Hi Studentka,

“long-running” means that something has been happening for a long time. For example, the TV show The Simpsons started in 1989, so we can call that a “long-running TV show” as it has been on air for 26 years.

“heritage” means something that get by birth, that has been passed down from previous generations. You often hear the word used in the phrase “cultural heritage”, as our culture is passed down from our parents and grandparents.

I hope that explains things!

Hi M. Fawzy,

Thanks for the great question!

“Colonization” describes the process where one larger nation sets up a smaller, remote country as a state under it’s power. For example, the U.S. used to be a colony of the British Empire.

A “controversy” is a topic where a lot of people to disagree.

Thank you!
