    Burmese is the official language of Myanmar or Burma, and it is spoken by approximately 65% of the Burmese population. Although Myanmar or Burma has approximately one hundred spoken languages, most of these languages are spoken by ethnic minorities.

    In Myanmar, Burmese is the primary language of instruction, while English is the secondary language that is being taught in schools. Interestingly, using minority languages in education and government is discouraged and has been not approved; but minority languages can be of course be used at home.

    The Burmese language is intriguing, and sometimes foreigners, including language students may confused about the rich heritage of the Burmese language. There have been controversies about the name of the country since the 1930s. In the Burmese language, the country Burma/Myanmar is known as either Myanma or Bama. Military regime thinks that Myanma is more inclusive of minorities than Bama, thus, they gave the Burmese country a new name Myanmar. However, many of the minorities who do not speak Burmese believe that the name Myanmar is actually disrespectful, so many of the Burmese today are still accustomed to the name “Burma” as the most appropriate name of the country.

    Burmese may not be the hardest language in the world; however, learning how to read and write this language may involve oddities and difficulties while learning. One of the interesting facts about the Burmese language is that almost every syllable has its meaning in Myanmar language, such as the names of towns and people.

    Learning Burmese needs a lot of effort; it does require a combined effort between the teacher and the learner. Burmese culture is embedded in the language itself, and should be given special attention in the process of language learning. This is to ensure that language students will understand and respect the cultural differences between languages.

    The Burmese language may not be a major language and has no tremendous linguistic status in the international arena; however, learning this language is an investment, a good asset to complete anybodys academic career.

    Although the dominance of the English language is widespread all around the world, it doesnt entirely necessary mean that the vital significance of other languages like Burmese language should be neglected.

    Language learning will help students to have a future and a career not only in the translation and interpreting industry, but also it generates major benefits in the working skills of language students in any industry.

    Just like any other languages, the Burmese language is important as well. Thus, it should be noted that people should not ignore the importance and value of the Burmese language in communication and to their cultural identity.

    As college costs continue to rise, so does the number of students taking out student loans: Nearly two-thirds of students attending four-year schools now graduate with debt from student loans. Over the past decade, student debt levels have shot up by 108 percent.

    While these numbers are significant on their own, the number of borrowers who are defaulting on their student loans has also skyrocketed to the highest level in over a decade. Preliminary data from the Department of Education shows that federal student loan default rates are coming close to topping 7 percent, compared to 4.6 percent just two years earlier, an increase thats raising alarms about borrowers ability to pay off their student loan debt in the current economy.

    “The volume of people in trouble is definitely increasing,” said Deanne Loonin, a staff attorney for the Boston-based National Consumer Law Center and consultant for low-income student loan borrowers.

    Unstable Job Market Leading to More Student Loan Defaults Education Department officials warn that while these default numbers are high, they may be just the tip of the iceberg.

    This most recent federal student loan default rate is for the fiscal year 2007 and only accounts for students who started repaying their federal college loans between Oct. 1, 2006, and Sept. 30, 2007, and who had defaulted by the end of September 2008. The data doesnt include borrowers who, unable to repay their federal student loans, have gone into deferment or forbearance or borrowers who have defaulted on non-federal private student loans.

    The student loan default rate is poised to climb even higher as the 1.8 million students graduating college next month who are saddled with student loan debt face one of the toughest job markets in over a quarter-century. The national unemployment rate has already broken the 10-percent mark, with regional unemployment ballooning even higher in certain states.

    “Its scary thinking I could have spent $50,000 a year for the last four years and still go back to working at Wegmans, but its a reality,” Catherine Mendola, a senior at Colgate University, told The Associated Press (“College Grads Face Worst Job Market in Years,” USA Today, April 3, 2009).

    Debt From Private Student Loans Particularly Troubling To make matters worse, an increasing number of these soon-to-be graduates will be leaving school with debt from private student loans, which typically carry higher interest rates than federal student loans, along with less-flexible repayment options.

    The percentage of undergraduates who took out private student loans in the 200708 academic year jumped to 14 percent, up from 5 percent in 200304, according to the Project on Student Debt.

    Private student loans arent required to offer the same deferment, forbearance, or income-based repayment options as federal loans, making it generally more difficult for struggling private loan borrowers to obtain a reprieve from their student loan payments and avoid defaulting.

    Teaching, whether it is private tuition or public school teaching, is a highly respectable and important profession worldwide. Educators play a vital role in teaching the next generation of people and advertently creating an advanced society. This explains the relatively high salaries educators earn globally. In Australia, a beginner teacher’s salary is roughly US$41,109, while the average beginner teachers salary in the United Kingdom is US$34,488. During a recent admission talk by the National Institute of Education in Singapore, the speaker mentioned that the top income earners in Switzerland, South Korea and Singapore are also teachers.

