A hidden treasure: The Mediterranean diet

The Mediterranean diet is not only a set of food recommendations but also a way of life. This diet refers to a millenary culture tradition based on homemade food and food as a pretext for dialogue. In this lifestyle ingredients, techniques and recipes are combined with a physically active life favoured by the goodness of the climate. It is a way of life in which it is shared and celebrater around a table, where local and seasonal ingredients have prominence, where ingredients of plant origin abound and those from the animal are anecdotal. Recipes are used that have been passed from generation to generation and whose variants are found in the different countries of the region, each adapted to local resources. You could say that Mediterranean food is the antithesis of fast food. Even in Italy, a movement called “slow food” was born that claims this other form of food.

Palma de Mallorca Cathedral Beach

My Erasmus in Palma de Mallorca

Hi, it’s Sam again! Today I’m going to tell you about my Erasmus experience that I had two years ago.

During my university studies, I had the opportunity to study abroad as part of the Erasmus program. Studying english philology at the time, I wanted to go to a Spanish speaking country since it was the language I wanted to work on the most despite what I was studying. And one of the universities that offered such courses in Spain and that was a partner of my university was the UIB, la Universitat de las Illes Baleares. So, after sorting the different paperwork, I was off to Palma de Mallorca to live abroad for the first time.

why should children learn a second language

5 reasons for children to learn a foreign language

As Hola People, we aware of how is important for children to learn a second language like adults. And, we are willing to tell you 5 reasons for children to learn a foreign language.

Let’s begin!

 

1- For speaking to more people Steps to learn a foreign language

Do you know how many languages are spoken in the world? And, how many people can you communicate with if you learn how to speak one more language? Let me tell you, Spanish gets you to speak approximately 420 million people. Spanish is the third most spoken language in the world.

When you learn a foreign language as a child or teach a second language to your children and they will have a whole life to get advantages of it. To have more career opportunities, to understand deep insight about how others see the world, to have more fun when you travel, to have varied friendships and so on.

foreign languages for children2- It’s easier to learn for children

Years ago people believed that learning a second language would confuse a child. Now, research proves that children who speak a second language perform better than non-bilingual students, in standardized tests.

Let’s imagine, you and your child start to learn Spanish at the same time. Do you know who will speak better after a year? Definitely, the answer is your child. And, many researchers believe that learning a foreign language before the puberty and even better earlier it allows children to speak more fluently, almost like native speakers because their brain is as “sponges” for learning a language. Also, they speak beyond biases. They don’t care if they make a mistake about grammar, vocabulary. That makes them speak easier and faster.

Also, there’s much less complex information to digest for children.  Kids usually only learn to associate words with their meanings. But in adulthood, we make it more difficult to learn a second language.
