Amor es…

Hablemos del amor de pareja, al mismo tiempo que aprendemos un poquito más de español. Amor es …

Let’s talk about that love between partners, at the same time we learn a little bit more of Spanish. Love is…

…descubrir las virtudes de la otra persona y enfocarse en estas virtudes para fortalecer este sentimiento.

…to discover the virtues of the other person and to focus on these virtues in order to strength this feeling.

La intimidad es lograr conocerse mutuamente.

Intimacy is to get to know each other.

Two words that say it all: “Te Amo”

In Spanish you just need two words to say “I love you”:” TE AMO”

*Important note: Some translations are literal. When you see the literal translation, you can start feeling the language and understanding the mentality and “la cosmovisión” of the native speaker. It helps you start thinking in Spanish language!

Last weekend I met an inspiring couple that were celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary. She said the main reason they were together, it was that her husband believed in marriage. He said SHE was the main reason they were together all of these years, and start talking about all her achievements in life, as a person, and as a professional, which showed how mesmerized he was with her and how much he admires and respects her. But I loved when he started his talk saying: First of all, to be married for 60 years, you need to be alive for such a long time! J

Rihanna realmente engalanó la noche de la quincuagésimo quinta presentación de los premios Grammy hoy. Ella cantó “I want you to stay”- “Quiero que te quedes”. Ella llevó un vestido largo azul noche que contrastó muy bien con sus labios y uñas rojas. Su micrófono con un delicado acabado en dorado brilló con su magnifica voz.

19 presentaciones hicieron de esta edición del Grammy, una noche inolvidable.

“Fun” ejecutó una gran presentación con Carry on, y finalmente se otorgó los premios a canción del año con “We are young”- “Somos jovenes”  y mejor artista nuevo

Una de las presentaciones mas esperadas fue la de Justin Timberlake quien regresaba al mundo de la música despues de cuatro años. Como lo dijo Beyonce al anunciarlo, “Justin es un hombre que nació para cantar” y realmente no solo cantóo, sino también encantó.

Bruno Mars encabezó el elenco que rindió un merecido tributo a Bob Marley.

Definitivamente el vestido que impacto mas en esta presentacion de los premios Grammy fue el vestido de Carrie Underwood.

Jeff Sussman  Film Industry.

Katina Glancy  Art Teacher

 

“I can not begin to tell you how pleased I have been with her teaching…..my Spanish ability was quite limited, having only taken 2 years at the high school level, Ms. Miranda helped me to catch up to the Spanish 4 level….. In an hour lesson with Ms. Miranda I have learned and stored into permanent memory what would have take me a week to learn in my UCLA Spanish class”

John Siegel – University Student

 

“….She identified his needs and very creatively sought to meet the goals for the year engaging Ben with activities designed specifically for him.

“Dalila Miranda proved to be an excellent investment for my husband and I. We had a series of lessons with her to prepare for a trip to Argentina….Dalila tailored her lessons to fit our individual needs. The purpose of our trip was to look at real estate in Buenos Aires. Not only did she verse us in technical terms we would find useful,…..Another aspect of Dalila’s instruction we found helpful is her vast knowledge of Central and South American culture. There were a number of times during our trip that we would have been lost were it not for information given to us by Ms. Miranda. This, combined with her hands-on approach to learning, made our time with Dalila invaluable”

Desiree  Adams – Business

“Dalila was my Spanish language instructor for a Spanish immersion course I took a little while ago. I really enjoyed her teaching style and it really blew me away how much I learned just within these few days of class. She was focused on conversation and had a technique of teaching that was simple enough for me to understand and also easy for me to retain and use what I learned. It is incredible and I did not expect that I would learn as much as I did in just a few days of immersion, and I think that is a great way to learn the language. I am grateful for that class and for her patience, passion, and dedication too :)” Posted on my LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/pub/dalila-miranda/14/553/117
