Answer:

After leaving a classroom, it is really important to recall the material you remember learning in class moving the material to the working memory to the short term memory in a range of environments. The quote Rome wasn't built in a day is very true when it comes to learning new material because of the importance of repeating and readdressing new material to wire this material in your brain. A balance between studying hard, testing yourself, and leaving time for your brain to process the material helps us retain what we have learned. Learning how to learn will change your life...

Question:

How does the way we move our mouths affect the way we speak in another language?

Answer:

Each language has different mouth movements based on the mother language a person speaks. Our learned movement from a child can affect the pronunciation of words students learn in a second language. Mouth movements when we are speaking another language that can be vital in pronunciation and the ability to be understood in another language, especially when sounds are not typically in that person's vocabulary. Thus, its important to not only learn what to speak but how to speak it.

Answer:

It is amazing how many things we can learn through observation and the presence of these materials Archaeological material is a very strong indicator of what has happened in the past. Archaeological material can range from biological remains such as plants, animals, and human remains to archaeological materials like ceramics, metals, and glass. These materials can help us reconstruct environments, understand populations, down to genetic inheritance and disposition, to the technology people were able to create. These materials can tell us the association with other cultures, including trade, and interconnectivity around the world. Materials can tell us about accessibility, tradition, and culture.
