Summer - The Sunny Cowgirls


¿Y como es la Navidad en Australia?... Summer!





Fresh cut lawn
We're running round with it the sprinklers on
At last it feels like winter's finally gone
And now we're gearing up for fun, ooh

Here that sound
Our feet are tapping and the music's loud
Slip slop and slapping drinking cold ones down
While we're soaking up the sun
Come on everyone


'Cause it's
summer summer summer summer

Our Aussie
summer summer summer summer

Our favourite time of year, Christmas cheer
Australia Day is nearly here, it's summer, ooh


All aboard
The boat is ready got our wetsuits on
Jump off the jetty skiing all day long
Then throw a line into the dam, ooh

A clear blue sky
Has now set into a balmy night
Corona's chasing down the fish we fried
And as we settle in the sand
Feeling fit and tanned


(Chorus)


Hot water comes out both our taps
The snakes are under the tank
Singlet and bikini lines
The seatbelt's a branding iron
The bitumen will melt your thongs
The aircon's blasting all night long
That's how you know your in an Aussie


(Chorus)
x2

Call Me - Go West

A veces pasa, ¿Cierto?

Te ves con alguién con quien hubo empatía
pero, o no intercambiaron números de teléfono,
o solo uno de los 2 lo tuvo pero nunca llamó...

Bueno yo recuerdo muchas personas y momentos de mi niñez,
momentos chéveres pero donde mi timidez me mató.

No se pasaron autobarreras, no se dijeron palabras,
así que se desvanecieron en el tiempo pues el contacto se perdió...

:-(




Uh, face to face, my reflection in your eyes
I was scared to say too much

Perfect strangers in perfect worlds apart
Almost close enough to touch

Staring at my shoes, Feeling so confused
Shot down without a gun, Victim of a hit and run


Won't you...

/Call me/
No time to hesitate...
Oh, we must communicate
, yeah!

/Call me/
Won't you call this number now?


Mesmerised I go back to where we met
A reconstruction of the crime

I can't track you down, nowhere to be found
Now my one shot at success is the power of the press


Won't you...


Call me, I want you to call me


Watch this space, there's a message here for you
No need to read between the lines

I am inside out, there can be no doubt
I want you and no-one else, Please identify yourself


/Call me/
No time to hesitate...
Oh, we must communicate
, yeah!

/Call me/
Won't you call this number now?

/Call me/
I'll be waiting here for you
I don't know what else to do

/Call me/
Yeah, won't you call this number now?

/Call me/...

Rum & Coca-Cola - The Andrews Sisters




If you ever go down Trinidad
They make you feel so very glad
Calypso sing and make up rhyme
Guarantee you one real good fine time


Drinking rum and Coca-Cola
Go down Point Koomahnah
Both mother and daughter
Working for the Yankee dollar


Oh, beat it man, beat it


If the Yankee come to Trinidad
They got the young girls all going mad
Young girls say they treat 'em nice
Make Trinidad like paradise


(Chorus)

Oh, you vex me, you vex me


From Chicachicaree to Mona's Isle
Native girls all dance and smile
Help soldier celebrate his leave
Make every day like New Year's Eve


(Chorus)

It's a fact, man, it's a fact


In old Trinidad, I also fear
The situation is mighty queer
Like the Yankee girl, the native swoon
When she hear der Bingo croon


(Chorus)


Out on Manzanella Beach
G.I. romance with native peach
All night long, make tropic love
Next day, sit in hot sun and cool off


(Chorus)

It's a fact, man, it's a fact


/Rum and Coca-Cola.../

Working for the Yankee dollar!

Listen to Mama - Walkerman



...listen what I'm saying
And listen to your mama, all right?
Now you watch this...


I was cruising in my car one day
Minding my bussiness on my way

/Oh mama, ven!/

I spotted this girl on the roadside
Asking to hop in to my ride

/Oh mama, ven!/

So I put up the lights, so we don`t crash
Burn and shine, give me your cash...

/Oh mama, ven!/

You, I started to laugh like it was fun
Then this girl pulled out a gun


What up?
You`re always getting in a trouble

What up?
I`m not getting into trouble

What up?
You`re always getting in a trouble

What up?

-No i`m not
-Yes you are
-No I`m not

What up?


