Three things about languages today:
--- 113 public school teachers in the Philippines will be taking Spanish courses this summer to more effectively teach the language. This is taking place at the Instituto Cervantes.
--- An article about a book featuring Esperanto translations of 200 Maltese proverbs. With 200 proverbs it's probably more of a pamphlet than a book but no samples of the proverbs are given so I can't tell.
Finally, an interview with Richard Simcott. The reason I'm embedding it is because I like his analogy of sports to language aptitude (actually language interest). I won't spoil it through paraphrasing it here though.
