Let's take an extra second.


Tolerantia


No escuchamos para comprender, escuchamos para contestar.

Si queremos ser escuchados es importante que cultivemos nuestra capacidad de hacerlo. Las relaciones requieren de reciprocidad y de tolerancia, algo que generalmente descuidamos.

Por eso para aprender a convivir con otras personas tenemos que escuchar su otra verdad y no solo nuestra razón. La comunicación es indispensable para escuchar al otro.

UNIT 6. EARLY MODERN SPAIN.


JOHANNES GUTENBERG



A German called Johannes Gutenberg invented a machine in about 1450 which changed history. It also changed the way we find out about history. He invented a printing press; a machine which printed words on paper.


Before the printing press was invented, books were made by hand. To make a book, the words had to be copied onto paper by hand. This work was usually done by monks.


Gutenberg’s invention was very important because it meant that books could be made more easily and cheaply. Many more books were made as a result of the printing press. There were more libraries and bookshops and it became easy to share ideas and information.
