Why online books are important for your kids? Mon, 01 Oct 2018 07:50:21 +0000 In earlier times, books made up of paper were the only type of books available. Do you know why? The answer is very simple because this was the only format available at that time but nowadays, online books have offered another better option for the readers especially kids. If you are having a kid then ask him/her to download the online books and if he/she can not download the book on their own then you should do it for themselves.

Online books are also of two types I.e., online available books and online books. The online available books are the books which you can order and you can get in some days while the online books are the books which are free to read and you don’t have to place the order for the same. In fact, it is much easier to read the online books I.e., click on the then you will enter into the home page and then you can download the book of your liking.

Do you why the online books are better?

There are several reasons which make the online books better and some of them are mentioned below:

  • The first and foremost reason is the convenient nature. You do not have to carry the heavy weight paper books with yourself. You can have the book in your pocket within your mobile. You just have to click on the link and then you can read your book.

  • The second reason is that you can read the book anywhere. Whether you are going on a trip or you are going to any other place then you can read the books. You can have the book in your hand i.e., by the means of a laptop, tablet, mobile phone etc. Whenever you are free, you can get access to the book and you can start reading.
  • The last and the important reason is that you do not have to pay for it, unlike other paper books. You can just click on the link and download the book. That is it and you can start reading. In this way, you can read as much as books you want.

Learning Spanish online with 121Spanish Wed, 12 Sep 2018 08:22:58 +0000 As the Latin-speaking population of the United States continues to grow, soon to eclipse the English-speaking population, learning at least some Spanish becomes more and more important. This is particularly valid on the off chance that you are an expert.

But as a busy professional you have little time free for attending classes amongst all your other commitments. Going abroad to learn Spanish is a distant dream, and attending local classes is problematic when you have busy periods or your schedule changes. That is why learning Spanish online with 121Spanish is the ideal solution for those looking to advance their language skills.

Learning Spanish online with 121Spanish puts you in control of your learning, with its own booking system that allows you to schedule your classes whenever you like, cancel and re-book them if something comes, and do as many or as few classes as you prefer in any given time period.

Classes are offered with live native-speaking teachers from a variety of Latin countries and Spain. They are all professional and qualified teachers who take pride in their language and their ability to work with students from 5 years old and upwards, and at all skill levels. Generally, students take one hour once or twice per week at suitable times. Teachers can assign additional homework and make recommendations for additional online learning materials to leverage the student’s time with their live teacher.

While some students take online Spanish classes with the same teacher for a period of years, others may choose to change teachers every month or so, or even to take classes with two or more different teachers at the same time. The system is flexible and students can set their own pace and study pattern. Each teacher brings a different perspective to learning Spanish, with a different culture, accent, and speaking style, that all help to develop a broad understanding of Spanish as it is spoken by Latin people.

For those who are seeking to learn Spanish for specific purposes, teachers can introduce vocabulary and other materials relevant to a wide range of disciplines, from law to medicine, sport to cuisine. Teachers can also help students to prepare for language exams in their field, using past papers and sample exams to prepare students for the live exam.

With a free trial class available for any prospective student, there is no excuse for not giving 121Spanish a try!

Body Language Tips for Interviews Thu, 23 Aug 2018 17:40:48 +0000 Ever heard of body language? Just as you as a candidate, communicate your suitability in an interview, your body communicates too. The way people perceive, especially at your workplace, is an effect of your body language. For some, body language may be facial gestures, while for some it may be a good posture. However, it includes gestures, eye movements, body postures, and facial expressions, and the way we employ these gestures convey a lot about our personality. Since we are always engrossed with other paraphernalia while appearing for an interview, we forget about our body language. Here are some quick tips on how to exhibit a positive body language:

