Hey. Some time ago I realised a few new things on teachers and tutors prophiles. It seems that now they can do al few new interresting things like for example adding a vocabulary and phrases lists which is helpful. Moreover now we can see almost all their activity on the website which can be helpful in choosing the best teacher or tutor for you. Another one interresting thing is that now teachers and tutors can see that you visited their prophiles. I think that it's really good change because it can make the contact between them and their potential students much easier and faster. The problem is that actually I can't guess how it exactly works. When actually they can see that I visited their prophiles? What exactly should I do if I want to be realised by them? :-)

#RisingBilingualStar Children who learn another language before age five use the same part of the brain to acquire that second language that they use to learn their mother tongue. Younger learners are also uninhibited by the fear of making mistakes, which is sometimes an obstacle for older beginners.. Research also shows that learning a second language boosts problem-solving, critical-thinking, and listening skills, in addition to improving memory, concentration, and the ability to multitask. Children proficient in other languages also show signs of enhanced creativity and mental flexibility.

Quando aprende uma segunda língua é uma sensação fantástico. Para falar com pessoas usando um outra lingua é incrível, particularmente quando nativos do país estão surpreendidos com o teu nível da língua!!!

I've been teaching English to my lil buddy since he started to learn his first Portuguese words (our native language). He's 4 years old now and talks in English almost as good as in Portuguese. Now I've put him to take Mandarin classes once a week and starting to study Mandarin myself again, so that we can learn and have fun together. It's been an outstanding experience! #RisingBilingualStar
