So choose yourself: being multilingual or not?

Language is a vital part of human connection. Although all species have their ways of communicating, humans are the only ones that have mastered cognitive language communication. Actually, language allows us to share our ideas, thoughts, and feelings with others. There are some benefits of learning a second language. Learning a language strengthens the area of the brain which is responsible for memory, speech and sensory perception. Bilingual people are better at retaining lists, sequences, names and directions. They are also more creative, perceptive and can concentrate for longer.

Digital education system

In the Year “Happy Youth with Arkadag Serdar”, the improvement of the national scientific and education systems and the upbringing of scientifically-educated, highly qualified personalities for the present and future development of our life in line with the best international practices continue through the efforts of our esteemed President Serdar Berdimuhamedov. Today Turkmen young people study, learn foreign languages and different subjects, enrich their knowledge and conduct research at the modern universities and institutes equipped with smart high technologies. We have modern and advanced opportunities to improve the scientific and education systems of our country. Nowadays a digital education system or digital learning has the main place in the world. Digital education is the ingenious use of digital technologies and tools throughout teaching and learning and is frequently known as Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) or digital learning. Digital learning is facilitated by technology that offers students some control over place, time, pace and path. Digital learning is replacing traditional educational procedures more and more each day.
