Josep Espasa does a nice job curating “English Learning 2.0”. Even though the focus is English learning, he actually covers a lot of other edtechie ground.

Pablo Neruda is one of my preferred poets. No poet has more passionately and thoroughly spoken for his people than Neruda. “Canto General,” his 15-part book comprising over 200 poems tracing the history of Latin America practically unified a country.

“Occupy” has been named the 2011 Word of the Year.

The word was voted on by the American Dialect Society, which was founded back in 1889 and is dedicated to the study of the English language in North America, and of other languages, dialects of other languages, influencing it or influenced by it.

The society is made up of linguists, lexicographers, etymologists, historians, grammarians, academics, editors, writers and independent scholars in the fields of English, foreign languages or other disciplines.

    How did “humblebrag” make the list? I'm totally on board with “Occupy.” This annual gathering of the ADS seems quite fun!

    The same way FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) did. Nevertheless, you're right, they had a good bit of fun at this meeting. That's half of the battle.

Is Proper English Dying? And Should Us Care? — English is ubiquitous. It has an estimated 1.5 billion speakers. In China alone, 400 million people are currently actively learning English, or nearly a third of the population. So, in a few years, China will have more English-speakers than America. But learning English isn’t the same as knowing English, and knowing English isn’t the same as being able to speak good, or even intelligible English… A superb article from the WSJ on the evolution of of the English language

Today’s ‘technological dialect’ is showing up in student’s work and is changing the way the “now generation” uses the english language. It’s faster, easier and more efficient. Here’s a cool debate about this that aired on India’s NDTV

Should Students Learn India’s Other Languages? Indian Vice President Mohammad Hamid Ansari suggested that a key to national integration could be learning an Indian language other than Hindi. Mr. Ansari said it rare to find students in Hindi-speaking states who are learning “a south Indian or another non-Hindi language.” He added that limiting the use of English to mediate between languages could also help improve cultural ties between various parts of India. While it is hard to disagree with Mr. Ansari, his statement also raises questions on how useful it actually is to learn multiple Indian languages…
