    Japan’s independent kids

    The Ando family are not unique. You see, Japanese families encourage their children to travel to and from school alone every single day. By Western standards, Japanese culture emphasises independence and self-reliance from an extraodinarily young age. In fact, one of Japan’s most loved and longest running TV shows, is called My First Errand, In which young children are given neighbourhood tasks, and secretly filmed as they set about them alone, sometimes even with a younger sibling in tow. My First Errand is appealing because all Japanese people had that experience of having their parents entrust them to do some simple job where they leave the house on their own…

    Context is key!

    Consider this classic question: A train leaves Ottawa, travelling west at 80 kilometers per hour. How long before it arrives in Toronto? Who cares? Adding meaningless context to questions whose answers can easily be Googled isn’t equivalent to motivating our students. That’s because they live in a connected world where they learn by interacting, collaborating and sharing with their networks of friends. As teachers, we try to keep up by using the latest gadgets, interactive whiteboards, and tablets but we keep asking the same kinds of contrived questions. Opportunities for true collaborative learning are getting lost in the tools. Education is not a spectator sport. Our students need to truly…

    A Little Princess FULL Audiobook

    Chapter 1 Sara Once on a dark winter’s day, when the yellow fog hung so thick and heavy in the streets of London that the lamps were lighted and the shop windows blazed with gas as they do at night, an odd-looking little girl sat in a cab with her father and was driven rather slowly through the big thoroughfares. She sat with her feet tucked under her, and leaned against her father, who held her in his arm, as she stared out of the window at the passing people with a queer old-fashioned thoughtfulness in her big eyes. She was such a little girl that one did not expect…

    English Travel Vocabulary: Planning a Trip

    Hi. Welcome again to www.engvid.com. My name is Adam. Today, I’m talking about a very interesting topic because, for example, in Toronto right now, it’s very, very cold. I’m thinking about travelling; I would love to go somewhere hot to get away from this winter. So, when I travel, I have, of course, to make travel arrangements. So here, we have a list of words, a list of things that you must think about before you go on a trip to a different country. We’re going to go over each of these. We’re going to start with “booking” and “reservation”. Now, many people think that this is more or less…
