Our Changing World
Our latest resources look at the changing world we live in: have you ever considered that one day a robot might look after you in your old age? The latest robots from Japan include one that will help elderly people who live alone '" and have no one to talk to," said Kazuya Kitamura,"...Robots don't mind listening to the same stories over and over again ."' Another is designed to keep children happy while their parents are at work. Read more about what we can all look forward to in our Pre-Intermediate Instant Lesson ' Robots '.

And if you're worried about the amount of time you or someone you know spends on the Internet, our Intermediate Instant Lesson ' Computers Harm Kids ' can help to inform you about the dangers. The lesson discusses excessive use and says what happens to people who spend too much time playing computer games.  

On a positive note we look at a new biking scheme that has been introduced to London withfree bikes being offered around the city center in our Upper Intermediate Lesson 'On Your Bike'.  

Best wishes,
The English To Go Team

This Month's Point of Interest

This month's Point of Interest comes from the Intermediate Instant Lesson " Computers Harm Kids":
"Some spend more than 10 hours a day, they are really problematic users and they show signs and symptoms of addictive behavior ... browsing the Internet, playing games," said Lam, co-author of the paper which was published on Tuesday in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine.

"They can't get their minds off the Internet, they feel agitated if they don't get back on after a short period of being away," the psychologist at Sydney's University of Notre Dame's School of Medicine said in a telephone interview.

"They don't want to see friends, don't want to join family gatherings, don't want to spend time with parents or siblings."

The study involved 1,041 teenagers aged between 13 and 18 years in China's southern Guangzhou city who were free of depression at the start of the investigation.

Nine months later, 84 of them were assessed as suffering from depression and those who were on the Internet excessively were one-and-a-half times more vulnerable than moderate users.

"Results suggested that young people who are initially free of mental health problems but use the Internet pathologically could
develop depression as a consequence.'
Thomson Reuters 2010
