I don't know about you, but when I was at school I was almost permanently bored. Most of my teachers had a brilliant knack of turning everything into something grey and dull. Whether it were Shakespeare, chemical reactions or maths everything seemed to meld into one big heap.
The one teacher...
How many times have we caught ourselves humming popular songs in languages that we are not able to speak? Definitely English is not the only language for pop music; there is a number of songs in European Languages such as Spanish (ie Donde Estas Yolanda), Italian (ie Amore mio), German (ie Du...
One of the best things about teaching English is not what the student learns, but what I get to hear about. Engineering, hairdressing, economics etc etc.
My knowledge of haircuts and styles has increased to the point now where I can say rather than being clueless, I am a bit less clueless. In...
When I first read the English version of Harry Potter in 13, I found that English is more mysterious than I thought. Like Chinese, it also has a range of vocabularies describing one item, such as facial expression.
I would like to invite you to work with me together to explore these amusing...
I find that the Cambridge Latin Course makes learning Latin interesting for students. The stories are well-written and include an excellent variety of vocabulary and grammar points.
It is a fact that learning a foreign language increases cognitive abilities such as critical thinking, creativity and problem solving. However, the idea that speaking a particular language affects thought is rather controversial. Apparently, because languages differ in their terms for hue and...

Here are some useful web site: www.british-sign.co.ukwww.britishsignlanguage.comSome...
I have been teaching one to one for five years now. One thing I have learnt in that time is that there is more than one way to crack a nut!
The great advantage of one to one is that it is student focused. For example, I have had one student who had little formal education in her native country....
I have always been fascinated by the way our brains work and how we learn. I really struggled to learn at school yet in later years achieved a Distinction in the Strategic Management module of my MBA. So why is that some people find learning another language quite simple while others really...
It has been said that your heart is revealed through the things that you say; your thoughts, dreams, obsessions, desires and regrets all originate in your heart. If I were someone who absolutely loved jazz music, then you would know about it because I wouldn't stop talking about it.
When we fall...
English as a Foreign Language

Why study English?
Maybe you need it to study at University level

I encourage you to take a look at these websites:
An overview of several landscapes and famous sites in France:...

It's something I've heard hundreds of times: Arabic is the hardest language in the world. Hearing this may put you off learning the language; it...

I recommend The Seeds of Speech by Jean Aitchison. It is a fascinating book about how speech began. Would you believe that:
