We all speak English. Don’t we? It seems so natural, to expect everyone to know how to speak English. How to type. All the small activities that make our daily life what it is.
But no one seems to have told the students of the Dommasandra Urdu Government School. Every Tuesday, these children travel from their school and come to Inventure to learn things that are deemed common knowledge.The students are determined to learn, and that’s what counts. And they are not alone. The students of 10 ICSE are helping them to widen the scope of our ever growing world. Slowly and painstakingly they type the English letters, letters that are foreign to them. But they don’t give up. They want to learn the letters and computer skills which are so vital in the present world.
Over the weeks, it’s not just the vocabulary and typing skills that have developed, but friendships as well by sitting together and practicing typing. They have worked hard and so have 10 ICSE. Starting from an almost nonexistent knowledge of computers to learning a new language, how to type, how to navigate through Microsoft Word, how to download pictures, change fonts- these kids have done it all. And to be truthful, they have taught us several things as well.
