Crazy English
by Evan Osnos
Li Yang is China’s Elvis of English, perhaps the world’s only language teacher known to bring students to tears of excitement. His philosophy, captured by one of his many slogans, is flamboyantly patriotic:
“Conquer English to Make China Stronger!”…

Picture of my village ,Paralio Astros

Hello all .I send you some pictures of my village, and some words from its history.
I have grow up here since 1985 and I loved this place. Maybe the reason is that I love the sea . This is not island but it seems to you like island.
I’d like to see your pictures from your place that you live.

In April 1823, accommodated the 2nd Constitutional Assembly of the Greeks. The building that the Constitutional Assembly took place (next to the Ancient Museum) is a beautiful neoclassic building and it is described as perceivable monument. In Paralio Astros there is a gothic Venetian castle in the south peek of the hill. The natives used to say it "Island". In the latest years the castle was formatted in a strong, defensive complex. It has quadrilateral top view and keeps a big section of the fortification enclosure. In 18th century, three brothers (merchants from abroad) Zafeiropouloi, returned to their country in order to combat against the Turks.
On the same hill you can distinguish the sections of the wall of classical ages. From the castle, the view from Argolicos gulf is fabulous. The "Island" is the most graphical section of Paralio Astros with the traditional stone-made houses. At the edge of the dock there is a beautiful outdoor amphitheatre. The port has the ability to keep many sailing boats every summer

There is a continuous road connection from Paralio Astros to Athens- which is capital of Greece- with buses (duration 2 hours). Also the distance from Historical Nafplion is 30 km.

Close to Paralio Astros there is the hygrograph of Moustos, a beautiful lake which feeds from a source with brackish water. It is a rest station of emigrant birds and entertain a big variety of birds, fish, mammals, reptiles, and a small number of Careta-Careta turtles. The lake is connected to the sea with two artificial channels. The hygrograph is placed among the Natural European Network 2000 as a protected area, and is offered for a quiet walk.

Understanding the Sentence

Word recognition, decoding, and spelling are important skills in sorting out the meaning of a sentence, but good syntactic and working memory skills are also needed to get the job done.  Find out more in Education Connection's "Sentence Comprehension: The Connection to Reading Skills."  
This segment is the fourth in a six-part series called Reading Fundamentals.

Kaii Higashiyama: A Retrospective

I subscribe to "Art Knowledge News" as a source for another blog (Mountainair Arts). When this arrived in my mailbox, I thought of Sadamu and also about a class writing project.

your ASSIGNMENT: write us about an artist in or from your country. Educate us about your culture. Research but don't just copy something from a website. Put it in your own words. Don't forget to include at least one picture and a link to the artist's work. You can write about any kind of visual art - painters, muralists, filmmakers, photographers, sculptors, architects. and so on. Your artist does not have to be alive and can be from any period.
Kaii Higashiyama -
TOKYO - The National Museum of Modern Art opened the exhibit Kaii Higashiyama: A Retrospective through May 18. A highly praised postwar Japanese-style painter who became widely popular among the public, Kaii Higashiyama (1908-1999) is known for his landscapes conveying deep expression of the painter's inner world. Commemorating the 100th anniversary of his birth, this retrospective tries to capture the essence of Higashiyama's art by presenting 100 important works, ranging from early pieces such as Afterglow and Road, to later works including the screen paintings for Toshodaiji Temple, Sound of Waves and Balmy Wind in Yangchou.
Born in Yokohama, Higashiyama graduated from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music in 1931. He was awarded the Japan Art Institute prize in 1956. In 1968 he completed large murals on the New Imperial Palace, and in 1969 he was given the Order of Cultural Merits and designated as a person with cultural merit. In 1975 and 1980, he completed murals in Tōshōdai-ji.

The famous Japanese master Kaii Higashiyama has generously donated more than 700 of his works (paintings, studies, sketches, etc.) to the museum. To house and display these works, the Higashiyama Kaii Gallery was built and opened in April of 1990.

The gallery holds paintings such as "Vibrant Greens", "Forest with a White Horse", and "Evening Quiet"
, and also series of sketches such as "Landscape in Europe", "Journey into Tohoku and Shinshu", "Landscape in China", "Landscape in Northern Europe":, "Four Seasons in Kyoto", "Landscape with a White Horse" and "Spring and Autumn in Yamato". There are also sketches and studies for the Nitten Exhibition and for the Toshodai-ji Murals which show his inspiration and the process of painting.
