Around 400 million people speak English. Geographically, English is the most widespread language on earth, and it is second only to Chinese in the number of people who speak it. Only a few million people spoke English in Shakespeare’s time. Today, English is represented in every continent and in the three main oceans — the Atlantic, the Indian and the Pacific. English is probably the most insatiable borrower. Scientists say that the average vocabulary of a native speaker is 5,000 words. William Shakespeare, however, used 30,000 words!
People have long been interested in having one language that could be spoken throughout the world. Such a language would help to increase cultural and economic ties and simplify communication between people. Through the years, at least 600 universal languages have been proposed, including Esperanto. About 10 million people have learned Esperanto since its creation in 1887, but English, according to specialists, has better chances to become a global language.

What kind of students are you?

fireWould you like to know your strong and weak points in the classroom?
Find your sign of the zodiac below and read the text.

Aries: March 21—April 20
Sagittarius: November 22 — December 21
Leo: July 22 — August 22
Fire signs usually make optimistic students. However, you are often impatient and want to make quick progress. It’s difficult for you to concentrate on one thing. You have lots of energy but sometimes you have your head in the clouds and don’t know or care what is going on around you. To make good progress you should try to concentrate on what you are doing today and not on what you want to do tomorrow.

How to be happier

How to be happier
1. Love yourself. Almost no one is satisfied with the way he or she looks. Most of us are not like the models we see on TV or in magazines. Remember that you are unique.
2. Be yourself. You cannot be cool all the time. Don’t sacrifice yourself to be with someone who doesn’t respect you, or care about you (you don’t deserve it!)
3. Believe in yourself — if you don’t, how can you expect others to?
4. Always set goals that you can reach. If you have done enough, then award yourself for it. Smile and say: “I did great today”. Say it three times and mean it.
5. Learn the power of colour. Blue is calming, red gives you energy, orange makes you more optimistic, turquoise makes you less shy and more confident in yourself.

English Language of Communication

English Language of Communication

(What experts think about it)
(By G. Mikes)
When I arrived in England I thought I knew English. After I’d been here an hour I realised that I did not understand one word. In the first week I picked up a tolerable working knowledge of the language and the next seven years convinced me gradually but thoroughly that I would never know it really well, let alone perfectly. This is sad. My only consolation being that nobody speaks English perfectly.
Remember that those five hundred words an average Englishman uses are far from being the whole vocabulary of the language. You may learn another five hundred and another five thousand and yet another fifty thousand and still you may come across a further fifty thousand you have never heard of before, and nobody else either.
