When Rosetta Stone came out in 1992, I returned from Paris to the United States, where I had lived as an expatriate for the past four years and worked as a photojournalist for the City of Lights. Back in Paris, I introduced Darren to my best friend Marion, the editor of Paris Match – my Mindy, of course – with whom I spent hours at Père Tranquille and Café Flore, chatting about our different loves, talking about our early professional struggles and learning to grow up. He convinced me of the idea of a series about a young woman moving to Paris, except that this version would be set in the present, not the late 1980s, and she wouldn’t be a photojournalist with some expensive, explosive ensembles, but, well, he wasn’t sure. There have been several attempts over the years to turn Shutterbabe into a movie or TV series, but I was always told that a female lead with lots of explosives and multiple takes would be too expensive. I’m not responsible for the Rosetta Stone line in Emily in Paris.” “Although I worked on the pilot episode, that line belongs to Darren Starr. One night Candice Bushnell, who wrote the original Sex and the City column on which Darren’s series is based, showed up at Lila’s Closeries withher’ friend, and the two danced Can-Can in the middle of the restaurant. Darren Star bought the rights to Dreamworks, and the executives sent us on a week-long research trip to Paris, which I ended up writing about in O, The Oprah Magazine. So on Sunday nights I’ll lie on the couch in vomit, eat croissant after croissant until I feel pregnant, watch the show, and celebrate all the mistakes and misunderstandings that got me here. It served me decades later in the writer’s room of “Emily in Paris,” a series that adds humor to the “Fish Out of Water” trope of Paris. And now there’s “Emily in Paris,” a Netflix series and a somewhat controversial Golden Globe nominee whose comedic missteps stem from some of my own. I told her about my friend Alex, who worked as a chef at the famous Parisian restaurant Taillevent, and how he fed our group of expats every Sunday, a ritual that New York Times writer John Burnham Schwartz remembered fondly. We ate with my Parisian friends, many of whom told him funny stories about all the mistakes I had made, both in life and in French. But surely working in fashion or luxury would keep “it” in Paris and give “it” a recurring cast of characters as friends and colleagues. One example: during my first month in Paris, I was invited to dinner with my fellow photojournalists.
The bottom line is that the travel industry is not yet ready for more solo travelers, especially young women traveling alone. Second, more resources for women are needed, including innovative accommodations that are age-appropriate and welcoming to women traveling alone. While the typical woman travels, the average woman traveling alone changes. “The average woman traveling alone changes. But when we talk about hostels and solo travel, the first thing that comes to mind is teenage girls traveling around Europe as backpackers. The travel industry has many ways to adapt to the ever-changing landscape of solo travelers. This series is a series of first-hand anecdotes from an experienced solo traveler who has traveled to 50 countries over the past decade. First, the main characters need to understand who the average solo traveler is. However, the solo travel industry is still geared toward a younger audience. If anyone thinks a solo traveler should be in their 20s, this post should prove that’s not the case at all. Hostels are one of the few places that are really made for solo travelers because of the price and ease of meeting other people. You could stay in a hotel, but their price structure does not favor solo travelers because most rooms are paid for by two adults. This section is designed to give you some tips if you want to travel alone but feel “too old” to do so. There is a preconceived notion that solo travel has to go a certain way. I was too worried that my glass was almost empty to miss “his” quiet expressions. Hera helps connect women traveling the world. You can find women who are in the same place at the same time, so it’s easy to find someone to hang out with.
Learning Arabic slang will not only help you feel more comfortable in everyday situations, but it will also be crucial to truly understand the culture and traditions of the language you speak. Whether you are learning Arabic for professional reasons or to better understand the locals on your next trip to Amman it time to incorporate jargon into your learning process. While it’s important to become familiar with formal Arabic words, slang is crucial when it comes to real conversation. Daniela Cantillo is a language enthusiast who speaks Spanish, English, French, Portuguese and Arabic. As you saw in the video above, our Arabic conversation series will help you navigate the different aspects of Arabic to strengthen your skills and expand your knowledge. When I first started learning Arabic, I focused only on formal phrases and everyday vocabulary because I thought it would help me survive traveling in Arabic-speaking countries. This short video gives an overview of the two most common Arabic slang words. Most students rush through the formal aspects of the language and pay little or no attention to Arabic slang. If you have ever traveled to an Arabic-speaking country, you have probably heard the word “qalas” many times. I quickly learned that, just like in English, most people use tons of slang in their daily lives. One of my favorite ways to practice listening skills is to watch TV shows and write down new slang words. Aqid is often used in Arabic to emphasize a positive response. Are you tired of listening to people at the table talking about sports or politics? The meaning of “halas!” in English is equivalent to “stop!” or “stop!” I first heard the word during my memorable summer in Morocco. Daniela loves travel, food, and warm weather. She is currently pursuing a master’s degree in international relations with a major in media studies at Nova Escola.

