Dark Tourism
Have you heard of 'dark tourism'? This is travel to places that are connected with bad or sinister things. Destinations like the concentration camp at Auschwitz, the site of the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl in present-day Ukraine, and Ground Zero in New York, are all popular places to visit.

Cruise ships

Is there more of the world to explore?
There are many famous explorers - people who have travelled to and discovered new parts of the world. Nowadays, it seems that every corner of our planet has been explored. Technology and modern transport means we can get to the most remote parts. So does this mean there is nowhere left to explore?

TED talks - the danger of a single story - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie



Our lives, our cultures, are composed of many overlapping stories. Novelist Chimamanda Adichie tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice — and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding.

LyricsTraining and Language Learning

LyricsTraining is a perfect way to learn and improve your skills with other languages.
LyricsTraining helps you to learn new vocabulary and expressions, and reinforce grammar concepts through continuous exercise of writing the missing words.
But above all, LyricsTraining helps you train your ear to dramatically improve your capacity to recognize sounds and words of a foreign language in a very short time, training your brain almost unconsciously, whether you know the meaning of all the words or not.
Recent studies have shown that simple exposure to the sounds of another language sets up in our brain the structures and connections necessary for learning it.
In addition to that, music is a fun way to learn and listening to different accents and pronunciations allows greater flexibility to test to your ability to recognize the different sound patterns of another language. This is very different from the typical listening exercises in language classes, where the pronunciation is too perfect, which is not entirely practical in a real environment.
LyricsTraining is also a fun way to learn the lyrics of your favorite songs.
