On June 20, we had the longest day of the year thanks to the June solstice, sometimes referred to as the summer solstice. On the southern hemisphere it is known as the winter solstice and is the shortest day of the year. A fact about the June solstice is that it occurs at the same time all over the world, and it can happen anytime between June 20 ‘ June 22 although June 22 is very rare. According to astronomers and scientists the June solstice marks the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of winter in the Southern Hemisphere. With summer in full swing now, American Language Services are preparing for all the up and coming projects.
