 Article Title :: You Say To-Mah-To, I Say Hueytecuilhuitontli
Specialists tell us there are somewhere in the neighborhood of 6000 languages currently being spoken, which spring from at least 200 families. A reliable source cites the five most widely spoken in descending order, with millions in parentheses, as: Mandarin Chinese (1120), English (480), Spanish (320), Russian (285), and French (265).Toward the other extreme are many you may not have lately run across, such as Livonian (of which there are fewer than a dozen speakers left in the Baltic); the Channel Island languages Jèrriais, Dgèrnésiais, and Sercquiais (still spoken on Jersey, Guernsey, and Sark respectively); Frisian (spoken in parts of Holland and Germany); Friulian (often he  (read full article)

 Article Title :: In Japan - Do You Know Japanese?
Japan really seems to be a foreign culture to our Western minds. You may think you don’t know much about Japan, but in the past few decades there has been increased communication with our neighbor in the Far East. Our great grandparents probably didn’t know nearly as much about Japan as we do.Think about it. I’ll bet you know nearly a dozen Japanese words! Sushi, karaoke, anime, kimono, sake, Suzuki, Toyota, teriyaki, origami and bonsai. That’s ten! How did you do? I’ll bet you knew at least 8 of them, if not all 10. I’m sure you know that a kimono is a traditional Japanese dress that women wear with a sash tied around their waists.You’ve probably had Japanese   (read full article)

 Article Title :: What's the Strangest Thing You've Ever Eaten?
When I asked, “Has anyone ever tried Saino?”; having tasted this species of wild pig called Peccary in English and native to many of the jungles of South America, I did regain a little respect for my “adventuresome” eating. But what brought the house down was my tale of breakfasts in America’s south with fried pork brains scrambled with eggs along with fried slices of pig testicles, known as “mountain oysters” in states like South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia. Mouths dropped open and glazed-over eyes seemed to double in size. Then they started talking.One of the language aspects of most interest to your English language students will be conversation practice. As a   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Evaluating Job Offers for Teaching Abroad
You have decided on teaching abroad so you are off on the job hunt. Aside from the obvious considerations such as what country to work in and what training/qualifications to obtain; there are other things a teachers should consider when looking at potential job offers.There are many factors a teacher considers which will affect whether they accept a position. The most obvious factor would be the content of the position. What is the school asking of you as a teacher? You must ask yourself if the job is interesting and fits into your career plans as a teacher.

 Article Title :: Literature in an ESL Classroom
Professor Colin MacCabe of the University of Exter School of English says that to truly know a language, you must know something of the literature of a language.Literature is intellectually stimulating because a book allows a reader to imagine worlds they are not familiar with. This is done through the use of descriptive language. In order to understand, the reader will create their vision of what the writer is saying. In this sense, the reader becomes a performer or an actor in a communicative event. Using literature versus a communicative textbook changes the learning approach from learning how to say into learning how to mean (grammar vs.   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Visual Learning: Multi-Media in the Classroom
Visuals are a great tool to help with student comprehension as well as make for a more exciting class. Unfortunately, not all classrooms are equipped for this type of learning but most schools will have a multi-media room that can be utilized on an “as needed” basis. In addition, the presentation could involve graphics and images using less technology based methods.Multimedia is various combinations of text, graphics, sound, video and animation. It can be controlled, coordinated and delivered on a computer screen and implies interactivity which means the user is engaged in the presentation of information. In addition, multi-media can act as a more ‘capable peer’   (read full article)

 Article Title :: A French Teacher's Memories: The Dog Ate It.
Any teacher happens to hear: "Sure, I did the exercises, but my dog ate them". Statistically, any dog is fed by paper and ink every other day. Dogs do not eat French exercises and essays only. They also like Maths. They devour English. They nibble at Geography. They chew History. They savour Physics. They bite hundreds of chemical formulas. Take into account that not only one child lives with each dog. The devilish beast wolfs down the whole family's exercise books. I wonder if some dogs have got several stomachs, like the cows. Are there vets who specialize in curing these dogs? I bet they are rich. Whatever the excuse, even true, I had decided that to be accepted, it ha  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Evaluating Resources for Use in the Classroom
Resources are a tool every teacher uses daily in order to enhance the learning environment, motivate students or assist in student comprehension. Resources can be basic materials such as worksheets, presentation materials (PowerPoints, etc.) or even online learning via the web. Deciding which resources to incorporate into the school or classroom take some consideration. When deciding on any resource it is best to look at the usability of the resources. We can’t always go by what we like. Will the material be readily understood by the teachers? In addition, does it have clear instructions for the preparation and incorporation required? Sometimes what seems like a great   (read full article)

 Article Title :: 7 Steps to Better Business English: Choosing a Business English Training Program
His back still a little stiff from the one hour plus flight, Kelly Grant emerged into the maw that is Barcelona’s airport. His Dutch was good, his French fair, his Spanish more than passable, and his American English still rang with a twinge of his fluent German. But this was after all, Spain, bastion of Castellano. He was ready. So what was the language of communication through customs, immigration and for all his day-long business sessions during the month-long series of company negotiations? English. In virtually every country’s business climate, international communications are conducted in English. If your company’s key executives and administrative personnel are not comfortabl  (read full article)

 Article Title :: La Franco Phony - Why the French Won't Speak English
What is it with the French and their fear of the English language? Every couple of years or so there is an ugly backlash against l’anglophonie that crops up like a nasty patch of herpes simplex, and everyone starts scratching at it. Official proclamations are made about how they must protect themselves against the insidious encroachments of English on the sacred territory of the French language.Back in the 80’s it was then Minister of Culture, Jack Lang, who spearheaded an “awareness campaign” to alert French citizens to the dangers of using words like “weekend” and “parking” to substitute perfectly good French words that were already part of their vocabulary. The F  (read full article)
