Learning a new language can be a challenge. It discourages people when they spend so much time practicing vocabulary to not be able to string together a simple sentence. For people that travel to other countries often, it’s useful to know a little of the language so communication is easier and there is less left up to interpretation. Eager to find the new best way to help learn a language, people will spend hours on the internet hoping there is some secret to learning languages no one is releasing. The true secret is repetition and to go for it. Speak the language even when you only know a few words; speaking in the language everyday will help reinforce it and make the words stick in your brain.

 

Apps are a terrific way to pick up a language and many use them as on-the-go tools for learning languages. One of the most popular language apps at the moment is Drops. This app has more than 31 free languages to choose from and teaches by having the user engage in many word games. It makes learning the language fun and helps the brain remember. The best part about this app, and what makes it stand out from the others, is the content is completely free. There is no upgrading fee after using the app for two minutes.

 

The goal is make vocabulary learning fun and teach it in a way that is useful for creating sentences and phrases. This app is a great tool for anyone looking to further their language skills.

Culinary Artistry

Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.

The Redneck Games

One of Georgia’s greatest cultural gifts might be coming to an end. The Redneck Games, which began in 1996, have seen a dip in attendance in recent years. A lack of sponsors means many of us might never know the joys of “bug zapping by spitball” unless an influx of travelers can help revive the event.
