Learn a language using just your gadgets

It’s difficult to avoid feeling a sense of achievement when I manage to carry on a spontaneous conversation with someone who speaks French and get compliments for my accent from a native.

Are You ‘Just’ A Lifestyle Entrepreneur? Good.

At The Value Builder System, we help owners that run companies with between $1 million and $20 million improve the value of their businesses, and occasionally I’ll hear our market referred to as “lifestyle entrepreneurs”.

Education should be about more than just job prospects

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development is correct that it’s time to take stock of policy on young people, university education and the jobs market (End drive to send more to university, say HR experts, 11 October), but we need a much wider remit than their narrow parameters. We need a fundamental rethink about the world of work and the purpose of education within it. We must ask the most basic question of all: what is education for?

Higher education has collapsed in India, we just don’t know it yet

The failure of Indian education system is stark when seen in light of the fact that thousands of students every year go abroad for college education.
