Getting a job using your second language

3061

Knowing other languages in a world that, thanks to globalization, has forced people to be bilingual and almost makes them forget their mother tongue, definitely comes in handy when looking for a new job.

 

Numbers do not lie, today, nearly 60% of the job offers require the candidate to master a second language. English and German are taking the lead in the list for the most popular languages required by employers, especially in the areas of engineering, finance, new technologies and health.

However, according to recent surveys from Adecco and the Center for Sociological Research (CIS) in Spain, five languages will prevail among job seekers in 2016. To our surprise, these languages are: Italian, Portuguese, German, French, and the ever-present English. 

An astounding 89.5% of current job offers require a second language, so it is time to get enrolled in the language course of your choice. French is on the list due to the fact that it is the official language of over 30 countries and as one of the five official languages in the United Nations; it also stands out in the touristic and pharmaceutical areas. German — or Europe’s second most spoken language—, stands out in the tourism sector, as well as those languages mentioned above. Perhaps the most shocking fact about this list is to see the “nonna’s” mother tongue on it. Italian has had an impressive boom these last years in Europe, especially in Spain. Brazil’s peak as a first-power economy in Latin America led them to appear in this list, and the fact that it is the official language in six countries. The near future looks very promising for Portuguese.

Do we really need say something more to convince you to go ahead and learn a second language? If you need a little extra motivation, Laura Centeno, Country Manager for People Working, indicates that a bilingual person could earn 20% more than those who speak only one language.

LA HISTORIA DEL PILATES

75d4a15236bff282fa156db685504e74

Me encanta y no sólo ayuda mis dolores de espalda, sino que estoy mas fuerte y en forma. Como la periodista que soy, no puedo dejar de investigar sobre los temas que me interesan, así que aquí les dejo algunos datos sobre LA HISTORIA DEL PILATES.

<Joseph Hubertus Pilates nació en  Alemania en 1883. Cuando era niño, Joe tenía asma y otras dolencias. Se volvió hacia el ejercicio y el atletismo para combatir estas dolencias y siempre estaba estudiando diversos regímenes de ejercicios para ampliar su base de conocimientos. Se interesó por el ideal griego clásico de un hombre equilibrado en cuerpo, mente y espíritu, y comenzó a desarrollar su propio sistema de ejercicios basado en este concepto.

> Joe ya no era el niño enfermizo de antes y se convirtió en un ávido esquiador, buzo, gimnasta, y el boxeador.

* En 1912 Joe fue a Inglaterra, donde trabajó como instructor de defensa personal para los detectives de Scotland Yard. Al estallar la Primera Guerra Mundial, Joe fue internado como un “enemigo extranjero ” con otros ciudadanos alemanes. Durante su internamiento, Joe refinó sus ideas y entrenó otros internados en su sistema de ejercicio.

<Una epidemia de influenza azotó Inglaterra en 1918, matando a miles de personas, pero ni uno solo de los alumnos de Joe murió. Esto, según él, dio testimonio de la eficacia de su sistema.

* En 1926, Joe emigró a los Estados Unidos con su pareja Clara Zeuner. Abrieron un gimnasio en Nueva York, compartiendo una dirección con el New York City Ballet.

<Pilates no fue creado para los bailarines, Joe menudo no le gustaba enseñar a los bailarines, ya que tienden a distorsionar su método por sobre-estiramiento de sus articulaciones. Bailarines acudieron a su estudio de todas formas cuando descubrieron qué tan efectiva es crear el cuerpo equilibrado, potente y delgado que necesitan. 

History of Pilates

Recently I have started pilates classes after my mom told me for so many years it was awesome and I never paid attention to her. Well, she was right, I’m totally crazy about it now! It not only helps my backpains but Im getting so strong and in shape. As the journalist I am, I can’t help but investigate everything I get interested in, so here is a short post on History Facts on PILATES. And yes people that is MARYLIN MONROE doing her pilates work out in my picture. 

<Joseph Hubertus Pilates was born in Monchengladbach Germany in 1883. As a child, Joe had asthma and other ailments. He turned to exercise and athletics to battle these ailments and was always studying various exercise regimens to expand his knowledge base. He became interested by the classical Greek ideal of a man balanced in body, mind, and spirit, and he began to develop his own exercise system based on this concept.

>Joe was no longer the sickly child he became an avid skier, diver, gymnast, and boxer.

*In 1912 Joe went to England, where he worked as a self-defense instructor for detectives at Scotland Yard. At the outbreak of World War I, Joe was interned as an “enemy alien” with other German nationals. During his internment, Joe refined his ideas and trained other internees in his system of exercise.

<An influenza epidemic struck England in 1918, killing thousands of people, but not a single one of Joe’s trainees died. This, he claimed, testified to the effectiveness of his system.

>Joe returned to Germany, his exercise was popular in the dance community. Hanya Holm adopted many of Joe’s exercises for her modern dance curriculum, and they are still part of the “Holm Technique.”

*In 1926, Joe emigrated to the United States with his partner Clara Zeuner. They opened a fitness studio in New York, sharing an address with the New York City Ballet.

<Pilates was NOT created for dancers, Joe often disliked teaching dancers because they tend to distort his method by over-stretching their joints. Dancers flocked to his studio anyway when they discovered how effective it is at creating the balanced, powerful and lean physique that they need.*

>Joe taught his method very specifically according to the client and would change the way an exercise was taught depending on what that body needed.

*Mat-work is the purest form of Pilates, since Joe created it long before he began designing his apparatus

Film: Secrets behind the scenes,THE CABINET OF DR CALIGARI

hqdefault

THE CABINET OF DR CALIGARI (1919) 71min, German.

My fellow moviegoers here are some behind the scenes secrets of the movie CABINET OF DR.CALIGARI, directed by Robert Wiene and considered the first expressionist film in history.

Under the command of Dr Caligari, Cesare, in a deep sleep strange to this world, he stands in the coffin. His empty gaze at the body of a young bleeding woman that was found in the morning. His face twisted in horror.

Through a flashback Wiene tells the story of Dr. Caligari (Werner Kraus), hypnotist who uses his powers to commit murder by means of a man called Cesare (Conrad Veidt).

Here are some interesting facts about the making of the film:

1. The original script was altered, instead of showing as responsible for the crimes the morbid Dr Caligari, he solves the end of the film blaming a mentally ill person.

2 The inclusion of a preface and the change of script in the project was because it started with Fritz Lang and then passed into the hands of Weine.

3 Scenery would be requested to no less than the painter Alfred Kubin, but eventually it fell into the hands of the architect Hermann Warm and colleagues (belonging to the group of expressionist Der Sturm).

4 Erich Pommer appears as a director, the decorator regards that while Pommer oversaw the project, the actual producer was Rudolf Meinert.
