The new school

#362: You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to young minds?

Thinking back, I can’t really fault the ways in which my school operated. The only things I’d add are fun things such as learning more unique sports i.e. more dance based or learning how to swim like a mermaid; it would have been nice to learn various words and phrases in more languages; and more digital based/media skills (although back in those days we were just learning how to touch type!).

I got skills

#22: If you could choose to be a master (or mistress) of any skill in the world, which skill would you pick?

I’d choose languages. I’d love nothing more than to master lots of different languages (or even just a few), both spoken and signed, as I hate how restricted it makes me feel when I meet someone that I can’t communicate with. It would be absolutely fascinating to hear other peoples life stories and do so with ease. I chose this skill as I know that I won’t ever be able to master multiple languages, whereas the other skills I want to gain, I know that I can achieve.
