Hello Cultural Enthusiasts:
Greetings and wish you are having a great July!

Belated 63rd Birthday, India. August 15 is the Independence day for India.
Read a touching poem by Padmini Natarajan about India in honor of the holiday this year.

This month, we featured one guest post by app2us- "10 things to avoid during a US student visa interview". This is a useful article for those looking for tips on applying for an American Student Visa.
Read that article here. Of course it's very common to study abroad in America, but for the few of us who decide to study abroad in India- you may want to prepare yourself for how to take tests. I wrote a post on test taking tips for Indian college classes. These tips were taken from my experience in 2000, I wonder if these tips are still relevant today! Please read the article, compare your experiences and leave your feedback here.

I would like to re-introduce you to Sudarshan Madabushi. Almsot 10 years ago he shared a series of articles on Ayurvedic diets. This may be of interest to you. To read his articles, click here.

Take a peek to the right side of this news letter for cultural tips from the months and years past. Here is a list of other posts from this past month that will be of interest:

ESL Podcast - Train Your Ear for American English - Distinguishing Sounds in Similar Sounding Words "S/TH","CH/SH", "T/TH"(Part 2 of 4)
