February 23rd 303: Great Persecution begins

On this day in 303, the Roman Emperor Diocletian began the systematic persecution of Christians in the Roman Empire. It was this day that Diocletian ordered the total destruction of the new Christian church in Nicomedia, demanding the building and its scriptures to be burned and its treasures seized. The following day Diocletian issued an ‘Edict Against the Christians’; the persecution of Christians had begun. Christians had been targeted throughout the history of the empire, but violence was at its fiercest between 303 and 313. The campaign did not end with Diocletian’s retirement in 305, as his successors continued what he had begun (though to varying degrees of intensity). The persecution saw the execution of Christians, the rescinding of their legal rights and the requirement that they embrace traditional Roman polytheistic religion. The persecution is generally considered to have ended with the 313 Edict of Milan issued by the converted Christian Emperor Constantine.

¡Hola amigos de México!

Como muchos ya sabes estuve viviendo en Munich, Alemania por dos meses y estuve aprendiendo el idioma, hasta ahorita, ha sido la mejor experiencia de mi vida. 

Conocí a personas de todo el mundo, conocí sus culturas, sus idiomas, sus formas de ver las cosas, entre muchas cosas más.

Yo me fui con EF Education First, que es una compañía con escuelas alrededor del mundo en donde ahí practicas el idioma local, y en tu tiempo libre, puedes conocer la ciudad y sus alrededores. EF tiene más de 50 años, y en mi experiencia, no hay otra igual a ella. 

Estos son los lugares a donde podrías ir a practicar otro idioma:

En total formando más de 35 destinos en estos países.
