WONDER BRAIN
2 sides of the Brain
Left side is Logical & linear. Right side Creative & Global. When some one speaks, the left watches content of words and the right watches the Emotion with which it is spoken. It is natural when words are combined with pictures, colours, music & emotion then it is learnt faster.
