Student tips for avoiding homesickness

Leaving home and embarking on a new life as a student can be very exciting. This fabled 'coming of age' step that is so frequently eulogised is supposed to be one of the best times of our lives. So what happens if we don't feel the same buzz as everyone else? What if when we arrive at university or college, it all seems like a bit of an anti-climax? What if your expectations aren't met? What if all you think about is how much you miss home and family? 

All these 'what ifs' are…

When Zambia’s education minister, Dr. John Phiri announced this year’s results for 2013 Grade 12 examinations, which were generally very poor, he attributed the deplorable performance to the high levels of illiteracy among Grade 12 pupils.

The Thrill of Learning to Speak English in a London Based Language School

With around 7000 languages spoken all around the world, it's little surprise that communicating with an individual from another country can be a challenge.

However, despite so many languages in use today, there are some which are widely spoken and used in many places all over the globe.

English is the second most spoken tongue in the world, only topped by Mandarin Chinese, and is often referred to as the international language of trade. There's many ways in which to learn to…

Global Collaboration Science Inquiry Project

I would like to find a partner class in which students will study global infectious diseases and the impact of vaccines and antibiotics on mutation then have the students perform a CDC type forensic discovery in which they must identify an infectious bacterium via identification tests and finally build a model.
