a miscellanea

Tuesday

Today we continued learning about grammar and phonetics and such… Grammar is interesting..though in school I remember being bored to death by it.. Phonetics is challenging… And the subjects of Literacy and Translation have opened my eyes up to things I hadn’t really thought about before. Dinner was from the Central African Republic – really delicious. And the member from CAR who presnted her ministry there was very engaging and increased my interest in the role of non-Nationals in partnering with native speakers in translation. She did a excellent job explaining the various facets of translation work and some of the joys and some of the difficulties of that work. All in all a very profitable day.
