Buddhism Buddhism (pronunciation: /ˈbʊdɪzəm/ or /ˈbuːdɪzəm/) is a religion and dharma that encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and spiritual practices largely based on teachings attributed to the Buddha. Buddhism originated in India sometime between the 6th and 4th centuries BCE, from where it spread through much of Asia, whereafter it declined in India during the middle ages. Two major extant branches of Buddhism are generally recognized by scholars: Theravada (Pali: "The School of the Elders") and Mahayana (Sanskrit: "The Great Vehicle"). Buddhism is the world's fourth-largest religion, with over 500 million followers or 7% of the global population, known as Buddhists.[web 1] Mahayana, which includes the traditions of Pure Land, Zen, Nichiren Buddhism, Shingon and Tiantai (Tendai), is found throughout East Asia.
Smigin Is a Foreign Language Tool That Doesn’t Make You Sound Like A Tourist If you’ve ever tried to learn a foreign language, you probably know that most existing methods focus on aspects of the language that aren’t very helpful in everyday life. For example, newcomers to a language are often first taught the names of animals or colors, words that aren’t normally applicable to the common traveler. Smigin aims to fix this problem with its app that allows travelers to build and hear common phrases spoken by a native speaker.

Clam FAQ!! - The Reef Tank Phyto and Clams: In the first post of this thread it was suggested that Phyto be fed to Maxima clams,.. But it is a long held hobby myth that any clam under 3" should be fed Phyto, by means of the boal feeding method, or by puting a container over the clam and injecting phyto into the container,.. or more simply feeding it directly to the tank. There are certainly plenty of phyto supplements out there,.. and it is proven that clams do eat phyto, but do they need it?

The more you practice the subject, the closer you get to mastering the Spanish language. But first we need to know what the role of Articles is in the structure of the grammar in Spanish. Task-Based Language Teaching › Dave & Jane Willis answer TBLT questions from Japan Something a little different this week. Below is an article written by Dave and Jane Willis, which they were kind enough to submit to a special TBLT issue of JALT’s The Language Teacher journal which I guest edited last year. In it, they answer some questions sent in by Japan-based English teachers in a very straightforward and persuasive way, which in my opinion makes this an important piece to keep in circulation. It should be of interest to teachers outside of Japan as well. Of course, Dave and Jane require very little in the way of an introduction to task-based teachers, having authored some of the best books on the approach. I highly recommend anyone looking for more resources on TBLT to visit their website.
