1. What is "mind mapping"?
A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid in study, organization, problem solving, decision making, and writing. Thus, mind mapping is applied to different fields.
2. What are prepositions and when we use them?
Prepositions are words that mainly specify place, direction, time, etc. Besides time and place, intransitive verbs also need preposition while you want to put something right after them, such as suffer from serious disease and prevent myself from hurt.
