We talked about how she was raised bilingual despite never living overseas, and Honoka gave some really useful advice on how to help children learn English naturally! Honoka also runs a popular and bilingual Instagram page focused on Japanese feminism, so we also discussed Japan’s recent performance in the gender inequality rankings and tried to explain why Japan is so unequal.

James has led a very international life: as a child he lived in the UK, France, and Morocco. And as an adult he moved across the world to China, taught English, and eventually graduated top of his class from a Chinese university. I invited James on to Thinking in English today because I think all of you listening can be inspired by James’ approach to studying languages, his ability to throw himself into foreign cultures, and his dedication to becoming an advanced language speaker! Aside from that, we also discussed the difficulty of attending school in France, accidentally eating duck heads in China, and why the visas prevented him from his dream job at Huawei!

I think not. Over time, vaping can be less expensive than smoking, especially in regions where cigarettes are heavily taxed. The initial cost of a vaping device is typically higher, but the ongoing costs can be lower than buying cigarettes. + it gives freedom, because everyone can go to the website https://hazesmokeshop.com/product-category/vaporizers and find something for themselves

The history has shown that restricting anything leads to a greater desire for it.

The traditional dish in my country is GhormehSabzi. My country is Iran. It’s so delicious. You can try the best GhormehSabzi in London at Patogh restaurant.