She didn't really mean to hurt me
She didn't really mean to make me cry
But if you really want to go that way
That's ok .. that's ok...

(x2)

I met this girl in a club one night
She was riding off like dynamite
She offered me a biggy side by my side
We ordered champagne until the bar was dry

/Oh mama, ven!/

After night was closing in
We started wondering
Who is paying for the things that you order in
Then the girl on the side sees how wrong this is


(Chorus)


Your mama is telling up if you do that
You're playing with fire, you shouldn't do that
You`re mama just was telling what if you do that
And you don't listen up

/Oh mama, ven!/

(Chorus)

Una más Cerveza - Tommy Alverson

One more beer! Dicen en los 'United'...
Y por traducirlo literalmente al Español les quedó:

¡Una más cerveza!
Lo correcto sería: ¡Una cerveza más!


Debemos tener cuidado de nosotros no cometer en mismo error.
Recuerda, no siempre funciona traducir palabra por palabra.

Tampoco debemos traducir ciertas palabras o conceptos.

La regla general es:

"No traduzcas nada que haga que ese algo
pierda identidad o sentido en su ambiente local"



Por ejemplo:


Direcciones o nombres de barrios hispanos

Algunos por decir Barrio el Jardín, escriben Garden Neighborhood.
Eso no se debe hacer. Si le dieramos así la dirección a un extranjero
embolatariamos al visitante y enloqueceríamos al taxista.



Tus nombres o apellidos o los de una institución

Algunos estudiantes han traducido al presentarse, digamos un nombre ficticio:

Jorge Rios lo ponen George Rivers.
Eso es un error.

También me han llegado a traducir SENA (Lo cual es una sigla)
al Inglés por 'Seine' (El río Sena de Francia)
Otro craso Error.

Eso no se debe hacer. Tu te llamas en cualquier país
como aparece tu nombre en tu documento de identidad.

Las entidades tampoco debes traducirlas:

El Banco Colmena en Colombia no es 'beehive'.
Así perdería todo sentido.

Eso embolata a cualquiera.
Dejaría 'Gringo' a cualquier extranjero
y lo haríamos perderse en nuestra ciudad.


Vamos a cantar 'Una más cerveza'
pero con ese error solo por recochar, ¿Vale?


;- )





Life was kinda hectic and I was having trouble sleeping
I was going crazy and I had to get away
I loaded up my pickup for a Mexican vacation
I didn't know the language but I quickly learned to say:

Ah, una más cerveza
Por favor
Senorita
x3

Then I kept right on driving until I hit the ocean
Found a small cantina down on Monterrey way
I met up with a girl down there but she did not speak any English
I probably coulda had her too, but all I knew how to say...

(Chorus)

Then I woke up the next morning and I knew that I was in trouble
I was extremely naked lying face down in the sand
Well stumbled to me feet, started looking for my old pickup
I would've asked for help, but I knew all they understand...

(Chorus)

So if your life is kinda hectic and your having trouble sleeping
Think your going crazy and you need to get away
The thought has crossed your mind about a hidden up for the border
Let me tell you something, all you need to know how to say is...

(Chorus)

Relative Clauses - Intermedio 1

Las Cláusulas Relativas son 2 partes de la oración
relacionadas por una palabra clave conectora.

A través de esa palabra se da una información,
usualmente posterior,
Relativa a alguien (WHO) o algo (WHICH)
mencionado previamente.


Principalmente se usan 3 palabras:

WHO
WHICH
THAT


Ejemplos:

"The LORD is the only one
WHO can give life"
El SEÑOR el el único QUIEN puede dar vida

Deuteronomio 30:20"I will give you and them the land in WHICH you are now a foreigner"Yo te daré a tí y a ellos la tierra en LA CUAL tu eres ahora un extranjero
Génesis 17:8
"I have promised you their land THAT is rich with milk and honey"
Yo les he prometido a ustedes su tierra QUE es rica con leche y miel
Levítico 20:24

(Clic en la imágen para ampliarla)
 
 
A continuación presento
unos listados
de ejemplos 'comprimidos'
de
Relative Clauses basados -en gran parte- en las oraciones del cursoEnglish Discoveries Online - Nivel Intermedio I.


Antes de los listados
explico en esta imágen como interpretar lo 'comprimido':


Los ejemplos con casillas naranjas
están compuestos en casi su totalidad de la
linea superior
de los ejemplos comprimidos.

