Once again, Friday has come! If like me weather conditions are motivating you to stay in for the night, have a look at this article for some movie night inspiration!
Christmas is coming closer and everywhere you can already see signs of the most wonderful time of the year. Holiday lights are hung, Christmas markets pop up and spread the smell of punch and gingerbread and people are busy with buying presents. But Christmas is not celebrated everywhere the same – each country has its own traditions that make the holiday season special.
Have you ever got so fed up in your life that the dream of living in a different country seemed like everything you needed? Have you ever felt jealous of your friends whenever you saw their pictures in several different places and thought how much you would like to be in those pictures yourself?
Well, most of those pictures don’t tell much of the journey your friends took for them to be taken. Months of preparation, leaving their comfort zone, saying goodbye to family and friends. All the anxiety, all the stress.
This article doesn’t aim on changing your mind about traveling – it is intended as a list of factors that you must take into consideration in order to prepare yourself for traveling. This way, you will be able to be mentally readier and take the best out of the experience. The second and third part of this article will be published here in exactly one and two weeks, on the 11th and the 18th of December.
December just started and Christmas is approaching really fast, which also means shopping of Christmas presents for beloved ones. Maybe it also happened to you that you bought a present for your family or a friend and it turned out to be a waste of money – no one ever used it. When you imagine that in other parts of the world are children who don’t get any presents, it feels a little bit wrong to spend money on something which is going to end up in a garbage.
Foreign English is listening to a joke told by a Brit and missing the clue just because of one word. The embarrassment when you don’t know how to react to the small talk in a lift. The first time you’ve been to the Isles and you start to wonder if you’ve ever actually learnt English before.
Our calendar’s fourth edition brings you the most delicious recipes, chosen from amazing cooking bloggers from all over the world.
Stay tuned, find out what people are cooking for this season, give birth to your own creations and share them with your family and friends.
Good Friday, people! Again! Finally!
You know what it means, right? It’s the day for another TGIF Music!
Last week, we had an amazing collection of Flashmobs and today, as we promised, we got some awesome acapella songs for you! I hopw you enjoy them!
OK, OK, this is quite a dull article about sort of fun you may have using Google Translate. For some major languages it offers an automated voice which can read your input. But now there’s a creativish way to make it speak with a foreign accent for you. You take the spelling of language A, and try to fit a text in language B into it. Then you tell Google Translate the text is in language A, and press the magical button. I’ve prepared a couple of texts for you. Enjoy!
A burning wheel that is rolling down the hill at night, devil-like creatures that frighten people with bells and iron chains and mysterious white lines on the roads. These scenes sound like horror movies but have very special meanings for Austria and can even be live-changing.
During December, Mexican homes and local markets are filled with the smell of sweet, fruit-based brews. The selection is endless. However, nothing awakes the Christmas spirit faster than the ever-classic ponche de tejocotes (punch made with Mexican hawthorn). Grab yourself a cup and don’t forget to add stick of sugarcane to give it the final touch!
