Thank you in different Language

Yes, I see a lot of spreading of good deeds.  And I still feel we need more… Thank You in 20 Different Languages and why it’s important to spread the word.

Do you want to put a smile on FACE Today just say, Thank you” Make someone day, it’s easy… I will facilitate you with  20 different languages I think are the start…

If you’re embarking on an international adventure—or if you just want to be prepared to say “thanks” to anyone you meet in life—it’s good to learn how to say “thank you” in different languages.

Or, maybe you’re just curious about what the rest of the world is up to. Learning about these expressions of gratitude will satisfy that multilingual craving.

1. Arabic: شكرا (shukraan)

While this is the more general “thank you” in standard Arabic, you can get a little more specific and say شكرًا لك (shukraan lak) when talking to a male or شكرًا لكي (shukraan laki) when talking to a female. It’s not a necessity to add those words, but it’s a nice touch.

2. Mandarin: 谢谢 (xiéxié)

This is the main way to say “thank you,” but you can also use 多谢(duōxiè), which is the equivalent of “thanks a lot,” to amplify the gratitude.

3. French: Merci

Short and sweet is the basic French word for thanks, merci. You may hear people thank one another with merci mille fois, which equates to “a thousand thanks.”

4. German: Danke

If someone offers you something, it’s better to use bitte when accepting. Dankein that context, may give off the impression that you’re declining the offer.

5. Italian: Grazie

You can add emphasis by saying grazie mille, but be warned that this can sometimes be perceived as sarcasm!

6. Japanese: ありがとう (arigatou)

Use this “thank you” with family and friends, but not with someone of a higher social status, like your teacher or your boss. For them, you may use the slightly more polite ありがとうございますいます (arigatou gozaimasu).

7. Korean: 고마워 (gomawo)

Use this informally. To show respect to strangers or those of a higher status, add  (yo) to the end. With someone of a higher social status, you’ll be safer using 감사합니다 (gamsahabnida) which is much more respectful.

8. Portuguese: Obrigado

Obrigado is used when spoken by a man, while women use obrigada. Choose the proper word ending according to your own gender!

9. Russian: Cпасибо (spasibo)

You may also use Большое спасибо (bolshoe spasibo) or, when trying to show immense gratitude, огромное спасибо (ogromnoye spasibo).

10. Spanish: Gracias

It seems that most of the world’s inhabitants are already familiar with the Spanish word for “thank you,” gracias. There’s also muchas gracias or muchísimas gracias for even more emphasis.

11. Cantonese: 唔該 (m̀h gōi)

You generally use this when thanking someone for an act or service, while 多謝 (dòjeh) is used to thank someone for a gift or compliment.

12. Dutch: Dank je

If speaking formally, it’s better to use dank u wel.

13. Finnish: Kiitos

This is the most common way of thanking someone, but you can use kiitos paljon in cases where you’re extremely grateful to someone.

14. Greek: ευχαριστώ (efcharistó)

It’s also acceptable to pat your chest with one hand as a small gesture conveying your thanks.

15. Hindi: धन्यवाद (dhanyavaad)

This is quite a formal way of thanking someone. You can use शुक्रिया(shukriya) which is informal. Although as mentioned earlier in our discussion of gratitude in Indian culture, we don’t recommend using either of these liberally.

16. Hawaiian: Mahalo

You may choose to say mahalo nui loa, which means “thank you very much.” This word has a rich interesting history worth reading about!

To understand the Koana or hidden meaning of Mahalo one must examine the roots of the word. 


  • MA– in this case means “within”
  • HA– refers to the “breath of life” or “Divine breath of life”
  • ALO– means “in the presence of”



The complete translation including the hidden meaning reads. “Thankful to be in the presence of the divine breath of life” It both recognizes the divine breath in ones self and the individual one is thankful for.

17. Icelandic: Takk

This is a common way of saying “thank you,” but you may also use Þakka þér fyrir, which means “thank you very much.”

