 Article Title :: Language as Identity
 
English is not just a national language it is a unique global passport.The sameness of language can overcome any identity crisis, sometimes inconveniently. When I arrived in London, fresh from South Africa and desperate to immerse myself in a foreign culture, language became an issue. If I opened my mouth to speak and there was a South African nearby (and there usually was…) they would inevitably gravitate toward me and want to bond.

The concept of a bunch of us hanging out together in London was beyond me.   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Language of the Lens
 
Paris the most beautiful city in the world, was captured and frozen in time by the great master of photojournalism, Henri Cartier-Bresson, who brought beauty and a new dimension to an ordinary street scene. Photography, he once wrote is a spontaneous impulse which comes from perpetually looking, and which seizes the instant and its eternity.Henri elevated “snap shooting” to the level of a refined and disciplined art. He exclusively used the Leica 35mm rangefinder cameras equipped with normal 50mm lenses or occasionally a telephoto for landscapes. He was one of the first photographers to shoot in the 35mm format and helped to develop the photojournalistic "street photography  (read full article)

 Article Title :: English Intonation: Two-word Expressions
 
Listen and Learn: The Intonation of Two-Word ExpressionsMany people think that pronunciation is what makes up an accent. It may be that pronunciation is very important for an understandable accent. But it is intonation that gives the final touch that makes an accent correct or native.Intonation is the "music" of a language, and is perhaps the most important element of a correct accent. Often we hear someone speaking with perfect grammar, and perfect formation of the sounds of English but with a little something that gives her away as not being a native speaker.Therefore, it is necessary to realize that there is more than the correc  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Reading in Russian: Some Tips to Help You Read Correctly
 
When we are learning any foreign language, we are bound to compare it with our mother tongue (let's assume that yours is English).Learning Russian has already brought you pleasant surprises -- for example, remember the moment when you found out that spelling in Russian is much simpler than in English? It means that it is easier for a learner to start reading. You don't agree and think that reading Russian is difficult? Then imagine a native Russian-speaker learning English and trying to figure out how to read double-o in words like "book", "floor", or "blood". If he hasn't yet heard these words and the teacher is far away at the moment, learning how to read takes tremendous effort.  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Learning A Foreign language!
 
There are several reasons to learn a foreign language. Firstly, it is a well-known fact that by learning a new foreign language we get acquainted a new culture. So this is a way to become more intelligent and get to know more interesting facts about other countries and societies. This may be a poser if you are not interested in learning new cultures but still, if to get a closer look at the problem, you may find more reasons to do it. For example, you travel abroad to have a nice rest, let’s say to Paris, and you don’t know even a single word in French. You can’t expect every Frenchman to know English; you’ll for sure meet a person that is not familiar with it. Then, just think a  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Where is the Chinese Alphabet?
 
In any single month, more than 10,000 people search for the “Chinese alphabet” on the internet.Question is:Does the Chinese language have an alphabet?If so, where is it?Why don’t I “see” it?To answer the above questions, let’s look at how Chinese writing evolved over the ages.At the beginning, societies created symbols to refer to simple things.

 Article Title :: IELTS Examination Tip - Timing Yourself
 
While the IELTS Examination is carefully monitored by proctors, no one will tell you how to use the time you are allotted for each section of the test. Watch your watch, or the clock in the examination room, closely. The examiners time each portion of the test very strictly. It’s important that you monitor your own progress carefully, so you don’t leave portions of the test unfinished – or even unstarted!The IELTS Listening test is more or less self-timing, in that the tape is played without pauses. Even so, making the wisest use of your time makes a difference.- At the end of the Listening test, you are allowed 10 minutes to transfer your answers to the answer sheet.   (read full article)

 Article Title :: How is Learning Chinese Writing Different From Learning a Western Language?
 
In the modern Chinese writing system, each character is a form of its own, representing a particular sound and at least one meaning.In other words, each Chinese symbol is a unity of form, sound and meaning.To learn Chinese writing, you need to know each Chinese symbol or character individually. You will need a vocabulary of at least 3,000 characters to understand 90% of what you read.A vocabulary of 4-5,000 characters allows you to understand almost everything written in Chinese in the modern context. Although there are more than 60,000 characters listed in the largest Chinese dictionaries most of them are ancient symbols and no longer in use.Only a very small   (read full article)
