The Importance of Teaching Literature

Слика
Most people assume literature is an important part of education. But not everyone really thinks about why that is. The importance of literature on teaching lies in its ability to foster critical reading, build valuable skills, and expand students' worldviews. ·Literature in the ClassroomIn today’s fact-obsessed culture, the importance of literature on teaching and the classroom is sometimes questioned. Why bother having kids read stories, spend their time with books about things and events that aren’t even real? Why not just teach them what they need to know and send them on their way? Of course, to most educators these questions seem ludicrous. Of course literature is important—why would it have such a central place in the curriculum if it wasn’t? But you may not realize in just how many ways literature really does contribute to a child’s education. Because education is and should be about more than passing on dry information; it’s also about fostering critical thinking skills and …

April fool – the language of jokes and tricks

Слика
April 1st is known in many Western countries as ‘April Fool’s Day’. The idea is to trick other people, to try to make them believe things that are not true. If you succeed, you shout ‘April fool!’ at the person you have tricked. In honour of April Fool’s Day, this post will look at some words and phrases connected with this custom.

One important thing is to remember that weplay tricks onsomeone (we don’t ‘make’ or ‘do’ them). The tricks are oftenpractical jokes(using actions instead of words), and they are almost alwaysharmless– they are intended to be fun. Other words for this kind of trick areprankorhoax, although the word ‘hoax’ can also be used for more serious, unpleasant tricks in the same way as the wordsfraudordeceit.
Children often like to kid or dupe (trick) their friends on April Fool’s day with simple jokes such as pretending that their shoelaces are undone or that there is a spider on their head.

First Impressions: Belgrade, Serbia

Слика
Belgrade has been described by some as Berlin-like, but the Serbian capital has a charm all its own. BELGRADE, Serbia – Perched on the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, Belgrade feels like a grittier Prague — unpolished but appealing, with a burgeoning design and art scene and an active nightlife. It comes as no surprise then that Serbia's historic capital and largest city draws young travelers looking for affordable and under-the-radar experiences. But what surprised this seasoned (and sober) traveler was the food scene, a mix of old-world favorites and lively establishments. Here's how I took it all in on my first time in town.  1. Any meal that starts with olives makes me happy, even breakfast. The buffet at Metropol Palace Hotel is an Eastern European delight: olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggs, mushrooms, and strong coffee with hot mleko (milk). I wait for a table near the window overlooking verdant Tašmajdan Park, where dogs are playing among energetic kids, a nice …

Il pranzo della domenica, un’intramontabile tradizione italiana

Слика
Tradicionalni nedeljni ručak? Zvuči kao nepostojeći pojam u savremenom toku života kada svi članovi porodice, zaokupljeni obavezama, retko uspevaju da se okupe oko trpeze bar jednom nedeljno.  Italijani su poznati kao vreoma tradicionalan narod pa ovaj termin kao i praksa kod njih još uvek nisu izumrli i imajući u vidu bogato gastronomsko nasleđe, nedeljom se trude da se okupe, lepo i dobro pojedu i naravno razgovaraju o svim aktuelnostima...  A evo i kako u originalu izgleda taj famozni "pranzo della domenica" iliti: nedeljni ručak all'italiana



Una tavola imbandita, il calore di una casa accogliente e la famiglia riunita. Ecco cosa rappresenta per gli italiani il pranzo della domenica. E se negli ultimi anni le famiglie patriarcali  – terreno fertile del pranzo domenicale –  sono andate scemando, al loro posto sono nate le famiglie allargate. Dove il marito facoltoso prende il posto del vecchio pater familias, i nuovi coniugi squattrinati sostituiscono gli zii scapoli e …

VARIETIES OF ENGLISH

Слика
Most Brit and American teachers are all too aware of the differences between the deceivingly similar languages. They share a sarcastic disdain for each other’s pronunciation of ‘tomato’ and have long argued about the difference between ‘biscuit’ and ‘cookie’ or ‘chip’ and ‘crisp’. There is always a right or wrong answer- it just depends on who’s being asked. Pettiness aside, these inconsistencies pose a few questions when faced with a class full of ESL students, particularly when those students are schooled in British grammar and combine this with phrases learnt from American TV shows and movies.

So which ‘English’ should you teach? The best advice is to stick to what you know. You can teach British English, but allow students (especially beginners) to use American conjugations and pronunciation if they find it easier to do so. Try to resist the urge to make generalizations about whether something is right or wrong. Never underestimate your students’ ability to catch you out – many ta…

Do Brits really love to queue?

Слика
It’s been said that the British love a queue; that they’ll join a queue then ask what it’s for.
That’s patently untrue. When the queues started to spiral out of control at Heathrow airport howls of indignation began to drown out the sound of the jet engines.


Our resident Brit confirms that the Brits resent queuing as much as anyone. The only difference is they have utter respect for the convention and loathe anyone who tries to manipulate it. Perhaps it’s a vestige of the World Wars when rationing made queues a necessary part of life. Everyone is equally miserable in a queue and that suits the average Brit just fine.

As a result, they queue for the bus, the cinema, the supermarket checkout and the portable toilets at festivals. Brits will actively look for a queue even when none exists, asking, “Is this the end of the queue?”
So, if you want to make it in the UK, learn to respect the queue. Never jump the line or push in. Don’t ask the person behind you to mind your place while you go…
