The Linguists

I have an interest in language. I have some experience as an English teacher and I've read and learnt a little about language acquisition. I understand how important language is in shaping our cultures and the ways in which we view the world we live in.

I came across the documentary 'The Linguists' which I want to share.

If you find this interesting you may also enjoy the books 'Language Myths' and 'Spoken Here'.

Hey Barry!

It's me Dominika, you used to prepare me for the CAE exams in Brno, Czech Republic. I just wanted to let you know that I passed it (with the C mark, but whatever..) - about a year ago, so I wanted to thank you for being the best teacher I could ever ask for.

I'm writing you, because I just bought the movie "Pi" by Darren Aronofsky, which you recommended to me last year, so I'm just about to watch it.

I hope you're doing well.
