Catalan Catalan dictionary from the Enciclopèdia Catalana. Cardboard Box Tools The child in the photo above just received the most amazing toy! It might have been a giant stuffed giraffe, or a truck, or a new game. However, the cardboard box is even more exciting. The child will eventually outgrow the giraffe or the truck because those toys can be only one thing -- but the box is timeless. The box can be a racecar, a submarine, a suit of armor, a castle, or a cave.
it's NOT about what the teacher does with technology Bruce Springsteen: "When we kiss…" Not just going through the motions! You could probably say I've had four different though overlapping careers — in language teaching, language teacher training, technology and ELT management. The first of those I retired from (after 35+ years) a few months ago, though the number of contact hours I was doing was limited; teacher training I'm retiring from at the end of this month; management I got fired from (to the relief of all involved!)

After playing around with Android L on my Nexus 5, I’ve discovered that the rabbit hole is much deeper than this! There’s plenty of very small, subtle changes in Android L Developer Preview that might not be big on their own, but they are still very welcome and in the long run could make a pretty big difference when it comes to improving our mobile experience. While many of these changes can be achieved already through 3rd party apps or are found in OEM skins, it’s still a nice change for stock Android. Android predicts how long it’ll take to charge your battery

A Map of Lexical Distances Between Europe's Languages A Finn and a Spaniard walk into a bar. How do they strike up a conversation? It would be exceptional for either to speak each other's language. And it would be rare for both to be fluent enough in French, German, Esperanto or Russian – all languages which once had the ambition to become Europe's lingua franca. No, that Finn and that Spaniard will talk to each other and order drinks in English, the true second language of the continent.
Vocational training in Germany – how does it work? A dual vocational degree (ausbildungsintegriertes duales Studium) is a special form of degree programme. It integrates studies at a higher education institution such as a university or Berufsakademie and on-the-job training at a company. This means that you will obtain both a degree and a recognised professional qualification. This kind of integrated dual degree course is particularly common in the areas of business and engineering (e.g. business studies, mechanical engineering or IT). In contrast to regular university degree programmes, dual vocational degrees do not primarily focus on academic studies. In addition to the theory that is taught at a higher education institution or Berufsakademie, students also undergo on-the-job training at a company.
