Working in tech has its perks, including getting outrageous pitches in your Inbox that will make you go WHAT?!
Enter, Camsoda, a new entertainment/webcam platform that prides itself of being “the first-ever adult language-learning service that combines multilingual cam models and cutting edge translation technology to make learning a new language fun and sensual.”
I am going to spare you the graphic details, but if you’re so inclined in taking up a super sensual language, say Spanish, you can head over here.
Oh, and by the way: What if we, the ladies, want to learn a language too? Where are the hot machos?
I just love it when teaching institutions spend their money luring U.S. Hispanics to whatever it is that they do. But my favorite ones have to be those who offer a Master in Spanish as a Second Language by pitching the course in, well, lousy Spanish.
Take FUNIBER (Fundación Universitaria Iberoamericana,) an obscure academic institution that has been advertising in some Latino-targeted sites in the U.S., promising students to make the most out of speaking Spanish.
Problem is: If you are truly a Spanish-speaker (so presumably you can teach others) you’d know you have to say “Haz de tu español una gran ventaja” and NOT “Has de tu español una gran ventaja,” simply because, you know? it is WRONG!
Too subtle for you? Go check your dictionary. But, more importantly, don’t let these guys fool you!
