Europe



I've discovered on my brother's blog, a cool web-site called, "Babel Fish". When you log into their web-page, you can put in a URL address of any newspaper in the world and this program will translate the news for you!

I just wrote a letter to Elder in German, copied it to an email, and told him that I'd been practicing my German lately :) ♥ I asked him to read it and translate it back to me.

I hope you'll try this out like me...I found an article -all about kids learning to read and write for the newspaper. These children will be able have the paper delivered to their homes and help find stories to write about. What a great idea- for this elementary school and local newspaper to share with their community. *I can also, now see what's up in the world...

I'll have to go check out some Chinese news (my husbands from Beijing) even though I'm sure all the news will say "Everything here in China is going well, nothing new to report, long live Chairman Mao!"
