Olympics Vocabulary in English

2021-08-19T07:34:22+01:00

I've always loved watching the Olympic Games. The Olympics are, in my opinion, a great way to promote (advocate, encourage) international cooperation (working together).

2021-08-11T04:25:18+01:00

Last week on the Bespeaking blog, we talked about basic shapes in English. And we realized that when you're learning a language, sometimes you don't know the simplest (most simple) things.

Knowing how to measure things, especially in your second language, comes in handy (is useful) all the time! How do you talk about measurements in English?

Is English Vocabulary Hard?

2020-11-22T12:55:29+01:00

We're shaking it up a bit (doing something different) this week on the Bespeaking blog! People always ask me if German is a hard language to learn and my answer always goes a little something like this: “To an extent, yes.” The grammar can be quite difficult. But when it comes to English vocabulary words themselves, it's relatively easy. If we are talking about loan words, or words that have been borrowed from another language, English usually takes the cake as the "cool" language to borrow words from. But did you know that these five English vocabulary words are actually [...]
