English as a Lingua Franca - What is ELF? English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) refers to the use of English as a medium of communication between peoples of different languages. We include as potential ELF users both those who speak English as an additional language and those who speak English (in any of its social, regional and national varieties) as their main language. So, if you are speaking English with another student who speaks English as an additional language, whether or not English is your main language, you are both using ELF (VOICE/FAQ 2009). ELF has been studied by linguists interested in how its grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation is different from other varieties of English (Seidlhofer 2005). TECHNOCLILEVO16: Primary school Hi everyone! I think that Flipped Classroom is a way to change teaching, but... it's difficult to use in Primary school, isn't it?

The 9 best alternatives to Photoshop Photoshop is so ubiquitous these days that, like Google, it's become a verb, so 'to Photoshop' has became shorthand for editing an image. This might give the impression that Adobe's got the market sewn up with its Creative Cloud packages – but that's not actually the case. In fact, the backlash against Adobe's move to the Creative Cloud has helped spur on the wide, and increasingly wider, range of alternatives to Photoshop. Whether you're looking elsewhere because you can't afford the subscription, or you want to support smaller development houses, or you just don't need all the millions of features that come with Photoshop CC, there are a number of options open to you.

Students favour online technology in 'flipped' classroom models Kimberley Santos, 15, uses online technology at home to help with her studies. Photo: Kate Geraghty School's in but dad ran over the iPad As school kicks off for another year, an increasing number of teachers are ditching traditional teaching models for "flipped" classroom programs, which rely on engagement with online learning content at home. First real alternative to Photoshop launched... and it's free! We're big fans at Creative Bloq of Affinity Designer, a low-price but high-end Mac alternative to Adobe Illustrator launched last June. And we're not alone: Apple, for example, awarded it the number 2 Mac app of 2014, and designers have generally given it the thumbs up.

What's more, Serif isn't aiming to just replicate Photoshop, or create a cut-down version. It's actively aiming to steal Adobe's market by creating a product that they claim is better than Photoshop in a number of ways. Faster codebase
