1) Read the article about different types of intelligence. Write the name of the appropriate intelligence next to famous European and American people:

David Beckham: soccer player

Albert Einstein: physicist

William Shakespeare: writer

Jane Goodall: primatologist

Ludwig van Beethoven: composer

Frank Lloyd Wright: architect

Anne Frank: diarist

Rev. Martin Luther King: spiritual leader

It’s not “how clever are you?”, it’s “how are you clever?”

This week’s article looks at a great theory and gives you the chance to find your own talents and what you could study. Read on….

In 1983, Dr. Howard Gardner first said that there is more than one way to be intelligent. Dr. Gardner says that we all have a lot of different intelligences – multiple intelligences. Read on and find out what those intelligences are.

Are you good at learning languages? Do you love to read and write? If the answer is “yes” to these two questions, you have high linguistic intelligence; the ability to use language.

What about numbers? Are you quick at doing sums? If so, you probably have high logical-mathematical intelligence – the talent for understanding logic and for using numbers.

Do you see things in your head? No, you’re not crazy, but you probably do have high spatial intelligence. You are probably good at reading maps and understanding diagrams. You probably also remember things using images, colours and pictures.

How are you on the dance floor? Are you good at sports and dancing? Kinesthetic intelligence is the talent for using your body well to move or to show emotion.

Do you sing in the shower? Play any musical instruments? Yes? You probably have high musical intelligence – the ability to hear, recognize and remember music.

Do you love working in teams? Do you have a lot of friends? You probably have high interpersonal intelligence. This is the talent for understanding other peoples’ thoughts and feelings.

Do you keep a diary? Do you think about your own character and actions a lot? You may have high intrapersonal intelligence. This means you are good at understanding yourself and are self-aware.

“To be or not to be” – this is the question for those with high existernal intelligence: this is about being able to understand things that are spiritual and things that relate to the meaning of life and death.

And finally: Do you like to spend time with nature? Do you have pets? Do you like to grow plants? If so, you probably have high naturalistic intelligence – the talent for understanding how natural things in the world work.

So, how are YOU intelligent? We hope this article has helped you to find it out.

2) Discuss in groups: What type of intelligence do you have?

1) Look at the title of the text you are going to read, work in pairs and answer the questions:

Why do you think that being bilingual is probably good for the brain?

How do you think scientists discovered this?

What are the advantages of being bilingual?
