 Article Title :: If You Think English is Difficult Try Mandarin – Part 2
 
Several factors make learning Chinese a considerably more formidable task than learning another Germanic or Romance languages. Studying a foreign language is an excellent way for English and other language teachers to improve their own teaching. It also forces you into the role of a student so you can experience first hand the problems, difficulties and challenges your EFL learners face in your classes. Don't believe me? Then look at what happened to me …… continued from part 1 …A couple of students confuse a pronunciation with the name of a Kung Fu TV series actor. The teacher doesn’t get it. They talk about Jackie Chan as the mood of the class lightens. We try a fe  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Cornish Never Died
 
The subject of dead languages has come up a lot for me lately. In a recent conversation, I mentioned my desire to learn Cornish, a Celtic language closely related to Welsh, and the response I got was "Oh, yeah, that's a dead language, right?" I quickly came to the defense of Cornish, a language alive and well by my standards, but what began was a lively debate on what exactly constituted a dead language and whether or not Cornish fit the suit (yes, that was a Johnny Bravo reference).I won't get into all of that particular debate now (articles on that subject are fast on the heels of this one) but I'd like to explain my take on Cornish, why it never died and why it is alive and wel  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Condition of English in Bangladesh: Second Language or Foreign Language
 
Mother tongue or first language is perhaps the most favorite thing for any person. The question of language has resulted into many conflicts and discontentment. The prime example of such discontentment is the Language Movement of 1952 in Bangladesh. On the other hand we can not live in isolation. We have to be in contact with the speakers of other languages. Bangladesh is considered to be a monolingual country in which more than 98% of the population is speakers of Bangla language. However, there are more than ten languages in such a small country like Bangladesh. Monipuri, Urdu, Chakma, Santali, Garo, Rakhain, Tipra- are just some of the other languages present in Bangladesh.The i  (read full article)

 Article Title :: English In The New World
 
From its early British heritage, the English language has evolved and it will continue to do so as it creeps its way into societies all over the world. The English you know may not be what another person, who lives in another country, knows. Different countries have developed their own unique way of using English. For example, the Australian English, a dialect I have grown accustomed to, uses the letter ‘ u 's in certain words. They use suffixes such as – ise instead of – ize as well as – t instead of – ed . Below are some examples of the common differences between how Australians spell words and how these words are spelt elsewhere.Centre rather than Center Endeavour  (read full article)

 Article Title :: It's a North-South Thing, Y'all!
 
Travelling around the country you sure get some different accents and different ways of putting words together. Sometimes the same thing is spoken differently in different areas.For example: Up North, you rub snuff... down South, you dip it.I live about 60 miles from Washington, D.C. in West Virginia. I moved here from Virginia Beach about 18 years ago. I was shocked when I heard that someone was going to get some Mexicans to eat at work. I found out that's what they call Chili Dogs in this area. It sure put my mind at ease. For a little while, I thought I was working with cannibals!I grew up in Appalachia. The folk up there don't go fishing..they go feesching. They d  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Terrestrial Translator
 
Star Trek has a wonderful device called the universal translator. It translates spoken and written alien languages into English, and would probably translate different human languages, if there were more than one in that specifically created future. Though it doesn’t know how to translate isolated foreign words like Russian or French, it is a truly marvelous technology. Almost never fails. Never loses power, even when the rest of the ship does, same as the artificial gravity. No moving parts, in fact, no parts at all. It is just ‘around’, always there, always doing its job without anyone having to think about it. A little like the Internet is becoming now, just a banal fact of life.  (read full article)

 Article Title :: How to Evaluate Foreign Language Courses
 
The internet is full of a wide variety of Spanish language courses and the decision of which one to purchase can be overwhelming. Do you follow the traditional paths and go with Pimsleur, Berlitz or Rosetta Stone? All are great products, but they carry a pretty hefty price tag. What's more, the "big guys" teach a very formal style of Spanish...not the more traditional conversational style that sounds and feels much more natural to a native speaker. Coversational Spanish is much easier to learn with less repetition and far better results. How about the Spanish language courses with crazy promises that you'll be able to learn Spanish in just a few days? Sound to good to be true? That's beca  (read full article)
