It’s quite similar, the only difference is, if I’ve dropped the .wordpress.com extension in the URL. THAT’S IT… nothing drastic 🙂

o, and now you can join a forum / community chat to inquire, discuss, and learn about the various aspects pertaining to living and teaching abroad right from people who have done just that.

Killing you softly… but how?… through Fluoride in your drinking water

HARMFUL EFFECTS OF FLUORIDE Fluoride is used as an insecticide and a roach killer. Even at the level they use to fluoridate your public water supply, usually at the rate of about 1 part fluoride for every million parts of water (1 ppm) by weight, it causes severe problems. As little as one-tenth of an ounce of fluoride will cause death. It is more poisonous than lead and just slightly less poisonous than arsenic. No one will die from drinking one glass of fluoridated water, but it is the long term chronic effects of drinking fluoridated water that affects health. Dental fluorosis is one of the earlier signs of fluoride poisoning, appearing in mild cases as a chalky area on the tooth, and in more advanced cases, teeth become yellow brown or black and the tips break off. Fluoride in the drinking water leads to fluoride levels in tissues and organs which damage enzymes. This results in a wide range of chronic diseases. Fluoride weakens the immune system and may cause allergic type reactions including dermatitis, eczema and hives. It causes birth defects and genetic damage. Fluoride is likely to aggravate kidney disease, diabetes and hypothyroidism. The amount consumed in drinking water has been shown to lower thyroid activity in humans. It also causes the breakdown of collagen which results in wrinkling of the skin and the weakening of ligaments, tendons and muscles. There are a number of ways that fluoride can be administered. The most insidious way is through the drinking water. Some of you have it in your mouthwashes, or in your toothpaste, or you may take a fluoride supplement which is dispensed in pills or drops.

What is ESL? What is EFL? and what is the difference?

ESL stands for “English as a Second Language.” TESL stands for Teaching English as a Second Language.

Now you may have heard of ESL, EFL, ESOL and/or TESL, TEFL & TESOL.

The “T” always stands for Teaching. 

The “E” always stands for English.

The “S” and the “F” is where it may get a bit confusing.

S = Second (Language); F = Foreign (Language)

When the “S” is used (appropriately), it refers to teaching English to non-native English speakers of the language in a country where English is the main language. i.e., You teach ESL to spanish speakers in America.

When the “F” is used (appropriately), it refers to teaching English to non-native speakers of the language outside of an English speaking country, often times in the learners OWN country, i.e. teaching English in South Korea. English is not a second language to them, it is a foreign language.

ESOL = English to Speakers of Other Languages
