Around 200 artificial languages have been created since the 17th century.
The first were invented by scholars for communication among philosophers. Later ones were developed by less scholarly men for trade, commerce and international communication.
They include 'Interlingua' (a mixture of Latin and Romance with Chinese-like sentence structure), 'Ido', '#Tutonish' (a simplified blend of Anglo-Saxon English and German) and the more commonly-known 'Esperanto', invented by Ludwig Zamenhof, a Jewish ophthalmologist from Poland, in 1887.

September 26 is European Day of Languages
The European Day of Languages is 26 September, as proclaimed by the Council of Europe on 6 December 2001, at the end of the European Year of Languages (2001), which had been jointly organized by the Council of Europe and the European Union. Its aim is to encourage language learning across Europe.
The general objectives of the European Day of #Languages are to: alert the public to the importance of language learning and diversify the range of languages learned in order to increase plurilingualism and intercultural understanding; promote the rich linguistic and cultural diversity of Europe; encourage lifelong language learning in and out of school.
In keeping with these rules, people, young and old, are encouraged to take up a language, or take special pride in their existing language skills. Also, those responsible for providing access to language learning are encouraged to make it easier for people to learn a range of languages, and to support policy initiatives to promote languages. There is also emphasis on learning a language other than English.

Words of the year
Every year several dictionary publishers and The American Dialect Society announces their picks for "Word of the Year". But this year’s choice bends our understanding of “word” in a way no previous word of the year has. #blacklivesmatter.

The main benefit of learning a language is getting a job abroad
When asked to pick the three main benefits of learning a language interviewees saw a strong economic case. Job prospects at home and broad were both key incentives.

It wasn’t all about job opportunities though, learning about another culture and the experience of communicating also scored highly. (The Guardian)

Cricket - quite possibly the greatest game known to Man 

Here is a little known fact to anyone outside this island and to a quite a lot of people inside it also. England is currently the best in the world at something. #Cricket. Yet as often happens with good news, there is a hitch. We are currently engaged in an international series of cricket matches with one of our keenest international rivals Pakistan; and we are being comprehensively beaten. This more than likely means that we can celebrate this little known fact for only a very little more time. South Africa will soon be taking that top spot. It was good while it lasted.

Anyway, many of our students who come to Cheney Court ask us about cricket as it is our traditional summer game and it is often shown on television. In fact the word has even entered our language as a way to describe an action done in not the right or correct way. "That is not cricket". To help all of you who are unfamiliar with this wonderful game and its rules, I hope the following will help.

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!
Now you know!!!

We had another fantastic review by one of our Cheney Court business students, Morten Ladehoff. 
As he has put so much effort into his report we thought the least we can do is put it on our blog. 
Read the review and don't forget to rate it for yourselves!

Copenhagen, 17 March 2014 Morten Ladehoff. NB : I have never written a recommendation, but here I felt that it should be shared with others, and had to devote time to it. My conclusion is that I give my best recommendation. I unconditionally give the place, the course, the food and the main purpose of my travel, education and the very professional and passionate teachers, my very best recommendation. Week 11 / 2014 I have been joining an intensive English course with emphasis on business English in order to meet the requirements many large enterprises request for its employees. I was in a fortunate position that I could choose which company I thought met the demands that was important to me. After a thorough search on the internet I chose Marcus Evans Linguarama. The company has many training centers world wide, but I was in no doubt, that it would be in the UK. Marcus Evans Linguarame have several placements in the UK but I was looking for a peaceful and beautiful place, so the choice was easy when I saw there was a training location approx. 10 km north / east of Bath. To become acclimated before the start of the course, I chose to fly to Bristol and be there for a few days to mentally be able to press the "reset" button. I could of course have chosen London where there is a private drive to the destination, but as stated, I wanted to be 100% tuned in for the main purpose of the travel. I contacted the firm and informed them about my desires and expectations, and that I thought the course "Individual Business English training Courses tailored to the specific needs of each Individual" was containing the pecifically I was looking for. I received a web-based test to clarify my level, so that lessons could be finally tailored to me. Already on my arrival Sunday afternoon at Cheney Court, I was overwhelmed by its beauty and idyllic location. I was very kindly received and immediately offered something to eat, even though that there would be served dinner a few hours later. I was shown around the central parts of the castle and again my expectations were surpassed by many miles, including that the original interior was maintained and very well maintained. Then last I was shown to my room, that was very spacious, tastefully furnished with a bed which in itself was a sleeping pill. The bathroom was large and also tiptop. In order not to make my letter too long and the repetition of the superlatives which I could continue to apply to everything and everyone throughout the whole course I better stop now. My conclusion is that I give my best recommendation. I unconditionally gives the place, the course, the food and the main purpose of my travel, education and the very professional and passionate teachers, my very best recommendation. Even the wi-fi access was fast and worked every day without interruption even once. On my many travels around the world I have never experienced anything like it.
