The richness of its culture is almost as diverse as the languages spoken here. Did you know that there are 22 primary languages in India, and within them approximately 1000 dialects! My ears have been hard at work on this trip!

Terpii Travels: Spain

Culture, Terpii Travels

Holá! Terpii here. This month I am hanging out in the wonderful country of Spain! Currently in Madrid warming up with a typical Madrid dish, churros con chocolate! Have you ever tried it? Although the winters throughout Spain are generally mild, it still gets quite chilly in the interior of the country. The Pyrenees in the North even get snow! I may have to catch a train up there and get some skiing in. The train is a great way to get around, by the way, if you plan on visiting anytime soon. Spain is one of the world’s oldest cultures with a rich heritage and has so much to offer. Below are some fun facts I have learned thus far:

[3/3] The Emoji Revolution: EMOJI TRANSLATION

Culture

Welcome to the conclusion of our “Emoji Revolution” blog series! We hope you found the information in the first two installments interesting and valuable. As we researched the topic and saw headlines, tweets, and emails galore featuring the beloved emoji, we couldn’t help but think about how the fun little characters are truly a language of their own. It’s interesting how so many ancient texts such as hieroglyphics, used images to tell a story. These pictograms eventually morphed into a written system consisting of letters or characters in most cultures around the world. Thousands of years later we are completing the circle and beginning to incorporate pictograms into our language once again.
