    Power of Language

    The power of language builds communities that can connect and understand each other. In addition, language forms an aspect of one’s identity. Language becomes more powerful when it's understood by a wider community and the power of the language...

    • Dear Isabella. I am fascinated with your post “Power Of Language” because it’s one way how we can communicate with others. Also, I find I interesting how others speak you can tell where they are from. One sentence that stands out to me is “The community develops a connection through the language of ideas shared by one another.” When you can speak any language that is not English with others you can develop a friendship or have a conversation with others. Also when you speak different languages you can connect with so many people and not just one community. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to what you write next because I thought it was very interesting.

    • I really liked your writing and how you emphasized the importance that language and how it affects everyone. I like when you said “The language used within a society reflects aspects of one’s identity.” I think that this is very accurate and again highlights what language can do for us. I think that it’s important to view language as beauty and powerful instead of looking down upon how some people speak differently. When speaking languages other than your first, it helps you embrace the culture around you and give you a different perspective on the lives of those native speakers. Language is a powerful tool that should be appreciated.

    Catherine, I like how you included “All six words can be taken with a completely different tone of voice when read as a text” because language over text can easily be misinterpreted and unclear. In addition, I like how you related it the mental aspect it has on people and connected it to the effect it has on relationships. Great writing!

I liked your point that the audie…Read More

  • Isabella commented on the post, Trump has Ruined Empathy

    “This article talks about how we empathise with other people and how its not having been through what they have but rather understanding and trying to be with them.” I really liked this part of your post. I agree that in order to empathize with other people we have to understand from their perspective and attempt to see the circumstances in the…Read More
