2021-04-25T21:34:26+01:00

Do you wear glasses or contact lenses? If so, then you probably need to go to the eye doctor every once in a while (from time to time). My vision (sight) is pretty bad, and the first time I went to the eye doctor in Germany, I definitely wished that I had had some vocabulary for the eye doctor! My first time getting my eyes checked in Germany was very stressful, since I didn't know what to expect and was working in my second language. This week, we want to save you some of the stress, so we've put together [...]

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.

Table Manners in English

2021-04-08T08:52:44+01:00

We have a saying in English -- "Manners maketh man." It means that your manners make you who you are and help to form (shape, make) someone's opinion of you (what they think of you). Manners are things like saying please and thank you, but having good manners doesn't stop there. Manners are also how you conduct yourself (how you act) in public and especially when you're eating. Having good table manners is a great thing to have, but what counts as good table manners varies (changes) from country to country and from culture to culture. So what are some [...]

Elections are an important part of political life and an essential part of democracy (a political system where people vote for politicians).

Root Word It: To Go

2020-07-23T09:50:23+01:00

We've said it before, and we'll say it again. Root words are a great way to learn a language!

Contronyms in English: Janus Words Part II

2020-07-15T21:45:21+01:00

We all know that English can be a complicated language. This counts double (is twice as true) when it comes to contronyms. Contronyms, also called Janus words, are words that have two distinct (different), opposite meanings.

Persian Loan Words in English

2020-06-11T17:38:59+01:00

English is such a wonderful mix of all different languages.  Many words in English come from different languages, and we call these words loan words. One language we get many loan words from is Persian. Persian and English are actually related languages, since they're both part of the Indo-European language family.
