So this conversation will be discussing with different people about the diference between "saber" and "conocer". I don't really have any discussion questions ahead of time...but I want to ask questions like:
"Como tu ta?"
y "Cuales la diferencia entre "conocer" y "saber"?"
I'm anticipating a few interesting, but not really difficult conversation.

My capstone project focused on the history and overall establishment of a local South Philadelphia historic hardware store through the means of a short documentary and website.
For my capstone, I decided to improve my joint history and English benchmark from my junior year and completely renovate the website that I created for the project. A website alone seemed too quick and easy, so I compiled a short documentary that took hours of work throughout the school year to complete. In the documentary, I focus on what the store is, what it is like, the history of the store, and I touch on many other aspects of the store via narration and interview answers from the manager of the store. The website focuses on most of the same things as the documentary, but offers further exploration of the store and the history behind it with photos and text. Included in the website is also store information. Through the process of this project, I spent time planning the website’s features, planning and conducting narration and interview question, filming, and film editing. Through this project, I learned many things about the hardware store that I did not know before and also gained a lot of learning experiences from web design and film editing as well as storytelling.

Yet again I was able to interview my old spanish teacher, Meastra Sandra.
In this blogpost I have learned that the way that people talk has changed over the years significantly in both languages. Through these blog posts as a whole I have learned that the two languages are actually very similar to each other.
Another place that you can find more about how the language has changed over the recent years is here.
I just continued to do what I always did and speak to people about their day. Then as soon as I asked for a "chiste" they either didn't know one, didn't understand, or just didn't say anything.
The only flaw with this conversation is that no one wanted to give me a joke. Maybe they don't value jokes in Spanish speaking countries. I tried to Google a few jokes, but I never understood the jokes. I guess I could have kept trying, but after ten people stopped replying after the mention of a joke, I felt like I hurt them in some way. One person not knowing a joke is fine. But when everyone just stops replying, it seems like something bigger.
I spoke with a male from Columbia named Alejandro. I did not choose this person, this person chose me and I seen that spanish was his native language so it worked well for the both us beings though I wanted to learn/work on my spanish and he wanted to learn/work on his english.
I learned about his favorite type of music and what type of songs he likes and I found out that he is a fan of a band called "Def Leppard" and he talked about what songs he likes. I found it pretty funny how since I said I liked music and I am from philadelphia, he sent me a youtube video of a music video of a song called "Streets of Philadelphia" by Bruce Springsteen. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4z2DtNW79sQ&ob=av2e)
This interaction helped me move towards achieving my personal goal because I wanted to learn about people in other countries music tastes and not only did I learn about their music taste but I shared with them the music we listen to in America. He didn't know who Nicki Minaj was so I sent him the "Super Bass" video and he liked it.
What specifically did you do well according to your goals/expectations?
I asked questions about what type of music he liked.
What specifically do you need to improve on? (Quote specific things you said or did and what you would have done or said if you could do it again)
I think next time, I need to work on asking my partner to speak in spanish because I always give up and start speaking english whenever they start to speak english because I understand that just like me, they also want to learn a new language so I have to be fair.
Goal:Effects of the language in persons life.

¿Cuándos uso español?

Yo-Hola chica! Tienes un minuto?
Yo-necesito preguntar para el blog.
Yo-Primero, cómo aprendes español?
Ella-Yo soy de Puerto Rico, así que crecí escuchando y me metieron en un programa de inmersión en español en la escuela primaria.
Yo-Tan hablas español desde que infancia...muy interesante.Explicas la programa por favor?
Ella-Así que el padre puede decidir si o no para el niño estar en el programa. Pero básicamente se trata de todas las clases (ciencias, matemáticas, escritura, etc) todos en español. Crees que va a ser duro, pero tiene un hijo a aprender cosas más rápido.
Yo-Muy interesante…¿Tienes la clase de español ahora?
Yo-Yo también...la clase de español tres.¿Qué numero tu tienes?
Yo-si si..yo tengo la clase próximo año.¿Qué haces en la clase?
Ella-Trabajamos en la gramática y la conjugación de diferentes períodos de tiempo. Para que las cosas gramaticales en lugar de la palabra como un todo.
Yo-Si, yo hago cosas similares en español tres.¿La clase esta amable con tu vida diario?
Yo- explicas por favor
Ella-Lo hace porque me ayude a ampliar mi vocaulario y mi programador para cuando en mi día que entran en contacto con alguien que hable español. Ya sea un visitante en la escuela o uno de mis amigos me ven en la calle.
yo-Bien bien…la clase ayuda en conversaciones similares a eso...jaja.¿Cuándo uso español?
Ella-En español clase jajaja Pero cuando voy a mi tienda de la esquina que tiene los puertorriqueños en el mismo, cuando veo a mi familia española o cantar canciones en español.
Yo-si si..¿hablante dos lenguajes esta bien?¿qué son unas ventajas?
Ella-Sí. Es muy divertido. Sobre todo cuando se los pone a ambos juntos. Pero sus ventajas es que puede una ventaja en las personas desde la lengua más común que se va a enseñar en las escuelas es el español. Me siento como el idioma está creciendo y va a ser el segundo al Inglés.
Yo-si si están completo gracias!
I contented talking to Brianna Perrin. Somewhere between this conversation and the last I considered talking to a stranger but I thought it would be better to continue with the same person. From this conversation I learned what to expect in spanish four next year. I also learned about immersion programs. I also learnedd how Brianna benefits from being bilingual. This time around it was easier to come up with questions without having to write them in english first. I'm not sure if that is because I'm getting better at writing questions or because my goals are easier to reach. I still feel like my conversations are more like interviews. So that what I'm definitely going to try to improve on for the last conversation. Maybe for the last conversation I won't plan out questions, just have a normal conversation.
Secondaria- High school
aprendar- to learn
¿tu eres estudiantes de universidad?- Are you a student of a university?
From these conversations I did learn a lot about education. I learned that Drake goes to a technical school that only last 1 year. I also learned that Argentina has a similar school system as ours, they go to school till they are 18 years old. College is also 4 years in Argentina and according to Mariano it isn't that hard to get accepted into. You can learn more by reading the chats I posted.
From the internet source I found that public schools in Argentina are free and similar to America kids have to go to school when they are 6. Also school is only 4 hours a day there and they attend secondary school for 5 years.
