All those countries you've never been to, all those words that sound familiar though the meaning lies hidden, all the people you wish you'd met... How can we bring it all together?
This was our incentive, as language and culture professionals and enthusiasts, in creating a crowd-sourced book like no other, and show you the world... between the lines.
Natives from fifty countries give you a rich account of what it means to be a part of life in their homeland: you'll find out what events shook their lives, and what songs kids sing in the streets, not to mention a plethora of sayings and words to make you sound like a local.
All profits go straight to Trad Online's favourite NGO, Planete Urgence, whose aim is to help people in poor areas by organising local actions, such as planting trees. Please visit their website for more details: http://planete-urgence.org
Pop on over to our book blog, http://tradonline-books.com/, where you can find interviews and pictures from our contributors, and more material we just couldn't fit into the book, that you'd enjoy anyway!
