Discovering Montréal’s History and Craft Beer Culture with the Montréal Brewpub Experience

Experiencing local culture is an incredible way to fall in love with a place and its people. When you do that with someone who has insider knowledge and a vast expertise, that feeling of falling love with the city is inevitable. Especially when food is involved. With an afternoon to spare, I decided to try out the Montréal Brewpub Experience. Accompanied by a well-researched and...

An Introduction Sociolinguistics and its Importance in Language Learning

Sociolinguistics. Sounds like a pretty academic word, right? But the truth is, the field of sociolinguistics is a pretty interesting subject.
