{September 30, 2008}   More Useful Links!

How many times did your students ask you…. “Hey teacher, can you teach us offensive words?”

How many times did they come to you and ask you about a weird term they heard and “it was wrongly translated, because this means another thing”, and you had to explain that words have several meanings according to usage in contexts, and so on…

This time, and thanks to those people from Argenteam who collected many of these links for their subtitle translation team, I want to share with you lots of links that may be useful for you or your students. Some of them are well known resources, so, come on! Start upgrading your English!

PS: I’ve checked all the links, anyway, check them before giving them to your students!
