The future is what will happen in the time after the present. The future has been a major subject of philosophy, religion, and science for thousands of years. Future studies or ‘futurology’ is the science and practice of discussing the likelihood of future events and trends. Futures studies seeks to understand what is likely to continue and what is likely to change. A key part of this process is understanding the potential future impact of decisions made by individuals, organisations and governments. Leaders use results of such work to assist in decision-making.

Disability is the consequence of an impairment that may be physical, cognitive, mental, sensory, emotional, developmental, or some combination of these.

This is the preparation material for an English conversation lesson about knowledge. Knowledge is the understading of a topic or subject. It can be theoretical knowledge, like the knowledge we get from reading a book, or it can be practical knowledge, which we get from doing and practicing things. Some people think knowledge and wisdom are the same, but others say that a person with knowledge can be without wisdom. Wisdom is the ability to make correct judgents and decisions.
This is the preparation material for an English conversation lesson about books, literature and reading. Literature is the art of written work and means “things made from letters”. There are two main forms – fiction (text based on imagination) and non-fiction (text based on factual information). A love of reading can reduce stress, encourage positive thinking and improve your creativity and imagination. Nowadays, going to a library to read or borrow a book has become a rare event because many people prefer to use the internet to find information or they download an ebook instead.
