What The World's Families Eat in a Week Updated: May 23, 2016 10:44 AM EDT | Originally published: September 20, 2013 4:44 PM EDT American photographer Peter Menzel and writer Faith D’Aluisio have traveled the world documenting that most basic of human behaviors—what we eat. Their project, “Hungry Planet,” depicts everything that an average family consumes in a given week—and what it costs. The pair released their book “Hungry Planet: What the World Eats” in 2005, showcasing meals in 24 countries. More from TIME The Ayme family of Tingo, Ecuador, was pictured with a haul of vegetables. In 2013 and 2014, their “Hungry Planet” portraits were exhibited by the Nobel Peace Center to give viewers a peek into kitchens from Norway to Kuwait and China to Mexico, and to raise awareness about how environments and cultures influence the cost and calories of the world’s dinners.

English Vocabulary: Countries, Nationalities, and Languages One big vocabulary and pronunciation problem in English is knowing how to pronounce the English names of countries, nationalities, and languages. In today’s lesson, I’ve organized the words into categories that can help you remember them better. You can also practice your pronunciation of the country and nationality words. Notice that some of these words end in -IAN, but the “I” is silent. * There are two ways to pronounce the syllable: GWAY (like “way”) and GWAI (like “eye”). **Although “American” is the most common way to refer to someone from the U.S., I recognize that this can be considered offensive to citizens of other countries in North America, Central America, and South America. Do you want to learn grammar AND practice your English listening?
