About 1828

First dictionary of the American Language!

Noah Webster, the Father of American Christian education, wrote the first American dictionary and established a system of rules to govern spelling, grammar, and reading. This master linguist understood the power of words, their definitions, and the need for precise word usage in communication to maintain independence. Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions.

This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies.

No other dictionary compares with the Webster's 1828 dictionary. The English language has changed again and again and in many instances has become corrupt. The American Dictionary of the English Language is based upon God's written word, for Noah Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions. This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies. From American History to literature, from science to the Word of God, this dictionary is a necessity. For homeschoolers as well as avid Bible students it is easy, fast, and sophisticated.

Barcelona Cooking Class with Marta: Catalan Paella Marta's Private Catalan Paella Cooking Classes Plaza Tetuan, Barcelona, Spain
Cooking with Marta. Paella Barcelona style. Today was a cooking class with Marta, on her balcony in the beautiful sunshine. We rode there on our bikes only 10 mins from home.
DINE WITH THE LOCALS: A CULINARY WORKSHOP IN PAELLA WITH MARTA Marta, a petite Barcelona native fluent in three languages, welcomes any and all into her home for the joyous culinary experience of paella. The Spanish dish often frightens many due to its overwhelming nature of ingredients, but Marta brings such an ease and patience to the dish. Guests have the option to help in the cooking process or just sit back and enjoy, but trust me, it is quite worth it to see how the dish comes together. While the food is fresh and bright, and Marta is delightful and vibrant, it is the experience as a whole that is unforgettable.
