Modern Students: Gifted Children vs Quick Learners

Зображення
Evening! You know, in order to keep up with LM course, today I have a task that refers to learning process.  Some of you could think it’s a kind of tedious task but not at all. We often complain about our learning system and the quality of education. But the thing is that we just complain, we don’t cover a lot of ground. Recently I’ve watched videos where speakers showed the considerable initiative about changes in modern education.
I honestly think that Sugata Mitra, the first speaker, is an eager beaver since his research makes others put their thinking cap on. It’s a widespread belief that nowadays educational process is broken. However, the speaker underlines that it actually isn’t. Our education is a compulsory process where instructors from the old school make students hit the booksto obtain a diploma. We don’t have to make learning process happen; we have to let it happen by itself. Sugata demonstrated that kids have a proven ability of self-study and it shows a marked improveme…

Hi again, my dearest friends! The spring has finally come and the feelings are the name of the game for youth now. Hundreds of people fall for other people. However, there are many of them who bring the relationships to an end. I'd like to provide you with one of many such classic stories. 
So, the couple had a romantic trip to Paris.
Life is inpredictable and after few years our characters met again.
 The next day at the cafe:
It's a pity we often don't appreciate the nearest and dearest people and loose touch with them. I wish you to have just the best relationships with people who are a kind of your type:)

Hey guys!  Have you ever thought about different methods of comunication we could add to speech? One of these methods is usage of body language, particularly gestures, postures, facial expressions, and so forth. You know, I looked through my friends' pics and noticed that they wear their heart on their sleeve:D I'm sure these photos will make you be in high spirits. 









Hope I cheered you up) Now, one more thing I'd like to share is a video. I've watched it when I had a French class. It's all about life without borders, about the way of understanding each other without words. To me, it's the perfect society and perfect life. Have a look at those cheerful,contented, enthusiastic people and you'll understand what I'm talking about. Don't jump to conclusions from the very beginning, watch it till the end:) So, I urge you to watch this video and get inspired:)

Dear Jack,      How do you do? Hope everything’s OK. I’m sorry I haven’t written for a long time but I concentrated my mind on studying. You know, it takes the time. I’d like to know whether you make progress in learning English or are out of practice. I’d like to help you keep up with helpful updated recourses that will give you an immense asset in building your vocabulary.       The thing is that I used traditional dictionaries but recently I’ve found an alternative.  Instead of spending long hours looking for appropriate information related to a word,I adopted a method of using flashcards.

Here’s the link to this wonderful source that providemnemonic techniques: https://quizlet.com/191645717/online-tools-flash-cards/       I can suggest that you get advantage of Macmillan Dictionary, since I find it quite effective. It gives a wide range of options: definitions, recent entries, related words, games and many more items. …

Types of Dictionaries. Using dictionaries effectively.

Hi there! Since I’m a language learner, I’ll have to know the lexicology like the back of my hand. Therefore, the viable option for expanding our vocabulary is using the dictionary. Today I’d like to point out the most effective ways to do this.
ØFirst and foremost you should know your dictionary. If you know the author, the type of your dictionary etc, it won’t take a lot of time to look a word up.

ØAdditionally, you can get the hang of prefixes or give making a sentence of random words a try. ØThere are monolingual and bilingual dictionaries. They help you build your confidence when you use both. However, it…
