Wordplay, wortspiele, dajare, jeu do mots and more! Four cultural Father’s Day Dad jokes that will make you want to cringe, cry or crack up…

Father’s Day was this weekend. The day when Dad can put his feet up, blast music from his stereo and crack as many head-in-your-hands types of jokes as possible… and not have anyone complain about it. Sounding familiar?

•    Just like learning any new skill….

it goes without saying that the very best way for us to dramatically improve our speaking and writing skills in the languages we learn is to simply PRACTICE, PRACTICE and PRACTICE.

Language learning: is it unfortunately becoming increasingly irrelevant?

Let me ask you a question: what’s the point in spending 100s of hours mastering the vocabulary, grammar, idiomatic expressions (and much more) learning a foreign language, when nowadays machine translation (such as Google Translate) can translate it instantly for you?
