This is how you overcome a language barrier

Learning a language can be a tricky process, but it's important to remember that it is a process.Having learned 20 languages so far, Canadian polyglot and LingQ founder Steve Kaufmann's advice is to not focus on the grammar. Constantly thinking about the rules while attempting to speak only makes it harder. Investing time (often several months) into listening, reading, and practicing words before trying to speak a language will help you feel more comfortable with it. You will make mistakes, but ...

Here’s a new way to do study abroad during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond

With the U.S. and much of the world engulfed in the COVID-19 pandemic, travel restrictions and health risks have threatened to make study abroad difficult, if not impossible.

The choice is ours. This throws up a number of questions for individuals, companies, and Governments on how to prep...

I did my engineering from 1998 to 2012. It used to be very difficult to get the latest and greatest in the electronics world from the local market. My go-to way to get something interesting was to apply for freebies from companies in the USA, whether it was PICs from Microchip or the latest Linux CDs. I would apply and then wait. It would take time but it would arrive at home safely. I used to get frustrated by this waiting time. Sometime it would take up-to three months. Twenty years later ship...

In Sweden you can roam anywhere you like, without the landowner's permission

The concept of access regardless of land ownership is called 'Allemansrätt' - 'everyman's right'. The custom dates from mediaeval times, but was only passed as law in parliament in 1974, and enshrined in the Swedish constitution in 1994. Authorities can even force landowners to remove any fence in place which has the sole purpose of obstructing public access to a recreation area.There are sensible exceptions. You cannot enter private gardens or cultivated land, nor can you camp within 70 metres ...
