Three Months Later... (written by Hunter) - NSLI-Y Taiwan

Three Months Later... (written by Hunter) - NSLI-Y Taiwan | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

...  it can be difficult to explain how amazing yet vexing the process of learning a language can be for someone who has never done it before. ...

 

Imagine that you are a self-aware caterpillar. All your life, you’ve been chewing on the same leaves with your caterpillar friends, crawling on seven-year-old humans, and generally being very hungry. You’re getting kind of fat, but that’s cool. Your friends are too, so no worries. One day without warning, one of those traitorous little seven-year-olds plucks your fuzzy self from your leaf and sticks you on a tree inhabited by hundreds of butterflies. Suddenly, being a chubby caterpillar is no longer the vogue. You have to adapt. So you give it your best effort, and slowly (but surely!) you finally begin to work on your cocoon. Before you finish your chrysalis, you are free to watch your butterfly neighbors and try to do exactly as they do—mimicking movements (in the case of language, sounds) but soon you realize that without context (or proper anatomy—or grammar!) you’re going nowhere. ...

allAfrica.com: Africa: WIPSEN-Africa Receives U.S.$81,000

allAfrica.com: Africa: WIPSEN-Africa Receives U.S.$81,000 | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

About 50 young girls are expected to benefit from over US$81,000 grant agreement signed with the Women Peace and Security Network-Africa (WIPSEN) and Chevron-Liberia for the implementation of an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and leadership skills training program that would lead to job placement.

 

Leymah Gbowee, also a 2011 Nobel Peace Prize winner outlined the project's objectives as saying; it would provide access to technology skills training, foster a work culture among Liberian youths and increase exposure to employment opportunities by empowering the youths and providing direct opportunities for participants to explore current and emerging job opportunities.

 

...  a survey conducted by iEARN-Liberia reveals over 90% of Liberian students are not computer literate or have no access to computers making them less competitive on the job market and unattractive to employers who require applicants for jobs to have basic computer knowledge. But he said what is unique about the program is that it closes the gap that exists between acquiring skills and applying what is learnt.
