Nature granted us forty-three facial muscles for us to be able to express the full range of emotions. These emotions may stay alive for just a split second, or for several minutes, with negative emotions lasting longer than positive ones. Emotions tell the people around us about what we feel and what mood we are in; they can even help us in difficult moments. Normally, we don't have to try 'deciphering' emotions of those whom we talk to, as we easily guess the mood of our friends, relatives and literally everyone around us. But will we be able to figure out what a person of another race, language and culture feels? Or do the emotions speak different languages, just like people do?
