It is time to put everything in the right box!
|Authors:||Duarte Ferreira, Guilherme|
|Abstract:||When was the last time that you ever felt that you did not know how to read? Probably some years ago… maybe when you were 6 years old? Well, I felt just like that when I reached Crete (Greece), in June of 2018 when I was 23 years old. I had just arrived for my first secondment, as ESR3 of the MSCA ITN MixITiN project. It is always strange when we travel to a foreign country and do not know the language, but it is even worse to reach a place where you cannot even recognise the alphabet! I felt like I was looking into a set of randomly placed hieroglyphs with no meaning at all. Can you imagine trying to buy an item at the supermarket and the only thing you know is that there is a special code that you have to remember every time you want to buy it again? After the initial shock of the very different written language, I was introduced to the staff at the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research whose names also looked like hieroglyphs to me. However, when they pronounced their names, the coded language suddenly started to make sense to me! I could finally see the words behind the symbols!|