Sarah Davila is an expert in language learning and study. She has worked in a variety of educational settings as a teacher, documentarian, researcher, and tutor. The results are slightly above the level of my current students in the three skills, indicating that this class will give you a lot of insight into your students’ performance and progress. It’s also a great resource for creating custom rubrics in the classroom to help measure learning that can be observed directly. With a little planning, it’s easy to use GSE to track student progress and better understand where their skills are falling short long before they start testing. Observing students’ work in Game 2 will give you more insight into how students have learned and mastered the use of superlative adjectives. In part nine of this series, Sarah discusses her top ten uses of the GSE study kit and looks at how teachers can use the kit to assess their work. However, if you always wait for the results of your students’ professional evaluations, you may be missing out on an opportunity to support your students’ learning and help them develop the skills they need to pass the exam. With the GSE Teaching Kit, you can filter the GSE area you are working in and focus your skills on comparisons. The GSE teacher kit already contains valuable information that you can use to gain insight into student performance. The GSE Teaching Kit is a great tool that offers many options for creating assessment activities. Once you know what skills you want to observe, create a rubric to track observations and provide consistency when observing the performance of multiple students. Finally, observation data can show that comparisons and the use of comparisons need to be reused and incorporated more thoughtfully into future lessons so that your students have a solid skill set long before they take the test. It is especially helpful to watch students struggle with the use of equations, as this can help introduce more individualized content to address perceived gaps. You can observe students’ progress in Game 1 to check their comprehension or assess their prior knowledge.
As a teacher-coach and freelance writer, Sarah Hilliard specializes in teaching STEAM in the language classroom. This is especially true for STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, art and design, and mathematics). Depending on the skill level, students may also learn language skills used in various STEAM professions. Practical tips will be given on how to successfully teach a STEAM lesson using a Level 4 coded English class. Learning objectives are a good starting point for developing STEAM connections. For example, if you are teaching about animals and their habitats, you can make many STEAM connections. There are many benefits to making connections between STEAM topics and the content areas of your curriculum. These language skills include listening and negotiating, reading and interpreting text or data, writing hypotheses, constructing labels, writing down data, sharing explanations, communicating ideas and solutions, and publishing results. Making connections to reality is a natural part of learning, and teaching languages should also be part of learning. But in order for students to develop STEM skills, we must integrate these subjects with the arts, and vice versa. Students can then present their Habitat creation to the rest of the class, giving them a chance to practice presenting and speaking in English. If you want to learn more about how to integrate STEAM into the classroom, Sarah will be hosting a webinar on STEAM on Wednesday, April 14. STEAM topics should enable cross-classroom learning and always go hand in hand. In this post, she explains why an integrated approach makes sense and how you can integrate STEAM into your daily lessons.

Although much of the rural landscape of the eastern region is dotted with oil refineries and miles of roads connecting urban centers and small towns, visitors can enjoy protected natural treasures in seven national parks: Mariusa, El Guacharo Laguna de la Restinga, Cerro El Copey Jovito-Vilba, Paria Peninsula, Mochima and Turuepano. Part of the swamp forests of the Orinoco Delta, this park is home to the delta plains and the large number of manatees that are still common in this area. La Restinga is a shallow lagoon isolated from the Caribbean Sea by sand bars on Margarita Island, making this body of water a geographic curiosity as unusual mangrove vegetation has formed as far as the eye can see. Further east, the landscape becomes lush with jungle and numerous arms of water that join the Orinoco, Venezuela’s largest river. Mariusa offers perhaps the most unique landscape in the region, as it includes the geographic point where the Orinoco River flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Because of these natural features, Oriente is sure to be a beacon for vacationers, nature lovers, environmentalists and anyone else who wants to have fun among Mother Earth’s treasures. In Venezuelan street language, “Oriente” is always synonymous with delicious seafood, tasty musical beats and beach vacations in one of the five states that make up the “Oriente region,” literally translated. This eco-friendly region is known for its stunning coastline, vacation and fishing resorts, and all of Margarita Island, one of Venezuela’s most famous tourist attractions. The area includes the Cordillera Oriental, an extension of the country’s coastal mountains to the north, and a region surrounded by uplands to the south. Mangroves are also a natural feature of Turuepano, located in the eastern part of the state of Sucre. In addition to the wide variety of flora and fauna, diving and sailing are some of the most popular activities practiced at the many anchorages along the coast. I am a culture and language enthusiast and a keen foodie. I am very happy to share with all of you my language and culture and, why not, some recipes for our traditional dishes. Eastern Region: Anzoategui, Monagas, Sucre, Nueva Esparta and the Amacuro Delta.
