Well I’m still trying to find an interview subject for that class assignment. Person in charge of the school language labs is trying to set something up, but the person he suggested and said was willing hasn’t replied to my email or contacted me.
I did find a potentially really useful website
basically you sign up, say what language you know and what language you’re trying to learn and can find native speakers of the language who want to learn your language. From there you arrange times to meet and talk either face to face or online via skype, aim or other messenging service. So they help you with their language and you help them with yours and maybe make a new friend, but everyone ends up more educated for it.
do you ever read a fic that is so much better than the actual canon that you get angry

Got a hold of the guy in charge of the language lab who is going to try and pair me up with an exchange student for the interview. Gonna be a fun hour plus drive across town to where the language lab is.
Would still make so much more sense to have students pair up and interview each other over skype.
Found some old art assignments wondering if anyone would be interested in one of them
As a college student, currently really hungry with nothing to eat, I understand how hard it can be to get food.

So, I’ve composed a list of recipes and resources that will fit a college kid’s budget and appetite. Don’t go hungry! <3

Teen Wolf has a launched a website for “Teen Wolf fans”, which aims to have fans upload their fanwork—including fanfic, fanwork, music, poems, and meta.
This is NOT a safe place for Teen Wolf fans (or any fans for that matter) to gather, and post their fanwork. MTV and Teen Wolf reserve the right to use your creations, and make profit from them. I, personally, find this unacceptable. Your creations, are your creations. Not theirs.
As written in the User Content Submission Agreement:
In connection with all User Content you submit using the User Content Submission Features, you grant to MTV, the Parent Companies and the Affiliates, the unqualified, unrestricted, unconditional, unlimited, worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual and royalty free right, license, authorization and permission, in any form or format, on or through any media or medium and with any technology or devices now known or hereafter developed or discovered, in whole or in part, to host, cache, store, maintain, use, reproduce, distribute, display, exhibit, perform, publish, broadcast, transmit, modify, prepare derivative works of, adapt, reformat, translate, and otherwise exploit all or any portion of your User Content on the Site (regardless of the Device through which the Site may be accessed) and any other channels, services, and other distribution platforms, whether currently existing or existing or developed in the future, of MTV, the Parent Companies and the Affiliates (collectively, the “Platforms”), for any purpose whatsoever (including, without limitation, for any promotional purposes) without accounting, notification, credit or other obligation to you, and the right to license and sub-license and authorize others to exercise any of the rights granted hereunder to MTV, the Parent Companies and Affiliates, in our sole discretion.
What exactly does this mean?
It means that they are going to use your work, your creations, for promotion and advertisement for their show—to earn themselves money—but you will NOT earn anything in return.
You are legitimately handing over your hard work, so that they can get money, and no royalties will come to you. They can do whatever they want with your work.
Furthermore, please also note that MTV, and MTVteenwolf do NOT respect slash in any nature whatsoever. Now, they may pretend that they care about all fans, however, that is a LIE. I honestly don’t want to see innocent fans fall into their lies and promises that all fans are accepted.
Slash is huge, but they do NOT respect it. So, do not waste your time trying to put your slash work on their site. They do not appreciate it, nor do they appreciate you.
First off, Teen Wolf queerbaits. This is the first thing that should tell you immediately that Teen Wolf does not respect slash. They use fans, mostly the fans of slash pairings, to earn themselves recognition and money, and then treat us like nothing.
Second, I suspect most of you have already heard about Sterek material being banned from conventions. Now, while they may want you to believe that they have nothing to do with bans, and that those bans are put into place by the conventions and the actors agents, MTV and the Teen Wolf PR team are most definitely responsible for these bans.
They have no problem banning things in relation to a popular homosexual pairing, yet they openly allow heterosexual parings to be talked about at cons, as well as they allowed fanart and fanwork of other heterosexual pairings to be signed.
Teen Wolf does NOT respect all fans.
The Collective will be a place where fanwork of heterosexual nature will be posted without a big deal, but you will most likely find that slashwork will not be acceptable in most forms. They may, at first, allow some slash work to be posted. However, things will change. Please, do not allow yourself to be tricked and used.
The Collective, is just a way for them to get attention. Teen Wolf is successful because of social media. It’s a huge social show, and the fans built that. However, their social media ratings are indeed falling, which I suspect is the reason this site has been created. Not because they care about fans.
