Melissa Marshall's curator insight, April 9, 10:23 PM

This is a fantastic resource for seeing how words have changed according to geography. Type a word into the box and see it translated directly on to a map in more than 30 languages. Great for teaching kids about regions of language, or asking how they think a certain country came to use a certain word.

English language can be a barrier for international students

English language can be a barrier for international students | Language(s) | Scoop.it
Living in a country far from home, where everyone speaks a language you didn’t grow up with, can be a challenge. For some international students, the English language can be a barrier that makes them feel lonely and excluded.

Paz Barceló's comment, August 21, 2013 8:58 AM
Siendo de una comunidad bilingüe, me parece interesante. Y apoya otros estudios que confirman como las personas que combinan constantemente al menos dos lenguas pueden tener una mejor reserva cognitiva. Todavía hay quienes piensan que enseñar dos lenguas a alumnos es perjudicial para que dominen bien una, lo cual no tiene mucho fundamento.

Do Small Businesses Need to be Multilingual?

Do Small Businesses Need to be Multilingual? | Language(s) | Scoop.it
BilingualStudyGuides's insight:

Language services are a $20 billion industry, according to Hans Fenstermacher, CEO of The Globalization and Localization Association (GALA). These services, which he says are offered largely to small and mid-sized companies, support approximately $1.5 trillion in exports. This causes some to speculate that improving foreign language skills among American businesses could boost exports and narrow the trade gap.
