Education

    Sugata Mitra, who is a distinguished scholar, showed us a research project about how to acquire knowledge using computers, but without attending a local school. As for me, it’s his firm conviction that having lessons in the group, where children try to keep up with each other, will cause that children will be a know-all  and have a mental agility at an early age. Besides, I take the view that it's more effectively when children read out loud and improve their abilities with practice.
    Sir Ken Robinson gave a lecture on how it is important that the teachers help a gifted child to develop. Bear in mind that people are different, so the education can show a marked improvement if children will be able to develop their creativity. We should grasp the importance of the presence of teachers in schools, so I take the view that teachers should get down to encouraging children to make a progress.
    I honestly think that we need more attention to creativity. It's common knowledge that many of them are the leading authorities in the field of sport or art. Moreover, carry out a research, cooperate with each other and improve with practice. To sum up the future is yours to create, so wish that every teacher will encourage and engage to have a thirst for knowledge.

Feelings. Emotions. Body Language

   Each of us has different emotions and feelings in every situation. Mostly, it depends on which news it is (pleasant or not). Speaking about my friends, they are very inspired, cheerful and enthusiastic people, but when they have a lot to do, some of them are confused, anxious and try not to bottle up his/her emotions.
   If my friend feels happy, she will try to wear her heart on her sleeve and have a burst of energy. Consequently she has a strong sense of purpose and I believe that it teachers her to keep a cool head in unpleasant moments. Besides, every time my friends could eat a horse and it always made my day. Finally, none of them ever complain to me about his/her life and doesn’t fill me with dread. They just try to heave a sigh of relief and find a solution.
   To sum up it’s not a great idea to suppress our feelings and increase your own stress levels, because we live in the world of emotions and we should be cool, calm and collected.


   Speaking about music, I really like to listen to music, because it makes me inspired and after that I have a burst of energy. When I saw this video I understood that we shouldn’t complain to anybody about our life or groan that pain, but we should jump to conclusions that to keep a cool head in any situation is a great idea. Finally, clench your fists and move boldly forward.

Communication






Greek And Latin Roots in English
    Speaking about the learning foreign languages, remember that all words are formed with ancient languages such as Latin and Greek. Personally I think that our generation should be familiar with Latin and Greek, because it helps you to cope with other languages in easy way and deepen your knowledge.
    Firstly, in any science when you make description of word, you speak in that way: “From Latin it means…”. So this applies to all mankind and everyone who works in the field of geography or biology, psychology or philology. Secondly, if you don’t know the meaning, you can draw an analogy with other words by knowing Latin or Greek.
    To sum up, you should remember about the benefit of knowing ancient languages. Finally, I’m sure that the credibility of this information is high.

   As for me, you must start with vocabulary tools to keep your mind on words in the context, meanings of the words and how memorize it, what is really important to speak fluently. You should choose a method of using tools to improve your skills. In my case, I chosen three vocabulary tools such a Fraze.it, Snappywords and Quizlet. It’s effective, when you create flashcards by yourself, then you concentrate the mind on memorizing these words and finally make progress in your English.
   Furthermore, it’s appropriate to get better your English using vocabulary building tools and games. I recommend you Lingro and Rewordify, because then you will read the texts with remarkable ease. Finally, I wish you good luck and make the most of works during the day. I’m sure that your vocabulary will expand and you’ll  be motivated about your result.

Dictionary Daze!

   It is realy important to be able to use the dictionary correctly and know your dictionary during making progress in your study. First of all, chose the dictionary which is relevant to your knowledge, for instance prescriptive or descriptive, bilingual or monolingual. Also don’t forget that it is more useful to have the paper dictionary than to look a word up in the electronic dictionary. Besides, don’t use the dictionary all time, because It’s better to make yourself understood or to guess the meaning of word. Finally, you should be aware of using dictionary effectively. Before you start to work with dictionary, understand from the context what part of speech the word is. It is appropriate to make sentences with words and learn the collocations what is part and parcel to improve your language skills. Because you know that not all words can be translated. So be careful and make the notes of using  words.  But remember that dictionary is for checking words out but not for learning new words.   Remember that your vocabulary expands when you work with the dictionary not regularly but effectively.   Chose a method for using dictionary, which help you to make your speech fluent. Concentrate the mind on grammar, syntax, vocabulary and conversation skills.
