Words, words, words …..

Words are so fascinating.  Where they come from, their different meanings, their different uses … If you’re teaching a language and you don’t find words to be really fun, then I feel sorry for you.  You definitely need this post ; )

For curiosity’s sake, I invite you to discover fifty words English acquired from India, by clicking here.

Then, for ourselves, those of us who are living abread, and for our students, who are learning words, here’s an excellent article from ‘the polyglot dream’ : click here.

How nice to know that forgetting things isn’t proof that I’m a freak!  Many thanks to the ‘Everyday language learner’ blog, which you can visit here, for indicating the second article.
