Playing Chess Help Develop Mental Skills
Chess is one of the famous games in the world. Chess is a two-player strategy board game played on a chessboard, a checkered game board with 64 squares arranged in an eight-by-eight grid. Chess is played by millions of people worldwide.
Chess players from different countries compete every year winning big prizes from the tournament. However, anyone can learn and play cheese with someone. In some Asian countries, like Philippines, chess is being played by people of all ages. Along the street, you will see players playing chess.. They are surrounded with people who are watching their ‘moves’.
Playing chess is not just for amusement, we can actually relate to basically anything. The game may not sound interesting to you and will not make you happy person. but, you may find it useful when you learned to play..
Does playing chess really help develop transferable skills that can be used outside of the 64 squares? Great claims have been made for chess as an educational tool in more recent times but does anyone know of any peer-reviewed studies which have shown any measurable effect?
Among other things, I have read claims that chess can:
? improve concentration
? develop logical reasoning
? improve planning skills
? develop better calculating skills
? improve memory
? help improve attention span and develop patience
If this is all true. I recommend that you should relatively learn how to play chess. You will able to learn different strategies not only related with chess but those that areuseful in human life. It also teaches you about logic.
When I was a child my father taught me how to play chess. Everyone in the family know this game except for my mum who was always busy doing her lesson plan. She doesn’t enjoy, she doesn’t watch either. Though, I am not good at chess I could say that chess has countless benefits. It should be exercised in all schools. There is no better sport for developing ones mind. Chess is incredibly helpful for children to develop their mental skill and improve their mental ability.
