The coronavirus has been on everyone's lips (everyone's been talking about it) for the last year. When the coronavirus pandemic hit (started), our world completely changed.

Heteronyms in English

2020-11-19T12:45:36+01:00

When learning English, there are a few pitfalls (confusing things, tricks) to be aware of. One of these are heteronyms in English, which are words that are spelled the same, but pronounced differently and with different meanings.

Heteronyms are everywhere (common) in the language, so we've put together a list of some of the most common heteronyms in English that you will see.

Election Vocabulary in English

2020-10-15T10:50:31+01:00

Elections are an important part of political life and an essential part of democracy (a political system where people vote for politicians). Minor (smaller) elections are usually held once a year, while major (larger) elections are held every few years. In the lead up (time before) to an election, there's a lot of news coverage about the election, the candidates (people running for office), and their policies (ideas of how to run things).

Root Work Loqu: to talk, speak

2020-08-27T11:20:58+01:00

There are a lot of words to talk about how we speak, why we speak, and the ways we speak. Some of these words contain the root word loqu, meaning to speak or to talk. Words containing the root word loqu can look difficult at first, but once you see the root word loqu in them, and know that it has something to do with speaking, you may have an easier time figuring them out (understanding them). This is why we love root words! Learning root words makes it easier to figure out what unfamiliar (something you don't know) words [...]
