She will be helping us start up our greenhouse in September.

Feeling compassion and pitying someone are two different things. You can feel compassion for someone and want to help them. Pitying means that you feel sorry for them and think them beneath you. To pity someone is to put them down. To feel compassion is to express humanity.

I think if we treated the disabled people as equals it would be much better because some of them do not like to be pitied much but there others who use their conditions for other selfish purposes,by feeling compassion form for them and helping them out would be great too......

Re: Research 2: Green

I actually perceive some of the shades of green differently. For example, I associate lighter tones of green with sickness and puke and hospitals. I associate darker tones of green with peace, harmony, and nature. I wonder if hospitals using the light green colour has had an influence on perceiving light green as anything but peaceful and soothing. Can society's general association of the tones of green change depending on our surroundings? It might be interesting to conduct a survey asking...

Interesting... It's definitely true that songs and music 'stick' better than spoken words. I'm sure we've all gotten songs stuck in our heads before. I know it's not directly related to your project, but I'll link to an article down below that expands more on the connections you've already made between music and memory. Cool project, Haleigh. http://ir.lib.uwo.ca/cgi/viewc...2&context=hucjlm

Re: Small update thing

I think that learning another language would be very fun, and helpful, but a lot of hard work. I think that it is crazy that a 17-year-old can speak 20 languages. I've been trying to learn spanish in school, but its not working very good. I learn the material, have the test on it, and then forget basically everything. I think that learning another language would be very hard, but would be amazing! Good luck!

Wow, learning Italian and Japanese. I am having a hard time just learning French. This is really cool, and I can't wait to see your findings. Are you going to compare the similarities, and differences between English, Italian, and French? Don't worry you are no the only procrastinator. Good Luck!

Juolin Lee (LFAS - Alumni) ·
That is a lot of languages!!! You go Haleigh! The only thing I'm worry about is that you might get the 3 different languages mixed up together. This happened to my mom when she learned French one year than Japanese for the next. Now she still remembers quite a few vocabulary from each language, but she often mix up the two of them and feel unsure about what word is in what language. As a native Mandarin Chinese speaker I will almost recommend you to save Mandarin for later. Because the...

Re: A Burn

Interesting burn, Evan. Remember that when citing someone, use their last name. One thing I wonder is if lifespans are longer, could we overpopulate our world even more than it is now, over tax our ecosystems and die from other causes due to over-population. For example, we could die because our species had ruined the balanced ecosystem by extending natural human life cycles way out of balance!

Wow, I love how interested you are in learning different languages. I think it would be nice to know another language, but I do not really want to learn it, it can be a lot of work. I like your take on learning a different language, and I wonder what the differences between media, and textbook ways of learning work. I'm interested to see what you learn.

Re: Small update thing

I think that is a nice and smart strategy to learn language but it somehow depends on whether you like the song or not and your resilience in learning a foreign language by only listening to songs. When you are done with the Japanese song, I would like you to try and learn my native language, Kikuyu. I'm sure it will be fun.

I would love to try, don't know how far I'd get, though. i'm sure there's something online. I agree to does depend on the person. I always say that "If you don't want to learn the target language, you're not going to learn it."
Comment

Re: Small update thing

I think that this is a really interesting and smart way of learning a language. Not everyone can just pick up a language by reading it in a textbook, but learning it through some kind of art form is really cool, and I think that it could be really effective. I'm interested to see your progress with learning the language. Good luck!

Re: I'm doing something entirely new!!!

The fact that you're learning new languages is actually amazing. I think that your project is very unique and it's not just about doing research and posting it. I actually speak Serbian, so I understand how hard it is to understand a song. I'm really looking forward to seeing more posts from you! Good luck!

Flora Xia (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Is this all going to be an interview or is it going to be intercut with footage of other things? Is there a stylistic mood to this whole thing or is it just kind of a journalism/newscast type of video. How long are you planning for this to be? Do you have interview questions yet? (Sorry if this is answered in any of your previous posts I haven't taken the time to look yet)

Re: Technology Famine Debrief

It was a nice action for people to sacrifice their technology so as to attend and take part in the tech famine. I loved how the idea well the idea was taken by the whole school, at first we were only going to have the technology famine during the event but the whole school took part and not so many people were on their phones. Everyone from the teachers to the students took part in one way or another. As the main organizers of the tech famine, what else did you learn? how differently would...

This is so awesome, do you want to do this at our school because no one ever participates in anything. I am surprised how long it took to organize, but it seems like it was worth it. From what you are saying this seems like it was a great event, and perfect with James just arriving. This sounds so much fun I wish I was there. Really cool great job!

It actually depends with some people as some will live to talk about their experience in their new visit to certain place or country,others may forget it very easily and continue leading their past normal life as if their visit was just for fun,here I guess it all depends with ones value in their cultural exchange.

Re: A quick lesson on Japanese pronunciation and writing systems

Audrey Heath (Charles Best) ·
This is so weird because it seems so different from English. I would prefer the whole world just speak English. It would be so much easier. Learning a second language is hard, and some people learn multiple languages, which I find crazy. As much as I would like to be able to speak another language I just can't. I am taking French right now, and that is hard enough. It is weird how we can all be saying the same thing but it sounds so different to everyone.

Re: Update March-media language learning

Wow, I can't stop thinking about my tongue placement now! I've always found Linguistics to be a very interesting subject. Recently I had traveled to Germany and a few months beforehand I decided to teach myself German. It's been a few months since I can back and even though I am not remotely fluent I still catch myself sometimes thinking and responding to things in German. I look forward to the rest of you're inquiry.

Re: Update March-media language learning

Wow this is an amazing project to be taking on! The thing you said about how English speakers rest their tongue on the roof of their mouth makes a lot of sense to me. It's sort of why people have accents. For example, if you listen to people who speak Spanish, they often have a lisp. Like instead of pronouncing the word "Barcelona" like "Bar-se-lo-na" they pronounce it "Bar-theh-lo-na. It'll be interesting to see what you find about different languages, I look forward to reading more of your...
