Found In Translation – Inspire Club Classes

Found In Translation

Hone your linguistic sleuthing skills as you learn strategies for decoding a range of unknown languages from around the world – including Esperanto, a constructed language which anyone can learn.


Workshop One: Exploring Esperanto

Students will be introduced to Esperanto, a constructed language invented in the nineteenth century to encourage communication across cultures. In doing so, they will develop their language skills, and come up with strategies for approaching unfamiliar languages and cultures, before debating the question “Would it be better if we all spoke the same language?”


Workshop Two: Family Holiday

Using the skills developed in the first workshop, students will decode written and spoken passages in a range of new languages from across the world: Croatian, Danish, Icelandic, and Kelabit.