18. Polish: Dziękuję Ci

You can also use a simple dzięki (thanks) or dziękuję bardzo, the latter of which means, “thank you very much”

19. Romanian: Mulţumesc

This is common, but you can also use îți mulțumesc which is informal.

20. Swedish: Tack

It’s quite common to say tackar (thanking) or tack så mycket (thanks so much), the latter of which is just slightly more formal but still quite casual.


There you have it! You’re now ready to receive all manner of nice things and express your appreciation and gratitude no matter where you where.

Just remember that it’s not always about what you say, but what you do that matters and the intent behind it.

It’s the thought that counts!

“My Child”

The blog for this month is about how we understand what is happening in the schools with our children.  And what material do they use to advise, instruct and guide the children academically, socially, and emotionally.   This the Abstract of that research.  Please I will break down, again it is another book I  have published with  but not released and


                My Child

published 209 author Esmeralda Gonzalez (Master Theses)

The following literature review along with my creative independent project discusses self-esteem and self-concept topics; that involve emotional, social and cognitive characteristic that a child must learn in order to grow up as a happy individual at home and in school and how we teachers, and parents can promote it in our their daily lives, school, community and society.

In short: Parents must promote and talk to their kids about self-esteem and self-concept topics: involving the social, emotional and cognitive skills when developing to be a person  “learning from their homes how to be happy learning attitudes”.

What I have found out when researching the topic is that there are currently are too many programs, books, and materials for teachers to help students with emotional, social and cognitive skills (how to learn, how to cooperate and how to learn about their mood and attitudes that can keep them from potential learning their academics). Counselors and teachers use self-esteem and self-concept lessons, materials and programs, theater and role play as strategies to help students learn how to put forth self-motivation and self-effort in their work, developing self-efficacy and intrinsic motivation towards their work. Such programs as tutoring and peer-mentoring also help students build their critical-thinking abilities and self-confidence in their learning and in asking questions in the classroom becoming active participants rather than spectators.

In short: The programs that schools use are via counselors and teachers help students put forth self-motivation and self-effort in their work.  By using materials and role played by students or teachers; chirography that models appropriate way on how to conducts oneself in and out of school.  The pillars of conduct, are role modeled by the educators, staff and teachers, administrators, teachers, and parents at all and out of the house ideally.

A good educator’s mission is to teach students to reach their potential—higher level of learning and thinking, how to analyzing, and evaluating (Bloom Taxonomy).

When teachers Take time to do some reflection as taught in their programs, on how they can improve their students’ skills when teaching academic strategies in learning the curriculum information…

And for this to happen, we teachers (parents) must cater to the child’s self-esteem and self-concept; emotionally, socially and cognitively. One of the ways this can happen is by using one to one communication and or technologies; computers, tablets… that have programs, and materials on self-esteem and self-concept installed in computers as part of the curriculum needed for a child’s development if they plan to succeed in the 21st century.  Value and Characters building traits when working by oneself or in teams.

In short: A good teacher is aware of these programs and the benefits they serve and needs.  She or he can reflect and come back the next day and implement strategies to reinforce a students social, emotional, and cognitive potential as to help her deliver the lesson of the day with the student  understanding ,cooperation and put forth their effort.  And supervised by an adult.

Good school districts will invest in curriculum, programs and hire professionals school social works with Masters in the field…  that are specialized in guiding students emotionally, socially and cognitively and they can do this in the way of activities and games in a fun way. The two district I worked in the had top of line computers laboratories that would guide the students cognitively.  Reading books from the library the books appropriately chosen on these topics can inspire and help with the emotional and social aspect of child development.

In short:  Districts are  (must) investing in qualified professionals and equipment to help with the task…  computers, ipad and tablets, and other programs that help students learn their academics; how to learn, work other students and be somewhat emotionally fit to succeed in and out of school.  

