PictoSon APP's insight:

Back in 99 We decided to go for 2 months and a half to Berlin, rent an appartment and see how life was over there

 

After studing 98-99 one year of German in Vigo´s Escuela de Idiomas (school of languages), me and my sister got there and had a great and sometimes difficult times.

 

Evolution in communication was clear..as we landed, all German I heard was a continual noise while german where speaking. After a couple of weeks I understood words that I could even look for in German dictionary. I understood situations later on..but at least..I could understand something.

 

Noise in communication makes you fear communication. How do you know if they are saying something nice or not so nice. Normally, we would say no with a smile..and get out of the way.

 

But what about instantaneously communications. That is when frustration comes up...You go to a restaurant..and waiter says....something like..

 

Schmecken Sie..****(something)... with a smile.

 

Was ist Schmecken ? Schmecken Schmecken...what is he saying? if food has a good taste..or Bon appetit..apparently he´s waiting a feedback from our side...gosh..

 

in a harry we said GUT but this situation is not that clear..We missed an opportuny to communicate and anxiety and doubts arouse.  We did not need to speak about Freud with this waiter but those doubts and anxiety were frustrating, for both parts because We did all want to share and communicate.

In fact for those who could never understand what that is...and what is that for ...I suggest to go to El Begga for a month...there you will see the sun the moon and the stars...houses and stones...and people talking in taschelhit... no libraries...or books around ...no images...just desert... There in that situation ACC is what you need if you are a grown up....in a month I learn to say sun,moon,stars, foreigner and local We did communicate a lot witout words...but learning chances were so narrow..if We had had Pictoson there I can tell you We would have been so rich. I was frustrated, because I wanted to ask many things about many different subjects and to share more experiences. On the other hand Children could talk about frogs..and their survival if they were taken away from the oasis into dry desertic areas. They did not need words when they were together and they understood themselves perfectly. As soon as a grown up came closer to kids..words were needed and incommunication was a fact a nouveau.

PictoSon APP's insight:

Mapas semánticos... Great Matrioska technique...IN an Out, Out and In...How a single look can teach you to describe an image, a word. How can this single page can offer you a way to discover all the vocabulary..sorrounded by a tree...

 

How FUNtastique to offer a posibility to go inside a single image / word and open it ..and see what is inside.

 

How clear to understand where do We get our fruits from? A couple of years Ago (when I was 40) I discovered that chestnuts could grow up spontaneously from fallen nuts..how can this happen? I thought that humans planted Chestnuts..I did never imagine that a nut could transform into a chestnut. How could I be amazed by a UK friend that said when he was 8 that milk came from cartons kept in the fridge if I have such a misconceptions at 40 even having a lot of farm working experience.

 

Augmented reality  it is here to make this happen...What are we waiting for?

"Comunicar es más que hablar ...son miradas, gestos, sonidos y emociones que nos descubren el interior de las personas. Hay que confiar en las posibilidades comunicativas de las personas y aprender a escucharlas" http://comunicaresmasquehablar.blogspot.com.es/2010/12/libro-comunicacion-sin-habla.html

Pictoson approach is to blend this AAC communication with a multiligual approach. Our main interest is to enhance communication.