    Therefore, educators in Singapore are highly responsible in moulding students futures. However, there is a stark contrast in the degree of responsibility between a private tutor and a MOE school teacher. While a private tutor focuses only on the subject he teaches, a public school teacher finds himself caught up with other duties such as handling CCA, meeting expectations of the school and handling the well-being of students while projecting a professional image simultaneously.

    Yet the irony lies in the fact that despite having a more hectic work schedule than a private tutor, some claim that school teachers are not doing enough. For instance, some suspect that it is precisely because junior college teachers are too busy with other tasks that they fail to deliver a good job in providing H2 Mathematics tuition and H2 Physics tuition. As such, the expectations of a top tutor have often been modelled after private tutors instead, who may be more specialized and knowledgeable in these subjects.

    Many families in Singapore spend hundreds monthly to register and engage their children for private H2 Mathematics tuition and H2 Physics tuition, some of which provide more innovative methods for students to excel. In reality though, the meagre 2 hours spent weekly with the tutor can only be more effective than the many hours in school if the students themselves fully utilize the time for enrichment rather than merely repeating the concepts which have been taught in schools.

    Nevertheless, the status of school teachers must never be relegated to the backseat as they provide the benchmark for private tutors and students alike. While it is essential that educators maintain their role as top tutors as far as possible, students should not rely and expect to be spoon fed by them, but instead take the initiative to learn and improve their grades.

    At times, teachers may feel inundated with theories, methodologies, teaching strategies, etc.etc.etc.

    But please know that you can decide on how you want to run your classroom, and how you want to apply your teaching strategies.

    One bit of information that I always pass on to my student teachers and teachers with little experience, is that it’s important to learn from more experienced teachers by watching them teach and reading as much as they can about any teaching strategies they have written. After that they will be in a much better position to pick and choose the teaching methods that suit them them the best.

    Here are my top “7 Essential Core Teaching Strategies” that have held true for me throughout my 33 years of teaching from K-6.

    1. Classroom Management is the teaching strategy that I consider to be most important in creating an effective teaching environment to ensure that your lessons will run smoothly and each teaching day will be a success.

    There are many facets to ensuring effective classroom management including assertive classroom discipline, classroom behavior management, verbal and non-verbal communication strategies, classroom rules and classroom time management. Learning the details behind these essential classroom management strategies is the first step to success.

    2. Know your students well. You should have different expectations for each one of your students. It is imperative to create a genuine bond with them (by the way that works both ways).

    3. Continually Encourage and Motivate. Have your students set their own goals, helping them to attain them and then strive for new ones.

    4. Build an effective teacher student relationship by displaying a caring and compassionate attitude towards your students. Show that you’re interested in them as people and they will return the favour (in most cases). Be sure to build up their self worth by maintaining a positive disposition.

    5. Maintaining a communication dialogue with parents is very important. You are responsible for and accountable to your students so you must be professional, ready to meet and discuss any situation with parents. In some cases this will require a fair bit of tact and diplomacy on your part. On the other hand parents must respect you and your efforts as well.

    6. Teachers need to show accountability primarily towards their students. But they are also accountable to parents, their school and themselves to provide their best effort every day throughout the year.

    7. Teaching is “the best profession ever” if you have a real passion for it. Show your love for what you do, have FUN with your students and you will all benefit and learn from your experiences.

    Digest these teaching strategies, play around with them, and implement those that fit your style of teaching. I truly hope that following these strategies will help you out and will make your life a little easier.

    Try These Strategies and Have Fun!

    An ACS student loan is a loan that is serviced by the Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. It is a company known for outsourcing technology and business solutions. Universities across the country use the ACS student loan services because of the company’s reputation for using technology to effectively handle some of the more difficult aspects of loan services.

    ACS student loans allow students to make payments online, instantly be able to see the status of an account, make changes to personal details such as name and address, and also to be able to receive email notifications when a payment has been processed.

    Many different programs for financial aid fall under the heading of an ACS student loan. One of the major ACS student loan groups is the Campus Based Student Loan Program (CBSL), which includes Federal Perkins Loans, Nursing Student Loans (NSL), and Institutional Loan Programs, among others. Another major group of educational loans handled by ACS is the Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFEL), which includes the Stafford (GSL) Loans, PLUS loans to parents of students, and loan consolidation services. ACS also has the ability to handle many other groups of educational loans donated by a variety of private companies.