Los ejemplos rodeados de recuadro punteado azul oscuro
son formados de la linea inferior
de los ejemplos comprimidos.

Una vez ya hayan estudiando la anterior imágen
ya podrán entender estos dos listados
que muestran la lógica y estructuras posibles
de las
Relative Clauses:

(Clic en la imágen para ampliarla)



Nota:Cuando escribo -Whom-
es porque esa es mi forma de resumir
que ahí puede ir tanto
la palabra Whocomo la palabra Whom.



En este segundo listado
ya no se descomprimen tantas formaciones como en el anterior
(Solo entre 2 y 3, mientras que el previo listado
se descomprimían 5 formaciones de cada ejemplo):



 (Clic en la imágen para ampliarla)


Notas:
Cada palabra entre paréntesis ( )
indica que es opcional dentro de la oración.

Es claro que para comenzar
es más sencillo usar la palabra -that-
mientras se aprenden a usar, who, whom y which,
pero aun mejor es formar la oración
de la forma más sencilla y fácil,
es decir,
no necesitamos usar ni siquiera la palabra -that-,
la omitimos y listo.

Room for More - Kr!s




The morning scent, those pretty streets
there’s so much in every day

Another day, you and me
feeling free in every way


You may find room for new perspectives
Take a chance and watch things grow

Curious and selective
find your own way to flow, Oh, Oh...


One day in your life
One moment in time
Gotta find your own way
To open every door
'Cause there’s room for more


Find all the good things in your live
Discover new trends all around

It’s so much fun to be alive
taste every side and every sound

(Oh, yeah!)


(Chorus)
x4

You’ll be free!

Miracle - Matishyahu (Hanukkah Song)

Algo de Historia...




Juego Tradicional en Hanukkah:









Just living in the miracle, candles are my vehicle
Eight nights, gonna shine invincible
No longer be divisible, born through the struggle
Keep on moving through all this hustle

Head up, heads down through all of the bustle
New York City wanna flex your muscle
Look so down, look so puzzled
Huddle ‘round your fire through all the rubble


/Bound to stumble and fall but my strength comes not from man at all/


Do you believe in miracles
Am I hearing you? Am I seeing you?
Eight nights eight lights and these rites keep me right
Bless me to the highest heights with your miracle


Against all odds drive on till tomorrow
Wipe away your tears and your sorrow
Sunrise in the sky like an arrow
No need to worry, no need to cry

Light up your mind no longer be blind
Him who searches will find
Leave your problems behind you will shine like a fire in the sky
what's the reason we’re alive – the reason we’re alive


/Bound to stumble and fall but my strength comes not from man at all/


(Chorus)


Eight is the number of infinity one more than what you know how to be
And this is the light of festivity when your broken heart yearns to be free


(Chorus)

Joanna - Kool & The Gang


Viejos Tiempos y Nuevos Tiempos ;- )





Yohana, I love you
You're the one, the one for me


I'm in love, and I won't lie
She's my girl and always on my mind
She gives me her love and a feeling that's right
Never lets me down, especially at night

So, I'm gonna do the best I can
To please that girl and be her only man, see
She cheers me up when I feel alone
And that's why baby I've got to let you know


Yohana, I love you
You're the one, the one for me, my baby


She's the one, the one for me
She's the kind of girl makes you feel nice, so
I'll try my best to do what's right
Take her for a ride, everything's fine


Yohana, I love you
You're the one, the one for me


Searched so far, searched so long
To find someone, someone to count on
Now I feel I've got it right here
Found it in you, baby, you, my dear

We can do all night, so nice
We'll have it all and everything will be alright
I'm promising you, take it from me
Take it home, baby take it home, baby

She's the one, the one for me
She's the kind of girl makes you feel nice, so
I'll try my best to do what's right
Take her for a ride, everything's fine


Oh Yohana
Oh Yohana


Yohana, I love you
You're the one, the one for me

Angels we have heard on high - Relient K

"... Y repentinamente fue con el ángel
una multitud de los ejércitos celestiales
que alababan a Dios, y decían:

Gloria a Dios en las alturas
y en la tierra paz
buena voluntad para con los hombres"


Lucas 2:13-14

Dios de su pura buena voluntad
decidió perdonar todos nuestros pecados
en Cristo Jesús,
el cual es Dios y Salvador nuestro.

