I went down to the beach to find a little quiet time to write up some notes on my computer for a news report on our experiences. After a short time, three older girls started watching over my shoulder. One in particular watched intently for some 5-10 minutes. After a bit, I stopped what I was doing to show her the computer. She didn’t want to try typing, so I pulled up Audacity and recorded myself whistling. She laughed. I tried to get her to say something but she wouldn’t, so I made a few other sounds and played them back. She laughed each time. Finally she started saying “nao” and “oui” into the mic, and I played that back and she laughed even harder. Then a friend of hers joined us and they both started talking into the computer and laughing as it was played back. Finally, the first girl encouraged the second girl to sing a song together. They were very pleased when I played it back. Next we played around with Photobooth, and they especially enjoyed seeing themselves after viewing the special effects. The episode led to a few more youth joining me, including one who had taken english for a year and wanted to practice. But up to that point, conversations were all non-verbal. And even then, with the boy practicing his rough english wdere facilitated by having pictures of my life available, and songs from iTunes. In all, it was a great diversion from work!