I also did informal surveys on principals and counselors, asking them what types of materials were available for students to help build self-esteem and self-concept other than school library school books. And as a result of questions asked,  counselors in the elementary schools, in Southern California Unified School District, would point to their shelves full of materials—books, videos, games, and audio books to show how they handled the central idea along with using one to one dialogue. I immediately understood that there were all kinds of books to choose from on self-esteem and self-concept topics, this included the books the students read at grade level; reading is soaring and learning to fly cognitively and emotionally. These were then narrowed down to topics such as responsibility, integrity, respect, tolerance, caring, honesty, study habits, how to learn, etc.… The definition of self-esteem and self-concept, according to the literature review can vary.

I also found in the literature review on how some educators just preferred to leave self-esteem programs out of the classrooms and just focus on self-concept programs—cooperation, collaboration, and lesson content curriculum.


In short: When I asked about the topic to the school consular  just pointed to all the books and materials they had.  As the question continued, what did find out, is that there is a controversy on how the teacher feels about how much time to spend time on this topic.  Some just prefer to stick to the content and not touch the topic.  I f anything gets a professional social worker involved.

Yet another study conducted on self-esteem asked students their points of view on this topic and what  they thought on-topic and their reasoning. What research revealed is that the self-esteem which the teachers were trying to promote had nothing to do with what and how the teens perceived as having self-esteem or a self-image. For some kids, having friends was at the top of the list and schoolwork at the bottom of the list.

In short:  After researching the topic yet another study indicated that the students’ self-esteem had nothing to do with school learning their academics. They were more interested in wanting to make friends and that was atop of their list.

The self-esteem and concept is the academic image a student has about their learning.

And, if since  birth the child is  hearing, “Si se puede” that is “Yes, you can,”… the child strengthens his self-image about how they view themselves and how they learn information.

The evidence on the self-image is also when students are aware of their peers than to emulate them. Their peers become very important in their lives; this is part of social identification. This also occurs with their families. Their self-awareness of their surrounding is also instrumental in  develop self-confidence and sense of belonging.


In short: If the child hears  “you can” they will grow up with a strong sense of an image.  But if they hear  constant negative feedback  all the time the self-confidence and sense of belonging will suffer.  And this when and how their peers become extremely important.

Again they must-hear positive reinforcement-from their parents and from their family first. This how the child becomes positive and develops good attitudes about their own identity developing self-esteem that will help the child’s attitude when beginning to learn new information and socialize with peers.

The following are some of the benefits they had about self-esteem and self-concept. For the most part, self-esteem and self-concept materials seem to be accepted as an avenue to help guide students’ emotional, social and cognitive development; giving kids’ mindful thinking quotes.  With the intention of guiding students let them know they can do whatever they put their mind too.  And important to use the strategies on learning how to take seriously because their academic career is first in their priority if they want to be economically independent when they grow up.

In short: Everyone who surrounds themself with a child’s development must try to be as positive as possible, of cause being fair and realistic of the situtations.

Teacher learn some of the most popular strategies to assist with their students causing them to attend seminars and meeting having leave a substitute in their place.  And the strategies the teacher learns about these topics will  be put into practice.

In the other hand, I particularly like self-esteem and self-concept materials because I have seen children be inspired by stories they have read from books they have checked out in school library and materials and videos that have been used by their teacher and discuss in class lessons. They seem to relate to the characters and plots of the stories discussed in  lessons on empathy, tolerance, respect, integrity etc.

In short: The materials have beautiful stories that can inspire and put everyone to think and discussing the plots of the material being read is a way to own the information.  The games were also helpful, kids love to compete.  Computers and tablets where the children is  able to use to learn and apply  on how to become a better ” team player”, “cooperate” ,  etc, whatever the topic is being covered that week as emphasis a caring community and get along..


As a result, I have also done a creative independent project as well, I have written a book by the title of Emmy: Brooklyn to Puerto Rico to help motivate and inspire students, by the way of an example…It is about a little girl who discovers her many qualities—how she was responsible, how she liked helping with chores, how she got bullied and didn’t like school until she began to connect with her teachers and peers developing self-awareness.

