Student life Home > Student life > International students All over the world students are changing countries for their university studies. They don’t all have the same reasons for going or for choosing a particular place to study. They may choose a university because of its interesting courses or perhaps because they like the country and its language. Some students go overseas because they love travel. Whatever the reason, thousands of students each year make their dreams of a university education come true. Starting at any university is a major step in life. Speakers of English as a Second Language This content has been taken from Study Skills for Speakers of English as a Second Language, by Marilyn Lewis and Hayo Reinders. Based on interviews with international students and their teachers, this book offers straightforward advice on academic topics such as language use, as well as social topics and the culture of British universities.

Encephalization Encephalization is defined as the amount of brain mass related to an animal's total body mass. Quantifying an animal's encephalization has been argued to be directly related to that animal's level of intelligence. Aristotle wrote in 335 B.C. "Of all the animals, man has the brain largest in proportion to his size More encephalized species tend to have longer spinal shock duration. Encephalization may also refer to the tendency for a species toward larger brains through evolutionary time. Encephalization quotient[edit] In Snell's equation of simple allometry[6] "E" is the weight of the brain, "C" is the cephalization factor and "S" is body weight and "r" is the exponential constant. The "Encephalization Quotient" (EQ) is the ratio of "C" over the expected value for "C" of an animal of given weight "S".[7] This measurement of approximate intelligence works best on mammals because of accuracy rather than other phyla of animalia. Evolution of the EQ[edit] See also[edit] References[edit]

Improving your motivation for learning English © Tomasz P. Szynalski, In this article, we share our techniques for improving your motivation for learning English as a foreign language.

Schule Interaktiv PISA. Diese Abkürzung – aufgelöst bedeutet sie „Programme for International Student Assessment“ - steht inzwischen fast synonym für die Schwächen des deutschen Schulsystems. Vor allem der Bildungsstand in Mathematik und Naturwissenschaften lässt laut PISA-Studie immer noch zu wünschen übrig, auch wenn Verbesserungen erkennbar sind. Die Deutsche Telekom Stiftung hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, in den Grund- und weiterführenden Schulen mehr Interesse für Inhalte aus Mathematik, Informatik, Naturwissenschaften und Technik zu wecken und dazu auch schulisches und außerschulisches Lernen miteinander zu verbinden. So sollen möglichst allen Kindern und Jugendlichen die MINT-Kompetenzen vermittelt werden, die für einen weiteren erfolgreichen Bildungsweg erforderlich sind. Die frühe Auseinandersetzung mit einem Studien- und Berufsziel ist uns daher in diesem Handlungsfeld ein besonderes Anliegen.

Human brain The human brain has the same general structure as the brains of other mammals, but has a more developed cortex than any other. Large animals such as whales and elephants have larger brains in absolute terms, but when measured using the encephalization quotient which compensates for body size, the human brain is almost twice as large as the brain of the bottlenose dolphin, and three times as large as the brain of a chimpanzee. Much of the expansion comes from the part of the brain called the cerebral cortex, especially the frontal lobes, which are associated with executive functions such as self-control, planning, reasoning, and abstract thought. The portion of the cerebral cortex devoted to vision is also greatly enlarged in humans. The human cerebral cortex is a thick layer of neural tissue that covers most of the brain. Scientifically, the techniques that are used to study the human brain differ in important ways from those that are used to study the brains of other mammals.

Freewriting Freewriting ist eine Methode des Kreativen Schreibens, bei der der Bewusstseinsstrom des Schreibenden zu Papier gebracht wird, ohne ihn zu reflektieren, zu bewerten oder nach geeigneten Formulierungen zu suchen. Dabei entstehen Sätze, Satzfragmente und einzelne Wörter. Die Methode wird in Schreibkursen häufig verwendet, um Schreibblockaden abzubauen und in den Schreibfluss zu kommen. Freewriting wurde unter dieser Bezeichnung in den 1960er Jahren von Ken Macrorie eingeführt. Methode[Bearbeiten] Varianten[Bearbeiten] Siehe auch[Bearbeiten] Kreativitätstechnik-Methoden

The Superego – Breaking Free Of A False God Breaking free of the superego is absolutely essential for all of us who want to align with wellbeing, joy, love and freedom. Do you know how much of your life force and freedom to move forward is being subconsciously squelched by an internalized "parent"? We can be fooled into thinking that this voice is coming from God / Creator, but it is actually a voice we've made into a false god. This inner voice usually instills fear in us as we venture out of our comfort zones, when we are guided to expand beyond our current view of “reality.” It is shocking to realize that we may be unconsciously held back by this false god – and the fear it uses to control us – more than any other thing! We need to bring awareness to this part of our psyche so that it isn’t running the show. What Is The Superego? Breaking free of this false god requires that we become conscious of it. Below are some examples of situations that could have evoked negative feedback from our parents when we were children.
