It’s now the primary language spoken by 136 million people in the planet, while an extra 190 million speak it as their second language. The language is predominantly spoken in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Quebec, New Brunswick and Ontario in Canada, and in some parts of the United States. It’s also the second language of a number of countries in Africa. Here are some great suggestions for how to learn French without leaving home.

Expose Yourself To French Movies And TV Programs The local cable TV operator in your city or town will most likely offer TV stations and French-language... Read More

Learning German Can Be Affordable Learning to speak, or write in German can be quite affordable, and won’t require that you spend a large amount on hiring personal tutors or classes. In learning German, it’s important that you learn the vocabulary first, and you can find a number of German-English vocabulary books and dictionaries in book stores today. While learning the language can’t be done overnight, there are a lot of offline and online resources to help you achieve this. Chose The Right German Language CourseGetting the right German language course is critical in fully learning the language.... Read More

I love fascinating discoveries, just as I love surprises. I was both fascinated and surprised to learn that the American constitution recognises three sovereign entities: the federal government, the individual states and – this is the surprise – the Indian tribes. Yes, the Indian nations are effectively that – nations.

Clearly these sovereignties are not equal. The Civil War showed that federal authority trumped that of states’ rights. The position with the Indians – I refuse to use the term ‘native American’ – seems to be more ambiguous. Their legal status rests on the various treaties... Read More

When I first visited Floriita, a watering hole at the beginning of old Havana, one corner of the bar was chained off in tribute to an American writer. It was allegedly the spot where Ernest Hemingway quaffed his daily daiquiri when he was in town. Whether he sat on that lonely stool or not, I thought it a restrained and tasteful gesture. The next time I went the chain and the stool were gone. In its place was grotesque larger than life figure of Hemingway propping up the bar!

It’s now over fifty years since the real larger than life figure took his own life. I have mixed feelings about... Read More

Now picture the scene. By the side of the road a group of male hitchhiker are trying to catch a ride. A nineteen-year-old girl stops to pick them up. The guys refuse to get in. They don’t trust her, they say; they fear they are going to be raped!

You think this is a spoof? Well, I can assure you, it's not. The country in question is Zimbabwe, where three women currently stand accused of picking up male hitchhikers with the intent of harvesting their sperm. The victims apparently were drugged or subdued at knife or gun point before the women forced themselves upon them. In one case a... Read More

Sometimes the distances between what people know of you . . . and what they think of you . . . and what you know of yourself . . . and what you think of yourself . . . and what is true of all of this knowledge and all of these thoughts when sifted out seems as vast as the entire universe. I wonder if God didn't just create all the stars and solar systems for a practice run, knowing that the humans-to-come would be much more difficult to put into motion and save from colliding.

We don't orbit well.

We want to be the center of our own universe; we choose carefully who gets into... Read More

What do the gay people in your church look like? Do you spot them by their flamboyant clothing . . . their mannerisms . . . their declarations?

When a brother or sister in your church came to you to ask you for your help and support in their personal struggle against homosexuality . . . what did you do to walk with them? How did you respond the last time this happened to you?

“Oh . . . we don’t have that problem in our church,” you say?

If you are a typical church, you do.

Statistics show that one out of every five church members has a family member or close friend... Read More
