Further thoughts on how technology is changing language
It might feel as though certain familiar sayings have existed since the dawn of time. But proverbs have to be invented – and here are some recent candidates

What do a pride of lions, a litter of puppies and a den of thieves have in common? No, they’re not characters in a new Disney cartoon, but "terms of venery", and they may be one of the English language’s oddest traditions.

With original illustrations by "Soundimals" creator James Chapman.
Illustrations by James Chapman. Have you ever wondered why fish swim in schools, stairs are measured in flights or worms come in cans? As with so many things in life, the French are to blame. Let me back up a little. If languages were carpets, English would be a vast, cobbled-together patchwork.

Hmm, something's fishy here. Native English speakers are apparently not very good at identifying smells. Is our modern, sterilized environment to blame – or our language?
Researchers have found a tribe in the Malay peninsula rainforest who are markedly better than westerners at identifying aromas

The benefits of active practice over passive learning – sound advice for any skill you wish to master.
We all have goals that we want to achieve in our lives. These goals may include learning a new language, eating healthier and losing weight, becoming a better parent, saving more money, and so on. But there's a point when you need to stop planning these goals and start working towards them.

For better or worse, technology is changing our behavior. Thankfully, these funny neologisms can help us better describe the world of "onlineness".
When languages evolve, it's important that scholars and dictionaries keep up. The internet has spawned a new crop of words for stuff, and while you may not like all of them, some of them are really clever combos that seem like they might actually be useful!

"If you don't speak a language at all, you get a very whitewashed experience of that country. That one decision to learn Spanish has shaped my entire career; it has shaped what I've done with my life."
The Wahaca restaurant co-founder first travelled to Mexico after finishing school. Learning the Spanish language not only brought her closer to the culture and people, it was the beginning of a love affair with the country's world famous cuisine. The chef explains how she learned the language dish by dish

The spanish language rolls off my tongue so nice.  I have to spend more time studying it to know without notes...

Happy April Fools' Day! 
Do you know what children in France and in Italy normally do today? They draw a paper fish, called an “April Fish”, and tape it to the back of their schoolmates. Do you want to try it yourself? Go to: https://babbel.app.box.com/aprilfoolsA4, download the Babbel fish and "fool” your friends!

Do you love languages too much to choose just one for day-to-day life? Multilingual towns get where you're coming from:
Moving to a multilingual area at first feels like playing a game where everyone knows the rules, apart from you. As a language student however I quickly realised it was the perfect place for my year abroad
