1.Taking a Vacation (http://blogs.transparent.com)  One of the hassles of traveling to China is the language barrier. Flailing your arms back and forth in an effort to convey what you mean is not something you look forward to.

2. No Nonsense Newbie Tips: 会 vs. 能  (http://www.fluentflix.com) “Can” or “able” are English words that prove to be tricky when translating to Chinese. The differences between the two are very real, and our friends from Fluentflix are here to finally clear the confusion.

3. Multilingualism Revealed As Key to Employability   (http://www.youngacademic.co.uk) Discover why more and more people are learning a new language to stand out from the crowd.
