I’m right and you’re not! This is what umpteen people think these days. They way we think, the way we live, the way we communicate is entirely perfect and if something is wrong, that is not our mistake. These days, we are so busy with work, college, children etc. that we don’t realize that other people may also be right and you also can be wrong. Even if that’s the case, we do not want to admit it.ng>

“People are dealing with the world through a map”, this is what the Neuro Linguistic Programming and Alfred Korzybski, developer of the theory of general semantics, have stated. This map contains all kinds of ideas, concepts, projects, opinions and values about life, about others and about the person itself and his capabilities.

One part of the map is developed by feeling, principles and social ideas. The other part of the map is created through our private experiences. So, this stands for that each one of us has created a map through different filters.

According to this statement above, it is impossible to find two peoples with the same map.

Day by day we experience something new. So, there are too many of them to keep it all in our map. Some highly educated scientists have told that we receive millions of bits of information every second and our conscious mind only retains 5 to 9 items at a time. It is unachievable for a human to process all the info, so we select and filter them.

The 2 masterminds who developed Neurolinguistic program or NLP (John Grinder and Richard Bandler), have told that there exist 3 phenomena that take place to separate out all this info in order to shape a map:

1. Deletion
2. Generalization
3. Distortion

For each human being, the deletion, distortion and generalization process are

The Filipino language or better known as Tagalog by most Filipinos has an interesting and intriguing history. Philippines’ early settlers mostly lived near a river that is why they call themselves -tagailog- (river dweller) and it is where the word was derived from. -Taga- (native) and -ilog- (river). There is a very little known history about the beginnings of the native language.

However, according to Dr. Robert Blust and Dr. David Zorc both are expert linguists, Tagalog existed along with other Philippine domestic dialects in other regions from Visayas and Mindanao. The first written record of Tagalog was found during 900 A.D and is now under the protection of Laguna Copperplate Inscription. However, the said record was not written solely in Tagalog. It also uses other related languages like Sanskrit, Malay and Javanese. Meanwhile, Doctrina Cristiana (Christian Doctrine) was the first known book that was written in Tagalog which has two versions, written in Baybayin and Latin alphabet. However, it was only based from the original version that was written in Spanish.

The Philippine language was greatly influenced by the Spanish occupation throughout the entire 333 years of power. Filipino has made some adaptations from Spanish words with an estimated 40% of Filipino words have a Spanish origin.

Filipino is a Tagalog-based language, which is under the Austronesian family – the world’s largest group of languages. Western and Central-Eastern are the two main division of Austronesian. The Filipino language along with Javanese, Malay and Indonesian belonged to the Western group. Actually, Filipino and Tagalog languages are similar in terms of grammar, spelling, vocabulary and pronunciation. They both refer to Philippines’ national language. However, to give formality and to avoid association to the ethnic group Tagalog, the language was officially named Filipino in 1987.

Trying to gain knowledge of a new language on your own can be daunting, particularly when you make a decision to learn a foreign language that has no similarities with your native tongue. Korean language as well as most Asian languages appears very exotic to most English speakers. However, to master a Korean alphabet you need only a few hours.

Korean alphabet called Hangeul was invented during the reign of King Sejong in 1446. This alphabet consist 14 basic consonants and 10 basic vowels. The shapes of the consonants are similar to the shape of the mouth made when the sound is pronounced. Since, letters of similar sounds have similar shapes memorizing and learning the alphabet is not difficult.

The 10 basic vowels found in Korean alphabet are jointed to create new vowels called Double Vowels. These vowels can be combined in a number of different ways, then again no more than two can create a new combination. Korean language has 11 double vowels, so adding the 10 basics we get number of total 21 vowels found in Korean.

On top of double vowels, you will discover double consonants in Korean. They are separated into two groups. Group one, when the consonants are the same, and group two when the consonants are different. Double consonants can be puzzling at first, yet there are rules that inform us which consonants can be paired with which and how to pronounce them.

Korean language because of the long history of cultural contact with China has adopted many Chinese words. The borrowed vocabulary is called loan words or Sino Korean words. But not only Chinese has had influence on Korean. Words form English and other Western languages were adapted. These words are called Orreaeo, meaning words from abroad. Articulation of those words has

The English Language originated from West Germany and came about in the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of England in around the 5th century. It then spread north into what is now known as south-east Scotland and medieval Northumbria.

The word English is derived from the name of the Angles. English words are also heavily influenced by Latin because historically Latin was spoken by the Christian church and the more civilised Europeans. The language developed further when the Vikings invaded in the 8th and 9th centuries.

The Norman Conquest during the 11th century is when the English language began to become infused with Norman-French. Vocabulary and spelling standards began to have a similar style to the Romanic languages which is now known as Middle English. Modern English began to emerge in the 15th century when a Vowel Shift which began in South England occurred.

English is a worldwide spoken language and is the leading language of international communication. It is a bridging language for many people as English is spoken as a second language by so many nations across the globe. English is the official language of the European Union and many countries in the Commonwealth.

Countries with the highest populations of native English speakers are, in descending order United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Nigeria, Ireland, South Africa, and New Zealand.

The English language is the third most popular native tongue in the world after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. There are about 375 million people speaking English as a first language. The popularity of English as a second language however, would probably make it the most spoken language in the world. Although some would argue Chinese is the most spoken language depending on whether you think Mandarin and Cantonese are separate languages or dialects.