    For those who do not already have an ACS student loan, applications and guidelines for different financial aid options are available online. The ACS website gives a clear example of how to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, and demonstrates what the results mean in terms of your eligibility for financial aid. Furthermore, applications for both Stafford and PLUS loans for parents can be found on the ACS website, and can be completed and sent in online.

    If you are the holder of an ACS student loan already, you may be interested in knowing about the benefits of student loan consolidation. The ACS website provides information and application forms that could help you lock in a lower rate and reduce your monthly payment amount.

    Some other tools that can help you with your ACS student loan are a repayment calculator, guidelines from the IRS about how to use your student loans for tax relief, and a glossary of important student loan-related terms.

    All in all, an ACS student loan is one that will give the borrower plenty of ease and flexibility when it comes to loan servicing from application to repayment and consolidation. ACS works with a number of universities across the United States, including the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Vermont. Even if your specific university does not offer student loans handled by ACS, their website is a treasure trove of helpful tools and information, and well worth a look.

    Why Parents Choice of Private Schools Has Changed Lives.

    The education and preparation provided by private schools are unparalleled. Statistics show that pupils who attend private schools are four times more likely to achieve high honors when they enroll into high school than their public school counterparts. Students graduating from private schools have demonstrated an ability to not only excel in high school, but in college as well.

    Further statistics show that students at fee-paying schools made up 43.9 percent of those given places at Oxford University and 41 percent of those at Cambridge. Also, 92.9 percent of pupils leaving independent schools went on to higher education in 2008. This highlights an alarming inadequacy in public education. There must be a proportionate amount of equally bright children at state schools, but they are missing out on the top grades due to an inadequate educational environment.

    One private school graduate from Carden Academy explained Carden Academy gave me the ability to balance all of the activities in which I was involved in while maintaining a high GPA (3.7). My deep knowledge of and comfort with the fundamentals of sentence composition and parts of speech served as an indispensable skill while in high school honors and Advanced Placement courses, and in college, writing my larger papers were a breeze.

    Because private schools tend to offer a more rigorous curriculum than public schools, students attending private schools are better prepared for the demands of college. Several college admissions have noticed the difference in education and given added weight to attendance at competitive private schools. In order to give your child the best opportunities for academic excellence, private schools have demonstrated their unrivaled ability to help students develop into world-class scholars. By educating your child at a private school, they will gain the knowledge and confidence to succeed not only in academics, but in life.

    My brother recently decided to become a pilot. Becoming a pilot is a costly venture and since I work in the industry as a buyer, he contacted me for some advice on student pilot materials and headsets. The supplies were easily referred as there are four main publishers of student pilot material and Jeppesen seems to be the most popular. However, it was difficult to direct him to the best aviation headset to purchase.

    In order to direct him to the most cost effective headset I needed to determine a couple of factors. The first is price. The most popular student headsets are made by David Clark, and the most popular headset for students is the H10-13.4, the cheapest price I found was about $299.95. Another popular brand would have to be AvComm. AvComm offers a PNR Headset AC-200PNR that is in the $100.00 price range. Finally, Aviation Supplies and Academics offers a headset called the Airclassic HS-1 that is in the same price range the AvComm PNR. Therefore, the cheaper headsets are made by AvComm and ASA.

    However, cost is not the only aspect to look at when purchasing an aviation headset. What about reliability? David Clark and AvComm both offer 5 year manufacturer warranties, while the ASA HS-1 has a lifetime guarantee. Headsets often go defective as cords can acquire shorts, they can be sat on, or even crushed in a flight bag. Therefore, a lifetime warranty is definitely tempting. This aspect goes hand and hand with cost as I am sure that you will feel better replacing a $100.00 headset rather than a more expensive model. My flight department use to operate with 12 Bose Aviation X headsets, although the headsets worked great and were comfortable, they were always being broken by the replacement of a 9 volt battery that controls the electronic noise reduction. After paying for 10 or more $500.00 repairs to these headsets, our flight department decided to downgrade to a Telex commercial headset. The same thought that goes into purchasing headsets for commercial or corporate use will benefit student pilots as well. Less investment = less lost.

    Finally, the last topic would be in regards to comfort. According to reviews all the people that purchase David Clark headsets are satisfied with the comfort while ASA and AvComm have mixed reviews. A chief pilot at my organization talked to me about the HS-1 Headset. He states, the headset works great and still works to this day, but the headband was quite uncomfortable for long trips. However, there is a solution to comfort issue on either the ASA or the Avcomm Headsets. Gel and foam ear seals along with replacement headbands can offer additional comfort to these units ultimately making them comparable to the David Clark Model. Total investment in upgrades would be in the 150-175 range.

    Given this information, what headset are you going to buy?
