Second Languages Around The World

Most of the times, the choice of the second language is not up to you. When I was in primary school, we “had to” learn English as the second language because we/ or our parents did not have a chance to decide on that. In Turkey example, English is considered as the global language and it should be in the curriculum.

When I was in college, I studied in Ghent, a Flemish city Belgium. Unlike Turkey, the second language is French there because of the bilingual nature of the country.

Anyway. For this or that reason, every country has a second language around the world. Let’s see it with a funny and informative infographic. 🙂

How Good Is Your English Vocabulary?

I am totally obsessed with such tests! 🙂 I know they are tricky and they put the most common words that are spelled incorrectly. To be honest, I never do 100% true. I make great use of my Etymology classes with such questions thanks to suffixes! 🙂

But anyway, I love taking them and compare my results to my friends’. 🙂

Here is one from Buzzfeed. This is a challenging one because it contains way too much Latin and Greek words that English borrowed. I’m ashamed to say but my score is apprx. 65%! :)))
