There are so many weird rules, unfamiliar words and pronunciation problems that most of the time you believe that you’ll never learn anything. It is easy to feel discouraged and to give up. But, the truth is that you are catching up faster than you believe and soon you will manage to master it and become a real expert.

Not only does learning languages have ability to transform social aspects of your life, but it can also affect your brain. The How learning languages affects our brain? Infographic showcases the consequences of learning a language and the pretty epic impact it has on your brain! We need to make mental fitness a huge part of our everyday routine. Learning new languages is both a fun and challenging way to give our brains the workout they crave. According to the infographic higher language skills are linked to growth in the hippocampus and areas of the cerebral cortex, where we process memory, thought and action. The increased size is associated with better memory and sharp thinking in old age. Apart from benefiting your brain, language also changes the way you think. For example, there are more terms for light blue and dark blue in Japanese than in English. This means that Japanese speakers can distinguish between multiple shades of blue, as compared to English speakers. Have a look and leave your comments below.

Learn to think like a scientist

Even if the scope of your activities is far from a science, the habit of scientifically thinking will bring you a great benefit because you will learn how to solve various problems (work, family, household, and many others) more efficiently and faster.

It is worth learning the scientific way of thinking and adopt its habits, because you will be able to master a creative approach to solving your problems. You will learn how to generate original ideas. We will also consider how to develop the habits of scientists and implement them in your thinking, to change lives.

Imagining an Internet without neutrality

Imagining an Internet without neutrality The Internet is the world’s biggest town square, shopping mall, library and university. Whether you want to share ideas or learn from others, you can do it online. No matter what you are interested in, the Internet is the perfect place to look to connect with others who share similar passions. The reason the Internet is such a great place to connect with people and share ideas is the concept of Net Neutrality. You, as a content creator, have the freedom to upload whatever you want. Internet Service Providers can’t dictate what you do or say, and are not held responsible for the content that their users post. As this infographic, produced by CWCS, shows, however, the freedom of the Internet is under threat. Across the globe, more and more countries are placing restrictions on what people can see, say and do online. In the USA, the Federal Communications Commission tried to establish rules that would protect Net Neutrality, but their proposals were fought by phone and cable companies, who want to regulate the Internet in their own ways. Between profit-driven ISPs, and governments that want to restrict access to content that they deem dangerous or subversive, the very thing that makes the Internet so great is now under threat.