They want more attention, more viewership, better ratings. This is an attempt to do so, and they are going to use fans to get better ratings. This is all a ploy to take your work, use it, and get earn themselves a pay off.
As stated in their introduction piece, they say: ”We encourage any and all “Teen Wolf” fans to sign up for The Collective and share your thoughts, opinions, and talents with us.”
However, they’ve made it quite clear that they do not care for our thoughts and opinions when they don’t suit them. Constructive criticism is ignored. When we bring up plot holes, and certain storylines that do not make sense, they ignore us and tell us that they run the show.
When we point out gross things like the non-con and abusive scenes between various couples, they ignore us as well, and continue stanning for these couples, claiming how they are cute and romantic.
As I said before, do NOT allow yourself to be fooled. They do not care about fans. They care about money, which is what they earn by keeping Teen Wolf in a high social media infused bracket.
I encourage ALL fans, to just keep posting their fanwork (of all kinds) here on Tumblr. Share your artwork here. Share your meta here. Share your opinions here.
Here on Tumblr, things cannot be monitored and sculpted to fit MTVteenwolf’s vision of what’s acceptable.
I also encourage ALL fans to post their fanfic on Archive of Our Own (or other fanfiction oriented sites). Ao3 accepts all work, and most definitely slash work.
MTV, and MTVteenwolf have used us for as long as Teen Wolf has been on air. It’s time we take a stand. Please do not allow yourself to be used and exploited by using The Collective. This, in itself, is just a way for them to make money while spitting on you and your hard work.
[Also, please spread the word about The Collective gaining immediate ownership of the work submitted on their site. Dedicated and innocent fans should not have their work stolen.]
Be safe and wise, Teen Wolf fans.
Sounds like the Borg. In name and behavior.
So I’m taking a beginning spanish class online. And the teacher just posted this announcment and instructions for an assignment due Sunday
“1. *Choose an interviewee. Arrange to interview a native speaker of Spanish who has immigrated to the U.S. *Family members, girlfriends/boyfriends, tutors…
Sounds wierdly racist as well. Like;
"Pick a Spanish-speaker who’s just arrived in the country. No, they can’t be someone you already know and who is close enough to you to want to volunteer their time like that, but don’t worry, because these people have all the time in the world to help you with your projects and are basically just props to make your modern-languages course more interesting!"
I don’t know, maybe I’m overthinking it, but at least in the UK it would be considered really rude and dodgy to just accost someone for an interview like that.
I’m in the US, and in a city with a large Hispanics population and I find it really rude and dodgy. I get the idea that we need to practice speaking spanish, and since we’re not in an actual class room we have to find other ways, but cutting off things like Skype and facetime don’t help. Really it would make more sense to have students pair up and interview each other via online chats(which is apparently good enough for the oral midterm and finals) but not good enough for this assignment.
If it was just the one I would say fuck it and risk taking a 0 but there’s two interviews and think we’re not supposed to use the same person for each,.
Especially since it’s not just asking for “five minutes of their time” it’s asking for them to set aside a block of their day, to either travel to you (or you to travel to them), to be recorded on a dictaphone, to possibly have to do multiple takes…
It would make a hell of a lot more sense to have the students pair off and interview each other. I’m doing German, rather than Spanish, and our course fairly deliberately has a policy of not bothering native speakers, since it’s rude to data-mine people. Even when we were on a field course in Germany, we didn’t get set assignments to interview people, we just got timetables of talks and things that the local university and museums were holding, and told to go along and listen and participate in the Q+A sessions afterwards if we had any relevant questions. So we picked up loads of really interesting vocab (Lots of stuff about glassblowing and the national parks!) without having to sit people down and do the usual “So, what’s your name? And where do you work?” stuff.
I will bet a real English pound that what happens is that ONE friendly Spanish-speaker ends up being the interviewee for about three quarters of the class.
It sounds like an utterly perverse assignment - Hope that you can either find some way of doing it without massively causing offence, or can get back to the tutor and tell them why it’s such an offensive and asinine assignment.
Actually we’re supposed to videotape it and both the interviewee and I are supposed to be visible in the recording. Yeah this is a horrible horrible assignment. I sent an email to the class asking if they had any ideas on how to find someone, cc’ed the teacher on it. pointing out I don’t know anyone who meets the criteria and it’s rude to ask random strangers. No response so far, but yes I will be complaining to the school about this assignment. It would make more sense to pair students up to interview each other, via skype or video conference.
