Tourism seems to bethe world's leading industry. Consequences of trips abroadare social, cultural, environmental and, last but not least, economic. People think only about themselves getting away from it allto countries that offer any kind of unforgettable experience. Firstly, it causes cultural destruction – foreigners’ culture integrates in native one and it will lead to the mixture of cultures in the long run. Another side of it is commercialization of culture to let tourists soak up the atmosphere. Thereby, the value of the culture turns out to be downplayed and showed mostly in wearing costumes due to existing stereotypes. Moreover, locals can be prejudiced ifthey are different from holiday-makers, e.g. by color of the skin of religious faith – and that is discrimination itself! Next disadvantage lies in tourist’s preference to spend a holiday in isolated areas which have always attracted tourists. They passionate about idea to go for a wander in such places, and they all are

They are likely to fill themselves up with junk food and eat ice- creams and sweets one after another getting no nutritional value from it. Having a quick sugary or salty snack while burning the midnight oil is not a sensible decision too. In addition, it becomes a habit very fast. Moreover, usually students have no time or energy to take up exercises. Sedentary lifestyle, with all mentioned above, leads not only to obesity! With such a diet one is likely to again heart disease, ruin the immune system and decrease his/her ability to concentrate.

It is speaker’s firm conviction that every child – is a gifted child and the formula for perfect system is a) To focus on what job will be like tomorrow b) Get rid of tedious tasks which require kids to hit the books and craminformation they will never need c) Use mixture of broadband + collaboration + encouragement In the very beginning of the second video Ken Robinson, leading authority in this field, says that 80% of pupils in US drop out a high school.

Hello, my dear friend. I’m sure that little slices of everyday life could be very funny and inspiring, if you share them with good friends.

Using your dictionary effectively

There are two types of dictionaries: prescriptive and descriptive. Prescriptive works for for native speakers, but not for those who just begun learning a new language, so if you are a beginner, you have to use descriptive dictionary instead of prescriptive to make yourself understoodthe words you looking up.

Every english learner who wants to be effective have to know how to build vocabulary in appropriate way.  It is a great idea to make a note of unknown words you’ve heard till the day, then to find their definitions and to go through this list from time to time. But don’t look up every single word, sometimes it’s better to guess the meaning from a context.

To have an ability to speak fluently, you must explore different ways of expanding your knowledge. Do your best using step by step approach and after a while you will get better with nohustle and bustle.

I wish you to achieve your goal as soon as possible.
