HAN-GLE


The kid is progressing slowly, he started two nights ago with a subset of the alphabet and is now almost done memorizing two-thirds of the symbols. I placed the kid in an actual test to see if he can see the difference. It went like this:

  • Do you see the English text above?
  • Yes, of course I can read it.
  • Now, try reading the symbols below.
  • Well, the letters are mixed up.
  • That’s right, the text go circular as you read a syllable.
  • OK, now I get it.
  • Try reading it the way it was written.
  • The first symbol is T.
  • Yup…
  • Followed by ae?
  • Go on…
  • k….u…o…n
  • Keep going
  • d….o….
  • Ya got it.
  • Hey!
