An Example of 21st Century Vocabulary

How many textbooks do you think include vocabulary words like this?

If you don’t speak either German or French, the vocabulary word is “homosexual couple” and the sample sentence says “The homosexual couple is going to adopt a child.” If only that were true in more than 2% of the world…

The next word is common-law couple. None of this married or single as the only options.

You rock, busuu.com! Equality for all!

    And this is exactly the kind of vocabulary that is very useful to understand a society and the current world!

    Textbooks are so outdated… I worked with French textbooks which still talked of “machine à écrire”. Seriously.