Personally, I want students to have yet another character they can relate to and find themselves in the story lines of books they read. Emmy goes through social, emotional, and academic hardships, just like some of the students in schools where I have worked. I have also included other children’s books that also relate to the topic of social, emotional and cognitive issues in a child’s development.

In short: I wrote a book to add to the collection of helpful books to motivate young adults.  Emmy Brooklyn to Puerto Rico.   Books, puzzles, and games are used to engage students imagination.

So many games, and books and ways to help the student stay motivated with their cognitive development.  We learned that even though they are more interested in their friends’ schools and parents continue to invest in the best materials as to sport the self-esteem on how they see themselves completing school… The conclusion is the self and self-concept related how they see themselves when learning math, science, reading, writing etc… and how are they see themselves in relation to others, and how can the programs already in place can assist the students cognitive learning: are they team players or spectators?  Do they prefer to work alone or others: participators-work in teams… that is what this material discusses.

Please let us know if you found value in this information.

I love blogging  and it’s already a new Month


August 7, 2018

I hope you had time to read, go to the beach, hang out with the kids and manage to have tons of fun. I back to teaching.  I am teaching creative writing and conventional English at an adult education school in Rowland Adult Education.

And as I said trying to finish this website as we speak.  But  is a gift I give to my Brother and Sisters in El Salvador San Salvador.  Were I give value to all the children in El Salvador San Salvador and Centro American (entire world) the kids finish up to High School rather than 9th grade.

Como Empezo IFLAP?

IF Lap = Si Bien el Regazo


Es necesario que los padres tomen la decisión de involucrarse en la educación de sus hijos, convirtiéndose en socios con los maestros para que sus hijos terminen la educación superior.

Como Lo Logramos?

  • Vamos a trabajar en tres niveles educativos; Temprana Edad, Elementar Palvolaria(básica ) , Middle School (Tercer ciclo) y  High School (bachillerato). Empezamos un encuentro para presentar el programa y que los padres y las madres se suscriban al curso.
  • Luego se realizarán 6 talleres y al final  dos encuentros, El primero  donde los padres hablan y  se comunican con el director y los docentes  sobre sus inquietudes, expectativas para encontrar soluciones respecto al tema educativo de sus hijos e hijas.
  • El segundo encuentro es para entregarles dos diplomas uno del instituto Calidad Familiar IF*Lap y otro de la universidad donde invitan a sus hijos para que sean futuros candidatos, pero esto no le garantiza admisión a la universidad. Los temas que se impartirán son:

Sies Talleres en Temprana Edad

  1.  Leccion 1
  2. Leccion   2
  3. Leccion 3
  4. Leccion 4
  5. Leccion 5
  6. Leccion 6

Padres hablan con la Administration sobre sus mission y vision para  escula para  con los estudiantes y padres Graduation



6 talleres para padres que quieren mejorar la educación de sus hijos en el hogar y en escuela.

  • Los padres van a mejorar la comunicación con sus hijos y  maestros para  mejorar  la convivencia familiar y escolar.
  • Esperamos lograr mejor rendimiento escolar en la lenguaje , matemáticas, ciencias, Estudios Sociales  y  reducir  la deserción escolar.


Por ejemplo cuando los padres se involucran en la escuela estamos protegiendo y gestionando  los recursos de nuestros hijos e hijas por ejemplo  sus habilidades.

También cuando  las maestras usan tecnología visual en videos  ayuda a nuestros  hijos e hijas aprender con motivación…EAL quiere decir Español o Ingles como segundo lenguaje. Visual Literacy quiere decir alfabetización visual.



