About the event

We'll explore how the languages we speak shape our brain and mind. 

Discover which parts of our brain are responsible for language processing and how different languages activate unique neural pathways. We'll also delve into intriguing questions like: Would you recognize the color blue if it didn't have a name? How much do the names of things shape our perception, understanding and even brain chemistry. 

Additionally, find out how people who speak languages with gendered nouns have their brains wired differently than those who speak languages without gender distinctions. This is perfect for curious minds who love languages and want to explore the science behind how they influence our brain

This workshop is aimed at curious minds 10+
