EXTREMELY contagious disease that truly IS spread by aerosol and NO-ONE wears a mask. I am not sure of the stats for TB in DR, but it's a massive problem in Haiti and elsewhere. No lockdowns, no masks, no nothing...

    RD was my backup plan, but who knows?

    Colombia's beaches are just not that attractive, they have that greyish brown sand and they just look dirty all the time. Isla Blanca off the coast of Cartagena is more of the white sand, turquoise water type of beach, but you have to take a boat to get there and San Andres is wayyyyy off the...

    Police raided the Li'l League field today

    Amen. And exercising in the sunshine is a wonderful way to strengthen the immune system. We are living in an insane asylum, IMO.

    How will kids that are 6 or 7 years old learn to read and write? Add 2 +2 ?

    Thank you! I love teaching but it's not for everyone. May we all find our niche!

    How will kids that are 6 or 7 years old learn to read and write? Add 2 +2 ?

    Good for you! It would be super helpful to find some resources to work with - you need a framework and structure. K-12 in the DR is not my area but maybe some others could provide you with some useful links?

    How will kids that are 6 or 7 years old learn to read and write? Add 2 +2 ?

    There are many resources available for homeschooling. The problem would be accessing the materials and for the little ones, they need a teacher. It depends how involved you want to get. You could purchase, download and print the materials - you could probably also find free resources online...

    Indotel director: Public schools need to rely on radio and TV programs

    So in the end it seems the DR is following Mexico's model of using the TV and radio to educate the students during the 'pandemic'. Very sad, but not surprising. The new generation will pay the cost for this year's events - traumatized by the fear mongering and poorly socialized and educated...

    Coronavirus - In the DR

    Isn't best practices to ISOLATE THE SICK? NOT THE HEALTHY? It's been terrifying to see people's ability to use common sense degrade in the face of all the fear porn we've been fed. Also, according to your post, masks have been used to reduce community spread for THOUSANDS OF YEARS...

    Cotui announces lockdown as of 2pm

    And are there many diagnosed, asymptomatic cases, pray tell? It defies logic that they are referring to diagnosed, asymptomatic cases in a climate where there is mass confusion and a shortage of tests around the world. I think it's pretty obvious that they are speculating that there are many...
