Education: What is it?

Education: what is it?

Well, it´s a word which uses all of the 5 English vowels. And, phonetically speaking,  it looks like this: /ɛdjʊˈkeɪʃ(ə)n/. In addition, it´s a word that politicians repeat to infinity and beyond during an election campaign.  Finally, it´s something that affects all of us.

OK Janette, but what does it mean?

Well, I have my opinions, but I think this guy has something more interesting to say than me.  If you check out this video, you will improve your English listening and comprehension skills, learn new vocabulary, and you will definitely think. Perfect; bring on the brain shake!

  1. Very interesting the video, but i would like to add something, other point of view about the concept “Education”: what’s the point? I believe that people life have improved because of having knowledges, they can chose. And furthermore, Education can break the poverty circle in the poor countries.

  2. I have just seen the video, I didn`t understand well so I will try again later.
    It seems very interesting.

  3. In theory, I completely agree, education is definitely the key to improving society, and reducing inequality and social injustice
