I spent much of 2011 trawling the internet trying to find information about studying in Canada in 2012 and the differences between Canadian colleges and universities. I wanted to get a good qualification but I also wanted to minimise the number of years I was going to study and the amount it was going to cost me.  

This was a long and stressful year, and even though I did a lot of in-depth research,there was still huge knowledge gaps in the information, which led to me making several mistakes in the process.

I hope this article helps you to get the information you need to make the right decisions when planning to study overseas.

This blog gives you the English sentences you need to interrupt a speaker during a meeting. 

Everybody knows that interrupting somebody when they're talking can be rude.

However, sometimes it's necessary to ask questions in order to fully understand what the speaker is saying. If your first language is not English the speaker will likely be expecting you to ask more clarification questions, so you should be prepared to do it when needed. 

If you follow the polite sentences included in this article then you should be fine.

I had a miracle experience. Oh my goodness- I was hit by a car!

On the weekend, I was walking on Main Street, which is close to my house, to go to the cafe. I had to cross the road so I made sure the light was green and kept walking.

Suddenly, there was the sound of the heavy braking and two cars crashed in front of me. After they crashed they didn't stop and kept coming towards me. I was so scared!

I tried to avoid them but one car hit my knee. Fortunately, the contact was light and I was only slightly hurt. In total three cars crashed.
