Traveling Beyond Tourism

Traveling Beyond Tourism

You are walking down the bustling town center with your overflowing Osprey 75 Liter strapped to your back like a turtle shell, last night’s laundry drying from every available strap.  Tourist tassels at their finest.  But hey, who can fault you for being efficient?  No matter; right now, fashion is the obvious concern.  Your day pack does the trick, goofy-footed to your chest so that your head floats in a mass of ErgoFIt, AirVenting, GoreTex-y goodness. Congratulations, you’re now a pregnant turtle.  With flair.

Of course being content with our lives is something to strive for but when there is a sense of laziness, and no motivation for self-growth within our lives, drastic change is needed! I have lived in Cape Town for twenty four years and have always loved living there but I got to a stage where I felt sick of it and wanted to go somewhere far away and teach English! I felt like I wasn’t moving forward there and taking this leap was what I needed. Coming to teach English in Taiwan, a place I didn’t know a lot about but I felt good about has definitely been the right decision. Travelling alone and getting lost has made me learn, whatever happens ‘don’t panic’. Stay as calm and centred as […]

What to Focus on in ESL Reading Exercises

What to Focus on in ESL Reading Exercises

It seems obvious to most ESL teachers to approach language education by teaching the meanings of individual English words. After all, words make up the most basic unit of meaning. If letters are the atoms of communication, words are the countless combinations of them that make up so many new and differentiated molecular combinations.

Writer Liane Nichols Writes About Speaking the Language (or not)

Non-verbal communication is a pretty standard idea. We communicate so much more not by saying it, but by showing it. It makes sense that when you travel the world, you start to recognize the true beauty of the non-verbal.
