What are foreign languages useful for?
Learning a new language is a huge neurological effort. Actually, this not only enhances our brain, but also our social skills and chances of cultural exchange. Living abroad is an unforgettable experience and studying a second language expands our horizons towards the purpose of growth.
Subject: Study Skills
Do you follow any studying method for your different school subjects?
Yes, I know a social sciences method and another one for exact sciences. We call them THROPA (theory, route page, organization, practice and auto-evaluation) and ELAPIMECA (exploration, active reading, information processing, comprehensive memory and auto-evaluation) because of their spanish initials.
Do you believe every human being has a special, unique meaning in life?
I believe the answer to this question is something very difficult to ascertain at such a young age. However, meaning is our engine, as long as we find meaning in our daily-tasks, we will be motivated to follow our dreams. Whereas, if we feel that what we are doing has no sense or no purpose, we´ll keep living automatically, and that´s when life gets boring.
