Guest Post: The Influence of Technology on the English Language


The history of the English language can be dated as far back as the 5th Century AD when three Germanic tribes, Angles, Saxons and Jutes came to England and displaced the Celtic language that was spoken. The invasion of the Vikings, as well as the influence of Latin, caused the language to evolve further, and contributed a substantial amount of the vocabulary used today. This continued evolution has led to English being the second most used language in the world.

Second Language Meetup

Having had so much fun on the previous meeting, I joined the event again for the second time which took place on Saturday, April 25th. First meeting was awesome, but the second one was even more awesome. Not only we had more participants, but we also had a special language host.

First Language Meetup


I bet the majority of language learners from anywhere around the world must have heard about an event where language learners meet and converse in foreign languages, so-called Language Meetups. Me either, but I just joined my very first meetup yesterday! Don't know what hold me back from joining it before, anyway, I enjoyed it very much.
