"Every saint has a past, every sinner has a future"
I am an undergraduate student in Computer Science at the University of Colorado Boulder, and I am working as a research assistant in a human-centered computing lab. I taught myself several programming languages, and I work freelance to help friends build algorithms and websites. In the past, I worked as a mechanical engineer. I traveled to the United States from Taiwan to develop my future path, and I am enjoying the journey.
I'm software engineering research assistant for MindScribe and here's something I have learned.
Language is an identity, representing a store of society's culture. It's more than just a communication tool. As you speak a different language, you can realize its culture. We can have started building international values since early childhood to form children's wild imaginative world.
Well-designed reflective inquiry about their artifacts helps children think deeply and answer questions logically. Children's curiosity is huge, thus, we could support them to explore a different language.
Word is, since English has been an international language for decades, American people do not really try to learn a different language. However, there are people that actually want to learn another language, but they just don't have a chance. Our project could offer this opportunity to let them explore a new different language.
There are people exposed in bilingualism family, however, after children get to school, they become monolingual because most students/teachers speak the national language to each other. Our project can help them expand their ability to communicate in multiple languages.
