The Amazing Race Educa-Tivities for All: Corona Virus News

Long Island festival.


“We are the world.  We are the children.”

Children (and adults) will “open their eyes” to this activity and see just how easy the study of these five languages can be.  Students who just started one of these languages will accelerate, which is what all language students desire.  So put your foot on the accelerator of knowledge and share this free activity with others.  Kids will love doing the “Tivities.”  From this beginning all people can learn hundreds of words from the word groupings easily.

People will learn more and children will be watching Ariana Grande sing the great hit of an American singer that our nation watched in the 1960s, among other things.

R-E-S-P-E-C-T For Everyone Everywhere

And ventilator is ventilateur in French, ventilatore in Italian, and ventilador in both Spanish and Portuguese.  It’s the or group that you will soon see that has slight changes in the word ending.  I told you things could be easy!

French Activity for Children

Learn all the words in French.  The words can be learned in 6 lessons of four chapters each.

Find a free language program to study as you learn the words in each of the 24 groupings.

French singer to know.  My recommendation is Edith Piaf whose voice amazed the world when we only had television, radio, and movies.

Song La Vie en Rose and search Edith Piaf in Carnegie Hall.

Try also Non, je ne regrette de rien.  Find a video with the words in English as she sings in French.

Select two places to study in a French speaking country.  See Trip Advisor Things to do in France if you select France.

Go to USA Learns (www.usalearns.org).

There are other free language programs on the internet.

“Who should use USA Learns? Immigrants and other adults seeking to learn basic English or improve their English proficiency can benefit from USA Learns.  The target audience is adults with no or limited English language skills who are not inclined to attend traditional classroom programs or use other materials or classes available for a fee; it will target those adults with limited means and those  who cannot attend classes because of difficulty with schedules, transportation, or other barriers.  While the site is designed for independent use, teachers and tutors can also find instructional materials that can be used in classroom and individual instructional settings.  The Web site has an online management system available for teacher and tutor use. “

USA Learns

USALearns was an outgrowth of a project that was conceived by the U.S. Department of Education (ED), Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE), Division of Adult Education and Literacy (DAEL)

About US

Today Martin Danenberg is a well-known blogger writing about history, the Holocaust, social justice, politics, and truth.  His articles appear in Jewish Business News in Israel (150) and The Force 2020 DDT.  His work is read in Congress and around the world.

Martin Danenberg taught in GED programs and was the last teacher in the Astoria and South Jamaica Houses before 2000 when he retired.  His last site was in the old Boys High School in the Ebbets Field GED Program (Marcy and Putnam Streets in Bedford Stuyvesant).  His students who are now adults today will remember him as Marty.

Becoming Profesor Martin Danenberg “El Quijote del GED” in retirement was accomplished by teaching in the Consulate of El Salvador in Brentwood, New York and by reaching out to all Hispanic communities where he collaborated with ASPIRA of New York and wrote articles in the leading Spanish newspapers across our nation.  When he was the “profesor” in the consulate, he opened the door to everyone from all nations including providing help to people from Haiti in French.  His project, given to the Central Islip Public Library in 2004, was in English, Spanish, and French. 

Martin’s intervention in early 2007 saved the GED Testing of NY State as his actions led to meetings in the legislature in Albany and then Governor Eliot Spitzer transferred $2.1 million into the budget.

Martin Danenberg partners with the Sean Bell Foundation.  And has had an important relationship with the Washington Bureau of the N.A.A.C.P.

Martin Danenberg is the author of books and e-books that can be found on Amazon (Martin N Danenberg) and Amazing Race Books (e-books

in all the languages in the activities).

Martin was in close touch Luis Ducass, the executive director of the United Bodegas of America,  who remembered Martin’s work when Martin collaborated with the Consulate of the Dominican Republic in 2003 and this paved the way for providing these activities to help people across New York City.  Radhames Rodriguez is president of the United Bodegas of America.  And there was cooperation with the Bodega and Small Business Group (Executive Director Zulay Mateo).

SUPPORT-YOUR-LOCAL-BODEGA during this crisis.

William and Valerie Bell are the co-founders of the Sean Bell Foundation.  William Bell and I go to events together (Paterson, New Jersey, Yonkers, the Bronx, and Manhattan, including the 100th Anniversary of the N.A.A.C.P Convention).

We also have a GED-TASC-High School Equivalency (HSE) and we have a program for the equivalency program of Puerto Rico which is in Spanish. 

TASC-HSE Program for New York and other states.