  • Taking deep breaths are advised by doctors as it regulates blood flow and helps us make decisions with a composed demeanor.
  • Your body language should elicit composure and confidence. Don’t be frantic and search your portfolio for papers.
  • Receptionists are often asked to observe your behavior without letting you know. Feel and be comfortable as it will form a good impression.
  • While waiting for your turn, don’t hunch your shoulders or seem closed. Keep your back straight and chest out which symbolizes confidence and assertiveness.
  • A firm right handshake with your interviewer is a sign that you are giving them respect but never cover their hand with yours as it could be perceived as a sign of domination.
  • Maintaining a regular and an optimum level of eye contact can help you establish your trustworthiness. Look away sometimes so as to not make your recruiter anxious.
  • Align your body position to that of your interviewer as it reflects an unsaid admiration and agreement.
  • Keeping your arms and legs crossed makes you appear guarded and defensive. Keep them uncrossed.
  • Smile as often as you can as it contributes to the creation of a positive environment.
  • Do not stuff your hands in your pocket or keep them halfway across the table. Find a place and place them comfortable. It displays confidence.
  • At regular intervals, nod. Nodding while listening to a conversation demonstrates interest, agreeability, and understanding.
  • Be in control of your body movements in front of the interviewer.
  • You must place your feet firmly on the ground and not leave them hanging. Restrict moving your legs often. Or if you please, cross them correctly.
  • When the interview gets over, don’t be stand up and leave instantly as it will definitely reflect your nervousness. Gather your belongings, rise, smile, and leave with a composed body language.

Apart from the above-mentioned gestures and movements, people have been observed covering their mouths while speaking, constantly fixing their hair, touching their faces too much, or constantly fiddling with something in their hands. All these gestures subsume an inbuilt insecurity, complex, or self-consciousness. Make sure to use these tips to overcome any issues while interviewing for jobs in India.

Short Video Is Better For Summarizing a Complex Topic Mon, 20 Aug 2018 17:11:17 +0000 Because on-line search databases normally contain only one line of an abstract, it is vital to add a short video to better summarize any topic that is complex. This short explainer video, when made interesting will entice readers into reading the complete copy of your full paper. Here it will be described how to summarize a topic that is complex with a short video content.

For students

The use of one-line databases of research is widespread, so currently writing a good abstract has now become even more important that it was 10 years ago. But lately, short video summarizing the topic now serves the purpose of “selling” your work. It often now takes the place of an abstract by simply showing the reader what is in the rest of the attached paper. Even better a good short video convinces the reader to leave the comfort of the office to go and hunt down a copy of the entire article but only if the short video has been made interesting enough. This is vital for the students to learn how to do.

Short video

The fact that an abstract is rather brief, it needs to do almost all the work of convincing the reader that the multi-page paper will be interesting for many to read. Now, with the short video comes a better way of replacing what the abstract has always been doing. If you have written a good abstract it will be even easier to convert into a short video. This is more and more being done at some college and university.

Replacing written abstract

Abstracts have always assisted the role of “selling” your work. But currently, that “selling” of your work needs to be replaced by many with a good video abstract. And videos or becoming easier and easier for almost anyone to do. If you want to sell your work or make it stand out, the short video is beginning to be the way to do it.


Writing an abstract that is effective abstract is often hard work and it should compensate you by amplifying the impression on the world by alluring people to read your publications. Now it looks as if the short video can do this much better and you will have more people reading your publication. It is time for such a change as it is a better way to show a complex topic, and it will also surprise your readers. Nothing entices better than surprise.

Everything You Need to Know About Associate Degrees Mon, 20 Aug 2018 07:50:13 +0000 Have you completed schooling, and are looking to join in a university? If yes, then you might have come across the term “associate degree” or might come across websites providing you an online associate degree. It is different from a bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees, and PhDs. While it is a degree that many students pursue in the US, many others don’t know what an associate degree is. This article will shed light on what an associate degree is and everything you need to know about it.

What is an associate degree?

An associate degree is an academic program that can be taken after secondary school at the undergraduate level. It aims to provide students with basic academic and technical knowledge, and transferable skills that help them get employment easily or helps them study further in a specialized field. These degrees are offered commonly in the US and some parts of Canada, Hong Kong, Netherlands, and Australia. Other countries have similar programs but under different names, like foundation degrees in the UK.

In the US, associate degrees are available at various universities and colleges, including technical colleges, community colleges, junior colleges, affiliated colleges under universities, and even university institutes. For many students, an associate degree is a preparation for a bachelor’s degree, while for others it’s a qualification that helps with the chances of getting employed. An associate degree provides more employment options to students than a basic secondary-level degree does.

What is the difference between an associate degree and a bachelor’s degree?