Dios mismo vino a salvarnos, Yeah!




Y esta en versión más clásica ;-)


Angels we have heard on high
sweetly singing o'er* the plains
and the mountians in reply
echoing their joyous strains

Gloria
In Excelsius Deo

(x2)

Shepheards why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be?
Which inspire your heavenly song?

Come to Behlehem and see
Christ whose birth the angels sing
Come adore on bended knee
Christ our Lord, the new born king

Gloria
In Excelsius Deo

Wait Till Sunday - Gary Schutt

Continuando con el estilo del Rock Clásico de los 80s,
excellentes guitarras, y un baterista genial
les presento esta nueva producción de Gary Schutt.


Anhelamos ver a la persona que amamos.
Contamos el tiempo, los días, las horas.
Queremos que ya sea ese día...





Got butterflies, Jello thighs, hands that shake
And a heart that beats to fast

I’m impatient, Stupefied, Hysterical
And I don’t think I’ll last... today

It started out like this, I cant wait for that kiss
If all persists


I just can’t wait till Sunday
It’s only 2 days away

Na na na
na na
na


I’m excited, delighted, Invited emotions overdue
It’s stressless, I’m breathless, I confess just to see you again

It started out like this, I cant wait for that kiss
If all persists


I just can’t wait till Sunday
It’s only 2 days away

Na na na
na na
na


I can’t stand 2 days waiting
Mental anticipating
I know it sounds so cliché
I just can’t wait till Sunday comes


Yeah... I’m skeptical, A concrete wall, But most of all
What am I to do?

You fascinate, intoxicate, exhilarate
Think I’m gonna fall for you

Warm fuzzies, let’s begin, the kiss that breathes you in
I want your touch, can’t get enough


I just can’t wait till Sunday
It’s only 1 day away

Na na na


I just can’t wait till Sunday
Friday, Saturday, Yeah...

You are the blue sky all day
You chase the clouds away


I just can’t wait till Sunday
Sunday

/I don’t know what else to say/


I just can’t wait till Sunday
Sunday

Always - Jon Bon Jovi

Si de verdad se ama no se causan heridas,
y hay quienes después de cometerlas
terminan pidiendo 'cacao' como en esta canción.

Hay al parecer, personas de 'pipí alegre' y corazón grande
que dicen amarlas a todas...
¿Será cierto?
No se. No es mi estilo.

Casos como el de Tiger Woods rebosan el vaso.
Sin embargo hay veces que una sola infidelidad
es como una gota de veneno
que irreversiblemente contamina y echa a perder
toda el agua de una relación.

Aun así,
si el arrepentimiento es sincero y la vaina no se repite
a lo mejor hasta se perdona.
Aunque de cuando en cuando, se sabe,
correrán lagrimas de parte y parte.
quizás no todo llegue a ser igual.

:'-(

Love is Endless - Mozella




Peli recomendada:

Life as we Know it
(La Vida tal como nosotros la Conocemos)

Bajo un Mismo Techo


2 estilos de vida totalmente diferentes
se amoldan entre sí por el amor
dentro de circunstancias inesperadas.

Divertida comedia... Y una lección para la vida.


Un beso y un abrazo para la dulce chica que me invitó a verla ;-)


Si el amor es verdadero no se acaba, renace cada día,
con cada detalle y con cada actividad compartida.

Por lo pronto, vamos a contar 15 de ellas ¿Vale?

;- )





1 for starry nights and
2 for candle lights and
3 for long walks in the sun

4 for all the laughter
5 for ever after
6 your smile is just the best

Love is endless


/Love
Love love love
Love love love
Love love love
Love is endless/


7 you're my goodluck charm
8 for your open arms
9 for best sunday in the rain

10 couldn't get much better
11 two once put together
12 all the joy and happiness

Love is endless


[chorus]


count out loud all of the ways that life is good
on different days how things can change
love always stays the same

Love is endless

count out loud, it never ends the list goes on
hit on again, forgive, forget
and let your heart begin

Love is endless


[chorus]


13 I got brand new eyes
14 everything is a surprise
15 not a day that I regret

Love is endless

I'm Your Man - Michael Buble



Para la chica de mis sueños ;-)



