Taiwan Breakfast Guide

If you know me then you will know that food is a big deal to me, hailing from a family of chefs I have always been raised around different kinds of foods and I am a far cry from a fussy eater. Breakfast is also a big deal to me, it’s the fuel that starts this engine in the morning and I don’t take that lightly. When I came to teach English in Taiwan I was excited to see what people ate for breakfast here. Living in a western breakfast bubble of toast, cereal and the full English breakfast I was ready to have my bubble popped and eyes opened to the delectable delights that the mysterious Taiwan had to offer.

The Importance of Mastering American Slang

The Importance of Mastering American Slang

What’s up?! Well, a lot of things. Stars. Ceilings. Trees. But you know as well as I that I’m asking about your life. What is happening and how you are handling it? That’s the sly, simple, spacious impact of slang in our culture today. We hardly recognize when we slip into such commonly used colloquialisms. Which is precisely why it’s so important for us to have a good mastery of American slang, especially if we’re attempting to teach non-English speakers the nuances of our confounding language. Thankfully, good people have done the hard yards of compiling the words you need to know. I’m just here to tell you why you need to know them. For Building Relationships Slang, by its nature, is informal. You wouldn’t typically use it on your scholarly essays and tests because those are assessing your grasp of “proper” or formal English. You may as well take your tea and crumpets along. But once you leave Downton Abbey and step out onto the streets, slang is not only commonplace, but highly relatable.
