What I think about "Bonde da Stronda"

It's very easy for me to describe the group of hip hop "Bonde da Stronda". They are kind of ugly boys that want to be famous writing about sex and other stupid things that I'm sure they don't do. They also use international instrumental songs, mix it, and make strange lyrics to join it. The group use to play in teen parties, festivals, and nightclubs, for hundreds of people who believe that pornography, vulgar sex, depreciation of woman, and acting like animals are better than studying and being someone in life. I'll show you part of the lyrics:

"algumas falam demais e na hora só enrolam
esse tipo é popular, xxt coca-cola
mas não importa qual vai ser importa se vai rolar
morena,ruiva,loira,negra o importante é furar"

"Várias idades, cidades, sotaques,
variedades sempre tem e as namoradas dão ataque.
Banheira de hidromassagem com as mina passando nua
e os parceiros só de toalha chamando as mulher na rua."

OH MY GOD, what is this?
And the worse: the fans of the group have between 12 and 16 years old. Which adults will they be in the future? Do they have future? Girls that still play with barbies are being convinced that the important is to have sex with eveybody!

"Quando eu entro na night eu avisto as cocota
Os barro também, até os mauriçoca
É um bando de grupinho disputando atenção
Da lincensa cumpadi, eu sou playsson mermão"

"O manual da stronda serve até para as cocotas
Ouve com atenção e ve que isso não é moda
Modinha Playsson?
só se for pra você
pra mim é um estilo que só tem a cresce"

"No som Stronda Music volume até o final
Pras cocota rebolarem e cairem na real
que a real é a noitada pregando sacanagem
estilo mar putão sem coração só na viajem"

"Pra continuar, eu sou um cafetão
Cafetão de puta rica essa é minha profissão
Antes de sair bote sempre sua prata
Peça bling bling direto na carcaça"

As if it wasn't enough, the girls really like to be known as "bitches". They think that being treated like a animal and acting like it is the best quality ever!

What's the future of these teenagers?

Take care of your children. Give your opinion.

Learning is truly ongoing - practicing too

Students' stories = Engaging, Learning opportunities

If the title got you hooked, I'm sure you're gonna read to the end. One dilemma most English teachers face is getting students to write any kind of text, in the traditional school context. Look what I cooked up for all of you to work around that obstacle.

A student of yours tells you they have not seen any of the last messages you send to the group because their phone went dead. That was ten days ago. Since then, they have been reachable only by land line or e-mail (that is, when they access a computer). 
You almost automatically feel sorry for that person, eagerly wanting to know how they are getting by without what has become an extension of our bodies (for most of us, at least). How do they keep up with everything that is being shared on social media? Have they started facing bank lines again or ordering foods and other services on a traditional device? How do friends and loved ones keep in touch? How are they making out without Netflix or other streaming platforms to occup…

Learning English is a journey, not a trip

Lately I've been curious to know how people who are learning English would answer the four questions above. Twenty two years have passed and the need to learn - and master - English continues to be a fleeting goal for many Brazilians, almost as if they're chasing the Sun. The number of people who claim to have at least working knowledge of the language hasn't passed the 5% mark of the population. English is available in the form of social media and free websites, TV series and more, yet efforts to achieve higher levels of proficiency are like stops in the ocean. The questions above point to the role of self motivation and self awareness, rather than stressing the methodology, the material or the duration of study. Setting realistic goals in language learning has never been more paramount for us to keep learning bit by bit, level by level. After all, you can enjoy your trip, but only truly learn from a journey.
