Google URL Shortener

Since then, many popular URL shortening services have emerged and the ways people find content on the Internet have also changed dramatically, from primarily desktop webpages to apps, mobile devices, home assistants, and more. To refocus our efforts, we're turning down support for over the coming weeks and replacing it with Firebase Dynamic Links (FDL). FDLs are smart URLs that allow you to send existing and potential users to any location within an iOS, Android or web app. We're excited to grow and improve the product going forward.

For consumers Starting April 13, 2018, anonymous users and users who have never created short links before today will not be able to create new short links via the console. After March 30, 2019, all links will continue to redirect to the intended destination. MetaMetrics Inc. Free English course and lessons for beginner and intermediate learners.

A flash fiction text is only 150 words short/long.

Flash Fiction meets Banksy

Some say it is 75 words long and others say 1500, but we will write 150 words. In this text you remove all extra words like adjectives, adverbs, names, personifications and metaphors. That means that you as a writer leaves the reader to read outside the text and to create his or her own images of the characters and setting in the text. We will use Banksy´s pictures to create our flash fictions to leave an image in our head and to give the reader another one. Lär dig rita!

TED talks for autonomous listening: ten activities

I’m co-moderating the session on teaching listening, and this week, under the guidance of Lizzie Pinard, we’ve started out with the topic of encouraging learner autonomy. One great thing about online sessions like this one is that there are a lot of participants who share a wealth of tips about the activities and resources they use. From what I’ve read in our discussion threads, it seems that a lot of teachers encourage their learners to watch TED talks out of class, and the participants have suggested a variety of ideas for activities based on the talks. What also often happens, however, is that the teacher recommends this resource but the learners don’t start using it – and the teacher kind of knows that they don’t, but they don’t even ask because that would be admitting failure (oh haven’t I been there a lot of times?)

So, if we get back to TED talks, this means that Below I outline ten ideas for tasks based on TED talks. English listening exercises and tests with selected talks. English Levels (Based on the CEFR)

These rules may vary across languages and regions; this page is specifically concerned with the rules governing sentence construction or structure in standard English.

What Is a Sentence? A sentence is a subject and a predicate working together to convey meaning. That is to say, every sentence contains something (a person, place, thing, or idea) and that thing must act in some way (even if the action is merely existing).