Both associate’s degree and bachelor’s degree are undergraduate degrees that a student can pursue after completing his/her secondary level education. Although there are many similarities between a bachelor’s degree and an associate’s degree, there are some fundamental differences as well, that might confuse you when choosing the best degree for you. If that’s the case, here are some key differences between the two degrees:

  • Time

For any degree, there are a specified number of study hours or course credits that a student needs to complete. The study hours or the course credits vary depending on the course, institution, and the location. While a bachelor’s degree usually takes three to four years or 120 credit hours to complete, an associate degree takes two years or 60 credit hours to complete full-time.

Students can also choose to study part-time for an associate degree, but part-time courses may take longer than full-time classes. Also, it is possible for a student to take up a fast-track course while pursuing an associate degree. These courses work at an accelerated pace and involve studies in holidays as well.

  • Costs

The tuition fees for any associate degree tends to be much lower than any bachelor’s degree. As the course takes less time to complete and provides necessary information on the chosen subject, it costs very less for students. However, not all associate degree courses are cheap; it depends on the institution and the course that you want to pursue.

  • Requirements to get into a degree

Getting into an associate degree is considered much more comfortable than getting into any bachelor’s degree course. Although there are some necessary requirements for a student to get into an associate degree program, they are less competitive when compared to the essentials you need to get into any bachelor’s degree.

Types of associate degrees

Generally, there are four types of associate degree programs that students can choose from, AS (Associate of Science), AA (Associate of Arts), AAS (Associate of Applied Science), and AAA (Associate of Applied Arts). While AA and AS are targeted for students who want to pursue a bachelor’s degree in the future, the AAA and the AAS programs are more focused on preparing them for a specific field. If you want to pursue an associate degree, you can check out various universities, or you can also check for online associate degree programs that suit your needs.

Back to School Checklist Thu, 09 Aug 2018 10:46:28 +0000

New clothes

Backpack check

New sneakers check

Writing utensils check

Notebooks check

Binder check

Calculator check

Crayons check

You are more than likely checking off these items for the new school year that’s rapidly approaching. Summer’s exit is nearby making way for the entrance of Fall. Children are in their last weeks of Summer camp and vacations. Social media is flooded with some children holding signs welcoming their first day with anticipation of what the school year will bring. Some children are so ecstatic that they are marking off the calendars as they count down the days. The children are bubbling with joy as they can’t wait to meet their new Teacher, rekindle old friendships and make new friends. The majority of them are thrilled to be in a new grade and looking forward to embarking upon the challenges that the grade entails.

Knowing that your child’s first day of school will be here before you know it, you begin schooling them before that day comes. For emergency purposes, you begin encouraging your little ones to memorize your contact information as well as the family members of others and even your home address. You give them the pep talk about “Stranger Danger” as they nod their little heads as a non-verbal sign that they understand. You then proceed on to ensure that your child is protected at school. You let them know that if anyone hits them, is name calling or even bothersome to them to report it to the Teacher right away. These are great discussions that you should be having in order to keep your child “safe”. So you feel like you done everything possible to prepare your child for the school year, you took every safety measure possible. But did you? What can you possibly be missing?

Since we are discussing safety, did you take the time to have a discussion about Personal Body Safety with your child? Why should you do that? Teaching your child about Personal Body Safety which entails boundaries for their bodies is IMPORTANT. According to statistics 1 out of 4 girls and 1 out of 6 boys are sexually assaulted before their 18th Birthday. Although I hope that no child has to endure the unthinkable and become a victim it’s always good to prepare for the what if’s. Similarly to you teaching them about stranger danger, you hope that it will never happen to your child but you prepare them anyway. Because by now you are coming to the realization that you cannot protect them when they are out of your sight so you give them the tools necessary to protect themselves.

By now I’m almost certain that I convinced you why Personal Body Safety discussions with your child are necessary. Maybe you are afraid and unsure as to how to approach this “Taboo” topic. I am convinced that I have the solution in the form of a children’s book for Ages 4 and up!

No More Bad Secrets was designed with you and your child in mind. This age-appropriate book on Personal Body Safety is used as a tool to begin or continue that discussion. Using a simple, direct and age-appropriate approach it teaches children a variety of topics such as:

The difference between good and bad secrets

Who to turn to for help if they are keeping a bad secret

The difference between an appropriate and inappropriate touch

Designed for ages 4 and up you can rest assured that concerned Parents, Caretakers, and Educators can approach this topic with ease. Children would be able to receive guidance that they can understand, practice and put to use.