If you want a lover
I'll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I'll wear a mask for you

And If you want a partner, take my hand
Or if you want to strike me down in anger
Here I stand
I'm your man


And if you want a boxer
I will step into the ring for you
And if you want a doctor
I'll examine every inch of you

And If you want a driver, climb inside
Or if you want to take me for a ride
You know you can
'Cause I'm your man


Ah, the moon's too bright
The chains too tight
The beast won't go to sleep

I've been running through
these promises to you
That I made and I could not keep

Ah, but a man never got
a woman back

And not by begging on his knees


I'd crawl to you baby
And I'd fall at your feet
And I'd howl at your beauty
Like a dog in heat

And I'd claw at your heart
And I'd tear at your sheet
I'd say please...
'Cause I'm your man


And if you've got to sleep a moment on the road
I will steer for you
And if you want to work the street alone
I'll disappear for you

And If you want a father for your child
Or only want to walk with me a while
Across the sand
Well I'm your man


(Chorus)


I'm your man

Mmmm...

'Cause I'm your man

Coca-Cola 2010 Christmas Commercial

Bueno, aun no tengo claro
si fue 'santa' quien invirtió en acciones de Coca-Cola
o visceversa; pero bueno,
ambos me producen sentimientos encontrados:

'santa'
es mu tierno, pero imaginario...
y Coca-Cola
refrescante y deliciosa, pero -para nada- saludable...

Lo que si está claro
es que la música de este comercial quedó muy vacana
y el mensaje muy claro:

No todo en la vida es plata.
Descansemos,
compartamos con quienes amamos.
El tiempo es oro,
regalémosnos tiempo con nuestros seres queridos.

Además, se debe dar todo por aquel a quien se ama...
Jesús nos amó y entregó su vida... ¡Todo!

Ese sí es mi héroe ;-)

Por otra parte si tenemos empleados seamos buenos con ellos,
no abusemos de nuestras posiciones,
Tratémoslos con amor,
démosles tiempo para que disfruten con sus familias,
no revivamos la esclavitud... ¿Eh? ;-)





Once upon a time in a town like this
A little girl made a great big wish...


Shake it up
Shake up the happiness
Wake it up
Wake up the happiness

Come on you...
It’s Christmas time


I know you’re out there
I hear your reindeer
I see the snow where
Your boots have been

The Eagles - Please, come home for Christmas

Mucha prudencia...
No manejen embriagados por el amor de Dios.

No contribuyan a que las alegrías se conviertan en trstezas...

Que Dios cuide sus viajes familiares
para que hayan gratos reencuentros.
Bells will be ringing
this sad, sad news
Oh, what a Christmas
to have the blues

My baby's gone
I have no friends
To wish me greetings
once again

Cries will be singing
Silent Night
Christmas carols
by candlelight

/Please come home for Christmas/
If not for Christmas by New Years night

Friends and relations
send salutations
Sure as the stars shine above

But this is Christmas
Yes, Christmas my dear
The time of year
to be with the ones you love

So won't you tell me
you'll never more roam
Christmas and new Years
will find you home

/ (Oh) There'll be no more sorrow
no grief and pain
And I'll be happy
Christmas once again/

Give me the simple Life - Rosemary Clooney







A cottage small is all I'm after
Not one that's spacious and wide
A house that rings with joy and laughter
And the ones you love inside

I don't believe in fretting and grieving
Why mess around with strife?
I never was cut out to step and strut out
Give me the simple life

Some find it pleasant dining on pheasant
Those things roll off my knife
Just serve me tomatoes and mashed potatoes
Give me the simple life.

Yes, a cottage small is all I'm after
Not one that's spacious and wide
A house that rings with joy and laughter
And the ones you love inside

Some like the high road, I like the low road
Free form the care and strife
Sounds corny and seedy, but yes, indeedy
Give me the simple life

And living I find is best when your mind
is keen as a carving knife

I'm crazy about sleep, can't do without sleep
Give me the simple life

I love to whittle and play a little
Tune on a ten cent fife*


Give me the simple life

I greet the dawn when I awaken
The sky is clear up above
I like my scrambled eggs and bacon
Served by someone that I love

Some like the high road...

