The use of the students’ native language in class should not always be considered wrong. Teachers should not disregard the fact that when students’ feelings have been touched in some way, they may feel the yearning to express themselves using their mother tongue. Besides, given the importance of establishing a close rapport with students, teachers need to pay attention to what students need to communicate about themselves, even when this is not making them exercise their oral performance in the target language. Indeed, allowing students to use their native language in class whenever they need to express their excitement, sadness or even disappointment could be considered acceptable.

An analysis of Women Images in Two Magazine Advertisements (TOTAL AMOUNT OF WORDS OF THE WHOLE ANALYSIS 1600)
I have chosen to compare and contrast two advertisements found within the context of text advertising which show images of women and to discuss the way in which both of them depict women’s gender role.
The two ads were located in magazines with different readership. The first ad (Jumbo) was found in a local magazine (Miradas, October 2008) which mainly deals with yellowish pieces of news and gossip about the show-business. The Second ad (LG) was taken from an American design magazine which focuses on high standard and luxurious home decoration (Elle Decor, November 2004)
The design of the local advertisement shows the drawing of a woman speaking on the phone, enclosed in a circle. Inside the circle, there is a baby’s dummy which is not proportionate with the woman’s size. This dummy may actually be an indexical image indicating that there is a baby involved in the conversation probably related to the woman and the big size of the dummy may signify the importance of the signified (the baby). As regards the telephone, it may be referred to both as an icon (representing what it shows) and as a symbol standing for communication.

Study in Buenos Aires We are very pleased to have so many foreigners living in or visiting our country. It is a fact that most foreign people feel the need to communicate in our language on many occasions, even though they manage with English in most places. Thus, we decided to offer foreigners the possibility to study Spanish with our specialised teachers, who can cater for most of their needs. We organise Spanish intensive courses with special social or business orientation. Furthermore, all our courses are taken to the student’s place, either home, hotel or workplace. Moreover, we organise special “City-Tour” courses in which our teachers take the learner around the city to “live the language”. We also provide them with all the necessary material for their daily work. Besides, in all our ordinary courses we make use of the most up-dated authentic material to guarantee effective learning in contact with current issues. In order to provide the necessary qualifications in the study of Spanish as a foreign language, Helping North has a special agreement with the Buenos Aires University (UBA) that guarantee our students the best certification of the level they reach. As soon as foreign students contact us, we offer them an interview where we set objectives and the estimated time to devote to each course.
