15 Wonderful Robin Williams Quotes On Life

The other night while I was watching Emmy Awards, there was a tribute to Robbie Williams, whom I think one of the greatest movie actors of all times. Then I realized that I did not posted on blog about him at all. He was one of my childhood heroes and it is so sad that he died in that way.

I hope he is in a better place now. And here are some Robbin Williams quotes on life compiled by

Spanish-English False Friend Words #1

Since a human being is able to articulate a limited number of sounds, it is inevitable that languages have many similar sounding words in their vocabulary. However, that does not mean that they share some similarities in terms of meaning.

For example, Turkish word “mama” means “baby food” but it has a complete different meaning in English!

Here, I found some Spanish-English words that are similar in articulation but different in meaning. I hope my Spanish friends (or Spanish-learners) like it! 🙂

3 Ways to Speak English

When I first came across this video, I thought this is all about dialects and different usages of English; however, it turned out to be something totally different and something political and cultural.

I really liked the way she expresses herself and the remarks she made such as “This is not a promotion of ignorance, this is a linguistic celebration.” at the end of the video.

I really wonder what do you think about it. 🙂 Please write your comments after watching. 🙂
