  • Lexical Database of Mexico’s Energy Sector. Beginning in 2014, the new energy legislation of Mexico introduced hundreds of new terms and redefined many others. Some of these terms are not yet legally defined, such as Empresa Productiva del Estado. The database, with upwards of 2000 terms, permits customized glossaries, such as the Bilingual Glossary of Mexico’s Power Industry (prepared for the Gulf Coast Power Association for its Mexico City conference held on May 2, 2016.).

    To download sample pages from this Glossary, click here.

    To inquire about becoming a sponsor of this project, or about the preparation of a custom glossary, contact us at info@energia.com or (832) 434-3928.

  • Workshops on Bilingual Proficiency for Energy Professionals —Workshops on Advanced English Proficiency have been held in Mexico in the private sector and in several government agencies, including CNH, CRE, Pemex and IMP. As an introduction to these workshops, we have prepared a video series. Drawing on linguistic theory and decades of listening to native Spanish speakers speak English, and native English speakers speak Spanish, these videos offer a fresh look at the challenges of bilingual proficiency.

Speakers of a 2nd language may go for decades without accurately hearing that language. With the help of linguistics, once the Mind is taught what to listen for, then the Ear begins to hear. Finally, when the Ear hears, the Vocal Cavity will echo what is heard in speech. Counter-intuitively, the starting point for learning to speak another language is to be found in understanding the phonological expectations of one’s native tongue.

Videos based on “The Thinking Person’s Guide to 2nd Language Acquisition.”

Watch Video #1

What are common issues in 2nd language acquisition? Why do native Spanish speakers say /es.treet/ and /es.top/? The fluid mechanics of language. The intervocalic consonant.