Yes, I love You - Strike 3




Every day I know it’s gonna change
A said it because all of you everytime
I feel your hands close to me
Your love is growing strong inside of me, ye-eah...

Your eyes drive me crazy
They make me feel your grace
I wanna be your friend
And be with you until the end


I love you, yes... I know
and every day I want you even more
I need you, yes... You know
It’s like the air... is whispering to give you more



Let’s sit down and talk, look into to my eyes
And listen to the things that my heart wants to tell you now

You took me with your hands
And you show me what is like to show you love and not... be afraid


(Chorus)

All my Bells are Ringing - Lenka




Mistletoe and holly deck the halls
But you don't come around and you don't call
Well it's just like the season to be lonely
And my heart is beating for you only


(So) Take my heart this Christmas
And wrap it in a ribbon and a bow
Yes, Take my heart this Christmas
Take it wherever you go


Everybody has someone to hold
Nestle by the fire from the cold
But I don't hear the carols they are singing
And I've only got one thing good for giving


(Chorus)


All my bells are ringing just for you
And I got no desire for someone new


(Chorus)

Take it... wherever... you go ;-)

Protege tus Oídos y los de tus Hijos son clave para el Aprendizaje de los Idiomas

"Language is free.
It's a gift that we can give our children anytime and anyplace."
Jerve Pendergrass





Dr. Janet Worker: Thanks again, Warren, for coming in. We really appreciate it.

Narrator: Psychologist Dr. Janet Worker wants to know how babies distinguish speech sounds of their native language.

Worker: Babies, just like adults, are interested in new information. So when they hear something that's different from what they've been hearing before, their interest perks up. And you can measure that in a number of ways. You can measure it through their sucking pattern or through their looking time or even through something like a head turn.

Narrator: Worker trains babies to turn their heads whenever they hear a change in sound by rewarding them with a view of a musical bunny. Soon babies are turning their heads the moment they hear a change, anticipating the bunny. Headphones prevent the adults from hearing the speech sounds and accidentally cuing the baby.

Worker: Hey, Shane. Are you ready?

Worker can now find out if this six month old can hear the difference between two English sounds. She keeps the baby engaged until phonames are played over a speaker.

Audio: Da... da... da... ba...

Narrator: This baby can hear the difference between B and D. In fact, even newborns can tell them apart.

Worker: (Good boy) Look Shane, look.

Narrator: Next, Worker tests the baby with another pair of sounds. The phoneme will change from one kind of D to another. The two sound distinct to speakers of Hindi, but adults who only speak English can't hear the difference.

Baby: Da... da... da... a...

Narrator: The baby hears the difference between the two sounds, one of which she's never heard before. By the age of ten to twelve months, infants not regularly exposed to Hindi lose the ability to distinguish these sounds.

Baby: Da, dah, da, ba.

Narrator: Twelve months old babies have already become specialists in their native language. We now know that in even very young children, the ability to hear language is highly developed. For parents of future readers, Workers' research contains an important message.

Worker: As a parent, when you're talking to your infant, you're not only having a wonderful time and setting up a great emotional relationship, but you might also be providing them with essential information for them to become accomplished readers some several years later.

Diferencia entre Oración, Cláusula y Frase

(Clic en la imagen para ampliarla)


En pocas palabras podemos decir que
las Oraciones se componen de Cláusulas,
y las Cláusulas de Frases.


Oración Completa*
= Cláusula Independiente


Ej:


Yo soy Jorge Mario.

Ellos juegan fútbol.


*Sin embargo Cláusula
por lo regular indica que es una parte de algo,
no un todo completo,
y ese algo de lo que forma parte es una Oración Completa,
la cual usualmente se compone de dos (2) Cláusulas,
una Independiente o Principal
y otra Dependiente o Subordinada.


Tipos de Cláusulas

Noun Clauses
Adverbial Clauses
Subject Clauses
Object Clauses
Relative Clauses
Clauses of result
Conditional Clause
Subjunctive Mood

(Para más detalles ver Grammar Book del Curso)


Ej:

Podemos ir al cine o quedarnos en casa.

El solo toma jugos porque le hace daño la gaseosa.

Esa es la casa bonita de la cual te he estado hablando.

Una Cláusula siempre tiene Sujeto Y Verbo.

Una Frase solo tiene Sujeto O Verbo.
