American Sabor

On February 9, students from both ESL classes met at the Bob Bullock Museum for the American Sabor exhibit. The bilingual exhibit demonstrated the influence of Latino rhythms on rock music in the U.S. It showed major Latino influences in the music of New York, Miami, San Antonio, and Los Angeles with videos, interactive listening and mixing booths, and rhythm instruments to try for a real hands-on experience.

Translate It

I've added a link to the ESL links on the right for Google Translator. You can Copy and Paste any text or website address into the translator box, choose your language, and have a pretty good translation of the text or website. Try it with this message:
  1. Drag the pointer across all of the text to select it.
  2. Right click, and choose Copy
  3. Go to Google Translator
  4. Right click, and choose Paste
  5. Choose languages to translate from and to
  6. Click Translate
Now try it with the whole blog. Paste in the translator text box and see what happens. Be patient. It's a big blog, so it may take awhile.
