Solving childhood obesity

Children these days are suffering from obesity. The first cause of obesity is junk food. Mostly children eat burgers, pizzas and noodles. These types of food are easily available to them in school. Children love to buy chips, chocolate and ice cream for lunch. Moreover, parents are working and don't have time to cook at home. Parents often buy dinner for their children instead of cooking food at home. This problem can be solved by teaching children to cook healthy food for themselves and banning junk food from schools.
The second cause of obesity is technology. Children spend most of their time watching television or playing video games on computer. This technology makes them lazy. Parents can take their children to parks for playing with friends. Furthermore, schools can add sports in their courses.
Finally, the main causes of obesity are unhealthy eating and not enough physical activities.

Language learners

For the vast majority of language learners, myself included, we learn another language so that we can speak it. As I see it, we are not learning it so we can read the newspapers, we are not learning so that we can write letters to people. I'm absolutely convinces that we may do bot of these, and enjoy them as activities; but I've no doubt that they are some of the reasons for our learning. As well as we want to speak; I've always felt that we want to be in conversations in which we both understand and are understood.
To me, young children will easily learn a foreign language better compared to adolescents. Furthermore, it could be easy for them to practice and enhance the usage when they become older.
