My mission was simple.  Go out and search the world wide web to find the best bloggers that blog about learning Mandarin Chinese.  What kind of blogs?  Chinese language blogs that talk about language learning resources, tips for speaking, offer listening practice, etc…   There are many blogs about living in China and while these are interesting it doesn’t really help students looking to improve their Chinese.  Below is a list of the best Chinese language learning blogs that specifically help students learn Chinese.

In the United States when I think of ladies underwear I think of Victoria’s Secret.  If you were to ask me to name another store I wouldn’t know how to answer.  Victoria’s Secret is a staple in any American mall, men lust over their sexy models, and it seems like every woman loves shopping there.  That’s the situation here in the US, but this got me thinking…where do ladies shop for bras and other intimate clothing in other countries?   What is the equivalent “Victoria’s Secret” in foreign countries and how do they advertise their product?  Armed only with the power of the Internet in this series of posts I set out to find out these answers and embark on the World Bra Tour – an exploration of Bra culture around the world.  Today I start off the tour with Germany.

Get Ready, French Tecktonic Dance Coming to USA

Apparently the hottest dance craze in France, which originated in Paris, and has quickly spread throughout Europe is a dance called “Tecktonic.”  It’s so popular that American based National Public Radio has predicted that it’s only a matter of time before Tecktonic comes to our American shores.  Watching the videos of Tecktonic dancing online I would have to say Tecktonic is more of a blend of aerobics, disco, glow stick rave dancing without the glow sticks with a pinch of epileptic seizures thrown in.  You have to see it to believe it and see it to start practicing.

It’s a guidebook that takes a classy “not trashy” look at Paris’s erotic and sensual underside for women looking to have a sexy time in Paris. (more…)