  • En resumen: Las escuelas tienen la capacidad de cambiar la forma en que motivan a los padres a involucrarse en la educación de sus hijos.
  • Instituto de Calidad familia promueve aumentar la participación de los padres en la educación de sus hijos e hijas creando una mejor vida para su economía familia y del país.
  • Los padres aprenderán una variedad de temas que les permitirán comunicarse y dialogar con los maestros debidamente; a como navegar el sistema escolar, ensenándoles que sus hijos e hijas pueden aspirar a ser universitarios y otras informaciones relacionada con el fomento de éxito académico.
  • Ayudando a los padres a crear un ambiente educativo positivo en el hogar y la escuela y así formar un puente entre hogar entre el hogar y la escuela del niño.
  • La participación de los padres debe ser significativa para que todos los participantes formen una efectiva manera de involucrar a los padres en las escuelas. Para que así las familias de bajo o alto ingreso tengan la oportunidad de participar adecuadamente en los recursos que pueden ayudar a sus hijos e hijas a ser competentes en sus estudios.




I am bilingual and love blogging in both languages

This blog is for parents who want guidance on how to communicate with their daughters and sons about their education. We plan vacations for our children, then why not supervise them in what subjects, schools, and universities they are interested in… And if we do not start supporting them from now then you are leaving them alone to do these decisions on their own.

Este blog es para padres que desean orientación sobre cómo comunicarse con sus hijas e hijos sobre su educación. No planificamos vacaciones para nuestros hijos, porque tampoco los supervisamos en qué materias, escuelas y universidades están interesados. Y si no comenzamos el tema con ellos

July 31, 2018

Goals for the blog is to finish the lessons.  The lesson will be up to high school.  Guide to El Salvador, Central America.  And because I include the first country education professional development as well…everybody can learn what is important in the first and third world country when it comes to educating our children.

I can’t believe it two more weeks and back to school.  In my case literally.

Thank you to those following my blogging.  I started institute; this journey in July 2014 when my husband and I decided to go to El Salvador San Salvador.  I met some incredible ladies that don’t give up easily;

to violence and crime. They all too well know what it’s not to trust your neighbors.

It is their character, stamina and emotional resilience that has me still backing out this project done with love and passion for education, liberty, justice and above all truth.  Whereby mothers are yelling and in pain. What I learned:

“Only Mother as for Justice.”

Mothers and Fathers are keeping the face-up inspite of trials and tribulations they’re faced with right now, every day.

Our Central American brother and sisters are going through hardships as is the whole world an immigration fiasco; Chucky cheese would have done a better job at keeping track of families and minors.


julio 31 2018

Las metas para el blog es terminar las lecciones. La lección será hasta la escuela secundaria. Guía de El Salvador, América Central. Y porque incluyo el primer desarrollo profesional de educación en el país también … todos pueden aprender qué es importante en el primer y tercer país del mundo cuando se trata de educar a nuestros niños.

No puedo creerlo dos semanas más y volver a la escuela. En mi caso, literalmente. Gracias a los que siguen mi blogging. Empecé instituto; este viaje en julio de 2014 cuando mi esposo y yo decidimos ir a El Salvador, San Salvador. Conocí a algunas mujeres increíbles que no se dan por vencidas fácilmente; a la violencia y el crimen Todos saben muy bien lo que es no confiar en tus vecinos. Es su carácter, resistencia y resistencia emocional lo que me tiene aún respaldando este proyecto hecho con amor y pasión por la educación, la libertad, la justicia y, sobre todo, la verdad. Por el cual las madres gritan y duelen. Que aprendí:

“Solo madre en cuanto a la justicia”. Las madres y los padres se mantienen a la cara a pesar de las pruebas y tribulaciones que enfrentan en este momento, todos los días. Nuestros hermanos y hermanas centroamericanos están atravesando dificultades, como es el mundo entero, un fiasco de la inmigración; El queso de Chucky habría hecho un mejor trabajo en el seguimiento de familias y menores. Juntos; Unidos somos más !!! 

 "Solo madreS PIDEN justicia".  "No somos Risoco Somos Educados" Navarro
