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!)
6 small changes in Android L that make a big difference Most of the posts floating around the web about Android L release have focused on revamped notifications, the new recent menu changes, the death of Dalvik, the new material design, Android for Work and other hard hitters that were showcased during the Google I/O 2014 keynote.

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.
