- Find out who, from your friends and colleagues, has a different mother language than you. Talk to them and find out more about their birth places.
- Romania has 9 historical regions: spend your summer holiday discovering one of them. Talk to the local people (especially the old people) and pick-up interesting or funny expressions.
- Keep a diary or blog with all the new idioms you hear from dialects and their meaning. Many Romanian dialects have unique expressions that you’ve never heard of; learn them and use them in your conversations – I’m sure you’ll draw positive attention on you.
- If you have children or nephews, talk to them about linguistic and cultural diversity; teach them a little bit of a different mother language than theirs. They’ll be thrilled to show off their new vocabulary.
Just to make things clear, here is a simple definition of fog: Fog is a cloud in contact with the ground. Fog differs from other clouds only in that fog touches the surface of the Earth. The same cloud that is not fog on lower ground may be fog where it contacts higher ground such as hilltops or mountain ridges. Fog is distinct from mist only in its density. Fog is defined as cloud which reduces visibility to less than 1 km, whereas mist is that which reduces visibility to less than 2 km. Fog forms when the difference (Δ) between temperature and dew-point are 3 °C, or less, especially around rivers. (Courtesy of Wikipedia) (more…)
